I decided to test biblatex with my document, but unfortunately, I am provided with the following error:

..\biblatex.sty! LaTeX Error: Command \bibhang already defined.

Whereas my tex-file is the following:





%Main part

Test \citet{tang2012}


The bib-file contains the test reference and is placed in the same directory. Lastly, I compile the code using TeXMaker and the following procedure:

PdfLaTeX + Bib(la)tex + PdfLaTeX(x2) + View Pdf

Reinstalling the biblatex package has not fixed the error, nor has switching to natbib solved it. In fact, it remains the same while pointing towards the natbib.sty

Any suggestions appreciated.

    Don't use the authordate1-4 package. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 12 '17 at 15:02

    subfigure ought not be used: it is obsolete. Consider subfig or subcaption instead. – cfr Mar 12 '17 at 16:19

Don't use the authordate1-4 package. It clashes with biblatex.
