I found out that I can use \doplacepublicationindeed{Someone2016} to typeset a single publication ahead of time.

I can’t figure out how to influence the way numbers are typeset:


will result in

tex error       > tex error on line 24 in file parts/c_publist.ctx: ! 
Missing number, treated as zero

<to be read again> 
\currentlistsymbol ->\edef 
                           \p_symbol {\listparameter \c!symbol }\doifelseins...
\romannumerals #1->\clf_romannumerals \numexpr #1
\publistnumber #1->\romannumerals {#1}
                                      \hfill ~
\spac_align_simple_left #1->{#1
                               \hss }
\25>:135>:abc ...umbercommand \currentlistsymbol }
                                                  \else \setbox \b_strc_list...

If I define this instead:


… the log will contain >>>\currentlistsymbol.

  • try \setuppublicationlist[numbercommand={\publistnumber}]. I remember having troubles with macro keys that weren't in braces. Don't garanty it works in your case. – sztruks Aug 30 '19 at 14:35

    Would you mind adding a fully compiliable MWE? – sztruks Aug 30 '19 at 16:39

    It's unclear what you are trying to do. The command \doplacepublicationindeed is from the oldbibtex module. You should be using the integrated publications module nowadays. – Henri Menke Sep 1 '19 at 22:36
