In our second Scrivener tutorial I will show how to keep a bibliography along with your Scrivener file. I’m describing how MultiMarkdown needs bibliography entries to be formatted in order to reformat them when the file is being exported as a LaTeX document. The bibliography itself will be organized by BibDesk.
To create a citation using MMD use the following syntax:
Everything inside the first pair of square brackets will be readable in the text, without the brackets, of course. In the second pair of square brackets a unique citation key needs to be put. That unique key needs to be kept in a .bib file, using BibDesk.
Last but not least, the .bib needs to be referenced from Scrivener. Define in the MultiMarkdown Settings in Scrivener a new key named “BibTeX”. Write the relative path to the bibliography file in the right textfield and click OK. Now “Compile Draft” as usual.
