jezZiFeR wrote:

 I could open a console, but then I don´t know how to browse the  
 mentioned directory.

You can look up where the temporary directory of LyX resides. In LyX,
just go to the menu 'Tools - Preferences' and look into the 'Paths'
section where the 'Temporary Directory' is listed. This is the directory
where LyX stores every file while processing it.

Next, open the document you wish to work on and compile it. You can see
the log file created during the compiling process from within LyX (menu
'Document - LaTeX Log').

The next step is to open a console window (don't close LyX at this
point, because then it would delete the temp directory!) and browse to
the directory you have looked up. You can change to a directory by
typing 'cd', followed by a space and the directory name, e.g.
,--
¦ C:\cd Temp
`

(Everything before the  is the path you are currently in.) If you have
to go one level up, the command is
,--
¦ C:\Tempcd ..
`
Inside LyX's temp directory, you will find at least one directory whith
a name like 'lyx_tmpdir.gq6580'. The characters after the dot will vary,
but the 'lyx_tmpdir.' part is always the same. If you have more than one
directory, these are leftovers of earlier LyX sessions where LyX was not
properly finished (unless you do not have several LyX instances open at
the same time -- every instance creates one directory). The newest
directory should be the one you are looking for. This directory again
has at least one subdirectory. Every buffer (i.e. every document you
open inside LyX) has its own subdirectory. The first is called
'lyx_tmpbuf0', the second 'lyx_tmpbuf1' and so on. If you close a
document, the directory is deleted. Browse to the appropriate
subdirectory and type the following (only the bit after the ):
,--
¦ C:\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.gq7420\lyx_tmpbuf0bibtex8 -W filename1-blx.aux
¦ C:\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.gq7420\lyx_tmpbuf0bibtex8 -W filename2-blx.aux
`
Thereby, BibTeX will be executed for the appropriate file (you have to
change the filename, of course). If you have more than two files (you
can look that up at the end of the logfile, a file with the extension
.log that resides in the same directory), you have to repeat that for
every file. [Note: if you don't have bibtex8 (bibtex8bit) installed, try
'bibtex' instead of 'bibtex8 -W'. But it would be better to install
bibtex8.]

Afterwards, you go back to your LyX session and compile once again. Then
the references should appear.

This seems very complicated at first sight, but I tried to give a
step-by-step explanation, and I think if you've done that once or twice,
it's not that complicated. However, it would of course be better to have
this done from inside LyX automatically. I don't know if that's
possible, but you could ask on the developer list or file a bug report.

You find the current versions at CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive
Network):
http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/biblatex
http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/biblatex-dw
http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/csquotes

Installation instructions are given in the README files of all of these
packages.

I cannot reproduce that. Are you sure that abbreviate=false is set and 
active? Do you have other settings in biblatex.cfg? Which versions are 
you using? You can easily check the versions by adding \listfiles to 
your preamble, then a file list is appended to the .log file. I use the 
following package versions:

It should be there, and it is in my documents. So you seem to have 
altered something that causes this behaviour. If I use your minimal 
example you sent earlier and add the biblatex options 
'urldate=long,abbreviate=false', everything is fine (and the 
abbreviations disappear).



8---8
\DefineBibliographyStrings{ngerman}{%
 november = {November}
}
8---8


In this case I get the following error:
Package babel Error: You haven't loaded the option ngerman yet.
and I don´t know what this means…


My example uses the language 'ngerman' which you have adapt if you are 
using another language like 'english' or 'german' or whatever. In your 
example you had the following line:

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
So I assume that you are using 'ngerman' as your default language and 
the above example should work.

There is also a free clone called Bitstream Classical Garamond which can
be found on old Corel-Draw-CDs (4 and 8, AFAIK; I have Corel Draw 4).
These old CDs can be purchased at Ebay, for instance. The font metrics
needed for use with LaTeX can be found at http://www.gaehrken.de/tex/.

Of course this is just a clone of the 'old' Sabon and not of Sabon Next.

Configure fails

2009-05-15 Thread Dominik Waßenhoven
Dear LyX users,

if I try to re-configure LyX, it fails. The following is shown when I
start LyX with '-dbg lyxrc':

,--
¦ File .../configure.py, line 11, in module 
¦   import sys, os, re, shutil, glob
¦ ImportError: No module named os
`

The module os (os.py) is in 'C:\Programme\Python\Lib', and I put this
directory in the path prefix as well (additional to
'C:\Programme\Python' which was there already), but it did not work
either.

Any suggestions?

 Since there didn't seem to be a fast, cheap, and easy way to define
 the body text properties for things in one branch and not another, I
 thought I'd use the greyed-out notes and just put them all in one

 printed copies.  Since I'm working with some people who often mark up

I use the following for greyed-out notes (put it in your preamble):
8---8
\usepackage{framed}
\usepackage{etoolbox}

\newbool{lyx:iffootnote}
\boolfalse{lyx:iffootnote}

This way, you have a box when greyed-out is used in the text, and you
have a sign in the margin as well as signs in the text if greyed-out is
used in footnotes.

Of course you can customize the font (emphasize, sans serif, whatever)
just for the notes.

Regarding upper case after dots in strings like 'ibid.' etc.: You have
to use the optional argument to the cite command for this, e.g.
\cite[cfr.][]{FaustiniBraga}, then 'ibid.' or 'id.' don't get
capitalized. You can also achieve this from within LyX. See the

Well, in some circumstances, it would be quite useful to have a capital
sharp s, e.g. when printing my last name in small caps. But it is
debatable whether a capital sharp s is correct German. At the moment, it
is only standardised in a technical sense. But if it will be common
practice in the next years, it will maybe also make its way into the
DUDEN, who knows...

 What's the purpose of \newcommand*{\OriginalQuotation}{}? I've always done 
 the 
 \let statements without first declaring them as a new command. Do you gain 
 anything by predeclaring them?

If \OriginalQuotation is already defined, you get an error message, so
you cannot inadvertently override an existing command.
