Hi,

I can reproduce the problem on OSX 10.8.6 here.
The preference setting mentioned above doesn't help.

I tested the upcoming LyX 2.0.7 with Qt-4.8.5 and Cocoa API.

I'm almost sure it's a LyX problem and not related with Qt.
With LyX 2.1.0 dev and the same Qt libraries the problem is gone.

I'll investigate further.

IMO, it is a bad idea. Math macros are for mathematical typesetting (and
even then not the cleanest LaTeX code results).

The text alternative to math macros are insets. You could define them
either in a custom layout, a module or a local layout.

For anyone interested, here's an example of how to do this:

I'm still curious though if it is easier now, given the custom inset

Keyboard shortcut for unicode input not working

2014-01-23 Thread William Furnass
I'm running LyX v2.06 on Linux Mint 16.  In other applications I can
enter a unicode character using ctrl-shift-u then the code point.
However, I'm unable to do this in LyX, even if I explicitly bind
'unicode-input' to ctrl-shift-u in the preferences (results in '\bind
C-S-u unicode-insert' being added to .lyx/bind/user.bind).

Anyone got any ideas why this isn't working?  I know I can enter
unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input codepoint' in the
input box that appears at the bottom of the main window but this is
rather cumbersome.

Beamer frames in the 2.1b2

2014-01-23 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hello,

I was teaching today a course on (a little bit of LaTeX), (a lot of) LyX,
beamer etc. to our doctoral students, and I have somewhat lost them when I
showed they how I create a new frame in the new system. Am I doing
something too cumbersome, or this is the only way to do?

To introduce a new Frame (imagine the first one, for example)

- I type returns until I get on the left border of the page (so out of any
other environment),

- than I choose the Frame layout from the layouts combo.

-Lyx creates the Frame inset, and sometimes a box for the frame title (not
always),

- then I get out of the title box, if any, using the right arrow, type
return to go to a new line,

- insert a Separator layout

-come back with the left arrow,

-type return to go into the frame

- type TAB to get into the environment

- then LyX creates another Frame environment here (bizarre, no?)

- I change the layout in something more useful (standard for a figure or
BeamerIncrementalItemize, etc.)

- then at last I can fill my frame!

That seems too many operations also to me (I do not feel them, because I
have KeyboardMaestro shortcuts for doing them), but I have seen that the
students became discouraged by this.

*Questions :*

1/ is there a quicker way?

2/ If not, would not the environment we get after the TAB be something more
useful, like Standard, instead of another Frame?

I am teaching bibTeX, zotero and knitR tomorrow morning, so if you have a
better way, I would be happy to tell it to them.

Best regards,

Murat

Yes. It's because as you say one must enter the full string on the
mini-buffer. You can only make shortcuts to a full command, not
something that still requires input.

Also note that it's 'unicode-insert' and not 'unicode-input' in LyX
2.1 (perhaps this changed?).

What happens for you when you do ctrl+shift+u? On Ubuntu 13.10 with
LyX2.1beta2 I get a u with an underline, but on the next character
it disappears. I have the feeling this is a Qt-related issue (I was
just wrong on this same feeling in a thread before though so beware).

 I know I can enter
 unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input codepoint' in the
 input box that appears at the bottom of the main window but this is
 rather cumbersome.

I've always been interested in use cases for this. Do you just
remember lots of handy unicode so you can enter them quickly? I only
use them when I look them up some where. So for me, the 10 seconds of
having to type alt-x then typing 'unicode-insert codepoint' is far
less than the time it takes for me to actually find the code of the
character I want to insert.

On the other hand, if you have 10 or so unicodes memorized, you could
just instead make shortcuts. For example, if you want to enter unicode
Ucode, bind something to 'unicode-insert Ucode' and for a
different one make a new one. This won't work if you have many of them
memorized though, but I just wanted to suggest that in case you hadn't
thought of it.

 Questions :

 1/ is there a quicker way?

I stumbled onto the same issue when playing around with 2.1 beamer. I
may be wrong, but I don't think there's a quicker way. And for what
it's worth, I also found the whole process rather confusing and
somewhat cumbersome. (Just to be sure check the official docs Help 
Specific  Beamer, or wait for Juergen's input.) Personally I think
that the 2.1 overhaul of Beamer support is absolutely awesome and very
useful, and rids us of many limitations and compatibility issues that
plagued Beamer in LyX =2.0.x. But it is still rough around the edges,
at least user-experience-wise.

I was wondering, though, if maybe we should consider using custom
insets instead of styles (at least for the frames, as is done in the
'seminar' layout; check Examples  seminar.lyx and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/5515 ). This should remove the
frustrating experience of inserting a frame (that you describe above).
And it should make a Beamer document much easier to read, much more
intuitive for casual LyX users. Of course we would need to close
several related bugs, like http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/7877 and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6825 , but nothing insurmountable as
far as I can see.

Liviu

Nice idea. I often forget the usefulness of physical cheat sheets.

 I forgot to mention that Ctrl-Shift-u allows me to subsequently enter
 code points to input unicode characters in LyX on another machine
 running Ubuntu 13.10

So you are saying that it works as you expect on this machine? Which
version of LyX is it?

 and, more importantly, that pressing Ctrl-Shift-U
 on my machine oddly generates a O with a backslash through it, without
 me entering any characters afterwards.  I've now unset Ctrl-Shift-U in
 the key bindings and still see this behaviour.

This is why I think it's Qt-related. I don't think there's a built-in

 Thanks for sharing, Murat. That looks like a useful course that I wish
 I had access to when I was learning about this stuff. I'm looking
 forward to seeing the slides on Sage.

 Thank you Scott!

 Well, that ones will wait unfortunately because I have just discovered that
 my setup for sage is currently broken and I have difficulty to locate the
 culprit (I have updated both Lyx and Sage recently and have not checked that
 the connection is working. Stupid of me. Anyway, I will not have time for
 this I think given the only job I have been able to do today in 5 hours (and
 I have only three hours left tomorrow).

Unfortunately I'm not surprised the integration is fragile. I wish I
had more time to look into this. Please let us know if you find a
solution.

 My only suggestion is that you link to a .lyx file as well as your
 PDFs. The best way to learn is through example.


 Yes, definitely! I have promised this to them today. But I need to
 completely finis writing them :-)
 They will be public also, as soon as I become enough confident in them ;-)

Makes sense.

Hi,

I can reproduce the problem on OSX 10.8.6 here.
The preference setting mentioned above doesn't help.

I tested the upcoming LyX 2.0.7 with Qt-4.8.5 and Cocoa API.

I'm almost sure it's a LyX problem and not related with Qt.
With LyX 2.1.0 dev and the same Qt libraries the problem is gone.

Keyboard shortcut for unicode input not working

2014-01-23 Thread William Furnass
I'm running LyX v2.06 on Linux Mint 16.  In other applications I can
enter a unicode character using ctrl-shift-u then the code point.
However, I'm unable to do this in LyX, even if I explicitly bind
'unicode-input' to ctrl-shift-u in the preferences (results in '\bind
C-S-u unicode-insert' being added to .lyx/bind/user.bind).

Anyone got any ideas why this isn't working?  I know I can enter
unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input codepoint' in the

Beamer frames in the 2.1b2

2014-01-23 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hello,

I was teaching today a course on (a little bit of LaTeX), (a lot of) LyX,
beamer etc. to our doctoral students, and I have somewhat lost them when I
showed they how I create a new frame in the new system. Am I doing
something too cumbersome, or this is the only way to do?

To introduce a new Frame (imagine the first one, for example)

- I type returns until I get on the left border of the page (so out of any
other environment),

- than I choose the Frame layout from the layouts combo.

-Lyx creates the Frame inset, and sometimes a box for the frame title (not
always),

- then I get out of the title box, if any, using the right arrow, type
return to go to a new line,

- insert a Separator layout

-come back with the left arrow,

-type return to go into the frame

- type TAB to get into the environment

- then LyX creates another Frame environment here (bizarre, no?)

- I change the layout in something more useful (standard for a figure or
BeamerIncrementalItemize, etc.)

- then at last I can fill my frame!

That seems too many operations also to me (I do not feel them, because I
have KeyboardMaestro shortcuts for doing them), but I have seen that the
students became discouraged by this.

*Questions :*

1/ is there a quicker way?

2/ If not, would not the environment we get after the TAB be something more
useful, like Standard, instead of another Frame?

I am teaching bibTeX, zotero and knitR tomorrow morning, so if you have a
better way, I would be happy to tell it to them.

Best regards,

Murat

Yes. It's because as you say one must enter the full string on the
mini-buffer. You can only make shortcuts to a full command, not
something that still requires input.

Also note that it's 'unicode-insert' and not 'unicode-input' in LyX
2.1 (perhaps this changed?).

What happens for you when you do ctrl+shift+u? On Ubuntu 13.10 with
LyX2.1beta2 I get a u with an underline, but on the next character
it disappears. I have the feeling this is a Qt-related issue (I was
just wrong on this same feeling in a thread before though so beware).

 I know I can enter
 unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input codepoint' in the
 input box that appears at the bottom of the main window but this is
 rather cumbersome.

I've always been interested in use cases for this. Do you just
remember lots of handy unicode so you can enter them quickly? I only
use them when I look them up some where. So for me, the 10 seconds of
having to type alt-x then typing 'unicode-insert codepoint' is far
less than the time it takes for me to actually find the code of the
character I want to insert.

On the other hand, if you have 10 or so unicodes memorized, you could
just instead make shortcuts. For example, if you want to enter unicode
Ucode, bind something to 'unicode-insert Ucode' and for a
different one make a new one. This won't work if you have many of them
memorized though, but I just wanted to suggest that in case you hadn't
thought of it.

 Questions :

 1/ is there a quicker way?

I stumbled onto the same issue when playing around with 2.1 beamer. I
may be wrong, but I don't think there's a quicker way. And for what
it's worth, I also found the whole process rather confusing and
somewhat cumbersome. (Just to be sure check the official docs Help 
Specific  Beamer, or wait for Juergen's input.) Personally I think
that the 2.1 overhaul of Beamer support is absolutely awesome and very
useful, and rids us of many limitations and compatibility issues that
plagued Beamer in LyX =2.0.x. But it is still rough around the edges,
at least user-experience-wise.

I was wondering, though, if maybe we should consider using custom
insets instead of styles (at least for the frames, as is done in the
'seminar' layout; check Examples  seminar.lyx and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/5515 ). This should remove the
frustrating experience of inserting a frame (that you describe above).
And it should make a Beamer document much easier to read, much more
intuitive for casual LyX users. Of course we would need to close
several related bugs, like http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/7877 and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6825 , but nothing insurmountable as
far as I can see.

Liviu

 I forgot to mention that Ctrl-Shift-u allows me to subsequently enter

So you are saying that it works as you expect on this machine? Which

 and, more importantly, that pressing Ctrl-Shift-U
 on my machine oddly generates a O with a backslash through it, without
 me entering any characters afterwards.  I've now unset Ctrl-Shift-U in
 the key bindings and still see this behaviour.

This is why I think it's Qt-related. I don't think there's a built-in

Hi,

I can reproduce the problem on OSX 10.8.6 here.
The preference setting mentioned above doesn't help.

I tested the upcoming LyX 2.0.7 with Qt-4.8.5 and Cocoa API.

I'm almost sure it's a LyX problem and not related with Qt.
With LyX 2.1.0 dev and the same Qt libraries the problem is gone.

I'll investigate further.

IMO, it is a bad idea. "Math macros" are for mathematical typesetting (and
even then not the cleanest LaTeX code results).

The text alternative to "math macros" are "insets". You could define them
either in a custom layout, a module or a local layout.

For anyone interested, here's an example of how to do this:
http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/155442/15538 . However this is a bit
awkward to set up all the time.

I'm still curious though if it is easier now, given the custom inset

Keyboard shortcut for unicode input not working

2014-01-23 Thread William Furnass
I'm running LyX v2.06 on Linux Mint 16.  In other applications I can
enter a unicode character using ctrl-shift-u then the code point.
However, I'm unable to do this in LyX, even if I explicitly bind
'unicode-input' to ctrl-shift-u in the preferences (results in '\bind
"C-S-u" "unicode-insert"' being added to .lyx/bind/user.bind).

Anyone got any ideas why this isn't working?  I know I can enter
unicode using alt-x then typing 'unicode-input <>' in the
input box that appears at the bottom of the main window but this is
rather cumbersome.

Beamer frames in the 2.1b2

2014-01-23 Thread Murat Yildizoglu
Hello,

I was teaching today a course on (a little bit of LaTeX), (a lot of) LyX,
beamer etc. to our doctoral students, and I have somewhat lost them when I
showed they how I create a new frame in the new system. Am I doing
something too cumbersome, or this is the only way to do?

To introduce a new Frame (imagine the first one, for example)

- I type returns until I get on the left border of the page (so out of any
other environment),

- than I choose the Frame layout from the layouts combo.

-Lyx creates the Frame inset, and sometimes a box for the frame title (not
always),

- then I get out of the title box, if any, using the right arrow, type
return to go to a new line,

- insert a Separator layout

-come back with the left arrow,

-type return to go into the frame

- type TAB to get into the environment

- then LyX creates another Frame environment here (bizarre, no?)

- I change the layout in something more useful (standard for a figure or
BeamerIncrementalItemize, etc.)

- then at last I can fill my frame!

That seems too many operations also to me (I do not feel them, because I
have KeyboardMaestro shortcuts for doing them), but I have seen that the
students became discouraged by this.

*Questions :*

1/ is there a quicker way?

2/ If not, would not the environment we get after the TAB be something more
useful, like Standard, instead of another Frame?

I am teaching bibTeX, zotero and knitR tomorrow morning, so if you have a
better way, I would be happy to tell it to them.

Best regards,

Murat

Yes. It's because as you say one must enter the full string on the
mini-buffer. You can only make shortcuts to a full command, not
something that still requires input.

Also note that it's 'unicode-insert' and not 'unicode-input' in LyX
2.1 (perhaps this changed?).

What happens for you when you do ctrl+shift+u? On Ubuntu 13.10 with
LyX2.1beta2 I get a "u" with an underline, but on the next character
it disappears. I have the feeling this is a Qt-related issue (I was
just wrong on this same feeling in a thread before though so beware).

I've always been interested in use cases for this. Do you just
remember lots of handy unicode so you can enter them quickly? I only
use them when I look them up some where. So for me, the 10 seconds of
having to type alt-x then typing 'unicode-insert <>' is far
less than the time it takes for me to actually find the code of the
character I want to insert.

On the other hand, if you have 10 or so unicodes memorized, you could
just instead make shortcuts. For example, if you want to enter unicode
, bind something to 'unicode-insert ' and for a
different one make a new one. This won't work if you have many of them
memorized though, but I just wanted to suggest that in case you hadn't
thought of it.

Best,

Scott

I stumbled onto the same issue when playing around with 2.1 beamer. I
may be wrong, but I don't think there's a quicker way. And for what
it's worth, I also found the whole process rather confusing and
somewhat cumbersome. (Just to be sure check the official docs Help >
Specific > Beamer, or wait for Juergen's input.) Personally I think
that the 2.1 overhaul of Beamer support is absolutely awesome and very
useful, and rids us of many limitations and compatibility issues that
plagued Beamer in LyX <=2.0.x. But it is still rough around the edges,
at least user-experience-wise.

I was wondering, though, if maybe we should consider using custom
insets instead of styles (at least for the frames, as is done in the
'seminar' layout; check Examples > seminar.lyx and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/5515 ). This should remove the
frustrating experience of inserting a frame (that you describe above).
And it should make a Beamer document much easier to read, much more
intuitive for casual LyX users. Of course we would need to close
several related bugs, like http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/7877 and
http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6825 , but nothing insurmountable as
far as I can see.

Well, if any of your students happens to use Ubuntu, chances are that
they'll know what to  do with that page. :) At the very list this link
is reference here: http://www.lyx.org/Download#toc5 , and some
instructions are given here: http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LyXOnUbuntu#toc3
. Maybe you can just reference the LyX Downloads link.

 No, it didn't make a difference. I increased it from 150% to 250%, no

I recommend to file a bug on trac. Maria, do you want me to do it?

The cause of the problem is not obvious and IMHO it's not caused by 
user action.

Nice idea. I often forget the usefulness of physical cheat sheets.
I've been meaning to print some.

So you are saying that it works as you expect on this machine? Which
version of LyX is it?

This is why I think it's Qt-related. I don't think there's a built-in
LyX binding for Ctrl+Shift+U.

Thanks for sharing, Murat. That looks like a useful course that I wish
I had access to when I was learning about this stuff. I'm looking
forward to seeing the slides on Sage.

My only suggestion is that you link to a .lyx file as well as your
PDFs. The best way to learn is through example.

Best,

Scott

Thank you Scott!

Well, that ones will wait unfortunately because I have just discovered that
my setup for sage is currently broken and I have difficulty to locate the
culprit (I have updated both Lyx and Sage recently and have not checked
that the connection is working. Stupid of me. Anyway, I will not have time
for this I think given the only job I have been able to do today in 5 hours
(and I have only three hours left tomorrow).

Yes, definitely! I have promised this to them today. But I need to
completely finis writing them :-)
They will be public also, as soon as I become enough confident in them ;-)

Best regards,

Murat

Unfortunately I'm not surprised the integration is fragile. I wish I
had more time to look into this. Please let us know if you find a
solution.
