To terminate a command, if no other termination is done. In your case, LaTeX 
thought you meant the command \onsted (which could very well be meant), and 
failed, because no such command existed. If another command follows (Br\o\ss), 
not termination is needed. You can also terminate by braces (Br{\o}nsted or

Removing figure numbers

2011-02-03 Thread Kristoffer Lawson
Hi there, I am writing a report about a project I was running (in my signature 
for those curious :) and I would like to have captions for my images. By using 
directly inserted graphics there seems to be no way to do this. I tried using 
floated graphics but here the problem is that each caption gets the text 
Figure 1: to it. This is something I don't want as the images are there just 
to liven up the story, and I do not refer to them.

I found a hack to remove the figure number, but the Figure : text still 
remains. Am I missing some really obvious option?

a problem with beta 3 on linux (Kubuntu) 10.10

2011-02-03 Thread Adriano Bassignana
If I load a file with this name:

file_name_(1).lyx

The Lyx load and seve it without problems, but when I try to display it the 
program try to convert with e different file name:

file_name_1.lyx

and the display subroutine apparently stop without explicit message. I think 
the problem my be due to the filtering the ( ) chars from the file name. I 
think this is e big problem with Linux O.S. because is normal to insert this 
char in file name. I do not try with other chars, for exaple òàèìù, but i

newcommand or command in caption of figure?

\usepackage{tikz}
\newcommand*\mycirc[1]{%

\caption{ diagram displaying the corrosion

I cannot compile it, even when I insert the command directly into the caption, 
like

\begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=(C.base)] \node[draw,circle,inner sep=1pt](C) {1};

it only produces errors, while both possible ways work outside the caption in

I'm guessing that the problem here has to do with the use of tikzpix in 
moving arguments. Perhaps a different version of \mycirc would solve the 
problem, say, one that just printed the argument over a circle. I'm 
forgetting at the moment how to do that in a size-agnostic way. I guess 
by making boxes, figuring out how big they are, and then using \kern to 
move back just the right amount.

You mentioned in a previous message that the images are all EPS files, 
and IIRC you said that they show up in DVI and PS output but not in PDF 
output.  That suggests that LyX is failing to convert them to a 
preferred format for PDF output.  (EPS images go directly into PS output 
without format change, and I believe that's also true of DVI output.)


First check:  View  PDF and, with LyX still open, peek into the 
temporary directory and see if the EPS files were copied there (with 
name changes) and if there are copies with the same file names but .pdf 
extensions.  My guess is the answers will be yes and no in that order.


Next, go to Tools  Preferences...  File Handling  Converters and 
confirm that there is at least one converter defined from EPS to PDF, 
and that the converter line reads 'epstopdf --outfile=$$o $$i'.  On my 
Windows box, the converter is from EPS to PDF (ps2pdf) rather than to 
PDF (pdflatex), but that does not seem to matter -- when I run View PDF 
(pdflatex), LyX runs epstopdf.


Finally, open a command shell and run 'kpsewhich epstopdf.exe'.  If 
MiKTeX is correctly installed, it should return the path to epstopdf.exe.

Oh, sorry, I didn't see that you want the caption but not the label.

If that's what you want, then you will have to do something like 
redefine the \@makecaption macro that is used to set the caption. I 
tried redefining \fnum@figure to do nothing, but that leaves the : in 
front of the caption. Here's the definition from article.cls:


\long\def\@makecaption#1#2{%
  \vskip\abovecaptionskip
  \sbox\@tempboxa{#1: #2}%
  \ifdim \wd\@tempboxa \hsize
#1: #2\par
  \else
\global \@minipagefalse
\hb@xt@\hsize{\hfil\box\@tempboxa\hfil}%
  \fi
  \vskip\belowcaptionskip}

#1 is what you don't want. If you never want it, then you can just 
replace #1: #2 with #2 and be done with it. If you want it in some 
cases but not others, that is more complicated.

No one has stepped forward to do this, and it is not trivial. But you

You could just define a couple environments to house the graphic and the

environment prints variable mycaption, and mycaption is set by a character

  Well, it's a wild guess, but what if you temporarily redefine
 \addcontentsline at the start of the frontmatter and then restore it at the
 end? E.g.:

 \let\oldaddcl=\addcontentsline

Doesn't sound as if you changed anything, but if View  PDF (pdflatex)

That works (and is the designated way to do it), provided that you don't

twice, it usually crabs about conflicting settings.  Some document

 Anyone knows how we can get past this problem?

I think your problem lies in Dropbox itself and the file locking
mechanics (I understand you are working on Windows). Dropbox cannot
update (write to) file currently open by any application for reading,
Windows permission system does not allow that. I do not know whether
LyX keep file opened or locked anyhow (should for NFS purpose),
however while Dropbox  1.0 is able to read and sync files to the
server (it do that with my opened Excel sheets) it is not able to
write anything while file is opened.

When you close the LyX all locks are removed, Dropbox quickly updates
your file from the server, then when you reopen LyX you see new
version. I think LyX should operate at Dropbox API level to handle
properly that case you expect. I think it won't happen fast if at all.

You are wild guessing? AFAICS, LyX doesn't lock the files and - 
at least on Unix (Linux and Mac) - it doesn't keep the original
file open. I never tested this on windows. You may try to copy 
an elder version of a file over the original while LyX has the
document on screen to try it out.

 When you close the LyX all locks are removed, Dropbox quickly updates
 your file from the server, then when you reopen LyX you see new
 version.

Did you try to use Revert to saved...? If you don't edit the file
and no change to the file happened externally this menu item is
disabled. If one of these conditions is true - you can reload the
original from disk with Revert to saved

 I think LyX should operate at Dropbox API level to handle
 properly that case you expect.

I don't think that this is needed - and cannot imagine it should happen.

 I think it won't happen fast if at all.

If merge features are needed - I'd suggest to use a real revision control
system like SVN. It's designed for collaboration. LyX is able to handle

Of course you need a SVN repository somewhere with access for all co-workers...

Unfortunately I'm still getting the same ...cannot determine size of

You mentioned in a previous message that the images are all EPS files, 
and IIRC you said that they show up in DVI and PS output but not in PDF 
output.  That suggests that LyX is failing to convert them to a 
preferred format for PDF output.  (EPS images go directly into PS output 
without format change, and I believe that's also true of DVI output.)


First check:  View  PDF and, with LyX still open, peek into the 
temporary directory and see if the EPS files were copied there (with 
name changes) and if there are copies with the same file names but .pdf 
extensions.  My guess is the answers will be yes and no in that order.


Next, go to Tools  Preferences...  File Handling  Converters and 
confirm that there is at least one converter defined from EPS to PDF, 
and that the converter line reads 'epstopdf --outfile=$$o $$i'.  On my 
Windows box, the converter is from EPS to PDF (ps2pdf) rather than to 
PDF (pdflatex), but that does not seem to matter -- when I run View PDF 
(pdflatex), LyX runs epstopdf.


Finally, open a command shell and run 'kpsewhich epstopdf.exe'.  If 
MiKTeX is correctly installed, it should return the path to epstopdf.exe.

Oh, sorry, I didn't see that you want the caption but not the label.

If that's what you want, then you will have to do something like 
redefine the \@makecaption macro that is used to set the caption. I 
tried redefining \fnum@figure to do nothing, but that leaves the : in 
front of the caption. Here's the definition from article.cls:


\long\def\@makecaption#1#2{%
  \vskip\abovecaptionskip
  \sbox\@tempboxa{#1: #2}%
  \ifdim \wd\@tempboxa \hsize
#1: #2\par
  \else
\global \@minipagefalse
\hb@xt@\hsize{\hfil\box\@tempboxa\hfil}%
  \fi
  \vskip\belowcaptionskip}

#1 is what you don't want. If you never want it, then you can just 
replace #1: #2 with #2 and be done with it. If you want it in some

No one has stepped forward to do this, and it is not trivial. But you

You could just define a couple environments to house the graphic and the

environment prints variable mycaption, and mycaption is set by a character

 Any ideas would be highly appreciated!

  Well, it's a wild guess, but what if you temporarily redefine
 \addcontentsline at the start of the frontmatter and then restore it at the

 \let\oldaddcl=\addcontentsline

Re: [WINDOWS] Python scripts fail

2011-02-03 Thread Gabriel Kniffin
I did View  PDF (pdflatex) then checked the temporary directory. It has all
the EPS files with name changes as well as copies of the EPS files with .pdf
extensions. There is an EPS - PDF converter. It's ps2pdf and the converter
line matches what you have.

Just as a check I tried View  PDF (ps2pdf) and it generated a .pdf, but
after opening it Adobe Reader crashed. Not sure why, but I opened another
.pdf that I didn't just make with LyX and it crashed too, so I figured it
was an Adobe Reader problem. I rebooted and tried again and it worked! I
then tried View  PDF (pdflatex) and it works too. I'm not sure what
changed, but I hope it stays fixed.

One more thing, I still get errors if I go to Document  Settings...  PDF
Properties and click Use hyperref support. Can you use the hyperref package
this way or is there a better way?

Thanks for all your help!

  You mentioned in a previous message that the images are all EPS files,
 and IIRC you said that they show up in DVI and PS output but not in PDF
 output.  That suggests that LyX is failing to convert them to a preferred
 format for PDF output.  (EPS images go directly into PS output without
 format change, and I believe that's also true of DVI output.)

 First check:  View  PDF and, with LyX still open, peek into the temporary
 directory and see if the EPS files were copied there (with name changes) and
 if there are copies with the same file names but .pdf extensions.  My guess
 is the answers will be yes and no in that order.

 Next, go to Tools  Preferences...  File Handling  Converters and confirm
 that there is at least one converter defined from EPS to PDF, and that the
 converter line reads 'epstopdf --outfile=$$o $$i'.  On my Windows box, the
 converter is from EPS to PDF (ps2pdf) rather than to PDF (pdflatex), but
 that does not seem to matter -- when I run View PDF (pdflatex), LyX runs
 epstopdf.

 Finally, open a command shell and run 'kpsewhich epstopdf.exe'.  If MiKTeX
 is correctly installed, it should return the path to epstopdf.exe.

Doesn't sound as if you changed anything, but if View  PDF (pdflatex) 
was creating PDFs in the temp directory (and if they were not 0 byte 
files), then you _should_ have been getting images in the PDF output 
file.  So this is still a mystery.


One more thing, I still get errors if I go to Document  Settings...

That works (and is the designated way to do it), provided that you don't 
separately load hyperref in the preamble.  If hyperref gets loaded 
twice, it usually crabs about conflicting settings.  Some document 
classes may load hyperref automatically (I think maybe beamer does), so 
this can get tricky.

You are wild guessing? AFAICS, LyX doesn't lock the files and - 
at least on Unix (Linux and Mac) - it doesn't keep the original
file open. I never tested this on windows. You may try to copy 
an elder version of a file over the original while LyX has the
document on screen to try it out.

 When you close the LyX all locks are removed, Dropbox quickly updates
 your file from the server, then when you reopen LyX you see new
 version.

Did you try to use Revert to saved...? If you don't edit the file
and no change to the file happened externally this menu item is
disabled. If one of these conditions is true - you can reload the
original from disk with Revert to saved

 I think LyX should operate at Dropbox API level to handle
 properly that case you expect.

I don't think that this is needed - and cannot imagine it should happen.

 I think it won't happen fast if at all.
 Forst it need good merge feature - I do not know if is finished or

If merge features are needed - I'd suggest to use a real revision control
system like SVN. It's designed for collaboration. LyX is able to handle

Of course you need a SVN repository somewhere with access for all co-workers...

To terminate a command, if no other termination is done. In your case, LaTeX 
thought you meant the command \onsted (which could very well be meant), and 
failed, because no such command existed. If another command follows (Br\o\ss), 
not termination is needed. You can also terminate by braces (Br{\o}nsted or

Removing figure numbers

Oh, sorry, I didn't see that you want the caption but not the label.

If that's what you want, then you will have to do something like 
redefine the \@makecaption macro that is used to set the caption. I

Has there been any improvement from this suggestion ? I can't find something
similar in 2.0.0, but such a nice feature would be very useful.

It could even go even further: the "maketitle" part of the document could also
be folded. Same thing about appendices, etc.

Is there any plan ?

No one has stepped forward to do this, and it is not trivial. But you 
can get much the same effect by putting the material you want folded 
into a branch. I always do with the math macros I have at the top.

You could just define a couple environments to house the graphic and the 
caption, or perhaps define an environment for the graphic, and that 
environment prints variable mycaption, and mycaption is set by a character 
style that doesn't print its content. I do this for my Warnings boxes.

I think the most LyXically correct way to do it is to use an environment with 
a label, but I'm not sure how those work.

Doesn't sound as if you changed anything, but if View > PDF (pdflatex)

That works (and is the designated way to do it), provided that you don't 
separately load hyperref in the preamble.  If hyperref gets loaded 
twice, it usually crabs about conflicting settings.  Some document 
classes may load hyperref automatically (I think maybe beamer does), so 
this can get tricky.

I think your problem lies in Dropbox itself and the file locking
mechanics (I understand you are working on Windows). Dropbox cannot
update (write to) file currently open by any application for reading,
Windows permission system does not allow that. I do not know whether
LyX keep file opened or locked anyhow (should for NFS purpose),
however while Dropbox > 1.0 is able to read and sync files to the
server (it do that with my opened Excel sheets) it is not able to
write anything while file is opened.

When you close the LyX all locks are removed, Dropbox quickly updates
your file from the server, then when you reopen LyX you see new
version. I think LyX should operate at Dropbox API level to handle
properly that case you expect. I think it won't happen fast if at all.
Forst it need good "merge" feature - I do not know if is finished or
not.

You are wild guessing? AFAICS, LyX doesn't lock the files and - 
at least on Unix (Linux and Mac) - it doesn't keep the original
file open. I never tested this on windows. You may try to copy 
an elder version of a file over the original while LyX has the
document on screen to try it out.

> When you close the LyX all locks are removed, Dropbox quickly updates

Did you try to use "Revert to saved..."? If you don't edit the file
and no change to the file happened externally this menu item is
disabled. If one of these conditions is true - you can reload the
original from disk with "Revert to saved...".

I don't think that this is needed - and cannot imagine it should happen.

If merge features are needed - I'd suggest to use a real revision control
system like SVN. It's designed for collaboration. LyX is able to handle
locking with SVN, warns you if a merge is needed etc. See the LyX docs.
Of course you need a SVN repository somewhere with access for all co-workers...
