I use textmaker and I have a problem. The bbl file is not generated from the bib file. How can I solve that?
Not familiar with this IDE but in
kile I use a separate hotkey Alt+- to the one for PDFLaTeX: Alt+6
This may be a related issue. Failing that, run in the console or command-line:
bibtex file.tex #generates a bbl latex file.tex #generates aux,dvi etc pdflatex file.tex # generates a PDF
Running BibTeX on a .tex file will generate a bbl based on the bibliography and citation inputs called within the .tex file (as it only lists those cited).
