 Hi all

 I've not been a LyX user for long but am going to write a 300-page academic 
 paper with it for the final typesetting and formatting. I've practised on 
 and off for the past few months but one thing that has always troubled me 
 is how I'm unable to scroll with the keyboard (up and down arrow keys). I'd 
 like to be rid of the mouse if possible.

 When I hold a particular directional key for up to 20 secs it appears to 
 work but as if it's in slow motion. Qt shouldn't be having any such 
 scrolling problem, so I haven't been able to troubleshoot this any further.

 I don't see this behavior at all.  The only thing that slows down scrolling 
 with the arrows is if the cursor enters a math formula.  Then it runs 
 through all the superscripts and subscripts, but still it is reasonably fast.

 You also might try using the Pageup and Pagedown keys.

 What system are you using?  Mine is debian testing (a linux variant), on a 
 fast machine -- but it works well on even my slow netbook.

 There have been occasional reports of this kind of problem, usually 
 connected, as far as we can tell, to interactions issues between LyX and 
 certain video drivers. So I'll ask, too: What system is this and, if it's 
 Linux, what desktop, what window manager, what X drivers?

Hey guys

I wasn't subscribed when I sent the first e-mail so this reply might
mess up a few things (using GMail so can't edit headers). And since
then there have been a number of replies.

Anyway I should've mentioned that I'm on Arch Linux and Intel graphics
(GM45 Express Chipset; probably GMA 4500MHD gpu).

The good news is all of a sudden I do not see the stuck behaviour.
It does scroll, but awfully slowly. Both up down and sideways (I like
to read while holding down the right arrow key). There have been some
Intel driver and Mesa updates in the recent past, so it is possible
(though with a great level of uncertainty) they did something (good).

So the bad news is, well, the scrolling is slow. The raster graphics
system switch did not appear to help in my case. The bottomline is
that if at least one other person cannot reproduce this (as in,
scrolling works for you like it does in any other app in this world)
then it is unlikely to be a LyX bug.

Upon further testing scrolling bumps the CPU usage from 1% on idle to
about 15-20%. This is LyX itself showing up on HTop, not X or anything
else related. Scrolling sideways doesn't take as much resources since
it takes its own sweet time.

The lag is more visible when there are objects being scrolled over,
rather than simple text. So I would assume a bit more CPU for that
would be normal.

Moreover, it doesn't take 100% of the CPU cycles, as appears to be
the main problem for similar problems reported around the web.

I think these are all very nice ideas, but the question is: how difficult would 
it be to include a
notifier in LyX to notify the user when the update is finished. In my opinion, 
this would be a
useful addition and shouldn't be to difficult to implement.

In the meantime, you could use a scrip instead the default viewer which

a) plays a sound (or use a music ploayer to play your favourite tune?)
b) launches the viewer you want

Cheers,

Rainer

Stop Lyx compiling

2012-05-04 Thread Mike Bonhoff
Hi, Lyx-Users,

is there a possibility to stop Lyx when it is compiling. Today I had
several times the problem that I wanted to make a picture with tikz and
made some mistake in the Lyx-Code (forgot the semicolon in the end of a
command). Unfortunately Lyx doesn't return a message that there is a
mistake and is compiling forever. I can not even stop the program after
that.

 As I remember Kile was also not able to stop the compiling of such a
program, but there is a button to stop the compiling.

Can I stop Lyx when it is compiling? I didn't find anything inside the
tutorials about that theme. And google seems not to find anything, too.

Thanks!

Mike

It will stop after 30 minutes. Alternatively you can kill the underlying

Layout for changing font within a paragraph?

2012-05-04 Thread James Sutherland
LyX users,

I am trying to create a local layout that allows me to change the font.
 This is what I have so far:

 Format 35

 Style Revision

 CopyStyle Standard

 LatexName textcolor{red}

 LatexType Command

 Font

 Color Red

 EndFont

 End

The problem is that this applies to an entire paragraph.  How do I apply
this to only a few words/sentences within a paragraph?

I don't see the point for doing this. Is it not easier to select the

What if you do that fifty-five times, and then decide you wanted all 
fifty of those things to be styled some other way? Some of us would say 
that the whole point of a markup-based editor like LyX was to allow you 
to style things semantically, and to adjust presentation independently.

That's the difference between Layout and InsetLayout: The former is 
paragraph level; the latter is word level.


There's a proposal to put some kind of combo box on the toolbar to allow

By the way, you don't need the quotes around Flex:Revision.

What kind of monstrous book would compile for 30 minutes? My 300 page,
108K word Key to Everyday Excellence takes 10 seconds to pdflatex
compile, 30 seconds to ps2pdf compile. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with the
following hardware:
slitt@mydesk:~$ grep -A 3 ^model name /proc/cpuinfo
model name  : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200  @ 2.53GHz
stepping: 6

slitt@mydesk:~$ head -n2 /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:4047324 kB
MemFree:  101804 kB
slitt@mydesk:~$

If I had a book that took 30 minutes to compile I would either:

1) Upgrade to fast multiprocessors and get 32GB of RAM, or
2) Split the book into multiple child documents.
3) Since the book's too long to read, split it into several books and
sell each one.

The computer in #1 is easily available for under a thousand now if you
build it from Newegg or CompUSA stock components.

 Hi all

 I've not been a LyX user for long but am going to write a 300-page academic 
 paper with it for the final typesetting and formatting. I've practised on 
 and off for the past few months but one thing that has always troubled me 
 is how I'm unable to scroll with the keyboard (up and down arrow keys). I'd 
 like to be rid of the mouse if possible.

 When I hold a particular directional key for up to 20 secs it appears to 
 work but as if it's in slow motion. Qt shouldn't be having any such 
 scrolling problem, so I haven't been able to troubleshoot this any further.

 I don't see this behavior at all.  The only thing that slows down scrolling 
 with the arrows is if the cursor enters a math formula.  Then it runs 
 through all the superscripts and subscripts, but still it is reasonably fast.

 You also might try using the Pageup and Pagedown keys.

 What system are you using?  Mine is debian testing (a linux variant), on a 
 fast machine -- but it works well on even my slow netbook.

 There have been occasional reports of this kind of problem, usually 
 connected, as far as we can tell, to interactions issues between LyX and 
 certain video drivers. So I'll ask, too: What system is this and, if it's 
 Linux, what desktop, what window manager, what X drivers?

Hey guys

I wasn't subscribed when I sent the first e-mail so this reply might
mess up a few things (using GMail so can't edit headers). And since
then there have been a number of replies.

Anyway I should've mentioned that I'm on Arch Linux and Intel graphics
(GM45 Express Chipset; probably GMA 4500MHD gpu).

The good news is all of a sudden I do not see the stuck behaviour.
It does scroll, but awfully slowly. Both up down and sideways (I like
to read while holding down the right arrow key). There have been some
Intel driver and Mesa updates in the recent past, so it is possible
(though with a great level of uncertainty) they did something (good).

So the bad news is, well, the scrolling is slow. The raster graphics
system switch did not appear to help in my case. The bottomline is
that if at least one other person cannot reproduce this (as in,
scrolling works for you like it does in any other app in this world)
then it is unlikely to be a LyX bug.

Upon further testing scrolling bumps the CPU usage from 1% on idle to
about 15-20%. This is LyX itself showing up on HTop, not X or anything
else related. Scrolling sideways doesn't take as much resources since
it takes its own sweet time.

The lag is more visible when there are objects being scrolled over,
rather than simple text. So I would assume a bit more CPU for that
would be normal.

Moreover, it doesn't take 100% of the CPU cycles, as appears to be
the main problem for similar problems reported around the web.

I think these are all very nice ideas, but the question is: how difficult would 
it be to include a
notifier in LyX to notify the user when the update is finished. In my opinion, 
this would be a
useful addition and shouldn't be to difficult to implement.

In the meantime, you could use a scrip instead the default viewer which

a) plays a sound (or use a music ploayer to play your favourite tune?)
b) launches the viewer you want

Cheers,

Rainer

Stop Lyx compiling

2012-05-04 Thread Mike Bonhoff
Hi, Lyx-Users,

is there a possibility to stop Lyx when it is compiling. Today I had
several times the problem that I wanted to make a picture with tikz and
made some mistake in the Lyx-Code (forgot the semicolon in the end of a
command). Unfortunately Lyx doesn't return a message that there is a
mistake and is compiling forever. I can not even stop the program after
that.

 As I remember Kile was also not able to stop the compiling of such a
program, but there is a button to stop the compiling.

Can I stop Lyx when it is compiling? I didn't find anything inside the
tutorials about that theme. And google seems not to find anything, too.

Thanks!

Mike

It will stop after 30 minutes. Alternatively you can kill the underlying

Layout for changing font within a paragraph?

LyX users,

 This is what I have so far:

 Format 35

 Style Revision

 CopyStyle Standard

 LatexName textcolor{red}

 LatexType Command

 Font

 Color Red

 EndFont

 End

The problem is that this applies to an entire paragraph.  How do I apply
this to only a few words/sentences within a paragraph?

What if you do that fifty-five times, and then decide you wanted all 
fifty of those things to be styled some other way? Some of us would say 
that the whole point of a markup-based editor like LyX was to allow you 
to style things semantically, and to adjust presentation independently.

That's the difference between Layout and InsetLayout: The former is

There's a proposal to put some kind of combo box on the toolbar to allow

What kind of monstrous book would compile for 30 minutes? My 300 page,
108K word Key to Everyday Excellence takes 10 seconds to pdflatex
compile, 30 seconds to ps2pdf compile. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with the
following hardware:
slitt@mydesk:~$ grep -A 3 ^model name /proc/cpuinfo
model name  : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200  @ 2.53GHz
stepping: 6
cpu MHz : 1596.000

slitt@mydesk:~$ head -n2 /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:4047324 kB
MemFree:  101804 kB
slitt@mydesk:~$

If I had a book that took 30 minutes to compile I would either:

1) Upgrade to fast multiprocessors and get 32GB of RAM, or
2) Split the book into multiple child documents.
3) Since the book's too long to read, split it into several books and
sell each one.

The computer in #1 is easily available for under a thousand now if you
build it from Newegg or CompUSA stock components.

Hey guys

I wasn't subscribed when I sent the first e-mail so this reply might
mess up a few things (using GMail so can't edit headers). And since
then there have been a number of replies.

Anyway I should've mentioned that I'm on Arch Linux and Intel graphics
(GM45 Express Chipset; probably GMA 4500MHD gpu).

The good news is all of a sudden I do not see the "stuck" behaviour.
It does scroll, but awfully slowly. Both up down and sideways (I like
to read while holding down the right arrow key). There have been some
Intel driver and Mesa updates in the recent past, so it is possible
(though with a great level of uncertainty) they did something (good).

So the bad news is, well, the scrolling is slow. The raster graphics
system switch did not appear to help in my case. The bottomline is
that if at least one other person cannot reproduce this (as in,
scrolling works for you like it does in any other app in this world)
then it is unlikely to be a LyX bug.

And oh yes, I'm on KDE. But on my system it does not make a difference
what DE or WM I'm on, as I've reproduced this with E17 and Openbox.

Upon further testing scrolling bumps the CPU usage from 1% on idle to
about 15-20%. This is LyX itself showing up on HTop, not X or anything
else related. Scrolling sideways doesn't take as much resources since
it takes its own sweet time.

The lag is more visible when there are objects being scrolled over,
rather than simple text. So I would assume a bit more CPU for that
would be normal.

Moreover, it doesn't take "100%" of the CPU cycles, as appears to be
the main problem for similar problems reported around the web.

I think these are all very nice ideas, but the question is: how difficult would 
it be to include a
notifier in LyX to notify the user when the update is finished. In my opinion, 
this would be a
useful addition and shouldn't be to difficult to implement.

In the meantime, you could use a scrip instead the default viewer which

a) plays a sound (or use a music ploayer to play your favourite tune?)
b) launches the viewer you want

Cheers,

Rainer

Stop Lyx compiling

2012-05-04 Thread Mike Bonhoff
Hi, Lyx-Users,

is there a possibility to stop Lyx when it is compiling. Today I had
several times the problem that I wanted to make a picture with tikz and
made some mistake in the Lyx-Code (forgot the semicolon in the end of a
command). Unfortunately Lyx doesn't return a message that there is a
mistake and is compiling forever. I can not even stop the program after
that.

 As I remember Kile was also not able to stop the compiling of such a
"program", but there is a button to stop the compiling.

Can I stop Lyx when it is compiling? I didn't find anything inside the
tutorials about that theme. And google seems not to find anything, too.

Thanks!

Mike

It will stop after 30 minutes. Alternatively you can kill the underlying 
processes (latex or something else).

I think I can easily make a time counter, which you can press and which

"When finished: [play sound/notify...etc]".

I don't see the point for doing this. Is it not easier to select the

What if you do that fifty-five times, and then decide you wanted all 
fifty of those things to be styled some other way? Some of us would say 
that the whole point of a markup-based editor like LyX was to allow you 
to style things semantically, and to adjust presentation independently.

This forces you to use "Text Style" to modify the text, but works fine.
That's the difference between Layout and InsetLayout: The former is 
paragraph level; the latter is word level.


There's a proposal to put some kind of combo box on the toolbar to allow 
easier access to these things.


By the way, you don't need the quotes around "Flex:Revision".

What kind of monstrous book would compile for 30 minutes? My 300 page,
108K word "Key to Everyday Excellence" takes 10 seconds to pdflatex
compile, 30 seconds to ps2pdf compile. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 with the
following hardware:
slitt@mydesk:~$ grep -A 3 "^model name" /proc/cpuinfo
model name  : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200  @ 2.53GHz
stepping: 6
cpu MHz : 1596.000
cache size  : 3072 KB

model name  : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200  @ 2.53GHz
stepping: 6
cpu MHz : 2527.000
cache size  : 3072 KB
slitt@mydesk:~$ head -n2 /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:4047324 kB
MemFree:  101804 kB
slitt@mydesk:~$

If I had a book that took 30 minutes to compile I would either:

1) Upgrade to fast multiprocessors and get 32GB of RAM, or
2) Split the book into multiple child documents.
3) Since the book's too long to read, split it into several books and
sell each one.

The computer in #1 is easily available for under a thousand now if you
build it from Newegg or CompUSA stock components.

What's going on is this. If there's nothing before the TOC, then 
\maketitle is not issued, so LaTeX does not try to produce a titlepage. 
If there is, then it does, and then you see the errors you do, because 
you haven't defined certain of the things you need to print the title 
page properly.


If you search for "Please define" in the cls file, you'll find the 
commands you need. You can put these in the preamble, e.g.:

\SetFullName{Shylock Muyengwa}
\SetThesisType{Dissertation}{
Etc.

The "LyX way" to do it would be to add these to the layout file. Things 
like this will work:


Style FullName
LaTeXType command
LaTeXName SetFullName
LabelType static
LabelString "Full Name:"
LabelSep x
Margin First_Dynamic
InTitle 1
Category FrontMatter
End

Style ThesisType
CopyStyle FullName
LaTeXName SetThesisType
LabelString "ThesisType:"
End

and so forth for the other commands you need.
