Book (AMS), quote* getting indented

2009-01-19 Thread Frederick Noronha [फ़रेदरिक नोरो नया]
Hi all:

I'm trying to use Book (AMS) class, and in it, the quote* text seems
to be getting indented at the start of every new para.

Actually I don't want the indent, because I've not implemented it
throughout in the book.

Question: how do I achieve this?

Many thanks! FN

It works fine if I switch to Chapter (with the chapter numbers). But
that's not what I want.

I am a long-time (2-3 years) Lyx users, but just only recently ran

This may sound like a bizarre query: but is it possible to ensure that

to begin on a new page. Would be grateful for any help. Thanks, FN

 There is a preference setting -LookFeel -User Interface -Maximum last

 ignored and there were always 9 last files. But, this is already fixed for

Book (AMS), quote* getting indented

Hi all:

I'm trying to use Book (AMS) class, and in it, the quote* text seems
to be getting indented at the start of every new para.

Actually I don't want the indent, because I've not implemented it
throughout in the book.

Question: how do I achieve this?

Suppose I make a few more changes in the Wordstar file, is it possible
to have those (editorial) changes automatically reflected in the

Navigate > Other Lists

2009-03-05 Thread Frederick Noronha [फ़रेदरिक नोरो नया]
I am a long-time (2-3 years) Lyx users, but just only recently ran
into the NAVIGATE > OTHER LISTS feature on this software, after
upgrading to 1.6.1

Just to say: I cannot tell you how useful this is, for updating the
index, correcting footnotes and whole lot of other tasks. Kudos to the
developers for creating such a useful feature.

Other features on one's dream-list:

* A kind of automated indexing: which lists all the occurances of one
word, and asks the editor whether s/he wants to include each entry.

* Better help files.

* More and better latex chapter-page templates, which offer neat layouts...

* Closer integration between layout on Lyx and typesetting (on
wordprocessor), so that when one file gets changed, the other gets
automatically updated.

* Easier installs on Windows, to help editors to work with authors seamlessly.

Thanks again! FN

Reducing font-size in non-standard options

2009-07-25 Thread Frederick Noronha [फ़रेदरिक नोरो नया]
Could someone please tell me how to reduce the font-size of a chapter
in non-standard options? That is, I don't want to reduce it from
Normal to Small to Smaller but say from 10 point to 9.5 point or 9.3
point for the entire chapter. Thanks! FN

Opening up files where work had stopped

2009-08-30 Thread Frederick Noronha [फ़रेदरिक नोरो नया]
Just wanted to know if there is any way I could open Lyx software to
show up the 4-5 files I was last working on simultaneously -- at the
very spot where I finished editing last.

Wouldn't this be helpful, specially if one works on multiple files at
the same time (like me)? FN

Query... adding multiple authors names to TOC

Dear all:

I want to add the contributory writers' names to the table-of-contents
of an anthology where almost every chapter is written by a different
author. Is that possible, without including the names in the chapter
title itself?

If so, how?

It should read

GOANS AND THE PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE ...  ...  Alfred F. Braganza ... 147

Many thanks! Would appreciate a cc of your reply to me! FN
