I am currently writing my Master thesis and wanted to enter another reference after already having 84.
When I enter a new reference now, the following happens: half of my references disappear, and I am down to 41. How come? How can I solve the problem? I am quite desperate because it was very tedious to enter the references I have so far. So help would be much appreciated!!!
Anyone openning the document in another processor like OpenOffice? – that will destroy the inserted fields. You do have a backup, right? Saving to a new name each day? If so you can convert to unformated citations in both copies and do a compare and accept and reject the appropriate option to get them back.
if not, – then come back for more advice. Including what out put style are you using? numbered, by appearance, alphabetical, or author, year?
