Juha,

as you have LyX 1.6svn installed. You could easily test if it works when 
simply copying the attached file msvcp80.dll to the folder of LyX 
1.6svn's lyx.exe.

This way, you can keep LyX 1.5 untouched and help me finding the problem.

If this doesn't help, als copy the file I attached to my previous mail 
to the lyx.exe folder and test if it works.


thanks and regards

I tested as requested, and 1.60svn started OK when both the .dll and 
manifest files were copied into LyX binary directory.  Thank you for the

Re: Why do Inkscape drawing pixellate in LyX?

On 17.03.08, Steve Litt wrote:
 Hi all,

 I have three Inkscape drawings. They pixellate very badly when I export them 
 to .png and then include them in my LyX written book. 

Because PNG is a Pixel format. 

Maybe you can set the resolution somewhere in the Inkscape settings to
improve things a bit, but this does not solve the general problem.

 When I export them to PDF they are pixellated but not as badly. Both
 text and curves pixellate.

They should not pixel at all in PDF as both Inkscapes' native SVG and
PDF are vector graphic formats.

However, if you include something into the graphic that already is pixy
(a PNG graph or a JPEG picture, say), then of course you cannot revert
this.

 What's the best way to put an Inkcape drawn drawing into LyX?

IMO, insertion as SVG (as produced by Inkcape and saved with Ctrl-S)
together with defining the file format and converters in ToolsPreferences:

File Formats: 
  
   SVG:  Extension svg
 Viewerinkview
 Editorinkscape
 x  Vector graphics format

Converters

   SVG - PDF (pdflatex)
 inkscape $$i --export-pdf=$$o
 Converter File Cache 
   x enabled
   
   SVG - EPS
 inkscape $$i --export-eps=$$o
 Converter File Cache 
   x enabled

Maybe inkscape doesn't include the right fonts into the exported

I had some problems with »extra signs« in Hoefler Text that displayed 
well in Inkscape as well as in LyX (using XeTeX) but for some reason 
were not there any more when including the SVG in LyX. I am writing a 
work on islamic political thought, so there is a lot of Arabic 
transliteration I use. Many of the letters, such as in Madîna, ‘Â’ischa 
and so on (I have no idea, whether they will be displayed correctly on 
this list, in my mail client they do (Outlook users usually experience 
problems, e.g.)) simply were not displayed correctly any more. Anyway, 
when exporting the SVG in Inkscape to PDF, the fonts are automatically 
embedded (as far as I remember) and inserting the PDF in LyX is 
painless. My more simple graphics are still SVG directly in LyX, as it 
is more comfortable to only make changes in one file.

Anyway, I think that Inkscape really is the problem here, not LyX.
By the way, just for typographic reasons, you know of the typographic 
criticism of Arial, do you :)?

Problem with Lyx 1.5 in Ubuntu Gutsy

2008-03-18 Thread hansi

Hello,

I started to write a paper in Lyx 1.4.x. I used eps-graphics mostly. I used
the pdflatex-converter and it worked fine. Eps-files were scaled as I
wanted.

Now I upgraded my Ubuntu from Feisty to Gutsy and also the Lyx version to
1.5.1. When I use the pdflatex-converter now, the output (pdf) looks not as
before. They are not scaled as before. This happens also with files, that I
wrote in this version. I installed the older version, what doesn't help,
either. I think it has to do with one of a newer package.

Do you know advise?
Thanks

Why cant i get the citations in the format i want?

2008-03-18 Thread Jon Bendtsen

Hi

I have some trouble getting my citations to look proper.

I use LyX 1.4.1 and BibDesk 1.3.14 on mac osx 10.5.2.

LyX only seem to show these fields, and in this order:
Author
Title
HowPublished
Month
Year
Note


Further more LyX seems to change the letters and remove some chars  
like , in some of the fields.


The author field removes ,
The Title field changes the letters, making them non capital letters.

Why cant LyX just write it like i do in BibDesk?

  The problem is that almost all accented letters are automatically

  Anyone knows of some workaround for this?

 In Document-Settings-Language uncheck Use language's default encoding.

 This should enable the Encoding: combo box beneath.

 Using the combo, choose ascii as the encoding and then try exporting.

Literal monofont underscores?

2008-03-18 Thread Steve Litt
Hi all,

In my latest book I have a screenshot of UMENU, whose license screen has a 
poor man's box comprised of underscores on top and bottom, and pipe symbols 
on the side. In the book, it's in LyX-Code style, which should be a 
monospaced font, and in fact is on everything but underscores.

Trouble is, when I compile it to a PDF, the 78 consecutive underscores take up 
much less horizontal space than 78 corresponding letters or spaces. I don't 
know how to fix this.

I'm not sure whether LyX treats multiple underscores as a different type of 
underscore (similar to 3 hypens make a long dash), or whether the underscores 
do not take up a full character space. I believe it to be the latter, based 
on a diagnostic where I inserted a bunch of underscores, each separated by a 
space, in a monospaced font and compared spacing to regular letters.

Anyone have any idea how to make underscores take a full character width of 
space in a monospaced font?

Thanks

marginal notes not formatting correctly

Subject: marginal notes not formatting correctly

I am using Lyx version 1.5.4 on windows XP with pdflatex for output.  When I 
insert marginal notes into my document they do not format properly - the text 
in the marginal note runs off the bottom of the page instead of wrapping around 
to the next page.  Also the text portion of the marginal note doesn't seem to 
be using all of the available margin space.  Is this something that I can 
change or is it hardcoded?

Is this the way marginal notes are supposed to work?  Is there something I can 
do to prevent this from happening?

Why no numbers in bibliography?

2008-03-18 Thread Kane Kano
I just generated my bibliography list and doesnt look like it should. 

Every source should be represented by a number for instance

[1] Physics.

[2] Paper 

Instead the name of the authors are displayed in alphabetical order. I checked 
alreadey the Lyx settings (document, preferences, bibliography: Natbib and 
numeric are active in the citation style dialogue)


I am using the standard article class (lyx 1.5.2) and natdin.bst (plain.nat did 
not work either) to set the style of the bibliography. I also use JabRef 2.2. 

Any idea?

Thanks in advance

I took only a quick look at the template and can not answer your 
questions but wanted to give you some general advice. The template is 
based on KOMA-Script, which has a very well written German manual, 
which I highly recommend. Many of your questions regarding 
customization are KOMA-related questions in the end and for many of 
them you will need to put LaTeX-code either in the preamble or via ERT. 
The KOMA-handbook will help you to find out, what code to put where.


And, by the way, if you do not need to use the template from Dresden in 
Berlin, then you might as well make your own template, based of 
preferrable KOMA-Book or Memoir (rather than the standard classes). 
Simply start with the basic documents and slowly set up your document 
the way you need it.


Snowy greetings from Vienna,

Hi guys,

May I suggest you Git as a version control system? It's simply the best.

Git is currently used for the collaborative development of the Linux
 kernel and a lot of Linux-related projects. It has the most
advanced features, but can be used with great simplicity by the
majority of developers.

Ok, here I stop the Git advertisement. ;)
For more info google git.

PS: I'm not involved into Git development, nor am I part of Git
Marketing dept. (wondering if it exists). I just like it and want to
share the info.

Best regards.

Well, this is why I've chosen Lyx and this template. Basically I hoped that I

Hi,

Can I give lyx (or imagemagick convert through lyx) or some other latex 
package an option to resample all graphics in a certain resolution to 
reduce the pdf file size?  convert has a -resample option.


I would love to do it on the fly without actually producing lower

Steve,

I just tried two rows of 40 underscores (I'm not as ambitious as you), 
with a line in between consisting of 38 alphanumeric characters and a 
pipe on either side.  This was in a LyX-code environment.  The widths 
matched up pretty well; definitely no wholesale compression of the 
underscores. This holds for both DVI and PDF output (using all three 
methods of PDF generation).  I even futzed around with different 
monospace fonts, but could not screw up the spacing no matter what.


FWIW, I'm on Win XP using MiKTeX 2.6, in case it's something OS- or 
distro-specific.


/Paul



Re: Literal monofont underscores?

2008-03-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

Doh!

And here's why it worked for me and not you:  I typed in the 
underscores, and LyX cleverly escaped them as \_\_ (ad nauseum).  I'm 
guessing you pasted them in or imported them as text, and got just 
underscores, no escapes.

Re: Authors in preamble using \twoauthors

2008-03-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

Phillip Ferguson wrote:

Hey all,

 


Yet again I am having some issues with the spconf.sty.

 


This time it's the authors.

In spconf.sty the comments for \twoauthors are:

 


- use \twoauthors{author1}{address1}{author2}{address2}

% for two (or more) authors with two separate addresses

%- note: no need for \author nor \date

%- optional: can use \thanks{xx} within \name or \twoauthors,

% asterisk is not printed after name nor in footnote

%- optional: can use \sthanks{xx} after each name within \name or

% \twoauthors if different thanks for each author,

% footnote symbol will appear for each name and footnote

 

 


 And it defines \twoauthors:

 


[EMAIL PROTECTED]

   [EMAIL PROTECTED]@[EMAIL PROTECTED]

{\em #1} \\ \\

#2\relax

   \end{tabular}\hskip [EMAIL PROTECTED]@{}}

{\em #3} \\ \\

#4\relax

\end{tabular}}}

 


I have no idea of latex but I guess that this must set the layout and
parameters for only 2 author areas where only one address is allowed. My
problem is that I need 3 authors with three distinct addresses.

Can I modify this piece of code to spread 3 authors evenly across the page?
I suspect I may have to reduce the text size to accommodate all 3.

 


Does anyone know how to set this up correctly, or by doing this am I
violating the template?

 



Have you considered summarily dropping one of your co-authors?  :-)

The \twoauthors macro uses a pair of side-by-side tables to space out 
the authors and institutions, so hypothetically you could cobble 
together a \threeauthors macro along similar lines but with three 
tables.  You likely would have to reduce the font size, which might 
easily offend the conference people.  Before doing that, I would suggest 
contacting them and asking how they would recommend you handle it.

Not that I have seen. You may compress the streams, but not specifically 
reduce resolution of an image. However it is a command line and I could 
do it with a script working on the pdf output - take apart the streams, 
identify the images, and recombine them later, or some thing similar.


I will definitely try that.

Re: Why do Inkscape drawing pixellate in LyX?

On 17.03.08, Steve Litt wrote:
 Hi all,

 I have three Inkscape drawings. They pixellate very badly when I export them 
 to .png and then include them in my LyX written book. 

Because PNG is a Pixel format. 

Maybe you can set the resolution somewhere in the Inkscape settings to
improve things a bit, but this does not solve the general problem.

 When I export them to PDF they are pixellated but not as badly. Both
 text and curves pixellate.

They should not pixel at all in PDF as both Inkscapes' native SVG and
PDF are vector graphic formats.

However, if you include something into the graphic that already is pixy
(a PNG graph or a JPEG picture, say), then of course you cannot revert
this.

 What's the best way to put an Inkcape drawn drawing into LyX?

IMO, insertion as SVG (as produced by Inkcape and saved with Ctrl-S)
together with defining the file format and converters in ToolsPreferences:

File Formats: 
  
   SVG:  Extension svg
 Viewerinkview
 Editorinkscape

Converters

   SVG - PDF (pdflatex)
 inkscape $$i --export-pdf=$$o

when exporting the SVG in Inkscape to PDF, the fonts are automatically 
embedded (as far as I remember) and inserting the PDF in LyX is 
painless. My more simple graphics are still SVG directly in LyX, as it 
is more comfortable to only make changes in one file.

Anyway, I think that Inkscape really is the problem here, not LyX.

 No. What's the typographic criticism of Arial?
I believe that from a pure typographer's pov, it's better to write with a 
cigarette butt than to use Arial. 
There is quite a bit about it online, google away.

It basically, the bibliographic style you're using. Some styles use all the
fields, some not. Also, you have to surround between curly brackets whatever
you want to appear as is, like names. I had that same problem and that's
they way you solve it.

Hope this helps...

 Hi

 I have some trouble getting my citations to look proper.

 I use LyX 1.4.1 and BibDesk 1.3.14 on mac osx 10.5.2.

 LyX only seem to show these fields, and in this order:
 Author
 Title
 HowPublished
 Month
 Year
 Note


 Further more LyX seems to change the letters and remove some chars
 like , in some of the fields.

 The author field removes ,
 The Title field changes the letters, making them non capital letters.

 Why cant LyX just write it like i do in BibDesk?

  Anyone knows of some workaround for this?

 In Document-Settings-Language uncheck Use language's default encoding.

 This should enable the Encoding: combo box beneath.

 Using the combo, choose ascii as the encoding and then try exporting.

Right-o!  That's it.

Bachelor Thesis template from thesis-template.com

Hello everyone,


I'm pretty new to Lyx and I would like to use it in order to write my Bachelor
Thesis within the next few months.
As the newbie I am - I've got some questions about different aspects, mostly
about a template I found online.

Starting with the template: It has been published as a template for the TU
Dresden at www.thesis-template.com I changed a lot according to my needs but
experienced some problems:

1.) The whole document (excepting the title) should have headlines. But somehow
there are no headlines at the TOC and the following page. What do I have to
change in order to get headlines there as well?
2.) a) How can I change the appearance of various indexes (such as list of
figures, tables and abbreviations) in the TOC?
Consider e.g. the bibtex-index: I can do a right-click and mark the checkbox and
it's listed. But what to do for the other indexes?
b) Moreover, is it even possible to assign them a chapter number? Let's 
say my
7th chapter is 'Indexes' containing list of figures at 7.1 and list of
abbreviations at 7.2 and so on... How to achieve that?

And finally just a minor problem - rather a question:
3.) How to insert a non-breaking hyphen? Is there any better way than using
mbox? I read that there's a command for LaTeX (~-) or something similar. But
this one's not working in Lyx. Suggestions anyone?

I would really appreciate if someone might help me on these problems.
Thanks in Advance and have a nice day.

Literal monofont underscores?

2008-03-18 Thread Steve Litt
Hi all,

In my latest book I have a screenshot of UMENU, whose license screen has a 
poor man's box comprised of underscores on top and bottom, and pipe symbols 
on the side. In the book, it's in LyX-Code style, which should be a 
monospaced font, and in fact is on everything but underscores.

Trouble is, when I compile it to a PDF, the 78 consecutive underscores take up 
much less horizontal space than 78 corresponding letters or spaces. I don't 
know how to fix this.

I'm not sure whether LyX treats multiple underscores as a different type of 
underscore (similar to 3 hypens make a long dash), or whether the underscores 
do not take up a full character space. I believe it to be the latter, based 
on a diagnostic where I inserted a bunch of underscores, each separated by a 
space, in a monospaced font and compared spacing to regular letters.

Anyone have any idea how to make underscores take a full character width of 
space in a monospaced font?

Thanks

SteveT

marginal notes not formatting correctly

From: Brian Guenter

Subject: marginal notes not formatting correctly

I am using Lyx version 1.5.4 on windows XP with pdflatex for output.  When I 
insert marginal notes into my document they do not format properly - the text 
in the marginal note runs off the bottom of the page instead of wrapping around 
to the next page.  Also the text portion of the marginal note doesn't seem to 
be using all of the available margin space.  Is this something that I can 
change or is it hardcoded?

Is this the way marginal notes are supposed to work?  Is there something I can 
do to prevent this from happening?

Why no numbers in bibliography?

2008-03-18 Thread Kane Kano
I just generated my bibliography list and doesnt look like it should. 

Every source should be represented by a number for instance

[1] Physics.

[2] Paper 

Instead the name of the authors are displayed in alphabetical order. I checked 
alreadey the Lyx settings (document, preferences, bibliography: Natbib and 
numeric are active in the citation style dialogue)


I am using the standard article class (lyx 1.5.2) and natdin.bst (plain.nat did 
not work either) to set the style of the bibliography. I also use JabRef 2.2. 

Any idea?

Thanks in advance

I took only a quick look at the template and can not answer your 
questions but wanted to give you some general advice. The template is 
based on KOMA-Script, which has a very well written German manual, 
which I highly recommend. Many of your questions regarding 
customization are KOMA-related questions in the end and for many of 
them you will need to put LaTeX-code either in the preamble or via ERT. 
The KOMA-handbook will help you to find out, what code to put where.


And, by the way, if you do not need to use the template from Dresden in 
Berlin, then you might as well make your own template, based of 
preferrable KOMA-Book or Memoir (rather than the standard classes). 
Simply start with the basic documents and slowly set up your document 
the way you need it.

Hi guys,

May I suggest you Git as a version control system? It's simply the best.

Git is currently used for the collaborative development of the Linux
 kernel and a lot of Linux-related projects. It has the most
advanced features, but can be used with great simplicity by the
majority of developers.

Ok, here I stop the Git advertisement. ;)
For more info google git.

PS: I'm not involved into Git development, nor am I part of Git
Marketing dept. (wondering if it exists). I just like it and want to
share the info.

Best regards.

Hi Maksi, thanks for your reply.

Well, this is why I've chosen Lyx and this template. Basically I hoped that I
don't have to learn all these LaTeX commands. But I'll try my best and have a
brief look at the KOMA Script documentation.

If anyone else give me some hint, at least about the headlines since this seams

I have a similar problem since lyx1.5.x on Gutsy.
I have not found solution  for direct conversion eps to pdf with pdflatex.

I must convert the eps figures to pdf figures with 'epstopdf' outside Lyx

gives correct scaled images in the output.

pdf file size

2008-03-18 Thread Miki Dovrat

Hi,

Can I give lyx (or imagemagick convert through lyx) or some other latex 
package an option to resample all graphics in a certain resolution to 
reduce the pdf file size?  convert has a -resample option.


I would love to do it on the fly without actually producing lower 
resolution images on disk, and pointing to them. Can I run a python 
script in the lyx tmp directory by lyx, or any such solution?


I know adobe acrobat does this on the output pdf for $300. Doing convert 
on the pdf ruins the text as well.


Thanks

Re: Literal monofont underscores?

2008-03-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

Steve Litt wrote:

Hi all,

In my latest book I have a screenshot of UMENU, whose license screen has a 
poor man's box comprised of underscores on top and bottom, and pipe symbols 
on the side. In the book, it's in LyX-Code style, which should be a 
monospaced font, and in fact is on everything but underscores.


Trouble is, when I compile it to a PDF, the 78 consecutive underscores take up 
much less horizontal space than 78 corresponding letters or spaces. I don't 
know how to fix this.


I'm not sure whether LyX treats multiple underscores as a different type of 
underscore (similar to 3 hypens make a long dash), or whether the underscores 
do not take up a full character space. I believe it to be the latter, based 
on a diagnostic where I inserted a bunch of underscores, each separated by a 
space, in a monospaced font and compared spacing to regular letters.


Anyone have any idea how to make underscores take a full character width of 
space in a monospaced font?




Steve,

I just tried two rows of 40 underscores (I'm not as ambitious as you), 
with a line in between consisting of 38 alphanumeric characters and a 
pipe on either side.  This was in a LyX-code environment.  The widths 
matched up pretty well; definitely no wholesale compression of the 
underscores. This holds for both DVI and PDF output (using all three 
methods of PDF generation).  I even futzed around with different 
monospace fonts, but could not screw up the spacing no matter what.


FWIW, I'm on Win XP using MiKTeX 2.6, in case it's something OS- or 
distro-specific.


/Paul



Re: Literal monofont underscores?

2008-03-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

Doh!

And here's why it worked for me and not you:  I typed in the 
underscores, and LyX cleverly escaped them as \_\_ (ad nauseum).  I'm 
guessing you pasted them in or imported them as text, and got just 
underscores, no escapes.

Re: Authors in preamble using \twoauthors

2008-03-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

Phillip Ferguson wrote:

Hey all,

 


Yet again I am having some issues with the spconf.sty.

 


This time it's the authors.

In spconf.sty the comments for \twoauthors are:

 


- use \twoauthors{author1}{address1}{author2}{address2}

% for two (or more) authors with two separate addresses

%- note: no need for \author nor \date

%- optional: can use \thanks{xx} within \name or \twoauthors,

% asterisk is not printed after name nor in footnote

%- optional: can use \sthanks{xx} after each name within \name or

% \twoauthors if different thanks for each author,

% footnote symbol will appear for each name and footnote

 

 


 And it defines \twoauthors:

 


[EMAIL PROTECTED]

   [EMAIL PROTECTED]@[EMAIL PROTECTED]

{\em #1} \\ \\

#2\relax

   \end{tabular}\hskip [EMAIL PROTECTED]@{}}

{\em #3} \\ \\

#4\relax

\end{tabular}}}

 


I have no idea of latex but I guess that this must set the layout and
parameters for only 2 author areas where only one address is allowed. My
problem is that I need 3 authors with three distinct addresses.

Can I modify this piece of code to spread 3 authors evenly across the page?
I suspect I may have to reduce the text size to accommodate all 3.

 


Does anyone know how to set this up correctly, or by doing this am I
violating the template?

 



Have you considered summarily dropping one of your co-authors?  :-)

The \twoauthors macro uses a pair of side-by-side tables to space out 
the authors and institutions, so hypothetically you could cobble 
together a \threeauthors macro along similar lines but with three 
tables.  You likely would have to reduce the font size, which might 
easily offend the conference people.  Before doing that, I would suggest 
contacting them and asking how they would recommend you handle it.

Not that I have seen. You may compress the streams, but not specifically 
reduce resolution of an image. However it is a command line and I could 
do it with a script working on the pdf output - take apart the streams, 
identify the images, and recombine them later, or some thing similar.


I will definitely try that.

Because PNG is a Pixel format. 

Maybe you can set the resolution somewhere in the Inkscape settings to
improve things a bit, but this does not solve the general problem.

They should not pixel at all in PDF as both Inkscapes' native SVG and
PDF are vector graphic formats.

However, if you include something into the graphic that already is pixy
(a PNG graph or a JPEG picture, say), then of course you cannot revert
this.

> What's the best way to put an Inkcape drawn drawing into LyX?

IMO, insertion as SVG (as produced by Inkcape and saved with Ctrl-S)
together with defining the file format and converters in Tools>Preferences:

File Formats: 
  
   SVG:  Extension svg
 Viewerinkview
 Editorinkscape
 x  Vector graphics format

Converters

   SVG -> PDF (pdflatex)
 inkscape $$i --export-pdf=$$o

I had some problems with »extra signs« in Hoefler Text that displayed 
well in Inkscape as well as in LyX (using XeTeX) but for some reason 
were not there any more when including the SVG in LyX. I am writing a 
work on islamic political thought, so there is a lot of Arabic 
transliteration I use. Many of the letters, such as in Madîna, ‘Â’ischa 
and so on (I have no idea, whether they will be displayed correctly on 
this list, in my mail client they do (Outlook users usually experience 
problems, e.g.)) simply were not displayed correctly any more. Anyway, 
when exporting the SVG in Inkscape to PDF, the fonts are automatically 
embedded (as far as I remember) and inserting the PDF in LyX is 
painless. My more simple graphics are still SVG directly in LyX, as it 
is more comfortable to only make changes in one file.

Anyway, I think that Inkscape really is the problem here, not LyX.
By the way, just for typographic reasons, you know of the typographic 
criticism of Arial, do you :)?

I asked my tutor if she could provide an svn server for me. A day
later someone of the support staff sent me an email with the
connection data for "my" svn server. Maybe you can ask the persons in
charge at your university as well...

I also have my own svn server on my server at home. It was really easy
to install it using Ubuntu Linux, there are a lot of tutorials online.
But without external backups the data security is not especially high.

There are of course a lot of svn services, free and charged ones, but
I wouldn't like to rely on most of the free services that offer space
for arbitrary projects. The big players, like sourceforge and google
code limit their offer to open source projects, so you probably won't
be able to use them for your papers.

Why cant i get the citations in the format i want?

2008-03-18 Thread Jon Bendtsen

Hi

I have some trouble getting my citations to look proper.

I use LyX 1.4.1 and BibDesk 1.3.14 on mac osx 10.5.2.

LyX only seem to show these fields, and in this order:
Author
Title
HowPublished
Month
Year
Note


Further more LyX seems to change the letters and remove some chars  
like , in some of the fields.


The author field removes ,
The Title field changes the letters, making them non capital letters.

Why cant LyX just write it like i do in BibDesk?

Apparently it does work for some chars, i tried another citation, and

LyX does not like putting an url like

booktitle =3D {Actas del V Congreso Internacional de Ciencias

}

Check the title. Hope this helps...

It basically, the bibliographic style you're using. Some styles  
use

all the
fields, some not. Also, you have to surround between curly

whatever
you want to appear as is, like names. I had that same problem and
that's
they way you solve it.


Did you mean to surround it with { } or [ ] ?
