I also experience the lack of antialiasing though there seem to be some exceptions. I am afraid I will not be able to use the promising new 1.6 series if these problems remain unsolved. I am really afraid as my lecture notes, slides etc. are almost entirely written by LyX and I would not be

All of my books except one are in LyX 1.4.2. The latest book is LyX 1.5.3. I'm hoping to get a 64bit machine with 8GB of Ram, and use LyX 1.5.4. I know that once you open and save a LyX 1.4.2 doc in 1.5.4, you can never go back to 1.4.2. So my question is, do you think 1.5.4 will

An .eps figure is inserted into a figure float. This picture has a bounding box. When its sizes are obtained from the file (get from file), the bounding box is neglected and the full figure (the whole A4 page) is shown in LyX. This was a bug in ImageMagick. Update to ImageMagick 6.3.8-11 or

LyX is outputting PDF's which use raster fonts?

2008-05-14 Thread woodvorg
I was looking at properties of the PDF I'm outputting, and all the fonts are along the lines of CMBX12 (Embedded subset), or F16. When I zoom right in on text, it's clearly raster fonts. But I think I'm just using the default latex font (which I see in most latex pdfs). I've attached the layout

Oh, I see... They also wrote this line under that figure: "For ASYMPTOTE versions ≥ 1.14, you can simply call PDFLATEX directly" - but I have misunderstood it, probably; I thought it meant that in this specific case (version ≥ 1.14), I *don't* need to do that. Well, then... I am looking for a
