If it is in the preamble you can try to but it into (the braces of)
something like

\AtBeginDocument{}
or
\NowButAfterBeginDocument{}

Try the following:

1. In the preamble add the following line:
\usepackage{wallpaper}

2. In the document add TeX following code (LyX > Insert > TeX Code):
\thispagestyle{empty}
\ThisCenterWallPaper{1}{path_to_wallpaper}

Chris


Replied thus:

Thanks Chris,

That has done it. Great.

I always use \thispagestyle{empty} in the first page.

I attempted to use \ThisCenterWallPaper{.43}{path_to_wallpaper}

However, I must have done something wrong, because it didn't work. I
tried so many things, in the end. I might have put that in the preamble
instead of ERT. I don't know?

Thank you, it works a treat. You are the man.

That is a not that uncommon LaTeX issue.

Upgrade to the latest LyX and TeX, update the latter to current and run
everything again.

Then I would suggest you make a Minimal Working Example (MWE), ie remove
EVERYTHING which does not produce contribute to the error (including in
the preamble, settings and the like).

That often already allows one to find and correct the issue.

If not export it to TeX and und PDFLaTeX or LUALaTeX on it and see where
in the MWE that error is triggered. Reduce that even further until you
have a bare bones TeX file which reproduces the issue.

Or post the MWE (LyX file) and the image here so one can have a look if
it it sows same behavior on different systems.

Can't you just run this particular graphic (throw in a copy everything

Does someone know what might be causing this?

Actually, I usually do the same thing (because I forget about the paste

Re: 3D graphics for LYX

2021-03-27 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse

There are 375482 tools around to produce professional 3D graphics.

This is the wrong question.  The question must be what data you got, and
what you want to show.

R and knitR are very well suited to produce very good graphics from
within LyX.

To whomever this may concern,

I have recently started using LyX to write scientific papers for my 
undergraduate degree. In writing one of my reports, I found myself 
wanting to change the way the figures are labelled. I have managed to 
change the figure labelling from “Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3…” to 
labelling per section “Figure 1.1, Figure 1.2, Figure 2.1…” However, I 
was wondering if there was a way to change it to say “Fig. 1.1”, instead 
of “Figure 1.1”


I’ve also changed the size of the font inside the caption to be 
smallest. This works great, no issues. However, the figure label itself 
does not change in size. It simply shows “Figure 1.1: Blah Blah Blah, 
this is only an example…”. Is there a way to make the size of the label 
match that of the caption.


Thank in advance to anyone who can help me.

That should read SVG of course.

LyX finds rsvg-convert on the Mac when libsvg is installed, which

Re: best route for org-mode --> LyX

2021-02-08 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
If org-mode can produce LaTeX which tex2lyx can import easily then I
would not go the pandoc route. Note-Taking should produce "predictable"
LaTeX so tex2lyx should get this done.

However, if not, pandoc is very configurable especially through the
template. I modified it extensively and still had to massage the
resulting LyX file a little with Perl (younglings will prefer Python
of course :-)-O) especially when creating beamer files.

BTW here is the link I was talking about

https://github.com/Wandmalfarbe/pandoc-latex-template

There was a pandoc project a while back which aimed at producing LyX
but I could never get that to work so I gave up.

Re: best route for org-mode --> LyX

If you can get it read by pandoc you are halfway there

Creating a template which exports LaTeX that translates 1-1 to LyX
has been done and been discussed here recently.

Re: Please make LyX native language well formed and valid XML

2021-01-23 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Steve,

I do not agree that your patience is relevant.

This is an Open Source project and unless one contributes one takes what
one gets.  Which is a fantastic product.

Personalizing can be easily done with templating for example something
from my prescription writer

\begin_layout Plain Layout
\noindent

\series bold
\size small
Ms $$FIRSTNAME$$ $$SURNAME$$
\end_layout

(which is inside a table cell) and a bit of Perl code looking something
like

use File::Slurp;
my $FILENAME = 'prescription.lyx';
my $FIRSTNAME = 'Jane';
my $SURNAME = 'Doe';
$lyxtext = read_file($FILENAME);
$lyxtext =~ s/\$\$FIRSTNAME\$\$/$FIRSTNAME/g;
$lyxtext =~ s/\$\$SURNAME\$\$/$SURNAME/g;
write_file($FILENAME, $lyxtext);

I have no idea about VimOutliner but if you can get it to export to
MarkDown it's rather simple to make pandoc export LaTeX code which
imports cleanly into LyX, without having to mess with the LyX file.

I NEVER, EVER, number entities myself but let LyX/LaTeX do that for me
(stuff like enumerate/enumerate-resume).

Re: Please make LyX native language well formed and valid XML

2021-01-20 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
While,

I like XML out of principle, but besides that I find the tone of the
request a bit over the top, especially for such a huge undertaking, it
is rare to require LyX documents to be both manually and
programmatically editable.

Messing with the LyX file is admittedly difficult, why do it in the
first place?

I do a lot of LyX stuff with Perl templating (such as prescription
writing) and if that doesn't work have Perl generate LaTeX directly
(such as filling out (tax) forms).

That said, I am rather looking forward to try the new docbook 5 support.
I am sure one will be able to come up with an epub exporter (script)
that can be used as usual from LyX.

And if not, since epub is probably only going to be used for larger
projects (like my handbook), I'll just add a few lines to my Makefile of
502 lines :-)-O.

No drama whatsoever for 10 years or so when downloading from TUG and

I have now installed BasicTeX on one of my boxes as a homebrew cask and

Never mind that I don't know what upstream tex is nor package installed

download BasicTeX from the MacTex site. And then use tlmgr from the
command line to install missing packages individually. Before an update
it is trivial to save the list of installed packages so that one can
re-install them afterwards.

Re: Has anybody lost their book's index when switching to lualatex?

2021-01-02 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Steve,

in my large (handbook) project with 20 child documents and a Makefile of
502 lines (with has a bit of fancy stuff, such as a number of included
PDFs, images, and text files (config files from other servers) all
triggering the LyX run, stamp generation (!) and backup after looking
up which hostname this is running on :-)-O), I still generate the PDF
via (command line) LyX

/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/MacOS/lyx -f -e pdf5 handbook.lyx

which works extremely well and has survived a number of LyX updates.

So my advice and experience is to let LyX take care of this.  But, if I
was exporting to LuaLaTeX I would use latexmk to compile, because that
will also do all the indexing and bibliographing.

Re: How to make an A4 presentation with Beamer?

2020-12-13 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse

Steve,

you don't need to do anything, because beamer does not produce paper. I
collaborate a lot with a colleague in the US and do need to do anything
for the presentations. For the papers he changes the LyX to Letter if he
wants to print and I to A4 if I want to print.


If you like, you can experiment with stuff like

aspectratio=1610

in the

Documents -> Settings... -> Document Class -> Custom

which you need to read up on (aspect ration) in the (LaTeX)
Beamer Manual.

For your particular issue I would also search for "handout"
in the (LaTeX) Beamer Manual.


The MWE is a TeX document, by the way, not a LyX document.

I've tried various combinations and variants of the following :

\usepackage{geometry}

\hsize 29.7cm
\vsize 21.0cm
\usepackage[a4paper, total={29.5cm, 20.8cm}]{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper, landscape, total={11.5in, 8in}}

Some forced the latex program to abort with error, some caused only
a tiny rendering of the slide on a big A4 paper, some caused the
printing to be portrait, when I could print landscape it printed
upside down, what a mess.

Does anyone have a way to use Beamer (not LyX/Beamer) to create a
PDF that can print correctly on a European printer?

Could you please send a MWE, so that we can have a look at it?



That's a good idea, Baris, and I already sent the MWE files to you. In
case anyone else wants to take a crack at it, I'm attaching four MWE
files:

mwe.beamer is the MWE source

mwe.pdf is my attempt at A4. It's upside down, and the print is way
smaller than it's supposed to be.

kk is the shellscript that compiles mwe.beamer into mwe.pdf.

All 3 files go in a single directory, and assuming you have the same
texlive packages I have, it should compile to the same result mine did.

What I want is a PDF, printable on A4, that has the right sized print
and is right side up instead of upside down.

Thanks,

Re: Markdown to Lyx

2020-12-11 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Murat,

also look for pandoc’s template (-t latex) which you can modify. You really 
want Koma-Script instead of the standard (ie scrartcl vs article), and you also 
want LuaLaTeX (if you are not using it already.

Then google

https://www.google.com/search?q=pandoc+latex+template

I took the example from Wandmalfarbe and modified it heavily for my use two 
years ago and had to use a little Perl because tex2lyx produced some ERT, but 
tex2lyx has been revised a number of times by then, and, as I wrote before my 
situation was very specific.

My latest hobby, by the way, is to re-engineer hardcopy forms in LyX and then 
use Perl’s template toolkit to have my practice software fill in my patients’ 
details :-)-O.

Even figured out a way to generate a realistically looking date stamp  which 
varies by location and rotation randomly a little and put it into the preamble 
so no ERT when it appears in the PDF. But I had to have someone explain my own 
LaTeX code to me :-)-O

greetings, el

Re: Mac Os X 10.10

2020-12-10 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Corinna,

it looks as if you do not have TeX installed.

Look for MacTeX at

https://www.tug.org/mactex/

and if you ask me, download only the Smaller Download from

https://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html

If you have homebrew installed, do something like

brew lyx basictex

which will install both.


Once MacTeX is installed you need to run LyX through

Tools -> Reconfigure

again, so it sees what is available.

Browsing the LyX website and the Wiki will also be helpful.


If you have issues with English email me (and Stephan?)  in German
directly, off list.

Re: Markdown to Lyx

2020-12-10 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Murat,

I would not do that through an import from the LyX GUI.

Convert to LaTeX (with pandoc) and then modify the template pandoc uses
in steps until the TeX file it produces converts into proper LyX
(tex2lyx).

Write yourself a Makefile, especially if a little Perl or Python is
required to make changes to the LyX file.

I once had to take a MindMap and generate a Beamer presentation, so a
little AppleScript was even required in the Makefile to export to
Markdown, but eventually this worked out great.

Same for trying to dictate, which does not work with LyX at all.
Markdown works very well, and a little Makefile produces very nice LyX.

make is part of the XCode Command Line Tools which you get from the
command line with

sudo xcode-select --install

Re: LyX under WSL2 using VcXsrv (sharing clipboard problems)

2020-11-28 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Chris,

What about something like:


1) Install and use LyX for Windoze

2) setup the WSL (linux) directory structure to be accessible to the
Reconfigure step

3) prefix all calls to external commands with 'wsl' or whatever needs to
be done to run linux commands from a Windoze command line, with the
exception of the viewer

If that worked it would be even cooler wouldn't it?

Rich,

I could do that, but why for as they say here?  This has happened
for the second time in as many years so it's not really worth the
effort. This happens because LaTeX is being revised significantly and
thus needs to be lived with :-)-O

I have every box I work with connected to a hard drive and to a Time
Capsule running Time Machine of both.

Once I figured out how far to go back, it took 20 seconds to start Time
Machine, and a few minutes to restore.  On the other machines I have

I am an elderly Gynecologist myself (and (have to) use Windows10 for the

I like to bleed on the edge so I update LyX the day I become aware of 
it for myself but have it on a package manager (called homebrew) on the 
boxes I "support". 


The only small issue is one needs to reinstall MacTeX once a year.  

I have a script for this which I run on all my own and supported
machines.  The script doesn't even install the full version of MacTeX,
only the smaller BasicTeX after saving all packages installed and then
pulling the additional ones afterwards saving a few Gigs (even though 
disk space is cheap these days).

Once a month one runs the TeX Live Manager from the command line or
tlcockpit (a java app) and the updates are done.

Totally painless.

Re: KOMA-Script report: old font issue with bibtex

2019-08-24 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Rich,

http://ctan.unsw.edu.au/biblio/bibtex/contrib/authordate/authordate3.bst

shows

FUNCTION {emphasize}
{ duplicate$ empty$
{ pop$ "" }
{ "{\em " swap$ * "}" * }
  if$
}

so if you replace that with

FUNCTION {emphasize}
{ duplicate$ empty$
{ pop$ "" }
{ "\emph{" swap$ * "}" * }
  if$
}

and similar for \bf and so on you will probably find that your issues go
away :-)-O

Re: 14 point type (solved)

2019-07-06 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
John,

that is easily solved...

...not the age, of course :-)-O

Documents -> Settings -> Formats -> Output Format/Default Output Format:

Pull Down -> PDF (LuaTeX)

On the Bottom Right: OK

Then you look for the eyes in the toolbar on the top, and if you click
those, or run Control-R (I think, on the Mac it's Command-R) it'll
generate PDF.

If you work off of a template, do it there and whenever you copy it for
a new document it's already there.


I can confirm the italic issue on the beamer format (ie doing a
presentation) but I can't confirm it on Koma's letter and article
formats.

when I run

lyx --help

I see:

[...]
   -e [--export] fmt
 where fmt is the export format of choice.  Look in
 Tools->Preferences->File Handling->File Formats->Short Name
 to see which parameter (which differs from the format name
 in the File->Export menu) should be passed.
[...]

There I found stuff like pdf5 (which is the one from LuaLaTex) and some
others.

So, when I run

for i in 2 3 4 5 7 8
do
lyx -f -E pdf$i test.$i.pdf test.lyx
done
lyx -f -e pdf test.lyx

I get the enclosed (all possible?) PDFs.

I have also enclosed the source of the MWE for your convenience.

So perhaps you want to send me (off list) the two liner with a non
working emphasized word for testing.  If I get it before 19:00 European
time I can play with it on the plane back to Namibia.

greetings, el

Re: 14 point type (solved)

2019-07-05 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Why would one ever use pdf2pdf?

Lualatex (pdf5) generates proper PDF.

I haven't encountered the italic issue, but if I can verify it I will take it 
up with the package maintainer. You can take any font you like, and if New 
Century Schoolbook 14 works, use that. I just happen to like Noto :-)-O

I would even go so far as to use Noto Serif and if that looks too big
(compare with New Century Schoolbook 14) use 13pt.

John,

use one of the Koma Script formats, perhaps article, and then in the  Document 
Settings Document Class Custum put 14pt.

In Document Settings Fonts use Base Size Default and select the fonts.

That should do it.

Deleting old MacTex-version…

2018-11-11 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Jess,

also do something like

tlmgr list --only-installed|awk '{print $2}'|sed s/://g > tl.2018-11-10

if yuo were to inadvertently remove your "current" TL version, after
reinstallation of TL you can run

tlmgr install $(cat tl.2018-11-10)

which will not re-install existing packages, but any you have previously
installed additionally with tlmgr or the Tex Live Manager tool will be.

I use MacTeX Basic and ths method and thus save a few GB :-)-O

footer (or whatever it's called in the menu). Then you need a line a 'last
footer'.

MWEs are very helpful...

Re: Problem with bibliography compilation

2016-09-22 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse

That (leaving RTF) will happen if you mess with Microsoft products.

What you really need to do is to get a proper BIB management tool,
such as JabRef or BibDesk (on the Mac).

The latter is my favorite.

The you someplace like http://www.doi2bib.org nad have it generate the
BIB for each reference and copy and paste into BibDesk's buffer to
save into the final file.  Other literature databases can also output
in BIB.

BibDesk also works with LyX, actually, which is very cool.

You are welcome.

I like to leave the default page sizes as determined by LaTeX (in my case A4)

I have really special cases.

That way Portrait and Landscape work very well, by just clicking the switch.

Re: Request for Feature on Mac

2014-01-31 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
I use a straight US keyboard.

Esc does Cancel which is fine, but I would like to use Space to Discard and 
Enter to Save.

 Where would I request the following feature:
 
 Many Mac programs offer you the choice to Save, Don't Save/Discard,
 Cancel in the way that is shown in the enclosed alpha.jpg, ie if you
 use the Return/Enter key it'll save, if you use the Space key it'll
 Not Save (Quit) and you have to use the mouse to click Cancel.
 
 In Lyx I must use the mouse if I want to discard, because it doesn't
 recognize the Space and it defaults to Save.
 
 Since I work with the keyboard mostly it is a nuisance, hence this
 request.
 
 el
 
 Hmm, Escape gives me Cancel; so you lost one, but gained one ;-)
 More seriously: could this be keyboard/language dependent (Swedish
 keyboard here).

Re: Installing Lyx/Mac w/out MacTeX. Is it possible?

2014-01-31 Thread Dr Eberhard W Lisse
Stefano,

so she can actually edit the files?  Cool.  I was wondering if the
config run (using luatex) would work.

Now what you also can do to cooperate, is to use SVN (see Additional
Features Section 7.2), which is really, really cool.

I have myself some experience with remoteness, being an Obstetrician
and Gynaecologist in Africa, though in Windhoek connectivity is
starting to become useful.

What I do between my house and the practice (and of course the
laptop) is something like this :-)-O

sudo tlmgr install `ssh USER@HOST.DOMAIN tlmgr list|grep ^i|awk
'{print $2}'|sed s/://g`

That you can easily install into crontab and or whatever scheduler
you like and run this on a number of hosts, so you need to only
update one.  If you can not predict where changes are happening one
will have to figure out a more complicated round robin scheme :-)-O


But you can configure the working BasicMacTeX and then tar the
update /usr/local/texlive.  Put all on a stick, DHL it over there
and she must install and then untar over /usr/local/texlive to bring
it up to what is required.

Mabye someone writes a shell script for her to take care of the
command line stuff, but that's not a big deal.  And, if the
university has serious Mac programming resources, someone can make
an installer for her that does all of this with a click.

greetings, el

 Thanks to everyone for the many suggestions.
 
 To clarify the issue and sum up the outcome:
 
 My question was really about the Mac installer, not about the
 functionality of LyX without a suitable TeX installation.  In
 other words, I was asking:
 
 Can a minimally computer savvy Mac user install LyX only with no
 help and obtain a working LyX-editing only environment?
 
 And the answer, I am happy to report, is yes.  Aside from the
 puzzlement raised by the Untrusted source dialog, installation
 (of 2.0.6) went smoothly and we are happily cooperating.
 
 On the other hand, on the alternative question of How to provide
 a minimal yet still fully functioning LyX+TeX installation I
 particularly liked Eberhard's solution.  It was not viable in my
 case, since the user is an ocean away and working on a crappy (and
 expensive) internet connection, but I think it should be kept as a
 LyX recipe for space constrained Mac users, a category that is
 growing fast now that traditional hard drives have gone the way of
 the dodo on the MacBook Air.
 
 Perhaps it should be put on the wiki?  And since it is really not
 Mac-only (Mac-Basic is just the Mac-version of TexLive's basic
 scheme, I guess), perhaps it could be generalized to other
 platforms as well.
