Bug Description

When trying to open my bibtex file, it just don't show! The extension is .bib and it opens OK in pybligrapher, jabref and other programs as well...

Can you either attach your bibtex file, or at the very least, the bibtex record that causes the parser to fail?

Sorry for not having answered. Heres the bibtex-file.

I just noted something. I'm adding another file that's opening just fine. The difference between the two is that the first one (uppsatsen2.bib) contains scandinavian letters such as "åäö". The other one don't. Maybe it has something to do with that?

Yes, this is a known bug. Currently bibliographer does not support accented letters, however, this will be addressed soon.

Upon further investigation, the reason for the parser failing is that it does not support the @comment directive in bibtex.
