When using the
backend=biber option, I get a warning:
package Biblatex warning: Please (re)run Biber on the file:
Result: References are not recognized.
Yes. A similar question does exist – but no solution is provided: Problem getting biber/biblatex/XeLaTeX/TeXworks working together.
biblatex in a nutshell (for beginners) – as a MWE.
backend=bibtex works like charm.
What are the detailed steps to get
backend=biber working? (When people say run that command or another there is a need of context.)
So my editor is TeXnicCenter.
And I have no clue how to run Biber on my file under TeXnicCenter… or any other environment.
Consider me as a simple mortal that really would like to get this solved, save forever and never come back again.
In TexnicCenter I don't have to do anything fancy with the MWE using
backend=bibtex except creating a
.bib file. Then I press
Build current file – and get valid pdf with my references, which is a way it should be – simple and concise. If there is a tendency to recommand
biber for utf-8 support, then we should get fast deployment so this will be adopted faster.
The problem inherently is the same as this one: How to use biber.
