I am using Windows 8 64 bit, TeXStudio and MiKTeX, and I am trying to implement the following code in my work:

How to split bibliography into "works cited" and "works not cited"?

Now, biblatex works just fine and everything, but I am having some trouble splitting my references in a cited and a non-cited part.

My problem is the following: Let's say I have two items in my bibliography. When I cite the first item, it shows up in the references part, but the second item does not show up in the “further reading” part. Now when I cite the second item and compile, it does show up in the References part. When I then remove the citation of the second item in the document, and then compile twice, it does show up in the further reading cathegory. Summary:


References article1

Further readings empty

After that:


References article1 article2

Further readings empty



and compile two times:

References article1

Further readings article2

Isn't it strange? Of course I would like if I wouldn't have to go through this procedure, as I have a bibliography of more than 40 items, still growing. I should be able to compile the last configuration directly, and that then article 2 would show up directly under Further readings. ;)

I am using:





\printbibliography[title={Further reading},notcategory=cited,resetnumbers=true]


What I think might be the problem, is that \AtEveryCitekey and \thefield are marked as unrecognized commands in TeXStudio.

Do you know what might be the problem?

  • This question does not fall within the scope of TeX, LaTeX or related typesetting systems as defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Apr 26 '14 at 10:52
  • TeXstudio is only an editor. Therefore it does not recognize every command which can be loaded through some LaTeX package. Only the most common ones are build in. – Rüdiger Voigt Apr 26 '14 at 11:06
  • I was just generating a MWE, when i recognized that i had forgotten to put the following command: \nocite{*}. I think that this is the problem, but now i am getting the error message: Emergency stop. No "backend" specified, using Biber backend. – Michael Apr 26 '14 at 11:08
  • Which i just now could resolve. It seems to work now! Sorry, for your time, it really only was this line missing, so i think the reason why i had to go through this complicated procedure is because by default, latex doesn't put the items of the bibliography as non-cited items. – Michael Apr 26 '14 at 11:11

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a problem arising when not using the necessary commands (see comments above) that has since been resolved. – moewe Apr 26 '14 at 14:50
