Re: R Gaphics for Lyx

, I think Graham's question has pointed out a very useful
 direction -- we may consider leaving some sort of API's or hooks in
 the R script in LyX which is used to process the Rnw document.


 A few months ago I also recommended the qpdf program to R developers
 to compress PDF plots and it has been included in R now (the option
 --compact-vignettes in R CMD build). Graham, is your script portable
 to Windows and Mac? Could you share it with us? Maybe we can propose
 this feature to LyX developers. It will be definitely helpful.


Although I do normally use  SWeave, these particular files were simply
exported from R, and then imported into Lyx, there  just big PDFs. ECDFs
based on 120,000 data points, which is why I suspect they are large without
some form of flattening.

But compressing imported PDFs goes beyond R and maybe qpdf could become a
Lyx  feature to optimise PDFs the same way that MSWord allows you to
optimise graphics before saving/printing.

The Nautilus script in Linux uses Ghostscript and maybe this could be
another option to consider along with qpdf.

OK, I see. Thanks!

Both qpdf or pdftk can be used to compress PDF files. It is still
unclear to me which one is better.

The problem of to large graphics is one which I am also am confronted with
when using LyX. Most of the time, it is caused by images from digital
cameras. And this is when I am missing one feature in LyX: downscaling the
pictures auomatically to a specified resolution of the printed graphs.

It should not be to difficult to implement: provide to each *raster* image
an additional field in the insert-graphics window, to resampled to a given
resolution. I assume the actual print size can be obtained from LaTeX, so
the image could be, in addition to be scaled, resampled to the provided
resolution. This would be a very useful feature. This resampling could be
configured during the reconfigure, and could be a kind of a copier jpeg to
jpeg.

By the way - if it would be possible to define a copier jpeg to jpeg (it
does not seem to be possible in 2.0), it would be very easy to include
automatic resampling.

Cheers,

Rainer

problem when using natbib reference

Hi,

I am using Lyx 1.6.7. when I try to use natbib package with author year style, 
the intext references are displayed without the square brackets in the end as

This problem does  not appear when I choose numeric style.
Can u please help solve this issue

It depends on the bibliography style you are using.  Check this:

Re: export to HTML, math equation quality

 @Liviu///  Thanks for the suggestion. But I gave up elyxer because I couldn't
 install in in my laptop (Windows 7 machine). Although I consider myself one of
 the skilled users of windows computers, I was completely lost when I tried to
 install elyxer and python stuff.

 Then, my laptop became almost unusable after the bloody Windows 7 SP1 update.
 For some reason, it started to ground my HDD constantly as if it caught a sort
 of virus or something. (Before this update I had very good impression about
 Windows 7 and my laptop).

 So I switched to Ubuntu 11.04 with Lyx2.0

 It came with two html export option (html and Lyxhtml) - It seems that one of
 these two utilize elyxer but not sure which one is which.

Try to install elyxer and then Tools  Reconfigure in LyX. The elyxer
should be available as a converter.
Liviu


 The first export option (html) was not successful in producing the display
 equations (all of them showed in '*')

 The second export option (Lyxhtml) really worked!! It produced all details of
 math expressions(integral, tilde, hat, etc) flawlessly. And they are all 
 vector
 graphics therefore can be scalable! The only problem left for me is to find a
 way to convert xhtml to rtf or word or openoffice so that I can satisfy those
 who want the bloody '.doc' files.

Re: LyX XeTeX -exit code -1

 Hello,

 I've been successfully using LyX (currently 2.0) as a portable
 application together with TeXlive 2010 on Windows (XP  Vista) for
 quite some time. After switching to XeTeX for some documents with
 Opentype fonts, and only on some computers, XeTeX will not run through
 but immediately exit after being started by LyX. The error message of
 LyX is like this:

 20:52:46.602: The process crashed some time after starting
 successfully...\..\..\lyx-2.0.0\src\support\Systemcall.cpp(238):
 Systemcall: 'xelatex  document.tex' finished with exit code -1

To give us some useful information, please post the full latex log (in
Document  Log), the exact name of the file (there are known issues
when parentheses are part of the file name), and if possible a
_minimal_ example that reproduces the problem.

Regards
Liviu


 On the same computer, the same document, just with LaTeX fonts, will
 successfully compile with pdftex. And, if I export the document that
 uses Opentype fonts from LyX to .tex and then run Xelatex manually from
 the console, it also compiles successfully. Also, on some computers (all
 with Windows), the problem does not occur at all.

 This is not a serious problem for me, I just wonder whether anyone has
 a clue what could be wrong here (in terms of configuration of the
 computers in question or whatever) that I could change or whether this
 could be a hint to some kind of esoteric feature in the communication
 of LyX with XeTeX.

 TIA,

 Sincerely,

 Wolfgang

Table formatting

2011-05-30 Thread Christoph Mayer
Dear all, 

I have some trouble to format the following table. I've attached just an 
exemplary Version  as .lyx-file, since it's a quite complicated table and I 
don't know where to search for the reason. The table as shown in Lyx itself is 
as I want it to have: I have some multicolumns, multirows.   After each 
Multicolumn, marked with Section 1, Section 2, and so on, I want to have at 
least a normal separation in order to distinguish better between these 
sections. It is shown well in Lyx, but during compilation, between the 
different Sections, there is no separation anymore visible, which makes the 
table much harder to read. Could you please help me with some hints to find out 
what went wrong with my table or how the format could be improved? 
I'm running Lyx 2.0 under OsX. 

thank you very much for your kind help, all the best and a nice evening!

Dear Christoph,
I had the very same problem and I have already signaled it as a bug in 
the LyX forum.

When you use multirow, some borders disapper.
You can solve by using the old command \multirow as I show in the 
attached file (you must also put \usepackage{multirow} in the preamble).
Instead, when you do not have borders, you can use the multirow botton 
in LyX.

cross-reference to an enumerated item within a theorem

2011-05-30 Thread Ernesto Posse
Hi. Is there a way to do the following? Suppose I have a Proposition
environment and the text is something like this

Proposition 3 [pro:some-label] The following holds:
 1. [enu:item1] something
 2. [enu:item2] other

and later on I want references to show, for example as:

... by Proposition 3(2)

Currently I use a Formatted reference for the first part and an
un-formatted reference for the second:

... by [Formatted ref: pro:some-label]([Ref: enu:item2])

or in plain LaTeX (with prettyref)

... by \prettyref{pro:some-label}(\ref{enu:item2})

This is a bit cumbersome. Since enu:item2 is inside the Proposition

 It turned out to be an issue with the MSVC compiler and should be fixed
 in the next release. 

Wow, thanks for all the time and effort you put into this.  I really
appreciate it.

 In the meantime, Windows users needing to perform a dvi forward search
 can workaround it by first generating a pdf and *then* previewing as
 dvi.

Yes, that works.  Thanks very much.

Re: R Gaphics for Lyx

, I think Graham's question has pointed out a very useful
 direction -- we may consider leaving some sort of API's or hooks in
 the R script in LyX which is used to process the Rnw document.


 A few months ago I also recommended the qpdf program to R developers
 to compress PDF plots and it has been included in R now (the option
 --compact-vignettes in R CMD build). Graham, is your script portable
 to Windows and Mac? Could you share it with us? Maybe we can propose
 this feature to LyX developers. It will be definitely helpful.


Although I do normally use  SWeave, these particular files were simply
exported from R, and then imported into Lyx, there  just big PDFs. ECDFs
based on 120,000 data points, which is why I suspect they are large without
some form of flattening.

But compressing imported PDFs goes beyond R and maybe qpdf could become a
Lyx  feature to optimise PDFs the same way that MSWord allows you to
optimise graphics before saving/printing.

The Nautilus script in Linux uses Ghostscript and maybe this could be
another option to consider along with qpdf.

OK, I see. Thanks!

Both qpdf or pdftk can be used to compress PDF files. It is still
unclear to me which one is better.

The problem of to large graphics is one which I am also am confronted with
when using LyX. Most of the time, it is caused by images from digital
cameras. And this is when I am missing one feature in LyX: downscaling the
pictures auomatically to a specified resolution of the printed graphs.

It should not be to difficult to implement: provide to each *raster* image
an additional field in the insert-graphics window, to resampled to a given
resolution. I assume the actual print size can be obtained from LaTeX, so
the image could be, in addition to be scaled, resampled to the provided
resolution. This would be a very useful feature. This resampling could be
configured during the reconfigure, and could be a kind of a copier jpeg to
jpeg.

By the way - if it would be possible to define a copier jpeg to jpeg (it
does not seem to be possible in 2.0), it would be very easy to include
automatic resampling.

Cheers,

Rainer

Re: export to HTML, math equation quality

 @Liviu///  Thanks for the suggestion. But I gave up elyxer because I couldn't
 install in in my laptop (Windows 7 machine). Although I consider myself one of
 the skilled users of windows computers, I was completely lost when I tried to
 install elyxer and python stuff.

 Then, my laptop became almost unusable after the bloody Windows 7 SP1 update.
 For some reason, it started to ground my HDD constantly as if it caught a sort
 of virus or something. (Before this update I had very good impression about
 Windows 7 and my laptop).

 So I switched to Ubuntu 11.04 with Lyx2.0

 It came with two html export option (html and Lyxhtml) - It seems that one of
 these two utilize elyxer but not sure which one is which.

Try to install elyxer and then Tools  Reconfigure in LyX. The elyxer
should be available as a converter.
Liviu


 The first export option (html) was not successful in producing the display
 equations (all of them showed in '*')

 The second export option (Lyxhtml) really worked!! It produced all details of
 math expressions(integral, tilde, hat, etc) flawlessly. And they are all 
 vector
 graphics therefore can be scalable! The only problem left for me is to find a
 way to convert xhtml to rtf or word or openoffice so that I can satisfy those
 who want the bloody '.doc' files.

Re: LyX XeTeX -exit code -1

 Hello,

 I've been successfully using LyX (currently 2.0) as a portable
 application together with TeXlive 2010 on Windows (XP  Vista) for
 quite some time. After switching to XeTeX for some documents with
 Opentype fonts, and only on some computers, XeTeX will not run through
 but immediately exit after being started by LyX. The error message of
 LyX is like this:

 20:52:46.602: The process crashed some time after starting
 successfully...\..\..\lyx-2.0.0\src\support\Systemcall.cpp(238):
 Systemcall: 'xelatex  document.tex' finished with exit code -1

To give us some useful information, please post the full latex log (in
Document  Log), the exact name of the file (there are known issues
when parentheses are part of the file name), and if possible a
_minimal_ example that reproduces the problem.

Regards
Liviu


 On the same computer, the same document, just with LaTeX fonts, will
 successfully compile with pdftex. And, if I export the document that
 uses Opentype fonts from LyX to .tex and then run Xelatex manually from
 the console, it also compiles successfully. Also, on some computers (all
 with Windows), the problem does not occur at all.

 This is not a serious problem for me, I just wonder whether anyone has
 a clue what could be wrong here (in terms of configuration of the
 computers in question or whatever) that I could change or whether this
 could be a hint to some kind of esoteric feature in the communication
 of LyX with XeTeX.

 TIA,

 Sincerely,

 Wolfgang

Table formatting

2011-05-30 Thread Christoph Mayer
Dear all, 

I have some trouble to format the following table. I've attached just an 
exemplary Version  as .lyx-file, since it's a quite complicated table and I 
don't know where to search for the reason. The table as shown in Lyx itself is 
as I want it to have: I have some multicolumns, multirows.   After each 
Multicolumn, marked with Section 1, Section 2, and so on, I want to have at 
least a normal separation in order to distinguish better between these 
sections. It is shown well in Lyx, but during compilation, between the 
different Sections, there is no separation anymore visible, which makes the 
table much harder to read. Could you please help me with some hints to find out 
what went wrong with my table or how the format could be improved? 
I'm running Lyx 2.0 under OsX. 

thank you very much for your kind help, all the best and a nice evening!

Dear Christoph,
I had the very same problem and I have already signaled it as a bug in 
the LyX forum.

When you use multirow, some borders disapper.
You can solve by using the old command \multirow as I show in the 
attached file (you must also put \usepackage{multirow} in the preamble).
Instead, when you do not have borders, you can use the multirow botton 
in LyX.

cross-reference to an enumerated item within a theorem

2011-05-30 Thread Ernesto Posse
Hi. Is there a way to do the following? Suppose I have a Proposition
environment and the text is something like this

Proposition 3 [pro:some-label] The following holds:
 1. [enu:item1] something
 2. [enu:item2] other

and later on I want references to show, for example as:

... by Proposition 3(2)

Currently I use a Formatted reference for the first part and an
un-formatted reference for the second:

... by [Formatted ref: pro:some-label]([Ref: enu:item2])

or in plain LaTeX (with prettyref)

... by \prettyref{pro:some-label}(\ref{enu:item2})

This is a bit cumbersome. Since enu:item2 is inside the Proposition
environment, would it be possible to infer the label pro:some-label
associated with that environment to create a format in prettyref so
that referring only to the individual item, so that it gives you the
full reference, i.e. something like

... by [Formatted ref: enu-item2]

yields

... by Proposition 3(2)

?

Wow, thanks for all the time and effort you put into this.  I really
appreciate it.

 In the meantime, Windows users needing to perform a dvi forward search
 can workaround it by first generating a pdf and *then* previewing as
 dvi.

Yes, that works.  Thanks very much.

Although I do normally use  SWeave, these particular files were simply
exported from R, and then imported into Lyx, there  just big PDFs. ECDFs
based on 120,000 data points, which is why I suspect they are large without
some form of flattening.

But compressing imported PDFs goes beyond R and maybe qpdf could become a
Lyx  feature to optimise PDFs the same way that MSWord allows you to
optimise graphics before saving/printing.

The Nautilus script in Linux uses Ghostscript and maybe this could be
another option to consider along with qpdf.

Both qpdf or pdftk can be used to compress PDF files. It is still

The problem of to large graphics is one which I am also am confronted with
when using LyX. Most of the time, it is caused by images from digital
cameras. And this is when I am missing one feature in LyX: downscaling the
pictures auomatically to a specified resolution of the printed graphs.

It should not be to difficult to implement: provide to each *raster* image
an additional field in the insert-graphics window, to resampled to a given
resolution. I assume the actual print size can be obtained from LaTeX, so
the image could be, in addition to be scaled, resampled to the provided
resolution. This would be a very useful feature. This resampling could be
configured during the reconfigure, and could be a kind of a copier "jpeg to
jpeg".

By the way - if it would be possible to define a copier "jpeg to jpeg" (it
does not seem to be possible in 2.0), it would be very easy to include
automatic resampling.

Cheers,

Rainer

the intext references are displayed without the square brackets in the end as

All together 982 lines as above.
Besides that, gentoo amd64 works fine on my box and I emerge everyday packages 
to upgrade, except those which are kde's.
Questions:
- what the hell is this mess, did I do something wrong ?
- have any of you got the same kind of troubles ?
- is there a way to go back to an up to date clean install, I mean besides 
reinstalling from scratch or going for Ubuntu ?
Reasons that make me go for gentoo 8 or 9 years ago:
- excellent docs. (as of to-day, some docs need updating);
- easyness of maintenance, no need for periodical reinstall (I'm not sure this 
time);
- stable packages are renewed in time, not too soon, not too late;
- portage works like a charm.
Hope I can get some help

Table formatting

2011-05-30 Thread Christoph Mayer
Dear all, 

I have some trouble to format the following table. I've attached just an 
exemplary Version  as .lyx-file, since it's a quite complicated table and I 
don't know where to search for the reason. The table as shown in Lyx itself is 
as I want it to have: I have some multicolumns, multirows.   After each 
Multicolumn, marked with Section 1, Section 2, and so on, I want to have at 
least a normal separation in order to distinguish better between these 
sections. It is shown well in Lyx, but during compilation, between the 
different Sections, there is no separation anymore visible, which makes the 
table much harder to read. Could you please help me with some hints to find out 
what went wrong with my table or how the format could be improved? 
I'm running Lyx 2.0 under OsX. 

thank you very much for your kind help, all the best and a nice evening!

Dear Christoph,
I had the very same problem and I have already signaled it as a bug in 
the LyX forum.

When you use multirow, some borders disapper.
You can solve by using the old command \multirow as I show in the 
attached file (you must also put \usepackage{multirow} in the preamble).
Instead, when you do not have borders, you can use the multirow botton 
in LyX.

cross-reference to an enumerated item within a theorem

2011-05-30 Thread Ernesto Posse
Hi. Is there a way to do the following? Suppose I have a "Proposition"
environment and the text is something like this

Proposition 3 [pro:some-label] The following holds:
 1. [enu:item1] something
 2. [enu:item2] other

and later on I want references to show, for example as:

"... by Proposition 3(2)"

Currently I use a Formatted reference for the first part and an
un-formatted reference for the second:

"... by [Formatted ref: pro:some-label]([Ref: enu:item2])"

or in plain LaTeX (with prettyref)

"... by \prettyref{pro:some-label}(\ref{enu:item2})"

This is a bit cumbersome. Since enu:item2 is inside the Proposition
environment, would it be possible to infer the label pro:some-label
associated with that environment to create a format in prettyref so
that referring only to the individual item, so that it gives you the
full reference, i.e. something like

"... by [Formatted ref: enu-item2]"

yields

"... by Proposition 3(2)"
