# Biber and Biblatex sorting entries wrong when ids are being used

I'm using biblatex with backend=biber to write a document. For simplicity I use "ids" in certain entries in my bibliography but not in others. The problem I am having is that entries with "id" get sorted afterwards even though they should be sorted in order of appearance (sorting=none)

I'm using version of biber: 2.11

In other words, in the example below I am getting,

   This should appear as 1: [2]
and this should appear as 2: [1]


When it should be

   This should appear as 1: [1]
and this should appear as 2: [2]


Any ideas?

My example.tex

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber, sorting=none, style=numeric-comp, firstinits=true, maxnames=4, uniquename=false]{biblatex}
\begin{document}
This should appear as 1:~\cite{id:peskin}
and this should appear as 2:~\cite{Ellis:1991qj}
\end{document}


And my example.bib file:

@book{Peskin:1995ev,
ids          = {id:peskin},
author       = {Peskin, Michael E. and Schroeder, Daniel V.},
title        = {An Introduction to quantum field theory},
year         = {1995},
url          = {http://www.slac.stanford.edu/~mpeskin/QFT.html},
isbn         = {9780201503975},
SLACcitation = {%%CITATION= INSPIRE-407703;%%}
}
@book{Ellis:1991qj,
author         = {Ellis, R. Keith and Stirling, W. James and Webber, B. R.},
title          = {QCD and collider physics},
publisher      = {Cambridge University Press},
year           = {1996},
pages          = {1-435},
SLACcitation   = {%%CITATION = CMPCE,8,1;%%}
}

• Welcome to TeX.SX! This seems to be one of the rare occasions where you need to run Biber twice. I get the expected output if I run LaTeX, Biber, LaTeX, Biber, LaTeX, LaTeX. Unfortunately, there was no Biber re-run request, maybe that could be improved... What versions of biblatex and Biber are you using? Aug 13 '18 at 10:21
• That actually solve the problem! If you put it in the form of an answer I'll accept it! I had to run "pdflatex & biber & pdflatex & biber & pdflatex" to get the correct answer. I'll add the version of latex to the question for reference. Aug 13 '18 at 10:34
