I have a follow-up question to biblatex: displaying all authors of multi-author works in the bibliography.

For that question, in LyX, we cannot simply write \usepackage[maxbibnames=99]{biblatex} in the preamble to address the problem. The reason is stated in https://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex, Using Biblatex with LyX 2.3.0 and newer, step 5.

In the preamble

  • remove \usepackage[…]{biblatex}
  • remove \addbibresource{…}
  • embrace biblatex-related commands with

      <your commands>

Thus, we cannot use \usepackage[maxbibnames=99]{biblatex} in current version of LyX. Then how can we address this problem? I have worked on this for a whole day... Who would propose a solution?


Assuming you have your document set up for biblatex already you can pass options to the package as follows.

  • Go to Document > Settings.
  • Choose Bibliography in the left pane.
  • Under Citation Style, pass your options to biblatex by putting them into the Options field.

The screenshot shows the "LyX: Document Settings" accessed via "Document > Settings" in the "Bibliography" pane. The "Options" field is highlighted and contains the text <code>maxbibnames=999</code>. In the background a LyX document with two example citations and a bibliography is visible.
