OOps, sorry wrong thread!

You can edit directly the TeX code by selecting the equation inside math 
mode (ctrl+C) and paste outside math mode (ctrl+V) then you will have the 
TeX code directly (you can also place TeX code directly without to enter 
math mode). When you finished select again your Tex code and press Ctrl+M.

If there is a way to display the raw TeX of a math inset, I suppose it

can just use ERT.

  This is my standard. About 15 years ago I attended a half-day seminar on

 Another way to scratch your (La)TeX itch is to use LyX's layouts. You
 can make your own environments and insets and you define the LaTeX
 that is behind all of those. For my use, I've found that if there's a
 customization that I just want once, ERT is great. If I find myself
 doing something many times, I am starting to consider making a module
 or adding to my local layout. See the customization manual for
 information on these options.

My usual route is to \C-m, start entering (maybe using \tex stuff, very nice).  
Problem arises if I made a mistake and then need to edit.  Then selecting and 
modifying via the gui is tedious and I usually wind up erasing accidentally 
large parts, and basically starting over.  This is where editing the underlying 
TeX would save trouble.

To elaborate a bit more: The usual procedure is that you create a
presentation with the normal beamer class, and then include this
presentation into the beamer-article (or koma+beamer) class, as a
child document. Then you can produce the slides if you view the
presentation document itself, and the handout if you view this master

the presentation.

Launch file warning from hyperlink in PDF

2013-03-20 Thread leonid baranov
Hello, LyXers

Two questions about hyperlinking executables.

1.
I was hoping to create an annotated family media archive
using LyX. A searchable and navigable text in PDF would
serve as a guide to the archive. Hyperlinks would point to
the media of interest and allow to play it on click.
Imbedding this amount of media in PDF was not an option.

  As an annoying problem, Adobe Reader XI does not play
videos until after user's response to a Launch file warning
(see an attached sample).

  Recent fixes in the Adobe security notwithstanding,
the Adobe Help seems to imply that it should be possible to
suppress the warning. But no tried combination of Reader's
preferences (Multimedia(legacy) | Multimedia Trust (legacy) |
Security | Security (Enhanced) | Trust Manager ) would allow
to circumvent the warning.

  Are there additional PDF options which one could specify
in LyX so as to suppress the warning?

Platform: LyX 2.0.5/MiKTeX 2.9/Win 7

2.
Similarly, but more generally, could one hyperlink an aribitrary
local executable (say, of my own making) and pass parameters to it?

Adobe help seems to imply that, beyond the 3 choices offered
by LyX (Web | eMail | File ), there also exist so called
Custom Links.  

Could the custom hyperlinks be defined through LyX? If so,
could they be used (how?) for the above purpose of invoking
ANY executable/script?

Thank you for your time

Hi,

I failed to figure out how to upload an attachment to

So, here are the missing details for the previous

1.1.

In Insert  Hyperlink dialog, I entered:

- Link type:

1.2.
  Adobe Reader's Launch File Warning:

   The file and it's viewer application are set to be launched by this PDF file.
   The file may contain programs, macros, or viruses that could potentially
   harm your computer. Only opern the file if you are sure it is safe.
   If this file was placed by a trusted person or program, you can click
   Open to view the file.

   C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe


  Open  |  Do Not Open 

1.3.

Note that the video in question is a demo file normally available on any
Windows platform (comes with a standard distribution).

 I do understand this tendency, since I also came to LyX with a TeX

 ERT (Evil Red Text, a TeX inset.  It's evil mostly because you have the
 usual problems that if your code is wrong, it won't produce any output and
 TeX will yell at you.).  You can still do that if you want.  Use a TeX inset
 rather than a math one, and it will work.
 
 Another way to scratch your (La)TeX itch is to use LyX's layouts. You
 can make your own environments and insets and you define the LaTeX
 that is behind all of those. For my use, I've found that if there's a
 customization that I just want once, ERT is great. If I find myself
 doing something many times, I am starting to consider making a module
 or adding to my local layout. See the customization manual for
 information on these options.

To elaborate a bit more: The usual procedure is that you create a

Launch file warning from hyperlink in PDF

2013-03-20 Thread leonid baranov
Hello, LyXers

Two questions about hyperlinking executables.

1.
I was hoping to create an annotated family media archive
using LyX. A searchable and navigable text in PDF would
serve as a guide to the archive. Hyperlinks would point to
the media of interest and allow to play it on click.
Imbedding this amount of media in PDF was not an option.

  As an annoying problem, Adobe Reader XI does not play
videos until after user's response to a Launch file warning
(see an attached sample).

  Recent fixes in the Adobe security notwithstanding,
the Adobe Help seems to imply that it should be possible to
suppress the warning. But no tried combination of Reader's
preferences (Multimedia(legacy) | Multimedia Trust (legacy) |
Security | Security (Enhanced) | Trust Manager ) would allow
to circumvent the warning.

  Are there additional PDF options which one could specify
in LyX so as to suppress the warning?

Platform: LyX 2.0.5/MiKTeX 2.9/Win 7

2.
Similarly, but more generally, could one hyperlink an aribitrary
local executable (say, of my own making) and pass parameters to it?

Adobe help seems to imply that, beyond the 3 choices offered
by LyX (Web | eMail | File ), there also exist so called
Custom Links.  

Could the custom hyperlinks be defined through LyX? If so,
could they be used (how?) for the above purpose of invoking
ANY executable/script?

Thank you for your time

OOps, sorry wrong thread!

You can edit directly the TeX code by selecting the equation inside math 
mode (ctrl+C) and paste outside math mode (ctrl+V) then you will have the 
TeX code directly (you can also place TeX code directly without to enter 
math mode). When you finished select again your Tex code and press Ctrl+M.

Yes, select one of the following

To elaborate a bit more: The usual procedure is that you create a
presentation with the normal beamer class, and then include this
presentation into the beamer-article (or koma+beamer) class, as a
child document. Then you can produce the slides if you view the
presentation document itself, and the handout if you view this master
document. The good thing is that you need to edit only one document:
the presentation.

Jürgen,

  Thank you. I had not looked at the beamer manual but now will.

Jürgen,

  I'll certainly learn how to do this. Looks like a great time saver over
the way I used to prepare presentations and visuals.

Much appreciated,

Rich

"Launch file" warning from hyperlink in PDF

2013-03-20 Thread leonid baranov
Hello, LyXers

Two questions about hyperlinking executables.

1.
I was hoping to create an annotated family media archive
using LyX. A searchable and navigable text in PDF would
serve as a guide to the archive. Hyperlinks would point to
the media of interest and allow to play it on click.
Imbedding this amount of media in PDF was not an option.

  As an annoying problem, Adobe Reader XI does not play
videos until after user's response to a "Launch file" warning
(see an attached sample).

  Recent fixes in the Adobe security notwithstanding,
the Adobe Help seems to imply that it should be possible to
suppress the warning. But no tried combination of Reader's
preferences (Multimedia(legacy) | Multimedia Trust (legacy) |
Security | Security (Enhanced) | Trust Manager ) would allow
to circumvent the warning.

  Are there additional PDF options which one could specify
in LyX so as to suppress the warning?

Platform: LyX 2.0.5/MiKTeX 2.9/Win 7

2.
Similarly, but more generally, could one hyperlink an aribitrary
local executable (say, of my own making) and pass parameters to it?

Adobe help seems to imply that, beyond the 3 choices offered
by LyX (Web | eMail | File ), there also exist so called
"Custom Links".  

Could the custom hyperlinks be defined through LyX? If so,
could they be used (how?) for the above purpose of invoking
ANY executable/script?

Thank you for your time

Hi,

I failed to figure out how to upload an attachment to
a GMANE post.

So, here are the missing details for the previous
post.

1.1.

In "Insert > Hyperlink" dialog, I entered:

- Target:

run:C:/Users/Public/Videos/Sample Videos/Wildlife.wmv

- Link type:

Web

1.2.
  Adobe Reader's "Launch File" Warning:

   The file and it's viewer application are set to be launched by this PDF file.
   The file may contain programs, macros, or viruses that could potentially
   harm your computer. Only opern the file if you are sure it is safe.
   If this file was placed by a trusted person or program, you can click
   Open to view the file.

   C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe


 < Open > | < Do Not Open >

1.3.

Note that the video in question is a demo file normally available on any
Windows platform (comes with a standard distribution). 


Regards,
Leonid
