One too many }s ?

Hi all,

The tutorial for http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Tables#toc17 works in new
documents, and using the same solution in my long document gives.

Misplaced \noalign
Missing } inserted
Missing } inserted
Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup
Misplaced alignment tab character .

Also, I tried using the following ERTs in LyX to shrink my list of
figures and this made my whole document tiny. Even adding an extra }
had no visible effect. As both problems appear to be related to the
use of closing-tags, could latex be adding and removing characters to
the extent that latex confuses itself?

how can i put a citation in an ert endnote?

2008-07-21 Thread Glen Whitehead
Dear all,

I'm using LyX 1.5.4 and ERT to insert endnotes. However, I do not seem
able to add citations to an ERT. Please send your suggestions :)

Thank you :)

Thank you everyone for your replies :-)

I am so relieved (after throwing up).

The error was being returned by bibtex and was nothing serious 0_o

 TeX errors are sometime quite cryptic and the additional layer of LyX-Tex
 sometimes makes it even harder.

 It looks like the error is hidden in the preamble or a package or a floating
 object...

 In such cases I usually:

 1. look into DocumentLaTeX Protocoll, as this is somewhat more verbose than
   the error boxes.

 2. Export the docuement to LaTeX and run latex manually. Chances are good
   that this will locate the spot of the error.

 As mentioned by others, ViewSource is a good help too. The preamble
 (both, LyX produced and custom) can be seen with the whole document
 option of the source view.

Hi,

By default, latex positions images automatically depending on space
and this behaviour can be corrected ... how would you do it in lyx?

Sorry :$

Hi folks,

So I had a document, and I added an abstract... and now its poop :-S

The latex error in response to viewing pfd (pdflatex) is misplaces
alignment tab character . This has happened before and to solve it
then... I started with a blank page :-(

My document is now roughly 100 pages and is due in a few hours. We
cannot restart.

If I delete the offending body of text, the same error is moved to
another body of text. None of them have a visible  in them. If I
delete many pages, it will give a different error (pick one at
random).

Please have a solution!!

Best,

Glen
