 Hi
 
 I just discovered pandoc, and I use it to convert to odt format (and then in 
 OpenOffice to 
 doc).
 
 The conversion goes LyX -  LyXHTML -  odt
 
 I defined the following format:
 
 \format odt lo odt Libreoffice writer  libreoffice libreoffice 
 document,menu=export
 
 and the following converter:
 
 \converter xhtml odt lo pandoc -o $$o $$i 
 
 How much better is this than simply exporting LyXHTML and then opening the 
 resulting file in 
 LibreOffice?

Well - LibreOffice gives an error when trying to open the xhtml file, and I 
can't open it in my
browser either (seems to be corrupt for this document?). Another document, 
produces an empty
output when opening the xhml in LibreOffice.

 
 There's no reason we couldn't add this as a converter. File a bug to remind 
 me if you like.
 

I t'll add it top #6042 as Liviu pointed out.

Would be great if pandoc converter could be added, as it seems to be quite 
robust in handling even
corrupt xhtml files.

Cheers,

 I want to personally congratulate Mr Andrew Parsloe for this piece of
 art. It's outstanding and is what I'm looking for a few days ago, there
 are off course some issues I want to discuss:

 1. when you import from BibTeX the coding as \textsc{} or \'{} are
 imported as text, I know this is a first approximation but it will be
 desirable that all the coding are imported as their meaning (to
 acomplish LyX phylosophy) and then exported again as coding. I mean 
when
 you have an accronym ABCD then the exported line should be 
\textsc{ABCD}

 and when you have accents like ó then the exported character should be
 \'{o}, and so on.

Thanks for the kind comments. I did wonder about importing the bib 
files as LaTeX files so that commands like \textsc{blahblah} meant 
blahblah was displayed as small caps in LyX, and correspondingly, 
exporting as LaTeX so that the reverse happened, but it seemed *much* 
more complicated: some formatting, like the small caps, to be 
translated into LaTeX,  some formatting, like the list environments 
used for the overall display of the records, not to be translated into 
LaTeX. A few thoughts of this kind convinced me that converting to and 
from *text* rather than LaTeX was the way to go (i.e. was within my 
technical competence).

Ok, but is still posible to do, perhaps in the future someone can.


 2. It will be desirable to have the standard sections of a bibliography
 in the definitions, so when you add a new reference you must just only
 fill the sections such as author, journal, title, and so on.

If you mean having a blank record available like

@book{,
author = {},
title = {},
...

Yes this is what I meant


then you could create one in a yellow note (or a deactivated branch) 
and simply copy and paste as required. In biblatex there are so many 
possible fields that having a blank record containing all 
possibilities would be a hindrance rather than a help. I found it 
helpful to associate a shortcut key (Ctrl+=) with
Yes, there are many posibilities but there are also some of them that 
are mandatory (author, title, year, for articles journal, for books 
editor, and so on). I will try on yellow notes and I tell you later what 
I get.


command-sequence self-insert  = {},; char-left; char-left;

which inserts ={}, and puts the cursor between the braces, waiting for 
stuff to be typed.

Re: Regenerating Lilypond files

2012-04-17 Thread John McKay
Yeah, I actually tried things like this.  It doesn't seem to work.  Even if you 
actually modify the file and then change it back, LyX still knows that the 
file hasn't changed.

So, I don't think whatever decision LyX is making is based on the modification 
timestamp.  That would seem to be the easiest way to implement something like 
this, but LyX seems to use other criteria... anyone know what those criteria 
are?

Or, better yet, a way to just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all inset files?

I am working on a large project involving hundreds of musical examples typeset

I have run into one issue.  LyX seems to know if a Lilypond file hasn't 
changed since the last output PDF was generated.  If the Lilypond file hasn't 
changed, it doesn't run Lilypond again.



In most circumstances, I can see how this is desirable.



However, I need to know how to get LyX to regenerate ALL Lilypond files if I 
want to, even if the file LyX actually sees hasn't changed.



Basically, since the structure of my musical examples is so complex, I have 
taken to separating some general formatting instructions and the actual musical 
data into separate files.  These are loaded in the header of the Lilypond file 
that LyX actually sees, which is mostly a dummy file that sets up the score for 
the actual LyX example.





So, if I make changes to the actual notes of my file or to the general 
formatting header file for my examples, the file LyX sees usually doesn't 
change.  Yet, I still need LyX to re-run Lilypond sometimes.



I don't need this to happen all the time, but is there a command or a way to 
just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all external material insets if I want a 
complete wipe?



(I've noticed various ways of hacking this, like deleting an external material 
insertion and reinstating it in LyX, or adding an unnecessary blank comment 
line to my dummy files so LyX detects a change, but these sorts of things are 
obviously annoying when dealing with hundreds of Lilypond files.)





Thanks for any suggestions!

 As to the text formatting, it's supposed to be plain - no bolds,

 horizontal lines above and below the section titles... (been looking for

 Thus no problem as to Class, pretty much anything plain page would do.

 Maybe Memoir will be the fix. I've tried  Koma, all sorts of plain and
 some other assorted (my code was hacked out of hollywood...), but never
 Memoir.  I'll get into it right now.

 You can also do it with standard classes and the titlesec package
 (which is not really compatible with memoir). See attached example. If
 you have section headings, however, paragraphs numbers will not be
 reset for every section. Is that what you need?  Resetting counters
 can  be managed, I think, but off the top of my head I don't remember
 how to do it automatically.
 BTW, in the attached example, the spacing between the para label and
 the main text (which is set in the preamble), should probably be
 tweaked to get a natural looking feel. See titlesec's manual for
 details.
 Your specs are also not very clear about the parindent. Is the number
 indented as well or just the paragraph text? At any rate, either
 behavior is easy to do with memoir or the titlesec package.

 BTW, I see you're Aggie, Stefano, I am located in Austin myself.

Lyx will produce a LaTeX2e file IF you export the file as such:

It will produce a will with extension .tex in the same directory as

Ahh, that's trickier. You need to run latex and then bibtex on your
file (assuming you're using bibtex, instead of its later replacements
like biblatex and stuff). After you've done that, you'll find a file
with extension .bbl.
Append the content of that file to your tex file and you're in
business. You can even do insert everything into you lyx file as
explained here: http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/AcmSigplan (look at the
Including bibliography entries in LyX file section).

Notice, however, that Springer usually accepts submissions as .tex +
.bib files. I am not familiar with Philosophical Studies (in spite of
being a philosopher), but Springer's instructions are usually very
clear. Perhaps they want you to to combine the .tex and .bib file into
a zipped archive?

like biblatex and stuff). After you've done that, you'll find a file
with extension .bbl.
Append the content of that file to your tex file and you're in
business. You can even do insert everything into you lyx file as
explained here: http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/AcmSigplan (look at the
Including bibliography entries in LyX file section).

Notice, however, that Springer usually accepts submissions as .tex +
.bib files. I am not familiar with Philosophical Studies (in spite of
being a philosopher), but Springer's instructions are usually very
clear. Perhaps they want you to to combine the .tex and .bib file into
a zipped archive?

There's a Python script included with LyX that will do this for you.

Thanks Stefano,

It worked, but I now have another problem.  The Springer web site has
accepted the .tex file that you helped me create, but when I look at the
contents of that file on their web site (in order to give it my Final
Approval) the references do not show up.  (There's no list of references at
the end of my paper, and all the little reference items in the text or the
paper appear as [?], rather than as [7], etc.) I suppose this is because the
references are in a BibTeX Generated Bibliography, as it says at the end
of my .lyx file.  How do I get that to Springer so that the two files will
work together to make the references to appear as they should?

 mb...@xs4all.nl suggested this:

Hi,

How do I create a footer on every page of my document? I'm using the 
book document class and have a \rfoot{xxx} in my preamble, but the 
footer is only displayed on the first page.

Regards,

Marco

I've been watching this thread, hoping that someone might come up with
something that works.

I doubt this will help. But I use this format in letter
(KOMA-Script v.2)

\firstfoot{the stuff I want in it}

This will place the footer at the bottom of the first page where logos
and headings and such are, but not on any pages after that.

Just thought it might help. As well as the above I also tried adding:

\rfoot{the stuff I want in it}

But with both those footer commands in the letter environment preamble
coughs up errors.

In fact \cfoot{the stuff I want in it} won't work at all in the letter
environment preamble, I have to use: \firstfoot

But it might work for you?

Be well,
Charlie

Copy/Paste problems with Lyx 2.0.x

2012-04-17 Thread Reimar Pfeil
Hi all,

I'm using  Lyx 2.0.3 on a Windows 7 Pro 64 system and i have some serious
problems with copy/paste: I often can't copy/paste floating objects (Lyx
refuses to paste the object if i press ctrl+v), cross references,  labels
or formulae (lyx inserts them as plain text) within the _same_ document. I
recently updated Lyx from 2.0.1 to 2.0.3, but the problem still exists.
Sometimes it helps to close lyx or even restart the pc, then copy/paste
works properly again.
So far i found nothing about this in the archives and only some postings
in other forums:
http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19t=19635
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/43149/copy-and-paste-disabled-in-lyx-2-0
In the latter, it is claimed that it might be an issue with the 64bit
Windows. Is this true? Is there chance that this bug is resolved soon?

Cheers,
Reimar

I don't (not that I've ever tried any bibliography manager) but it is 
better than editing a bibliography in a text editor, which is what I 
used before. So why don't I get Mendeley (or whatever)? There are many 
answers to that: life is short and there are lots of things I want to 
learn other than new software; I already know how to use LyX, I don't 
know how to use Mendeley; my needs in this area are likely to be 
sporadic at most --  plenty of time between uses to forget how to use 
unfamiliar software.


The same kind of issue arose last year in relation to spreadsheet 
capabilities for LyX. I've spent considerable effort getting the LaTeX 
spreadtab package to work harmoniously with LyX. It means now that on 
those sporadic occasions when I have columns of figures to add up (for 
the accountant for instance), I can stay with familiar software -- LyX 
-- to do something that simply doesn't require the heavy machinery of 
Gnumeric, and trying to remember how to use it. (The struggle -- even 
anguish? -- of the LyX developers getting to grips with git has been 
fascinating to observe.)


Once one has moved out of the professional or academic environment, the 
need for professional software in many secondary fields evaporates. All 
one needs is something with which one is familiar and that will do an 
adequate job on those sporadic occasions when it is called for.


A bit of a rant, I know, but it touches a sensitive spot with me (but 
thanks for the question).

used for the overall display of the records, not to be translated into 
LaTeX. A few thoughts of this kind convinced me that converting to and 
from *text* rather than LaTeX was the way to go (i.e. was within my 
technical competence).

Ok, but is still posible to do, perhaps in the future someone can.


 2. It will be desirable to have the standard sections of a bibliography
 in the definitions, so when you add a new reference you must just only
 fill the sections such as author, journal, title, and so on.

If you mean having a blank record available like

@book{,
author = {},
title = {},
...

Yes this is what I meant


then you could create one in a yellow note (or a deactivated branch) 
and simply copy and paste as required. In biblatex there are so many 
possible fields that having a blank record containing all 
possibilities would be a hindrance rather than a help. I found it 
helpful to associate a shortcut key (Ctrl+=) with
Yes, there are many posibilities but there are also some of them that 
are mandatory (author, title, year, for articles journal, for books 
editor, and so on). I will try on yellow notes and I tell you later what 
I get.


command-sequence self-insert  = {},; char-left; char-left;

which inserts ={}, and puts the cursor between the braces, waiting for 
stuff to be typed.

Re: Using LyX to edit organise bibliographies

Excuse me for not trying what you've done, but I have to ask first: why
do you think this is better than using Mendeley, for instance, or some

Tha answer to this is easy, because LyX can actually do it, is just a 
matter of correct implementation. Secondly, why should I move out of LyX 
to edit my Bib files?  Is not LyX a full text editor? Right now it 
isn't, because of some deficiencies like this that can be solved.


I don't (not that I've ever tried any bibliography manager) but it is 
better than editing a bibliography in a text editor, which is what I 
used before. So why don't I get Mendeley (or whatever)? There are many 
answers to that: life is short and there are lots of things I want to 
learn other than new software; I already know how to use LyX, I don't 
know how to use Mendeley; my needs in this area are likely to be 
sporadic at most --  plenty of time between uses to forget how to use 
unfamiliar software.

I'm fully agree with you


The same kind of issue arose last year in relation to spreadsheet 
capabilities for LyX. I've spent considerable effort getting the LaTeX 
spreadtab package to work harmoniously with LyX. It means now that on 
those sporadic occasions when I have columns of figures to add up (for 
the accountant for instance), I can stay with familiar software -- LyX 
-- to do something that simply doesn't require the heavy machinery of 
Gnumeric, and trying to remember how to use it. (The struggle -- even 
anguish? -- of the LyX developers getting to grips with git has been 
fascinating to observe.)


Once one has moved out of the professional or academic environment, 
the need for professional software in many secondary fields 
evaporates. All one needs is something with which one is familiar and 
that will do an adequate job on those sporadic occasions when it is 
called for.
And this is the reason why most scientist, authors and redactors want 
something like LyX, because it allows you to focus in content and not in 
the edition. The same applies for most softwares.


A bit of a rant, I know, but it touches a sensitive spot with me (but 
thanks for the question).

Re: Regenerating Lilypond files

2012-04-17 Thread John McKay
Yeah, I actually tried things like this.  It doesn't seem to work.  Even if you 
actually modify the file and then change it back, LyX still knows that the 
file hasn't changed.

So, I don't think whatever decision LyX is making is based on the modification 
timestamp.  That would seem to be the easiest way to implement something like 
this, but LyX seems to use other criteria... anyone know what those criteria 
are?

Or, better yet, a way to just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all inset files?

I have run into one issue.  LyX seems to know if a Lilypond file hasn't

changed, it doesn't run Lilypond again.



In most circumstances, I can see how this is desirable.



However, I need to know how to get LyX to regenerate ALL Lilypond files if I 
want to, even if the file LyX actually sees hasn't changed.



Basically, since the structure of my musical examples is so complex, I have 
taken to separating some general formatting instructions and the actual musical 
data into separate files.  These are loaded in the header of the Lilypond file 
that LyX actually sees, which is mostly a dummy file that sets up the score for 
the actual LyX example.





So, if I make changes to the actual notes of my file or to the general 
formatting header file for my examples, the file LyX sees usually doesn't 
change.  Yet, I still need LyX to re-run Lilypond sometimes.



I don't need this to happen all the time, but is there a command or a way to 
just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all external material insets if I want a 
complete wipe?



(I've noticed various ways of hacking this, like deleting an external material 
insertion and reinstating it in LyX, or adding an unnecessary blank comment 
line to my dummy files so LyX detects a change, but these sorts of things are 
obviously annoying when dealing with hundreds of Lilypond files.)





Thanks for any suggestions!






spell checker problem

Hi, I'm not able to use the spell checker for Spanish.

 You can also do it with standard classes and the titlesec package

 you have section headings, however, paragraphs numbers will not be
 reset for every section. Is that what you need?  Resetting counters

 how to do it automatically.
 BTW, in the attached example, the spacing between the para label and
 the main text (which is set in the preamble), should probably be
 tweaked to get a natural looking feel. See titlesec's manual for
 details.
 Your specs are also not very clear about the parindent. Is the number
 indented as well or just the paragraph text? At any rate, either
 behavior is easy to do with memoir or the titlesec package.

Lyx will produce a LaTeX2e file IF you export the file as such:

It will produce a will with extension .tex in the same directory as

Notice that the .lyx file that you open in Lyx is not latex and will

 Stefano,

 I don't know what you mean when you say I should run latex and then bibtex
 on your

 FileExportLatex(plain) instruction.  So I now have both a .lyx and a
 .tex version of my file.  I am using bibtex, by the way.


I meant you need to run the latex program on the .tex file you
exported from Lyx. How to do that depends (slightly) on which platform
you work on.
But forget about that: I just checked the Springer instructions for
Philosophical studies,  and, as I suspected, they accept multi-file
manuscript zipped into a single archive. So my suggestion is to avoid
the complications of extracting the references and instead pack both
your lyx-exported .tex file and your bibliography (in a bib file) into
a single archive and then upload that.
How to do that, again, depends on your platform. If you are on Windows
there are many utilities that allow you to create zip archives. I
don't use Windows, so I can't be precise, but I vaguely remember a
program called  WinZip that did just that. Windows users on this list
may provide more specific advice.
On lInux, you'd just use the zip command from the command line. Open a
terminal window, move to the directory where your tex and bib files
are:

$cd /my/working/directory

and then issue the zip command:

$zip my_manuscript_archive my_file.tex my_references.bib

that will produce a file called  my_manuscript_archive.zip, which you
can then upload to the Springer site

On the Mac, you can do the same thing, I believe. Mac users may want
to provide more specific advice.

Note that Springer usually requires that your .bib file contains only
the references you use in your manuscript. If you have a  bib file

Re: Will LyX produce a LaTeX2E or TeX file?

Thanks Stefano,

I now seem to be tantalizingly close to creating a zip folder (or zip
archive?) to send to Philosophical Studies.  I've created a .bib file that
contains only the references I use in my paper, but this file is inside the
Mendeley Desktop. And I *cannot* move it to any other location.  So in
particular I can't get it into the folder that contains the .tex file of my
manuscript.  If only I could do that, I think I would be able to apply
WinZip to create the zipped entity (file?, folder?, archive?) I need, which
I could then send to Philosophical Studies.

I'm in philosophy at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, by the

  I don't know what you mean when you say I should run latex and then

  FileExportLatex(plain) instruction.  So I now have both a .lyx and
 a
  .tex version of my file.  I am using bibtex, by the way.
 

 I meant you need to run the latex program on the .tex file you
 exported from Lyx. How to do that depends (slightly) on which platform
 you work on.
 But forget about that: I just checked the Springer instructions for
 Philosophical studies,  and, as I suspected, they accept multi-file
 manuscript zipped into a single archive. So my suggestion is to avoid
 the complications of extracting the references and instead pack both
 your lyx-exported .tex file and your bibliography (in a bib file) into
 a single archive and then upload that.
 How to do that, again, depends on your platform. If you are on Windows
 there are many utilities that allow you to create zip archives. I
 don't use Windows, so I can't be precise, but I vaguely remember a
 program called  WinZip that did just that. Windows users on this list
 may provide more specific advice.
 On lInux, you'd just use the zip command from the command line. Open a
 terminal window, move to the directory where your tex and bib files
 are:

 $cd /my/working/directory

 and then issue the zip command:

 $zip my_manuscript_archive my_file.tex my_references.bib

 that will produce a file called  my_manuscript_archive.zip, which you
 can then upload to the Springer site

 On the Mac, you can do the same thing, I believe. Mac users may want
 to provide more specific advice.

 Note that Springer usually requires that your .bib file contains only
 the references you use in your manuscript. If you have a  bib file
 with other references (as most people do), you should save it as a new
 file and then eliminate all the extra references (how to do that
 depends on which software you use to manage your references).

 mb...@xs4all.nl suggested this:

Hi,

How do I create a footer on every page of my document? I'm using the 
book document class and have a \rfoot{xxx} in my preamble, but the 
footer is only displayed on the first page.

Regards,

Marco

I've been watching this thread, hoping that someone might come up with
something that works.

I doubt this will help. But I use this format in letter
(KOMA-Script v.2)

\firstfoot{the stuff I want in it}

This will place the footer at the bottom of the first page where logos
and headings and such are, but not on any pages after that.

Just thought it might help. As well as the above I also tried adding:

\rfoot{the stuff I want in it}

But with both those footer commands in the letter environment preamble
coughs up errors.

In fact \cfoot{the stuff I want in it} won't work at all in the letter
environment preamble, I have to use: \firstfoot

But it might work for you?

Be well,
Charlie

Copy/Paste problems with Lyx 2.0.x

2012-04-17 Thread Reimar Pfeil
Hi all,

I'm using  Lyx 2.0.3 on a Windows 7 Pro 64 system and i have some serious
problems with copy/paste: I often can't copy/paste floating objects (Lyx
refuses to paste the object if i press ctrl+v), cross references,  labels
or formulae (lyx inserts them as plain text) within the _same_ document. I
recently updated Lyx from 2.0.1 to 2.0.3, but the problem still exists.
Sometimes it helps to close lyx or even restart the pc, then copy/paste
works properly again.
So far i found nothing about this in the archives and only some postings
in other forums:
http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19t=19635
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/43149/copy-and-paste-disabled-in-lyx-2-0
In the latter, it is claimed that it might be an issue with the 64bit
Windows. Is this true? Is there chance that this bug is resolved soon?

Cheers,
Reimar

I am always hesitant about keybindings since I never know If I'm using

F12 as David does since F12 is used for another  software that runs on

Well - LibreOffice gives an error when trying to open the xhtml file, and I 
can't open it in my

Would be great if pandoc converter could be added, as it seems to be quite

I don't (not that I've ever tried any bibliography manager) but it is

The same kind of issue arose last year in relation to spreadsheet

-- to do something that simply doesn't require the heavy machinery of 
Gnumeric, and trying to remember how to use it. (The struggle -- even 
anguish? -- of the LyX developers getting to grips with git has been 
fascinating to observe.)


Once one has moved out of the professional or academic environment, the 
need for professional software in many secondary fields evaporates. All 
one needs is something with which one is familiar and that will do an 
adequate job on those sporadic occasions when it is called for.

Hi

I just discovered pandoc, and I use it to convert to odt format (and then in 
OpenOffice to
doc).

The conversion goes LyX ->   LyXHTML ->   odt

I defined the following format:

\format "odt lo" "odt" "Libreoffice writer" "" "libreoffice" "libreoffice"
"document,menu=export"

and the following converter:

\converter "xhtml" "odt lo" "pandoc -o $$o $$i" ""


How much better is this than simply exporting LyXHTML and then opening the

Well - LibreOffice gives an error when trying to open the xhtml file, and I

Another document, produces an empty output when opening the xhml in LibreOffice.

There are definitely still bugs in the exporter, especially with more 
complicated documents. I think longer term maybe HTML5 would be a better 
target, as it's more robust.

Thanks for the kind comments. I did wonder about importing the bib 
files as LaTeX files so that commands like \textsc{blahblah} meant 
blahblah was displayed as small caps in LyX, and correspondingly, 
exporting as LaTeX so that the reverse happened, but it seemed *much* 
more complicated: some formatting, like the small caps, to be 
translated into LaTeX,  some formatting, like the list environments 
used for the overall display of the records, not to be translated into 
LaTeX. A few thoughts of this kind convinced me that converting to and 
from *text* rather than LaTeX was the way to go (i.e. was within my 
technical competence).

Ok, but is still posible to do, perhaps in the future someone can.

If you mean having a blank record available like

Yes this is what I meant


then you could create one in a yellow note (or a deactivated branch) 
and simply copy and paste as required. In biblatex there are so many 
possible fields that having a blank record containing all 
possibilities would be a hindrance rather than a help. I found it 
helpful to associate a shortcut key (Ctrl+=) with
Yes, there are many posibilities but there are also some of them that 
are mandatory (author, title, year, for articles journal, for books 
editor, and so on). I will try on yellow notes and I tell you later what 
I get.


command-sequence self-insert  = {},; char-left; char-left;

which inserts ={}, and puts the cursor between the braces, waiting for

Re: Regenerating Lilypond files

2012-04-17 Thread John McKay
Yeah, I actually tried things like this.  It doesn't seem to work.  Even if you 
actually modify the file and then change it back, LyX still "knows" that the 
file hasn't "changed."

So, I don't think whatever decision LyX is making is based on the modification 
timestamp.  That would seem to be the easiest way to implement something like 
this, but LyX seems to use other criteria... anyone know what those criteria 
are?

Or, better yet, a way to just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all inset files?

I am working on a large project involving hundreds of musical examples typeset

I have run into one issue.  LyX seems to "know" if a Lilypond file hasn't 
changed since the last output PDF was generated.  If the Lilypond file hasn't 
changed, it doesn't run Lilypond again.



In most circumstances, I can see how this is desirable.



However, I need to know how to get LyX to regenerate ALL Lilypond files if I 
want to, even if the file LyX actually sees hasn't changed.



Basically, since the structure of my musical examples is so complex, I have 
taken to separating some general formatting instructions and the actual musical 
data into separate files.  These are loaded in the header of the Lilypond file 
that LyX actually sees, which is mostly a dummy file that sets up the score for 
the actual LyX example.





So, if I make changes to the actual notes of my file or to the general 
formatting header file for my examples, the file LyX sees usually doesn't 
change.  Yet, I still need LyX to re-run Lilypond sometimes.



I don't need this to happen all the time, but is there a command or a way to 
just tell LyX to re-run Lilypond for all external material insets if I want a 
complete wipe?



(I've noticed various ways of hacking this, like deleting an external material 
insertion and reinstating it in LyX, or adding an unnecessary blank comment 
line to my dummy files so LyX detects a "change," but these sorts of things are 
obviously annoying when dealing with hundreds of Lilypond files.)





Thanks for any suggestions!

Will LyX produce a LaTeX2E or TeX file?

2012-04-17 Thread William Hanson
I'm trying to submit a manuscript via the Springer web site to one of their
journals (Philosophical Studies).  Although the web site says they accept
many formats, including LaTeX2E and TeX, it won't accept the file that LyX
has produced.  Any ideas?  (I've contacted Springer too but so far have
received no response.)

Lyx will produce a LaTeX2e file IF you export the file as such:

File>>Export>>Latex(plain)

It will produce a will with extension .tex in the same directory as
the original Lyx file.
Notice that the .lyx file that you open in Lyx is not latex and will
most likely not be accepted by Springer.

Stefano

You cannot change the document language? 
Do you refer to the drop-down menu triggered by right-button mouse click?
This should change the language of the text part you've currently selected.

Thanks Stefano,

It worked, but I now have another problem.  The Springer web site has
accepted the .tex file that you helped me create, but when I look at the
contents of that file on their web site (in order to give it my "Final
Approval") the references do not show up.  (There's no list of references
at the end of my paper, and all the little reference items in the text or
the paper appear as [?], rather than as [7], etc.) I suppose this is
because the references are in a "BibTeX Generated Bibliography", as it says
at the end of my .lyx file.  How do I get that to Springer so that the two
files will work together to make the references to appear as they
should?

Ahh, that's trickier. You need to run latex and then bibtex on your
file (assuming you're using bibtex, instead of its later replacements
like biblatex and stuff). After you've done that, you'll find a file
with extension .bbl.
Append the content of that file to your tex file and you're in
business. You can even do insert everything into you lyx file as
explained here: http://wiki.lyx.org/Examples/AcmSigplan (look at the
"Including bibliography entries in LyX file" section).

Notice, however, that Springer usually accepts submissions as .tex +
.bib files. I am not familiar with Philosophical Studies (in spite of
being a philosopher), but Springer's instructions are usually very
clear. Perhaps they want you to to combine the .tex and .bib file into
a zipped archive?

There's a Python script included with LyX that will do this for you. 
There are some remarks here:

Best would be to document it on the wiki, and use appropriate keywords
to make it easily searchable/findeable, and/or point people to it when
they inquire on the list. Unless there is a smart script that could

LaTeX classes that include a chapter environment usually format the first page

I meant you need to run the latex program on the .tex file you
exported from Lyx. How to do that depends (slightly) on which platform
you work on.
But forget about that: I just checked the Springer instructions for
Philosophical studies,  and, as I suspected, they accept multi-file
manuscript zipped into a single archive. So my suggestion is to avoid
the complications of extracting the references and instead pack both
your lyx-exported .tex file and your bibliography (in a bib file) into
a single archive and then upload that.
How to do that, again, depends on your platform. If you are on Windows
there are many utilities that allow you to create zip archives. I
don't use Windows, so I can't be precise, but I vaguely remember a
program called  WinZip that did just that. Windows users on this list
may provide more specific advice.
On lInux, you'd just use the zip command from the command line. Open a
terminal window, move to the directory where your tex and bib files
are:

$cd /my/working/directory

and then issue the zip command:

$zip my_manuscript_archive my_file.tex my_references.bib

that will produce a file called  my_manuscript_archive.zip, which you
can then upload to the Springer site

On the Mac, you can do the same thing, I believe. Mac users may want
to provide more specific advice.

Note that Springer usually requires that your .bib file contains only
the references you use in your manuscript. If you have a  bib file
with other references (as most people do), you should save it as a new
file and then eliminate all the extra references (how to do that
depends on which software you use to manage your references).

Thanks Stefano,

I now seem to be tantalizingly close to creating a zip folder (or zip
archive?) to send to Philosophical Studies.  I've created a .bib file that
contains only the references I use in my paper, but this file is inside the
Mendeley Desktop. And I *cannot* move it to any other location.  So in
particular I can't get it into the folder that contains the .tex file of my

WinZip to create the zipped entity (file?, folder?, archive?) I need, which
I could then send to Philosophical Studies.

I'm in philosophy at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, by the

I have never used Mendeley, but would this link help?

If not, I will have to defer to Mendeley users on the list.

I like Chris's work, too, even though I am in a rather different
sub-discipline (you may say I am a Continental philosopher, admitting
such a label makes any sense.)

I've been watching this thread, hoping that someone might come up with
something that works.

I doubt this will help. But I use this format in letter
(KOMA-Script v.2)

\firstfoot{the stuff I want in it}

This will place the footer at the bottom of the first page where logos
and headings and such are, but not on any pages after that.

Just thought it might help. As well as the above I also tried adding:

\rfoot{the stuff I want in it}

But with both those footer commands in the letter environment preamble
coughs up errors.

In fact \cfoot{the stuff I want in it} won't work at all in the letter
environment preamble, I have to use: \firstfoot

But it might work for you?

Be well,
Charlie

Copy/Paste problems with Lyx 2.0.x

2012-04-17 Thread Reimar Pfeil
Hi all,

I'm using  Lyx 2.0.3 on a Windows 7 Pro 64 system and i have some serious
problems with copy/paste: I often can't copy/paste floating objects (Lyx
refuses to paste the object if i press ctrl+v), cross references,  labels
or formulae (lyx inserts them as plain text) within the _same_ document. I
recently updated Lyx from 2.0.1 to 2.0.3, but the problem still exists.
Sometimes it helps to close lyx or even restart the pc, then copy/paste
works properly again.
So far i found nothing about this in the archives and only some postings
in other forums:
http://www.latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19=19635
http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/43149/copy-and-paste-disabled-in-lyx-2-0
In the latter, it is claimed that it might be an issue with the 64bit
Windows. Is this true? Is there chance that this bug is resolved soon?

Cheers,
Reimar
