I do not normally use tabs, but sometimes I get them accidentally, and have 
seen this behavior.

I am using LyX 2.3.6 on MacOS 11.1. I just reset my preferences to tabs and 
made two very small files Test1 and Test 2. When I open one everything is fine. 
When I open the other I see a white blank where its name should be, but the 
other file still still has its name displayed properly. When I toggle the open 
file this switches.

I know how to use inline enumerate (enumitem[enumerate*]) in LaTeX. Is there a 
good way to use it in LyX without ERT? Among other problems, it seems that in 
order to use the  enumitem[enumerate*] package option I need to turn off the 
enumitem module.

But this is neither the behavior the LaTex example gives nor the behavior I

Thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately they do not address my issue. I 
want the secondary enumeration to start on the first line of the primary 
enumeration. It works in LaTex.

I tried the tab button first. The problem is that LyX does not like empty 
lines. I can use a hard space for the first item, but then I get an empty line 
of output that I do not want. If I erase the hard space in LyX and then 
preview, I get what I want, but as soon as I move the cursor to I new 
paragraph, LyX replaces the empty line with \item a .

Thanks, Paul. I had thought of this, and I should be able to adjust the left

to do it with enumitem.

I think my desired construct is one that others might find useful. For instance 
I see it in textbooks.

Thanks for the help, but I still cannot make this work. 

I have tried:

\AtBeginDocument{
\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\mbox{\autoref{#1}}}
\addto\extrasenglish{\renewcommand{\lemautorefname}{Lemma}}
}

I get: LaTeX Error: \lemautorefname undefined.

I have tried: 

\AtBeginDocument{
\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\mbox{\autoref{#1}}}
\addto\extrasenglish{\newcommand{\lemautorefname}{Lemma}}
}

It runs, but prints lemma, not Lemma. This is the same result that I get if add 
nothing to the preamble.

I am attaching a minimal file.

is very useful! In a collaborative world, it is impossible to only use LyX, but 
you can get started only using LyX. For instance students should be encouraged 
to use LyX for homework problems, and then their theses, and then editing other 
peoples LaTeX, etc.

Jürgen and Riki -

Thanks. I will try to file the bug report.

Is there a place were one can read the requirements for a LaTex file to import 
correctly? For instance most files I receive from collaborators do not have the 
theorem definitions in the right form.

I think LyX is a great tool, both for learning LaTex and doing serious writing. 
However none of my 70 coauthors have used it, and except for my current 
students, I know of nobody in my department who uses it. I think the greatest 
obstacle to wider use is that Tex2LyX does not work reliably. By the nature of 
the task, Tex2LyX is trying to convert files that were not written for LyX, so 
requiring special forms of LaTex devalues the program.  When I collaborate I 
end up using LaTex instead of LyX most of the time or using LyX to create LaTex 
segments to cut and paste. One of the first big advantages of LyX is that you 
get structure for your document with numbered theorems, etc. It would be nice 
for demonstration/advertising purposes if this always worked.

I am using LyX 2.3.0 on macOS 10.13.4. When I try to import a tex file I get 
ert for every theorem type statement. Is there away to avoid this? I know I can 
go through by hand and correct each occurrence, but it would be much better if 
the converter handled it. At least it compiles.

Here is a small example of a tex file and the imported LyX file.

Can't open a new file

I have been very happily using LyX 2.3 on two Macs running OSX 10.13.3. But 
this morning I got this message on one of them (the other is fine) when I tried 
to open a new file:

/Users/Hal/Library/Application Support/LyX-2.3/templates/defaults.lyx is from 
an older version of LyX and the lyx2lyx script failed to convert it.

and then 

The specified document template
.../Application Support/LyX-2.3/templates/defaults.lyx
could not be read.

Also, I tried to open an older LyX file and got:

The specified document template
.../Application Support/LyX-2.3/templates/defaults.lyx
could not be read.

I tried to reconfigure and got:

The system reconfiguration has failed.
Default textclass is used but LyX may
not be able to work properly.
Please reconfigure again if needed.

What should I do?

Thanks,

I do not think you understood me.  Suppose a create a LyX file and use it to 
generate a tex file.  I send it to my coauthor who does not use LyX.  He makes 
modifications to the LaTex file without changing the front material, and sends 
me his Tex file.  I should be able to use tex2lyx to make a revised version  of 
my LyX file.  But this requires many corrections by hand.

Steve -

First of all, tex2lyx already comes close to making a good LyX file.  The main 
problem is that there always seem to be a handful or errors that must be fixed 
before the file will run.  For some reason the program cannot handle options 
like \begin{thm}[Main Lemma], but also other options.  It also seems that 
comments in the Latex file can sometimes produce errors.  A huge annoyance is 
that theorems, etc. are displayed in ERT.

I understand that for arbitrary LaTex files some of these issues maybe very 
complicated or impossible, but what I am asking for does not involve arbitrary 
files.  Let’s take an easy case.  Suppose my coauthor only makes changes 
between \begin{document} and \end{document} of the LaTex file, and does not use 
any new constructs.  Shouldn’t it be possible, perhaps with a helper file that 
records settings and any other special issues, to make a good LyX version?  Or 
even easier, shouldn’t I be able to export a Latex file and then without 
changing it, import it and get the same LyX file back.  Yes, I know there is no 
reason to do this, but it is a benchmark.

Re: Lyx numbering equations

2015-03-15 Thread Hal Kierstead
This would be nice, and I think that I would use it, but I can think of many 
other improvements that might be easier to implement. For example:
1. LyX could remember the kind of reference associated with a label. So instead 
of typing Lemma 14, I would only need to type the reference to its label.  LyX 
already knows this because its suggestions for labels look like lem: … .  I 
often forget whether a reference is to a lemma or proposition, etc.
2. When I know the label for a reference it would be nice to be able to enter 
it directly from the keyboard (of course it would also be nice to be able to 
enter its current number).
3. When I highlight a reference in the pop-up window and then use the goto and 
return buttons, it would be nice to still have the reference highlighted.
4. The best thing, which is apparently very hard, would be to have tex2lyx work 
perfectly on tex files that were originally created by LyX, but have been 
modified by a coauthor without changing the front matter.

But it is a great app; I only wish my coauthors and students would use it.

 Public release of LyX version 2.1.2.1

 We are proud to announce the release of LyX 2.1.2.1.
 
 This is an emergency release for OSX only. It resolves problems that affect
 LyX on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) and, indeed, any program that depends upon the
 passing of environment variables to sub-processes. Only users of OSX 10.10
 should upgrade to this version.
 
 LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based
 on the structure of your documents and not simply their appearance. It is
 released under a Free and Open Source Software license.
 
 You can download LyX 2.1.2.1 from http://www.lyx.org/Download/.
 
 The remainder of this file describes the 2.1.2 release, which was the
 second maintenance release in the 2.1.x series.
 
 LyX 2.1.2 is the result of on-going efforts to make our stable version
 even more reliable and stable. We have fixed a number of bugs and made
 a number of improvements. These are detailed below. We strongly encourage
 all LyX users to upgrade to this version.
 
 The most important fix here is that we believe we have resolved the problem
 that led several users to experience seemingly random crashes with 2.1.0,
 sometimes resulting in dataloss. (This was bug 9049.) These crashes generally
 happened when the user attempted to save a file containing a table, usually a
 fairly complex table. A seemingly unrelated bug report concerning a crash when
 trying to save a default template (bug 9236) led to the solution. That bug has
 also been fixed.
 
 Do report your bugs, then! It really does help make LyX better, often in ways
 you might not expect.
 
 So, if you think you have found a bug in LyX 2.1.2, open a bug report at
 http://www.lyx.org/trac/wiki/BugTrackerHome. If you're not sure whether it
 really is a bug, you can e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel
 at lists.lyx.org) and ask.
 
 If you have trouble using LyX or have a question, consult the
 documentation that comes with LyX and the LyX wiki, which lives at
 http://wiki.lyx.org/. If you can't find the answer there, e-mail the LyX
 users' list (lyx-users at lists.lyx.org).
 
 We hope you enjoy using LyX 2.1.2.
 
 The LyX team.

  relevant (bug 5203).
 
 - Fix import of latex documents with scaled fonts.
 
 
 * LYX2LYX
 
 - Fix warning Missing \use_indices when converting from 1.6.x format
  or older.
 
 - Fix several conversion problems of beamer box arguments when the
  arguments use multiple ERTs (part of bug 9208, bug 9225, bug 9144).
 
 - Fix conversion of beamer overlay arguments when the module
  beamer-resenumerate is used (part of bug 9208).
 
 
 * USER INTERFACE
 
 - Do not forget last words of paragraphs in completion possibilities.
 
 - Select word on double click even when at boundary (bug 9159).
 
 - Fix listings inset parameter validation when font size is selected
  (bug 8144).
 
 - Fix listings validator with regard to aboveskip and belowskip (bug 7373).
 
 - Fix reverse search in insets (figures, tables, branches, etc.) (bug 9151).
 
 - Fix on-screen display of images whose type is not known to LyX (bug 9146).
 
 - Fix the -geometry command line argument for Windows.
 
 
 * INTERNALS

Yosemite + LyX

2014-10-18 Thread Hal Kierstead
I am trying to use LyX 2.1.2 with Yosemite, but review does not work for me.  I 
cannot even preview the help manuals.  I can export them to LaTex and then 
compile them with LaTex.  This must be some path problem, but I do not know how 
to deal with it.  Any help would be appreciated.

 That's true. It's cryptic.
 
 1) LyX is missing the convert utility. 
 I think,it's normally part of MacTeX and can be found in directory 
 /usr/local/bin.
 Either LyX cannot access it or the directory is not part of the PATH setting.
 You can find it in the Preferences pane (use Command-, to open it).
 Check the PATH-Prefix contents - /usr/local/bin should be there.
 
 2) TeX cannot find article.cls and other class files.
 These are part of MacTeX and can be found in directory /usr/local/texlive.
 For me it's .../2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/article.cls
 
 Try to reconfigure LyX. But if you never used LyX before it might be 
 pointless.

 If there is none then enable the log output for graphics conversion.

 Thanks for the attention.  This is what I got.  Maybe it should be obvious 
 what to do, but its mostly gibberish to me.
 
 That's true. It's cryptic.
 
 1) LyX is missing the convert utility. 
 I think,it's normally part of MacTeX and can be found in directory 
 /usr/local/bin.
 Either LyX cannot access it or the directory is not part of the PATH setting.
 You can find it in the Preferences pane (use Command-, to open it).
 Check the PATH-Prefix contents - /usr/local/bin should be there.
 
 2) TeX cannot find article.cls and other class files.
 These are part of MacTeX and can be found in directory /usr/local/texlive.
 For me it's .../2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/article.cls
 
 Try to reconfigure LyX. But if you never used LyX before it might be 
 pointless.

OK, I will take up the challenge.  I love LyX, and use it for everything, even 
my private notes, EXCEPT when collaborating.  Nobody else I work with uses it.  
Even if I write the first draft in LyX, and my coauthors do not change the 
front matter, I cannot convert their file to good LyX.  If this were possible I 
think my coauthors would be trying out LyX and quickly converting.  I cannot 
even get undergraduates or graduate students to give it a try.

I should at least be able to convert tex files produced by LyX back into the 
original version of LyX, even if it takes some ugly hacks like adding extra 
data to insure the conversion.

I should at least be able to convert tex files produced by LyX back into the 
original version of LyX, even if it takes some ugly hacks like adding extra 
data to insure the conversion.

Thanks for your interest.  Here is a simple lyx document, the exported tex 
document and the pdf it generates.  I created the LyX document just as you 
said, and it looks fine in LyX, but not in the pdf version.  I see you inserted 
your table in a float, but this did not help when I tried it.

Thanks again,

 Just for clarity: you have to set the width of the columns individually.
 Click in the left column - right click - more - settings - Table settings tab 
 - Columns settings: set width 1 inch. Repeat this with the right column, but 
 set it to 5 inch.

Many thanks Richard.  You were exactly right. It was because of using a unicode

Is it a bug?  I only started using unicode symbols after somebody on here

 The usual reason is a Unicode character in your BibTeX file on which the
 LyX parser is choking. It'll typically be in the entry following the
 last one you see. Could be a dash, quote, etc, often pasted from the
 Internet.

While working on a LyX document it would be nice to be able to quickly see the 
the pdf view, just as one can when working on a tex document.  The problem I 
have is that to view changes I must close the current view reopen it and then 
navigate to the the current position, and maybe even reposition the window.  Is 
there a more automated way to do this?

 Are you using acroread? It features a known issue: it doesn't reload
 the PDF on file system change. You could either reload it in acroread,
 or use something else such as Evince.
 
 
 reopen it and then navigate to the the current position,
 
 There is a new feature 'forward search' (or similar) that should help
