LyX can't find bibliography entries after certain entry

I've been looking for hours, and can't find an answer, so here goes:

LyX can't find bibliography entries after certain entry

LyX doesn't find several of the citations in my .bib file. It displays '??' for all missing info in the citation fields, and says "Bibliography entry not found!" in the citation window.

  • The pdf output is perfect, so the bib-file works.
  • A new file, using the same bib-file, works as it should (both in lyx and the output)
  • I have made a MWE (code below). It only contains the citations and bibliography. I removed all links to child and master documents (it was a thesis chapter), and the entire preamble.
    • In the MWE, changing citation styles and engines doesn't do anything.

It seems like this is a LyX bug. Anyone have any idea how to solve it? I've seen people mention deleting the auxiliary files; would that help? And how would I do that?

Typing this, I realised I hadn't tried copy-pasting the content into another file. This fixes the problem! So at least I have a work-around now. But doing that every time this bug appears is still wildly tedious, as I need to replace all the document settings, so I hope someone here has a better solution!
