Index not printing

2018-03-15 Thread David White
Hi,

For some reason, indexes are not being produced with pdflatex.

I started noticing this around the time of upgrading MiKTeX to the latest
(64-bit) version.  I have created several documents with indexes (single
and multiple) in the past, so I am rather baffled.

If I open the LyX User's Guide from the Help menu and hit View [PDF
(pdflatex)], an index is not printed.  If I create a brand new document,
type some text, insert an index entry (using the menu) and insert an index,
an index is not printed.

The "Default" Processor is set in Document Settings > Index Generation.

Strangely, the idx file is created and there are no errors or warnings in
the logs.

Has anyone seen this before?

Any thoughts on what might be causing this issue.

Many thanks, David.

How about this:
This version of LyX needs MikTeX v. ? at least. The installer found only
earlier version of MikTeX / The installer could not find any installation
of MikTeX on your system.
And the buttons shall read 'Cancel' and 'Update MikTeX and install LyX' or
'Install MikTeX & LyX".
Perhaps it should be clear somehow that the installer updates MikTeX to the
most recent version, and tell the user what is the path of the old MikTeX
detected by installer.

PS Is there an option to have two different MikTeX versions installed on
the same system? If there is such an option, then we need an option to tell
that's path to this installer.

Haim

I mean, it should be clear that you cannot continue with old miktex, and it
should offer you the update. For the avarage user that is enough.
On the other hand, users that do not want to update their old miktex are
considered intelligent enough to get the point that this installation would
ruin their miktex habits. And if they want to get another supported miktex
version, e.g. the first supported version, they can figure out they can do
it on their own.

If the user clicks on "Continue", then the LyX Installer would proceed
to do the update.

Right.

"stick" in the sense I described before.

Ctrl-X is not a good idea. This is the default binding for "cut" (and 
Alt-X ist the default binding for the minibuffer).


I can close LyX and restart it and look at cua.bind and it's still
there.  (I do that in Emacs in case you're wondering.  The path on
my machine is Program Files (x86) > LyX 2.2 > Resources > bind >

However cua.bind cannot possibly be the default bind file because
if I am in LyX and type C-x it says "command disabled" so I can't
even do "cut".  I think I can figure out how to load the cua
bindings but my concern is that it will reset some of the default
bindings.  I also use LyX for math and logic and I don't want to
lose those shortcuts.

The user-defined shortcuts are not saved in cua.bind, but in 
user.bind, which is in your personal LyX directory, in the bind subfolder.


You can even directly copy the following to this file (and restart LyX):

\bind "M-I" "command-alternatives in-ipa ; ipa-insert"

Please compare to
https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/KeyboardShortcuts#StandardKeybindings

where it says "You can use the script LyxBindings
 to generate your own
documentats describing for your configuration of keyboard
shortcuts. Some users experience the complete loss of every
bindings after changes. In that case, a .bind file needs to be
reselected in the menu
(Tools/Preferences/Editing/Shortcuts/Browse). /The cua.bind file

Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

In my case, it looks like this:

LyX Version 2.2.4dev

(Monday, May 15, 2017)

Built from git commit hash 4db40b11

Library directory: ~/lyx/lyx-22/lib/

User directory: ~/.lyx-22/

Qt Version (run-time): 5.10.0

Qt Version (compile-time): 5.9.1


User directory is ~/.lyx-22/ in that case.

Ok now I'm really confused.  LyX shows the C-x i binding but cua.bind 
doesn't.  But as least C-c works.  Have I messed up by defining C-x i 
when C-x means "cut".  In that case what prefix can I use (in Emacs 
terms) to define my own extended shortcuts?  But how can I have messed 
up when cua.bind only shows C-x and no other C-x plus something 
bindings?  At least there's a problem here between what LyX thinks the 
cua shortcuts are and what is actually in cua.bind.

On Tools → Settings → Edition → Keyboard shortcuts type "ipa" on the 
filter box and you'll find the ipa-insert command listed below: select 
it and click on Modify to assign a keyboard shortcut to it.

Thanks very much in advance for any help

Sorry I forgot to mention that if I can do it in LyX itself I'd
like it to "stick" in the sense that if I close LyX and start it
again I don't have to manually set the key binding.

Hi Ricardo

Thanks very much for your reply.  BTW I'm running LyX 2.2.3.  Here's 
what I've come up with.


I have to do something slightly different namely

    Tools > Preferences > Editing > Shortcuts > Cursor, Mouse and 
Editing Functions > ipa-insert > Modify


The bind file is shown as cua in which there is no binding for 
ipa-insert.  (Someone please tell me if I'm wrong) so after I click on 
Modify I have to select New and then enter the binding. So I enter C-x i 
and ipa-insert and it does indeed "stick" in the sense I described 
before.  I can close LyX and restart it and look at cua.bind and it's 
still there.  (I do that in Emacs in case you're wondering.  The path on 
my machine is Program Files (x86) > LyX 2.2 > Resources > bind > cua.bind.)


However cua.bind cannot possibly be the default bind file because if I 
am in LyX and type C-x it says "command disabled" so I can't even do 
"cut".  I think I can figure out how to load the cua bindings but my 
concern is that it will reset some of the default bindings.  I also use 
LyX for math and logic and I don't want to lose those shortcuts.


Please compare to 
https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/KeyboardShortcuts#StandardKeybindings where it 
says "You can use the script LyxBindings 
 to generate your own 
documentats describing for your configuration of keyboard shortcuts. 
Some users experience the complete loss of every bindings after changes. 
In that case, a .bind file needs to be reselected in the menu 
(Tools/Preferences/Editing/Shortcuts/Browse). /The cua.bind file is the 
basic one./"


Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

Best

Mike

LyX key bindings

2018-03-15 Thread mike

Hello

Can someone help me please?  I would like to bind a key combination to 
"command-alternatives in-ipa ; ipa-insert".  For the moment at least I 
want to stick to the default key bindings plus this one additional 
binding.  Again for the moment anyway how do I find out what the default 
key bindings are so that I don't reset a key binding that already 
exists?  Is there a way to do this in LyX itself rather than having to 
mess around with bind files?  I did try to work this out myself but 
couldn't figure it out.  FWI I use LyX on Win 7 Pro with 32 bit MiKTeX.


Thanks very much in advance for any help
