I am using biblatex and biber. Inside the text I use the commands citet, parencites or citewith author-year. I would like to prevent that the last name sometimes gets hyphenated in the text.

Is there a command for bibsetup? Unfortunately I could not find something in the manual. Or is there any other possibility so that the last name stays as one part.

Thank you... Christian

  • the answer to this question might help: No hyphen for a word Nov 19, 2014 at 20:08
  • Then the entire entry is inside the box, but in my case the name must not be hyphenated but could deb separated from the year. Any further ideas?

  • i believe that with some bibliography systems, the space between author and year in citations is set up to not break. to be able to provide a more specific answer, we will need an actual (minimal) example to experiment with. Nov 24, 2014 at 13:49
