I am writing a document in LyX which involves citations only. There is no text or anything else that could cause trouble.
My problem: LyX does not generate either the citations or the bibliography. In the PDF, I see only question marks and no References section.
I have been using LyX for a couple of years and it is only in the new versions that I face this problem.
What I have done:
- Insert>List/TOC>Bibtex Bibliography>Add database, change the style to chicago (or any other, this has no influence.)
- In the text itself: Insert>Citation>Added a citation from the left column to the right column>Ok.
- clear biber cache.
- Selected alternatively "Default", "Natbib" and "Jurabib" in the citation style and selected "biber","bibtex","bibtex8"
I can see both the BibTeX generated bibliography and the citation. When I put the pointer on the first, I see the name of the database and the options, which leads me to believe that LyX is capable of "reading" the file from BibTeX. For the citation, when I put the pointer on it I can see the content of the key.
I am using LyX 2.1.4 (latest version), JabRef 2.8.1 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. I have updated through the MiKTeX Package Manager the packages that could be updated.
I have seen in several threads here on stackexchange that this could be due to the LyX pipe. I do not know what this is nor what it does. In the Tools>Preferences>Paths, the LyXServer pipe field is empty. Is this a problem? If so, where is this "pipe" ?
Thank you very much !
