Bibdesk getting clobbered #9
Latexing has trashed my global bibliography file:
I use a
When I compiled my document, I got a pop-up saying:
I assumed this would update the local copy of only the necessary entries for this manuscript. However, after clicking
The culprit is that it is renaming fields:
I don't think you should be editing the global file at all. If there is a compelling reason, please warn the user explicitly that it is the global file that will be modified!
Hi thanks for that, that is not how it should be. LaTeXing do not make any changes to your global bib file (that would be useless since it should be your global file exported from somewhere else) the access is read only!!
Ok we need to figure it out what happened there. So your bib file in your project is my_bibdesk.bib and what's the name of your project bib?
Mmm, because the message says the following:
So then it is clear that my_bibdesk will be updated somehow but that shouldn't be the case, it should update it in tm_adaptive.bib or however you call that file.
This only thing what I can imagine is that you also included the my_bibdesk.bib in your LaTeX project (and this files are writable by LaTeXing).
If you say you haven't done that, could you send me your LaTeX project via email do I can have a closer look what could have happen?
Ok let me explain it, the system is always the same for all remote bibliography systems like Mendeley, Zotero, etc and also the Global Bibliography file.
Normally you are having a Remote.bib where all the remote bib items are saved and then before every compile LaTeXing check's the remote sources for updates and saves this update on your system.
In case you just wanna continue to use it like it was (with TeXShop in your case) just don't use the global bibliography option and you are good.
Ok, I am not using a remote service. I just have a single, local master bibliography that all my manuscripts reference.
I would like that file to never be edited (by Latexing), but every single manuscript uses it! Is there a way to automate this in Latexing, or should I just use the method I had before (the explicit
I expected the
