Package inputenc Error on imported Latex File

2008-04-25 Thread Jeff Sese

Hi,

I'm evaluating LyX and a beginner at LaTex. I have a LaTex file that  
I imported in LyX and tried to output a pdf from it but I'm getting a  
Package inputenc Error.


This is the error in the LaTeX log:

! Package inputenc Error: Keyboard character used is undefined
(inputenc)in inputencoding `latin9'.

See the inputenc package documentation for explanation.
Type  H return  for immediate help.
 ...

l.47

You need to provide a definition with \DeclareInputText
or \DeclareInputMath before using this key.

From my imported file, I can't find any command specifiying an  
encoding. Where does this error coming from, and what character is  
causing this error?


Thanks,
-- Jeff

Uwe Stöhr wrote:

Hello LyX testers,

I uploaded a new snapshot of the upcoming LyX version 1.6.0 for Windows: 
LyX 1.6.0alpha2.


NOTE: LyX 1.6 is in alpha state! That means it is not stable enough for 
a beta test release, so
expect crashes and inconsistencies. This preview release is build for 
interested LyX users who want

to check out the new features of LyX.

The new features of LyX are listed here:
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX16


Hi Uwe,

It works fine here (no crash yet). As for the previous versions (svn1 
and svn2), the installer detects that I have the dictionaries installed 
(English and French), but spell checking fails complaining:

  The Spellchecker could not be started
  No words list can be found for the language en_US.
I see the same message in the console when I start lyx from there.

The other things I noticed may be related to LyX and my installation, 
not the windows version in particular (although point 3 may be 
windows-related):


1- I am not sure I fully understand how the full screen mode options are 
supposed to work (I read the wiki page for Lyx 1.6, but  I am still not 
sure): As I understand it, the Toggle checkbox in the prefs 
(scrollbar, tabbar, toolbar) set them off when checked and on when 
unchecked (this looks an inverted logic to me BTW), and there is no 
automatic mode to have them appear when the mouse is on the edge of 
the screen. Right ?


2- I am not used to the instant preview mode (I do not really care about 
my equations looking nice in lyx, I just want them to show the formula). 
I tried but noticed that they get converted only after I enter them and 
quit them. For a document with plenty of equations, it means I have to 
go into each one manually. Is it supposed to be this way ? As I said, I 
never use it, so it is not a problem.


3- pdf conversion issue. I make my graphics with Inkscape 0.46 and 
export them as pdf (via Cairo). They have unconventional page size 
(fitting the graphic, as a bounding box) and are displayed correctly in 
adobe reader (v8),  foxit reader, and gsview.
However, the display in LyX kind of maps them onto a Letter or A4 
page. They are truncated when too wide and at the bottom of a by white 
empty page. What is more a problem is that when I view or export as 
dvi, postscript or pdf with dvipdfm and ps2pdf, the same problem is 
present. Only pdflatex does the right thing. I managed to fix view  
export by adding a converter from pdf to eps with the command line

gswin32c -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=epswrite -sOutputFile=$$o $$i
in the preferences, but the display in lyx is still wrong (I also 
disabled the converter cache to force lyx to regenerate the preview).
Related questions: should I set any environment variable to point to the 
ghostscript bin or lib directories ?


Thanks for the hard work you do. It's appreciated.

Best regards,

Olivier

XP pro sp2
Imagemagick 6.3.7.Q16

Seems to be working fine.  But the new method for opening pdf files is a 
bit of a pain when using Comodo Firewall with Defense+ malware filter. 
Every time I view a document as pdf a temporary executable is created, 
and every time the malware filter asks me permission for execution... 
and of course it's is no use giving it a permanent permission.

Re: No indent in LOF, LOT and tables

   I'm writing a thesis with scrartcl and want to clear the indent of

 setting the option listsleft

 Document-Settings-Document Class-Options.

Thanks, that works...

   And last but not least: The tables I inserted do also have 
   a little indent.
   Is it possible to change that?
 
 Setting listsleft modifies the lot also. Is this your question?

No, I didn't mean the LOT. For example, I put my Abbreviations into a Table
where they are defined. Although I made the lines invisible, the content of
the fields have a little indent because of the invisible Line. Is it
possible to erase that line completely? Or perhaps I can set the parindent
to -3pt for this table?

Downloading missing latex classes

2008-04-25 Thread Nicolás

Hi!

Today, after a long, long time without crashing, my copy of LyX 1.5.2 crashed. I decided then to upgrade to 1.5.4. Installation went 
ok, but when I launched LyX, a dialog message notifying about the need to download a missing latex class appeared. So far so good. The 
problem is that when I pressed the OK button, the dialog dissapeared and was not replaced by any other. I assumed that LyX was 
downloading the class in the background, but after a while I had to confirmed this by looking at the Task Manager (in Windows). I think 
that LyX should show a dialog where the user could see the progress of the downloading process.

Table caption label customization

2008-04-25 Thread D . Zorig
Hi all,

I've read KOMA Script manual.  But I couldn't figure out how to customize
table caption.
Now I understand table caption consists of following four parts.
1. Caption label
2. Caption number
3. Caption delimiter
4. Caption text

I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page
break then centered caption text.
\setcapindent*{xindent} produces page break and indentation.
\renewcommand*{\captionformat}{~} gets rid of delimiter which was colon.
\setcapwidth[justification]{width} is used to change caption text alignment.
But I think it changes figure and table and I have set width each time.

Please help me on this.
Thank you in advance.

Maybe someone else will have an answer on a way to alter figure and
table captions separately, but I'm unaware of any way to do this with
default koma-script options except as you're already doing by
specifying the options per table.

I would just use the caption package as it allows for separate options
for figures and tables. Read the caption package documentation for
koma-script related stuff. For me it turned out to be easier to just
use the default article/report/book classes and then use packages to
format things the way I wanted. Since, additional packages don't
conflict with the default classes.

Cheers,
/Bob

But it is described there. To change e.g. the caption label to bold, use this

\setkomafont{captionlabel}{\bfseries}


 I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
 have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page

When you only want to change the table caption I suggest to use the LateX-package caption instead. 
Not that koma's and captions' commands interfere, so better use only the koma commands or the

Hi Uwe,

It works fine here (no crash yet). As for the previous versions (svn1 
and svn2), the installer detects that I have the dictionaries installed 
(English and French), but spell checking fails complaining:

  The Spellchecker could not be started
  No words list can be found for the language en_US.
I see the same message in the console when I start lyx from there.

The other things I noticed may be related to LyX and my installation, 
not the windows version in particular (although point 3 may be 
windows-related):


1- I am not sure I fully understand how the full screen mode options are 
supposed to work (I read the wiki page for Lyx 1.6, but  I am still not 
sure): As I understand it, the Toggle checkbox in the prefs 
(scrollbar, tabbar, toolbar) set them off when checked and on when 
unchecked (this looks an inverted logic to me BTW), and there is no 
automatic mode to have them appear when the mouse is on the edge of 
the screen. Right ?


2- I am not used to the instant preview mode (I do not really care about 
my equations looking nice in lyx, I just want them to show the formula). 
I tried but noticed that they get converted only after I enter them and 
quit them. For a document with plenty of equations, it means I have to 
go into each one manually. Is it supposed to be this way ? As I said, I 
never use it, so it is not a problem.


3- pdf conversion issue. I make my graphics with Inkscape 0.46 and 
export them as pdf (via Cairo). They have unconventional page size 
(fitting the graphic, as a bounding box) and are displayed correctly in 
adobe reader (v8),  foxit reader, and gsview.
However, the display in LyX kind of maps them onto a Letter or A4 
page. They are truncated when too wide and at the bottom of a by white 
empty page. What is more a problem is that when I view or export as 
dvi, postscript or pdf with dvipdfm and ps2pdf, the same problem is 
present. Only pdflatex does the right thing. I managed to fix view  
export by adding a converter from pdf to eps with the command line

gswin32c -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=epswrite -sOutputFile=$$o $$i
in the preferences, but the display in lyx is still wrong (I also 
disabled the converter cache to force lyx to regenerate the preview).
Related questions: should I set any environment variable to point to the 
ghostscript bin or lib directories ?


Thanks for the hard work you do. It's appreciated.

Olivier

[announce] preview test release of LyX 1.6.0alpha2 for Windows

2008-04-25 Thread Juha Meriluoto
Seems to be working fine.  But the new method for opening pdf files is a 
bit of a pain when using Comodo Firewall with Defense+ malware filter. 
Every time I view a document as pdf a temporary executable is created, 
and every time the malware filter asks me permission for execution... 
and of course it's is no use giving it a permanent permission.

Re: No indent in LOF, LOT and tables

2008-04-25 Thread NicoWinger
   I'm writing a thesis with scrartcl and want to clear the indent of 
  LOF and  LOT. I already read, that this is possible by 
 setting the option listsleft
   of koma-script. But how can I set this option in LyX?
 
 Document-Settings-Document Class-Options.

Thanks, that works...

   And last but not least: The tables I inserted do also have 
   a little indent.
   Is it possible to change that?
 
 Setting listsleft modifies the lot also. Is this your question?

No, I didn't mean the LOT. For example, I put my Abbreviations into a Table
where they are defined. Although I made the lines invisible, the content of
the fields have a little indent because of the invisible Line. Is it
possible to erase that line completely? Or perhaps I can set the parindent
to -3pt for this table?

Downloading missing latex classes

2008-04-25 Thread Nicolás

Hi!

Today, after a long, long time without crashing, my copy of LyX 1.5.2 crashed. I decided then to upgrade to 1.5.4. Installation went 
ok, but when I launched LyX, a dialog message notifying about the need to download a missing latex class appeared. So far so good. The 
problem is that when I pressed the OK button, the dialog dissapeared and was not replaced by any other. I assumed that LyX was 
downloading the class in the background, but after a while I had to confirmed this by looking at the Task Manager (in Windows). I think 
that LyX should show a dialog where the user could see the progress of the downloading process.

Table caption label customization

2008-04-25 Thread D . Zorig
Hi all,

I've read KOMA Script manual.  But I couldn't figure out how to customize
table caption.
Now I understand table caption consists of following four parts.
1. Caption label
2. Caption number
3. Caption delimiter
4. Caption text

I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page
break then centered caption text.
\setcapindent*{xindent} produces page break and indentation.
\renewcommand*{\captionformat}{~} gets rid of delimiter which was colon.
\setcapwidth[justification]{width} is used to change caption text alignment.
But I think it changes figure and table and I have set width each time.

Please help me on this.
Thank you in advance.

Maybe someone else will have an answer on a way to alter figure and
table captions separately, but I'm unaware of any way to do this with
default koma-script options except as you're already doing by
specifying the options per table.

I would just use the caption package as it allows for separate options
for figures and tables. Read the caption package documentation for
koma-script related stuff. For me it turned out to be easier to just
use the default article/report/book classes and then use packages to
format things the way I wanted. Since, additional packages don't
conflict with the default classes.

Cheers,

But it is described there. To change e.g. the caption label to bold, use this

\setkomafont{captionlabel}{\bfseries}


 I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
 have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page

When you only want to change the table caption I suggest to use the LateX-package caption instead. 
Not that koma's and captions' commands interfere, so better use only the koma commands or the

See the inputenc package documentation for explanation.

You need to provide a definition with \DeclareInputText

From my imported file, I can't find any command specifiying an

It looks like the error is hidden in the preamble or a package or a floating

In such cases I usually:

1. look into Document>LaTeX Protocoll, as this is somewhat more verbose than

No, I didn't mean the LOT. For example, I put my Abbreviations into a Table

possible to erase that line completely? Or perhaps I can set the parindent

Good!

Prevent future occurrence. Create a shellscript or batch file to back up the 
file (to a different version) and run it every 10 minutes so that if you get 
knocked back, you only get knocked back 10 minutes.

I know you're done with this project, but do this for all your projects.

By the way, I have a system to use rsync to make incremental backups, taking

Downloading missing latex classes

2008-04-25 Thread Nicolás

Hi!

Today, after a long, long time without crashing, my copy of LyX 1.5.2 crashed. I decided then to upgrade to 1.5.4. Installation went 
ok, but when I launched LyX, a dialog message notifying about the need to download a missing latex class appeared. So far so good. The 
problem is that when I pressed the OK button, the dialog dissapeared and was not replaced by any other. I assumed that LyX was 
downloading the class in the background, but after a while I had to confirmed this by looking at the Task Manager (in Windows). I think 
that LyX should show a dialog where the user could see the progress of the downloading process.

Table caption label customization

2008-04-25 Thread D . Zorig
Hi all,

I've read KOMA Script manual.  But I couldn't figure out how to customize
table caption.
Now I understand table caption consists of following four parts.
1. Caption label
2. Caption number
3. Caption delimiter
4. Caption text

I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page
break then centered caption text.
\setcapindent*{xindent} produces page break and indentation.
\renewcommand*{\captionformat}{~} gets rid of delimiter which was colon.
\setcapwidth[justification]{width} is used to change caption text alignment.
But I think it changes figure and table and I have set width each time.

Please help me on this.
Thank you in advance.

Maybe you are not aware that LyX already autosaves your files? Look at 
the Preferences settings dialog; the default is to make a backup every 5 
minutes.

Why don't use a source control management (SCM) system instead?

Maybe someone else will have an answer on a way to alter figure and
table captions separately, but I'm unaware of any way to do this with
default koma-script options except as you're already doing by
specifying the options per table.

I would just use the caption package as it allows for separate options
for figures and tables. Read the caption package documentation for
koma-script related stuff. For me it turned out to be easier to just
use the default article/report/book classes and then use packages to
format things the way I wanted. Since, additional packages don't
conflict with the default classes.

Cheers,
/Bob

Here's something along the same lines:

Put it in a cron job and cease to worry. I've got dozens of *complete* 
backups going back years, and the whole business takes up only about 
three times the space of the original files.

My backups work for every app, and work in a way I know.

That's a good idea. I haven't yet because it's not a high priority, given that 
I have an excellent backup system.

Let me rephrase what I said -- find SOME way of backing up your file often 
during the day, whether it's something built into the app, source control, a 
incremental backup schedule, or just plain copies.

Maybe it is off topic, but would you mind expand a bit about this backup
script you have? It might give me some good ideas of how to create my
own, and I have just started to program it...

And one more question: do you have one (or more) of these books
available on the net, or otherwise free? I have never seen a full-length
book that was written with LyX, and I would like to see one in order to
get a feeling about LyX's abilities.

Thanks ahead,
Peleg.

But it is described there. To change e.g. the caption label to bold, use this 
command in the preamble:

\setkomafont{captionlabel}{\bfseries}


 I want to leave figure captions as they are and change table captions to
 have right aligned Caption label with number but without delimiter and page
 break then centered caption text.


When you only want to change the table caption I suggest to use the LateX-package "caption" instead. 
Not that koma's and captions' commands interfere, so better use only the koma commands or the 
caption ones.
