BibTEX use problems-- per phone conversation with George

jsmeyer's picture

I am attempting to learn SWP 6.05. I run into problems when I try to include a BiBTEX bibliography and citations.

When I Select Insert /Typset object/ Bibliography the two pans cannot both be used. The second choice appears to deselect the choice in the adjoining pane. There is considerable redundancy in choosing the BibTEX files, too. When I set its path in the Preferences, that path is not remembered. I am asked to select it everytime I insert a citation. When I then convert to pdf, the bibliography does not show, and the citations are the famous [?] symbols.
Attached find my playthings.
Thanks for the help.
