Reference managers and Latex workflow for Scrivener 3

With the amazing progressed made in Scrivener 3, I was thinking to use it for writing my academic stuff. The problem is, it is very hard to replicate the Autocomplete citation features in the Latex editors like Texstudio inside Scrivener.

The Citation feature in Papers 3 was the closest thing I find to the Autocomplete feature of Texstudio. The Citation feature in Papers 3 is no more working with Scrivener 3, unfortunately.

ZotQuery of Zotero-alfred workflow still works. I personally am not much into Zotero.
I use Bookends. Some guys have made similar script to call for Bookends and insert references. https://github.com/iandol/bookends-tools
This is nice.

The problem with the BEQuery is that BE needs to be running (unlike the Citation feature of Papers) to insert citation keys.

Do you guys have another (probably better) workflow to insert references and export to latex?
What kind of workflow are you using for inserting citations in Scrivener 3?

I’m sorry you did not have any reply. I’m not on the Mac, and I cannot help with bookends. If you use Zotero, you could take advantage of citations keys, with the following addon:

This recent link may be of some help in suggesting how it can be used.

I’m not familiar with these tools, so I’m wondering what the desired output here is. Does this convert a raw citation into a formatted citation? Or is it that you want to see the bibliographic info for the given raw citation code? Or is the problem that you don’t want to have your citation manager running simultaneously?

Is it not possible to just manually copy and paste a raw reference code such as the cited example of {Koffka, 1922, #6475} directly into Scrivener and then get whatever add-on (e.g. EndNote’s MS Word add-on) that recognises that in whatever destination software (e.g. MS Word) to convert them into real citations at the end? That solution does require that e.g. the EndNote window is open, for you to be able to copy and paste the raw citation code.

You could use Scrivener for the early drafts, writing in MultiMarkdown mode, and export to LaTeX when you need to start working on citations.
