Re: xetexCV and LyX

2010-05-19 Thread Liviu Andronic
Hello Rob
And thanks for sharing this here. I just tried out the class and
layout and bumped into two issues:
- I didn't didn't have Fontin installed on my system so the document
naturally didn't compile. However it refused to compile even after I
tried to specify a custom font in the preamble or chose one in the
list.
- after installing the Fontin fonts, the document still doesn't
compile throwing No \title given error.

 Dear LyX Users,

  About six months ago, I started a blog series about a custom document

  layout file for this class and explain how to use it from LyX.

  But then I started work on a book, got bogged down in things at work,
  and had a couple of family crises.  During each, the completion date for
  the layout file and the final blog post got pushed a little further into
  the future and eventually, it simply became defined as soon.

  Well, it turns out that soon apparently means about six months.
  Today, I finally got around to finishing/testing the layout file, and
  posted the usage instructions.  They can be found at:

  other topics that recently came up, including:

  * Using latex photo commands from a LyX doc (turns out that they should
  probably be used in the preamble)
  * How to automatically generate a Publications list using the \nocite
  command.

  If you download and use the class/layout, I would be extremely
  appreciative of any feedback; particularly if things don't work quite
  right.  I would like to include this class with aforementioned book, and
  I hate to release code with bugs.

 Hi,
  
 My company is looking into switching from MS Word to a less stressful

 and copy/paste them into a Word document.  This allows the students to 
 follow along with the printed text and use the inserted PowerPoint slides to 
 follow the presentation.  However, every time a slide is changed or deleted,

 I have only a very vague sense what you are trying to do, but I think this

 If so, then I would think the workflow could look like this. You create two 
 separate documents: a LyX document for the text, and a presentation document, 
 for which you could use OpenOffice Impress or LyX itself, via the Beamer 
 class, or you could stick with PowerPoint. You print the presentation 
 document as a PDF and then use something like pdftoppm to convert the pages 
 of the pdf to images. The images themselves can then be inserted into the LyX 
 document in the usual way. Since all of this is just running a bunch of 
 programs, it could all be automated, even, though you might have to check the 
 image names manually, as they could change if you'd added or removed pages.

It's even easier than that as LyX/Latex (\includegraphics) can directly embed a 
certain page of a PDF file as graphics. 

The general idea is to have the slides as external material that is *referenced 
from* the textbook document instead of *copied into* it, so that whenever a 
silde changes, it also changes in the textbook. Note: While I surely would like 
to convince you to use LyX, this should be possible with Word as well (at least 
it used to be possible ten years ago).

I don't know how much eLyXer can help you, but it is multiplatform: it
has been reported to work on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. In fact it
should work on any platform where Python 2.5 is available (0.98 does
not support Python 2.4 due to a bug, already solved for 0.99).

Some people have used eLyXer's core classes as a processing framework
for LyX files; maybe you could explore this path too. Although I don't
know anything right now about XWiki, I would be happy to assist in any
such efforts.

Multiple formatting questions with LyX 1.6.5 - book (Memoir)

2010-05-19 Thread Yannick Fournier
Dear LyX community,

First of all thank you for the day to day support you provide through this
mailing-list. I've been writing my thesis for the last 6 months with LyX
1.6.5 in *book (Memoir)*, and I saw a lot of interesting tips.

I have gathered here the questions that arose during my composition. My
apologizes if I've missed something in the FAQ.

a) Changing cross-references links of subsubsection to a nicer section:
Is there a command similar to the one for renaming figure captions (see
below), in order to have for example subsections 3.4.3.2 or section
3.4.3.2 instead of subsubsections 3.4.3.2 ?
\renewcommand{\f...@figure}{fig.~\thefigure}


b) Preventing Appendixes to insert blank pages and centered layout:
I'm inserting my appendix child documents with Input instead of Include
to avoid getting blank pages, but nevertheless the first appendix page has a
centered page number and is always an odd page.
Apart from using article in the document class options, is there a way to
avoid this?


c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


e) Smaller bibliography fonts:
How can I have my bibliography (external BibTek from JabRef) printed in
smaller fonts than the core of the document? For the information formatting
I'm using unsrt and Default (numerical) for citations.

Best regards and many thanks in advance. Feel free to split into multiple
emails if needed.

How are you getting the subsubsection... text? I just get numbers for 
references to subsubsections.



b) Preventing Appendixes to insert blank pages and centered layout:

to avoid getting blank pages, but nevertheless the first appendix page has a
centered page number and is always an odd page.

This is standard behavior for a book, since an appendix is really a 
chapter* and so starts on a new page. If it's just the odd page you 
don't want, then use openany as a class option.



c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?



Just go into the index inset and unbold it.


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


Again, what are you using to get these cross-references? If I do a 
formatted reference to a chapter, I always get caps. If you're using 
memoir's Cref command, etc, then see the memoir manual for what to do.



e) Smaller bibliography fonts:
How can I have my bibliography (external BibTek from JabRef) printed in
smaller fonts than the core of the document? For the information formatting

Don't know this one. I mean, you can do \small or something, but it 
can get reset.

Re: LyX does not insert an \\ when inserting a \Split\ environment

2010-05-19 Thread Uwe Stöhr

 For some reason, when I insert a Split environment in an equation, LyX
 does not insert the  into the LaTeX source and as a result

You can do this by yourself by adding a column (can be done via the math toolbar). See also the LyX 
Math manual sec. 18 as reference.

Attached is an example showing the split environment in action.

It seems that LyX 1.6.5 had a bug with the split environment that is fixed in LyX 1.6.6 
(http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6700).


 the equations are not aligned to the left. This is in contrast with the 
behavior
 for the  Array environment. Is this normal?

Yes, see sec. 18.2-18.6 for a description of the different AMS formula 
environments.

Multiple formatting questions with LyX 1.6.5 - book (Memoir)

2010-05-19 Thread Yannick Fournier
Dear LyX community,

First of all thank you for the day to day support you provide through this
mailing-list. I've been writing my thesis for the last 6 months with LyX
1.6.5 in *book (Memoir)*, and I saw a lot of interesting tips.

I have gathered here the questions that arose during my composition. My
apologizes if I've missed something in the FAQ.

a) Changing cross-references links of subsubsection to a nicer section:
Is there a command similar to the one for renaming figure captions (see
below), in order to have for example subsections 3.4.3.2 or section
3.4.3.2 instead of subsubsections 3.4.3.2 ?
\renewcommand{\f...@figure}{fig.~\thefigure}


b) Preventing Appendixes to insert blank pages and centered layout:
I'm inserting my appendix child documents with Input instead of Include
to avoid getting blank pages, but nevertheless the first appendix page has a
centered page number and is always an odd page.
Apart from using article in the document class options, is there a way to
avoid this?


c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


e) Smaller bibliography fonts:
How can I have my bibliography (external BibTek from JabRef) printed in
smaller fonts than the core of the document? For the information formatting
I'm using unsrt and Default (numerical) for citations.

Best regards and many thanks in advance. Feel free to split into multiple

This is standard behavior for a book, since an appendix is really a 
chapter* and so starts on a new page. If it's just the odd page you 
don't want, then use openany as a class option.



c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?



Just go into the index inset and unbold it.


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


Again, what are you using to get these cross-references? If I do a 
formatted reference to a chapter, I always get caps. If you're using 
memoir's Cref command, etc, then see the memoir manual for what to do.



e) Smaller bibliography fonts:

Re: LyX does not insert an \\ when inserting a \Split\ environment

2010-05-19 Thread Uwe Stöhr

 For some reason, when I insert a Split environment in an equation, LyX
 does not insert the  into the LaTeX source and as a result

You can do this by yourself by adding a column (can be done via the math toolbar). See also the LyX 
Math manual sec. 18 as reference.

Attached is an example showing the split environment in action.

It seems that LyX 1.6.5 had a bug with the split environment that is fixed in LyX 1.6.6 
(http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6700).


 the equations are not aligned to the left. This is in contrast with the 
behavior
 for the  Array environment. Is this normal?

Yes, see sec. 18.2-18.6 for a description of the different AMS formula 
environments.

Any possible way to have clickable table of contents when exporting to PDF?

- I didn't didn't have Fontin installed on my system so the document
naturally didn't compile. However it refused to compile even after I

- after installing the Fontin fonts, the document still doesn't
compile throwing "No \title given" error.

It's even easier than that as LyX/Latex (\includegraphics) can directly embed a 
certain page of a PDF file as graphics. 

The general idea is to have the slides as external material that is *referenced 
from* the textbook document instead of *copied into* it, so that whenever a 
silde changes, it also changes in the textbook. Note: While I surely would like 
to convince you to use LyX, this should be possible with Word as well (at least 
it used to be possible ten years ago).

Listings can do some pretty-printing for you. Bring up the settings for 
your listing, and set the language to "Python". This should get you nice 
syntax highlighting - in the output, not in the LyX editor.


The automatic higlighting don't differentiate between user typed stuff

The rules for syntax higlighting _can_ be adapted, but that is only

I get the point, but even though if in a first time XWiki is not capable

Re: LyX does not insert an \"&\" when inserting a \"Split\" environment

You can do this by yourself by adding a column (can be done via the math toolbar). See also the LyX 
Math manual sec. 18 as reference.

Attached is an example showing the split environment in action.

It seems that LyX 1.6.5 had a bug with the split environment that is fixed in LyX 1.6.6 
(http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6700).

Yes, see sec. 18.2-18.6 for a description of the different AMS formula 
environments.

Re: LyX / pdflatex / paper size

When choosing "Page Layout -> Paper format = a5" in LyX, is it to
expected that the paper size is still a4? This is the case when I use
the pdfpatex , but not with ps or dvi output.

Including \usepackage{geometry} in the preamble fixes the problem.


This bug has now be fixed for LyX 1.6.7 (the fix came too late for LyX 1.6.6).

Any possible way to have clickable table of contents when exporting to PDF?

2010-05-19 Thread Francois Berenger

Hello,

When I export my document to PDF, the TOC is not composed
of links to corresponding parts (although URLs are clickable
inside my document).

What can I do to make TOC clickable?

It would be a killer feature in order to show
my colleagues we can get rid of MS Word and produce
documents in format that is easy to version control
(and so to work on at several people at the same time,
like source code). :-)

Thanks a lot for any help,
Francois.

PS:
This question was asked long time ago on this ML,
but I cannot find answers to it.
