 Hello,
 
 I'm tried this on my Mac, too.
 I downloaded the german aspell dictionary, unzipped it, and put in into the

 A first test ended up in the same error you reported.
 
 Then I looked into the dictionary folder and saw that there is no

 Then I realized what the problem is:
 I didn't compile the aspell dictionary! (the README-file tells me I have to 
 do this ;-))
 CocoAspell does this automatically if you open its preference pane 
 (Systemeinstellungen): If there's a new dict in the path, compiling starts.
 After compiling be sure that you have checked at least German in the 
 CocoAspell preference pane.
 
 So maybe you have forgotten this compilation step, too?

File window does not open

2010-07-18 Thread F S
Hi,

I just installed Lyx on Win 7, 64 Bit, German. Lyx (1.6.7) is also in
German.

there is one big problem with Lyx that I can't work around. Any time you
click on something, which should open a file window (e.g., open a file, new
file from template, save as, open a skin file, ...) LYX goes to background
(change of color, like it should) but comes back on top after 1/10th of a
second without showing the file window. In other words, I never see the file
window. 

Also changing the GUI-language doesn't have any effect (I prefer German, but
thought that that might be related to the problem). 

Does anybody have an idea what the problem might be? I tried reinstalling
and rebooting so far. Also removing the write protection attributes from all
files in the Lyx16-Folder didn't have any effect.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Florian

Option 1: Do nothing with the images.  Insert custom vertical space

Option 2: Do nothing with the label.  Embed the images in boxes (either

settings dialog for each box, leave the Box value at Top, but change the 
Content value to Bottom (although Middle seems to work just as well).


Option 2 requires less tweaking, but the label text aligns with vertical

It's odd then that it's different on the Mac. Even more reason --  
uniformity of graphic identity -- that the Mac icon should be just  
the letters LyX.

I have the file MinionPro.sty installed in C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX

In my updmap.cfg file there exists one line with,

Map MinionPro.map

Yes, after the installation of all files I ran texhash and updmap in a DOS 
commands window.

And, finally, LyX recognizes the MinionPro.sty file because this file appears 
in the list of .sty files in ToolsTeX information.

My problem is that when I try to view a simple document with my Yap DVI viewer 
that appears an error message like this:

LaTeX error: File `MinionPro.sty´ not found

In the preamble of the document, article class, that exists one line with:

Does 'kpsewhich MinionPro.sty' (at a DOS prompt) find it?  And have you 
double-checked the spelling in the preamble just to be sure you didn't 
accidentally misspell MinionPro?  (You might try retyping it in case 
some unprintable character snuck in.)

It's odd then that it's different on the Mac. Even more reason --  
uniformity of graphic identity -- that the Mac icon should be just  
the letters LyX.

MinionPro

2010-07-18 Thread Yago
I have the file MinionPro.sty installed in C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX 
2.8\tex\latex\MinionPro, joint with all .fd files and other .sty files 
associated with this package. Also there are this files in my texmf tree:

.enc files in C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX 2.8\dvips\MinionPro
.map files in C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX 2.8\fonts\map\dvips\MinionPro

.vf files in C:\Archivos de programa\MiKTeX 2.8\fonts\vf\adobe\MinionPro

In my updmap.cfg file there exists one line with,

Map MinionPro.map

Yes, after the installation of all files I ran texhash and updmap in a DOS 
commands window.

And, finally, LyX recognizes the MinionPro.sty file because this file appears 
in the list of .sty files in ToolsTeX information.

My problem is that when I try to view a simple document with my Yap DVI viewer 
that appears an error message like this:

LaTeX error: File `MinionPro.sty´ not found
*** (cannot \read from terminal in nonstop modes)

In the preamble of the document, article class, that exists one line with:

\usepackage{MinionPro}

So, I don't understand nothing. Any help, please?

Does 'kpsewhich MinionPro.sty' (at a DOS prompt) find it?  And have you 
double-checked the spelling in the preamble just to be sure you didn't 
accidentally misspell MinionPro?  (You might try retyping it in case 
some unprintable character snuck in.)

Apparently we need quotes around the whole thing:

File window does not open

2010-07-18 Thread F S
Hi,

I just installed Lyx on Win 7, 64 Bit, German. Lyx (1.6.7) is also in
German.

there is one big problem with Lyx that I can't work around. Any time you
click on something, which should open a file window (e.g., open a file, new
file from template, save as, open a skin file, ...) LYX goes to background
(change of color, like it should) but comes back on top after 1/10th of a
second without showing the file window. In other words, I never see the file
window. 

Also changing the GUI-language doesn't have any effect (I prefer German, but
thought that that might be related to the problem). 

Does anybody have an idea what the problem might be? I tried reinstalling
and rebooting so far. Also removing the write protection attributes from all
files in the Lyx16-Folder didn't have any effect.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Florian



Re: Vertical align text to top in a row with images

2010-07-18 Thread Paul A. Rubin

On 7/15/2010 6:28 AM, Falk Sticken wrote:



I have a table with images in a row. First column has paragraph cells
with row descriptions. Unfortunately I can not figure out how to align
the text vertical such that it is at the top of the row. I tried
diffrent settings and also used a parbox enclosing the images, but the
text in the first column is always aligned to the bottom. When I try to
use 'top' alignment for the column the outcome is even worse, as the
text is beneath the baseline.




Option 1: Do nothing with the images.  Insert custom vertical space 
after the label in the first column (Insert > Formatting > Vertical 
Space ... with Spacing = Custom) and fiddle with the amount of space to 
achieve the desired effect.


Option 2: Do nothing with the label.  Embed the images in boxes (either 
minipages or parboxes).  In the vertical alignment section of the 
settings dialog for each box, leave the Box value at Top, but change the 
Content value to Bottom (although Middle seems to work just as well).


Option 2 requires less tweaking, but the label text aligns with vertical 
space that LaTeX inserts above the images.  Option 1 allows the images 
to be flush with the top of the table row, and gives you more control 
over exactly where the label appears, but it requires manual tweaking.


HTH,
Paul
