If I remember right, you should be able to convert LyX 1.5 format to LyX 1.4
with the lyx2lyx script of LyX 1.5.

I remember that I once could enable an old lyx version to read in newer
lyx files by just replacing the lyx2lyx (and supporting) scripts.

floats inserted in a beamer presentation does not show the label counter

2008-04-21 Thread Oscar Lopez
Dear Lyxers

When I insert a Float Figure in a beamer presentation with a caption the label
counter it does not show at the pdf output. However, if i insert a reference to
the figure label this reference is correctly displayed at the pdf output. Is
this expected? Is there any way to include a numbered float in a beamer
presentation? Any possible workaround?

I know that it could be a little bit strange to use floats in a presentation.
However, I am working in a somehow kind of a mixture between article and
presentation project.

Thank you very much for all your help

Did you first run LyX before you installed TeX? If so, you'll need to run
LyX  Reconfigure. Then it should locate your TeX installation and recognize
all your document classes.

If not, try running reconfigure anyway. If that doesn't work, what version
of TeX are you using?

Creating Feynman diagrams using Feynmf and LyX

2008-04-21 Thread Real87

Hi

I'm trying to produce Feynman diagrams using LyX. I've already tried to use
the  http://wiki.lyx.org/Tips/FeynmanDiagrams feyn  package but it is too
restrictive. Therefore I'm trying to use a much more powerful package called 
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/feynmf/ feynmf .
However, there are some compatibility issues with LyX:

- When using the package feynmf (metafont based) there are some problems
when the latex code is converted into .dvi, .pdf or .ps: one needs to
compile twice, since in the first time a error message appears.
Additionally, when the source code is modified the font files are not
updated.

- When using the package feynmp (metapost based) there is no output at all
(the document is blank).

Here is a LyX test file:  http://www.nabble.com/file/p16810095/test.lyx
test.lyx .

BTW, I'm using LyX 1.5.4 with an updated MiKTeX 2.6.
Contact me for additional clarification.

Thank you for your attention.

Dear Charles your naive confidence that anyone can do this has emboldened me to
study script composition. There is indeed sed in os x and it seems to follow the
rules you are using, as I could verify easily with the simplest uses of it, the
ones that simply print the modified text to the screen.  And cp and the use of
obnoxiously so-called variables seems to be the same: the framing you use to
capture the modified text (which I don't quite understand yet) does make a
quasi-copy of zeta.tex called temp-zeta.tex. Things go well as long as the
find-and-replace-like actions I put into your framing are like s/me/you/g or
s/Athens/Jerusalem/g . But the use of / and \ and ' in tex and in the scripting
language, if that's what you call it - each wanting to use them both as its own
proper symbols and as 'escaped' or however you put it - inevitably leads to an
impenetrable salad of slashes, and the solution that works for you seems to lead
to misunderstanding here. I sort of follow the difficulty as long as I am
thinking of latex only.

So I am studying, but must give up for the night. This is hard! I will get back
to you if I fall into despair.  It's exam week, so I will have ample raw
materials when the .doc term papers hit my electronic mailbox late Friday
afternoon. Perhaps by then I will be able, with the application of a few
skillfully executed keystrokes, to convert the whole directory-full of them into

Text to path is off by default for normal text but it is always used for

Thus you have the options to:

Creating Feynman diagrams using Feynmf and LyX

2008-04-21 Thread Real87

Hi

I'm trying to produce Feynman diagrams using LyX. I've already tried to use
the  http://wiki.lyx.org/Tips/FeynmanDiagrams feyn  package but it is too
restrictive. Therefore I'm trying to use a much more powerful package called 
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/feynmf/ feynmf .
However, there are some compatibility issues with LyX:

- When using the package feynmf (metafont based) there are some problems
when the latex code is converted into .dvi, .pdf or .ps: one needs to
compile twice, since in the first time a error message appears.
Additionally, when the source code is modified the font files are not
updated.

- When using the package feynmp (metapost based) there is no output at all
(the document is blank).

Here is a LyX test file:  http://www.nabble.com/file/p16810095/test.lyx
test.lyx .

BTW, I'm using LyX 1.5.4 with an updated MiKTeX 2.6.
Contact me for additional clarification.

Thank you for your attention.

If I remember right, you should be able to convert LyX 1.5 format to LyX 1.4
with the lyx2lyx script of LyX 1.5.

I remember that I once could enable an old lyx version to read in "newer"
lyx files by just replacing the lyx2lyx (and supporting) scripts.

floats inserted in a beamer presentation does not show the label counter

2008-04-21 Thread Oscar Lopez
Dear Lyxers

When I insert a Float Figure in a beamer presentation with a caption the label
counter it does not show at the pdf output. However, if i insert a reference to
the figure label this reference is correctly displayed at the pdf output. Is
this expected? Is there any way to include a numbered float in a beamer
presentation? Any possible workaround?

I know that it could be a little bit strange to use floats in a presentation.
However, I am working in a somehow kind of a mixture between article and
presentation project.

Thank you very much for all your help

I paste my w2lclean script that I run on files converted by writer2latex
before importing them into LyX. It is geared for French but can easily be
adapted. It uses sed (a command line search that is standard on
Unix). I guess it will work on Mac OS/X. 

sh w2lclean Myconvertedfile.tex will create a temp-Myconvertedfile.tex that
you can then import into LyX.

For en-dash problem, you have to create a rule to convert space-space to
space--space

Did you first run LyX before you installed TeX? If so, you'll need to run

all your document classes.

If not, try running reconfigure anyway. If that doesn't work, what version
