Created attachment 224665
An archive containing test.h, Doxyfile and testref.bib. Using this file to generate html and latex output illustrates the problem well.

I have been using the cite command together with brief within a few different doxygen comment context such as module, class, struct, function and typedef. The comments resides within C++ code.



  • \defgroup grp1 Group 1
  • \brief Foo bar see \cite report:FooBar
  • Detailed foo bar.

And the result I get is that the cite and everything written after it in the brief ends up in detailed description section of the different contexts and it is no difference between the Latex and the HTML output.

I have tested this with 1.8.4 in RedHat 5.6 and the issue still remains.

/**@brief See \cite report:FooBar

  • Detalied foo bar.
    class FooBar
    virtual ~FooBar()

This results in the following PDF

X.X FooBar Class Reference
X.X.1 Detailed Description
Detailed foo bar.
