I am attempting to create an APA citation of the format (Rubinstein, 1994, p. 773).

The instructions I found online say to use:

\parencite[p.~773]{Rubinstein1994}, 

with the following set-up:

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

It sort of worked, but then I changed the style to apa, then apalike and then back again to authoryear which seems to have wrecked something since now my citations only show up as (Rubinstein1985) which is the citation key, not the citation.

I use TeXpad and have typeset multiple times. Any hints are much appreciated!

    what happens if you delete the .aux and .bbl and retry the compiling process?

  • No change, unfortunately. What I did was enable hidden files and then deleted them from the .texpad.tmp folder.

    Or is that only when used with iOS? I'm confused. Some of the other questions suggest you use it with MacTeX. Others that it is standalone and has a built in compiler.

    Note that with biblatex you can leave out the page prefix p.~ and just go with \parencite[773]{Rubinstein1994} the suitable prefix will be inserted automatically. If it worked before, it should work again if you just delete the temporary files (.aux, .bbl, .bcf) and try again. Note that apalike is not a style known to biblatex, so it will cause an error.
