Rename bibliography when using thesis.lyx template

2012-02-12 Thread Chris Hennick
According to http://wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/Unsorted#renameEnv, I should be able
to rename my bibliography to References by changing \bibname or \refname.
But neither of the listed tricks (Babel and non-Babel) works -- it still
renders named Bibliography. Anyone know how to fix it when using that
template?

References out of order

2012-03-26 Thread Chris Hennick
Hi all,

I'm using the IEEEtran template. Since the numbered references aren't
alphabetical in the bibliography, I assume they're intended to be in order
of first citation. But sometimes they aren't, if the citation order changes
during editing. How do I re-sort and renumber the references when necessary?

Monitor BibTeX files?

2012-04-26 Thread Chris Hennick
My BibTeX files are automatically updated by Mendeley. Is there any way to
have LyX monitor them for changes, so that I don't have to scroll down to
the bibliography and click Rescan all the time? This would be handy, since
I often start writing with the research still in progress.

  What version are you using? This was recently fixed.

 2.0.2. Is there any way to get updates automatically?

I've manually updated to 2.0.3, and the automatic rescan is working. Thanks!

On a related note, is there any way to set a target file path for PDF

Managing acknowledgements and disclosures?

2012-05-21 Thread Chris Hennick
Tonight I decided that when I was citing books or reprints that had been
given to me, I should probably add an acknowledgement, like so:

The authors wish to thank donors for the following reference materials: [#]
from Jane Doe, [#] from John Doe, and [#, #] from anonymous sources.


However, I'll have to manually edit this acknowledgement if I drop one of
those sources, or if I receive and cite another reprint. It also occurs to
me that I'd have the same issue if I were buying source materials with
grant money, since then the citations would determine which grant numbers
went on which papers. (At least, that's how I understand funding
disclosure, although as a grad student I'm new to the subject.)

Is it possible in LyX to automatically manage acknowledgements and grant
disclosures, when some of them are tied to particular citations?
