I've got a Mac here so I installed the OTF fonts the usual Mac way
(download the .tgz, drag all the .otf files therein into ~/Library/Fonts/).

In LyX, Linux Libertine doesn't appear as a choice for me unless Use
non-TeX fonts is checked. Then I select it and Linux Biolinum in the

Continuous spell-checking is a fairly common editor's feature nowadays.
Linux's Kile (a Latex editor) has it, for instance, and it is based on
standard KDE components. As much as I love Lyx's spellchecker (and I

How to customize an IEEE-tran bibtex-style?

2013-03-13 Thread Clemens Eisserer
Hello,

Please forgive me this slightly off-topic question, but is it possible
to modify a bibtext style?
I am using IEEEtran, and I am a bit unsatisfied with some of its
conventions, like:

- IEEEtran prints vol. whereas I would prefer Volume.
- IEEEtran has a weird style of concatenating many names, resulting in
author-fields like: H. P. H. C. R. J. T. R. M. D. S. J. A. Kahle, M.
N. Day,

On the other side, IEEEtran has a good-looking format and does handle
URLs, thats why I would keep it in the first place.

Thank you in advance and sorry for the traffic here.

However if the LaTeX user is used to spell-checking, then selling LyX

not that familiar with LaTeX editors, and this specific colleague was
using one without a spell-checking feature.

Oh, one other point.. My pitch for selling LyX is that it is like
Word for LaTeX. And then I start clicking around to show how
intuitive all is, and display the source pane to show them what they
would have had to type to get that specific construct (including
math). I think this delivers the message rather well.

Yes, Linux Libertine is available as both, TeX and OTF (system) font.

However, native LyX support may be missing. For use as TeX font, set the
font-buttons to Default and add

to the LaTeX preamble. (See the Package Documentation for details and

There is no need for manually setting the font encoding, as this is done by
LyX. This may explain the problems with XeTeX/LuaTeX, as even these TeX
engines use TeX fonts if you set a TeX font encoding with fontenc in
the user preamble.

Re: [off-topic] LyX as a LaTeX table editor (and other selling advice)

2013-03-13 Thread Wolfgang Keller
 The selling point to adopting LyX, at least for some tasks, was the
 table editing.

*cough*

This is one of the issues where LyX still needs quite a bit of work
imho.

As it is now, it's pretty unusable, unless you hard-code column (or
table) widths in your document.

LyX doesn't even show a horizontal scrollbar when the table is wider
than the display. Which can result in the cursor being outside the
display.

I have often wished for a horizontal scrollbar also within math mode.  I

see the whole line, as a line.  I often reduce the font to the limit my

Of course, this does not mean I want the text spread out over a very

Re: Vector Fonts for Russian-English LyX document

2013-03-13 Thread leonid baranov
Maria,

Very kind of you to share with others.
The font is a treasure trove. Rich expressive capabilities.
Especially, in multilingual environment.

My 2 cents to using it. Platform: LyX/MiKTeX/Windows 7.
I did as instructed at 

   http://www.linuxlibertine.org/index.php?id=91L=1

Downloaded the archived OTF files (Open Type Font). Unzipped into
an auxiliary directory. Copied OTF-files into C:\Windows\Fonts.
Restarted LyX. Selected Document Settings  Fonts  Use non-Tex Fonts.
The newly added Linux Libertine fonts were available through the drop
down menu for fonts. For PDF generation, used View  PDF(XeTeX).

   Everything worked right away.

Thank you,
and best wishes,

Leonid. 




Re: editing math in lyx

2013-03-13 Thread Paul A . Rubin
1. Position the cursor just inside the numerator (you should see 'Font: textrm'
in the status line).

2. Hit backspace (removing the font selection and reverting the numerator to
normal math font).

3. Select the contents of the numerator.

4. Type '\textsf' and hit the space bar. It will appear to be overwriting the
numerator, but when you hit the space bar the numerator contents will be there,
in the new font.

5. Repeat for the denominator.

Yes - if you know what you're doing. A BST file is basically source code for a
program written in its own little language (a stack-oriented language). Learn
the language and you can hack any BST file.

Probably an easier approach is to build your own BST file using 'makebst'. The
program interviews you and cobbles together a BST file according to your
specifications. (I think -- been a while since I used it.)

I've got a Mac here so I installed the OTF fonts the usual Mac way
(download the .tgz, drag all the .otf files therein into ~/Library/Fonts/).

In LyX, Linux Libertine doesn't appear as a choice for me unless Use
non-TeX fonts is checked. Then I select it and Linux Biolinum in the
drop-down menu and everything works (if pdf'd via XeTeX, anyway).

Continuous spell-checking is a fairly common editor's feature nowadays.
Linux's Kile (a Latex editor) has it, for instance, and it is based on

How to customize an IEEE-tran bibtex-style?

2013-03-13 Thread Clemens Eisserer
Hello,

Please forgive me this slightly off-topic question, but is it possible
to modify a bibtext style?
I am using IEEEtran, and I am a bit unsatisfied with some of its
conventions, like:

- IEEEtran prints vol. whereas I would prefer Volume.
- IEEEtran has a weird style of concatenating many names, resulting in
author-fields like: H. P. H. C. R. J. T. R. M. D. S. J. A. Kahle, M.
N. Day,

On the other side, IEEEtran has a good-looking format and does handle
URLs, thats why I would keep it in the first place.

Thank you in advance and sorry for the traffic here.

However if the LaTeX user is used to spell-checking, then selling LyX

not that familiar with LaTeX editors, and this specific colleague was
using one without a spell-checking feature.

Oh, one other point.. My pitch for selling LyX is that it is like
Word for LaTeX. And then I start clicking around to show how
intuitive all is, and display the source pane to show them what they
would have had to type to get that specific construct (including
math). I think this delivers the message rather well.

Yes, Linux Libertine is available as both, TeX and OTF (system) font.

However, native LyX support may be missing. For use as TeX font, set the
font-buttons to Default and add

There is no need for manually setting the font encoding, as this is done by
LyX. This may explain the problems with XeTeX/LuaTeX, as even these TeX

the user preamble.

 The selling point to adopting LyX, at least for some tasks, was the
 table editing.

*cough*

This is one of the issues where LyX still needs quite a bit of work
imho.

As it is now, it's pretty unusable, unless you hard-code column (or
table) widths in your document.

LyX doesn't even show a horizontal scrollbar when the table is wider
than the display. Which can result in the cursor being outside the
display.

I have often wished for a horizontal scrollbar also within math mode.  I

see the whole line, as a line.  I often reduce the font to the limit my

Re: Vector Fonts for Russian-English LyX document

2013-03-13 Thread leonid baranov
Maria,

Very kind of you to share with others.
The font is a treasure trove. Rich expressive capabilities.
Especially, in multilingual environment.

My 2 cents to using it. Platform: LyX/MiKTeX/Windows 7.
I did as instructed at 

   http://www.linuxlibertine.org/index.php?id=91L=1

Downloaded the archived OTF files (Open Type Font). Unzipped into
an auxiliary directory. Copied OTF-files into C:\Windows\Fonts.
Restarted LyX. Selected Document Settings  Fonts  Use non-Tex Fonts.
The newly added Linux Libertine fonts were available through the drop
down menu for fonts. For PDF generation, used View  PDF(XeTeX).

   Everything worked right away.

Thank you,
and best wishes,

Leonid. 




Re: editing math in lyx

2013-03-13 Thread Paul A . Rubin
1. Position the cursor just inside the numerator (you should see 'Font: textrm'
in the status line).

2. Hit backspace (removing the font selection and reverting the numerator to
normal math font).

3. Select the contents of the numerator.

4. Type '\textsf' and hit the space bar. It will appear to be overwriting the
numerator, but when you hit the space bar the numerator contents will be there,
in the new font.

5. Repeat for the denominator.

Yes - if you know what you're doing. A BST file is basically source code for a
program written in its own little language (a stack-oriented language). Learn
the language and you can hack any BST file.

Probably an easier approach is to build your own BST file using 'makebst'. The
program interviews you and cobbles together a BST file according to your
specifications. (I think -- been a while since I used it.)

I've got a Mac here so I installed the OTF fonts the usual Mac way
(download the .tgz, drag all the .otf files therein into ~/Library/Fonts/).

In LyX, Linux Libertine doesn't appear as a choice for me unless "Use
non-TeX fonts" is checked. Then I select it and Linux Biolinum in the
drop-down menu and everything works (if pdf'd via XeTeX, anyway).

Continuous spell-checking is a fairly common editor's feature nowadays.
Linux's Kile (a Latex editor) has it, for instance, and it is based on
standard KDE components. As much as I love Lyx's spellchecker (and I
wouldn't be able to work without it), I would hesitate to sell Lyx over
Latex on it.

(Tables are a different issue, of course, and Liviu's point is well-taken
and worth remembering)

How to customize an IEEE-tran bibtex-style?

2013-03-13 Thread Clemens Eisserer
Hello,

Please forgive me this slightly off-topic question, but is it possible
to modify a bibtext style?
I am using IEEEtran, and I am a bit unsatisfied with some of its
conventions, like:

- IEEEtran prints "vol." whereas I would prefer "Volume".
- IEEEtran has a weird style of concatenating many names, resulting in
author-fields like: "H. P. H. C. R. J. T. R. M. D. S. J. A. Kahle, M.
N. Day,"

On the other side, IEEEtran has a good-looking format and does handle
URLs, thats why I would keep it in the first place.

Thank you in advance and sorry for the traffic here.

- Clemens

However if the LaTeX user is used to spell-checking, then selling LyX
without stressing the feature would be a deal-breaker. :) Anyways, I'm
not that familiar with LaTeX editors, and this specific colleague was
using one without a spell-checking feature.

Oh, one other point.. My pitch for selling LyX is that it is "like
Word for LaTeX". And then I start clicking around to show how
intuitive all is, and display the source pane to show them what they
would have had to type to get that specific construct (including
math). I think this delivers the message rather well.

Yes, Linux Libertine is available as both, TeX and OTF (system) font.
http://www.ctan.org/pkg/libertine


However, native LyX support may be missing. For use as TeX font, set the
font-buttons to Default and add 

  \usepackage{libertine}
  
to the LaTeX preamble. (See the Package Documentation for details and
options.)

There is no need for manually setting the font encoding, as this is done by
LyX. This may explain the problems with XeTeX/LuaTeX, as even these TeX
engines use "TeX fonts" if you set a "TeX font encoding" with "fontenc" in
the user preamble.

*cough*

This is one of the issues where LyX still needs quite a bit of work
imho.

As it is now, it's pretty unusable, unless you hard-code column (or
table) widths in your document.

LyX doesn't even show a horizontal scrollbar when the table is wider
than the display. Which can result in the cursor being outside the
display.

There definitely are rough edges, but for someone accustomed to the
pain of editing a table in LaTeX, LyX comes as a huge improvement.

Yes, that would be nice to fix. But there are workarounds, such as
decreasing the size of the font in LyX.

Yes, that would be nice to fix. But there are workarounds, such as
decreasing the size of the font in LyX.
I have often wished for a horizontal scrollbar also within math mode.  I 
often work with very long lines in multiline equations, and in rough 
drafts don't want to fight through making it fit on a page.  I want to 
see the whole line, as a line.  I often reduce the font to the limit my 
old eyes can endure, along with getting a widescreen monitor, and still 
at times I wish for more.


Of course, this does not mean I want the text spread out over a very 
long line like that, only the math block (or a table, perhaps).

there is sufficient demand to meet the funding requirements rather

Erase what you had an redo it. Copy it out first, if you wish,

This might be a good choice for Google's Summer of code 2013 which is
currently open for orgs' submission (deadline is in 5 days: 3/18:
http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2013?ModPagespeed=noscript).


Any interest in reviving Lyx's application? I am willing to take care of
coordinating the submission, but I am no coder. Are there devs interested
in mentoring?

Re: Vector Fonts for Russian-English LyX document

2013-03-13 Thread leonid baranov
Maria,

Very kind of you to share with others.
The font is a treasure trove. Rich expressive capabilities.
Especially, in multilingual environment.

My 2 cents to using it. Platform: LyX/MiKTeX/Windows 7.
I did as instructed at 

   http://www.linuxlibertine.org/index.php?id=91=1

Downloaded the archived OTF files (Open Type Font). Unzipped into
an auxiliary directory. Copied OTF-files into C:\Windows\Fonts.
Restarted LyX. Selected "Document Settings > Fonts > Use non-Tex Fonts".
The newly added Linux Libertine fonts were available through the drop
down menu for fonts. For PDF generation, used "View > PDF(XeTeX)".

   Everything worked right away.

Thank you,
and best wishes,

Leonid. 




Re: editing math in lyx

2013-03-13 Thread Paul A . Rubin
1. Position the cursor just inside the numerator (you should see 'Font: textrm'
in the status line).

2. Hit backspace (removing the font selection and reverting the numerator to
normal math font).

3. Select the contents of the numerator.

4. Type '\textsf' and hit the space bar. It will appear to be overwriting the
numerator, but when you hit the space bar the numerator contents will be there,
in the new font.

5. Repeat for the denominator.

Yes - if you know what you're doing. A BST file is basically source code for a
program written in its own little language (a stack-oriented language). Learn
the language and you can hack any BST file.

Probably an easier approach is to build your own BST file using 'makebst'. The
program interviews you and cobbles together a BST file according to your
specifications. (I think -- been a while since I used it.)
