### problem when superscripted integrals are copied

Hi, while trying to solve the different behavior of sums and integrals in multiline equations I discovered another problem. When you copy an integral with super/subscripted limits (mark the integral, C-C, move to insert position, C-V) the copied integral turns out to have postscripted limits. Obviously LyX "forgets" the \limits while copying the integral. The same happens when copying a sum with postscripted limits in a single-line equation. Only that LyX here "forgets" the \nolimits.

### No error message if disks are full?

Hi, one of my friends encountered the following problem: After working with LyX on some document he saved it and quit LyX. Then he noticed that the filesize of the lyx-file was 0 Bytes (excellent compression :-)). Unfortunately LyX didn't warn him, that his document couldn't be saved because there was no space left on /home. So he lost the work of a whole morning. I haven't checked if there really isn't a warning (I guess the other users of /home would get a little upset if I used all space which is left on /home only to confirm this behavior), but I think the developers should know it.

According to Jean-Marc (cf. http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-users@lists.lyx.org/msg00240.html) this is currently not possible. Bye, Ingo

### Re: Enumerate

I'm wondering how to get rid of the blank lines in a enumerate list. Using the enumerate environment a get something like: 1) First 2) Second 3) Third Thus, I would like to get: 1) First 2) Second 3) Third Any ideas? Append in TeX-Mode a \vspace{-1em} to each item except the last one, i.e. 1) First \vspace{-1em} 2) Second \vspace{-1em} 3) Third In LyX there will still be a blank line after each item. But the DVI-Preview shows the desired result. Ingo

### Names of math-macros

Hi there! I just had some problems latexing one of my lyx-files. I found out that the name of a macro must not contain any numbers, i.e. a macro named gl2x is not possible. Unfortunately LyX doesn't complain if you use a number in the name of a macro. I think this should be changed. LyX should at least print a warning. Another problem I encountered is that if latex finds more than 100 errors while texing a file, LyX tries to display the dvi-file (which was not build because of all the errors) anyways. It seems that LyX doesn't notice that latex aborted texing the file. Have a nice day. Ingo

### Re: [lyx-users] Where to find the 'broadway' stuff.

I assume it needs LaTeX support that it isn't finding on my system. However, neither a CTAN search nor a Web search turns up anything relevant. Any hints as to what I'm missing and where to find it? Like you are told in Help/Latex Configuration the class file "must be installed from the tex/ subdirectory of LyX source distribution". The exact location should be lyx-1.0.2/lib/tex/broadway.cls.

Have you tried to mark the text in the margin-box and change the justification via Layout/Paragraphformat (the second option in the Layout-Menu) to left-justified? Unfortunately you have to do it for all your margin-boxes. But it works. Ingo

### Re: Running headers

Is there a way in lyx to have a shorter version of a chapter header apart from \chapter[short]{long header} in tex mode? Which documentclass do you use? In article there is no chapter. But you could use report (?) or book. In these documentclasses there exists the chapter header. Regards, Ingo

I have tryed to use Layout - Document - use AMS, but I don't know how to get the symbols . Change into LaTeX-Mode and type "\mathbb{R}" for |R. This works also for N, Q, Z, C etc. If you use these symbols often in your text you should define a macro. For "\mathbb{R}" I use for example the shortcut "\RR". Unfortunately LyX is not able to view |R. But it is printed correctly. Salut, Ingo
