I am using the R Markdown visual editor functionality in the preview release of R Studio Version 1.4.869 on Windows 10. For the past week or two I've been working on a manuscript and the new citation features have been working great, even if they're a little slow during the search sometimes. I've been able to add citations from DOI, PubMed and insert them directly with markdown syntax.
Today however, I went to work on this manuscript and was trying to add a citation to an article I've previously cited and it appears R Studio has somehow lost the connection to my .bib file that I had been filling up. The .bib file is in the same folder as my .Rmd file and still has all my citations but when I click "Insert -> Citation" there are no entries and when I try to add it with markdown syntax
[@cite] I don't get any autofill options.
I tried adding a new citation just now and I was able to look one up and add it. It shows up in my references.bib file. But when I go back into the Insert -> Citation window or try to add with
[@author] there are no new options.
Any suggestions on how to fix this? Please let me know if I should provide other information.
