Error running custom processor
pandoc: pandoc: openBinaryFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)


I get this message when I try to convert a md file. I have attached my setting. Could you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Based on some previous discussions I have also tried:

    --from=markdown --to=html --bibliography=/Users/maurizio/Zotero/My Library.bib -s --citeproc

    But still I get the error (attached) and my references are not rendered.
    I also tried to put my bib file path in the YAML header. But again no success...Can anyone help please??

    The second attempt looks more correct than what's in the screenshot. You may need to escape or quote the path to the bib file if it contains spaces:

    --from=markdown --to=html --bibliography=/Users/maurizio/Zotero/My\ Library.bib -s --citeproc

    Note the backslash in My\ Library.

    Let me know if that helps.
