Re: Cannot generate pdf when there is an underscore in the Note field of a reference in the bibliography

2016-03-10 Thread Joel Kulesza
Ken,

Can you attach a minimum working/failing example (MWE) to play with which
has just enough to show the behavior?

In the meantime, have you tried escaping the underscore (e.g., \_)?  Very
likely it is being interpreted as a math-mode subscript.

Hope this helps.

Joel

Cannot generate pdf when there is an underscore in the Note field of a reference in the bibliography

2016-03-10 Thread Ken Allen
Thanks to anyone bothering to read this.

When generating a pdf, the process aborts with a latex error message:

Missing $ inserted.

I've inserted a begin-math/end-math symbol since I think
you left one out. Proceed, with fingers crossed.

This only occurs if there is an underscore in the note field of a reference
in the bibtex database. I have looked for hidden special characters in the
.bib file using the terminal command cat -TEA and found none. The underscore
has to be in the note field of the reference entry. Seems really odd.

I posted this to the bug list but was told to post it here.

I'm using:

Ubuntu 14.4 with the texlive in the Ubuntu ppa
Lyx 2.1.4
Natbib, style author-year
processor bibtex8
style apalike

I need to be able to produce a pdf of my document.

Thanks.
