How to use IFAC templates with LyX?

2021-10-22 Thread Bernt Lie
I'm a relatively simple user of LyX, and plan to submit a paper to an IFAC 
conference (International Federation of Automatic Control). I haven't used 
plain LaTeX for ages...


How can I use LyX with the IFAC templates (found at the bottom of Submission | 
Mathmod 2022, under 
Full Contribution...?

[cid:image001.png@01D7C72A.D7575E20]

Is it *possible* to use this template with LyX?

Subject: hyphen for range

As I recall in LaTeX there are 3 different hyphen marks which are written as 
'-', '--', and '---'.  The 2nd one is for a range as in 1--2 days.  How is this 
entered in lyx?

Thanks,

RE: LyX acting differently between computers

2020-10-30 Thread Bernt Lie
I use LyX with MikTeX on Windows daily. It is not problem-free, so I'm open to 
test out TeXLive (or LuaTeX?).

The important questions wrt. TeX distribution is whether the choice *limits*...
* available styles/packages/etc. that can be used,
* stability,
* ease of use
* speed of operation

The LyX project itself does not have an official view about TeX distributions, 
but our experience has tended to be that TeXLive is more reliable than MikTeX 
on Windows.

RE: Simplify complex graph from matplotlib

2020-10-01 Thread Bernt Lie
I had a similar problem lately: I produced a scatterplot using matplotlib (or 
rather: the matplotlib back-end for Plots in Julia), and stored the file as 
*.svg – with a file size of some 5 MB. I tried to subsample the plot, e.g., by 
using only 10% of the points. Still a relatively large plot file.

In the end, I saved the file as a *.png file, which took some 150-200 kB. Not 
as pretty, but close enough.

Subject: Simplify complex graph from matplotlib

Don't know if this is more appropriate for lyx or mpl.  I have a couple of 
graphs with a large number of points.  They were exported from matplotlib as 
pdf, and produced large files.  After including in lyx, the resulting pdf takes 
a long time to load.

The plots don't really need so many points at all.  Other than going back to 
the mpl source to plot fewer points, is there a way to fix this?

Thanks,
Neal

RE: LyX 2.3.5

2020-06-10 Thread Bernt Lie
Hm… here is what I did:

  1.  I first installed MikTeX to the default path that it suggested, and used 
my private path for LyX. No success.
  2.  Next, I deleted LyX, and tried to re-install it to the default path. But 
the default path never showed up; no matter whether I deleted every file 
related to LyX, it still stuck to the original path that I had defined.
  3.  I then entered “regedit”. I deleted every mention of LyX in various forms 
from “regedit”.
  4.  Next, I tried to reinstall LyX. Now it suggested a default path. I 
installed LyX to this default path.
  5.  Now, it seems to work.

In summary: LyX doesn’t properly clean up the registry when I uninstall it.

Another observation…

  *   Before I deleted the registry elements and installed LyX to my private 
directory, installation of LyX took some one hour or something.
  *   After I deleted elements from “regedit”, the installation took a couple 
of minutes.

So… I have uninstalled both MikTeX and LyX, and try to re-install them.

With MikTeX, I do the following:


  1.  Choose to install it under directory 
“C:\\Program_Files\MikTeX\MikTeX_2_9” instead of the default location 
(“…\AppData\Local\Programs\MikTeX 2.9\”)
  2.  Settings: Preferred paper size – A4, Install missing pagackages 
on-the-fly: Yes
  3.  After MikTeX has installed packages, I check for updates. There were 8 
updates, which I installed from “A random package repository on the internet”.

Next, I install LyX 2.3.5:

  1.  I install LyX in directory “C:\Program_Files\LyX\LyX_2_3”
  2.  The LyX installer finds MikTeX at 
“C:\Program_Files\MikTeX\MikTeX_2_9\miktex\bin\x64”.



  1.  LyX takes some time to install, and downloads some missing packages:

  1.  When LyX has been installed, I try to open a template. Result:

  2.  Is the problem that I have not chosen the default installation path of 
LyX and/or MikTeX?

[KZLG]
I just had the same error earlier this morning. From my experience:

  1.  Probably because the filename database has not been updated. This may 
happen when you install MikTeX as an administrator (user who has administrative 
rights), but call LyX as that same user but without invoking his administrative 
rights; or if you have followed some variant of this.
In general, it is best to install as an administrator but call your 
applications as an ordinary user (i.e. user without any administrative rights), 
and so keep a strict difference between the two types of users.
  2.  Perhaps. You might try it if you cannot follow the advice under A.

It's been quite a while since I used MikTeX, but I vaguely recall that

something of an omnibus installation with all sorts of packages (and a large

No, LyX will fail again as soon as Inkscape 1.0 is installed (and you need to 
reconfigure). Inkscape 1.0 also does not work with LyX for other reasons 
(replacing the reconfigure script does not suffice to fix that).

I suggest you only upgrade to Inkscape 1.0 after LyX 2.3.5 is out (which will

This will be fixed in LyX 2.3.5.

LyX configuration needed to be adapted to inkscape 1.0 (which changed the 
registry entry among other things).

Workaround is to downgrade Inkscape to 0.96.

I notice one difference. On my old computer, MikTeX is given path (System

When I try to open LyX, I’m told: LyX: No textclass is found

[cid:image001.png@01D634CA.BB69F590]

As far as I know, I have installed everything the way I used to do.

I notice one difference. On my old computer, MikTeX is given path (System 
variables):

  *   C:\Program Filex (x86)\MikTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\

while on the new computer, MikTeX is given path (User variables for …):

  *   C:\Users\...AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\

Questions:

  1.  Any reasons for this change in path?
  2.  What can I do to fix the set-up? (Note: during installation of LyX, LyX 
apparently detected the correct path on the new machine.)

Thanks!

Directory for BibTeX style files -- where do I set it?

2020-03-31 Thread Bernt Lie
I’m using LyX 2.3.4.3 on Windows 10, with MikTeX distribution 2.9.

Lately, LyX has had problems with finding the location of *.bst styles in 
MikTeX. I had to manually browse through the MikTeX directory on my computer to 
find the directory of the relevant *.bst files. Also, the entire path of the 
directory shows up in the style field:
[cid:image002.jpg@01D60749.26083F10]

In documents, the Style shows up without the path (e.g., just “agsm”).

Question:

  1.  What is going on?
  2.  Where in LyX do I set the path for *.bst files so that LyX lists all 
styles?

[I also tried to update MikTeX, but it has one of it’s hick-ups. Tells me 
“Something went wrong”, and then ask me whether I want to se more information 
(“Yes”, “No”, etc.). When I click on “No”, the same message pops up 2 more 
times... Very annoying.]

LyX 2.3.x: how to insert externally generated code for table?

2020-03-04 Thread Bernt Lie
I’m running a program which generates LaTeX code for a table.

Question:

  *   How can I insert this table into LyX?
  *   I want the table to have the same type of preview as Tables I set up 
manually inside of LyX
  *   I want the table to be a floating table.
  *   Such tables may be large, so I may want to make it multi-page, and 
possibly rotate it.

Example:


\begin{tabular}{rrr} \hline\hline \textbf{Temperature [K]} & \textbf{Pressure 
[bar]} & \textbf{Specific volume liq [m3/kg.1e3]} \\ \texttt{Float64} & 
\texttt{Float64} & \texttt{Float64} \\\hline 273.15 & 0.00611 & 1.0 \\ 275.0 & 
0.00697 & 1.0 \\ 280.0 & 0.0099 & 1.0 \\ 285.0 & 0.01387 & 1.0 \\ 290.0 & 
0.01917 & 1.001 \\\hline\hline \end{tabular}

Can I insert the table within LyX? Or do I have to insert the table in a LyX 
document and insert the code via an ASCII editor?

Thanks for suggestions!

BR,

Thanks for all your hard work!

I downloaded the *.exe install version on Windows 10 using Edge (Chromium). 
When I tried to open the downloaded file, Edge told me that if I opened the 
file, it could destroy my computer.

I assume this is just a warning because the *.exe file has not been registered 
in a way that Edge can recognize it??

Without a MWE on which to experiment, it's hard to be certain. A couple of

multiline math formula (such as a "gathered" environment). Another is to click

I have attached a minimal LyX document with the *.svg file that I use. In the 
figure path of LyX, I have put the figure in a subdirectory “figs” – which can

I’ve tested a bit more, and it is the insertion of the *figure* that causes the 
problem. My “trick” of getting multiline math by inserting a table within a 
table cell works fine.
So: is it possible to vertically center the figure at the insertion point?

-B
What I proposed above works. Put the cursor in the "Geometry" cell, right 
click, select Settings..., and in the Column settings section of the Table 
Settings tab set a fixed width for the column. That enables the Vertical 
alignment control, which you set to Middle. You might want to horizontally 
center as well; that's up to you.
I've attached a modified version of the MWE.

Thanks! I get it! I need to *specify width* in order to *enable vertical

Perhaps do one and export to LaTeX and compile.

If that works, find how and where this is inserted (in the .tex file) and add

If that compiles, run a tex2lyx on it.  If that works, it should be a

LyX & compiling conference proceedings from PDF files

2019-11-30 Thread Bernt Lie
I’m attempting to compile conference proceedings using LyX 2.3.3.



I have successfully inserted one PDF-file into LyX (Insert/File/External 
Material). Some questions:



1.   Do I have to insert the files one by one (some 40 files), or can I 
insert all at the same time? [I guess I can experiment with this...]

2.   The pdf files are without headers/footers, and without page numbers.

a.   Is it possible to have the files show up at 100% size (they are A4) 
within my A4 size LyX file, and overlay headers and footes defined in the LyX 
file?

b.   Is it possible to overlay page numbers from LyX, i.e., using a global 
counter in LyX (say, preface with roman page numbering i-iv, then papers with 
arab page numbers, say Paper 1 p. 1-6, Paper 2 p. 7-11, etc.)?



Thanks for your suggestions!

That is: I write \ displaystyle from there I enter the mathematical mode and 
write the equation? Thanks and sorry for this basic question.

RE: preparing math exams

2019-04-23 Thread Bernt Lie
The free drawing program Inkscape is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. 
There are extensions (plug-ins) for Inkscape that allows you to write LaTeX 
math in Insckape and have it generate math expressions as drawing objects – I 
use WriteTeX.

The manual for the latest version of LyX also indicates that it is possible to 
write LaTeX syntax in text fields in Inkscape, import the resulting SVG file 
into LyX, and have it typeset as LaTeX math in LyX. I haven’t figured out how 
to do that, but that would be the ideal solution (in the sense that one could 
make LaTeX text in figures have the body font size of the main text...).

Inkscape uses SVG (Structured Vector Graphics) as native file format. This 
works mostly fine.

To prepare functions, etc.: use a math script language (e.g., MATLAB, Python, 
Julia; the two latter are free – personally, I use Julia) and produce a plot, 
then save it as an svg file, importat it into Inkspace, and modify it to your 
hearts desire... changing colors, line types, line thickness, axes color, etc., 
and add text if you need.

For your interest, I recently uploaded version 3 of my diffcoeff package
to CTAN. This provides a command \diff for writing differential
coefficients (derivatives) with multiple options for tweaking the
display, and a command \dl for writing differentials with an option for
inserting a specified amount of space before the differential --
something you might want to do in an integral for instance to separate
the integrand from the dx.

Something I always do, and it might help you too. Before including any 
Inkscape-constructed image in LyX or HTML, I always
File->Clean_up_document and File->Save_as->Plain_SVG. This tends to get
all the "inkscapisms" out of the image. Whenever I have problems with text not 
fitting in boxes in the ultimate viewer (a web page or PDF), I always convert 
text to curves and then once again clean up and save as plain.

The graphic from the tickets shows up incorrectly in 2.2.3 but fine on
2.3.1 under Win10. If I understood the fix correctly, then it is to use the

LyX & svg files

2018-11-23 Thread Bernt Lie
I use LyX 2.3.1 on Windows 10, 64 bit.

It seems like LyX sometimes has problems handling SVG files, specifically lines 
with arrow heads.

Here is one example; the original file in Inkscape:

[cid:image003.jpg@01D4833F.16CE63B0]

In Inkscape, this looks fine. However, when I import this svg file into a LyX 
float figure, this is what it looks like:

[cid:image004.jpg@01D4833F.16CE63B0]

Observe that some of the arrowheads seems to have a “broken neck”...

If I generate a pdf from Inkscape and import the drawing as a pdf into LyX, 
then there is no problems. But then the preview in LyX looks pixelated.

Q: where is the problem? Is it Inkscape that uses corrupted svg files, or is it 
LyX that doesn’t properly handle arrow heads?

RE: PDF graphics is blurred in LyX when scaled

2018-11-12 Thread Bernt Lie
I think that the problem here is that even when the imported graphics is *.svg 
file or a *.pdf file generate from a *.svg file (e.g., using Inkscape) -- and 
hence definitely is vector graphics, the preview in LyX often looks blurred 
when the LyX preview is scaled up to be visible on high resolution screens.



As an example, the following drawing has been made in Inkscape as purely vector 
graphics drawing (*.svg, saved as *.pdf at 300 dpi). When scaling it to 200% in 
LyX, it starts to look muddled – LaTeX math which is produced as vector 
graphics starts to look unreadable on screen:



[cid:image003.jpg@01D47A8E.3F65AE00]



Maybe this helps if I save the pdf file at a higher resolution? I.e., maybe 
Inkscape converts the drawing to bitmapped PDF?



I would have loved to import the file as a *.svg file, but the LyX previewer 
and PDF generator sometimes messes up the arrows :-( .

First: for the "LyX: Graphics" window (double-click on inserted graphics), 
there is a "LaTeX and LyX options" tab which holds a section on "Graphics 
Group". This is a super feature, and allows me to create a new, named group. 
Thus, if I import a new graphics and assign the graphics to a named group 
(e.g., "MATLAB plot"), I can later on change the features of one plot within 
this named group, and... presto... all the graphics with the same named group 
are changed to adhere to this new setting.

Settings include: Scale on screen (i.e., within LyX), and Scale graphics (i.e., 
in the produced PDF file). This is a very important feature to achieve 
*consistency* in the document.

LyX... the most important missing feature [for me]...

2018-11-05 Thread Bernt Lie
LyX is great in many ways. However, there is one thing that I really, really 
miss... I write papers and notes that contain a mixture of math and computer 
code/simulation results.

First: for the "LyX: Graphics" window (double-click on inserted graphics), 
there is a "LaTeX and LyX options" tab which holds a section on "Graphics 
Group". This is a super feature, and allows me to create a new, named group. 
Thus, if I import a new graphics and assign the graphics to a named group 
(e.g., "MATLAB plot"), I can later on change the features of one plot within 
this named group, and... presto... all the graphics with the same named group 
are changed to adhere to this new setting.

Settings include: Scale on screen (i.e., within LyX), and Scale graphics (i.e., 
in the produced PDF file). This is a very important feature to achieve 
*consistency* in the document.

Second: a Program Listing object has many, many more settings than the Graphics 
object.  It would be *very useful* with a similar possibility to create "named 
group" for Program Listings, so that I can assing a program listing to such a 
named group.

The way it is now, it is virtually impossible to ensure a consistent document 
wrt. Program Listing. Yes, it is possible to create a dummy document with a 
tailor made program listing, and copy+paste from this document. That way, I can

Re: auto fixing mispelled words

2018-11-04 Thread Bernt Lie
I sympathize with those who need auto correction. For myself:
* I'm decent with touch typing
* However, when typing on "cheap" keyboards, I do more mistakes... some 
keyboards may fail to register a key stroke if hit slightly off center

However, I have become very sceptical towards auto correction based on 
experience with Word+Outlook and smartphones...
* Word tries to auto detect language, and does a poor job - resulting in 
numerous problems
* I have tried to tailor make Office auto correction, but my settings often 
have been reset the next time I use the tool, or after upgrades.
* Auto correction may introduce bad mistakes that I sometimes don't see... my 
smartphone once auto-changed the name of an ice cream chain to the Spanish word 
for one-night stand in a communication in Spanish... which was not taken well...
* I often use technical words that are not in the dictionary; auto correction 
would then be disastrous.

So, for me, auto-correction would be a total turn-off unless I could turn it 
off, and *know* that my setting was not changed by "the system".

I would rather live with my few mistakes, than use a system that introduce 
arbitrary mistakes that were not intended.

No.  The computer would not _rearrange_ letters.  It would effect a
string subsitution, oblivious to whether any of the letters in the
replacement string appeared in the original string.

It doesn't just happen.  The screen displays what you entered.

> Is that mistake a matter of 'learning'?

Yes, unequivocally.

Not necessarily. There are several forms of mild dyslexia in which the person 
swaps letters or even "fingers" (typing an "o" instead of an "a," for example). 
I know this from experience because I have the problem. And yes, working hard 
and being attentive solves many (not all, mind you) of the "accidents," but 
still... I've been writing in computers almost every day for the last 30 years 
and still have many silly "typos:" in my case it's not a matter of practice.

And that's just a first point. An autocorrect tool can also be useful for 
people without those problems: As a matter of fact, LyX actually perform an 
autocorrect every time it changes two dashes into an en-dash and three into an 
em-dash. Maybe this feature could be generalized. Think of changing the first 
character of a phrase into caps, for example, or setting a substitution pattern 
to change a couple of characters into a symbol or a longer text you need to 
insert several times in the document. It doesn't need to be something fixed (in 
fact, it shouldn't!), just a table that any user can fill at will: first 
column, what you want to substitute, second column, the substitution, and then 
the system perform those changes in real time. LibreOffice has such tool and 
yes, most of the elements in their default table are just a list of stupid 
emojis, but that does not mean the feature is stupid.

Just my two cents!

Ricardo

Typing is a learned skill, involving multiple processes.  I don't know

If it's truly a matter of your not understanding the difference
between “informazioen” and “informazione”, then you need to look into
how better to learn orthography.

Yes, I confirm that this fixes the problem:
* In "Documents > Settings... > Formats", I change "Default output set to" from 
"PDF(XeTeX)" to "Default".
NOTE: this does not have immediate affect! I need to:
* save the document with this settings change,
* close LyX,
* open LyX
* open the changed document

I'm curious: 
* why on earth should the behavior in LyX be related to the chosen output 
format?
* does changing from "PDF(XeTeX)" to "Default" have any side effects?

Thanks. I think I have narrowed down the problem to "Default output set to " 
with "PDF (XeTeX)" in

Can you confirm that the problem goes away if you use the "Default" 
output format? (To force LyX to regenerate the preview you can just save the

Here is my "template_test.lyx" file, which contains displayed math with \text{} 
containing letter "ø". This letter is not displayed wieh I have enabled

You can also try whether making a copy of your problem document and opening the 
copy makes a difference. As far as I remember this should force LyX to

LyX 2.3.1: bug in "\text" mode of equations

2018-10-30 Thread Bernt Lie
I use LyX 2.3.1 (64bit) on 64bit Win 10, latest version, and have Instant 
preview turned on.

I need to insert some text in an equation. Two options:
* \text{my text}
* \mathrm{text}

With \text{}, space is automatically handled. With \mathrm{}, I need to use the 
escape character (backslash) to get space. There are probably also some spacing 
differences -- I assume \text{} is the correct choice if I write text and not 
math.

There is a problem with \text{} if I use Instant preview *on*...: if I include 
character "ø" in the text string, it shows if I turn Instant preview *off*, but 
is removed if I turn Instant preview *off*.

The generated PDF file *includes* the symbol "ø", but ... it does not show up 
in the preview with Instant preview turned *on*. 

Presumably, this is a problem with other non-English ASCII characters, too?

suitable as input for latex.

This explanation is not very clear. In a text document, I checked “Ignore 
format”, and when searching, LyX found none of the expressions I searched for 
[replace $p$ by $\mathfrak{p}$]. When I unchecked “Ignore format”, LyX worked 
as expected.

[Still, it is not clear what is meant by “format”.]

Next, I tested this on a much longer document (close to 700 pages). With 
unchecking “Ignore format” and searching for $\cal{M}$, LyX skipped this LaTeX 
code in a table at the beginning of the document (a “nomenclature” table), but 
found this code in a paragraph in the middle of the document – and also found 
several subsequent occurrences.

Finally, I searched for the same LaTeX string [$\cal{M}$], but this time with 
*checked* “Ignore format”. Contrary to in the test document (searching for 
$p$), this time, LyX found at least one occurrence – but not the first one 
found with unchecked “Ignore format”.
--
To summarize:

  *   Searching for $\cal{M}$ in *math*, and with unchecked “Ignore format” did 
not find occurrences in table cells, but hopefully found occurrences in text 
flows.
  *   With checked “Ignore format”, LyX sometimes found LaTeX math code, and 
sometimes not.

Since they _are_ different, depending of the 'Ignore format', why would one 
expect
to behave the same?
That does of course not mean, that there are no errors in the code.

If you check "Ignore format", the searching is done on text which would be 
exported as
normal text.
The other case is searching on text which would be suitable as input for latex.

RE: The tortured release of 2.3.0 Windows binaries

2018-05-14 Thread Bernt Lie
A slight update on my indicated procedure in #2: I am, of course, no developer 
and no computer scientist. So let me indicate some understanding also for 
decisions made on things I don't understand.

Suppose... updating MikTeX leads to the following:
* the latest MikTeX is not backwards compatible, i.e., documents that used to 
work stop working -- that would be a pain for the guy who provides the Windows 
installation,
* installing the latest MikTeX leads to wiping out currently installed 
templates, etc. for journals, conferences, etc., so that these must be 
reinstalled -- probably something that some people would find a pain, and bitch 
about,
* installing the latest MikTeX has proved to be problematic for some versions 
of Windows (e.g., some users tend to prefer Windows 7 and refuse to update to 
Windows 10, etc., etc.).

In summary: I understand some caution if the guy who provides the Windows 
installation may come in a situation that makes many users "mad". That is never 
a good situation.

However, if there are no problems, for me it would be perfectly fine if the 
installation procedure checked the current installation of MikTeX, and if I 
didn't have the correct one installed, simply informed me:

* "LyX v. 2.3.0 requires the latest installation of MikTeX. You have not 
installed the latest version on your computer, and the installation is 
therefore terminated.

If you want to upgrade to LyX v. 2.3.0, please follow the procedure at www. 
and first upgrade MikTeX to the latest version. NOTE: if you choose to upgrade 
MikTeX, and there are some problems with MikTeX on your computer, you do this 
on your own responsibility."

Or something to that effect...

We are glad to have users on Windows, macOS and Linux/*BSD (maybe haiku
too but I am not so sure). The fact that most of us are linux users
makes things more complicated that it should be. I have actually no idea
of what is the repartition of users across OSes.

So you will not see the developers disparage other OSes than the one
they choose, except in case of intense frustration :)

included floating objects (Figures, Tables, etc.), the preview got messed up. 
Maybe it works better with floats in ordinary paragraphs – I haven’t tested 
that.

But if you have simple paragraphs, that might work.

Subject: Background color in a paragraph

Is there a simple way in lyx to change the background color of some text, maybe 
a paragraph?
I have not been able to find a way to do this natively: the only way I could 
obtain it is by using the "soul" package, then inserting the latex code "\hl{" 
in ERT just before the the text to be highlighted and then a closing "}" at its 
end.

While I agree in general that structure (in this case, bullet item) might be 
something you'd want to carry along, in this particular case I'm pretty sure 
it's a bug. As Bernt says, if you copy a bullet item and paste it into a 
listing, it shows up in the LyX GUI as a bullet item -- but if you preview as a 
PDF, it compiles without the bullet, and the LaTeX source code shows no 
indication of a bullet (or item tag). So there's a mismatch between what you 
see and what you get.

In the particular case of bullet items, I'm not sure there's any virtue to 
carrying the item context with you in a copy/paste. Either you're pasting into 
an itemize environment (in which case it automatically becomes an item) or 
you're not (in which case you most likely do not want it to be an item).

Bernt: Would you care to file a bug ticket for this?

Thanks for answer.


  *   Presumably a feature. If one does a copy and paste, one usually wants the 
format to remain the same.

To me, this does not sound like a feature, but like a bug. LaTeX documentation 
puts a lot of emphasis on the importance of content over looks, and to me it 
seems more logical – in particular in LaTeX and systems with a similar logic 
(e.g., LyX) that it is the local layout where one pastes in text, that actually 
decides on the typesetting – and *not* the source where one copies text from.

I *could* agree on that it may make sense to preserve “font” formatting. But 
not paragraph or list formatting.

The few times I use Word, I almost invariably use paste without formatting (not 
that it works always, though…).

Mathptmx is used for Times Roman by default. It is a stop-gap measure combining 
several fonts for maths.

RE: Display of supported Bibliography styles in LyX?

2018-04-16 Thread Bernt Lie
Thanks, John

The closest style I’ve come across in LyX, is “ACM-Reference-Format”. That one 
is not entirely correct regarding the conference/proceedings style… the *year* 
should be towards the end of the reference, and not just after the author names.

The style is for a conference, and follows the style of conferences for a 
computer language. Unfortunately (in my view), the style for these conferences 
has been defined starting from Word – with no knowledge or care about the 
limitations in LaTeX. [“Limitations” in LaTeX in the sense that it is much more 
difficult to modify layout in LaTeX than in Word, at least for “simple” users…]

In addition to the reference style, I have problems with:

  *   Body font size – is specified as 10.5 point, which is not supported in 
LaTeX. Someone directed me to a package for scaling the font size, but that did 
not work for me. [Some 30 years, a fellow Ph.D.-student found that the 
“optimal” font size for readability was 10.7 point. So there may be some merit 
to 10.5 point. However, for me, 11 point or 12 point would be even better  – 
today.)
  *   Possibly with margins and column gap. And definitely with the top margin 
on the first page.
  *   The font type in the title – doesn’t seem to be changed to Times Roman as 
the remainder of the text is.

A general wish list for LyX could be:

  *   Better explanation for how to use conference styles/templates and journal 
templates with LyX.
  *   The documentation holds some involved description of how to set up Layout 
files. But this seems overly complex (?). Maybe a video would be better.


I fear that new (conference/journal) layouts which are not supported by LyX 
will be more common in the future, as more and more “amateur typographs” 
develop their own styles in Word ☹.

I’ve had problems even with IEEE conference templates… A couple of years ago, I 
used an IEEE conference style that was not supported in LyX, so I had to have a 
student help me using some other tool. And then, IEEE’s own test tool for 
checking whether the papers followed their style, flagged my paper as not 
adhering to their style. Those using the Word style had no problem. I suspect 
that their LaTeX style was not fully according to the requirements tested in 
their test tool…

What journal or style guide are you aiming at? That might help us narrow things 
down. It is not clear to me what you mean by "reference style (Harvard)".
You might want to have a look at the various formats that the bibliographic 
management system Zotero https://www.zotero.org/ supplies 
https://www.zotero.org/styles  and see if there is a reference to the LaTeX

Fair warning though, Zotero supports over 9,000 journal formats and a quick

Title, Author, and Address looks as follows:

When typeset, this is what it looks like:

LyX & conference template...

2018-03-19 Thread Bernt Lie
Hi

I use LyX 2.2 on Windows 10 (64 bit). I need to write some papers for a 
conference, and the conference has a specific template - originally defined for 
Word. I *suspect* the style is quite simple... the main requirements are:


* Paper format = A4. Comment: easy to set up.

* Specific margins... = 17 mm left and right, 25 mm top and bottom. 
Comment: easy to achieve in LyX

* Two columns. Comment: easy to achieve in LyX (column separation 
appears to be ca. 5mm - don't know how to set up that, though).

* No headers/footers (i.e., now page numbers, etc.). But footnotes. 
Comment: don't know to set up this.

* Specified font: New Times Roman. Comment: easy to achieve in LyX, I 
think.

* Font sizes: title should be 17 pt, body font should be 10.5 pt. I'm 
not sure whether there are specific requirements for the headings. 
Verbatim-inline/code inline should be 9.5 pt. Displayed code should be 9pt. 
Comment: don't know how to set up this - standard is body size 10, 11 or 12 pt. 
Code font size is specified as "normal", "small", "large", etc...

* References should have heading "References", un-numbered, same size 
as Section. References themselves should be typeset in 9.5 pt font size. Should 
be ordered alphabetically according to the surname of the furst author. Author 
name should be listed as first name last name. Example...

o   Iain S. Duff and John K. Reid. An Implementation of Tarjan's Algorithm for 
the Block Triangularization of a Matrix. ACM Transactions on Mathematical 
Software, 4(2):137-147, 1978.

Comment: how do I set up BibTeX style for this?


Not directly related to style... where in the LyX documentation does it state 
how to specify that certain figures/tables/equations should go across both 
columns? How should column flow be relative to these "straddling" items? (e.g., 
should the text above such items be balanced so that I read both columns above 
the item before coming to the item in the flow, or should I still read each 
column in turn, and just consider these straddling items as breaks in the flow?

In other words...
--
Text continues in up here, continuing
the first column and   here, with text flowing
then there is a stradd-   down here, and here
ling item  and here, and here,

Xx

with text following  and still continuing after
here... and a new the wide, nuisance item?
column starting
--
Or should the layout be...
--
Text continues in ling item after
the first column and   balanced text
then there is a stradd-   above the item

Xx

with text following  wide item, like here,
here... and a new i.e., the straddling item
column startingworks more or less
below the straddling, like a page break?

A naïve user who is not well versed in MikTeX may start to wonder how one 
updates MikTeX.

I would find it useful that the dialog makes it possible to start MikTeX 
updating.

My recommendation is to completely remove the LyX capability of updating MikTeX 
or switching to MikTeX updater. I always had an issue with this. Instead LyX 
can check the version of MikTeX and if it does not fit to certain requirements, 
it should give a warning smtg like:

This version of LyX is compatible with MikTeX v?,? You have MikTeX v?.?. There 
may be an issue with LyX installation. It is recommended that you update your 
MikTeX to version v?.? before installing LyX.

Hi Scott,

I think it's a bit wordy

How about:


  The LyX installer is going to update MiKTeX to the newest 2.9
  version.

  If you use MiKTeX with other applications and do not want to update
  now, or want to perform the update yourself, cancel the LyX installation.

  Cancel Continue

I might even be tempted to leave the "or want to perform the update yourself" 
out, if they are smart enough to update miktex themselves, then smart enough to 
to cancel if want to update themselves.

Steve

Dear all,

I would appreciate your help on an issue that is holding up the release
of LyX 2.3.0. We are considering to add the following dialog at the
beginning of the LyX 2.3.0 Windows installer:


The LyX installer is going to update MiKTeX to the newest 2.9
version. If you do not use MiKTeX with applications other than LyX,
you likely want to choose "Continue". If you do use MiKTeX with
other applications and do not want to update it now, or want to
perform the update yourself, you can cancel the LyX installation
now.

Cancel Continue


Do you think this dialog would be confusing for the average user?

Thanks for your feedback,

Scott

RE: RE: figure numbering

2018-03-12 Thread Bernt Lie
I guess you have two choices (maybe more...):
* Make the figure a *displayed* figure, not a *floating* figure. In that case, 
the figure will not have numbering -- but you cannot have caption either.
* Number the section where the figure is places.

I guess it is also possible to change the numbering scheme so that the figure 
is not numbered according to heading, but sequentially in the document. I don't 
recall how to do this off my head, but it is possible.

Yes,

I have no section.
It is a 1.5 pages document, and I did not section it.

Is figure placed in unnumbered section/chapter? It looks like the top-level 
heading has not been numbered.
