 So are you doing this from outside LyX with calls to the lyxserver? If
 so, then use a for loop or something and call LFUN_DOWN repeatedly. Slow

Thanks for the advice.

you could e.g. use JabRef as a reference manager and say on a command line
jabref --aux doc.aux,cited.bib all.bib
after having exported your doc.lyx to doc.tex by using fileexportlatex
You would share cited.bib with your colleagues

 I would have thought many of you have gone through this problem before?

if you want to send it without bib-file at all, you might have to use the 
doc.tex and the doc.aux and doc.bbl file, but I am not sure. Anyway, its one

Typing some text in Lyx with capital letters

2009-07-16 Thread silvio grosso

Hello everybody,

I am working with Lyx 1.6.3 on Windows xp (sp3) and I have a question about 
punctuation.

In short, I spend most of my working time with softwares like Microsoft Word or 
OpenOffice Writer and I am wondering if is it possible, with Lyx, to have the 
first letter always in capital letters (namely capitalised) after a punctuation 
which requires that. 
At least in Italian, French, English after a punctuation such as ? ! . (period) 
etc, you very often need to have the first letter of the new sentence 
capitalised.

For instance, with OpenOffice Writer when I type: are you all right? Yes, I 
am the Y of yes is automatically changed in capital letter (that is, Yes 
instead of yes) .
On the contrary, with Lyx I have to change the first letter manually every 
time. Obviously, I know it is not a great deal :-)
Nevertheless, in my opinion,  when you have to type a lot of text every day 
this option is really useful because it saves you a lot of time (you don't have 
to press the button Shift to make the first letter capitalised).

To sum up, is there an option in Lyx to have the same behaviour about capital 
letters as Writer or Word?

Best regards,

Silvio

This is exactly what I do, except I even automatically delete all words less

I then delete the boring words out of the remaining concordance, which then 
serves as a reminder of what concepts need indexing. It's still by far the 
most distasteful aspect of writing a book.

 this would probably cause some problems for multiple-word entries

As you go through the concordance, you imagine what multi-word phrases might 
be included, and write them into the concordance. Stuff probably falls 
through the cracks, but I'm not willing to pay a professional indexer, so 
small flaws must be expected.

pavel,

  I don't think this will work. There are often variants of a word (e.g.,
'environment' and 'environmental') and we need to decide which, or both, to
index. Most importantly is trying to think of terms other than those we use
by which someone would try to find a reference in the text.

  This last point was driven home a couple of years ago when I wanted to
find the formula used to calculate Net Present Value (NPV) in my spreadsheet
application (XessSE). I looked in the built-in help and in the manual. No
luck. I called the vendor and the tech support guy also tried to find it
without success. Then it occurred to him to look under Formulas in the
index. Sure enough, that's where they were all listed, but they were not
listed individually. It did not occur to me to look for Formulas when I
wanted a specific one. Whomever wrote the index assumed everyone would look
in for the generic name rather than for the specific name. A perfect reason
for plenty of cross references (See ...). It is situations like this that
prevent automation of indexing.

Re: truncated sections

2009-07-16 Thread Beny Spira
Hi Marcelo

No, it's not the ToC that run through the margins and get truncated. It is
the list of subsubsections that is truncated. For example, I have a list of
12 subsubsections that does not fit entirely in one page, the last let's say
3 or 4 entries should have continued into the next page of the DVI or PDF
export, but they are missing.
Let me know if it is clear now or if you need any further information.

Thanks,

Beny





  Hi there
 
  I am writing an extended CV with heaps of subsections and
  subsubsections.
  The problem is that every time the amount of
  susbsubsections exceed a
  certain number the list of subsubsections run though the
  margins and is
  truncated when exported to DVI or PDF.
 
  Is this a bug? If not, how can it be avoided?
 
  Thanks
 
  Beny

  I don't understand. You say that Index or ToC run though the margins?

Do think about this. I have noticed the 'feature' in some editors, then
noticed that those programs also want to be intelligent and, for example
don't permit 'MHz' (they consider the only the first letter should be

* rgheck wrote, On 15/07/09 17:28:

 Here's what the docs say:
 
 LFUN_SERVER_GOTO_FILE_ROW
 
 * Action Sets the cursor position based on the row number of generated
 TeX file.
 
 * Notion This can be useful for DVI inverse-search or detection of the
 problematic line from LaTeX compilation. Note that before this function
 can be used export to LaTeX output must occur (in order to map the row
 numbers).
 
 * Syntax server-goto-file-row FILE[.ext] ROW_NUMBER
 
 * Params FILE: the filename. Environment variables are expaned in the
 path. In case this LFUN does not work make sure you are giving correct
 path to the file.If the file is located inside LyX temporary directory
 it will be mapped back into the appropriate opened buffer (e.g. for the
 case of generated .tex file). .ext: extensions will be automatically
 replaced by .lyx.
 
 Note that the row number is that of the LaTeX output file, NOT the LyX
 file on screen.


atm this isn't working as you say either (for me)...

I fired up a fresh invocation of Lyx, CTRL+N and typed:
now is the time
for all good men
to drink lemonade
at the party

CTRL+S to save as /tmp/file.lyx

I then did a dvi preview, In /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.J19856/lyx_tmpbuf0 I can
see the files that were generated. file.tex shows:

--8-8-8---
\batchmode
\makeatletter
\def\in...@path{{/tmp//}}
\makeatother
\documentclass[english]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}

\usepackage{babel}

\begin{document}
now is the time

for all good men

to drink lemonade

at the party
\end{document}
--8-8-8---

and in the command buffer I type (to jump to for all good men):

server-goto-file-row /tmp/file.lyx 14

but the cursor just goes back to line 1 again...

I even tried (for good luck):
server-goto-file-row /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.J19856/lyx_tmpbuf0/file.tex 14

but the cursor jumps to line 1 still.

I've tried lines 1-17 but still it won't do anything apart from jump
back to line 1.


I then switched to Article (noweb).

I note that a .nw is created as an intermediate file - is this the file
used for the line number mappings or is it the text file generated by
noweave? This question really concerns me because I am trying to map
from source files back to the lyx document, not from the dvi back to the
lyx document.

Multiple author affiliations

Often one needs to list several authors for a scientific paper, with 
more than one institutional affiliation.
I tried to do this with the AUTHOR text type and superscripts on both 
the authors names and their institutional affiliations, but Lyx gagged

How can I do that?

If someone is looking for a feature like this, maybe have it along the
lines of the inline spell checker and have squiggles marking potentially
bad words.

Re: Another Point to Consider in Your Writing

2009-07-16 Thread Steve Litt
On Thursday 16 July 2009 01:13:38 pm Rich Shepard wrote:
Now that we've flogged index creation until it's moribund, it's time to
 consider another factor in making your opus magnum welcomed by readers: the
 font size.

I'm re-reading a soft-cover book that I first read several years ago;
 it's a technical book with lots of mathematics so it doesn't scan like a
 novel. I found it difficult to read back then and only now, during my
 re-reading, am I aware of why it's so difficult. The body text is set in
 9pt type, and the in-line examples are set in 8pt type. It is very
 difficult to read -- even with my reading glasses -- and this makes it more
 difficult to follow because it takes conscious effort to just read the
 text. The book is self-published (the publishing company is named after the
 author's wife's initials) and the physical page size is also smaller than
 the standard 6-1/2x9-1/8 page.

Body text one point smaller than the standard 10pt (which I can read
 without glasses as long as environment is not too dark) makes a _huge_
 difference in readability and ease of comprehension. My advice is to
 _never_ set the body text smaller than 10pt (and always use a serif
 typeface because that tracks much more easily than do san-serif typefaces).

The other side of this type size issue is that everyone who uses
 Microsoft Word never changes the document default from Times-Roman 12pt; at
 least, no one whose documents I've seen has done so. That size, too, is
 difficult to read because it's 20% larger than we're used to reading in
 books and journals/magazines. Also, the Times fonts were developed for the
 London Times broadsheet newspaper with narrow columns. It's not the best or
 nicest looking typeface for use in most documents that are a single column
 on letter or A4 size paper. But, I suppose it's part of the Microsoft
 training to not consider making any changes to what comes out of the shrink
 wrapping.

I believe this topic is appropriate for the LyX mail list because we all
 know that documents typeset with TeX are more attractive and readable
 than are documents of processed words, even if most readers cannot tell you
 exactly why they feel that way. Paying attention to typeface and size just
 goes with the desire to produce outstanding looking output.

I think so too.

I use 12pt Century Schoolbook because Century Schoolbook appears very clear 
and readable to me. If the Book document class supported 14 point, I'd use 
that. I have no knowledge of my readers, so some of them may have very bad 
vision. My book Troubleshooting: Tools, Tips and Techniques was written in 
WordPerfect 5.1 back in 1990 using 14 point serif type, and I've been thanked 
more than once for providing such a big font.

I might be more sensitive to this than most. If my glasses are not absolutely 
clean, and if I'm not absolutely fresh and bright, I can't comfortably read 
anything smaller than 12pt.

not sure, I understood your problem. If you don't want to share the whole 
bib-file all.bib, but only the references cited in cited.bib, and your 
document is doc.lyx 
you could e.g. use JabRef as a reference manager and say on a command line
jabref --aux doc.aux,cited.bib all.bib
after having exported your doc.lyx to doc.tex by using fileexportlatex
You would share cited.bib with your colleagues

 I would have thought many of you have gone through this problem before?

if you want to send it without bib-file at all, you might have to use the 
doc.tex and the doc.aux and doc.bbl file, but I am not sure. Anyway, its one 
more file ...

  A Lyx plugin to do this would be extremely useful. Many publishers

Typing some text in Lyx with capital letters

2009-07-16 Thread silvio grosso

Hello everybody,

I am working with Lyx 1.6.3 on Windows xp (sp3) and I have a question about 
punctuation.

In short, I spend most of my working time with softwares like Microsoft Word or 
OpenOffice Writer and I am wondering if is it possible, with Lyx, to have the 
first letter always in capital letters (namely capitalised) after a punctuation 
which requires that. 
At least in Italian, French, English after a punctuation such as ? ! . (period) 
etc, you very often need to have the first letter of the new sentence 
capitalised.

For instance, with OpenOffice Writer when I type: are you all right? Yes, I 
am the Y of yes is automatically changed in capital letter (that is, Yes 
instead of yes) .
On the contrary, with Lyx I have to change the first letter manually every 
time. Obviously, I know it is not a great deal :-)
Nevertheless, in my opinion,  when you have to type a lot of text every day 
this option is really useful because it saves you a lot of time (you don't have 
to press the button Shift to make the first letter capitalised).

To sum up, is there an option in Lyx to have the same behaviour about capital 
letters as Writer or Word?

Best regards,

Silvio

I then delete the boring words out of the remaining concordance, which then

most distasteful aspect of writing a book.

 this would probably cause some problems for multiple-word entries

As you go through the concordance, you imagine what multi-word phrases might 
be included, and write them into the concordance. Stuff probably falls 
through the cracks, but I'm not willing to pay a professional indexer, so 
small flaws must be expected.

pavel,

  I don't think this will work. There are often variants of a word (e.g.,
'environment' and 'environmental') and we need to decide which, or both, to
index. Most importantly is trying to think of terms other than those we use
by which someone would try to find a reference in the text.

  This last point was driven home a couple of years ago when I wanted to
find the formula used to calculate Net Present Value (NPV) in my spreadsheet
application (XessSE). I looked in the built-in help and in the manual. No
luck. I called the vendor and the tech support guy also tried to find it
without success. Then it occurred to him to look under Formulas in the
index. Sure enough, that's where they were all listed, but they were not
listed individually. It did not occur to me to look for Formulas when I
wanted a specific one. Whomever wrote the index assumed everyone would look
in for the generic name rather than for the specific name. A perfect reason
for plenty of cross references (See ...). It is situations like this that
prevent automation of indexing.

3 or 4 entries should have continued into the next page of the DVI or PDF

Let me know if it is clear now or if you need any further information.

Do think about this. I have noticed the 'feature' in some editors, then
noticed that those programs also want to be intelligent and, for example
don't permit 'MHz' (they consider the only the first letter should be
capitalized). Then, to solve this, they have an exception table where you
can put those.

I ended up losing more time administering the exceptions than what I

but the cursor just goes back to line 1 again...

I even tried (for good luck):
server-goto-file-row /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.J19856/lyx_tmpbuf0/file.tex 14

but the cursor jumps to line 1 still.

I've tried lines 1-17 but still it won't do anything apart from jump
back to line 1.


I then switched to Article (noweb).

I note that a .nw is created as an intermediate file - is this the file
used for the line number mappings or is it the text file generated by
noweave? This question really concerns me because I am trying to map
from source files back to the lyx document, not from the dvi back to the
lyx document.

 Do think about this. I have noticed the 'feature' in some

Multiple author affiliations

2009-07-16 Thread E. Kaplan
Often one needs to list several authors for a scientific paper, with 
more than one institutional affiliation.
I tried to do this with the AUTHOR text type and superscripts on both 
the authors names and their institutional affiliations, but Lyx gagged 
on it.

How can I do that?

I concur, I usually end up turning OFF auto-correct.
If someone is looking for a feature like this, maybe have it along the

bad words.

Re: Another Point to Consider in Your Writing

2009-07-16 Thread Steve Litt
On Thursday 16 July 2009 01:13:38 pm Rich Shepard wrote:
Now that we've flogged index creation until it's moribund, it's time to
 consider another factor in making your opus magnum welcomed by readers: the
 font size.

I'm re-reading a soft-cover book that I first read several years ago;
 it's a technical book with lots of mathematics so it doesn't scan like a
 novel. I found it difficult to read back then and only now, during my
 re-reading, am I aware of why it's so difficult. The body text is set in
 9pt type, and the in-line examples are set in 8pt type. It is very
 difficult to read -- even with my reading glasses -- and this makes it more
 difficult to follow because it takes conscious effort to just read the
 text. The book is self-published (the publishing company is named after the
 author's wife's initials) and the physical page size is also smaller than
 the standard 6-1/2x9-1/8 page.

Body text one point smaller than the standard 10pt (which I can read
 without glasses as long as environment is not too dark) makes a _huge_
 difference in readability and ease of comprehension. My advice is to
 _never_ set the body text smaller than 10pt (and always use a serif
 typeface because that tracks much more easily than do san-serif typefaces).

The other side of this type size issue is that everyone who uses
 Microsoft Word never changes the document default from Times-Roman 12pt; at
 least, no one whose documents I've seen has done so. That size, too, is
 difficult to read because it's 20% larger than we're used to reading in
 books and journals/magazines. Also, the Times fonts were developed for the
 London Times broadsheet newspaper with narrow columns. It's not the best or
 nicest looking typeface for use in most documents that are a single column
 on letter or A4 size paper. But, I suppose it's part of the Microsoft
 training to not consider making any changes to what comes out of the shrink
 wrapping.

I believe this topic is appropriate for the LyX mail list because we all
 know that documents typeset with TeX are more attractive and readable
 than are documents of processed words, even if most readers cannot tell you
 exactly why they feel that way. Paying attention to typeface and size just
 goes with the desire to produce outstanding looking output.

I think so too.

I use 12pt Century Schoolbook because Century Schoolbook appears very clear 
and readable to me. If the Book document class supported 14 point, I'd use 
that. I have no knowledge of my readers, so some of them may have very bad 
vision. My book Troubleshooting: Tools, Tips and Techniques was written in 
WordPerfect 5.1 back in 1990 using 14 point serif type, and I've been thanked 
more than once for providing such a big font.

I might be more sensitive to this than most. If my glasses are not absolutely 
clean, and if I'm not absolutely fresh and bright, I can't comfortably read 
anything smaller than 12pt.

not sure, I understood your problem. If you don't want to share the whole 
bib-file all.bib, but only the references cited in cited.bib, and your 
document is doc.lyx 
you could e.g. use JabRef as a reference manager and say on a command line
jabref --aux doc.aux,cited.bib all.bib
after having exported your doc.lyx to doc.tex by using file>export>latex
You would share cited.bib with your colleagues

if you want to send it without bib-file at all, you might have to use the

Typing some text in Lyx with capital letters

2009-07-16 Thread silvio grosso

Hello everybody,

I am working with Lyx 1.6.3 on Windows xp (sp3) and I have a question about 
punctuation.

In short, I spend most of my working time with softwares like Microsoft Word or 
OpenOffice Writer and I am wondering if is it possible, with Lyx, to have the 
first letter always in capital letters (namely capitalised) after a punctuation 
which "requires" that. 
At least in Italian, French, English after a punctuation such as ? ! . (period) 
etc, you very often need to have the first letter of the new sentence 
capitalised.

For instance, with OpenOffice Writer when I type: "are you all right? Yes, I 
am" the Y of yes is automatically changed in capital letter (that is, Yes 
instead of yes) .
On the contrary, with Lyx I have to change the first letter manually every 
time. Obviously, I know it is not a great deal :-)
Nevertheless, in my opinion,  when you have to type a lot of text every day 
this option is really useful because it saves you a lot of time (you don't have 
to press the button Shift to make the first letter capitalised).

To sum up, is there an option in Lyx to have the same behaviour about capital 
letters as Writer or Word?

Best regards,

Silvio

As saved on disk, as this is what gcc is complaining about (I've been
using notangle directly on the lyx file).

I'm resigned that it is impossible and wont easily be possible.

This is exactly what I do, except I even automatically delete all words less 
than 4 letters.

I then delete the boring words out of the remaining concordance, which then 
serves as a reminder of what concepts need indexing. It's still by far the 
most distasteful aspect of writing a book.

> this would probably cause some problems for multiple-word entries

As you go through the concordance, you imagine what multi-word phrases might 
be included, and write them into the concordance. Stuff probably falls 
through the cracks, but I'm not willing to pay a professional indexer, so 
small flaws must be expected.

pavel,

  I don't think this will work. There are often variants of a word (e.g.,
'environment' and 'environmental') and we need to decide which, or both, to
index. Most importantly is trying to think of terms other than those we use
by which someone would try to find a reference in the text.

  This last point was driven home a couple of years ago when I wanted to
find the formula used to calculate Net Present Value (NPV) in my spreadsheet
application (XessSE). I looked in the built-in help and in the manual. No
luck. I called the vendor and the tech support guy also tried to find it
without success. Then it occurred to him to look under "Formulas" in the
index. Sure enough, that's where they were all listed, but they were not
listed individually. It did not occur to me to look for "Formulas" when I
wanted a specific one. Whomever wrote the index assumed everyone would look
in for the generic name rather than for the specific name. A perfect reason
for plenty of cross references ("See ..."). It is situations like this that
prevent automation of indexing.

I think not.
However, you're right, a auto-correction tool should be implemented,

DOuble capitals and similar mistakes.
 I think they're working in it with the

Re: truncated sections

Hi Marcelo

No, it's not the ToC that run through the margins and get truncated. It is
the list of subsubsections that is truncated. For example, I have a list of
12 subsubsections that does not fit entirely in one page, the last let's say
3 or 4 entries should have continued into the next page of the DVI or PDF
export, but they are missing.
Let me know if it is clear now or if you need any further information.

Do think about this. I have noticed the 'feature' in some editors, then
noticed that those programs also want to be intelligent and, for example
don't permit 'MHz' (they consider the only the first letter should be
capitalized). Then, to solve this, they have an exception table where you
can put those.

I ended up losing more time administering the exceptions than what I
could have ever gained by the capitalize-checking feature.

atm this isn't working as you say either (for me)...

I fired up a fresh invocation of Lyx, CTRL+N and typed:
now is the time
for all good men
to drink lemonade
at the party

CTRL+S to save as /tmp/file.lyx

I then did a dvi preview, In /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.J19856/lyx_tmpbuf0 I can
see the files that were generated. file.tex shows:

--8<-8<-8<---
\batchmode
\makeatletter
\def\in...@path{{/tmp//}}
\makeatother
\documentclass[english]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}

\usepackage{babel}

\begin{document}
now is the time

for all good men

to drink lemonade

at the party
\end{document}
--8<-8<-8<---

and in the command buffer I type (to jump to "for all good men"):

server-goto-file-row /tmp/file.lyx 14

but the cursor just goes back to line 1 again...

I even tried (for good luck):
server-goto-file-row /tmp/lyx_tmpdir.J19856/lyx_tmpbuf0/file.tex 14

but the cursor jumps to line 1 still.

I've tried lines 1-17 but still it won't do anything apart from jump
back to line 1.


I then switched to "Article (noweb)".

I note that a .nw is created as an intermediate file - is this the file
used for the line number mappings or is it the text file generated by
noweave? This question really concerns me because I am trying to map
from source files back to the lyx document, not from the dvi back to the
lyx document.

Multiple author affiliations

2009-07-16 Thread E. Kaplan
Often one needs to list several authors for a scientific paper, with 
more than one institutional affiliation.
I tried to do this with the AUTHOR text type and superscripts on both 
the authors names and their institutional affiliations, but Lyx gagged

How can I do that?

E. Kaplan:

  Rather than superscript placement/sizing, why not use footnotes? You can
have multiple authors listed and define a footnote for each one's employer.
LyX will happily digest this.

I concur, I usually end up turning OFF auto-correct.
If someone is looking for a feature like this, maybe have it along the

I think so too.

I use 12pt Century Schoolbook because Century Schoolbook appears very clear 
and readable to me. If the Book document class supported 14 point, I'd use 
that. I have no knowledge of my readers, so some of them may have very bad 
vision. My book "Troubleshooting: Tools, Tips and Techniques" was written in 
WordPerfect 5.1 back in 1990 using 14 point serif type, and I've been thanked 
more than once for providing such a big font.

I might be more sensitive to this than most. If my glasses are not absolutely 
clean, and if I'm not absolutely fresh and bright, I can't comfortably read 
anything smaller than 12pt.

use authblk.sty from preprint package. The authblk.sty can handle up to 6 
affiliation. I have use by putting this package in preamble like:

\usepackage[auth-lg]{authblk}
   \author[1]{name of author 1}
   \author[1,2]{name of author 2 with two affiliation}
   \affil[1]{affiliation 1}
   \affil[2]{affiliation 2}

etc, please read the documentation.
Btw, you don't need to put the author in editing area, because it already 
define in preamble.
