I use LyX with biblatex 2.9a, biber 1.9 and the authoryear-comp style. My biblatex configuration is below:


When I insert two citations from the same authors and years (this is \citet{author2014a,author2014b} in the source code panel), I want LyX / LaTeX to produce

Author (2014a, b)

At least, this is what I guess should be returned from the authoryear-comp style. Instead, I get

Author (2014a), b

I get the same result when I insert the following LaTeX code as ERT: \textcite{author2014a,author2014b}.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

  • Which biblatex and biber version? – Ulrike Fischer Feb 26 '15 at 15:05

    When I was trying to build a MWE I figured out where the problem came from. Earlier, I added some code in order to define the authors' names as hyperlinks as well (copied from somewhere). Outcommenting these lines leads to the desired citation result and I can live without hyperlinked names. – der_grund Mar 3 '15 at 9:45

    @MatthiasGomolka Would you like to add an answer, or should we close this question? – Torbjørn T. Mar 29 '15 at 8:39

    Closing the question would be best. – der_grund Mar 30 '15 at 8:15

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about a problem that is not in the question (additional code modifying the behaviour of cite commands) and has since been resolved by the OP themselves (see comments above). – moewe Mar 30 '15 at 9:01

From the lyx wiki

To change from bibtex to biber, go toLyX→Preferences→Settings→Output→LaTeX and change the bibtex commandfrom bibtex to biber (you can also input biber options, if you need them). Also note that you should pass the option backend=biber (instead ofbackend=bibtex) to the \usepackage[...]{biblatex} call if you use biber, although this is not strictly necessary anymore in recent biblatex releases which default to biber if you do not pass the backend option at all.

  • I am not sure how this answers the OPs question. Apparently, he is already (and successfully) using LyX with biblatex and biber, but has an issue regarding the resulting citation style. – Daniel Feb 27 '15 at 9:19
  • This is true. Apart from the rather small problem that I desdribed above, biblatex, biber and LyX work fine. I followed the instructions from the LyX Wiki. – der_grund Feb 27 '15 at 10:49
