I'm using the following to change the order of note and pages fields for @article.


I struggle to find something similar for @inproceedings. I guess the note+pages marco is not used there. How can I find out which macro is used instead?

    With @inproceedings the note field is printed with a simple \printfield{note}% in the driver and then later the pages come with usebibmacro{chapter+pages}%. You could simply use the addendum field which is printed later. Or you could re-order the driver (maybe even with xpatch), or you could save the note field, then clear it and print the saved field later.

Following moewe's suggestion, I use xpatch's \xpatchbibdriver to remove the \printfield{note} and then to add it before the \usebibmacro{doi+eprint+url}:

  date         = 1979,
  booktitle    = {Aristotle on Mind and the Senses},
  subtitle     = {Quelques aspects de l'interpretation du trait{\'e}, de

  annotation   = {This is a typical \texttt{inproceedings} entry. Note the

                  \texttt{indextitle}, and \texttt{indexsorttitle} fields. Also
                  note the \texttt{eventdate} field.},
  note = {This is a note},
  url = {https://fake.url}

  author       = {Salam, Abdus},
