Inserting citations in a bookdown chapter adds a bib path to the chapter YAML

Hi everyone,

I'm working on creating a custom bookdown format and I'm running into a particular issue I don't quite understand.

If you create a default bookdown project, you can add citations with the visual editor and it will recognize that the citations should be added to the .bib specified in the YAML of index.Rmd. I seem to have lost that particular functionality because when I add a citation in a chapter using the visual editor, it won't find the .bib that I specified in index.Rmd and instead adds a new .bib file and path to the current chapter.

Does anyone know how I can solve this issue? I suppose I'm looking for a way to make sure that the visual editor knows where to find the .bib in the project.
