I'm having a problem eliminating a leading space which has appeared between the opening bracket and the location of a publisher in Chicago style footnote references created with Biblatex.

For example: ( Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1998) where it should be (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1998).

The problem appeared after upgrading to biblatex-chicago 0.9.7a, biblatex 1.4 and BibDesk 1.5.4 and also occurs when I recompile older source files which formatted the references correctly.

I notice the field 'Address' in BibDesk is now called 'Location' - but I can't see anything about this change in the BibDesk documentation, and it anyway doesn't seem likely that this would cause the problem.

Grateful for any suggestions - I've not been able to find any solutions here or elsewhere.

  • Can you please add a minimal example that illustrates your problem? – Gonzalo Medina Apr 6 '11 at 0:51
  • Sure: with \usepackage{biblatex-chicago} in the preamble this \footcite[][13]{Biardeau:1995pr} produces Madeleine Biardeau, Hinduism: The Anthropology of a Civilization ( Delhi: Oxford University Press, 1995), 13. where it should produce Madeleine Biardeau, Hinduism: The Anthropology of a Civilization (Delhi: Oxford University Press, 1995), 13. The same code had previously worked correctly. – Will Apr 6 '11 at 2:01
  • I think this is fixed in biblatex 1.4a which was a release a couple of days ago. – PLK Apr 7 '11 at 16:05

    @PLK Thanks - I've updated to biblatex 1.4a - the space has gone, but only to be replaced by a zero. Anyway, good to know someone's onto it, guess I'll watch for updates. – Will Apr 11 '11 at 1:26
  • I'm also seeing the leading zero. Thought I was losing my mind. – urschrei Apr 12 '11 at 23:59

This issue has been resolved in biblatex v1.4b.
