RevTeX

1999-06-23 Thread Alessandro Magni


I am a newbie to TeX, so this could explain many things.
After installing LyX, I tried to read a paper of a friend of main,
written down in laTeX, using RevTeX macros.
Update postscript gave me a lot (more than 500) errors, even after
specifying to use Layout-document-revTeX.

There is something I do not know?


Thanks a lot

Alessandro

you put your tables in table floats (I guess yes, since you say they

Jean-Marc,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Here is what I have done. I have one very large table. 
I wanted to place it in one table float. But when I 
check long table (to cause it to break across pages), 
it never splits across pages. So instead I made 8 
separate tables by hand. After doing this, when I tried 
to create a Postscript view, I only got two pages 
instead of 18 pages. Then I looked at the log to see 
what was happening. So now I've broken the document 
into three parts which is OK but not ideal.

I hope that if I don't use the table float, the table 
will break across pages.

Advice reqd.: Going to start thesis

1999-06-23 Thread Q Modnar

Hi, this will be my first attempt at writing a thesis using
LyX and so I've been following the discussions on the
subject which were taking place in May. Before I start
writing the thesis I'd like some info. I'd appreciate it
even if you have answers to only some of the questions:

1. Since my university doesn't have a fixed class style
(there's guidelines but no fix style), should I use the
"book" style or "article" style?

2. Is it possible to have my bibliography in the format:
   Authorname, Title, Year
instead of
   [1] Authorname, Title, Year
The reason I'm asking is that I'd like to reference papers
by Authorname, Year in the body of my thesis instead of
using number in the form of [x]. If this is possible then
how are cross references and labels made.

3. Since I expect the thesis to run into a couple of
hundred pages I thought of writing it in sections, i.e. a
each  chapter in a seperate files, so that it's easy for me
to carry a copy round in a disk. Will I have any trouble
combining the chapters later? What happens to the
bibliography? Can I have a common bibliography for all the
files?

Thanks very much!

How to get rid of jaggy fonts?

1999-06-23 Thread Felciano, Ramon


Hi --

I've been running LyX 1.0.3 successfully under RedHat 6.0 on my ThinkPad
600 for a few weeks now with little problems (although I haven't gotten
the previewing to work, but that's a different story...). The one
problem I haven't been able to solve is the appearance of fonts. In
general, they don't look as clean as on my desktop machine, but in
particular:

1. Boldface typefaces (e.g. those used in most headings) appear jagged,
as if they were rendered at a different size and then stretched up.
2. Fonts are much smaller: setting Options - Screen Options - Font
Zoom to 100 on my desktop produces very legible sizes, whereas on my
laptop the sizes are much smaller (appear to be about 5 pixels tall)

I'm generally an X11 novice, but I poked around with xfontsel on both
machines, and they seem to have similar font configurations. For
example, setting xfontsel to display -*-times-medium-r- on both machines
yields the same results. Is there something else that would affect the
size of fonts in LyX?

Thanks in advance.

Ramon

P.S. I very much echo Julian's kudos to Lyx -- it has made LaTeX
palatable for me!!

Re[2]: exporting to MSWord

1999-06-23 Thread Anonymous

A final note to wind up this thread.
I earlier posted that I found "tth" very good, as
Jens Stolze advised us.

EPS vector images are another problem, and there
is pstoedit, which can produce WMF files.
WMF is MSWindows native vector file format, and
MSWord can directly display and edit these in-place.

The pstoedit site:
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Network/1958/pstoedit/
also has a DLL (library) for MSWindows that can enable
PS figures to be viewable inside MSWord -- but the full
version costs money.

I haven't actually tried pstoedit. What I'm using is Mayura
Draw:
http://www.mayura.com/
This is a shareware ($15) MSWindows vector drawing application,
that can convert PS/EPS to WMF and other formats.
It works fine.

Barry Kauler

Hi!

You may want to try true type fonts. This was covered earlier on this
list. You can search the archives for xfstt which is a true-type font
server for X. The true types scale well to larger sizes. They may or may
not help on your laptop screen. I use xfstt under Debian 2.1 and it works
great under LyX.

Advice reqd.: Going to start thesis

1999-06-23 Thread Q Modnar

Hi, this will be my first attempt at writing a thesis using
LyX and so I've been following the discussions on the
subject which were taking place in May. Before I start
writing the thesis I'd like some info. I'd appreciate it
even if you have answers to only some of the questions:

1. Since my university doesn't have a fixed class style
(there's guidelines but no fix style), should I use the
"book" style or "article" style?

2. Is it possible to have my bibliography in the format:
   Authorname, Title, Year
instead of
   [1] Authorname, Title, Year
The reason I'm asking is that I'd like to reference papers
by Authorname, Year in the body of my thesis instead of
using number in the form of [x]. If this is possible then
how are cross references and labels made.

3. Since I expect the thesis to run into a couple of
hundred pages I thought of writing it in sections, i.e. a
each  chapter in a seperate files, so that it's easy for me
to carry a copy round in a disk. Will I have any trouble
combining the chapters later? What happens to the
bibliography? Can I have a common bibliography for all the
files?

Thanks very much!

How to get rid of jaggy fonts?

1999-06-23 Thread Felciano, Ramon


Hi --

I've been running LyX 1.0.3 successfully under RedHat 6.0 on my ThinkPad
600 for a few weeks now with little problems (although I haven't gotten
the previewing to work, but that's a different story...). The one
problem I haven't been able to solve is the appearance of fonts. In
general, they don't look as clean as on my desktop machine, but in
particular:

1. Boldface typefaces (e.g. those used in most headings) appear jagged,
as if they were rendered at a different size and then stretched up.
2. Fonts are much smaller: setting Options -> Screen Options -> Font
Zoom to 100 on my desktop produces very legible sizes, whereas on my
laptop the sizes are much smaller (appear to be about 5 pixels tall)

I'm generally an X11 novice, but I poked around with xfontsel on both
machines, and they seem to have similar font configurations. For
example, setting xfontsel to display -*-times-medium-r- on both machines
yields the same results. Is there something else that would affect the
size of fonts in LyX?

Thanks in advance.

Ramon

P.S. I very much echo Julian's kudos to Lyx -- it has made LaTeX
palatable for me!!

Re[2]: exporting to MSWord

1999-06-23 Thread Anonymous

A final note to wind up this thread.
I earlier posted that I found "tth" very good, as
Jens Stolze advised us.

EPS vector images are another problem, and there
is pstoedit, which can produce WMF files.
WMF is MSWindows native vector file format, and
MSWord can directly display and edit these in-place.

The pstoedit site:
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Network/1958/pstoedit/
also has a DLL (library) for MSWindows that can enable
PS figures to be viewable inside MSWord -- but the full
version costs money.

I haven't actually tried pstoedit. What I'm using is Mayura
Draw:
http://www.mayura.com/
This is a shareware ($15) MSWindows vector drawing application,
that can convert PS/EPS to WMF and other formats.
It works fine.

Regards,
Barry Kauler

Hi!

You may want to try true type fonts. This was covered earlier on this
list. You can search the archives for xfstt which is a true-type font
server for X. The true types scale well to larger sizes. They may or may
not help on your laptop screen. I use xfstt under Debian 2.1 and it works
great under LyX.

Thanks. Syrus.
