When I run the script below with Quick Build it picks up very old versions of the .bib file chap2.bib that is long since gone







I have tried many times using the {Latex, Bibtex, Latex, Latex} formula. It makes no difference.

There's a similar question answered on 22 Nov 2017 by Danilo Gregorin to a post entitled 'TeXMaker doesn't recognize updates in the .bib file', but I don't know how to set the path he suggests in MikTex.

Does this work if you set the path as suggested or are there any other suggestions?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! What does "Quick Build" means (only pdflatex?)? Why does Latex/Bibtex need three passes to clear up all warnings?.

    In order to update your bibliography you will need to run pdfLaTeX+BibTeX+pdfLaTeX+pdfLaTeX, it might be your issue here. You can set your quickbuild to do that in TexMaker

  • Press F11, press quick build again.

  • F11 seems to work (amazing solution! who would have known?) only I have to keep repeating it.. Many thanks for 'getting me off the rocks'. Jun 1 '18 at 7:22
