There is only the option to scale a picture by percentages of column
width or page width and height, respectively.  But the second part of
your request still works for this.  If you set width or height to a

section-names in headers?

1999-08-24 Thread Tony Dancer

I am using AMS srticle format, and thanks to some help from the group
already have made some configuration changes to the section/subsection
etc formats. A look through the mail archive suggests I would be better
off using amsbook, but this is a paper, not a book, so the formatting
on other stuff  in amsbook is off for my current purposes.

I now wish to have the headers display the section name on the left
hand side, and the sub-section name on the right. I also want the
\cfoot to have page numbers (I can manage this bit tho!). I have tried
using \renewcommand and I have tried using fancyhdr, trying to adapt
what I gleaned from instructions to changing the section/subsection
previously from Herbert. But I can't get it to work. 

Can someone enlighten me on the easiest way to achieve what I want,
using lyx or latex commands. Some help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Tony

try Ctrl-Enter at the end of your title and write your subtitle in the
next line. If you want some vertical space between title and subtitle
than write "\vspace{1cm}" in texmode (red) before your subtitle starts.

The fancyhdr makes what you want if you redefine the way the running headers
are constructed. From my report style preamble:


\renewcommand{\chaptermark}[1]{
\markboth{\thechapter.\ \textsc{#1}}{}} % number . chapheader text in small caps
\renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{
\markright{\thesection\ \textsc{#1}}}  % number  sectheader text in small caps
% markers style redefinition

\rhead[\fancyplain{}{\it\leftmark}]{\fancyplain{\rm\thepage}{\rm\thepage}}
%left header : chaptertitle on odd pages ,
%page number on  even pages
\chead{}   % empty center header

\lhead[\fancyplain{\rm\thepage}{\rm\thepage}]{\fancyplain{}{\it\rightmark}}
%right header : sectiontitle on even pages,
%   page number on  odd pages

\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.4pt} 
\renewcommand{\plainheadrulewidth}{0pt} 
%   rule control: no rules on chapter pages

This must be too complicated for your needs if you build a one-sided
document because of the fancyplain stuff (chapter are on fresh
odd pages, and we want only the page number without rule in that case).

It's a bit intricated, but I'm afraid you must
dig in this if you really want a particular page layout.

combining portrait and landscape

1999-08-24 Thread Frederic Leymarie

Dear LyXers

Here is my problem:
I have a document containing tables,
some of which fit on Portrait (vertical orientation)
but with others fitting only in Landscape mode
(large horizontal tables).

How can I generate the PostScript version
with the right combination of portrait and
landscape modes?

When I go in the "Paper Layout" menu,
the "Portrait" / "Landscape" option
has a global effect on the document (apparently).

Thanks for your insights. ...

Have you got Perl available ?
reLyX (the LaTeX2lyx translator) is written in Perl...
That may explain the disabled option if Perl is not found
at install time. You may check your install log as well.

LinuxPPC 5.0: installation problem

1999-08-24 Thread Jean-Pierre Muller

Hi there,

I am trying to install Lyx on LinuxPPC 5.0 but configure is unable to
find the xforms library. Does anyone know where I could find the newest
(source) version in order to install it.

Thanks in advance

Jean-Pierre Muller



combining portrait and landscape

1999-08-24 Thread Frederic Leymarie

Dear LyXers

Here is my problem:
I have a document containing tables,
some of which fit on Portrait (vertical orientation)
but with others fitting only in Landscape mode
(large horizontal tables).

How can I generate the PostScript version
with the right combination of portrait and
landscape modes?

When I go in the "Paper Layout" menu,
the "Portrait" / "Landscape" option
has a global effect on the document (apparently).

Thanks for your insights. ...

Can you try with full debug output turned on?

run lyx as "lyx -dbg 65535"

and see if any of the messages given gives a clue.
