My cites look like this:

enter image description here

How to delete the name of the reference?

My code is the next:




\newcommand{\veryhigh}[3]% base, exponent, text
{   \begin{tikzpicture}
        \node (tempnode-0) at (0,0) {$#1$};
        \foreach \mytext [count=\c] in {#2}
        { \pgfmathtruncatemacro{\b}{\c-1}
            \node[above right,font=\tiny,inner sep=3pt] (tempnode-\c) at (tempnode-\b) {$\mytext$};
        \draw [decoration={brace,amplitude=4pt,mirror,raise=2pt},decorate] ($(tempnode-1.south east)+(-0.13,0.13)$) -- node[below right=1mm,font=\tiny] {#3} ($(tempnode-\maxexp.south east)+(-0.13,0.13)$);

\newtheorem{proposicion}{Proposici\'on} \newtheorem{ejemplo}{Ejemplo}
\setlength{\voffset}{-60 pt}
\setlength{\textwidth}{420 pt}

  • BTW: There is more clumsiness with your code. For example hyperref is loaded very early, but should be loaded almost as last package (if the documentation of the package does not state to load it after hyperref), packages are loaded more than once, setting \parindent to 0 without setting \parskip (I would suggest to use package parskip) is usually not recommended …

You are loading package showkeys, which is used to show they keys of labels, references and cites. This can be useful while writing a new document, but should be deactivated in the final document. To do so you can just remove the package or load it with explicit option final, either changing




or changing




and optionally adding


If you just want to stop showing the keys of \cite but still want so show the keys at the thebibliography environment and other keys, you can switch of redefinition of \cite using:


See the showkeys manual for more information about the package and the options.

BTW: Because you are using class amsart (without option nomath) you don't need to load amsmath explicitly here. The class does already load it. amssymb is also loaded implicitly and can be removed here.
