 Dear Stephan, 
 
 Thanks for your feedback. My problem is actually that I don't have this 
 button !

But your screen shot has it. It's only a red one if I place the pointer over it.

 It may well be hidden below the Mac Menu Bar, but I can't displace the small 
 window (Gliederung in your German screen shot). I don't see the name of the 
 window neither... But wait a second ... 
 
 Ok I resolve it. I put a second screen, change to mirror display and the 
 button appeared ! So I close the menu, and I'm fine with that :-) 
 
 Perhaps the problem is due to the non-standard screen resolution of the 
 MacBookAir (14440 x 900), I don't know. 

Wow, that's a really big screen! ;-)

Seriously, I'm glad you solved it.

 1. Leave the exporter as it is and be left with imperfect and

this one seems to me what we should aim for -- the most ambitious goal

and need LibreOffice round trips, you'll learn with time which latex
constructs are compatible and preserved, and which ones are instead
wiped out in the round-trip, and you'll avoid them.

 2. Instruct the exporter to produces images of math expressions
 instead of MathML, and leave the job to create a perfect-looking math
 expression in LibreOffice/Word to the publisher/typesetter.

this would make sense if there's a way to instruct LibreOffice in a
way in which you can:
-) right-click on the image, pick Modify image
-) then you get a text editor open, with your LaTeX formula
-) once you save back, it is latex-dvi-pdf-ed back again into the .odt
Would that be possible?

In my experience, the only times I needed non-latex sources, was because
I was asked for MS Word format for the camera ready (my colleagues forced
me into round-tripping with latex, actually :-) ). In that moment, what
I'd need most, is the 2nd option in which I get all equations perfectly
right, but in form of (vectorial) images. But it's actually .docx that
publishers ask for, not .odt!

Dear Stefano,

2014-03-13 21:17 GMT+01:00 stefano franchi stefano.fran...@gmail.com:

 === QUESTIONS

 So the questions are:

 1. Are you a potential user of a Word/LibreOffice export converters?


Yes, sometime  a collaboration with a specific user or a submission with a
specific journal could imply a switch to the OO/Word format.


 2. If so, do you use routinely use mathematical expressions in your
 documents?


Yes, very common in my case.



 3. Why do you/would you need to export to LibreOffice/Word format? (to
 send the documents to publishers, mentors, advisors, colleagues, and
 so on)


See my reply to 1.

Do you think that the call to another component could help the conversion
process? I have in mind the Tex2Word module for Word that makes use of the
MathType software (the free version is enough normally).

Or the TexMaths for OO/LO :
http://roland65.free.fr/texmaths/

Both of them understand LaTeX code for equations.

Thank you for taking time to develop such a tool that will be very useful I
think.

Well, yes, you're perfectly right, I didn't noticed this. The fact is: I

I confirm this button was absent in the normal display of Lyx. I didn't

I don't have anything against MiKTeX. I had something against "LOL".

No. I didn't like the tone of the discussion.

Re: Math in LibreOffice/Word exported files: input needed

this one seems to me what we should aim for -- the most ambitious goal
of interoperability among the two. If you're collaborating with colleagues
and need LibreOffice round trips, you'll learn with time which latex
constructs are compatible and preserved, and which ones are instead
wiped out in the round-trip, and you'll avoid them.

this would make sense if there's a way to instruct LibreOffice in a
way in which you can:
-) right-click on the image, pick "Modify image"
-) then you get a text editor open, with your LaTeX formula
-) once you save back, it is latex-dvi-pdf-ed back again into the .odt
Would that be possible?

In my experience, the only times I needed non-latex sources, was because
I was asked for MS Word format for the camera ready (my colleagues forced
me into round-tripping with latex, actually :-) ). In that moment, what
I'd need most, is the 2nd option in which I get all equations perfectly
right, but in form of (vectorial) images. But it's actually .docx that
publishers ask for, not .odt!

Yes, sometime  a collaboration with a specific user or a submission with a
specific journal could imply a switch to the OO/Word format.

Yes, very common in my case.

See my reply to 1.

Do you think that the call to another component could help the conversion
process? I have in mind the Tex2Word module for Word that makes use of the
MathType software (the free version is enough normally).

Or the TexMaths for OO/LO :
http://roland65.free.fr/texmaths/

Both of them understand LaTeX code for equations.

Thank you for taking time to develop such a tool that will be very useful I
think.

Murat

Re: The list of lists window doesn't close (Lyx 2.0.7.1 on McOs 10.9.2)

2014-03-14 Thread Godzatswing
Well, yes, you're perfectly right, I didn't noticed this. The fact is: I
don't use Lyx in full screen, that was just the simpler way to erase all
the details about my computer on the screen-shot.

I confirm this button was absent in the normal display of Lyx. I didn't
even know the Window was called "Outline"... So maybe still a small bug. I
don't know.

And -2 for me, resolution is 1440 x 900 : it is still a laptop ;-)

Thanks again for your feedback, Stephan.
All the best to you.
