How can I make my references by JabRef to come in [1-3] instead of [1,2,3]
could you post a screenshot?
Are you talking about the way your bibliography is portrayed in Latex? Are you talking about page numbers or something?
What you see is the Reference within the text. The reference within the text is based on the citation-style you have chosen to use.
Which text-editor are you using? Is this Libreoffice, OpenOffice, is it Microsoft Word or is it Latex?
Depending on the answer, a limited amount of default jstyles are currently offered to you (see here: https://jstyles.jabref.org/) You might have to use a different style or adapt your style via the Export-Filter Editor for Jabref (GitHub - teertinker/Export-Filter-Editor). If you are operating within a latex environment, you might wanna check out the Biblatex documentation page 74 (https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/biblatex/doc/biblatex.pdf)
Additionally, with latex, if you insist on using your current style instead of using another style, the cite package might be able to modify it: https://texdoc.org/serve/cite.pdf/0
I am using Microsoft Word
Pleaz ineed to solve my problem
In word you can change the bibliography-style and hence the style of the in-text citation here:
Try some of the other styles. Maybe one of them uses [1-3] rather than [1, 2, 3]. If you don’t like them, there is a guide about how to change the styles here: Create Custom Bibliography Styles | Microsoft Docs
What i find of interest, but is not related to your problem, is which modus operandi you use to export the jabref citations to Microsoft Word? I myself mostly use Latex, but whenever i have to use Microsoft Word because i am required to do so, i rather use Citavi for managing my references and the style, because it is so complicated to do so with Jabref.
Does somebody know if the Jabref Word Addin (GitHub - JabRef/JabRef-Word-Addin) can change/manipulate the bibliographystyle? Does it use the jstyles, the CSL-styles from entry-preview or does it use the styles provided by Microsoft Word?
- I tried all of the other styles. does not work with me
I am so sorry man because I got you busy
@ThiloteE The JabRef Word Addin uses CSL. But it’s not yet ready to be used with JabRef. Slowly but steady working on it.
For the simple way: Export to Microsoft Word - JabRef
No Problem @ebrahim. Sorry i can’t help you more. Also thank you Christoph for the follow up.
