I've tried to use \cite{*} in my main .tex file (which is full of writing). It didn't add in the uncited refs. It just included those refs called elsewhere by \cite{x}. The I deleted all contents between \begin{document}...\end{document} (except the bibliography commands and \cite{*}), then it works. So there is something in the main body of my document that is preventing \cite{*} from working.

In the long run I'm wishing to use refcheck to see what I haven't yet cited.

Has anybody seen this behaviour before? Sorry I haven't included a MWE as there are quite a few packages. thanks

    I believe you're looking for \nocite{*} – egreg Sep 26 '14 at 19:36

Use \nocite{*} to include all entries in the .bib file and \nocite{<key>} to include specific entries.

  • ack. thanks. egg on face. Sometimes working by memory doesn't always work out well. – mfolkes Sep 27 '14 at 3:48
