   Hi Rainer,
  
   I'm not exactly sure what you're asking for, but I can tell you how
   things work in my book Rapid Learning for the 21st Century, which is
   based on the
   Book document class. That book has an Appendix called Example: SSH.
  
  
   On the Appendix's chapter page, it looks like this:
  
   Appendix A
   Example: SSH
 
  Yes - in front of the consecutive numbering (A, B, C,... ) for the
   different sections in the appendix, I want to have the word Appendix 
 as
   you describe it.
 
  I am not worried about the Table of Contents, as I don't have one.
 
  Rainer
 
   In the table of contents, it looks like this:
  
   A Example: SSH
  
   Is this what you're already getting, what you'd like to get, or
 neither?
  
   Thanks

 Rainer,

 What document class are you using?


 OK - I am back.

 I am using article (Springer svjour3/global), but it is the same with th
 normal article class.



 Do me a favor. Using the Book document class, make a brand new document
 with
 one chapter and one appendix, and see if it comes out the way I described,
 and
 let us know what happened.


 That is similar to what I want - only that I want it to be in one line.
 instead of (see attached example) which results in

 1 This happens rst
 2 And this next
 A Some additional info
 B Some more additional info

 i would like to have:

 1 This happens rst
 2 And this next
 Appendix A Some additional info
 Appendix B Some more additional info

 And I can not use a different document class.

 Cheers,

 Rainer

The fancyhdr package is a default on most TeX distributions. If you
selected a page style of fancy and didn't receive any error messages
when viewing the pdf or dvi, you have the the fancyhdr package
installed. You can learn about the package and how to use it from its
documentation:

Changes are put into Document-Settings-LaTeX Preamble:

\cfoot{}\lhead{}\rhead{\thepage}
\renewcommand\headrulewidth{0pt}

Page 14 talks about it a little bit from the fancyhdr package docs.
So, if you wanted to change the right header font and size to \Huge
you would put:

\newcommand{\helv}{\fontfamily{phv}\fontseries{b}\selectfont}
\rhead{\Huge\helv \thepage}

Or you could change it to your own font name, it's just a name and arbitrary.

\newcommand{\myfont}{\fontfamily{phv}\fontseries{b}\selectfont}
\rhead{\Huge\myfont \thepage}

A little googling to find what options are available for \fontfamily
yielded the fonts in the attached fonts.txt. I'm sure there are others
if you wanted to search. From my testing the fourth letter doesn't
work. So, the options would just be 'pag, pbk, pcr, phv, pnc, ppl,
ptm'.

Obviously, if you don't want it to be bold then remove \fontseries{b},
and you can set what size you want the text to be by following (at the
bottom of the page):

http://texnik.dante.de/cgi-bin/mainFAQ.cgi?file=fonts/fonts#table

based on your default font size.

Hope that helps get you started.

 hi all!

 am a total newbie to lyx (although am halfway through reading the
 tutorial). am using Lyx 1.5.6 on an Ubuntu 8.10 laptop.

 Am a computer science student developing software for my final semester
 project work. Am currently documenting the SRS (software requirements
 specification).

 Here is a ink to the SRS (just the toc) 
 http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/394046/SRS_FINAL.pdf

Can't access the file. Server is timing out.

 doubt #1: can someone please tell me why the TOC is repeating? am using
 the article (koma+script) document class.

How did you create it in the first place? In LyX and hence LaTeX you
don't manually type in your TOC, it is automatically generated for
you. In LyX this is done with 'Insert-List / TOC-Table of Contents'.

 doubt #2: the tutorial talks about so many keyboard shortcuts

 a). can someone please link me to a concise list of keyboard shortcuts
 in lyx?

http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/KeyboardShortcuts

 doubt #3: the tutorial also talks about lyx code, how am to type the lyx
 code every time? I mean I know there is a insert tex code button in the
 toolbar but do I have to hit it every time I have to type the tex code?
 (if that's the only way, then i think that would slow down the
 productivity don't ya think?) if not, please tell me a short cut key
 binding or something that would let me insert tex code instantaneously
 as am typing. ( i hate having to use the mouse all the time).

Ctrl-L

 doubt #3: once am done typing the TOC , then? how do i start typing the
 actual material of the sections? (like ...don't I have to insert
 something so that it references the same in the TOC? I don't quite
 know how to put it better :/)

As stated earlier you don't manually type the TOC. You should read
more documentation on LyX and specifically on working with LaTeX.

You would first insert the TOC using the Insert toolbar described
above and then insert sections and subsections using the toolbar
shortcuts or keyboard combination's, but at this point you really need
to spend some time reading more documentation as these are very very
basic questions about LyX functionality.

 P.S: if there is any other detail i have missed, please let me know.

 tutorial). am using Lyx 1.5.6 on an Ubuntu 8.10 laptop.

 Am a computer science student developing software for my final semester
 project work. Am currently documenting the SRS (software requirements
 specification).

 Here is a ink to the SRS (just the toc) 
 http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/394046/SRS_FINAL.pdf

Can't access the file. Server is timing out.

 doubt #1: can someone please tell me why the TOC is repeating? am using
 the article (koma+script) document class.

How did you create it in the first place? In LyX and hence LaTeX you
don't manually type in your TOC, it is automatically generated for
you. In LyX this is done with 'Insert-List / TOC-Table of Contents'.

 doubt #2: the tutorial talks about so many keyboard shortcuts

 a). can someone please link me to a concise list of keyboard shortcuts
 in lyx?

http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/KeyboardShortcuts

 doubt #3: the tutorial also talks about lyx code, how am to type the lyx
 code every time? I mean I know there is a insert tex code button in the
 toolbar but do I have to hit it every time I have to type the tex code?
 (if that's the only way, then i think that would slow down the
 productivity don't ya think?) if not, please tell me a short cut key
 binding or something that would let me insert tex code instantaneously
 as am typing. ( i hate having to use the mouse all the time).

Ctrl-L

 doubt #3: once am done typing the TOC , then? how do i start typing the
 actual material of the sections? (like ...don't I have to insert
 something so that it references the same in the TOC? I don't quite
 know how to put it better :/)

As stated earlier you don't manually type the TOC. You should read
more documentation on LyX and specifically on working with LaTeX.

You would first insert the TOC using the Insert toolbar described
above and then insert sections and subsections using the toolbar
shortcuts or keyboard combination's, but at this point you really need
to spend some time reading more documentation as these are very very
basic questions about LyX functionality.

 P.S: if there is any other detail i have missed, please let me know.

 This doesn't have to do with qt4. For some reason, the lyx2lyx program is
 apparently not being copied to its installed location. I'd have a look at
 /usr/local/share/lyx and see what you have there. Is something preventing
 the copy?

 The other thing that strikes me is the fact that you have a space in the
 path to the sources My Downloads. It's possible that make is choking on
 that. Try moving the tree somewhere else, with no spaces.

 author-year.

 Here's my problem,
 I have written my Master's Thesis in the document class article but I am

 references are incorrectly formatted).

 I saw in this forum that there is a package called apacite, I have installed
 this in MikTeX, however I can't get it to work. When I compile the document
 I get an error message which says LyX LaTeX error - Undefined control

 Can anyone help with this? I don't want to go back to using MS Word :(

There is a package conflict between apacite and Natbib. Please read

It seems that apacite needs to be loaded before Natbib, but because of
the LyX document settings Natbib will be loaded first. So, the real

An ugly workaround, IF, you only need to use the \cite command would
be to change the bibliography setting back to Default (numerical) from
Natbib. Then put (in your preamble):

\usepackage(apacite)
\usepackage[authoryear]{natbib}

Otherwise, if you need to use something other than \cite, you'd have
to use ERT rather than the LyX dialog to insert bibliography
citations. But, if you just need to do this for one paper it may not
be a bad way to go. It does work, it's just not pretty.

 Hello I am very new to this ...

 I'm using LyX 1.5.5 in Windows XP.
 I'm using JabRef 2.3.1 to manage my bibliography.
 I'm using the document class 'article' and have bibliography set to Natbib
 author-year.

 Here's my problem,
 I have written my Master's Thesis in the document class article but I am
 required to format my references according to APA manual, 5th edition. I
 have tried the packages called apalike and apalike2, these work but they get
 it almost but not quite right, (volume numbers aren't emphasised and inbook
 references are incorrectly formatted).

 I saw in this forum that there is a package called apacite, I have installed
 this in MikTeX, however I can't get it to work. When I compile the document
 I get an error message which says LyX LaTeX error - Undefined control
 sequence, repeated many times! This also happens on my computer at home
 where I'm running v. 1.5.3 in Ubuntu HH.

 Can anyone help with this? I don't want to go back to using MS Word :(
 Thank you

This created two additional sections with titles Greek and Subscripts

Then when you insert a nomenclature item, in the 'Sort as:' box you

 familiar with the structure of Lyx.



 I want to produce author (year) or author [year] style references in the

 seem to do this despite author-year appearing in the natbib style box.
 When I go to Insert/Citation, the Formatting dialog box is grayed out.

 bombs when running Latex to produce printed output.  I am willing to
 install whatever style files I need, but I don't have any way of
 figuring out what I need.  Any help out there?



 Thanks in advance,

The formatting box is grayed out until you actually Add an Available
Citation to the Selected Citations area. Have you done this?

Also, when using Natbib you must use a Natbib compatible .bst style
file like plainnat, abbrvnat, or unsrtnat.

There is a compatibility issue between Natbib and REVTeX, you will
need to read through section 15.1 of the REVTeX documentation if you
need to use this class:

http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/revtex/src/revtex4.pdf

Adding the 'round' option to Document-Settings-Options fixes the

There is a problem with your TeX installation. I'm assuming you have

problem in LyX. I remember at times on this list there was a problem
with MiKTeX if you selected anything but the default options during

The only thing I can suggest at this point is to ensure you have an

 Hello there!



 I use the Windows version of Lyx 1.5.6.  I cannot understand the

 Believe me, I have tried, but the answers are simply not comprehensible
 to people like me, who while not computer illiterate, are not intimately
 familiar with the structure of Lyx.



 I want to produce author (year) or author [year] style references in the
 text.  Checking natbib under Documents/Settings/Bibliography does not
 seem to do this despite author-year appearing in the natbib style box.
 When I go to Insert/Citation, the Formatting dialog box is grayed out.



 I have downloaded a number of .bst files, for example, qje.bst, but Lyx
 bombs when running Latex to produce printed output.  I am willing to
 install whatever style files I need, but I don't have any way of
 figuring out what I need.  Any help out there?



 Thanks in advance,

The formatting box is grayed out until you actually Add an Available
Citation to the Selected Citations area. Have you done this?

Also, when using Natbib you must use a Natbib compatible .bst style
file like plainnat, abbrvnat, or unsrtnat.

 I am using plainnat and have set the style to author-year.  Indeed, when

There is a compatibility issue between Natbib and REVTeX, you will
need to read through section 15.1 of the REVTeX documentation if you
need to use this class:

http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/revtex/src/revtex4.pdf

Adding the 'round' option to Document-Settings-Options fixes the
problem with the default article class and Natbib.

There is a problem with your TeX installation. I'm assuming you have
MiKTeX installed. If it were installed correctly there wouldn't be
problem in LyX. I remember at times on this list there was a problem
with MiKTeX if you selected anything but the default options during
the install also if you didn't have an open internet connection.

The only thing I can suggest at this point is to ensure you have an
open internet connection and update or re-install MiKTeX.

Ok. I understand now. You're just not using the program correctly :-}.

Math equations are not adjusted with 'paragraph settings'. There are
two types of equations in LyX: Inline and Display. Inline is an
equation that is inline with text and Display is an equation centered
on its own line.

To access the two types use: Insert-Math-Inline Formula or Display
Formula. Alternatively, you can use Command-M for Inline formula and
Command+shift-M for Display formula on MacOSX.

You may also want to take some time to read through some of the
documentation available in the Help menu. For instance: Help-User's
Guide Chapter 5 or Help-Math. These issues are explained there.
