They will be identical for a simple document - yes.

A file exported to latex(plain) is supposed to work well
with the command 'latex', no matter how complicated the document is.

A file exported to latex(pdflatex) is supposed to work well with

'latex' and 'pdflatex are the same for plain text. They differ in
some special cases, for example in how they handle images.

'latex' understands images in .eps form, other images are converted
to .eps format first.

'pdflatex' also understand jpg and png, so such files are not converted
when using pdflatex.

Also, external material may be handled differently for 'latex' and
'pdflatex'. pdflatex can import pdf files, so external software is 
usually told to export a .pdf file when preparing material for a 
pdflatex run. A latex run will use postscript (.eps) instead.


So, you will see differences if your document contains images

File open bug persists in 1.6rc3 - Mac

2008-10-02 Thread James Sutherland

To reproduce this problem (on Mac):

  From Finder, right-click (ctrl-click) on a file and choose Open  
With and then open using 1.6rc3.  This opens the file, but the lyx  
window that it opens in has none of the toolbars available.  The  
regular LyX window is also opened, but is empty.


If I close the file and re-open it from the Open Recent menu, then  
it works fine.


I seem to remember discussion of this topic when rc1 was released.  It  
persists with rc2 and rc3.


Can any other Mac users verify this???

Hello James,

Yes, the bugs in the Mac version I reported some time ago (and added  
them to the bugtracker after the rc1or rc2 release) still persist.  
Hopefully this will be resolved in the final release. By the way even  
rc3 seems not to be very stable on my G4 (Lyx crashed while testing  
out if the bugs still remain). However, this is not the final  
candidate and I'll stick with 1.5.6 for my thesis.  When these little  
problems will be resolved in 1.6final, I'll switch immediately, as it  
has some very nice features.


The strange thing if I remember well the bug with the strange  
special menu wasn't there in the early betas before 1.6b4.


Johannes



Hello,

I've recognized some Problems in both Lyx 1.6b4 and rc1 on MacOS  
10.5 which I would like to report here. I don't know if these are  
bugs and/or platform specific; so here they are:


- When I start Lyx 1.6 and costumize the appearance settings via  
the Preferences... dialogue and then click on the Apply button  
or the Save button, a new item appears in the OSX menu bar  
labelled special with the menu items Preferences, About  
Lyx (both greyed out) and Quit Lyx. In the normal Lyx menu  
Reconfigure now appears two times and Preferences... isn't  
responsive any more. The only solution is to quit and restart Lyx  
via the special menu. Changes of preferences are lost then if you  
clicked Apply only.


- When I open a Lyx file by dragging it on the Lyx icon in the Dock  
the file is opened in an extra window without any toolbars and a  
second window opens with the toolbars in default arrangement (not  
the one costumized) but without any document in it. After this all  
costumized menu bar arrangements and prior window sizes are lost  
when restarting Lyx. The same thing happens when I open a Lyx file  
by doubleclicking on it.


But now some praise: The new autocompletion thing is really great!

Cheers,
Johannes

You shouldn't get four boxes, just the two. Then you enter the
formula you want in the first box. Use \#n for the nth argument
of the macro. (You won't see the \, but it's need to signal to
LyX that what follows isn't a literal #.) You can optionally

Navigate through a List of insets possible?

This will be possible in the upcoming new LyX 1.6.0.
Moreover in LyX 1.6.0 you can also use directly tabulators instead of
multiple spaces in listings. When you want to test out LyX 1.6.0RC3,

Open the outliner and select there List of listings. When it is not there, then this feature has 
been added after rc2.

No. That's why I proposed the text editor solution.
But you can alternatively add the option

breaklines=true

to the document class options in the document settings. This will then for LateX have the same 
effect. But then the option is set for _ALL_ listings in your document. The local setting of 
breaklines in each listings inset is then ignored by LaTeX.

No. That's why I proposed the text editor solution.

In case it's not clear, what Uwe means is this. LyX documents are just 
text documents, and you can open them in any text editor (notepad, under 
windows; emacs; vi; whatever). Once you do open it, you'll see that the 
listings insets all begin a certain way, and the options that apply to 
the insets will also be there for you to see. So you can do a simple 
search and replace in the text file itself to make this kind of change, 
in case it isn't possible to do it directly in LyX.


WARNING: Make sure you save a backup of the file before you do this!! It 
is very easy to make a mistake that will make it impossible for LyX to 
load the file. It may take a few tries before you get it right! But it 
can be a LOT easier than changing each thing one at a time.

To reproduce this problem (on Mac):

  From Finder, right-click (ctrl-click) on a file and choose Open  
With and then open using 1.6rc3.  This opens the file, but the lyx

Hello James,

Yes, the bugs in the Mac version I reported some time ago (and added  
them to the bugtracker after the rc1or rc2 release) still persist.  
Hopefully this will be resolved in the final release. By the way even  
rc3 seems not to be very stable on my G4 (Lyx crashed while testing  
out if the bugs still remain). However, this is not the final  
candidate and I'll stick with 1.5.6 for my thesis.  When these little  
problems will be resolved in 1.6final, I'll switch immediately, as it  
has some very nice features.


The strange thing if I remember well the bug with the strange  
special menu wasn't there in the early betas before 1.6b4.

Hello,

I've recognized some Problems in both Lyx 1.6b4 and rc1 on MacOS  
10.5 which I would like to report here. I don't know if these are  
bugs and/or platform specific; so here they are:


- When I start Lyx 1.6 and costumize the appearance settings via  
the Preferences... dialogue and then click on the Apply button  
or the Save button, a new item appears in the OSX menu bar  
labelled special with the menu items Preferences, About  
Lyx (both greyed out) and Quit Lyx. In the normal Lyx menu  
Reconfigure now appears two times and Preferences... isn't  
responsive any more. The only solution is to quit and restart Lyx  
via the special menu. Changes of preferences are lost then if you  
clicked Apply only.


- When I open a Lyx file by dragging it on the Lyx icon in the Dock  
the file is opened in an extra window without any toolbars and a  
second window opens with the toolbars in default arrangement (not  
the one costumized) but without any document in it. After this all  
costumized menu bar arrangements and prior window sizes are lost  
when restarting Lyx. The same thing happens when I open a Lyx file  
by doubleclicking on it.


But now some praise: The new autocompletion thing is really great!

Cheers,
Johannes

 Maybe we should start with a simple case. Do this. Exactly.

 Now enter a new line, type Ctrl-M to get a math formula, and type: \test

 Now you can enter an argument in the argument box. Type: \alpha, then a

You shouldn't get four boxes, just the two. Then you enter the
formula you want in the first box. Use \#n for the nth argument
of the macro. (You won't see the \, but it's need to signal to
LyX that what follows isn't a literal #.) You can optionally
enter something else to be displayed in LyX in the second box, if

Navigate through a List of insets possible?

1. Is it possible to navigate in a List of Program Listings (or other
insets)?

2. In addition, is it possible to loop over all Program Listings and
set for them common Settings? (I have so many PL's for which I would

This will be possible in the upcoming new LyX 1.6.0.
Moreover in LyX 1.6.0 you can also use directly tabulators instead of
multiple spaces in listings. When you want to test out LyX 1.6.0RC3,
you find a Windows-installer here:

Open the outliner and select there List of listings. When it is not there, then this feature has 
been added after rc2.

No. That's why I proposed the text editor solution.
But you can alternatively add the option

breaklines=true

to the document class options in the document settings. This will then for LateX have the same 
effect. But then the option is set for _ALL_ listings in your document. The local setting of 
breaklines in each listings inset is then ignored by LaTeX.

No. That's why I proposed the text editor solution.

In case it's not clear, what Uwe means is this. LyX documents are just 
text documents, and you can open them in any text editor (notepad, under 
windows; emacs; vi; whatever). Once you do open it, you'll see that the 
listings insets all begin a certain way, and the options that apply to 
the insets will also be there for you to see. So you can do a simple 
search and replace in the text file itself to make this kind of change, 
in case it isn't possible to do it directly in LyX.


WARNING: Make sure you save a backup of the file before you do this!! It 
is very easy to make a mistake that will make it impossible for LyX to 
load the file. It may take a few tries before you get it right! But it 
can be a LOT easier than changing each thing one at a time.

Using a file compare tool (Total Commander), I realize that the two

They will be identical for a simple document - yes.

A file exported to latex(plain) is supposed to work well
with the command 'latex', no matter how complicated the document is.

A file exported to latex(pdflatex) is supposed to work well with
the command 'pdflatex'.

'latex' and 'pdflatex are the same for plain text. They differ in
some special cases, for example in how they handle images.

'latex' understands images in .eps form, other images are converted
to .eps format first.

'pdflatex' also understand jpg and png, so such files are not converted
when using pdflatex.

Also, "external material" may be handled differently for 'latex' and
'pdflatex'. pdflatex can import pdf files, so external software is 
usually told to export a .pdf file when preparing material for a 
pdflatex run. A latex run will use postscript (.eps) instead.


So, you will see differences if your document contains images
or stuff like lilypond sheet music.  There may be some other cases as well.

You don't need to generate a preferences file manually. Try to delete yours, then restart LyX, open 
the preferences dialog, click there OK after a change, finally restart LyX again. When this doesn't 
solve the problem, then you might suffer from the bug that LyX currently cannot handle paths with 
non-ASCII and multibyte characters. We are working on both problems to get it to work for the next 
release candidate.

ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/pre/LyX-1.6.0rc3-Mac-Universal.dmg

LyX 1.6rc3 is not a stable release! This means it is good for
testing, but expect inconsistencies, regressions, and bugs. This preview
release is built for interested LyX users who want to test the new
features of LyX. We advise to backup your files and not to use this
version for anything else but testing.

Please report bugs to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

1. My temporary folder is "s:\temp", and lyx is installed in
"C:\Programme\LyX16", and the lyx file I want to export is under "c:\"
for test, so I don't think it is caused by the path name in my case;
2. Actually this problem appears when I reinstalled rc2 yesterday,
there is no such problem before that;
3. rc3 still has the problem in my computer.

Oh, well, in that case, you should upgrade to a more recent version. 
That's very old now.

Navigate through a "List of insets" possible?

2008-10-02 Thread Nikos Alexandris
1. Is it possible to navigate in a "List of Program Listings" (or other
insets)?

2. In addition, is it possible to loop over all "Program Listings" and
set for them common "Settings"? (I have so many PL's for which I would
like to set "Break long lines" that it seems like never ending to do it
for each inset separately!)

Thank you,
Nikos

This will be possible in the upcoming new LyX 1.6.0.
Moreover in LyX 1.6.0 you can also use directly tabulators instead of
multiple spaces in listings. When you want to test out LyX 1.6.0RC3,
you find a Windows-installer here:

The best is here to open your LyX file with a text editor and do the change 
there.

I already use LyX 1.6.0rc2 under Ubuntu Hardy Heron :-) Yet, I can't
seem to find this function. Could you point-out were is that?

Hmmm? I might have not been clear in my question: For the Program
Listing inset one can set (in the Settings dialog) the option "Broke
long lines". I would like to know if it is possible to activate this
option in one step for all Program Listing insets in one document.

Open the outliner and select there "List of listings". When it is not there, then this feature has 
been added after rc2.

No. That's why I proposed the text editor solution.
But you can alternatively add the option

breaklines=true

to the document class options in the document settings. This will then for LateX have the same 
effect. But then the option is set for _ALL_ listings in your document. The local setting of 
breaklines in each listings inset is then ignored by LaTeX.

In case it's not clear, what Uwe means is this. LyX documents are just 
text documents, and you can open them in any text editor (notepad, under 
windows; emacs; vi; whatever). Once you do open it, you'll see that the 
listings insets all begin a certain way, and the options that apply to 
the insets will also be there for you to see. So you can do a simple 
search and replace in the text file itself to make this kind of change, 
in case it isn't possible to do it directly in LyX.


WARNING: Make sure you save a backup of the file before you do this!! It 
is very easy to make a mistake that will make it impossible for LyX to 
load the file. It may take a few tries before you get it right! But it 
can be a LOT easier than changing each thing one at a time.

This is to thank you . It finally worked even in Lyx 1.4.3 installed on a
linux system . It helped to know that one needs to do alt+X to get the
buffer .
