lyx crashes in Windows 7 64b

2012-05-25 Thread Timothy Poate
Hey,

I have been trying to download lyx and keep having problems. The main issue is 
that lyx opens but has no functionality- If I click on the new document button 
I get the pink writing area at the top which I can write in with no problem, 
however all other buttons/menus do not work. Most are in colour so not greyed 
out, but I cannot do anything with them?

Anyone else had this? I have uninstalled, re-installed, several times, set as 
use for 1 user, set for all users, I have MikTex installed as necessary.

If anyone has an idea of how I can provide more info to help diagnose please 
explain.

Cheers
Tim



Problem with working directory

2012-05-25 Thread Hobbs,Tom

Hello--

When I set the working directory to a location where I keep .pdf files for 
figures, LyX cannot find them.  If I set the path explicitly, then all is well. 
 However, this creates problems when I want to share the document with other 
who must revise all pathnames.  Setting the working directory used to work as a 
way to group files that a document needs, but mysteriously, it has stopped 
working.  I would be very grateful for suggestions on how to fix this.  I am 
using LyX 2.0, but I tried 2.03 and it has the same problem.

Many thanks.

Tom

Is there a reason not to keep the figures in the same directory as the 
LyX file? or in a subdirectory of it? Then you can use relative 
pathnames, which should work.
