As the title says, the command \footfullcite{test} does not give the full citation, but only the label "test", "test1" and "test2", respectively. I'm using biblatex and the beamer class (downloaded yesterday, so hopefully the newest versions).

Any ideas? :(






    author  = {Shen Lin and Brian W. Kernighan},
    title   = {An Effective Heuristic Algorithm for the Travelling-Salesman Problem},
    journal = {Operations Research},
    volume  = {21},
    year    = {1973},
    pages   = {498--516},

  title = {The Infamous Test},
  publisher = {Testington Test},
  year = {2007},
  author = {John Doe},
  address = {Testville},

  author = {Testi, T.},
  year = {2003},
  title = {Testartikel},
  journal = {Testjournal}


\frametitle{Introduction and motivation - the title}
\section[Motivation]{Introduction and motivation}
test text \footfullcite{test}\\test text 1 \footfullcite{test1}\\test text 2 \footfullcite{test2}


here the result:

    I think I get the desired output. Have you run pdflatex, then bibtex, then pdflatex twice?

  • actually I used the MikTeX standard, which is pdfLaTeX + MakeIndex + BibTeX. I did this several times with and without deleting the .aux file. I also tried as you said: pdfLaTeX + BibTeX twice, but this doesn't change anything...

    If your biblatex is up to date, it wants biber not biblatex. Either run biber or add backend=bibtex to the options when loading biblatex. May 30 '13 at 19:23

    FWIW, I have this problem as well and the comments were helpful in solving it. Oct 26 '13 at 15:19
