Re: Instant preview not instant

2006-02-28 Thread gumm

I have known the problem Stacia and Paul are  reporting,
and I agree with Paul, that one can easily live with it.

Still, I could imagine that one could provide key command,
prompting LyX or instant preview  to do a refresh - either
for the current editing window or for the whole document.

You're not doing anything wrong.  A brief delay before processing a 
formula would not be unreasonable; I not infrequently lurch out of a 
math inset before I'm done editing it (hit the space bar one time too 
many coming out of a subscript, for instance), and have to dive right 
back in.  A deliberate (brief) delay would save some wasted 
processing.  What you and I are experiencing, however, does not seem 
to be a planned delay (or at least not solely that), since some insets 
convert almost immediately and others sit around for quite a while in 
their raw state.




When I open up a document sometimes I have trouble with the instant
preview too, especially with linguistics trees and stuff. I couldn't
seem to reproduce the problem with my math paper and subscripts (given
a couple seconds they all turned into the instant preview version).



Instant preview is doing running latex each time it updates, so if you 
have a lot of insets (and some of them require more than average 
processing by latex), it's not surprising that the initial conversions 
might take a while.  That said, I run into the same problem of insets 
waiting for Godot when I open a document that I do when editing.


It's a bit distracting, but IMHO not a major problem.

newly downloaded font problem

2006-02-28 Thread JeeBee
Dear LyX-users,

I downloaded the font AnnSton from here
http://ftp.nluug.nl/textproc/tex-archive/fonts/initials/

Then I put all these files in the same directory as my .lyx file.

This in the preamble:
\input AnnSton.fd

This somewhere in my document (a LaTeX inset):
{\fontsize{60pt}{72pt}\usefont{U}{AnnSton}{xl}{n}
 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z}

Now, LyX gives me this error:
Font U/AnnSton/xl/n/60=AnnSton at 60.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not 
 ...ze{60pt}{72pt}\usefont{U}{AnnSton}{xl}{n}
  
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\fontsame font id=substitute font name'.

Seems like it doesn't find the AnnSton.tfm, which is also in the current
directory?

Then, when I export this file to LaTeX, and run LaTeX on it, it does work!

Can anybody perhaps explain how I can make the LyX version run?

Thanks in advance,
JeeBee.

Nomenclature

2006-02-28 Thread Gisbert, Fernando
Is there any way of generating a nomenclature inside lyx? I have not seen any 
place where I can specify the makeindex options. I must export the lyx document

figures that are not *.ps or *.eps, and are not properly handled with latex

Focus not returned to text after insert

2006-02-28 Thread Daniel Watkins
Using 1.4.0svn of a couple of days ago, whenever I try to insert anything
that is on the first level of the Insert menu (i.e. 'Insert  Footnote' as
opposed to 'Insert  Note  ...') using the keyboard, focus is not returned
to the text window after the item is inserted. For example, were I to use
'M-i f' to insert a footnote and then typed 'f', the File menu would be
opened.

In addition to this, and possibly a separate issue, if I then press the Meta
key (Alt) again, to return the cursor to the text area (as happens even
under normal LyX conditions) the menus are no longer selected but neither
is the text area usable. Pressing keys on the keyboard does nothing.

lyx and otftotfm

Hello,

I'd like to use otftotfm to convert some of my opentype typefaces for 
use in lyx (windows with miktex).


I'm not sure, however, where to install the files. When I run the 
program it doesn't find the various files it needs, and I get


encoding 't1' not found. The manual wasn't helpful because there is no

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: --- em dash without hyphenation, global setting

2006-02-28 Thread Marcelo Acuña
  No, I have about 1000 of this ---comment---, and I
  need a global setting.
 
 I think it is not possible to redefine --- without
 changing the font metrics.
 Instead, you will have to define your own emdash
 character that does not allow 
 a linebreak. Something like
 

\newcommand\myem{\textormath{\leavevmode\hbox{---}}{---}}
 
 Then you could do
 
 \newcommand\mycomment[1]{\myem#1\myem}
 
 and wrap all you comments in \mycomment{this is a
 comment}
 
 If you do not need, say, underline, in your
 document, you could furthermore 
 redefine underline as 
 
 \renewcommand\underbar{\mycomment}
 
 and just underline all you comments in LyX.
 
 Or do it with colors as described here:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/lyx/index.htm#BuiltinCharacterStyles
 
 However, if this is really such a common task in
 Spanish documents, posting a 
 question to the Spanish TeX newsgroup
 (es.comp.lenguajes.tex) might help 
 further.
 
 HTH,
 Jürgen
 
Thanks Jürgen, I posted the problem to
es.comp.lenguajes.tex and I get a solution
but this work in Kile and not work in Lyx.
Is not global but simple.
A person in that list say that
after put \usepackage[spanish]{babel}
in preamble  I must put a tilde (~) 
prev to em dash ~---like this---
In lyx this not work. Tilde is print without
any change but, before I re-quest to this
person I check it with Kile and this work very
well, tilde is not print and hyphenation is
made correctly.
How I can get it in Lyx?
But I think that a global setting must be
exist. (I never see a broken line like this
).
Or like this (
this is a comment).
I think that same behavior of latex with )
and --- must be exist.
How I can get it?
Remember that I not want avoid hyphenation
in entire comments. I only need that hyphenation
not cut em dash from joint word.
Thanks
Marcelo

http://dojo.miktex.org/blogs/christian_schenk/archive/2006/02/27/320.aspx
The MiKTeX CD-R is available again. It contains a live MiKTeX system
(as of 2/21/2006).
Some not so important packages had to be omitted from the distribution in 
order to make it fit on the CD-R.


http://miktex.org/CD/  Or burn your own CD-R from a somewhat
older ISO image (available here).

http://www.tug.org/ftp/tex/miktex/  md.iso.bz2
all the Miktex packages to be burnt onto a cd, which become *.cabs
I think it is safer to unpack this with C:\msys\1.0\bin\bzip2.exe
because WinRar misses files sometimes. I think bzip2.exe comes
with default install of MinSys which is one of LyX's helper apps.
So you would invoke bzip2.exe from the command line on the file.

From say C:\isos or whatever folder contains the downloaded file, you

would type at the command line using the Msys shell, (without quotes)
C:\msys\1.0\bin\bzip2.exe -d md.iso.bz2 enter unpacks the iso.

The Miktex program comes with three helper utilities,
Miktex Update Wizard, Miktex Options and Miktex Package Manager.
Use Start-All Programs-Miktex and put your mouse pointer on Miktex and a 
drop-down box appears with several options including those above.


If you just install one package, say setspace.sty, or a new font, then
you need to open up the Mitex Options utility, and run Refresh Now.
This makes the Miktex filename database aware of the new additions.
By install I mean put the file(s) in the correct C:\texmf or localtexmf
directory. Then you still need to run Miktex Options, Refresh Now, next.

Stephen

However, Lyx reset to 1 the enumeration after the standard text. How can 
I get around that problem. I looked on the Wiki and the closest I got to

lyx and otftotfm

2006-02-28 Thread mail.k

Hello,

I'd like to use otftotfm to convert some of my opentype typefaces for 
use in lyx (windows with miktex).


I'm not sure, however, where to install the files. When I run the 
program it doesn't find the various files it needs, and I get


encoding 't1' not found. The manual wasn't helpful because there is no 
windows support.



Does anyone know how to fix this?


Thanks,


e.

Re: --- em dash without hyphenation, global setting

2006-02-28 Thread Marcelo Acuña
  No, I have about 1000 of this ---comment---, and I
  need a global setting.
 
 I think it is not possible to redefine --- without
 changing the font metrics.
 Instead, you will have to define your own emdash
 character that does not allow 
 a linebreak. Something like
 

\newcommand\myem{\textormath{\leavevmode\hbox{---}}{---}}
 
 Then you could do
 
 \newcommand\mycomment[1]{\myem#1\myem}
 
 and wrap all you comments in \mycomment{this is a
 comment}
 
 If you do not need, say, underline, in your
 document, you could furthermore 
 redefine underline as 
 
 \renewcommand\underbar{\mycomment}
 
 and just underline all you comments in LyX.
 
 Or do it with colors as described here:

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/lyx/index.htm#BuiltinCharacterStyles
 
 However, if this is really such a common task in
 Spanish documents, posting a 
 question to the Spanish TeX newsgroup
 (es.comp.lenguajes.tex) might help 
 further.
 
 HTH,
 Jürgen
 
Thanks Jürgen, I posted the problem to

 Yes, or use MiKTeX's package manager.
 The best solution is to open MiKTeX Options, switch to the tab

The MiKTeX CD-R is available again. It contains a live MiKTeX system
(as of 2/21/2006).
Some not so important packages had to be omitted from the distribution in 
order to make it fit on the CD-R.


http://miktex.org/CD/  Or burn your own CD-R from a somewhat
older ISO image (available here).

http://www.tug.org/ftp/tex/miktex/  md.iso.bz2
all the Miktex packages to be burnt onto a cd, which become *.cabs
I think it is safer to unpack this with C:\msys\1.0\bin\bzip2.exe
because WinRar misses files sometimes. I think bzip2.exe comes
with default install of MinSys which is one of LyX's helper apps.
So you would invoke bzip2.exe from the command line on the file.

From say C:\isos or whatever folder contains the downloaded file, you

would type at the command line using the Msys shell, (without quotes)
C:\msys\1.0\bin\bzip2.exe -d md.iso.bz2 enter unpacks the iso.

The Miktex program comes with three helper utilities,
Miktex Update Wizard, Miktex Options and Miktex Package Manager.
Use Start-All Programs-Miktex and put your mouse pointer on Miktex and a 
drop-down box appears with several options including those above.


If you just install one package, say setspace.sty, or a new font, then
you need to open up the Mitex Options utility, and run Refresh Now.
This makes the Miktex filename database aware of the new additions.
By install I mean put the file(s) in the correct C:\texmf or localtexmf
directory. Then you still need to run Miktex Options, Refresh Now, next.

What I am trying to create is the following enumerated list;

1. Item 1

4. Item 4
5. Item 5

However, Lyx reset to 1 the enumeration after the standard text. How can 
I get around that problem. I looked on the Wiki and the closest I got to 
an answer is from Paul A. Rubin who wrote that \newcounter{myCounter}

However, I got stucked with errors when trying to mimic his ERT code

Re: Instant preview not instant

2006-02-28 Thread gumm

I have known the problem Stacia and Paul are  reporting,
and I agree with Paul, that one can easily live with it.

Still, I could imagine that one could provide key command,
prompting LyX or instant preview  to do a refresh - either
for the current editing window or for the whole document.

Paul A. Rubin wrote:


Stacia Hartleben wrote:


I was going to post this again in the IPA question list, but I thought
I might post it here. I'm using LyX 1.3.7 on Windows. Sometimes when
I'm working with instant preview (not just linguistics, when I am
writing math papers with subscripts and so on), LyX will not
automatically change everything into an instant preview.



This happens to me, somewhat routinely (same version, same OS -- also 
happened with 1.3.6).



I'm left with
a weird looking paper where half of the subscripts are in instant
preview and half aren't. The only way to get them out of this mode is
to click on the item and then click outside of it - usually then it
makes it display.



I think scrolling up and down (and being a bit patient before 
returning to an inset) sometimes "gooses" LyX to do the IP conversion.



Is this supposed to happen,



Probably not.


or are the images
supposed to display "instantly" sort of like how graphics display? Am
I doing something wrong? I can send a screenshot if someone is
confused about what I mean.



You're not doing anything wrong.  A brief delay before processing a 
formula would not be unreasonable; I not infrequently lurch out of a 
math inset before I'm done editing it (hit the space bar one time too 
many coming out of a subscript, for instance), and have to dive right 
back in.  A deliberate (brief) delay would save some wasted 
processing.  What you and I are experiencing, however, does not seem 
to be a planned delay (or at least not solely that), since some insets 
convert almost immediately and others sit around for quite a while in 
their "raw" state.




When I open up a document sometimes I have trouble with the instant
preview too, especially with linguistics trees and stuff. I couldn't
seem to reproduce the problem with my math paper and subscripts (given
a couple seconds they all turned into the instant preview version).



Instant preview is doing running latex each time it updates, so if you 
have a lot of insets (and some of them require more than average 
processing by latex), it's not surprising that the initial conversions 
might take a while.  That said, I run into the same problem of insets 
waiting for Godot when I open a document that I do when editing.


It's a bit distracting, but IMHO not a major problem.

newly downloaded font problem

2006-02-28 Thread JeeBee
Dear LyX-users,

I downloaded the font AnnSton from here
http://ftp.nluug.nl/textproc/tex-archive/fonts/initials/

Then I put all these files in the same directory as my .lyx file.

This in the preamble:
\input AnnSton.fd

This somewhere in my document (a LaTeX inset):
{\fontsize{60pt}{72pt}\usefont{U}{AnnSton}{xl}{n}
 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z}

Now, LyX gives me this error:
Font U/AnnSton/xl/n/60=AnnSton at 60.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not 
 ...ze{60pt}{72pt}\usefont{U}{AnnSton}{xl}{n}
  
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.
[Wizards can fix TFM files using TFtoPL/PLtoTF.]
You might try inserting a different font spec;
e.g., type `I\font='.

Seems like it doesn't find the AnnSton.tfm, which is also in the current
directory?

Then, when I export this file to LaTeX, and run LaTeX on it, it does work!

Can anybody perhaps explain how I can make the LyX version run?

Thanks in advance,
JeeBee.

Nomenclature

2006-02-28 Thread Gisbert, Fernando
Is there any way of generating a nomenclature inside lyx? I have not seen any 
place where I can specify the makeindex options. I must export the lyx document

figures that are not *.ps or *.eps, and are not properly handled with latex 
without converting them first, which is an awful task.
Thanks.


Focus not returned to text after insert

2006-02-28 Thread Daniel Watkins
Using 1.4.0svn of a couple of days ago, whenever I try to insert anything
that is on the first level of the Insert menu (i.e. 'Insert > Footnote' as
opposed to 'Insert > Note > ...') using the keyboard, focus is not returned
to the text window after the item is inserted. For example, were I to use
'M-i f' to insert a footnote and then typed 'f', the File menu would be
opened.

In addition to this, and possibly a separate issue, if I then press the Meta
key (Alt) again, to return the cursor to the text area (as happens even
under normal LyX conditions) the menus are no longer selected but neither
is the text area usable. Pressing keys on the keyboard does nothing.

2006-02-28 Thread Mathieu Richaud

Hello all,

What I am trying to create is the following enumerated list;

1. Item 1
2. Item 2
3. Item 3
[standard text]
4. Item 4
5. Item 5

However, Lyx reset to 1 the enumeration after the standard text. How can 
I get around that problem. I looked on the Wiki and the closest I got to 
an answer is from Paul A. Rubin who wrote that \newcounter{myCounter} 
could be used. (http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/ReferToEnumeratedItem)


However, I got stucked with errors when trying to mimic his ERT code 
from my list.


Thanks,

Mathieu
