How to automatically copy certain files into the tmp directory?

2009-08-19 Thread Rainer M Krug
Hi

I am using ERT boxes for inserting movies into BEAMER presentations
and a few other things as well. The problem is, that the files I need
in the temporary directory where the LaTeX file is compiled are not
automatically copied there and I have to copy them manually. Is there
a way of specifying them (e.g. in the preamble), so that they are
automatically copied along with the other files needed?

Thanks

Rainer

is there still anybody around using the old classic.ui we distribute?
its not maintained for a longer time, without new features and with bugs

I looked at it, but this is quite static and I have to maintain a
script in addition to the LyX file (unless I put all files in one
directory which is copied).

Is there a way to let LaTeX copy the files, i.e. that I can specify
them in the preamble?

i guess you can invent some kind of script which would be generic for all your
beamer use cases without need to maintain it for each single file.

That would be me...

[rant-mode]
Well I guess I'll say thanks for the warning... As it happens it's the
only ui I've ever intentionally used. I don't even really know why I
automatically selected it unless it's because every single time I've
seen any changes to any kind of user interface I've grown accustomed
to, I've always been disappointed because somehow it's always the
features I personally like to use that gets obsoleted...

This doesn't surprise me much any more. And I've long since given up
trying to figure out how they know which features I like so that the
can avoid obsoleting anything I don't happen to use... 

It's kind of like how do the Neilsons know when I've discovered a TV show
I like enough to watch on purpose. But they obviously do, as the
moment I start liking a show it's days are numbered...

sigh

[/rant-mode]

But seriously, I'm not sure what the difference is between the .ui files.
If your going to remove the clasic.ui could you tell me which remaining
.ui file results in the closest match to the actual user interface?

openright, openany?

2009-08-19 Thread Anthony Campbell

I'm using the book class. I'm sure that 'openright' used to be the
default and I used to put '\openany' in the preamble. Now 'openany'
seems to be the default and putting '\openright' in the preamble causes
an error.

Any information on this?

LyXWinInstaller for Windows 7

2009-08-19 Thread H. Peter Gumm

Hi Uwe,

last night I installed LyX+MikTex under Windows 7 (Enterprise Edition) 
using your Altinstaller Complete (i.e. LyX 1.6.3 plus MikTex) and to 
my great delight


   * Everything went without a problem.*

Just, towards the end, when LyX starts checking for installed packages 
- one ought to suggest to users to go out for dinner and not panic when 
Lyx is not done after dessert ;-)


Thanks for a  great  installer,

Greetings,
H.Peter

openright and openany are class options, not commands. So you do not have to

Not within LyX itself. The best way to do it is to run a script of some
sort on the .lyx file. E.g.:

sed -e 's/ that / \n\n\\emph on\nthat\n\\emph default\n /g'  t.lyx 
tt.lyx


is a dumb sed one-liner that almost does it.
This is acutally the usage scenario I'm trying to target with the 
Find LyX... (a.k.a., Advanced Search or Find Advanced) feature of 
LyX 2.0.0 from svn. There, you can enter arbitrarily complex LyX text 
inside the Replace... area, so that you can do (in principle) exactly 
what you are seeking for. It doesn't work perfectly fine, as of now, 
for example, in your case, after the replacement, you would get a set 
of \emph{word} instead of the word emphasized, but I think it won't 
be difficult to fix such issues.


Of course, for the advanced user, the text-based search/replace made 
directly on the .lyx file with a text editor, is the only thing you 
can do with the current official LyX releases, and it works (unless 
you make mistakes -- backup first).

i guess you can invent some kind of script which would be generic for all your
beamer use cases without need to maintain it for each single file.

Re: Obsoleting classic.ui

Well I guess I'll say thanks for the warning... As it happens it's the
only ui I've ever intentionally used. I don't even really know why I
automatically selected it unless it's because every single time I've
seen any changes to any kind of user interface I've grown accustomed
to, I've always been disappointed because somehow it's always the
features I personally like to use that gets obsoleted...

This doesn't surprise me much any more. And I've long since given up
trying to figure out how they know which features I like so that the
can avoid obsoleting anything I don't happen to use... 

It's kind of like how do the Neilsons know when I've discovered a TV show
I like enough to watch on purpose. But they obviously do, as the
moment I start liking a show it's days are numbered...



[/rant-mode]

But seriously, I'm not sure what the difference is between the .ui files.
If your going to remove the "clasic.ui" could you tell me which remaining
.ui file results in the closest match to the actual user interface?

openright, openany?

2009-08-19 Thread Anthony Campbell

I'm using the book class. I'm sure that 'openright' used to be the
default and I used to put '\openany' in the preamble. Now 'openany'
seems to be the default and putting '\openright' in the preamble causes
an error.

Any information on this?

Anthony

LyXWinInstaller for Windows 7

2009-08-19 Thread H. Peter Gumm

Hi Uwe,

last night I installed LyX+MikTex under Windows 7 (Enterprise Edition) 
using your "Altinstaller Complete" (i.e. LyX 1.6.3 plus MikTex) and to 
my great delight


   * Everything went without a problem.*

Just, towards the end, when LyX starts "checking for installed packages" 
- one ought to suggest to users to go out for dinner and not panic when 
Lyx is not done after dessert ;-)


Thanks for a  great  installer,

Greetings,
H.Peter

This is a LaTeX issue, obviously. But it seems odd that they would

openright and openany are class options, not commands. So you do not have to 
put them in the preamble, but to Document->Class->Options.

LyX beamer with e.g. circles on top of text or images?

2009-08-19 Thread seb123

Dear All,

In a LyX "beamer" presentation, I would like to draw circles, rectangles,
arrows on top of text or images.

How to do that? Do you guys happen to have LyX templates that can do that?

Thank you,
Sebastian

Re: Find All and Emphasize

2009-08-19 Thread Tommaso Cucinotta

Hi all,

I'd like to mention that, with the patch I committed right now on the 
SVN, the current version of LyX from trunk implements correctly this 
kind of feature, i.e., you can search for a plain word and replace it 
with its emphasized or boldface version, or search for some text (i.e., 
X1) and replace it with a math symbol ($X_1$), or you can search for 
some maths (i.e., $X^1$) and replace it with some rework of it (i.e., 
$Y_1$), etc.. I know there are many use-cases, and I hope somebody helps 
in identifying the most important ones and/or possible issues.

 Tommaso

Not within LyX itself. The best way to do it is to run a script of some
sort on the .lyx file. E.g.:

sed -e 's/ that / \n\n\\emph on\nthat\n\\emph default\n /g' < t.lyx 
>tt.lyx


is a dumb sed one-liner that almost does it.
This is acutally the usage scenario I'm trying to target with the 
"Find LyX..." (a.k.a., Advanced Search or Find Advanced) feature of 
LyX 2.0.0 from svn. There, you can enter arbitrarily complex LyX text 
inside the Replace... area, so that you can do (in principle) exactly 
what you are seeking for. It doesn't work perfectly fine, as of now, 
for example, in your case, after the replacement, you would get a set 
of "\emph{word}" instead of the word emphasized, but I think it won't 
be difficult to fix such issues.


Of course, for the advanced user, the text-based search/replace made 
directly on the .lyx file with a text editor, is the only thing you 
can do with the current official LyX releases, and it works (unless 
you make mistakes -- backup first).
