comment Make citation publishing date appear in square brackets when cited in parentheses
@egreg Got your point, looked at APA guidelines again, which actually clarifies that the appropriate citation style in case of my question should be without brackets inside parentheses, cheers.

comment Make citation publishing date appear in square brackets when cited in parentheses
@egreg There is a lot of discussion about parentheses within parentheses (e.g. english.stackexchange.com/questions/28195/double-parentheses) but overall you should use ([]) format. In the context of my question its also an aesthetic choice - I don't like the look of square brackets and its not something you see very often in publication (i.e. you typically see parentheses instead of square brackets). Thats why I don't want square brackets everywhere.

@Malipivo Ok, fair enough, replicable example provided with link to bibliography style.

comment Fast access to bibliography reference key without browsing .bib file
@mafp sure, I use Mendeley to automatically generate bib files, which makes citation key from first author's surname and date. It's quite efficient system, so usually I'm guessing the paper right. But the issue is more when you got a lot of papers from the same author, or you simply don't remember the name exactly. I guess I might have to dive into other editor that has code completion for the time being...

Ok, sorry @PeterGrill you added the link a second later;) I'm digging it now. It should work... I have simple structure with main.tex specifying \include{1/chapter-1} for all chapters, everything is in the cloud.

@PeterGrill Not so functional if you have multiple chapters wrote into separate .tex files

comment Remove colon in the caption of a figure without using caption package
@Mico Yes, I know that, but the point is that if I generate the \listoffigures without giving any name in curly brackets for \caption (i.e. \caption[text]{}) it will create the list but also create a colon for the figure label - which is what I am trying to avoid:)

comment Remove colon in the caption of a figure without using caption package
@Mico It's my first LaTeX submission so thank you for highlighting the issue with modifying journal's default style commands. However, the journal requires me to give figure captions as a list separately from the figures. So I am not sure how to deal with that, without modifying \@makecaption as you, @egreg and @Holle suggested...
