I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I use the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I work in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic/Persian
  • Greek
  • Syriac

@moewe : I don't quite get what Maïeul wrote under Customization. In addition to that, the style prints the term "volume" before the volume number of an article, while in all the usual articles that term is not printed (an in Maïeul's example in the documentation it is not printed either).

@moewe : Yes, I did a biref check yesterday and it seemed fine. will look further into it later today (and will have to edit a whole bunch of entries in my bib-file...). One question I do have: why is something like this not simply implemented into biblatex? It is so comprehensive, why not just adding these two bib-types?

@cfr : I need the information about, for example, the translator to appear immediately after the title of the treatise (because the translator is a translator of the treatise and not of the book in which the treatise was published). If I then use the "dedicated fields", BibLaTeX sorts the information to the book, and not to the treatise. In short: I nedd it to be like this: Author. *Title*. Translated by John Doe. In: *Booktitle*. Edited by Albert Einstein. Press. Year. and not: Author. *Title*. In: *Booktitle*. Edited by Albert Einstein. Translated by John Doe. Press. Year.

@Kurt : I always fear a request for an MWE, because of the complexity of my document, but this time -- to my surprise -- it was easy.

Yes, that's what I mean. I am using TexShop. It never occurred to me that this might be a feature of the editor. In any case, I don't see anything similar in TexShop. Any other editors which have that feature on mac?

comment Arabic in LuaLaTeX: Why do I get the vowels typeset RTL in LTR mode?
@RobertAlessi : Would you mind registering at github and mention your case in my issue report there as well? It should be known there that I am not the only one with these issues. More and more people use LuaLaTeX for Arabic and other RTL languages -- they all may have the same problem.
