You should enter \unitone or \unittwo...

To get "1 mm", enter "\unittwo" and insert "1" in the first box and "mm"

changed indentation for quotations

2009-05-29 Thread Markus Büchele
Hi,

is there a way to change indentation for quotes and quotations in the preamble 
of a document? I'd need left indentation 0.7cm, right indentation 0cm.

All I found was changes inside the document, such as:

\par
\begingroup

Not a very encouraging option when you need to change about 1,000 quotations.

Exactly what to do depends upon your document class, but the short 
version is that you can just \renewenvironment the quote environment by 
copying it out of the class and changing it as you see fit. It's just a 
list environment. E.g., here are the ones from book.cls:


\newenvironment{quotation}
{\list{}{\listparindent 1.5em%
\itemindent \listparindent
\rightmargin \leftmargin
\parsep \z@ \...@plus\p@}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}
\newenvironment{quote}
{\list{}{\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}

You could try putting "\setlength\leftmargin{2cm}" in there, and adjust 
as need be, e.g.:

\renewenvironment{quote}
{\list{}{\setlength\leftmargin{2cm}\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}
Something like that should work.

Installyng BibLatex in Mac

2009-05-29 Thread monicreque

Hi all:

About the Biblatex package:

I'm trying to install it into my computer —macosx 10.4.11—, but It doesn't
works. I want to manage Bibliographys for Phd works in phylosophy, and I
need to cite the whole reference in the footnotes and use ibid when a
reference repeats. Something like this:

http://n2.nabble.com/file/n2995961/inlinebib1.gif 

I've found two options:


A. Inline style

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/biblio/bibtex/contrib/inlinebib/inlinebib.htm
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/biblio/bibtex/contrib/inlinebib/inlinebib.htm


it's supose that the unse is simply, but i can't do it works.

B. Biblatex Package

This is what I want to use. The manual in lyx is here:

http://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex http://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex


with the packet and documentation in CTAN:

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex.html
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex.html


but it doesn't works…

This is what I did:


1. Like in the README of the CTAN page o biblatex (
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/exptl/biblatex/README
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/exptl/biblatex/README ) I have
install the archives in the local directory texmf:

Copy all files found in the 'latex' directory of this package to

/tex/latex/biblatex/

and the file in the 'biblatex' directory to

/bibtex/bst/biblatex/

where  denotes the root of the local TeX installation tree


Later, sudo rehash in terminal and reconfigure in LyX. 

2. The next step, follow the Biblatex manual in the LyX page:

[url]http://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/Biblatex[/url]

Where the first step is:

Put the file biblatex.module in the layouts folder in your user directory
(Help→About LyX tells you where you can find this directory).

Run Edit→Reconfigure, restart LyX and select the module
"Biblatex-citation-styles" from Document→Settings→Modules.

OK, here is the first problem, it doesn't appears the cited module in
Document→Settings→Modules.

What can I do?

Thank you



Prior to the start of the first enumeration where you want Roman 
numerals, insert the following in ERT (TeX):


\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\roman{enumi}.}

That makes enumeration labels at the outermost level lower case Roman 
numerals followed by a period.  Change 'enumi' to 'enumii' (both 
occurrences) for second level (nested) enumerations, or to 'enumiii' for 
third tier (twice nested) enumerations.  Change '\roman' to '\Roman' if 
you want upper case Roman numerals (IV rather than iv).  If you want 
them surround in parentheses rather than followed by a period, include 
the desired punctuation in the last argument.


If you need to return to conventional numbering of an enumeration later, 
put the following in ERT prior to the start of that enumeration:


\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\arabic{enumi}.}

You can switch back and forth ad nauseum.

Notice that Paul's sound advice will only change the numbering in the final 
output NOT in Lyx. 

As far as I know there is still no way to change Lyx's on screen display 
accordingly. Just ignore it and check the pdf every once in a while to make 
sure Latex is producing the output you want

It would help if you'd specify exactly where you put things, as the
correct locations differ from platform to platform.

On Mac, BibLaTeX should go in ~/Library/texmf/ (Make sure you put
the biblatex.bst file in the bibtex/bst/ directory, and everything
else in the tex/latex/ directory.) Make sure you do texhash (not
"rehash" as you say above); sudo texhash is not necessary to update
files placed in this directory.

On Mac, Modules should go in ~/Library/Application Support/LyX-1.6/layouts.

After that, reconfigure LyX, restart, and the module should appear in
Document > Settings > Modules.

If you've done all this and the module still doesn't appear within
LyX, try downloading the module again and reinstalling (perhaps it got
corrupted somehow).

All the files of the latex directory of the packet I've downloaded was in

It doesn't work because I have two biblatex.module files or two

Ibíd or Op. cit.!― Works very fine and whithout downloading anything!.

Hi there,

I'm using Biblatex successfully without anything selected in Document- 
>Settings->Modules. Perhaps this step isn't necessary? As it happens  
I don't have a Biblatex option to select here, just as yourself. (In  
fact, I'm not 100% sure a biblatex module was available for download  
when I set Biblatex up on my machine a month or two ago.)


I have 'default' selected in  Document->Settings->Bibliography and the  
following two lines in preamble:


\usepackage[style=chicago-notes-df]{biblatex}
\bibliography{}

Everything has worked for me with no problems. Chicago notes is a  
suitable whole reference citation format - but you'll need to download  
the relevant files http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex-chicago-notes-df.html 
. The documentation is clear - put things where it says and it should  
work fine.

Prior to the start of the first enumeration where you want Roman 
numerals, insert the following in ERT (TeX):


\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\roman{enumi}.}

That makes enumeration labels at the outermost level lower case Roman 
numerals followed by a period.  Change 'enumi' to 'enumii' (both 
occurrences) for second level (nested) enumerations, or to 'enumiii' for 
third tier (twice nested) enumerations.  Change '\roman' to '\Roman' if 
you want upper case Roman numerals (IV rather than iv).  If you want 
them surround in parentheses rather than followed by a period, include 
the desired punctuation in the last argument.


If you need to return to conventional numbering of an enumeration later, 
put the following in ERT prior to the start of that enumeration:


\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\arabic{enumi}.}

You can switch back and forth ad nauseum.

Hi there,

I'm using Biblatex successfully without anything selected in Document- 
Settings-Modules. Perhaps this step isn't necessary? As it happens  
I don't have a Biblatex option to select here, just as yourself. (In  
fact, I'm not 100% sure a biblatex module was available for download  
when I set Biblatex up on my machine a month or two ago.)


I have 'default' selected in  Document-Settings-Bibliography and the  
following two lines in preamble:


\usepackage[style=chicago-notes-df]{biblatex}
\bibliography{name of bib file without .bib extension}

Everything has worked for me with no problems. Chicago notes is a  
suitable whole reference citation format - but you'll need to download  
the relevant files http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex-chicago-notes-df.html 
. The documentation is clear - put things where it says and it should  
work fine.

As far as I know, the proper way to typeset values and dimensions is to use
units package. When you want to write 1 mm, you use: \unit[1]{mm}.
In Lyx, if I select that expression and press Ctrl+M to convert it to a
formula, I works perfectly. But if I start math mode first by pressing
Ctrl+M and type \unit[... it does not seem to work.
Anyone has an idea how to do that?

Thanks

You should enter \unitone or \unittwo...

To get 1 mm, enter \unittwo and insert 1 in the first box and mm 
in the second box.

changed indentation for quotations

Hi,

is there a way to change indentation for quotes and quotations in the preamble 
of a document? I'd need left indentation 0.7cm, right indentation 0cm.

All I found was changes inside the document, such as:

\leftskip=2cm % ggf. verstellen

Not a very encouraging option when you need to change about 1,000 quotations.

Exactly what to do depends upon your document class, but the short 
version is that you can just \renewenvironment the quote environment by 
copying it out of the class and changing it as you see fit. It's just a 
list environment. E.g., here are the ones from book.cls:


\newenvironment{quotation}
{\list{}{\listparindent 1.5em%
\itemindent \listparindent
\rightmargin \leftmargin
\parsep \z@ \...@plus\p@}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}
\newenvironment{quote}
{\list{}{\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}

You could try putting \setlength\leftmargin{2cm} in there, and adjust 
as need be, e.g.:

\renewenvironment{quote}
{\list{}{\setlength\leftmargin{2cm}\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}
Something like that should work.

 I just create this directory and put the biblatex.bst there. Now I hace two
biblatex.bst, one in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst and another
in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst/biblatex


Make sure you do texhash (not rehash as you say above);


I'm sorry!. I did sudo texhash, but I wrote rehash in the post. Was an error
while writing…


I've done texhash and reconfigure, but the module doesnt appears in the D
ocument→Settings→Modules...

It doesn't work because I have two biblatex.module files or two
biblatex.bst?

Now I'm making the references manually ―make a footnote and write the whole
reference. Copy it into the biliography append, and its OK. And I can put
Ibíd or Op. cit.!― Works very fine and whithout downloading anything!.
Really, I need to make the references automatically, I'm typing a lot of
them, but i don't know what happens with my Lyx.

Hi, thank you for the response:

On Mac, BibLaTeX should go in ~/Library/texmf/ (Make sure you put

Ok, everything was where you say.

Biblatex.module was in the ~/application support/Lyx–1.6/Layouts

All the files of the latex directory of the packet I've downloaded  
was in

the  ~/tex/latex/biblatex directory

biblatex.bst was in ~/Library/Texmf/Bibtex/bst

At this point, in the Readme of Biblatex say

[…] and the file in the 'bibtex' directory [it refers to

Hi there,

I'm using Biblatex successfully without anything selected in Document- 
Settings-Modules. Perhaps this step isn't necessary? As it happens  
I don't have a Biblatex option to select here, just as yourself. (In  
fact, I'm not 100% sure a biblatex module was available for download  
when I set Biblatex up on my machine a month or two ago.)


I have 'default' selected in  Document-Settings-Bibliography and the  
following two lines in preamble:


\usepackage[style=chicago-notes-df]{biblatex}
\bibliography{name of bib file without .bib extension}

Everything has worked for me with no problems. Chicago notes is a  
suitable whole reference citation format - but you'll need to download  
the relevant files http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/biblatex-chicago-notes-df.html 
. The documentation is clear - put things where it says and it should  
work fine.
