these figures, but in despite I´m using the advanced placement option  Here 
definetely, all the figures are being displayed in the beginning  of the page, 
instead of in the place I added them in the source  document.
  Is it possible that another document layout option is affecting the whole

I don't understand your reply. pdflatex doesn't process .eps
according to documentation.

What part of LyX automatically changes all .eps images into
.png or .jpeg or .pdf so that when you have a lyx document
which contains .eps images open, you can then click on
View -pdflatex and this will work because LyX by default has
previously converted those .eps files into jpeg, png, or pdf, so
that such images are available for generating the pdf file by pdflatex?

Pauls report:
View -- PDF (pdflatex) I do not get the picture on the PDF document.

My experience is that I can generate the a viewable .pdf file using dvipdfm
but not pdflatex. http://bugzilla.lyx.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2299

Did I understand your original report incorrectly? I thought you
said that the .eps graphic wasn't displayed when using pdflatex.

That is a different issue than an .eps figure not displaying in LyX.

When I read the error originally reported, it did not seem to me that
failure to display in LyX was the problem:

Paul Smith wrote:

Dear All

I have an EPS picture inserted in a LyX document. When I run

View -- PDF (pdflatex)

I do not get the picture on the PDF document. On the command
line, it appears the following:

$ /usr/share/lyx/scripts/convertDefault.sh ERROR
Execution of convert failed.

-

I have a document which has a figure labelled something.eps
That image is displayed when I run sample.lyx which contains it.

That does not enable the use of pdflatex to convert that .eps file.
pdflatex does not process .eps files, but dvipdfm does.

Perhaps I misunderstood your report and you meant the eps image
did not display within LyX itself. I've had that problem too, and
converting to pdf with either pdflatex or dvipdfm doesn't work.
But when this does work, LyX is not the source of conversion for
the eps file into pdf format, dvips does it.

In any event, your original report suggests that you wanted to use
pdflatex to convert and read the pdf doc containing the eps image.

View -- PDF (pdflatex) I do not get the picture on the PDF document.

The pdflatex process is not designed to view .eps files. It is not supposed
to work. dvipfm is designed to view .eps files

I am able to view .eps files (at least one) in LyX. That process is not the
source for providing an .eps file for inclusion/viewing in the pdf format.
pdflatex doesn't work, dvipdfm does, and they are a separate processes.

So whether or not you could see the .eps graphic within LyX, one does
not View it in PDF using pdflatex. One can view it later with pdflatex
after first converting the .eps file to a png or jpeg or .pdf image.

At least it works this way for me,
Stephen

a4paper: Random Margins?

2006-02-19 Thread John McCabe-Dansted
Hi, I've been using a4wide, which seems to behave reasonably with a4
paper, but now I am trying to get border correction (so that the inner
margin is wider than the outer)

Thus I tried using the line

\usepackage[a4paper,top=2cm,bottom=2cm,inner=2.5cm,outer=2cm]{geometry}

This gets the border correction to work, but the top and bottom
margins are wrong. Although I set a top  bottom margin of 2cm the
header is only 3mm from the top and the page number touches the lower
edge of the page.  I can correct this by adding another 2cm to the top
and bottom margin. However the page prints differently with different
printers --- on the HP-Laserjet4L it prints 1 or 2cm higher on the
page than with the university printers.

Has anyone got reliable (and preferrably correct) margins with border
correction on A4 paper?

Figures location

Hi all,
  I´m writing a document with a lot of figures. I´m succeeding to convert  
these figures, but in despite I´m using the advanced placement option  Here 
definetely, all the figures are being displayed in the beginning  of the page, 
instead of in the place I added them in the source  document.
  Is it possible that another document layout option is affecting the whole

It is supposed to do that, and it does so in almost all cases. There are

I don't understand your reply. pdflatex doesn't process .eps
according to documentation.

What part of LyX automatically changes all .eps images into
.png or .jpeg or .pdf so that when you have a lyx document
which contains .eps images open, you can then click on
View -pdflatex and this will work because LyX by default has
previously converted those .eps files into jpeg, png, or pdf, so
that such images are available for generating the pdf file by pdflatex?

Pauls report:
View -- PDF (pdflatex) I do not get the picture on the PDF document.

My experience is that I can generate the a viewable .pdf file using dvipdfm
but not pdflatex. http://bugzilla.lyx.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2299

a4paper: Random Margins?

2006-02-19 Thread John McCabe-Dansted
Hi, I've been using a4wide, which seems to behave reasonably with a4
paper, but now I am trying to get border correction (so that the inner
margin is wider than the outer)

Thus I tried using the line

\usepackage[a4paper,top=2cm,bottom=2cm,inner=2.5cm,outer=2cm]{geometry}

This gets the border correction to work, but the top and bottom
margins are wrong. Although I set a top  bottom margin of 2cm the
header is only 3mm from the top and the page number touches the lower
edge of the page.  I can correct this by adding another 2cm to the top
and bottom margin. However the page prints differently with different
printers --- on the HP-Laserjet4L it prints 1 or 2cm higher on the
page than with the university printers.

Has anyone got reliable (and preferrably correct) margins with border
correction on A4 paper?

The problem is that the author is put into a centered tabular by koma script. 
One hack would be to put the author (in the author environment) in a minipage 
of 100% columnwidth, and put \hspace*{-\tabcolsep} before the author's name.

a4paper: Random Margins?

2006-02-19 Thread John McCabe-Dansted
Hi, I've been using a4wide, which seems to behave reasonably with a4
paper, but now I am trying to get border correction (so that the inner
margin is wider than the outer)

Thus I tried using the line

\usepackage[a4paper,top=2cm,bottom=2cm,inner=2.5cm,outer=2cm]{geometry}

This gets the border correction to work, but the top and bottom
margins are wrong. Although I set a top & bottom margin of 2cm the
header is only 3mm from the top and the page number touches the lower
edge of the page.  I can correct this by adding another 2cm to the top
and bottom margin. However the page prints differently with different
printers --- on the HP-Laserjet4L it prints 1 or 2cm higher on the
page than with the university printers.

Has anyone got reliable (and preferrably correct) margins with border
correction on A4 paper?
