In a document, I use both \cite for some citations, and \footfullcite for other ones. I have a biblatex.cfg file for the configuration. I'd like to be able to have distinct configurations for the two kinds of citations. Is that possible?


This is a \emph{normal} citation~\cite{Anon1}, and a footnote one\footfullcite{Anon2}.

In my biblatex.cfg, I would like things like

\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{\mkbibbold{#1}} % for \cite only
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{title}{\textsc{#1}}    % for \footfullcite only

I am not only interested in distinct \DeclareFieldFormats but also distinct \AtEveryBibitems or \renewbibmacros for instance. Or two distinct configuration files, this would be perfect too.


You could try


(untested as you didn't provide an MWE.

  • Argh! I don't know why but I was so sure that \iffootnote was for \cite commands used in a \footnote that I did not even try. Anyway, thanks! – Bruno Mar 19 '15 at 21:39
