Create my own module

2011-08-14 Thread Francesco Menoncin

Dear LyX users,

I am using LyX 2.0.0 (on both Windows and Linux).
How can I create my own module and add it to the list in Document 
Settings?
For instance, I have put the following commands in the preamble in order 
to create a balanced index


\RequirePackage{multicol}

\renewenvironment{theindex}{

\columnseprule 0pt\relax

\columnsep 35pt\relax

\chapter*{\indexname}

\begin{multicols}{2}

\@mkboth{\MakeUppercase \indexname}{\MakeUppercase \indexname}

\thispagestyle{plain} \parindent 0pt\relax \parskip 0pt \@plus .3pt\relax

\let\item\@idxitem}

{\end{multicols}}


Nevertheless, if I were able to collect these commands in a module, I 
could use them in a much easier way.

Thank you,

Francesco

Many thanks! It now compiles without an error message. However, the
result is incorrect. The key is being printed instead of the citation,
and it is in the text, not in a footnote. Example:

This is a test.aristotle:metaphy:gr

If I put \footcite{aristotle:metaphy:gr} in ERT, I get get a footnote
number in the text as follows:

This is a test.1

but in the footnote itself only the key prints:

1 aristotle:metaphy:gr

Many thanks for helping me with this. I've been trying to get this to

Re: biblatex-chicago

2011-08-14 Thread Julio Rojas
As for the footnotes, you first have to use a biblatex style that
automatically makes use of \footcite. For this, you need to add the
citestyle option
citestyle=verbose-trad1 . What I usually do is that I renew a command
like \citep into \autocite adding the following command to the
preamble:

\renewcommand\citep{\autocite}

As for the lack of references in the footnotes, it might be due to the
lack of the bibliography's full path in the preamble.

Try this and let me know. Regards.

 I installed Lyx 2.0.0 on my Windows 7 laptop. I wrote a text, and when

 An error happened during the execution :

 (I translate because I use the french version, so maybe it's not
 exactly the same in the english version)


 I also have an error from the conversion from bmp(or jpg) to eps, but
 I should look on the web to find how to solve this one.

It's possible these errors are related. There have been some reports of
such errors under Windows 7. They seem to involve LyX's not finding the
correct Python interpreter.

Perhaps someone on Windows can help with this. You might also try
looking back through the list archive, here:

Author-Year-Page Citation Style

2011-08-14 Thread Bruce Pourciau
I have a document in the Article (Elsevier) class, with Natbib Author- 
Year selected under Bibliography and \usepackage{natbib} in the  
preamble. I have a bibtex generated bibliography using the .bst style  
file of the journal which is in the folder with my document.


The bibliography is coming out fine, but the citations in the text  
should be, say, [Newton, 1999, 407] and I'm getting a numerical style  
with no brackets: 12, 407.


LyX 1.6.5 on a Mac

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Bruce

P.S. I can live with a numerical style if I have to -- the journal  
will convert the numerical style to author-year (at least they did the  
last time) -- but I still would need the brackets: [12, 407], not just  
12, 407.

You don't need \usepackage{natbib}  in the preamble, but select the
natbib option in Document - Settings - Bibliography. There you can
also select Author,Year. For square brackets add square to the
options in Document - Settings - Document Class - Custom.

How to change the default setting of inserting a graph?

2011-08-14 Thread Zhaorong Wang
Dear lyx users,
I am using lyx 2.0 on windows 7. I just keep lyx as simple editor of
writing progress report every week. Often I need to insert figures,
but the figures usually have different original size. Lyx seems to
insert graphs using their original size as default. But sometimes big
figure even exceeds the right boundary of the page. Then I need to
make it smaller manually through the graph dialog box. So I want to
change the default to be like as wide as the text width. How can I do
in the preamble? I am simply using the document class article.
Thanks for any help!

Python Error on Windows 7? [was: Can't export in PDF]

 I also have an error from the conversion from bmp(or jpg) to eps, but

It's possible these errors are related. There have been some reports of

You don't need \usepackage{natbib}  in the preamble, but select the
natbib option in Document - Settings - Bibliography. There you can
also select Author,Year. For square brackets add square to the

How to change the default setting of inserting a graph?

2011-08-14 Thread Zhaorong Wang
Dear lyx users,
I am using lyx 2.0 on windows 7. I just keep lyx as simple editor of
writing progress report every week. Often I need to insert figures,
but the figures usually have different original size. Lyx seems to
insert graphs using their original size as default. But sometimes big
figure even exceeds the right boundary of the page. Then I need to
make it smaller manually through the graph dialog box. So I want to
change the default to be like as wide as the text width. How can I do
in the preamble? I am simply using the document class article.
Thanks for any help!

Create my own module

2011-08-14 Thread Francesco Menoncin

Dear LyX users,

I am using LyX 2.0.0 (on both Windows and Linux).
How can I create my own module and add it to the list in "Document 
Settings"?
For instance, I have put the following commands in the preamble in order 
to create a "balanced index"


\RequirePackage{multicol}

\renewenvironment{theindex}{

\columnseprule 0pt\relax

\columnsep 35pt\relax

\chapter*{\indexname}

\begin{multicols}{2}

\@mkboth{\MakeUppercase \indexname}{\MakeUppercase \indexname}

\thispagestyle{plain} \parindent 0pt\relax \parskip 0pt \@plus .3pt\relax

\let\item\@idxitem}

{\end{multicols}}


Nevertheless, if I were able to collect these commands in a module, I 
could use them in a much easier way.

Thank you,

Francesco

Many thanks! It now compiles without an error message. However, the
result is incorrect. The key is being printed instead of the citation,
and it is in the text, not in a footnote. Example:

This is a test.aristotle:metaphy:gr

If I put \footcite{aristotle:metaphy:gr} in ERT, I get get a footnote
number in the text as follows:

This is a test.1

but in the footnote itself only the key prints:

1 aristotle:metaphy:gr

Many thanks for helping me with this. I've been trying to get this to
work for a long time.

Please see chapter 5 of the Customization manual. The process is

and then add the module declaration code at the top. Oh, and don't

Re: biblatex-chicago

2011-08-14 Thread Julio Rojas
As for the footnotes, you first have to use a biblatex style that
automatically makes use of "\footcite". For this, you need to add the
"citestyle" option
citestyle=verbose-trad1 . What I usually do is that I renew a command
like "\citep" into "\autocite" adding the following command to the
preamble:

\renewcommand\citep{\autocite}

As for the lack of references in the footnotes, it might be due to the
lack of the bibliography's full path in the preamble.

Try this and let me know. Regards.

P.S. I can live with a numerical style if I have to -- the journal will 
convert the numerical style to author-year (at least they did the last time) 
-- but I still would need the brackets: [12, 407], not just 12, 407.

This is almost always due to a problem in the BibTeX file, e.g., a
missing year somewhere, or possibly a Unicode character that is messing
things up. Exporting to LaTeX and running everything manually from a
terminal:
latex myfile
bibtex myfile
should help. Error messages from the latter are what to look for.

You don't need \usepackage{natbib}  in the preamble, but select the
natbib option in Document -> Settings -> Bibliography. There you can
also select Author,Year. For square brackets add "square" to the
options in Document -> Settings -> Document Class -> Custom.

I hope this helps. Regards.

How to change the default setting of inserting a graph?

2011-08-14 Thread Zhaorong Wang
Dear lyx users,
I am using lyx 2.0 on windows 7. I just keep lyx as simple editor of
writing progress report every week. Often I need to insert figures,
but the figures usually have different original size. Lyx seems to
insert graphs using their original size as default. But sometimes big
figure even exceeds the right boundary of the page. Then I need to
make it smaller manually through the graph dialog box. So I want to
change the default to be like as wide as the text width. How can I do
in the preamble? I am simply using the document class "article".
Thanks for any help!
