Re: Harvard style referencing

2008-02-11 Thread Jennifer Brookes
It don't think that was it, and thanks to Brian too for his help and I 
am sorry for still not getting it! I think the problem is I don't 
actually have the agsm style, as I got this error in the .bgl file


I couldn't open style file agsm.bst
---line 148 of file FlexDraft14.aux
: \bibstyle{agsm
:   }


So I tried the style plainnat (with natbib) and also harvard (the .bst I 
got of the web) and both seemed to work ok, i.e. I get the references 
alphabetical, but in the text references are still refered to 
numerically instead of (author, year) which is the citation style I 
selected. Please can anyone help?


thanks

Hi,

I am having difficulty figuring out how to convert my references to 
alphabetical (Harvard style) in preparation of an article. I have 
been using lyx version 1.4.4, with document class article (REVTeX4), 
citation style natbib (Author-year) and bibliography style agsm. When 
I compile however, no references appear and there are question marks 
where I would like the references to be. Before I was using natbib 
(numerical) and bibliography style apsrev, which worked fine, can 
anyone tell me the problem?


Many thanks

Jürgen,

  I don't know if I need bleeding edge features. Here's what I want to do:

  1.) Insert my company letterhead (a .pdf file) as the logo across the top
of the first page. Ignore the fromname, fromaddress, etc. because that's
included in the letterhead.

  2.) On continuation pages, have the left-aligned header consist of

toname

page number

  Other than this, it should be simple. I don't know what to do right now
when I specify the Logo environment at the beginning of the document, what
needs to be placed in the preamble, nor the sequence in which letter
components should be entered. I know it's different from a few years ago.

  I'll look in the LyX docs and examples to see what I can learn. It's time

rather than OO.o's Writer.

Thanks,

Incorrect Headers

Dear Lyx people,

I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am writing a thesis in Lyx 
version 1.5.2 in windows. Most of it is working brilliantly but I am having 
some trouble with the headers at the beginning of the document. In my 
abstract section the headers on the second and subsequent pages say list 
of figures instead of abstract. i would like to be able to change them 
to say abstract or to leave them blank but I cant seem to do it. I can 
remove the header but only if I also remove the horizontal line under the 
header and the page number at the bottom of the page both of which I would 
like to keep. If I try to remove the header and the horizontal line but 
keep the page number I get an error in compiling but it does compile 
eventually.


Any help would be much apprieciated!

Re: Reference Order and figure position problems

2008-02-11 Thread Christopher Reeve
Your second problem is a common feature of LaTeX when you have lots  
of pictures and not many words. Basically it found there was not a  
neat way of displaying the pictures amongst the text without either  
having a title in an odd looking place or a mostly empty page in the  
middle of a chapter.


I suggest you try a couple of things. If you really want the pictures  
to be with the text try changing ALL of the pictures to be placed  
Here if possible. I Don't recommend using Here definitely unless  
it is a last option and note you might get some empty looking pages  
appear at the slightest modification of any text.


Otherwise give into LaTeX and admit it is right. Insert a clear page  
at a convenient place. This will prevent it being used by text so  
some of your pictures will collect on it.. ie they'll catch up with  
your text.


Note you can always refer to the page number the figures are on  
automatically (on the reference pop-up box select the option  
reference on page page)

Dear Paul,

Thanks!  As it turns out, when I copied the file from my removable
SanDisk to follow your advice, then LyX read it perfectly, no lyx2lyx
failure.

I have other LyX files on the removable disk (created with 1.5.3 on
Ubuntu) which open with no problems.  I don't quite follow the details
of what is happening, but if I copy the files from the removable disk
to the Linux desktop then the problems disappear.

In any case, I have now regained over 2 years worth of work.  Thanks again!

Best,
Jay



Guessing blind here, but maybe an encoding problem?  You might try
running iconv against one of them, converting to utf8 (with a new file
name so as not to overwrite the original), then see if LyX can open the
converted copy.

Otherwise, maybe you could post a small example that doesn't open in 1.5.3.

I'm not sure what OS and LaTeX distro you are using, so I'll try to be 
as generic as possible.  First, open a shell/command window and run 
'kpsewhich agsm.bst'.  If it displays a path, then you have style and 
something else is wrong, but I'm pretty sure you'll get a null response. 
 In that case, you need to install the harvard-latex package.  With 
MiKTeX, use the package manager to install the package named 'harvard'. 
 The package manager will automatically update the file database.  With 
TeXLive, install the texlive-bibtex-extra package (using your Linux 
distro's package manager, such as Synaptic).  I'm pretty sure the 
installation script will automatically update the file name database. 
All else failing, you can download the harvard-latex package from CTAN 
(http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/harvard/), install 
it yourself, then manually update the file database (by running 
texhash).  Run 'kpsewhich agsm.bst' again just to be sure things went

Creating Logotype Letterhead

2008-02-11 Thread Rich Shepard

  It turns out that the logotype letterhead I use with OO.o Writer is not
usable within LyX. The pdf is not accepted by LyX (I apparently lost ps4pdf
during an upgrade somewhere), and I cannot translate the file to .eps
because OO.o's pdf generator is not Adobe compliant.

  Years ago I started the long, painful process of adding an additional
Type1 typeface to LaTeX. Gave up when the process took too much time,
effort, and re-reading of multiple docs.

  The typeface is Baker Signet. I've used it for the company for about 15
years now, and I'd like to use it in LyX documents. The company name is
written in small caps, the rest in upper and lower case.

  Has it become any easier to install a new typeface in several fonts? If
not, what are my options for preparing it as an EPS file for inclusion in a
document? That typeface is not available within the GIMP, and that's more of
a raster-based drawing tool than it is a vector-based tool. Xfig also does
not have Baker Signet available.

Koma-Script Letters 2 in LyX-1.5.3?

2008-02-11 Thread Rich Shepard

  Does LyX-1.5.3 support the December 2007 features of Koma-Script 2? I'm
specifically interested in the New! Improved! Whiter! letter class.

Thanks,

Uwe, et al.:

  Using the template as a guide (D'oh! What else does one do with a
template, eh?), I've started a letter. See the attached PDF. My specific
questions are:

  1.) How do I insert the letterhead at the top of the page (presumably
using the logo environment)?

  2.) How do I align the inside address with the rest of the letter's
content? It's too far to the left (or everything else is too far to the
right.)

  3.) Can I have the date printed before the inside address?

  4.) What ERT will move the closing and my title to the left margin?

  Once I learn these, I'll probably have questions on implementing the
header on continuation pages.

Thanks for the pointer to the template file,

Incorrect Headers

2008-02-11 Thread jean . wyer

Dear Lyx people,

I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am writing a thesis in Lyx 
version 1.5.2 in windows. Most of it is working brilliantly but I am having 
some trouble with the headers at the beginning of the document. In my 
abstract section the headers on the second and subsequent pages say list 
of figures instead of abstract. i would like to be able to change them 
to say abstract or to leave them blank but I cant seem to do it. I can 
remove the header but only if I also remove the horizontal line under the 
header and the page number at the bottom of the page both of which I would 
like to keep. If I try to remove the header and the horizontal line but 
keep the page number I get an error in compiling but it does compile 
eventually.


Any help would be much apprieciated!

Re: Reference Order and figure position problems

2008-02-11 Thread Christopher Reeve
Your second problem is a common feature of LaTeX when you have lots  
of pictures and not many words. Basically it found there was not a  
neat way of displaying the pictures amongst the text without either  
having a title in an odd looking place or a mostly empty page in the  
middle of a chapter.


I suggest you try a couple of things. If you really want the pictures  
to be with the text try changing ALL of the pictures to be placed  
Here if possible. I Don't recommend using Here definitely unless  
it is a last option and note you might get some empty looking pages  
appear at the slightest modification of any text.


Otherwise give into LaTeX and admit it is right. Insert a clear page  
at a convenient place. This will prevent it being used by text so  
some of your pictures will collect on it.. ie they'll catch up with  
your text.


Note you can always refer to the page number the figures are on  
automatically (on the reference pop-up box select the option  
reference on page page)

Re: lyx2lyx failure

Dear Paul,

Thanks!  As it turns out, when I copied the file from my removable
SanDisk to follow your advice, then LyX read it perfectly, no lyx2lyx
failure.

I have other LyX files on the removable disk (created with 1.5.3 on
Ubuntu) which open with no problems.  I don't quite follow the details
of what is happening, but if I copy the files from the removable disk
to the Linux desktop then the problems disappear.

In any case, I have now regained over 2 years worth of work.  Thanks again!

Best,
Jay



Guessing blind here, but maybe an encoding problem?  You might try
running iconv against one of them, converting to utf8 (with a new file
name so as not to overwrite the original), then see if LyX can open the
converted copy.

Otherwise, maybe you could post a small example that doesn't open in 1.5.3.

I'm not sure what OS and LaTeX distro you are using, so I'll try to be

'kpsewhich agsm.bst'.  If it displays a path, then you have style and 
something else is wrong, but I'm pretty sure you'll get a null response. 
 In that case, you need to install the harvard-latex package.  With 
MiKTeX, use the package manager to install the package named 'harvard'. 
 The package manager will automatically update the file database.  With 
TeXLive, install the texlive-bibtex-extra package (using your Linux 
distro's package manager, such as Synaptic).  I'm pretty sure the 
installation script will automatically update the file name database. 
All else failing, you can download the harvard-latex package from CTAN 
(http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/harvard/), install 
it yourself, then manually update the file database (by running

Creating Logotype Letterhead

2008-02-11 Thread Rich Shepard

  It turns out that the logotype letterhead I use with OO.o Writer is not
usable within LyX. The pdf is not accepted by LyX (I apparently lost ps4pdf
during an upgrade somewhere), and I cannot translate the file to .eps
because OO.o's pdf generator is not Adobe compliant.

  Years ago I started the long, painful process of adding an additional
Type1 typeface to LaTeX. Gave up when the process took too much time,
effort, and re-reading of multiple docs.

  The typeface is Baker Signet. I've used it for the company for about 15
years now, and I'd like to use it in LyX documents. The company name is
written in small caps, the rest in upper and lower case.

  Has it become any easier to install a new typeface in several fonts? If
not, what are my options for preparing it as an EPS file for inclusion in a
document? That typeface is not available within the GIMP, and that's more of
a raster-based drawing tool than it is a vector-based tool. Xfig also does
not have Baker Signet available.

components should be entered. I know it's different from a few years ago.

  I'll look in the LyX docs and examples to see what I can learn. It's time

appear at the slightest modification of any text.


Otherwise give into LaTeX and admit it is right. Insert a clear page  
at a convenient place. This will prevent it being used by text so  
some of your pictures will collect on it.. ie they'll catch up with  
your text.


Note you can always refer to the page number the figures are on  
automatically (on the reference pop-up box select the option  
" on page ")

  Thank you, Uwe. I'll grab that.

In LyX 1.5.4 we also support the serial letter capabilities of the 
koma-script letter class. You'll find them in the examples folder of LyX.


  I've no need for this within the foreseeable future.

  I've read Chapter 3 in the latest Koma-Script doc, and see how to specify
most things in straight LaTeX. Doing them in LyX is the learning curve I
want to climb now.

Re: lyx2lyx failure

2008-02-11 Thread G. Jay Kerns
Dear Paul,

Thanks!  As it turns out, when I copied the file from my removable
SanDisk to follow your advice, then LyX read it perfectly, no lyx2lyx
failure.

I have other LyX files on the removable disk (created with 1.5.3 on
Ubuntu) which open with no problems.  I don't quite follow the details
of what is happening, but if I copy the files from the removable disk
to the Linux desktop then the problems disappear.

In any case, I have now regained over 2 years worth of work.  Thanks again!

Best,
Jay



Guessing blind here, but maybe an encoding problem?  You might try
running iconv against one of them, converting to utf8 (with a new file
name so as not to overwrite the original), then see if LyX can open the
converted copy.

Otherwise, maybe you could post a small example that doesn't open in 1.5.3.

Dear LyX users,

I am in the process of graduating from Windows to Linux.  I installed
LyX 1.5.3 on an Ubuntu Gutsy using the Synaptic Package Manager.

Now it seems that I cannot open any of my old LyX files (<= 1.5.2).
It says that "(Myfile) came from an earlier version of LyX, but
lyx2lyx failed to convert the file."   I found an earlier post from
December that suggested changing

english.  I checked the top of my file and it says

#LyX 1.4.3-5 created this file. For more info see http://www.lyx.org/

\lyxformat 245

Can anyone please help me?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

In the preamble of the template, uncomment the line "fromlogo=true", then 
insert a paragraph style "logo" after sender name and insert an image via 
Insert->Graphics (as usual).

The positioning of the logo depends on the value of fromalign (see scrguien, 
sec. 6.2.6.

Preamble

but I wouldn't change this, since it should fit the address window of the 
envelope.

>  (or everything else is too far to the right.)

just adjust the left margin (in document->settings->margins). However, I 
wouldn't do that either. Else your customers are going to punch into the 
text.

>    3.) Can I have the date printed before the inside address?

To move the date up/down, play with these values in preamble:

\makeatletter
% vertical position of ref line (date)
[EMAIL PROTECTED]
% space between ref line and letter text
[EMAIL PROTECTED]
\makeatother

>    4.) What ERT will move the closing and my title to the left margin?

Unable to launch Lyx 1.5.3 on Vista

2008-02-11 Thread Laurent Duperval
Hi,

For some reason, launching Lyx 1.5.3 on Vista fails, completely and utterly. I
get a message window saying the program requested the Runtime to terminate it
for an unknown reason.

It was working fine last week. Heck, it was working fine yesterday. The only
difference between yesterday and today is that I installed AVG Anti-virus on my
machine.

Is that the cause? Has anyone ever seen this?

I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am writing a thesis in

having some trouble with the headers at the beginning of the document. 
In my "abstract" section the headers on the second and subsequent pages

change them to say "abstract" or to leave them blank but I cant seem to 
do it. I can remove the header but only if I also remove the horizontal 
line under the header and the page number at the bottom of the page both 
of which I would like to keep. If I try to remove the header and the 
horizontal line but keep the page number I get an error in compiling but 
it does compile eventually.


Any help would be much apprieciated!

I think we would need to know what document class you are using, whether 
you are using the fancyheader package, etc.  The best bet might be to 
post a minimal example (enough to demonstrate the problem but not the 
whole thesis).  Feel free to convert any sensitive material to 'blah 
blah blah' or your favorite (preferably ribald) limerick.

Re: Harvard style referencing

It don't think that was it, and thanks to Brian too for his help and I

I couldn't open style file agsm.bst
---line 148 of file FlexDraft14.aux

So I tried the style plainnat (with natbib) and also harvard (the .bst I 
got of the web) and both seemed to work ok, i.e. I get the references 
alphabetical, but in the text references are still refered to 
numerically instead of (author, year) which is the citation style I 
selected. Please can anyone help?




I'm not sure what OS and LaTeX distro you are using, so I'll try to be 
as generic as possible.  First, open a shell/command window and run 
'kpsewhich agsm.bst'.  If it displays a path, then you have style and 
something else is wrong, but I'm pretty sure you'll get a null response. 
 In that case, you need to install the harvard-latex package.  With 
MiKTeX, use the package manager to install the package named 'harvard'. 
 The package manager will automatically update the file database.  With 
TeXLive, install the texlive-bibtex-extra package (using your Linux 
distro's package manager, such as Synaptic).  I'm pretty sure the 
installation script will automatically update the file name database. 
All else failing, you can download the harvard-latex package from CTAN 
(http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/harvard/), install 
it yourself, then manually update the file database (by running 
texhash).  Run 'kpsewhich agsm.bst' again just to be sure things went 
well, then retry compiling your document.

Uwe, et al.:

  Using the template as a guide (D'oh! What else does one do with a
template, eh?), I've started a letter. See the attached PDF. My specific
questions are:

  1.) How do I insert the letterhead at the top of the page (presumably
using the logo environment)?

  2.) How do I align the inside address with the rest of the letter's
content? It's too far to the left (or everything else is too far to the
right.)

  3.) Can I have the date printed before the inside address?

  4.) What ERT will move the closing and my title to the left margin?

  Once I learn these, I'll probably have questions on implementing the
header on continuation pages.

Thanks for the pointer to the template file,

Rich

Description: Adobe PDF document


Creating Logotype Letterhead

2008-02-11 Thread Rich Shepard

  It turns out that the logotype letterhead I use with OO.o Writer is not
usable within LyX. The pdf is not accepted by LyX (I apparently lost ps4pdf
during an upgrade somewhere), and I cannot translate the file to .eps
because OO.o's pdf generator is not Adobe compliant.

  Years ago I started the long, painful process of adding an additional
Type1 typeface to LaTeX. Gave up when the process took too much time,
effort, and re-reading of multiple docs.

  The typeface is Baker Signet. I've used it for the company for about 15
years now, and I'd like to use it in LyX documents. The company name is
written in small caps, the rest in upper and lower case.

  Has it become any easier to install a new typeface in several fonts? If
not, what are my options for preparing it as an EPS file for inclusion in a
document? That typeface is not available within the GIMP, and that's more of
a raster-based drawing tool than it is a vector-based tool. Xfig also does
not have Baker Signet available.
