mathspec disables instant preview

2012-02-25 Thread d c
I ahve just discovered, arduously, that using mathspec prevents preview from 
working. Is this a bug, feature, or other?

sorry I realized I was being perhaps cryptic.

specifically:
\usepackage[no-math]{mathspec} 
in my preamble seems to make instant preview stop functioning. 
I am using xetex, and I have tried many combinations of settings, but it all 
seems to boil down to this line.
I want to be able to set the font for math. 
Perhaps another package for this exists?

In a possible related vein, I also noticed that 
adding the following to my preamble also is breaking instant preview:

\newtheoremstyle{mytheorem} %hnamei
{\topsep}%  Space above
{\topsep}%  Space below
{\ttfamily} % hBody fonti
{} % hIndent amounti1
{\ttfamily} % hTheorem head fonti
{:} % hPunctuation after theorem headi
{.5em} % hSpace after theorem headi2
{} % hTheorem head spec (can be left empty, meaning ‘normal’)i
\theoremstyle{mytheorem} % this should set the current theorem style to 
mytheorem?
\newtheorem{mytheorem}{My Theorems} %this loads the new theorem style and uses 
My Theorems as its heading 
%\newtheorem{thm}{Theorem}
--

These may or may not be related. They work (that is to say act to break) 
independently of each other.

Re: install not finding classes in miktek

Furthermore, I just uninstalled lyx and miktex and reinstalled from the bundled

Same problem. 

Any clues at all???





Re: install not finding classes in miktek

OK, so now I reinstalled everything not in Program Files, thinking perhaps the 
UAC in Vista was causing the problem. I noticed as it was installing that:
checking for an HTML previewer...
+checking for firefox...  no
checking for a Postscript previewer...
+checking for ghostview...  no

this seems strange since these are installed on my system...WUWT?

checking for an OpenDocument/OpenOffice viewer...
+checking for oowriter...  no
why not check for libreoffice?

opening lyx...fingers crossed...

YAYmy classes are there!! thank god for small favors

install not finding classes in miktek

2012-01-31 Thread d c
I just installed version 2.0.2 Friday nov. 25 2011

When I open files, if I look under settings, document class,
all my document classes are reported as missing.

The following info may or may not be relevant:
when I go to tool tex information it seems to have the various class files in 
various places, such as 
C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex
C:\ProgramData\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex
C:\Users\HP_User\AppData\Roaming\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\latex

First I installed, encountered the error, uninstalled, manually removed the 
folder in program files and in C:\Users\my user\AppData\Roaming, and then 
reinstalled as administrator

I have tried various solutions from the mailing list, e.g.
I have tried reconfiguring restarting
I have tried setting my install packages on the fly both to yes and to no
I ahve tried updating my file name database

clues?

thx in advance
