passing options to bibtopic

2011-06-22 Thread James C. Sutherland
When using the sectioned bibliography option, LyX automatically adds:
  \usepackage[dot]{bibtopic}
 to the preamble.

Is there a way to add additional options to the bibtopic package, e.g.
  \usepackage[dot,sectcntreset]{bibtopic}

  You can add sectcntreset to the class options, under DocumentSettings.
 It will be passed on.

  Great!  I thought those were only passed as options to the document

A few suggestions for fixes in LyX 2.0

2011-04-13 Thread James C. Sutherland
I have very much enjoyed using LyX 2.0!  Thanks to the development team for
your efforts!

A few minor things that I have found recently regarding forward/reverse PDF
search on Mac with Skim:

In section 5.6 of Additional.lyx on the Skim directions for reverse
search, there is a problem with the status quo.  It should read:

Skim-Preferences-Sync choose 'custom' preset and enter
command /Applications/LyX.app/Contents/MacOS/lyxeditor


I have not had success in getting forward search to work with Skim on Mac
(using the default commands supplied with LyX for forward search with Skim).
 It opens a file, but does not position itself anywhere near the requested
line.  Can anyone duplicate this?

Best wishes,

James

The problem with this is that relative directories are very useful when
sharing documents among various people, since the absolute path will be
broken the moment you move the directory structure to another machine.

Can't LyX sort through this issue in the same manner as it does with
graphics paths, i.e. by transforming relative paths to absolute paths when
the LaTeX is exported to the temporary directory?  So behind the scenes, LyX
could change:
  \subimport{ relative path }

  \import{ absolute path }

using import package within LyX?

2011-02-28 Thread James C. Sutherland
I need to use the LaTeX import package to manage hierarchical directory
structures with graphics files distributed throughout the structure.
Furthermore, this is in a mixed LyX/LaTeX environment, where LyX gathers the
LaTeX files to create various master documents.

While the import package seems to work fine in straight LaTeX, it fails in
even the simplest LyX example, even when the LaTeX-exported file works fine.

Steps:

1. create a file master.lyx and edit the LaTeX preamble to include
\usepackage{import}
2. Insert ERT \subimport{subdir}{trythis.tex}
3. create trythis.tex in subdir
4. Compile.

This will fail.

bug with brackets in subfloat?

2011-02-01 Thread James C. Sutherland
I may have discovered a bug, but it may be in LaTeX itself.

Steps to reproduce:

   1. Create a figure float
   2. create a sub-float within it.
   3. In the subfloat caption, enter (in math mode):  $[A]$, where $
   indicates math mode.
   4. Compile the file.

This results in a LaTeX error that has to due with the right-bracket.  If
you remove it, things compile just fine.  I have attached a very brief LyX
file (2.0beta3 format) that illustrates this problem.

Is there a known work-around for this problem?

Thanks,

James

3. *Turn right on 100 South* (North Campus Drive):  You will now be
facing East.  Continue driving East on 100 South.  As you go up the hill,
100 South will abruptly turn to the left (North), at which point it's name
changes to North Campus Drive.  Later, it will make a large sweeping turn 
 to
the right (East).  Continue following North Camus Drive until you come to
Central Campus Drive.

4. *Turn right on Central Campus Drive:*  You will now be facing
South.  Continue driving South on Central Campus Drive until you come to 
 the
intersection with the street named Federal Way.

Sorry all - false alarm.  For whatever reason, when I installed 1.6.7, the
default LyX switched to 2.0alpha4 on my system, and I did not notice this.

So it turns out that scrolling and dialogue boxes work fine in 1.6.7.
Again, sorry for the false alarm.

 Public release of LyX version 1.6.7
 ===

 We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 1.6.7. This is the eighth
 maintenance release in the 1.6.x series.

 From the list of fixes and improvements, we'd like to highlight
 particularly that this release irons out all known stability problems
 with
 Qt 4.6. LyX 1.6.7 is our first release that is supposed to run smoothly
 with Qt 4.6, so we urge all distributors who use that version to upgrade
 LyX as well.

 A detailed list of changes is appended below, remaining known problems
 are listed in the file RELEASE-NOTES.

 All users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

 In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
 http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software/Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with
   page boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's
   legendary TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output --
   or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks
   like nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs,
   all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes
   'eating' your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux, the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

 You can download LyX 1.6.7 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
 which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/lyx-1.6.7.tar.bz2

 and it should propagate shortly to the following mirrors (which will
 also host the .bz2 versions):

ftp://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz
http://lyx.cybermirror.org/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

http://lyx.mirror.fr/stable/1.6.x/lyx-1.6.7.tar.gz

 Prebuilt binaries (rpms for Linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows
 installers) should soon be available at:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/1.6.7/

 If you already have the sources of the previous release (1.6.6.1), you
 may
 want to apply one of the following patches instead:

ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.gz
ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/1.6.x/patch-1.6.7.bz2

 If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.6.7, you may either
 e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel at lists.lyx.org),
 or open a bug report at http://www.lyx.org/trac/

 If you're having trouble using the new version of LyX, or have a
 question, first check out http://www.lyx.org/help/. If you can't find
 the answer there, e-mail the LyX users' list (lyx-users at
 lists.lyx.org).

 Enjoy!

 The LyX team.

Bennett,

The problem shows up for me when I undock the dialogue window.  When docked,
there is no problem.  And yes, this problem is in 1.6.7.

Re: [ANNOUNCE] LyX 1.6.7 is released!

2010-07-15 Thread James C. Sutherland
Sorry all - false alarm.  For whatever reason, when I installed 1.6.7, the
default LyX switched to 2.0alpha4 on my system, and I did not notice this.

So it turns out that scrolling and dialogue boxes work fine in 1.6.7.
Again, sorry for the false alarm.

LyX 2.0 alpha 4 - Right-Click on Mac broken

2010-07-01 Thread James C. Sutherland
I have found another bug in 2.0 alpha for Mac.  Right-clicking a text
selection does not work properly.  No context menu comes up when
right-clicking.  Can anyone else confirm?  If so I can file a bug report.

By the way, I really like the new spell checking capabilities in LyX 2.0.  I
never succeeded in getting a fully functional spell checker with previous
LyX versions, and this works out of the box!

Thanks to all of the developers for their hard work - 2.0 will surely be a
major step forward once the kinks are worked out!

I am trying to do.  I cannot get the text to wrap properly.  Any tips?  
Essentially I need to set the height of the multicolumn cell and force text 
wrapping...

Typically LaTeX will get confused, print out something that gives you  
a hint of where it went off a cliff, and then print a lot of messages  
like what you are seeing here.  So I would suggest looking for the  
first occurance of an error out of LaTeX and see if you can determine  
what part of the document it was processing when that error occurred.


Given that the error involves $, I would bet that you either have an  
unterminated math command or you have tried to use a math command  
without enclosing it in the proper $.  You might also look for mis-

Hi

Houston we have a problem. I writed a formula in the middle of the  
line with lyx  and i tried to put the number of the formula in the  
end of the line but i could not do that. How is that possible???

You will probably find it worth your time to read the LyX Math user  
manual (Help -> Math).  Specifically, look at section 19 for a  
discussion of numbering.

I still get the error message some times, but very rarely. Anyay, I

The bug is still there.  As far as I know there is not yet a solid fix  
for this.  Bennet had been working on something, but I don't know if  
he has finalized a fix yet...

Re: Float/figures width

2009-10-26 Thread James C. Sutherland

I suggest that you look at the user manual that comes with LyX:
Help - User's Guide
Help - Embedded Objects
All of your questions should be answered there.

Hi there,

Just started dabbling with LaTex and Lyx. I understand how to format a
figure in LaTex, for example, to have my diagram the same width as the
column of text, I type something like:

\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{figure.jpg}

or to get it x% of the column width

\includegraphics[width=x\columnwidth]{figure.jpg}

But how do I do this in Lyx?

Also, I'd like to know how to get, for example, two separate figures  
side by

side, each 50% (or less) the width of the column of text. Would it be
possible for Lyx to label them Figure 1(a) and (b) automagically?

I tried searching for an answer, but didn't find anything I could
understand. I hope you can help!

Thanks in advance!
