Aliases in YAML not working when using nocite

Use case or problem

When using nocite elements in the YAML block, aliases are not detected:


alias: "yxc"

nocite: |

Here is the Pandoc documentation for the corresponding attribute:

Proposed solution


  1. Recognize the nocite elements as YAML attributes or
  2. Recognize aliases independently of other YAML attributes

Current workaround (optional)

There is no problem with nocite. I believe your YAML is not properly formatted.

Thank you for your fast reply. Did you test the YAML I posted?

I did, it’s not correctly formatted because you used a tab instead of spaces.
