 You should also look under ToolsPreferencesOutputLaTeX and see what
 index processors are available and which one LyX is trying to use.

I did try a simple document and there was no index. However, your suggestion 
helped me find the 
problem. In case others run into it, I'll list what I did here.

Under the ToolsPreferencesOutputLaTeX I changed the setting from texindy to 
makeindex. Then I 
made the same change in the document settings menu. After I reconfigured and 
restarted Lyx, I had an 
index. I don't know enough about LaTeX to know why it worked, but I'm content 
that it did.

Thank-you so much! Now the document is complete!

 You need to be more specific to get help.

I apologize for not providing details. My real concern was the index (and 
someone in my real life had already suggested trying the LyX manuals). The 
figures that don't allow it to compile are the platypus, the mobius, and the 
Escher in the User Guide. It's not a big deal to me, just to say why I hadn't 
tried the index in these documents.

If I need these documents, I usually look in the LyX format anyway.

Re: examdesign layout, or multiple-choice questions in LyX

2010-11-15 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
As requested, I've attached a sample LyX file that uses the exam layout. 
In this file you can see some of the tricks I used to get around a few 
of the shortcomings of exam.cls.


I now use the examdesign.cls with ordinary LaTeX because it seems better 
for my own needs.

 Dear all
 I'm coming back with a question that was raised several times on the
 list, but that didn't yet get a definitive answer: creating
 multiple-choice exams using LyX.
 
 The exam.layout posted on the list [1] can be useful is some cases,
 but cannot be used for multiple choice. The examdesign.layout posted
 by Paul [2] may work after a minor modification (see attached), 

With LyX, I use Hirschorn's exam class:  http://www-math.mit.edu/~psh/#ExamCls

I found a layout file that requires a lot of ERT, but does successfully utilize
all of the features of this class. I will attach it at the end, but should note
that the credit does NOT belong to me.

I prefer the Examdesign class and use it as regular TeX. I have not figured out
how to set up a layout file in LyX which uses the nesting.

I hope you find something here that you can use. The limitation I see with LyX
is the ability to nest in a layout file.

LyX Menus Missing!

2010-10-12 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
I recently installed the Ubuntu 10.10 version for Netbooks. To my consternation,
the menu is missing in LyX. (It is present in every other program I use with the
exception of TeXmaker.)

I was wondering if there is a way to get it back. In TeXmaker, it's not a big
deal, but in LyX I seem to need it to access many of the features I use.

Or...do I need to go back to the Desktop version of Ubuntu 10.10?

Tikz Sparklines

2010-02-06 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
I've been using Tikz graphics in my LyX files for some time now, with 
success, I might add.


Recently, I tried to include sparklines in two different LyX files. An 
example of what I mean can be found at:

http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/temperature-and-rain-sparklines/
They do not appear. With the first one, I simply exported the file as 
LaTeX and was able to use it that way. My most recent project is part of 
a much larger project with many files and the idea of switching entirely 
to LaTeX sounds like too much work. I like the visual advantages of LyX, 
but these sparklines only seem to work in pure LaTeX.


Does anyone have any suggestions to make it work? If it helps, I've 
tried this in the Tufte book and handout classes as well as the Memoir 
class. I've even tried a standalone article class with only the graphic 
in it.


Can I make it work or must I turn to LaTeX?

Creating Modules

2009-12-28 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
I am interested in creating 1, possibly 2 modules to use with the Memoir 
class to do some things that I've been doing with ERT. Unfortunately, I 
can't seem to find much on the LyX wiki about modules. Can anyone direct 
me to better information?


Specifically, what I want to accomplish are two things inspired by the 
Tufte Book layout: margin figures and captions for figures in the 
margin. I have this working through ERT and the use of the appropriate 
packages. I just need some direction for creating a module. Then I'll be 
happy to share the results.

Re: Layouts for education?

2009-11-16 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
Education layouts are one of the places where (so far) I find LaTeX superior to
LyX. You might consider an ordinary article class. Standard itemizing features
and branches will allow you to create a decent-looking quiz or test as well as
an answer key. That said, I have a LyX option and a LaTeX option for you:

On LyX, I use Phil Hirschhorn's Exam class:

http://www-math.mit.edu/~psh/#ExamCls

Somewhere I found a layout file, but it requires an enormous amount of ERT. I've
been trying to make a better layout file for the past few weeks, but I'm having
a lot of trouble with anything beyond the most basic features. The problems are
the nesting of lists, codes for point values, and now he has included a feature
for correct answers in multiple choice. (I had always used branches to
accomplish that. 

For most of my tests (except Calculus) I've turned to the Examdesign class which
I use only as pure LaTeX. It makes great answer keys, alternate test versions,
and it looks good. My ideal would be this one (combined with some nice features
from Hirschhorn's class).

Re: Drawing tool for LyX

2009-11-08 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
I've found several tools that work for my drawings, depending on the 
application.


Inkscape is my favorite for diagrams or sketches of graphs. I can point 
you to one diagram I just made with it for my Chemistry class:


http://www.flickr.com/photos/waski_the_squirrel/4079787050/

You can also find my original diagram from before LaTeX and Inkscape in 
the same location.


For plots of data, I like Rlplot (which comes with my Ubuntu 
distribution). It exports data and mathematical functions as .svg files 
and they appear to be quite precise.


I've occasionally used the graphics of LaTeX for diagrams: TikZ and 
pstricks. I have only limited skill with these and, while I'm impressed 
with the results, I don't see the investment of time to be worth the 
return I get. Maybe in the future...


Anyway, match the tool with the need, and spend some time considering 
what exactly you want to do.

Re: Some Beamer Questions

2009-03-16 Thread Jason Waskiewicz


1. When i create a block, how do i get the block contents to actually appear 
inside the block. So what i currently have is:

Block (ERT[{title}] body): [[ {some heading} ]]
block contents
  

The way I do it is:
Block (ERT[(title} body): {Heading inside curly braces}
Point 1
Point 2

I don't remember the name for it, but I place the points under the Block 
with the arrow on the menubar: the same arrow used in an itemized list 
to make a subpoint under a main point. (A long red bar appears in front 
of everything.)


I'm afraid I know nothing about your second question, but if you find

Re: Lyx configuration on a Mac: problems

I'll confess that I've been using LyX on my Mac with no trouble, but 
something in your description struck me as similar to a difficulty I had 
a short time ago on my Linux box.


The specific symptoms you cited were an inability to reconfigure and an 
inability to make PDF and DVI files. I saw these exact symptoms on my 
Linux box and someone on this mailing list suggested that one of my 
layout files was the problem. I found the problematic file, removed it, 
and have had no trouble since.


You might look for this. You might also check the permissions on the 
layout files. If none of this seems to fix the problem, let us know what

Thank-you for the quick help (especially Paul Rubin)! 


For any who are interested, I ran configure.py. It turned out that LyX was 
failing because of a .layout file I no longer use. When I copied my favorites 
into the new copy of LyX, I must have not been thinking and copied this old one 
in as well.

I'm not sure why it didn't work (it used to), but removing it solved the

I've been using LyX for several years now on Fedora Linux, Windows XP,

Converting to HTML

2008-04-04 Thread Jason Waskiewicz
My question is whether I can insert a command that will appear in the 
header of an .html file created by LyX. I'd like to do it through the 
document settings or other means. Some background follows.


I have been using LyX for some time now and have grown to like it. I 
particularly like that I can save homework solutions for the Chemistry 
and Physics courses I teach both in .pdf for printing and .html for 
putting on the web.


I want to put some sort of security on the web versions to at least make 
it difficult to print the file. When I used OpenOffice, I could save a 
.pdf that required a password for printing. With LyX, I didn't see how 
to do this, but I inserted the lines:


style media=print

body {display: none;}

 /style


in the header of the file after LyX created it. Though not too  time 
consuming, my preference is to just have it in the file.


Is there a way to do this with LyX, possibly through the document settings?
