I'm a graduate student in Chinese history, and I'm trying to learn LaTeX for writing my dissertation.

comment Adding a date to disambiguate books with same title in biblatex
I tried this solution because I have the same problem (citing different copies of the same book, since they contain different marginalia left by readers), so I tried the above solution by changing year to addendum (the field in which I have the note on the call number of the copy in question), and compiled with [notes,short]{biblatex-chicago} but nothing happened. Is this expected? Thanks!

comment How can I print only Author-Date of the parent crossref in the bibliography entry of the child of the crossref?
I don't know if it's of any importance, but I'm using the biblatex-chicago package.

comment A circular table? (where the rows form concentric circles)
Sure, I'll hope to be able to do that soon, I'm still working on it!

comment A circular table? (where the rows form concentric circles)
No it was PERFECT. Actually, I would like to shamelessly ask if you know how I can make a small circle in one of the "orbits" like the circles surrounding 一、二、三、四 in this picture (db.tt/fHFISYYV). I also don't know how to write something in the center of the circle (學 in this case). The rest I can figure out myself at this point. Thanks again for all the help!

I got everything working, and managed to adapt it to reconstruct a similar graph. Thanks a million!

That is beautiful and looks exactly like what I need. I haven't explored it yet to see that it can do all that I need, but I will right away. But I just have one question now. How do I change the Latin font in the picture? I tried to add \begin{tikzpicture}[font=\mainfont] and the like but it doesn't work.

comment A circular table? (where the rows form concentric circles)
Beautiful! Sorry, I don't know tikz very well; how do I change the list of letters for every row? In case not all rows will contain the same sequence of letters. Thank you!

That works! Yeah I need the fallback for my Korean font. Thank you so much!

comment Why doesn't my Chinese character display properly?
Thanks, that's really helpful for me in the future; I couldn't figure out how to verify whether a glyph was present or not, but now I know! But as the other answer showed, the whole thing unfortunately leaves me with a bigger problem.

I see. It works for me too if I don't load xeCJK. Unfortunately, I need to load that package to sort out other font stuff, so this is kind of a conundrum... Thanks a lot though!
