Videos on using KBibTeX

with 4 comments

KBibTeX has several nice features which simplify your daily work when you edit BibTeX files. In this blog post, I’d like to show you three small videos on some basic operations in KBibTeX.

The most basic operation is to add a new entry, which is demonstrated in the first video:

The second video shows you how to search for a reference on the Internet. In this example, Google Scholar is used to find a reference on Robert Sedgewick’s `Algorithms in C++’:

In the last video, duplicates in a BibTeX file are found and merged into a single entry. When merging entries, you can interactively select the fields to be kept in the resulting entry.

P.S. I’d like to thank my sister for dubbing the videos.
