Remove parts from a class (e.g; Elsevier)

2012-04-30 Thread El Merehbi, Ibrahim

I'd like to ask if it is possible to remove any embedded parts of a
particular class. For example, in the Document class: article(Elsevier),
the output displays Preprint submitted to Elsevier at the lower left
of the first page.

I wrote two documents using that class, but now I have set my default to
AMS's (still experimenting).

Thanks

 Try empheq.sty, part of the mh package.

Re: LyX on Ubuntu Precise (12.04): big download size!

Thank you for your reply.

 I would suggest that if you are doing either mathematics or physics,
 you really, really need the TeX packages, no matter what.  The idea of
 not using TeX to write mathematics is impossible for me to deal with
 -- especially if your alternative is Word.


Actually, I don't use word anymore; even OpenOffice or LibreOffice I 
don;t use either except for rare occasions; that's why wehn I found out 
about LyX (while searching for Scientific Workplace -commercial) I 
chose LyX  have been using it ever since. Am happ with it :D

 In my opinion, TeX is a huge improvement in writing technical material
 over anything else out there, and LyX is a huge improvement to using
 TeX.  Yes, these things require a large download any more (I remember
 when LyX fit on a floppy disk -- without TeX, but even so, one floppy
 disk).

 If you have no internet connection, then I imagine you have a usb
 port, or other pluggable access.  Get a  usb keychain drive, or
 equivalent other media, get access somehow to download the archive to
 the drive, and you should have no problem.  You clearly have some
 internet access since you did send this message.


I do have a cxn, but I am writing a document with someone  I'd like to 
install it for him so we can work on the editing together, but he 
doesn't have a cxn (weird as it may be) + to save time in installing. 
And yes, that's what I was thinking; I just wanted to know how to find 
what packages (dependencies incl. of course) I needed  where to find 
them (for Ubuntu!)

 Others can answer about how big the distribution ought to be, but
 again, believe me, you need this to write mathematics.


Sure I do need to write mathematics, with TeX! :D

thanks again

 Just a simple question: Is there a way to keep figures, sections

 By default, LyX uses different prefixes for these: fig, sec, sub.

 I am asking this since it is quite annoying to search for a label in the
 cross reference window!!!

 Try sorting them.

Re: numbering multi-line formulas

2012-04-15 Thread El Merehbi, Ibrahim
Hello again,

I believe I didn't clear it out well. I meant a shortcut for the 
eqnarray not the equation numbering.

The default of your stated functions are:

math-number-line-toggle: Alt+M Shift+N
math-number-toggle: Alt+M N

both of which do the same thing; I already use the second one for 
numbering.

Note: LyX 2.0.3 on Ubuntu 10.04

Thanks again

 You can define keyboard shortcuts to substitute for many, if not all,
 menu choices.  I only use a few such shortcuts, and not for line
 numbering since I don't do that so often.  Look under Tools 
 Preferences  Shortcuts  Mathematical symbols, for
 math-number-line-toggle and math-number-toggle and assign them as you
 prefer.

 Another question is regarding fullscreen mode; the math toolbar pops out
 when I use Ctrl(+Shift)+M  that's useful, but what about the main
 toolbar? is there a way to bring it out temporarily in fullscreen
 mode?

 I don't know.
