I just repeat it once more. All experiments step by step:
- My tm file uses ref.bib file. I print \cite, then right-click and select
search in databaseand see all references in file ref.bib
- I open ref,bib file with xed, and add a new reference in bib format and save it.
- I print \cite, then right-click and select
search in databaseand see that a new reference does not appear.
- Then I make Document - Update - All 3 times
- I repeat item 3) and note a new reference does not appear.
- Then Data - Open bibliography and I see the content of ref.bib file without a new reference.
- Again Data - Import and select ref.bib.
- Vu a la - a new reference appears!
In my case, I have to make steps 6-7 after adding each new reference in bib file. I expected that new reference will appear automatically.
I use Linux Mint Mate 20 (based on the Ubuntu 20). Version on Texmacs 1.99.19.
- Data - Open bibliography. I see content of the ref.bib file.
- Copy reference in the bib format and then insert as Bibtex and save.
- The reference appears in data base and I can see it in \cite right-click search in database.
This way is shorter because I do not need to open ref.bib by an external editor.
Let us close this thread. My wishes I will put in Savannah as suggestions.
