comment Can you define what a reference should say in clear text?
No matter how I do, I get the error message /Tmp.aux:6: Undefined control sequence. l.6 \APACbibcite {Moody2003}{\citeauthoryear {Moody}{Moody}{{\APACyear {2003}}}} Moody2003 is a reference I'm using in other papers I'm writing, I haven't even tried to invoke it here. I'm taking this to a regular forum to get it troubleshot.

Yes, Mendeley generates a bib-file. However, I can't get it to work with BibLaTeX-apa and I just inferred that this was because of the file I tried to use it with. To find documentation about these things in any other language than geek seems to be really hard :)

@Alan This shows up as: "Baker, A. (2010, January). Simplicity (Spring ed., Vol. 33) (No. 1&2). Available from plato.stanford .edu/archives/spr2010/entries/simplicity/". Half of these data I haven't even punched in in Mendeley and I can't find any fields to edit it (for example the month entry). Maybe I could change it, with some time, but I have a deadline and I rather use my brain resources for writing on my actual thesis rather than to try to get LaTeX to do what I want without "cheating". (Note that this is BibTeX not BibLaTeX, see my comment on Audrey's answer.)

This is great. Does anyone know of a thread which talkes about how you can use BibLaTeX-apa in conjunction with Mendeley? As I understand it, Mendeley only create files that can be used with BibTeX (that's why I changed my description above to be about apacite rather than BibLaTeX-apa).

@Audrey No, you're completely right. I don't know why I use both either. I'll edit the question to only include biblatex-apa.

Exactly. That's one of the problems. In my case, the file gets regenerated by Mendeley so I would have to move it to another location and modify it right before I'm done with my text. However, I'm still not sure if I would be able to modify the file in such a way so that it looked the way I wanted.

Thanks, I'll save those questions as references if I want to do something similar later. For the time being, this solution fits me perfectly though so there's no reason to change it.

I'm on it. Thanks for all your help. I found the following thread: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/14570/…. I'll see if I can decipher it :)

Well, it seems that what I will have to do is to temporally switch the font of the math environment since I want to use math symbols within the txfonts package (but at the same time, I don't want to change the default font for the math environment). This seems hard :S

I was pretty sure there were some info about this to on SE. Thanks for referring me to the right threads. I'll come back here and mark your answer as accepted as soon as I get it to work :)
