Dear lyx users,

I recently upgraded to lyx version 2.1.2.2 and attempted to compile a lyx file I made with an older version. The pdf file is fine except that the first page is missing. This is where the abstract, title, authors etc. are located. I do a little TeX as well and could not find anything wrong with the source code. As it worked on an older version of lyx I am assuming that something in the update is the issue. I am running OS X Yosemite.

Try exporting the TeX file and compiling manually. Does the problem persist?

Hi Richard,

I exported it as a LaTeX file and compiled it in TeX Shop 3.18. The pdf again was missing the first page.

Hi, Drew,


I copied the header code:

%% Do not edit unless you really know what you are doing.
\documentclass[10pt,a4paper,american]{elsarticle}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{cmtt}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{amstext}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\makeatletter

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% LyX specific LaTeX commands.
\special{papersize=\the\paperwidth,\the\paperheight}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% User specified LaTeX commands.
%\usepackage{cite}

\@ifundefined{showcaptionsetup}{}{%
\PassOptionsToPackage{caption=false}{subfig}}
\usepackage{subfig}
\AtBeginDocument{
\def\labelitemi{$$\triangleright$$}
}

\makeatother

\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}

Maybe it is something with the document class and the new lyx version?



My first suggestion would be to create a simple elsarticle test file, outside of LyX, compile it manually, and see if that works. If not, then the problem is with your LaTeX installation and not with LyX. I believe I saw a similar sort of problem once when upgrading my OS, though
that was on Linux.


On an unrelated matter I tried opening up some older lyx files as well and none of them work. All have problems with .eps to .pdf conversion. This might be another problem but I though I should let you know.


someone else has relevant input.
