exporting to ODF or DOC

2009-04-19 Thread Marco Beishuizen
Hi,

Is there any way of exporting a LyX document to OpenDocument or Word? In
LyX you can add the export to your menu but that only seems to change
the file extension, and not converting anything. I also saw that there
is a script tex4ht. But how do I install this?

I'm running LyX on FreeBSD 7.1-Stable.

Thanks in advance.

The first item is in the works, as you can see in the user guide:
  http://www.nongnu.org/elyxer/userguide.html
What I want to achieve is to be able to segment the HTML page in
chapters, parts or sections. Actually I need it for my own documents,
so you can rest assured that the tool will eventually get there. Is
this what you want?

The second point (table of contents) is related. Since eLyXer does the
conversion on the fly, keeping minimal state information on memory, it
is not possible right now to generate a table of contents: at the top
of the document it is not known how many chapters or sections there
will be. So a second pass is necessary. At the moment the planned
extension is to create a second utility which does both things:
segment the page and create a table of contents where needed.

I cannot give dates for these developments, since they depend on the
usual factors: day job, family, etc. But I would like to have them
ready before summer. Until then your best bet is to segment the
documents manually.

Cheers,

Alex.


LyX and XeTeX - how to preview PDF?

2009-04-19 Thread Kosta Welke

Hi!

I'm trying to use LyX together with Xetex and thanks to strangers on the internet, it actually works. I updated the wiki under http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/XeTeX so that it might work for other people, too. 


There's one problem, though: As XeTeX must run through the xelatex, which is a different 
lyx file format, the preview PDF button does not work anymore (exporting using pdflatex 
gives an error, as you need to export using xelatex). What is the best/quickest/working 
way to get the preview/update PDF buttons to export using XeTeX instead of 
pdflatex? (optimally, this would be a document setting).

It's a dirty hack that would work only if you always want to use xetex instead

Yes. Install cocoAspell.

On Leopard, I've had to move the service folder cocoAspell.service
from ~/Library/Services to /Library/Services, but others have
cocoAspell working without doing that. (The move needs to be done at
the command line as root.)

The default installation is only English language dictionaries. If you
need other dictionaries you'll have to download and install them.

You'll need to configure LyX to find the cocoAspell dictionaries:

exporting to ODF or DOC

2009-04-19 Thread Marco Beishuizen
Hi,

Is there any way of exporting a LyX document to OpenDocument or Word? In
LyX you can add the export to your menu but that only seems to change
the file extension, and not converting anything. I also saw that there
is a script tex4ht. But how do I install this?

I'm running LyX on FreeBSD 7.1-Stable.

Thanks in advance.

The first item is in the works, as you can see in the user guide:
  http://www.nongnu.org/elyxer/userguide.html
What I want to achieve is to be able to segment the HTML page in
chapters, parts or sections. Actually I need it for my own documents,
so you can rest assured that the tool will eventually get there. Is
this what you want?

The second point (table of contents) is related. Since eLyXer does the
conversion on the fly, keeping minimal state information on memory, it
is not possible right now to generate a table of contents: at the top
of the document it is not known how many chapters or sections there
will be. So a second pass is necessary. At the moment the planned
extension is to create a second utility which does both things:
segment the page and create a table of contents where needed.

I cannot give dates for these developments, since they depend on the
usual factors: day job, family, etc. But I would like to have them
ready before summer. Until then your best bet is to segment the
documents manually.

Cheers,

Alex.


LyX and XeTeX - how to preview PDF?

2009-04-19 Thread Kosta Welke

Hi!

I'm trying to use LyX together with Xetex and thanks to strangers on the internet, it actually works. I updated the wiki under http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/XeTeX so that it might work for other people, too. 


There's one problem, though: As XeTeX must run through the xelatex, which is a different 
lyx file format, the preview PDF button does not work anymore (exporting using pdflatex 
gives an error, as you need to export using xelatex). What is the best/quickest/working 
way to get the preview/update PDF buttons to export using XeTeX instead of 
pdflatex? (optimally, this would be a document setting).

Thanks in advance for your help!

It's a dirty hack that would work only if you always want to use xetex instead

how to stop TeX and LaTeX from being typeset with the special logo?

2009-04-19 Thread Richard Talley
LyX automagically typesets words like TeX and LaTeX using the special
logo for those words.

How do I turn this behavior off? There are a couple of places, such as
an instruction to navigate to /Applications/TeX, where I want the
words to appear more like they actually do in the computer interface.
(I do *not* want to type /Applications/Tex as that does not match what
is on the screen.)

Yes. Install cocoAspell.

http://cocoaspell.leuski.net/

On Leopard, I've had to move the service folder cocoAspell.service
from ~/Library/Services to /Library/Services, but others have
cocoAspell working without doing that. (The move needs to be done at
the command line as root.)

The default installation is only English language dictionaries. If you
need other dictionaries you'll have to download and install them.

You'll need to configure LyX to find the cocoAspell dictionaries:

One important not: you example used an address in this form:

No, but you should give this new program a try:

When you don't have the list of algorithm, you don't have this bug? If so, assure that the list is 
in the "Standard" environment and check if you perhaps have some of the conflicts with algorithms 
mentioned in the EmbeddedObjects manuals.

Yes, please give eLyXer a try. Version 0.15 has just been published
with a few improvements. If your favorite mirror does not carry it
yet, just go to
  http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases-noredirect/elyxer/

Your document is rendered acceptably, although the date does not come
out centered -- it will be solved for next version. If you need
anything else to make it work for you just let me know.

Thanks,

Alex.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for this. The html file looks very good indeed. However, was
wondering if it would be possible to have separate html files for each page
(as is possible with Plastex). Also, noticed that the table of contents
isn't displayed. Is it in the works?

Thanks,
Parul

exporting to ODF or DOC

2009-04-19 Thread Marco Beishuizen
Hi,

Is there any way of exporting a LyX document to OpenDocument or Word? In
LyX you can add the export to your menu but that only seems to change
the file extension, and not converting anything. I also saw that there
is a script "tex4ht". But how do I install this?

I'm running LyX on FreeBSD 7.1-Stable.

Thanks in advance.

Marco

The first item is in the works, as you can see in the user guide:
  http://www.nongnu.org/elyxer/userguide.html
What I want to achieve is to be able to segment the HTML page in
chapters, parts or sections. Actually I need it for my own documents,
so you can rest assured that the tool will eventually get there. Is
this what you want?

The second point (table of contents) is related. Since eLyXer does the
conversion on the fly, keeping minimal state information on memory, it
is not possible right now to generate a table of contents: at the top
of the document it is not known how many chapters or sections there
will be. So a second pass is necessary. At the moment the planned
extension is to create a second utility which does both things:
segment the page and create a table of contents where needed.

I cannot give dates for these developments, since they depend on the
usual factors: day job, family, etc. But I would like to have them
ready before summer. Until then your best bet is to segment the
documents manually.

Cheers,

Alex.


LyX and XeTeX - how to preview PDF?

2009-04-19 Thread Kosta Welke

Hi!

I'm trying to use LyX together with Xetex and thanks to strangers on the internet, it actually works. I updated the wiki under http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/XeTeX so that it might work for other people, too. 


There's one problem, though: As XeTeX must run through the xelatex, which is a different 
lyx file format, the preview PDF button does not work anymore (exporting using pdflatex 
gives an error, as you need to export using xelatex). What is the best/quickest/working 
way to get the "preview/update PDF" buttons to export using XeTeX instead of 
pdflatex? (optimally, this would be a document setting).

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers,
Kosta

It's a dirty hack that would work only if you always want to use xetex instead
of pdflatex. You can go into preferences->converters->Latex(pdflatex) and
change the converter from pdflatex to xetex

how to stop TeX and LaTeX from being typeset with the special logo?

2009-04-19 Thread Richard Talley
LyX automagically typesets words like TeX and LaTeX using the special
logo for those words.

How do I turn this behavior off? There are a couple of places, such as
an instruction to navigate to /Applications/TeX, where I want the
words to appear more like they actually do in the computer interface.
(I do *not* want to type /Applications/Tex as that does not match what
is on the screen.)

Yes. Install cocoAspell.

http://cocoaspell.leuski.net/

On Leopard, I've had to move the service folder cocoAspell.service
from ~/Library/Services to /Library/Services, but others have
cocoAspell working without doing that. (The move needs to be done at
the command line as root.)

The default installation is only English language dictionaries. If you
need other dictionaries you'll have to download and install them.

You'll need to configure LyX to find the cocoAspell dictionaries:

You can press Ctrl-L to enter ERT mode and type TeX into the ERT
inset. This will send "TeX" straight to LaTeX without LyX doing any
funny processing.

It is especially annoying if you copy and paste such text from the PDF. With
xpdf, you will get

   I love L X
   Y
   but dislike this auto LaT X logo.

I remember the User Guide to use some invisible character inside LaTeX to
prevent this.

If it should apply to the whole document, you can als redefine

renewcommand{\LyX}{LyX}
renewcommand{\TeX}{TeX}
renewcommand{\LaTeX}{LaTeX}

in the LaT X preamble.
