Hi!

I have test LyX+Maxima+Ubuntu and it works perfectly:

 There seems to be no documentation on the CAS link in the wiki documents...
 wouldn't it be a good idea to link directly from the features page to a

 Sometimes it can be difficult to find - or maybe it is absent?

 From the web I can see that CAS in Lyx apparently is not working too well -
 does anyone have an overview of this functionality in terms of how well it

Multicol package - right to left alignment?

2010-06-19 Thread Barak Sh
Hello,
I'm trying to use the multicol package in order to print a formula sheet
with 3 columns and a vertical line separating them. The document is in
Hebrew and should be aligned right to left.
When using the usual Two-column document setting in LyX, the columns are
aligned right to left as required. However, when using multicol, the columns
are aligned left to right.
Is there any way to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance,
Barak

If you add the code in the last block to your preamble it should work.

Document class article (more font sizes) not working in Hebrew documents?

2010-06-19 Thread Barak Sh
Hello all,

I've tried to change an article's document class to article (more
font sizes), in order to use a smaller base size for fonts (8 instead
of 10).
However, I could not export the article; I got a LaTeX error
\...@chapter undefined. This error appears even if I erase all
contents of the document, and only in Hebrew documents.
Any idea where this error could have come from, and how to solve it?

I would like to make the fonts smaller but still have larger fonts for
titles, how is that possible without changing the base font size (and
without painstakingly changing the individual font sizes of each title
and paragraph)?

Thanks,

Barak


Getting theorems in upright or italics font

2010-06-19 Thread Daniel CLEMENT
Hi,

I cannot quite control the font shape in theorems with the theorems.inc
module. I can have the Definitions upright with:

Style Definition
[...]
Font
  Shape   Up
EndFont

but it does not work for Theorem, Proposition and Remark (at least):
they remain in italics, regardless of this setting.

OTTH, I could just leave all these statements in italics, but I come
across another problem : when I enumerate within a theorem:

Theorem X: The following are equivalent:
 1. property one ;
 2. property two.

... the the properties come out upright, unlike the beginning of the
theorem.

(That could be a problem with the scope of the theorem: it did not occur
when I introduced (and closed) my theorems with ERT boxes, so I guess my
enumeration is no longer really within the theorem.)

I can think of several ugly workarounds, but I'd welcome a clean one...

TIA - regards,

You might want to try the chapterprecis text style available with Memoir

The theorem module uses the amsthm package.  If you check check section 4.3 of
the manual for ammsthm, you'll find the syntax for the \newtheoremstyle command.
 You will want to hack the include file to put code in the preamble creating new
theorem styles with names you supply (e.g., myThm) and then replace any
instances of \theoremstyle{plain} with \theoremstyle{myThm} (or whatever
modified style you want for that type of environment).
