I am creating a beamer presentation with several plots and tikz figures. It takes a long time to compile and view. This is only amplified by the fact that texstudio apparently runs pdflatex and the bibliography several times. While this behavior is usually desirable, it is wasting a lot of time and I don't need to regenerate the bibliography to draft my slideshow. I could substantially speed up my compiles if I could get texstudio to ignore the bibliography. I did both of the following:
(1) comment out the code that creates bibliography slides (2) Options -> Configure Texstudio -> Build, and removed the bib commands from the command stream. However, it still tries to compile the bib and throws message boxes stating "Command txs:///bibliography not defined". So clearly it's still trying to take care of the bibliography.
I'm not sure what the MWE would be here. It's more of a texstudio question.
NOTE: I can avoid this problem by commenting out all the citations, but that is not an elegant or efficient lasting solution.
