Re: Reverse search with xdvi

2013-09-06 Thread Fabio S.

If you can comment what and why was changed I can include it into docs as well.



ok.



xdvi:
inverse search:
Tools-Preferences-File Handling-File formats
 xdvi -editor lyxeditor.sh %f %l


In the docs: xdvi -editor 'lyxeditor.sh %f %l'
With single quotes it doesn't work (at least, for me)


direct search:
Tools-Preferences-Output-General
 xdvi -nofork -sourceposition $$n $$t $$o -editor lyxeditor.sh %f 
%l


-nofork part is needed because of the pipe?


I guess: the point is that without -nofork if you have xdvi already open, 
lyx starts a new instance every time you execute direct search.

I also addedd the -editor option.


okular:
inverse search:
Tools-Preferences-File Handling-File formats
 okular --unique


I'm not using okular, --unique should be default for inverse search purposes?


The default just says okular and the same in the following: I don't know 
wether it adds any option or not, but to have the correct behaviour 
without multiple instances of okular I had to specify these by hand.





direct search:
Tools-Preferences-Output-General
 okular --unique $$o#src:$$n $$f

Re: off topic: Is there a lyx user in Lund, Sweden?

2013-09-06 Thread Dr Eberhard Lisse
Wolfgang,

Anders is right, it's that simple and does not need assistance :-)-O
What he forgot is that you must run Tools - Reconfigure after
installation and then Quit and start LyX again.


If the individual is computer literate, and is concerned about disk
space, I would install the Basic package from the same web site however,
and then on occasion install missing packages with the tlmgr
(there is a Tex Live Utility).

I did that on my airbook and it works so well, that I do same on both
the iMac at home and at the practice. Synchronization needs a little
thought but is easy with something like

tlmgr info|grep ^i|awk '{print \$2}'|sed s/://g

giving all installed files which one feeds into the tlmgr on the other host.

And after each installation of a package that LyX needs to know about,
such as fonts. Linux Libertine does not come by default in the Basic for
example  but installs with the tlmgr. LyX then needs a Reconfigure to
become aware of it.

If you start from scratch writing LyX documents it's less of a hassle
because you are aware of what specific LateX packages you include and
thus must install and make available. Using an existing document
sometimes gives a cryptic error, but the log files then show the missing
package.

And of course there is this newsgroup where one can ask :-)-O

Thanks for the suggestion. It gets rid of the warning, but the red color it

\documentclass[red]{beamer}. I think beamer actually uses BrickRed of the
dvips list (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Colors#Predefined_colors) for
titles and backgrounds (although not for \alert{text}), but I don't know
how to force \usecolorheme{structure} to use these named colours. I tried
inserting \usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{color} in the preamble, but then
I get an Option clash for package color  warning. The following is a
minimum example (comment the first line and uncomment the two commented
lines for comparison of the color of the titlebar):

\documentclass[red,hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}
%\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}  %% the option to
avoid the warning ``Option `pdfpagelabels’ is turned off(hyperref) because
\thepage is undefined.''
\usecolortheme{whale}
%\usecolortheme[named=red]{structure}

\usepackage{lmodern}  %% avoid warning ``Size substitutions with

Beamer loads xcolor internally, so you need to pass xcolor options to beamer:

\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false},dvipsnames]{beamer}
\usecolortheme{whale}

Hi Patrick,

Edit Table Settings, then going into the Longtable tab in the dialogue

Or, alternatively, by right-clicking on a table and choosing Settings...

Beamer in the next Lyx version: a worry?

2013-09-06 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hi,
I remember having seen posts about the overhaul of Beamer in the Lyx beta
version. This is very good news. But I have also read some incompatibility
problems. This is very bad news. Have they been solved? I am worried
because I have several (more than a hundred, probably) Beamer documents in
Lyx that I have converted some time ago from Latex to Lyx. That has taken
considerable time, and I would really really not want to have go through a
heavy conversion process again. Reasonable backward compatibility would be
very much appreciated.
Any hope on this?

Do you have your table in a float, perhaps? I don't think you can have

Well, me too, for that matter :-)

But as I said, you won't have to re-do everything. It might happen that some 
stuff is not converted properly to the new scheme, since there are so many 
complex things you can do (especially if ERT is involved). If that happens, 
some finger-painting might be necessary, but you won't be left with a mess.

probably) Beamer documents in Lyx that I have converted some time ago 
from Latex to Lyx. That has taken considerable time, and I would 
really really not want to have go through a heavy conversion process 
again. Reasonable backward compatibility would be very much appreciated.
Me, too.  I have all of my class presentations on beamer, created 
through lyx in the (admittedly clunky) way we have now.  I would hate to 
have to re-do all of that.

Re: New LyX install problems... apparently minor :-)

2013-09-06 Thread Ken Springer

snip

My apologies to everyone, I screwed up.  I had installed and then 
uninstalled LyX once before, just for a quick look at the LyX window. 
But didn't use it.


But I had downloaded MetaTeX, but I don't remember if A) I didn't 
install it then, or B) I installed it and then uninstalled it at the 
same time I uninstalled it this time.


At any rate, I started all over from scratch, and it works fine.  Can't 
wait to get started with it, have a project in mind already! LOL

LyX installation packages, possibly OT

2013-09-06 Thread Ken Springer
Having resolved my issue with the LyX installation on my Mac, I also 
have installed it under Windows 7.  Also appears to work fine.


This has left me wondering about installation packages for different OS's.

Why is it, that if it's a Windows program, if a supporting program is 
needed to make the program run, in this case, the supporting program is 
also included in the program's installation package.  But, when the 
program goes into OS X, the supporting program isn't included in the 
installation package.


If the Mac LyX package for OS X had included the supporting program, I 
would never have had a problem.LOL

Detect if document is part of a master file

2013-09-06 Thread Marx Gomes van der Linden
Hello, I am currently writing a long document in Lyx. I use separate
files for each chapter, which are joined together as child documents
in a master file.

My question is: is there any way to include the references at the end
of each chapter when they are compiled as stand-alone documents, but
to omit them automatically if they are part of the master document
(which will have a single bibliography at the end of the whole thing)?
What I'm trying to do is to be able to generate proper pdfs for the
individual chapters with working references, without having to
manually remove every bibliography section before generating the
master document.

Thanks for any assistance

Re: Turning-off a command from a layout file?

Thank you Paul, but apparently it doesn't work. When I put the

line, I don't know why, but Lyx cancels the load of the theorems-ams
module. It is like, instead of just delete the Problem style, it deletes
all the module. Any other idea?

Re: Reverse search with xdvi

2013-09-06 Thread Fabio S.

If you can comment what and why was changed I can include it into docs as well.



ok.



xdvi:
inverse search:
Tools-Preferences-File Handling-File formats
 xdvi -editor lyxeditor.sh %f %l


In the docs: xdvi -editor 'lyxeditor.sh %f %l'
With single quotes it doesn't work (at least, for me)


direct search:
Tools-Preferences-Output-General
 xdvi -nofork -sourceposition $$n $$t $$o -editor lyxeditor.sh %f 
%l


-nofork part is needed because of the pipe?


I guess: the point is that without -nofork if you have xdvi already open, 
lyx starts a new instance every time you execute direct search.

I also addedd the -editor option.


okular:
inverse search:
Tools-Preferences-File Handling-File formats
 okular --unique


I'm not using okular, --unique should be default for inverse search purposes?


The default just says okular and the same in the following: I don't know 
wether it adds any option or not, but to have the correct behaviour 
without multiple instances of okular I had to specify these by hand.





direct search:

Re: off topic: Is there a lyx user in Lund, Sweden?

2013-09-06 Thread Dr Eberhard Lisse
Wolfgang,

Anders is right, it's that simple and does not need assistance :-)-O
What he forgot is that you must run Tools - Reconfigure after
installation and then Quit and start LyX again.


If the individual is computer literate, and is concerned about disk
space, I would install the Basic package from the same web site however,
and then on occasion install missing packages with the tlmgr
(there is a Tex Live Utility).

I did that on my airbook and it works so well, that I do same on both
the iMac at home and at the practice. Synchronization needs a little
thought but is easy with something like

tlmgr info|grep ^i|awk '{print \$2}'|sed s/://g

giving all installed files which one feeds into the tlmgr on the other host.

And after each installation of a package that LyX needs to know about,
such as fonts. Linux Libertine does not come by default in the Basic for
example  but installs with the tlmgr. LyX then needs a Reconfigure to
become aware of it.

If you start from scratch writing LyX documents it's less of a hassle
because you are aware of what specific LateX packages you include and
thus must install and make available. Using an existing document
sometimes gives a cryptic error, but the log files then show the missing
package.

And of course there is this newsgroup where one can ask :-)-O

Thanks for the suggestion. It gets rid of the warning, but the red color it

how to force \usecolorheme{structure} to use these named colours. I tried
inserting \usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{color} in the preamble, but then
I get an Option clash for package color  warning. The following is a
minimum example (comment the first line and uncomment the two commented
lines for comparison of the color of the titlebar):

\documentclass[red,hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}
%\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}  %% the option to
avoid the warning ``Option `pdfpagelabels’ is turned off(hyperref) because

\usecolortheme{whale}

Beamer loads xcolor internally, so you need to pass xcolor options to beamer:

Re: Math-mode previews not showing properly

2013-09-06 Thread David Dinh
As far as I know my LyX setup is the default. Instant preview is set to on
(preview size 1.0), UI language is set to default and language package is
set to automatic. I've tried a few different screen fonts, including the
cmr10 font from http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Troubleshooting#latexttf, to no
avail.

Desktop language is US English.

Updating from TeX 2012 to TeX 2013 did not fix the problem.

I tried deleting LyX and reinstalling it but this did not fix the problem.
Are LyX settings stored somewhere outside of the .app directory?

Thanks,
David

My apologies to everyone, I screwed up.  I had installed and then 
uninstalled LyX once before, just for a quick look at the LyX window. 
But didn't use it.


But I had downloaded MetaTeX, but I don't remember if A) I didn't 
install it then, or B) I installed it and then uninstalled it at the 
same time I uninstalled it this time.


At any rate, I started all over from scratch, and it works fine.  Can't

LyX installation packages, possibly OT

2013-09-06 Thread Ken Springer
Having resolved my issue with the LyX installation on my Mac, I also 
have installed it under Windows 7.  Also appears to work fine.


This has left me wondering about installation packages for different OS's.

Why is it, that if it's a Windows program, if a supporting program is 
needed to make the program run, in this case, the supporting program is 
also included in the program's installation package.  But, when the 
program goes into OS X, the supporting program isn't included in the 
installation package.


If the Mac LyX package for OS X had included the supporting program, I 
would never have had a problem.LOL

Detect if document is part of a master file

2013-09-06 Thread Marx Gomes van der Linden
Hello, I am currently writing a long document in Lyx. I use separate
files for each chapter, which are joined together as child documents
in a master file.

My question is: is there any way to include the references at the end
of each chapter when they are compiled as stand-alone documents, but
to omit them automatically if they are part of the master document
(which will have a single bibliography at the end of the whole thing)?
What I'm trying to do is to be able to generate proper pdfs for the
individual chapters with working references, without having to
manually remove every bibliography section before generating the
master document.

Thanks for any assistance

Re: Reverse search with xdvi

2013-09-06 Thread Fabio S.

If you can comment what and why was changed I can include it into docs as well.



ok.



xdvi:
inverse search:
Tools->Preferences->File Handling->File formats
 xdvi -editor "lyxeditor.sh %f %l"


In the docs: xdvi -editor 'lyxeditor.sh %f %l'
With single quotes it doesn't work (at least, for me)


direct search:
Tools->Preferences->Output->General
 xdvi -nofork -sourceposition "$$n $$t" $$o -editor "lyxeditor.sh %f 
%l"


"-nofork" part is needed because of the pipe?


I guess: the point is that without -nofork if you have xdvi already open, 
lyx starts a new instance every time you execute direct search.

I also addedd the -editor option.


okular:
inverse search:
Tools->Preferences->File Handling->File formats
 okular --unique


I'm not using okular, --unique should be default for inverse search purposes?


The default just says "okular" and the same in the following: I don't know 
wether it adds any option or not, but to have the correct behaviour 
without multiple instances of okular I had to specify these by hand.

Re: off topic: Is there a lyx user in Lund, Sweden?

2013-09-06 Thread Dr Eberhard Lisse
Wolfgang,

Anders is right, it's that simple and does not need assistance :-)-O
What he forgot is that you must run Tools -> Reconfigure after
installation and then Quit and start LyX again.


If the individual is computer literate, and is concerned about disk
space, I would install the Basic package from the same web site however,
and then on occasion install missing packages with the tlmgr
(there is a Tex Live Utility).

I did that on my airbook and it works so well, that I do same on both
the iMac at home and at the practice. Synchronization needs a little
thought but is easy with something like

tlmgr info|grep ^i|awk '{print \$2}'|sed s/://g

giving all installed files which one feeds into the tlmgr on the other host.

And after each installation of a package that LyX needs to know about,
such as fonts. Linux Libertine does not come by default in the Basic for
example  but installs with the tlmgr. LyX then needs a Reconfigure to
become aware of it.

If you start from scratch writing LyX documents it's less of a hassle
because you are aware of what specific LateX packages you include and
thus must install and make available. Using an existing document
sometimes gives a cryptic error, but the log files then show the missing
package.

And of course there is this newsgroup where one can ask :-)-O

Thanks for the suggestion. It gets rid of the warning, but the red color it
produces is much brighter than the red color I get by using
\documentclass[red]{beamer}. I think beamer actually uses "BrickRed" of the
dvips list (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Colors#Predefined_colors) for
titles and backgrounds (although not for "\alert{text}"), but I don't know
how to force \usecolorheme{structure} to use these named colours. I tried
inserting \usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{color} in the preamble, but then
I get an "Option clash for package color"  warning. The following is a
minimum example (comment the first line and uncomment the two commented
lines for comparison of the color of the titlebar):

\documentclass[red,hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}
%\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false}]{beamer}  %% the option to
avoid the warning ``Option `pdfpagelabels’ is turned off(hyperref) because
\thepage is undefined.''
\usecolortheme{whale}
%\usecolortheme[named=red]{structure}

\usepackage{lmodern}  %% avoid warning ``Size substitutions with
differences(Font) up to 1.0pt have occurred.''

Beamer loads xcolor internally, so you need to pass xcolor options to beamer:

\documentclass[hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false},dvipsnames]{beamer}
\usecolortheme{whale}
\usecolortheme[named=BrickRed]{structure}

Hi Patrick,

Which system are you on? In Linux, the LongTable option can be reached from
Edit >Table Settings, then going into the "Longtable" tab in the dialogue
box that opens up
Or, alternatively, by right-clicking on a table and choosing "Settings..."
from the pop-up menu. You'll get the same dialogue box as above.

Click right on the table, I have almost the same options.

Some have, others probably haven't. We can only fix problems we are aware of,

However, the potential problems are of the sort that documents might not

Do you have your table in a float, perhaps? I don't think you can have
longtables and float together. Although you should be able to see the
option as greyed out.

If I right-click from inside the table, I have a pop-up menu. The last item
is "More..". Clicking on that brings up a second pop-up menu, whose last
item is "Settings.."

I have now installed the beta, and started to open my beamers. It is going
quite smoothly for now.
A small problem I have observed happens with the title of the frames. They
are transformed to unrecognized argument boxes (I am translating from
French). I imagine that the process for giving titles to frames have
changed now.

Well, me too, for that matter :-)

But as I said, you won't have to re-do everything. It might happen that some 
stuff is not converted properly to the new scheme, since there are so many 
complex things you can do (especially if ERT is involved). If that happens, 
some finger-painting might be necessary, but you won't be left with a mess.

I've tested a fair amount of all sorts of slides now. Common things should 
just work.

So again, the more people help testing, the better the result in the final 
release of LyX 2.1

Bad space factor (0)

Hi,

I got stuck with an error
Bad space factor (0)
after trying to export a lyx document to pdf

(./AAAflowerclock20130829A5TEST.lof [2]

I allow only values in the range 1..32767 here.

! Bad space factor (0).
 \@savsf 

l.15 ...s. After .\relax }}{15}{figure.caption.14}
  
I allow only values in the range 1..32767 here.

If I take from the front matters (toc, lof, lot)  list of figures (lof) out, 
all is well.

I am on linux debian and lyx 2.0.6

Has anybody run into such an error and knows what went wrong?
I have successfully exported the German version of the book (koma script), 
but the translated English version gives me this error. I have tried to find 
a hint in the Internet, but did not find any useful help there.

Does it help to put

  NoStyle Problem

module?

Re: Longtable

2013-09-06 Thread Patrick Dupre
Sorry,

You are right,
it is in more -> setting (right clicking). Then, the Table setting option 
appear in Edit.

Probably, the doc needs to be updated.

Thank you very much.

Re: Math-mode previews not showing properly

2013-09-06 Thread David Dinh
As far as I know my LyX setup is the default. Instant preview is set to on
(preview size 1.0), UI language is set to default and language package is
set to automatic. I've tried a few different screen fonts, including the
cmr10 font from http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Troubleshooting#latexttf, to no
avail.

Desktop language is US English.

Updating from TeX 2012 to TeX 2013 did not fix the problem.

I tried deleting LyX and reinstalling it but this did not fix the problem.
Are LyX settings stored somewhere outside of the .app directory?

Thanks,
David

Re: Beamer in the next Lyx version: a worry?

I remember having seen posts about the overhaul of Beamer in the Lyx

Me, too.  I have all of my class presentations on beamer, created

Re: New LyX install problems... apparently minor :-)

2013-09-06 Thread Ken Springer



My apologies to everyone, I screwed up.  I had installed and then 
uninstalled LyX once before, just for a quick look at the LyX window. 
But didn't use it.


But I had downloaded MetaTeX, but I don't remember if A) I didn't 
install it then, or B) I installed it and then uninstalled it at the 
same time I uninstalled it this time.


At any rate, I started all over from scratch, and it works fine.  Can't 
wait to get started with it, have a project in mind already! LOL

LyX installation packages, possibly OT

2013-09-06 Thread Ken Springer
Having resolved my issue with the LyX installation on my Mac, I also 
have installed it under Windows 7.  Also appears to work fine.


This has left me wondering about installation packages for different OS's.

Why is it, that if it's a Windows program, if a supporting program is 
needed to make the program run, in this case, the supporting program is 
also included in the program's installation package.  But, when the 
program goes into OS X, the supporting program isn't included in the 
installation package.


If the Mac LyX package for OS X had included the supporting program, I 
would never have had a problem.LOL

Detect if document is part of a master file

2013-09-06 Thread Marx Gomes van der Linden
Hello, I am currently writing a long document in Lyx. I use separate
files for each chapter, which are joined together as child documents
in a master file.

My question is: is there any way to include the references at the end
of each chapter when they are compiled as stand-alone documents, but
to omit them automatically if they are part of the master document
(which will have a single bibliography at the end of the whole thing)?
What I'm trying to do is to be able to generate proper pdfs for the
individual chapters with working references, without having to
manually remove every bibliography section before generating the
master document.

Thanks for any assistance
Marx


Re: Turning-off a command from a layout file?

2013-09-06 Thread Christian Bustamante
Thank you Paul, but apparently it doesn't work. When I put the
 NoStyle Problem
line, I don't know why, but Lyx "cancels" the load of the theorems-ams
module. It is like, instead of just delete the Problem style, it deletes
all the module. Any other idea?
