no easy route from XeTeX to LaTeX for latex2rtf to work. Kinda obvious I guess!

All this so I can give my thesis chapters to supervisors in Word for feedback

configuring latex2rtf with LyX 2

2013-02-06 Thread Justin Wood
Hi all. I've read the instructions for using latex2rtf with LyX here
http://wiki.lyx.org/Tips/ExportingRichTextFormatWithLaTeX2rtf, but can't
get it to work. This is on v2.0.4 on a Win7 box (but I also have an OS X
setup). I've installed latex2rtf as the Win exe and to get around the white
space issue I've made a junction from d:\utils\latex2rtf -- c:\Program Files
(x86)\latex2rtf. I believe this is working correctly as it's picked up in
the configuration log:
INFO: checking for a LaTeX - RTF converter...
INFO: +checking for latex2rtf...  no
INFO: +checking for latex2rt...  yes
DEBUG: Add to RC:
\converter latex  rtflatex2rt -p -S -o $$o $$ineedaux

But nothing I've tried has made the RTF option appear in the File - Export
menu, or View. I'm pretty hazy on what actually governs that in general to
be honest, as many options in Preferences are 'enabled' but do not appear
in the list. I read in the latex2rtf manual that the tmp aux files need to
exist, so I tried running View - PDF (XeTeX) but no joy.

Could the problem be that I'm using XeTeX rather than default LaTeX? Thanks!

Thanks Günter. I've looked through the log and can't find any warnings that
indicate this.
 
 To find out whether it is a wrapping problem or a problem of the command,
 you might experiment with giving the output of the \cite command directly in
 place of it and see if this wraps well.

Good suggestion. It seems that components of the citation (using \citet) are
broken over the line as one would hope, but individual full words are not
hyphenated. So for example, 'Ramanathan and Feng (2008)' is broken after
Ramanathan, but that word/name itself is not hyphenated and hence spills over
into the margin a little.

I suppose my question is how the cross reference can be specified so that it
breaks between the label and the numerical identifier, which would largely fix
the problem?

At the moment I'm using:
 \renewcommand{\figureautorefname}{Figure~\negthinspace}

I've tried replacing '~' with a simple space, with '\,' and '\ ' but it still
doesn't break between 'Figure' and the ref label. Shouldn't that be possible?

 
  Is this something of a known trap? Any suggestions much appreciated. I
  realise a sample .lyx file may also help, but these are pretty large and
  linked to a number of custom modules, plus a parent document, so I haven't
  attached one (yet). I'm hoping it's more of a general issue...
 
 Try creating a minimal working example from the file, i.e. a test document
 that has everyting that is not needed to reproduce the bug removed. Often
 creating this example already helps towards a solution. In other cases it
 allows interested people to experiment.

Yep, very much understood. I was hoping I could find a solution without having
to go quite that far... :)

Ahh, found the source of the problem. The thesis template includes
\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\mbox{\autoref{#1

And \mbox prevents line breaks within the reference itself. Removing that
resolves the problem, and even hyphenates 'Figure'. Of course it was no doubt

Ahh I see. Thanks for the explanation (I didn't think to check in bug trac).
Happy to (re)set the document default viewer as a workaround —— I keep them open
for long periods anyway.



Re: LyX and TexLive2010

Sam,
I've been using LyX 1.6.7 with TexLive2010 on OS X (10.6.x) and Win7 for
months now with no problems. Obvious question: is the E-TeX package
installed (eg, check in Tex Live Utility GUI)?

 Subject: LyX and TexLive2010

 Dear All,

 Does anyone successfully use LyX (1.6.7) with TexLive2010?

 Since I have change to TL2010, LyX brings up the fatal error that I don't
 have e-Tex. I have update TL2010 via tlnet update, as previously suggested.
 TL2009 works perfectly well. Any idea? Many thanks.

 Cheers, Sam

Re: A path for the Bibliography files

Windows users can create symlinks too. If they're still stuck on XP, you can
use junction 
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768.aspx(with
some messing about); anyone using Vista and up can use the native
'mklink' command for files directly. I do exactly this for my own .bib files
in the TEXMF local tree: symlink (or hard link if you prefer) to the source
.bib file in Dropbox, under both OS X and Win7.

Re: Questions on elsarticle

2010-12-16 Thread Justin Wood
This has probably already been answered, but if not: you need to use BibTeX
and select an author-date style. Check out section 6.5 (Bibliography) of the
User Guide, and http://wiki.lyx.org/BibTeX/BibTeX (hmm, I thought there was
a page with step by step instructions but can't see to find it). Basically
you need four things (assuming LyX 1.6.8):
1. A BibTeX database .bib file containing your citation records. This is
done outside of LyX; utilities abound... I personally use the superawesome LyZ
utility http://www.klubko.net/wp/?page_id=945lang=en to handle this for
me from my Zotero http://www.zotero.org/ reference database in Firefox.
2. Set your document to use BibTeX: Document Settings - Bibliography, select
Natbib with Author-year
3. Insert a Bibliography in your document using Insert - List/TOC - BibTeX
bibliography, and point to the .bib file — you'll probably have to browse to
it unless you install it in the relevant directory of your LaTeX distro
(which is worth doing in my opinion; I hardlink from there back to where I
store the real file).
4. In that same dialogue, you choose the citation style. plainnat is the
default and works okay but it uses square brackets not parentheses by
default. Personally I use Chicago style, via this
.bsthttp://www.digitas.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/wiki/ken/McBride(which
again needs to be installed in your LaTeX distro).

The actual citation style I think is the weak link in the chain. I could
well be missing something, but it struck me as overly difficult to get a
'proper' author-year format in the manner you describe.

 Dear Members,



 I am using the template from Lyx for a manuscript which requires
 author-year citation in text. However, no matter what kind of efforts I have
 made, the citation doesn’t work but only with a numeral ID at the end of the
 citation. Taking an example as Jones (1995). What I want is ‘Jones (1995)
 constructed a model that …’, while the final result after transferring it to
 PDF shows ‘Jones (1995) [1]’. Would anyone of you provide some suggestion
 for such a case?

Re: LyX 2.0: problems using XeTeX and thesis template

On 10 December 2010 12:37, lyx-users-h...@lists.lyx.org wrote:

  2. conflict in thesis template
  Beyond that, changing to the automatic AMS math package in the thesis
  document introduces new errors. In a brand new, entirely unmodified
  chapter template file, XeTeX compilation now complains about the use of '
  \addto \extrasenglish{' in the preamble (used to define cross reference
  identifiers). Is this another conflict between XeTeX and ... is it
  *hyperref * these overrides refer to?

 The reason for this is that XeTeX now uses polyglossia, which does not know
 these \addto commands (which are from babel). Are these templates shipped
 with LyX? If so, we need to embrace these calls in

 \...@ifpackageloaded{babel}{%
 ...
 }{}


Yes, these are the thesis set of template files that ship with LyX 2.0.

I tried adding this to the chapter template preamble. The error is removed,
but it seems to be because the commands are not processed — the cross ref
labels are not applied.



  3. custom character-style error
  Finally, and this is more an annoyance than an impediment, my custom
  character style module (based on info from Rob
  Oakeshttp://blog.oak-tree.us/index.php/2009/11/14/customize-lyx-
 character-styleshttp://blog.oak-tree.us/index.php/2009/11/14/customize-lyx-%0Acharacter-styles

  generates an *Undefined flex inset *error: 'Flex inset

  is undefined because of class conversion from article to article' (and
 the
  same occurs in scrbook). This only seems to get thrown if I save a change
  made within Document Settings, not on view, etc. Is there something in my
  module that might cause this?

Is there documentation on the correct syntax? I've not been able to find

LyX 2.0: problems using XeTeX and thesis template

2010-12-07 Thread Justin Wood
Hi all. I'm gingerly trying to switch over to LyX 2.0 (beta 1   2) and to
start using XeTeX so I can more easily access additional fonts. I'm writing
a thesis using the included thesis templates. Actually my current work uses
the template set sent out on these lists earlier in 2010, so I created brand
new sample files from the new 2.0 version to test the problems I'm about to
describe.


1. conflict with AMS package
I've found that simply activating XeTeX under *Document Settings –
Fonts*will cause parsing errors on viewing if the document also has
*Math Options – Use AMS math package* checked; eg, LaTeX Error: Command
`\Finv' already defined, etc. I think this is a known conflict between XeTeX
and the AMS package, is that right? By changing the setting to *Use AMS math
package automatically* though, these particular errors go away. Note that
this occurs in the generic default new document (*article* class) as well as
the *KOMA-script book *class that the thesis uses.

So for a 'simple' document — which has the automatic AMS math package option
checked by default anyway — this seems to fix the problem. But is that a
reasonable thing to do, or is the thesis template not initially configured
to use the auto version for good reason?

2. conflict in thesis template
Beyond that, changing to the automatic AMS math package in the thesis
document introduces new errors. In a brand new, entirely unmodified chapter
template file, XeTeX compilation now complains about the use of ' \addto
\extrasenglish{' in the preamble (used to define cross reference
identifiers). Is this another conflict between XeTeX and ... is it *hyperref
* these overrides refer to?

Would this be the appropriate moment to switch to using *refstyle* for
customised cross referencing? And is doing so a case of going and reading
that packages documentation? I can't find much in the LyX help files beyond
the fact that the option exists. One of the benefits of the hyperref
approach is not having to switch each cross ref instance to the *Formatted
reference* type...

3. custom character-style error
Finally, and this is more an annoyance than an impediment, my custom
character style module (based on info from Rob
Oakeshttp://blog.oak-tree.us/index.php/2009/11/14/customize-lyx-character-styles)
generates an *Undefined flex inset *error: 'Flex inset TechnicalDefinition
is undefined because of class conversion from article to article' (and the

Re: LyZ: lyxpipe changes in 2.0?

I just tested this in LyX 2.0 beta 2 on OS X and it worked fine — after I
changed the LyX pipe path (back) to ~/.lyxpipe, which is the default LyZ

Point being I think it's simply down to the pipe file path matching

instructions for upgrade from LyX 1.6.7 to 2.0 beta 1?

2010-11-10 Thread Justin Wood
Hi gang. As LyX 2.0 beta 1 is now released, I thought I'd make the switch
over (OS X 10.6). It installs and runs fine, but as best I can tell there is
no automated import of LyX 1.6.7 settings. Are there any (draft)
instructions available for walking the upgrade path? Are there any backwards
compatibility issues or conflicts to watch out for, or can the existing
LyX-1.6 user directory pretty much just be copied across? Ditto for
migrating actual documents.

Thanks! And very much looking forward to using this shiny new creature.

 Subject: relative path for images
 Hello to all,

 this is surely a very simple question, but I'm a total no-geek and is
 driving me crazy.

 I want to change the absolute path of the figures that I insert (the 90% of
 them as a float) to a relative path, since I'm working from differents
 computers and syncing the files with dropbox. I have found precisely this
 info in these help files, but I'm doing something wrong, since it is not
 working as expected.


This is *exactly* the way I'm writing my thesis. It works fine, though I
won't call it elegant. If it's safe to assume your document and image files
all live within a shared logical root in your Dropbox directory, and all
.lyx files will be in either the single directory or a uniform directory
structure, you can just edit the file path of the target image in the
Graphics dialogue. That is,
+ doc root is /Users/justin/Dropbox/_PhD/thesis
+ image files are then under thesis/_src/images/
+ lyx files are in structure thesis/chapters/ch1/

So once inserting the image file through the Graphics dialogue in an example
file under thesis/chapters/ch1/chapter1.lyx — which will use the full,
system-specific file path — you then edit it to be a relative path. If
example image file is
/Users/justin/Dropbox/_PhD/thesis/_src/images/AR4/Fig7.20-aerosol_effects_schematic-semi-direct.png

then it should be changed to traverse (in my case) two directories back to
the shared root using the standard OS ../ pointer.
*
../../*_src/images/AR4/Fig7.20-aerosol_effects_schematic-semi-direct.png

Hope that makes sense.




 btw, I am using LyX version 1.6.7,so the path idicated in the first link: 
 Layout
 - Document - Praeamble, is the same as Document - Settings - LaTeX
 Preamble, which is the only one I've found ?

 Subject: relative path for images
 Hello to all,

 this is surely a very simple question, but I'm a total no-geek and is
 driving me crazy.

 I want to change the absolute path of the figures that I insert (the 90% of
 them as a float) to a relative path, since I'm working from differents
 computers and syncing the files with dropbox. I have found precisely this
 info in these help files, but I'm doing something wrong, since it is not
 working as expected.


This is *exactly* the way I'm writing my thesis. It works fine, though I
won't call it elegant. If it's safe to assume your document and image files
all live within a shared logical root in your Dropbox directory, and all
.lyx files will be in either the single directory or a uniform directory
structure, you can just edit the file path of the target image in the
Graphics dialogue. That is,
+ doc root is /Users/justin/Dropbox/_PhD/thesis
+ image files are then under thesis/_src/images/
+ lyx files are in structure thesis/chapters/ch1/

So once inserting the image file through the Graphics dialogue in an example
file under thesis/chapters/ch1/chapter1.lyx — which will use the full,
system-specific file path — you then edit it to be a relative path. If
example image file is
/Users/justin/Dropbox/_PhD/thesis/_src/images/AR4/Fig7.20-aerosol_effects_schematic-semi-direct.png

then it should be changed to traverse (in my case) two directories back to
the shared root using the standard OS ../ pointer.
*
../../*_src/images/AR4/Fig7.20-aerosol_effects_schematic-semi-direct.png

Hope that makes sense.




 btw, I am using LyX version 1.6.7,so the path idicated in the first link: 
 Layout
 - Document - Praeamble, is the same as Document - Settings - LaTeX
 Preamble, which is the only one I've found ?

formatting cross references in KOMA-Script and a custom float

2010-09-21 Thread Justin Wood
All,
I've asked a few newbie questions about formatting cross references,
explicitly (thread
herehttp://thread.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general/65678)
and within a thread
(herehttp://thread.gmane.org/gmane.editors.lyx.general/65312)
where Jürgen Spitzmüller helped me define a custom boxfloat inset. After
many (many) hours, I've finally managed to figure out how to do it all,
so... I thought it might be of some small use to report back. A big part of
the problem was me not thinking to say up front that I was using the thesis
template example posted to this list previously, which employs *KOMA-Script
(book)* document class. Another issue which finally let me solve it all was
realising that specifying a different English dialect was breaking the
intended functionality.

My goal was: 1. to get the custom boxfloat cross reference working as for
floats, tables, etc, with the text 'Box' prepended; and 2. change default
behaviour so that section, subsection, subsubsection are all referred to as
'section'.

*Solution*:


   - by default references in this are simply the numbers, and you have to
   do something to them to get the naming we want. Jürgen quite rightly
   suggested the use of

\newrefformat{box}{Box~\negthinspace\ref{#1}}


   - but note that this only works with *Formatted reference* type, as the
  command is specific to \prettyref



   - now the thesis template preamble included these lines to redefine the
   normal \ref command, using the \autoref functionality in {*hyperref*}. *It
   was not working for me.*

\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\mbox{\autoref{#1
\newlength{\abc}
\settowidth{\abc}{\space}
\addto\extras*english*{
 \renewcommand{\equationautorefname}{\hspace{-\abc}}
 \renewcommand{\sectionautorefname}{sec.\negthinspace}
...
}


   - the most important point here is that the reference type commands are
  configured to be* language specific*, and I had not realised that my
  documents being set to language=British simply didn't match extras*
  english*



   - so by changing \extrasenglish to \extrasbritish, these reference
   formatting commands now work correctly.
   - the last issue was a crossref for the custom boxfloat inset. (*NB: the
   label for any boxfloat must be inserted with the caption for numbering to
   work properly.*) I haven't been able to figure out how to define the
   \autoref version for a custom counter type, so for now all boxes must use
   *Formatted reference* type, which allows this command to take effect:

\newrefformat{box}{\mbox{\hyperref[{#1}]{Box~\ref{#1


   - rather than the format suggested by Jürgen (above), I used \hyperref
  and the {Box } text to be consistent with \autoref — the prepended label
  text is then *part of* the hyperlink. And to my happy surprise, it all
  works!

Re: how to add a caption to a Box inset?

2010-09-16 Thread Justin Wood
I've been using this module and it's almost exactly what I need. I changed
the layout to NumberWithin = chapter to give me Box 1.1, 1.2, etc. But I
need to change a few other things... so here's a shopping list:

1. align the caption left, and set font parameters. Can I do that with
{caption} package somehow; if not, where in the LaTeX preamble is that
controlled? (Attempts to change, eg, kern8pt haven't worked.)

2. separate paragraphs with blank line the same as LyX does for normal text;
add blank line after Box caption too.

** 3. make use of cross references to the Box Float label. At the moment
this doesn't work with reference (/ref) or Formatted reference
(/prettyref) modes — both simply produce 'subsection ??'. Most importantly I
just want the reference to be 'Box 1.1', same as for figure floats; the
numbering is crucial.

I'm frustrated not to be able to figure this out for myself but so far LaTeX
is continuing to defeat me...

formatting cross references — \ref, \prettyref, et c

2010-09-16 Thread Justin Wood
Is it possible to control the format of cross references to labels so that I
can specify the text prepended to the label number? I realise LyX
automagically adds 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', and 'Figure', most of
which are fine. But normally I would prefer to simply use 'section' for
actual subsections too.

*Formatted reference* looks to be the place to do this, but I've not been
able to find \prettyref's implementation sufficiently documented for LyX,
and what I have found seems to strongly imply it's use should be avoided.
Nonetheless I tried inserting the \prettyref name definition to my LaTeX
preamble and it did work, but... the text is being prepended to the LyX
'section 1.1', 'subsection 1.1.1', etc, rather than *replacing* it.

Is use of formatted reference really supported, or is there some other way
to do this?

Thanks again.

  There's no special LyX documentation. We just use prettyref as LaTeX
 would.


Yes I appreciate that. (And I've since realised the problem is some sort of
conflict with the document class.)



 and what I have found seems to strongly imply it's use should be avoided.

  Where's that? There are some issues with prettyref, mostly to do with
 internationalization and babel support. That's why 2.0 will by default use
 refstyle instead, we hope.


Other than the passing mention in the User Guide and Customization help
files, mostly some 'robust' discussion on this group from a couple of years
ago which referred to prettyref being effectively unsupported. I might start
working with LyX 2.0 alpha now then actually (suitably forewarned and files
backed up of course).


 Nonetheless I tried inserting the \prettyref name definition to my LaTeX
 preamble and it did work, but... the text is being prepended to the LyX
 'section 1.1', 'subsection 1.1.1', etc, rather than *replacing* it.

  What prettyref command did you use? Prettyref itself predefines several of
 these things, but you should be able to redefine them yourself.


Just this in the preamble, as an example: \newrefformat{sub}{TEST \ref{#1}}

It outputs as 'TEST subsection x.y.z' — the original subsection remains in
place. But that was with a document class of *book (KOMA-script)*, the
thesis template[1].

I just tried it with a new file, all LyX defaults (article class), and the
override works as you'd expect, replacing 'subsection' with 'TEST'. And in
fact it works fine for the box float customisation has Jürgen helped me
with. So obviously the problem is within the *scrbook *document class? I
don't really know how to solve that at this point but at least I know where
to look...

Just this in the preamble, as an example: \newrefformat{sub}{TEST \ref{#1}}

It outputs as 'TEST subsection x.y.z' — the original subsection remains in

I just tried it with a new file, all LyX defaults (article class), and the

Re: how to add a caption to a Box inset?

2010-09-16 Thread Justin Wood
I've been using this module and it's almost exactly what I need. I changed
the layout to NumberWithin = chapter to give me Box 1.1, 1.2, etc. But I
need to change a few other things... so here's a shopping list:

1. align the caption left, and set font parameters. Can I do that with
{caption} package somehow; if not, where in the LaTeX preamble is that
controlled? (Attempts to change, eg, kern8pt haven't worked.)

2. separate paragraphs with blank line the same as LyX does for normal text;
add blank line after Box caption too.

** 3. make use of cross references to the Box Float label. At the moment
this doesn't work with  (/ref) or Formatted reference
(/prettyref) modes — both simply produce 'subsection ??'. Most importantly I
just want the reference to be 'Box 1.1', same as for figure floats; the
numbering is crucial.

I'm frustrated not to be able to figure this out for myself but so far LaTeX
is continuing to defeat me...

Thanks all!

how to add a caption to a Box inset?

2010-08-27 Thread Justin Wood
Hi all. I've had a look around but can't seem to find an answer to this
one... I want to create a regular ole framed box (you know, as a
self-contained area for 'aside' or 'extra info' type content), but I can't
figure out how to give it a useful automatic identifier. As in, following
the same naming format that Figure captions do: Box 1, or Box 1.1, etc, and
have this displayed in the top part of the box somewhere.

I've just used Insert — Box (as minipage). If I attempt to insert a
caption, LyX warns me that would be 'Senseless!!!', and doesn't generate
anything other than the caption text (no numbering). I tried wrapping the
box in a float, which then allowed me to insert a caption, but this of
course is treated as a *Figure*, which is not what I'm after (and would mess
up the numbering for any subsequent real figures).

Any help much appreciated!
