Dear Alan, 

Thanks again for all your help.

Deleting the definebtxrendering[ref] part makes my citations disappear. I get something like:

<bb:2017> says in their paper…

Also, the setupbtx[apa:list]… doesn’t solve my etallimit problem.

Could you test my code and tweak it for me? Can’t find examples of what I want to achieve in the mailing list archives although it seems it should be fairly straightforward. I want something like:

Bronstein et al. says in their paper…

I found the etaldisplay affects the display of the references and I don’t want that.
