Re: LibreOffice to LyX

2021-10-03 Thread John White
We do everything in lyx, even one page letters, except that some courts require 
that 
submitted orders be in doc format (in case the judge wants to edit).  For those 
docs we 
use libreoffice.

Re: Xubuntu 20.04: Qt Library

2020-12-12 Thread John White
This sounds like an excellent way to keep lyx up to date, but I am clueless 
about alternative repositories.  If they require github, I'm not interested.  
Lyx 2.3.2 ships with Debian Buster and it works fine for my purposes.  I have 
learned that adding software versions not in the Buster repository sometimes 
causes problems.  So I will probably keep using 2.3.2 until next summer or so 
when, I expect, Debian should come out with a new version.

Best,

John

Re: Changes to LaTeX

2020-11-01 Thread John White
Thanks Doc,

Lyx is working just fine now, and for years last past, so I will follow your 
suggestion and leave well enough alone.  I am not a "cutting edge" guy.  I am 
more a "prehistoric sledgehammer" kind of guy. I don't even have a cell phone, 
preferring to use twinkle as a sip phone on my laptop.

Re: LyX acting differently between computers

Hi Doc!

Somebody gave me a Raspberry PI the other day and I have no clue what to do 
with it.  Does Lyx work on it?  Does Lyx work on Raspbian ?

Hope this finds you well and happy.

I have marked this email as important as I might need it in the future.  

I have used lyx for many years and like Charlie just go  to the Debian 
(currently 
Buster) repository and download it (currently repository has 2.3.2-1).  Works 
fine 
with texlive.  However I keep hearing that the QT people's efforts to monetize 
QT 
may start to give lyx problems.

Thank you Jürgen and Rich,

I just tried Jürgen's suggestion and it works perfectly.  This problem has

Re: Section fonts-there must be an easier way

2019-11-25 Thread John White
I am doing a koma document with sections.  The section font is too 
large. So I go to each section manually, highlight it and change font 
from larger to large.  And if there are subsections, they are now same 
size as sections, so I have to manually reduce font size of sub-sections.

Isn't there an easier way to do this? Isn't there a way to globally change 
section and sub-section font size?

Thanks for any input.

fixing tiny font on laptop

2019-11-15 Thread John White

For some unknown reason, my lyx fonts on all files suddenly 
became too tiny to read. Internet says use mouse wheel to fix, 
which works fine (I borrowed one).  But my laptop doesn't have a 
mouse or a mouse wheel.  Any alternative way of getting normal 
font size back on a mouse-less laptop? I may not be able to 
borrow a mouse next time this happens.

Re: pleading paper part 2

2019-09-16 Thread John White
 As regular readers of this list might recall, I do a lot of work which 
requires 
pleading paper. I have that figured out pretty much. When I have a document 
that 
requires a table of contents or similar complexities I use a template with 
pleading 
paper as the background.  And when I need exact line numbers, I have a template 
for that.  But when I just want the document to have regular, evenly spaced 
lined 
numbers on the left, the template I use requires that export to ps2pdf.  If I 
export 
to lautex the line numbering starts in the middle of the page.
> 
I would much rather print with a lautex pdf all the time.  Any suggestions as 
to how 
I can get lautex to start line numbers at the top of the page?

Most apologies if this appears in the list twice.  I keep forgetting my proper

el,

Any chance that you could attach a .lyx file with an short example of how the 
preamble would look?  For lazy latex newbies like me.  If this would take too 
much 
time, forget this request.  I will probably eventually learn enough myself.  Or 
I could 
probably pigeon-hole my college professor latex-expert son-in-law when I visit

Background doesn't work.

2019-08-25 Thread John White
I could have sworn I sent something like this to the lyx users list yesterday, 
but don't 
see it in my "sent" file. So here goes, possibly again. 

I have the following code in Document>settings>LaTeX preamble (Lyx 2.3.2). 


\usepackage{background}
\backgroundsetup{
   contents={%
  \includegraphics[width=\pagewidth]{lines.pdf}
   },
   angle=0,
   scale=1.0,
   opacity=1.0
}

I also have lines.pdf in the same subdirectory.  See attached.  However, lyx 
does not 
see lines.pdf.  

Does anyone know how I can get lyx to see and open lines.pdf in the background. 
 I 
also tried watermark, but could only see DRAFT in watermark.

Can't get background to work

2019-08-24 Thread John White
Lyx doesn't see lines.pdf (see attached). If I could get to that point I could 
probably take it the rest of the way. I tried watermark too, and got the 
default 
DRAFT ok but could not make it see text.

My goal is to have a papers generated with lyx to, when printed, have evenly 
spaced, double spaced numbers shown on the left side. I don't like the line 
generator program as it numbers every line irregularly (i.e. is too specific).  
I just 
need 28 double spaced lines running down the left side of each page. (pleading 
paper).

Any suggestions are appreciated.

lyxblogger

2019-08-10 Thread John White
Speaking of lyxhtml, does anyone still use lyxblogger for their 
wordpress site?  It apparently has not been tended to for many years. 

I am so used to writing in lyx that I find it easier to first write the blog in 
lyx and then cut and paste it into wordpress, therein losing some of the 
formatting. 

Lyxblogger purports to keep the formatting when posting to wordpress.  
It seems to still work, sort of, but hangs up when accessing the 
wordpress site.

Cause I am old.  Habit over 20 years or more with lovely lyx.

I don't see a Lualatex in the export menu.  I see pdf (luatex), which I am 
using on 
my 2.3.2 lyx version, and latex (luatex) which I have never tried.  

I like Noto Serif too. If you get the chance, please tell your friend that 
italicized Noto 
serif text prints as regular (non-italicized text) when exported via pdf 
(luatex) using 
Koma script article on my Debian stretch machine.  Italics are not lost when, 
all else 
being the same, I switch from Noto serif to new century schoolbook.

As an experiment, I typed two sentences from an actual opinion of our Court 
(presuming it uses its own rules) and compared them to the lyx pdf version, 
using 
14pt custom with koma script article and 12pt base with regular article class 
and it 
is clear that the 12pt base is too small.  However, the font the Court uses is 
slightly 
smaller than the koma-script 14.  As the rule says 14pt "or larger" I think I 
will stick 
with your koma-script 14pt, even if I have to trash a two or three paragraphs 
of 
my amazing prose.

Thanks again!

Both Century Schoolbook and Noto Serif look so big at 14 points when exported 
to 
pdf.  I think I simply don't understand font sizes. When compared with some of 
the 
size urls (e.g. https://www-archive.mozilla.org/newlayout/testcases/css/
sec526pt2.htm[1]) the base 12 in lyx to me looks like at least 14 point.  When 
I get to 
office tomorrow I will print and see if I can figure it out better with a ruler 
(no 
printer at home).  Aside from appearance, the issue is legally significant as 
briefs 
are subject to strict page limits and 14 point fills up a page quickly.

14 point type

2019-07-03 Thread John White
I am doing a brief for court. The rules provide: "A proportionally spaced 
typeface 
(e.g., Century Schoolbook, CG Times, Times New Roman, and New Century) must be 
14-point or larger." I use new century Schoolbook.

As the base text is 12 point, the only way I see to do this is to highlight the 
text and 
mark it in lyx text-style as "large,"  which throws off symmetry of the 
document (e.g. 
subsections are also "large.")

This is a real pain.  Any suggestions as to how I can otherwise get text in the 
document to 14 point?

One thing:  I am relying on 

https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/40104/difference-between-latex-and-word-in-setting-font-size#40108[1]

and common sense for my conclusion that when I check base size 12 in document 
settings 12 point text is produced. However, on the printed page base size text 
actually looks to be closer to 14 point.  Perhaps if I actually measure the 
type when 
printed base size 12 will really be closer to 14 point? 

I am using lyx version 2.3.2 on Debian stretch.

Thanks for any suggestions?

Yes.  I have lyx 2.3.0 loaded. Lyx 2.3.2 is in the Debian Testing Repository.  
When I 
try to update to lyx 2.3.2 it affects about 40+ other programs, so I think I 
will wait for 
a while.  I understand Debian is coming out with a later version (I use 
stretch) in a 
couple of months.

Now that I know your double-space/single-space/double-space trick, the wait 
will be 
more than bearable.

Re: excessive spacing between sections, quotations etc

2019-03-07 Thread John White
Hi Paul and thanks much.

Changing the text to single space and then changing back to double space works! 
 
This is much faster than putting in -.2 or -3 in the custom vertical space 
dialog box 
before each offending extra-space.  Seems to me that in the 10 years or so that 
I 
have been using lyx I should have discovered this earlier on my own. Mea Culpa.

BUT, it sure seems to me that we should not need to go from Double Space to 
Single Space and then back again just to ensure even spacing between 
paragraphs.  
I generally make quotations single space and normal argument in double space.  
Going from one to the other in a draft risks confusion in the final document.

Do you think I should enter a bug report?  I don't recall having ever done one, 
but 
suppose I could figure it out.

Thanks,

I was using indentation but switching to vertical space did not help.  I am

the same file with vertical space and the generated pdf so you can see.  The 
problem is the excess space between paragraphs 2 and 3.

2.3.0 on debian stretch.  Article class.

I love lyx, but for years I have been bothered by its tendency to often put too 
much 
blank space between different paragraphs, sections, quotations, etc. 

Far as I know, the only way to fix this is to insert vertical space, e.g. 
insert/
formating/vertical space/custom -.2 in or some such.  Quite time consuming.

Anyone know a better way?

Re: graphics question

2018-06-23 Thread John White
Paul,

Thaniks for the suggestion. However I am using absolute path (/home/
johwhi/.lyx/templates).

BUT, you gave me an idea.  I moved the lyx file and the associated pdf to a 
non-hidden path (/home/documents/lyx and it opens fine (shows the graphic).

However if I point in preferences to the new non-hidden path, it still won't 
show the graphic if I open with "new from templates."  I have to just "open" 
it for the graphic to show.

AND, if I reconfigure after putting the new path into preferences, it reverts 
to the former .lyx hidden template file, i.e.. I can't save the non-hidden 
template path.

Hopes this makes sense.  I am using 2.3.0 on debian stretch.

John

graphics question

2018-06-21 Thread John White
When inserting a pdf graphic into a template, and saving the file, the next 
time I open the template, I have to re-insert the graphic, even though the 
graphic is in the same template folder. 

However, if I open the same lyx template in dolphin, it opens with the graphic 
shown.  

Anyone know how I can save the template in such a manner as will show when 
opened from lyx' with  "new from template"?

Re: pleading paper

2018-06-07 Thread John White
Dr. Lisse,

Brilliant!  Thank you so much.  This is clearly the best option,  I still have 
to learn more before using it.

For example, I get the error:

"LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in lines.pdf (no BoundingBox)."

But if I "show output anyway" I get lined paper.  Lines are going horizontal 
rather than vertical, but nonetheless there is my text AND numbered lines in 
the same document!

Thanks again!

John

Steve,

Thank you very much for the suggestions, but I think (since filing the brief on 
lined printed paper in the copier) I have just about got it to where lyx will 
print the lined and numbered paper, along with TOC, index list and indexes.  

If you open the attached file in lyx 2.2.2 and print it with Cntrl-D, and then 
ignore the many errors with "show output anyway", you can see I am almost 
there.  (I deleted most of the brief to avoid boring you).

Would the Devs and other lyx/LaTeX experts please take a look at the attached 
code.  Though I know little about LaTeX, I am told by lawlist that it works 
fine with pdflatex, generating pleading paper numbered along the left side, 
plus 
a table of authorities.  

And the same code works fine in a new blank lyx document.  However, as soon as 
I try to insert an index list in lyx 2.2.2, it blows up.  It would be most 
appreciated if the code could be altered so that it a lyx document could print 
lined pleading paper AND a table of contents and index list.

I am also attaching the pleadingpapercode I normally use.  It works fine and 
prints the TOC and inserting an index list does not blow it up.  However, 
actually indexing (insert/index entry) blows it up.

Thanks for assistance or suggestions.

lawlist was kind enough to send me the code which, he says, produses a table 
of contents and list of authorties in latex, using pdflatex.. But it does not 
work in lyx. Do you have a suggestion regarding how I could get TOC and 
indexes to work in lyx documents which have numbered lines along the left-hand 
side of the paper?  It is apparently not an easy thing to do.  Yet every 
lawyer who uses lyx to produce a brief with indexes and a table of contents 
needs this function.

Re: Pleading Paper / TOC question

Rich,

I have contacted and heard back from lawlist, the person who posted the 
pleading paper template.s  Nice fellow but he is a latex guy, not a lyx guy. 
He does not know about lyx indexes. 

I filed the brief yesterday using lyx indexes and TOC.  Before filing, I had to 
go to the office and put blank lined and numbered (left side of page) paper in 
the copier.  I then printed to the copier and it was fine, albeit the procedure 
is quite cumbersome.   Would be much better if I could print the indexed file 
while having lyx generate the numbers down the left hand side of the paper.

Thank you.  Lawlist's post is very good.  It is what I use (see my original 
post on Pleading Paper / TOC.  It well prints any document that does not have 
indexes.  However, adding an index blows it up.

Thanks Rich,

I gave lyx  2.3. a try from debian stretch backports and the results are the 
same, so I went back to 2.2.2 (for a while).
What I am planning to do, if all else fails, is print the document, or parts 
of it, on blank pleading paper with numbers already printed down the left hand 
side.  Lyx prints the indexes (table of contents, table of authorities, table 
of statutes, etc,) very well.

Unless I take out flushright (near bottom of code), the Table of Contents won't

If I take out flushright, everything works fine but I don't get pleading paper 
with numbers down the left side.

Does anyone have a suggestion?  I would most appreciate some help as I need 
both (TOC and lined pleading paper)

I got xdvki/dvi to print fine (my alert IT guy added a missing dependency), so 
only question now is:  what happened to the print icon in lyx?  It used to be 
in the "File" dropdown menu.  Its no huge deal as now to print I press cntrl-d 
and then cntrl-p, instead of just cntrl-p as before, but it still seems 
strange that there is no print icon in my lyx 2.2.2.





No print icon in Debian Stretch lyx 2.2.2

2017-05-02 Thread John White
I upgraded from Jessie to Stretch and now there is no print icon in lyx.  
Cntrl-d brings up xdvik and renders a dvi file.  Pushing cntrl-P in xdvik says 
it prints, but it doesn't.   So I have to export to pdf to print.

Any suggestions as to how I might get a print option in lyx?

Just a question here. One of the reasons use LyX is because I thought

Now I wonder? I assume that I will lose some file and their content
anyway?

The output that you show looks like Postscript and not lyx in any reasonable
way.


It doesn't matter if no one can help me with the problem. However, I
would like to know if I will lose old LyX files, be unable to open them
as time goes on and LyX evolves?

LyX uses an auxiliary program called lyx2lyx to convert the old formats and
until the moment we have a very good record. If there are any bugs we fix them
as soon as possible. I am not aware of any file where we have failed the
conversion.

Thanks el,

The article looks very promising.  I see that the mailmerge package is in the 
texlive extras 
debian repositories, I have downloaded texlive extras and will give it a try.  
First have to 
remember how to make mailmerge live.  I have done that kind of thing before so 
it should 
not be all that difficult.

mailmerge

2017-03-31 Thread John White
I use lyx and am using it more and more in what I call "mailmerge" mode, 
similar to how I 
once used mailmerge in Wordstar.  Once I have a good form document (say a will 
or a 
contract) I replace the names with, say "@name1" and then I replace all @name1 
with the 
new data, e.g. "Judy Jones".

This works fine, but on longer documents (say a 40 page document) with, say 
@name1 
through @name12, it can get a bit confusing.  I put all the replacement data in 
a separate lyx 
file and go back and forth to that file until I have made all replacements.

I use article class.

Is there perhaps a better layout or class or perhaps something else lyx that I 
should be 
using?

Thanks

John

I don't understand how to fix it so I am planning to go back to the last 
version of lyx, which 
exported to ms word quite well.

Re: lyx to latex

2017-03-19 Thread John White
Apparently.  At least I don't see it in lyx 2.2.2.  

We are required occasionally by a court to submit proposed orders in microsoft 
word. These 
are on pleading paper.  Easy to prepare the order in lyx but in exporting it to 
microsoft it 
loses the line numbers. Libreoffice and openoffice do a better job, but when 
exporting from 
either libreoffice or openoffice to .doc, the line numbers are also lost.  

I can't recall if I had this problem when we could export directly from lyx to 
rtf, but I don't 
think so.

index format

2015-09-21 Thread John White
As it sits, I get index entries that look like this.

"Anse v District Court, 192 P.3d 738 (Nev 2008), 14"

I would like the entry to look like this:

"Anse v District Court, 192 P.3d 738 (Nev 2008) . . . . . . . . . . . 
14"

Any thoughts?

I run lyx 2.1.2 on Debian Jessie, using makeindex.

Re: Re: xvdik/pdf problem

I completely deleted the texlive package in the debian jessie repository and 
downloaded it from the texlive website, but still get same problem (dvik shows 
the line numbers beginning in the middle of the pleading paper rather than at 
the top). Its something to do with the dvi rendering as the file prints to the 
printer just fine, with the line numbers in the proper place.

I get same problem when exporting to pdflatex BUT NOT when exporting to ps2pdf. 
 
Ps2pdf renders the line numbers on pleading paper just fine. 

This problem did not occur with the version of lyx which came with Debian 
Wheezy,

Again, any comments would be appreciated.  I miss cntrl-D.
