Nested enumerate in columns

2004-10-24 Thread Paul Smith
Dear All

Some time ago, Herbert provided here an example for me to achieve the
following enumerate environment in columns:

(a) First item;  (c) Third item;
(c) Second item; (d) Fourth item.

Now, I am trying to obtain a nested enumerate environment in columns
as shown bellow:

1. A line of text.
  (a) First item;  (c) Third item;
  (c) Second item; (d) Fourth item.
2. Another line of text.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Hello
See file attached, you'll need multicols package
I got some trouble with this before
I always put the \begin {multicols}{2} on an empty standart line wich 
is at the same level as the enumerate which is to be in multicols. 
(clear no ;))
Hope that helps

Hi,

while writing my master thesis, i started to use cvs to track changes in the 
text, pictures, measuremet results ... . Inside of my thesis i want to use 
the cvs version or revision tags (on the titlepage, or in the page 
headings/footer).
Is/how it possibe to query cvs automaticly before printing the thesis, which 
number/tag is actual used in cvs, and insert this result into the text before 
printing starts?

problems with lyx via fink

2004-10-24 Thread Emiliano Ricci
Hi there, I've been working for some months now with lyx, in my office,
on a gentoo-gnome environment, and it's just so fun to work on it, that
I decided to make also my school works on it.
My problem is, that during the weekends I only have acces to an iBook
with MacOsX version 10.3.5, and I tried to install lyx with fink, It was
all ok, I even got lyx up and running, but when tried to open a
document, it displays the folowing errors.

Textclass error
The document uses an unknown textclass article --substituting default.

and

Textclass error
The document uses a missing TeX class article LyX will not be able to
produce output.

I installed all the Tex, tetex, and latex, possible dependencies, I also
uninstalled lyx and tried the qt version, and it still shows that error.

Also, when I go to the layout/Document_Settings screen, on Document
Class it sais Unavailable:article. And on view, there isn't displayed
the usual DVI, HTML, PDF, etc. options.

On the X11-term, even if I try to open a book format document, I get a
list of:
Layout 'Chapter' does not exist in textclass 'article'.
Trying to use default layout instead.

I haven't seen on the lists this problem yet, and I tried to search on
the manuals but right now havo no clues. Can anyone point me to the

Error message truncation

2004-10-24 Thread Bruce E Weller
First time submission so apologies if this does not work as I imagine. 

I have searched the mailing list under aspell/English, dictionary
fedora (and some variations) and error message truncation without
locating a reference to my my problem. I suspect that my personal filing
process is aberrant which often leads to poor outcomes to my queries. 

I am running Fedora Core #1 and not sure how to determine which version
of KDE (likely pretty much what came with the distribution). 

Lyx 1.3.5 compiled and is up and running however I cannot get the
Spellchecker to work. It tries, but gives the following message (which
looks to be truncated). 

The file '/usr/local/lib/aspell-0.60/english can not be opened for
re'. 

Looks like the message box does not wrap the text around to see the last
part of the message. 

Any clarification of the message (or other relevant guidance ---a
pointer to other user communications about the same problem, perhaps?)
would be much appreciated. 

(I did have ispell working (previous Lyx version, running on RH7.1 as I
recall) but lost it when upgrading to present version of Linux. I
therefore loaded it up again after the new version of Lyx could not find
any aspell/English file. If relevant, the Thesaurus does function.)

My sister is writing her Phd using Word on a Mac but is having some
difficulties that I think LyX would solve.  Unfortunately she has an early
version of OS X and doesn't want to upgrade until her Phd is finished.

Do you know of a good Live CD dist. for Mac, with LyX included? and do you
have any tips for importing her work to LyX?

BTW. I'm using LyX to write a maths paper and a book -- v. cool.

Use multicol package at the beginning of the first nested item, then
the end of the last nested item.

1. A line of text.
  (a) \begin{multicols}{2}First item

  (c) 3rd item

Hmm.  Is this to be used on regular enumerations when one has > 1
column per page?  I put this into some of my exams at various points in
these nested, multi-columned environments (M/C answers on the exams),
and saw no change in anything.

Caveat: I'm no LaTeX guru, but at the other end of the spectrum.  I
don't even know what it _should_ do.

problems with lyx via fink

2004-10-24 Thread Emiliano Ricci
Hi there, I've been working for some months now with lyx, in my office,
on a gentoo-gnome environment, and it's just so fun to work on it, that
I decided to make also my school works on it.
My problem is, that during the weekends I only have acces to an iBook
with MacOsX version 10.3.5, and I tried to install lyx with fink, It was
all ok, I even got lyx up and running, but when tried to open a
document, it displays the folowing errors.

Textclass error
The document uses an unknown textclass article --substituting default.

and

Textclass error
The document uses a missing TeX class article LyX will not be able to
produce output.

I installed all the Tex, tetex, and latex, possible dependencies, I also
uninstalled lyx and tried the qt version, and it still shows that error.

Also, when I go to the layout/Document_Settings screen, on Document
Class it sais Unavailable:article. And on view, there isn't displayed
the usual DVI, HTML, PDF, etc. options.

On the X11-term, even if I try to open a book format document, I get a
list of:
Layout 'Chapter' does not exist in textclass 'article'.
Trying to use default layout instead.

I haven't seen on the lists this problem yet, and I tried to search on
the manuals but right now havo no clues. Can anyone point me to the
right documentation?

I thank your help
best regards

Error message truncation

2004-10-24 Thread Bruce E Weller
First time submission so apologies if this does not work as I imagine. 

I have searched the mailing list under "aspell/English", "dictionary
fedora" (and some variations) and "error message truncation" without
locating a reference to my my problem. I suspect that my personal filing
process is aberrant which often leads to poor outcomes to my queries. 

I am running Fedora Core #1 and not sure how to determine which version
of KDE (likely pretty much what came with the distribution). 

Lyx 1.3.5 compiled and is up and running however I cannot get the
Spellchecker to work. It tries, but gives the following message (which
looks to be truncated). 

"The file '/usr/local/lib/aspell-0.60/english can not be opened for
re'." 

Looks like the message box does not wrap the text around to see the last
part of the message. 

Any clarification of the message (or other relevant guidance ---a
pointer to other user communications about the same problem, perhaps?)
would be much appreciated. 

(I did have ispell working (previous Lyx version, running on RH7.1 as I
recall) but lost it when upgrading to present version of Linux. I
therefore loaded it up again after the new version of Lyx could not find
any aspell/English file. If relevant, the Thesaurus does function.)

Fwd: LyX on Live CD for Mac?

2004-10-24 Thread Nicholas

My sister is writing her Phd using Word on a Mac but is having some
difficulties that I think LyX would solve.  Unfortunately she has an early
version of OS X and doesn't want to upgrade until her Phd is finished.

Do you know of a good Live CD dist. for Mac, with LyX included? and do you
have any tips for importing her work to LyX?

BTW. I'm using LyX to write a maths paper and a book -- v. cool.
