# LyX and biblatex authoryear-comp and same authors: Parentheses wrong [closed]

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

``````\usepackage[backend=biber,style=authoryear-comp,natbib=true]{biblatex}
``````

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

• 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
