This I knew not. But, you are quite correct, it works charmingly.

This I believe I have to do via the language package custom area in the

breaks unicode-math.


Is the use of babel mandated by blindtext?
Normally, you would use polyglossia with XeTeX/LuaTeX and Unicode  
fonts.

I don't know the absolute minimum, but I woudl use LyX to create a

Alas, not [auto]...at least, not in LyX 2.0.8. Other settings were already

It doesn't throw an error, but the language isn't being set to english, so  
blindtext is outputting lorem ipsum, not english and math as it should.


attempt at quasi-MWE and pdf output attached. Note absence of math, though  
\setmathfont is working now.


Actually, ntitai, I tried this originally...before  putting

Lyx2.1 problem with metafile2eps converter

2014-05-10 Thread didiergabory
Hi,

I have problem wth lyx2.1 (on windows 7 64bits)... I often copy images from 
adobe reader with the embedded tool and paste directly on lyx (ctrl+V)... I 
have a error message Can not open Metafle to EPS converter printer (without 
i on Metafle :o)

When I try the conversion directly from Lyx2.1 dir\bin\metafile2eps.exe the 
same error occur... Any idea ?

LyX is scriptable. But you need a running instance.

Re: Lyx2.1 problem with metafile2eps converter

Hi,

I have problem wth lyx2.1 (on windows 7 64bits)... I often copy images from adobe reader with the embedded 
tool and paste directly on lyx (ctrl+V)... I have a error message "Can not open Metafle to EPS converter 
printer" (without "i" on "Metafle" :o)

When I try the conversion directly from Lyx2.1 dir\bin\metafile2eps.exe the 
same error occur... Any idea ?

Thanks

Didier
I've also got LyX2.1 on  64 bit Windows 7, and Adobe Reader X, and the 
copy and paste works without problems, so this looks like a problem at 
your end rather than with LyX.
