A solution for PDF format issue with pdflatex hyperref not producing A4 paper

2010-09-22 Thread Yannick Fournier
Dear all,

For those of you having problems generating PDF in A4 paper format, when
pdflatex is used in conjunction with hyperref and despite having selected A4
in Page Layout under Documents Settings, here is next a simple solution. I'm
working under LyX 1.6.7 with book (Memoir).

In addition to selecting the A4 format in Page Layout, the generated LaTeK
code must contain the \documentclass entry with the a4paper option
included. By writing the custom command a4paper in the Document Settings,
this solves the problem.
Go to menu Documents - Settings... - Document Class - Custom: and add
a4paper (without the quotes).

Sorry if this is no news for you, but I spent 2 days searching for FAQ
/forums / blogs / web before finding. It does not require the use of tex2pdf
(as suggested here http://max.home.subnet.at/tex/).
Unfortunately, I had not detected this problem before printing all my thesis
exemplaries :(((. As my PDF were output in Letter format, the printer driver
of my university printing service applied a shrinkage to convert Letter into
A4 without margin losses, screwing up my nice formatting :(

I don't know if this was corrected in LyX 2.0, but I would suggest
developpers to specifically add a4paper automatically in \documentclass
when the option is selected in Page Layout.

My 2 cents,
Yannick

problems. In fact, one of the goals of eLyXer is to generate valid
XHTML documents. I am aware that it fails in some occasions, but only
when I haven't been able to figure out how to do it right, for
instance: a table within an inline formula.
  http://elyxer.nongnu.org/math.html
The inline formula is naturally translated to , where the
 element is not allowed for some reason; this fails but still
calibre can translate it right to EPUB.

Could you explain what exactly is going wrong so I can maybe help with
it? Thanks!

Alex.


Re: is there a way to mark tables to be converted into a graphical embed version instead of "e-reader flowable" text?
