OT: checked box symbol

2011-09-19 Thread Liviu Andronic
Hello
This is slightly off topic. I'm looking for a (decent) LaTeX symbol
that would display a box that contains a check mark. I looked into the
'The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List' [1], but it only suggests
\CheckedBox in 'wasysym' and \Checkedbox in 'marvosym', both sloppy
executions (to my taste). I could use XeTeX and insert the Unicode
U+2611 ☑, which looks nice, but I'm not sure I'll be able to compile
my document in a Windows environment.

Would you have some other suggestions? Regards
Liviu

 Glad you got it fixed. Does it work also if you position the cursor ahead of
 the branch and select the Standard environment from the dropdown? I would
 think it should work.

I tried that, but this method failed. Nothing happens (I used Alt+P, S).

 Such additional experiments expected from the user to clean thing up
 does not seem to be a wanted feature of the application.


 I guess the cursor was in Chapter environment when you did Insert  Branch.
 Then the branch resides inside a Chapter environment. There is a reasonable
 chance that this is actually what you want.

 So, should LyX do better by guessing that you want to do with the branch
 based on the current selection? Something like, if the selection involves
 the whole of an environment, or more than one environment, put the branch in
 a Standard environment.

If I select whole chapter in outline and then want to move it into
branch, what I want? For sure not leaving empty chapter.

Maybe I am wrong, but I think whole chapter should go there and branch
should left in standard environment. Anyone else vote on this or that?

 I have two files. The first one I wrote with LyX 1.6.7. Then I installed

 Undefined control sequence.

 for example with the description

 ist $\unit[1]{\lyxmathsym{\textdegree}C}
   $ gleich $\unit[1]{K}$.
 The control sequence at the end of the top line
 of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
 misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
 spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
 and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

 That was not useful. 

It tells, that at this stage, LaTeX does not know the command \unit.

Did you type this command in your document or did LyX insert it?

Did you manually load the package unit.sty (in the user preamble)?
Did you use a module?

 I tried a lot of things. Once I succeeded to reduce
 the error by one.

 The last trial was to copy the text, to make a new file and to paste the
 text. I did the same with all the options and settings. At least I had a
 manually copied file. And...

 It worked. No errors, no complains.

Is the missing command /unit still in the exported LaTeX source (you can
check with ViewSource or by exporting to LaTeX)?

 I think LyX does not delete all the code if one changes some settings.

It only deletes what it inserts. Also, if you remove a module, LyX will/can
typically not remove code that depends on this module.

Also, if you move a file from one computer to another, LyX will not remove
code that relies on packages only present on the first...

Do you know if I could continue using Palatino (Palladio) in my
document (with LM for the rest), while randomly inserting Unicode
chars like this that would use an OpenType font? I'd like to keep
working with Palatino.

However, to answer your question, the Windows environment on the other
side of my laptop is badly out of date and features MiKTeX 2.8 (which
complains when trying to compile with XeTeX) and a broken Sweave
installation (I still haven't figured what I managed to break when
upgrading R). Since when using Windows I'm anyways mainly relying on
TeXLive on Xubuntu on a Virtual Machine, I may just go haywire and
experiment with LyX with TL on Windows.

How about playing with

preamble:
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{wasysym}
\newcommand{\cbox}{\ensuremath\square\kern-0.7em\raise.3ex\hbox{\checkmark}}


text
ctrl-m \cbox



or making a math macro of that kind?


I can see that there's also a kern command implemented in the math 
environment in LyX, but I don't know how to use it.




Yet another way would be to use

Maybe you (or someone else) just wants to put that part of the chapter 
in a branch, and continue writing in the same chapter the other part. 
How would LyX know to differentiate?






Maybe I am wrong, but I think whole chapter should go there and branch
should left in standard environment. Anyone else vote on this or that?



In your case I'd make a master document where all the chapter files are 
'included', and some of the includes (little gray boxes) are put in 
branches.

Or, just start writing a new chapter already in a branch box.

Hi,

Using the normal Palatino font, I can get the checkboxes (3 states of 
them) using the insert-special characters-symbols... (in the 
miscellaneous symbols category).


When using xetex/luatex (documents- settings- fonts), and choosing 
Palatina Lynotype font, they are replaced by a spiral in the pdf. 
Probably they are not available in that font, because they work fine 
with Deja Vu Sans.


Best regards.

Steve, Beamer is very powerful for advanced users. For a basic user, you have to
be happy with the existing styles and themes it provides. If you read

is very straightforward to place things (graphics, texts) anywhere on the slide

Spell cheking grrr! ;-)

2011-09-19 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hi,

I am using Lyx 2.0.1 under OSX. I have started to type a document. The
document is in French, but I have forgotten first to switch the
document properties/Language from English to French. After two
paragraphs I woke up and done the change, but now it continues to
check the first paragraphs in English, whatever I try... I have
selected all paragraphs + right-click + Language+Français, but it
continues to indicate English at the bottom of the screen.

I have also tried to do it paragraph by paragraph, but without any
success. It continues to think that the text is in English.

Moreover, I have also tried to choose Français as language in
Tools/Spell-check but it switches by itself to English as soon as
raise the mouse button in the selection box.

What is the magic way of asking to Lyx to set the language to the one
we select? Is there a way?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

They are located inside the software package. The current state

Thank Stephan for the suggestion, but this is the first thing I have
tried. Thinking about it, maybe this operation has created this
confusion, given that at the moment of the operation, part of my
document was in English, and the rest in Français. Maybe giving a
global common language has posed a problem to Lyx (is English stronger
that Français^2?  :-)  )?

This kind of operation should be quite simple and reliable in a word
processor I think. I understand that changing the language of the
document should not change the language of already written paragraphs
(since we can have paragraphs in another language, deliberately put in
the document), but marking a paragraph manually with a language should
reliably work IMHO. This is a bug I imagine.

If I summarize my problem:

1/ I have created a new document the default language of which was English;
2/ I have written two paragraphs in French in it, then I have seen the
wavy red lines and understood that I have not changed the default
language);
3/ I have opened the document properties and switched the language to Français;
4/ I have written other paragraphs in French, it was OK.
5/ I have seen that the first two paragraphs was continuing to pose
problem (which is normal);
6/ I have marked them with the mouse + right-click+Language and

Fwd: Spell cheking grrr! ;-)

2011-09-19 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Sorry my previous message has been sent too early by error. Here is
the complete version.




Thanks Stephan for the suggestion, but this is the first thing I have
tried. Thinking about it, maybe this operation has created this
confusion, given that at the moment of the operation, part of my
document was in English, and the rest in Français. Maybe giving a
global common language has posed a problem to Lyx (is English stronger
that Français^2?  :-)  )?

This kind of operation should be quite simple and reliable in a word
processor I think. I understand that changing the language of the
document should not change the language of already written paragraphs
(since we can have paragraphs in another language, deliberately put in
the document), but marking a paragraph manually with a language should
reliably work IMHO. This is a bug I imagine.

If I summarize my problem:

1/ I have created a new document the default language of which was English;
2/ I have written two paragraphs in French in it, then I have seen the
wavy red lines and understood that I have not changed the default
language);
3/ I have opened the document properties and switched the language to Français;
4/ I have written other paragraphs in French, it was OK.
5/ I have seen that the first two paragraphs was continuing to pose
problem (which is normal);
6/ I have marked the whole document them with the mouse +
right-click+Language and
selected Français.
7/ I was surprised to observe that the red wavy lines were persisting
8/ I have checked the language at the status bar, it continued to show
English at the beginning of the paragraph.
9/ I have selected the paragraph with the mouse + right-click+Language and
selected Français again
10/ The problem persisted.

So, I do not know what happens. When I have finished this urgent
document, I will check the content of the .lyx file to try to
understand what is wrong with this file.

If you have any other idea in the mean time...
Concerning only two paragraphs, my specific problem is not important,
but I have the impression that it is more general and could be meet
for bigger chunks of text. In which case, that could be much more
painful.

Murat

 French as the Language and Bang! English has came back. I am

 I propose to mark the whole document and change the language to French.
 I really can understand your distress... I think the default document

LyX on Mac 10.4

2011-09-19 Thread Tommaso Cucinotta

Hi all,

I'm forwarding the experienced problems of a colleague of mine trying to 
use LyX 2.0.0 on a Mac -- I don't know whether these are known issues 
and have been fixed, or if it's useful to report them.


Bye,

T.

When I open lyx v2.0 on my mac os 10.4, I get the following message:

Lyx will only have minimum functionality because no textclasses have 
been found. You can either try to reconfigure Lyx normally, try to 
reconfigure without checking your Latex installation, or continue


There are three options: reconfigure, without latex, and continue. No 
matter what I choose although I don't get any error messages,  when Lyx 
starts the functions for compiling and viewing the pdf are disabled. 
Also, there are no options under Export.


I tried to google this problem, but couldn't find something relevant.  
Maybe it has to do with the fact that I still using mac os 10.4.


I didn't have this problem on my windows pc.

Anyway, after exporting the paper in lyx 1.6, I was able to compile it 
using the lyx 1.6 installation on my mac. However, when I tried to 
launch the spellchecker I received the following error message:


The spellchecker could not be started. Lyx: Failed to start ispell!

copy/paste the first two paragraphs to any plain text editor, create a

Allowing dummy scroll at the end of a document

2011-09-19 Thread Joon Ro

Hi,

I don't know what is the terminology for this, but it would be great if  
LyX allows a document to scroll a little bit even though there is no  
lines. For example, when I write down a document, I can comfortably type  
until the number of lines increases and the cursor goes to the bottom of  
the screen. At that stage, as long as I'm adding new lines, the cursor  
stays at the bottom of the screen, and it is not comfortable for my eyes.  
I would want LyX to scroll the document a little bit, so I can have the  
cursor at the middle of the screen even though it is on the last line of  
the document.


Maybe LyX can maintain about a half page dummy gray area after end of the  
document so I can scroll a little bit. Now in order to do so I'm typing a  
lot of one character and enter to have some space shown under the cursor.


Hopefully this explains what I'm talking about.

\CheckedBox in 'wasysym' and \Checkedbox in 'marvosym', both sloppy

 Glad you got it fixed. Does it work also if you position the cursor ahead of
 the branch and select the Standard environment from the dropdown? I would
 think it should work.

I tried that, but this method failed. Nothing happens (I used Alt+P, S).

 Such additional experiments expected from the user to clean thing up
 does not seem to be a wanted feature of the application.


 I guess the cursor was in Chapter environment when you did Insert  Branch.
 Then the branch resides inside a Chapter environment. There is a reasonable
 chance that this is actually what you want.

 So, should LyX do better by guessing that you want to do with the branch
 based on the current selection? Something like, if the selection involves
 the whole of an environment, or more than one environment, put the branch in
 a Standard environment.

If I select whole chapter in outline and then want to move it into
branch, what I want? For sure not leaving empty chapter.

Maybe I am wrong, but I think whole chapter should go there and branch
should left in standard environment. Anyone else vote on this or that?

 Undefined control sequence.

 The control sequence at the end of the top line
 of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
 misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
 spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
 and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

 That was not useful. 

It tells, that at this stage, LaTeX does not know the command \unit.

Did you type this command in your document or did LyX insert it?

Did you manually load the package unit.sty (in the user preamble)?
Did you use a module?

 I tried a lot of things. Once I succeeded to reduce
 the error by one.

 The last trial was to copy the text, to make a new file and to paste the
 text. I did the same with all the options and settings. At least I had a
 manually copied file. And...

 It worked. No errors, no complains.

Is the missing command /unit still in the exported LaTeX source (you can
check with ViewSource or by exporting to LaTeX)?

 I think LyX does not delete all the code if one changes some settings.

It only deletes what it inserts. Also, if you remove a module, LyX will/can
typically not remove code that depends on this module.

Also, if you move a file from one computer to another, LyX will not remove
code that relies on packages only present on the first...

Maybe you (or someone else) just wants to put that part of the chapter

How would LyX know to differentiate?

In your case I'd make a master document where all the chapter files are

branches.

Or, just start writing a new chapter already in a branch box.

Hi,

Using the normal Palatino font, I can get the checkboxes (3 states of 
them) using the insert-special characters-symbols... (in the 
miscellaneous symbols category).


When using xetex/luatex (documents- settings- fonts), and choosing 
Palatina Lynotype font, they are replaced by a spiral in the pdf. 
Probably they are not available in that font, because they work fine

 pros and cons? What are its design priorities? What types of 
 presentations would best be served by Lecturer?

Steve, Beamer is very powerful for advanced users. For a basic user, you have to
be happy with the existing styles and themes it provides. If you read
LecturerDemo- files in the documentation of Lecturer, you will agree that it
is very straightforward to place things (graphics, texts) anywhere on the slide
(along the line of pdfpages). I would say it suits more to teachers for
delivering lectures.

 You can probably start with a layout file we already have and modify it. 
 Ask questions here if you get stuck.

Thanks for your replies so far.
I figured out, that the problem is the ctable... Does anyone has a solution for 
converting ctables? An image would be ok...

 to OpenDocument, open it with OpenOffice and save it as a word document. But 
 the export function just produces a corrupt ODF file.
 Does anyone have a good suggestion, besides write my text in Word?
 
 The oolatex converter doesn't do a very good job with complex documents. 
 There are other routes you can try, e.g., exporting to HTML and importing 
 that into OOo. If you use the LyXHTML export with MathML, that may preserve 
 your formluae. I don't know. Yet another option is to export to RTF, using 
 the latex2rtf converter, but that probably won't do much with formulae.

I also need to do this, primarily for scientific journals that accept only

I've tried exporting to html (by several methods), then importing the html
into Microsoft Word.  This can work pretty well for text and tables,
moderately well for bibliographic citations (depends a lot on what bib style
files you use) and for figure captions (the figures themselves are expected

be OK, but complex equations are sure to fail.  You can use either elyxer
(with the --html flag) or the export to html (not xhtml) native to Lyx 2.0.
Note that any limitations are *not* the fault of html converters (which work
remarkably well for their intended purpose), but are the result of limitations
in Word's ability to take html as an input format.

For equations, the only thing I've found that almost works is tex2word
(just Google it).  This is a commercial program that only runs on Windows,
but fills a real need for me, so much so that I have a virtual Windows
machine that I use pretty much just for that purpose.  The program is
limited (it doesn't recognize all latex packages, and you often have to
manually tweak the latex file you give it), but the support staff is
quite helpful and nothing else [that I have tried] comes close if you
have lots of equations.  (You do also need to have MathType, which means
yet more money.) One thing missing from tex2word, but promised soon, is
natbib support.  Also, tables are far from perfect -- I've gone to the
trouble of converting tables via html, and the rest of a manuscript via
tex2wordsigh.

[The pain is that, almost inevitably, the equations are going to manually
re-typeset by the publisher anyway, so a difficult (and error-prone)
conversion to .doc is just a waste of everyone's time.  I know of cases where
journals demanded .doc format, only to convert back to latex to actually
typset the article.  But authors are often powerless to fight city hall.]

Spell cheking grrr! ;-)

2011-09-19 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hi,

I am using Lyx 2.0.1 under OSX. I have started to type a document. The
document is in French, but I have forgotten first to switch the
document properties/Language from English to French. After two
paragraphs I woke up and done the change, but now it continues to
check the first paragraphs in English, whatever I try... I have
selected all paragraphs + right-click + Language+Français, but it
continues to indicate English at the bottom of the screen.

I have also tried to do it paragraph by paragraph, but without any
success. It continues to think that the text is in English.

Moreover, I have also tried to choose Français as language in
Tools/Spell-check but it switches by itself to English as soon as
raise the mouse button in the selection box.

What is the magic way of asking to Lyx to set the language to the one
we select? Is there a way?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

changes it for the currently selected word only.

They are located inside the software package. The current state

/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/templates)

Another option is to modify the path in preferences and set it to

Thank Stephan for the suggestion, but this is the first thing I have
tried. Thinking about it, maybe this operation has created this
confusion, given that at the moment of the operation, part of my
document was in English, and the rest in Français. Maybe giving a
global common language has posed a problem to Lyx (is English stronger
that Français^2?  :-)  )?

This kind of operation should be quite simple and reliable in a word

(since we can have paragraphs in another language, deliberately put in
the document), but marking a paragraph manually with a language should
reliably work IMHO. This is a bug I imagine.

LyX on Mac 10.4

2011-09-19 Thread Tommaso Cucinotta

Hi all,

I'm forwarding the experienced problems of a colleague of mine trying to 
use LyX 2.0.0 on a Mac -- I don't know whether these are known issues 
and have been fixed, or if it's useful to report them.


Bye,

T.

When I open lyx v2.0 on my mac os 10.4, I get the following message:

Lyx will only have minimum functionality because no textclasses have 
been found. You can either try to reconfigure Lyx normally, try to 
reconfigure without checking your Latex installation, or continue


There are three options: reconfigure, without latex, and continue. No 
matter what I choose although I don't get any error messages,  when Lyx 
starts the functions for compiling and viewing the pdf are disabled. 
Also, there are no options under Export.


I tried to google this problem, but couldn't find something relevant.  
Maybe it has to do with the fact that I still using mac os 10.4.


I didn't have this problem on my windows pc.

Anyway, after exporting the paper in lyx 1.6, I was able to compile it

Allowing dummy scroll at the end of a document

2011-09-19 Thread Joon Ro

Hi,

I don't know what is the terminology for this, but it would be great if  
LyX allows a document to scroll a little bit even though there is no  
lines. For example, when I write down a document, I can comfortably type  
until the number of lines increases and the cursor goes to the bottom of  
the screen. At that stage, as long as I'm adding new lines, the cursor  
stays at the bottom of the screen, and it is not comfortable for my eyes.  
I would want LyX to scroll the document a little bit, so I can have the  
cursor at the middle of the screen even though it is on the last line of  
the document.


Maybe LyX can maintain about a half page dummy gray area after end of the  
document so I can scroll a little bit. Now in order to do so I'm typing a  
lot of one character and enter to have some space shown under the cursor.


Hopefully this explains what I'm talking about.

OT: checked box symbol

Hello
This is slightly off topic. I'm looking for a (decent) LaTeX symbol
that would display a box that contains a check mark. I looked into the

\CheckedBox in 'wasysym' and \Checkedbox in 'marvosym', both sloppy
executions (to my taste). I could use XeTeX and insert the Unicode

If the Windows environment in question has a xetex engine and a font that

If I select whole chapter in outline and then want to move it into

It tells, that at this stage, LaTeX does not know the command \unit.

Did you type this command in your document or did LyX insert it?

Did you manually load the package unit.sty (in the user preamble)?
Did you use a module?

It only deletes what it inserts. Also, if you remove a module, LyX will/can
typically not remove code that depends on this module.

Also, if you move a file from one computer to another, LyX will not remove
code that relies on packages only present on the first...

Do you know if I could continue using Palatino (Palladio) in my
document (with LM for the rest), while randomly inserting Unicode
chars like this that would use an OpenType font? I'd like to keep
working with Palatino.

However, to answer your question, the Windows environment on the other
side of my laptop is badly out of date and features MiKTeX 2.8 (which
complains when trying to compile with XeTeX) and a broken Sweave
installation (I still haven't figured what I managed to break when
upgrading R). Since when using Windows I'm anyways mainly relying on
TeXLive on Xubuntu on a Virtual Machine, I may just go haywire and
experiment with LyX with TL on Windows.

Maybe you (or someone else) just wants to put that part of the chapter

How would LyX know to differentiate?






Maybe I am wrong, but I think whole chapter should go there and branch

In your case I'd make a master document where all the chapter files are 
'included', and some of the includes (little gray boxes) are put in 
branches.

Or, just start writing a new chapter already in a branch box.

You should install a LaTeX package mathdots. In my case (Fedora Linux,

Hi,

Using the "normal" Palatino font, I can get the checkboxes (3 states of 
them) using the insert->special characters->symbols... (in the 
"miscellaneous symbols" category).


When using xetex/luatex (documents-> settings-> fonts), and choosing 
"Palatina Lynotype" font, they are replaced by a spiral in the pdf. 
Probably they are not available in that font, because they work fine 
with Deja Vu Sans.


Best regards.

Steve, Beamer is very powerful for advanced users. For a basic user, you have to
be happy with the existing styles and themes it provides. If you read
"LecturerDemo-" files in the documentation of Lecturer, you will agree that it
is very straightforward to place things (graphics, texts) anywhere on the slide

delivering lectures.

I also need to do this, primarily for scientific journals that accept only
".doc" files (i.e. the older Word format).  At least in my field (chemistry
and biology), there are a lot of journals like this.

I've tried exporting to html (by several methods), then importing the html
into Microsoft Word.  This can work pretty well for text and tables,
moderately well for bibliographic citations (depends a lot on what bib style
files you use) and for figure captions (the figures themselves are expected
by the journals I use to be in separate files anyway).  Simple equations can
be OK, but complex equations are sure to fail.  You can use either elyxer
(with the --html flag) or the export to html (not xhtml) native to Lyx 2.0.
Note that any limitations are *not* the fault of html converters (which work
remarkably well for their intended purpose), but are the result of limitations
in Word's ability to take html as an input format.

For equations, the only thing I've found that "almost" works is tex2word
(just Google it).  This is a commercial program that only runs on Windows,
but fills a real need for me, so much so that I have a virtual Windows
machine that I use pretty much just for that purpose.  The program is
limited (it doesn't recognize all latex packages, and you often have to
manually tweak the latex file you give it), but the support staff is
quite helpful and nothing else [that I have tried] comes close if you
have lots of equations.  (You do also need to have MathType, which means
yet more money.) One thing missing from tex2word, but promised "soon", is
natbib support.  Also, tables are far from perfect -- I've gone to the
trouble of converting tables via html, and the rest of a manuscript via
tex2wordsigh.

[The "pain" is that, almost inevitably, the equations are going to manually
re-typeset by the publisher anyway, so a difficult (and error-prone)
conversion to .doc is just a waste of everyone's time.  I know of cases where
journals demanded .doc format, only to convert back to latex to actually
typset the article.  But authors are often powerless to "fight city hall".]

Spell cheking grrr! ;-)

2011-09-19 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hi,

I am using Lyx 2.0.1 under OSX. I have started to type a document. The
document is in French, but I have forgotten first to switch the
document properties/Language from English to French. After two
paragraphs I woke up and done the change, but now it continues to
check the first paragraphs in English, whatever I try... I have
selected all paragraphs + right-click + Language+Français, but it
continues to indicate English at the bottom of the screen.

I have also tried to do it paragraph by paragraph, but without any
success. It continues to think that the text is in English.

Moreover, I have also tried to choose Français as language in
Tools/Spell-check but it switches by itself to English as soon as
raise the mouse button in the selection box.

What is the magic way of asking to Lyx to set the language to the one
we select? Is there a way?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

I think it should work to change the language of the document and/or
the language of some paragraph. Changing the language in the spell checker

The same problem happens! Even if I choose Paste Special/Unformatted text.

Even worst. I have changed individually all the offending words to
French (with a right-click+Language). The paragraph was looking OK (no
underlined word). Then I have chosen the whole paragraph and selected
French as the Language and Bang! English has came back. I am
completely puzzled on this case... I know that British are well
reputed for their resistance (against Hitler's bombs, for example),
but this is stronger than their reputation ;-)

Thanks Stephan, your tip explains why I get the English again in the
spell check box. At least this mystery has been solved :-)

Missing templates

2011-09-19 Thread Anders Host-Madsen
I use LyX 2.0 on Mac. But I cannot find any templates.
One one computer I installed on top of LyX 1.6, on the other
computer it was a fresh install of 2.0. In either, no templates.
What can I do?

I propose to mark the whole document and change the language to French.
I really can understand your distress... I think the default document
language is surprising at least for all non-english users. Especially,
when there is made such a great afford to provide an user interface
matching the users language environment.

They are located inside the software package. The current state
is to either copy them from there (e. g. 
/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/templates)
to ~/Library/Application Support/LyX/templates

Another option is to modify the path in preferences and set it to
${LyXDir}/Resources/templates (${LyXDir} will be replaced by the correct value).

Thank Stephan for the suggestion, but this is the first thing I have
tried. Thinking about it, maybe this operation has created this
confusion, given that at the moment of the operation, part of my
document was in English, and the rest in Français. Maybe giving a
global common language has posed a problem to Lyx (is English stronger
that Français^2?  :-)  )?

This kind of operation should be quite simple and reliable in a word
processor I think. I understand that changing the language of the
document should not change the language of already written paragraphs
(since we can have paragraphs in another language, deliberately put in
the document), but marking a paragraph manually with a language should
reliably work IMHO. This is a bug I imagine.

1/ I have created a new document the default language of which was English;
2/ I have written two paragraphs in French in it, then I have seen the

3/ I have opened the document properties and switched the language to Français;
4/ I have written other paragraphs in French, it was OK.

10/ The problem persisted.

So, I do not know what happens. When I have finished this urgent
document, I will check the content of the .lyx file to try to
understand what is wrong with this file.

If you have any other idea in the mean time...
Concerning only two paragraphs, my specific problem is not important,
but I have the impression that it is more general and could be meet
for bigger chunks of text. In which case, that could be much more
painful.

LyX on Mac 10.4

2011-09-19 Thread Tommaso Cucinotta

Hi all,

I'm forwarding the experienced problems of a colleague of mine trying to 
use LyX 2.0.0 on a Mac -- I don't know whether these are known issues 
and have been fixed, or if it's useful to report them.


Bye,

T.

When I open lyx v2.0 on my mac os 10.4, I get the following message:

"Lyx will only have minimum functionality because no textclasses have 
been found. You can either try to reconfigure Lyx normally, try to 
reconfigure without checking your Latex installation, or continue"


There are three options: reconfigure, without latex, and continue. No 
matter what I choose although I don't get any error messages,  when Lyx 
starts the functions for compiling and viewing the pdf are disabled. 
Also, there are no options under Export.


I tried to google this problem, but couldn't find something relevant.  
Maybe it has to do with the fact that I still using mac os 10.4.


I didn't have this problem on my windows pc.

Anyway, after exporting the paper in lyx 1.6, I was able to compile it 
using the lyx 1.6 installation on my mac. However, when I tried to 
launch the spellchecker I received the following error message:


"The spellchecker could not be started. Lyx: Failed to start ispell!"

If I understand correctly you did manage to write many other
paragraphs that are correctly marked in French. Then you could simply
copy/paste the first two paragraphs to any plain text editor, create a
new paragraph in LyX that is marked with the correct language
(anywhere in the text), copy/paste the text from the text editor, and
then move it to the correct position in the document.

Allowing "dummy" scroll at the end of a document

2011-09-19 Thread Joon Ro

Hi,

I don't know what is the terminology for this, but it would be great if  
LyX allows a document to scroll a little bit even though there is no  
lines. For example, when I write down a document, I can comfortably type  
until the number of lines increases and the cursor goes to the bottom of  
the screen. At that stage, as long as I'm adding new lines, the cursor  
stays at the bottom of the screen, and it is not comfortable for my eyes.  
I would want LyX to scroll the document a little bit, so I can have the  
cursor at the middle of the screen even though it is on the last line of  
the document.


Maybe LyX can maintain about a half page dummy gray area after end of the  
document so I can scroll a little bit. Now in order to do so I'm typing a  
lot of one character and enter to have some space shown under the cursor.


Hopefully this explains what I'm talking about.

There are a few bugs around concerning the change of a language, you've
probably encountered some of them:
