Thanks, but Jürgen's example was sufficient.

The example I attached was extremely simplified compared to what I actually
need to make--as I said in my original post, there are various typographic
bells and whistles that need to go into the node labels, including IPA,
small caps, Greek letter subscripts, and other things. So I am going to
have to fine-tune node positioning.

I prefer to have everything in one document whenever possible, for visual
consistency and for passing the paper to the's journal proof people. The
disadvantage of the method you suggested is that one has to tweak the image
size so that the fonts look like they came from the same universe. And then
if anything changes in the diagram, you have to redo it in multiple places.

Steve, both linguists and mathematicians use LaTeX for lattices, trees, and
various other graphical diagrams. The reason to do so is the one I alluded
to above: they mix text with graphics, and often they have to include text
with math typesetting. We've been doing this for decades.

Ah damn, the whitespace will get you every time! Thanks, Jürgen. Your
example works here.

And thanks for the tikz tip--I was actually thinking of using xypic if all
else failed, which would also do what I need. The Government Phonology
thing in forest comes so close...

Forest beyond basics

2021-12-19 Thread Maria Gouskova via lyx-users
Dear LyX users,

(Actually, I suspect this is a question for Jürgen S., but on the off
chance that someone else knows the answer...)

I need to produce a diagram with the structure shown here. It was produced
using the obsolete xyling package (see the attached xyling_test files):
[image: tree_i_want.png]
All the nodes will have a lot of linguist-specific bells and whistles, like
IPA fonts and small caps and other stuff. XYling has not been updated in 15
years; I barely got the doc to compile. So, xyling is no good for what I
need.

In the process of trying to work out how to make that tree happen in
forest, the package that LyX's linguistics module directly supports, I
concluded that I will need to use the "draw" functionality. But I can't
work out how to make the \draw commands work inside the tree insets. I
tried to follow an example from the forest manual (number (21) on p. 9 of
this, http://mirrors.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/forest/forest-doc.pdf,
and realized that there is no obvious way to pass options in the
\begin{forest}  ... \end{forest} space beyond those that pertain to nodes
(i.e., appear inside the [ ] brackets). The options just get ignored, or
else prevent the PDF from being compiled.

Things I've tried:

1) Declaring forest overtly in the preamble and passing the whole
\begin{forest} ...\end{forest} block as ERT. That throws errors.

2) Using the native LyX forest support, and passing options as ERT inside
the Tree inset. I noticed in the code preview pane that the \draw backslash
is replaced with \textbackslash. I tried replacing the $s$ stuff with ERT,
too. The code pane preview looks correct, but the file does not compile,
throwing a bunch of errors along the lines of "Package pgfkeys Error:",
etc. (I assume people can reproduce these...)

Oh, also, I tried the example from the manual in TeXMaker to verify it
wasn't some oddity of my TeX installation, and it compiled okay (except for
the "background tree" option). It looked a lot more like what's in the
manual than anything LyX produced (attached).

So, yeah, I have a workaround in case it can't work--I could produce the
doc in LyX, then export to TeX and finish the lattice thing there. I was
just hoping there was an easier way.

Yes, the way this autocomplete function behaves is very unhelpful and
impossible to control, which is why I was looking for ways to turn it
off... Even if hitting Esc twice allowed Tab to move on to the next cell,
it would be better than what currently happens.

I just went to see if a bug report exists on this, and it looks like this

Paul, I also have cua on Linux Mint. The rest of my LyX is minimally
customized, so whatever is on by default is what I usually have.
One good way to set this off is to have words in the text around the table
that start with the same substring. Try this for a minimal example:

"notion, notation, noble, nonsectarian, nondeterministic"

then in table: enter "no" in a cell, and hit Tab. (If you hit "yes", it
should move you to the next tab, which iis what we want.") After "no",
though, I see "nominal" in my minimal example, as well as some of the words
from the list I entered above.

Tab autocomplete behavior in tables

2020-11-30 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi LyX users,

I'm probably missing something obvious in Preferences, but I couldn't
figure out how to turn off tab autocompletion for tables. I don't mind it
in math mode, so it's checked, but I pretty much never ever want that
behavior in a table. When I hit the Tab key in a table, I want to advance
to the next cell, and not to see a drop-down menu of random words that
start with the same string I just typed.

so, how do I make Tab always advance to the next cell in a table?

That wasn't exactly what I was after, since APAv6 comes with so many of its
own formatting quirks I would have to undo that it would take five times as
long as doing the float placement by hand.

But, I dug around some more and found an elegant solution: the endfloat
package. It did exactly what I needed in one line!

Figures and tables at the end/Page of floats

2020-10-16 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi LyX users,

I am preparing a manuscript for a publisher who wants the figures and
tables to be placed at the end of the document, with something like "Figure
X about here" in the body of the paper itself. I thought that the "Page of
Floats" setting would accomplish this, but it seems to group all figures
and tables into pages scattered throughout the document. (Except for the
last table, which gets placed at the very end of the document, after the
bibliography, in the middle of its own page.)

I guess the solution that would definitely work would be to put all the
float insets at the end manually, select "here definitely" for the
positioning option, and then use cross-references to define the positioning
of the "Figure X about here" tags. It just seems like there should be a
more elegant way to accomplish this. Can the "page of floats" option be
controlled somehow?

I used JabRef and BibDesk (Mac OS) for years, and then KDE's KBibTeX, but
lately I just open my .bib file in Vim. I found that KBibTeX screwed up the
syntax of my file (which has something like 6000 references now, so it was
painful to debug). In Vim, I see the syntax highlighting and it's easy to
see and fix problems. Not super-helpful if you're looking for a GUI, but I
just wanted to confirm that you are not alone in being frustrated with the
available GUI options.

I had this problem with Master PDF Editor, actually. I updated the app and
my combination keys stopped working (as did Ibus X-Sampa, an IPA keyboard
layout). After some back-and-forth with the developers, I figured out that
the problem was a QT dependency, libqt5svg5 >= 5.9.8. The Debian repos are
up to 5.9.5. But it isn't one of the dependencies of lyx, which seems to be
using QT4, so there may be something else going on.

Your screen font for the GUI probably does not have the right character. If

No, and yes--and I also tried a few different methods of PDF creation
before giving up. I tried various classic ones and XeTeX, too, thinking it
was a font issue.

I have TeX Live 2017/Debian, pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18. Digging into it
a bit more, I tried a simple TeX file, and ran into the same problem--so it
wasn't really a LyX issue but a problem with my TeX installation.

For posterity, here's how I fixed it: first, I looked at the tex log file,
which contained the following line:

LaTeX Font Info:Try loading font information for U+ding on input line
27.
(/home/.../texmf/tex/latex/bbding/Uding.fd
File: Uding.fd 1996/02/01 v1.0 BBding font definitions
)
LaTeX Font Info:Font shape `U/ding/m/n' will be
(Font)  scaled to size 128.3pt on input line 27.

It seems that my own texmf directory had an old and apparently problematic
version of bbding, and since TeX looks there first, it didn't find the
texlive-fonts-extra bbding that is installed elsewhere on my system. I
removed the /home bbding directory and tried again, and everything returned
back to normal.

What's sort of interesting is that this old bbding directory has been there
for well over a decade, survived various OSes, and only started causing
problems now. I guess the texlive folks decided to "improve" something. Oh
well, thanks, Paul!

bbding symbols are hyooge

2020-01-17 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi LyX users,

Can anyone reproduce this? All I have in my sample file is
\usepackage{bbding} in the preamble, and something like \Checkmark{} or
\FiveStar{} in the body of the file. These used to come out to scale with
the text, and now they are absolutely enormous in the PDF. Doesn't seem to
depend on whether non-TeX fonts are used. I have LyX 2.3.3 on Linux Mint; I
think at least as recently as this past May (2.3.2?), bbding worked fine.

(I can produce a checkmark with \checkmark{} from the amsmath package, so
this isn't critical, just kind of weird.)

In my experience, the word count limit is just a guide to the
appropriate length of a paper. Ain't nobody got time to check whether
you have 502 words in your abstract or 497. But generally, it will be
apparent when you have 750 words and the limit is 500. So, as long as
you are sticking to the spirit of the word limit, you don't have to
worry about whether your references are counted as 4 words or 5.

I've checked the LyX word counter against MS Word/LibreOffice before,
and there are always slight differences in the counts, even for a text
without references. It all comes down to different views on what a
"word" is. Even when you're talking orthographic words (strings with
spaces around them), people will have different opinions on certain
tricky cases. I really don't think you are ever going to have to duke
it out with your editor, though.

Also, some journals explicitly exclude references from their word
count limit. If they care enough to legislate this, they will usually
be clear about it on their submission pages.

Any idea when Liviu's PPA and/or the official Debian release are going to
be updated to 2.3.3? I just had LyX 2.3.2 crash on me (the Instant Preview
Math bug) and I see that the bug is fixed in 2.3.3, so I was hoping to
upgrade without having to build from source.

Ugh, no, this caused another problem--please do NOT try this in
Dropbox. Dropbox interprets symlinks as an instruction to upload the
entire linked directory to the relevant folder.

I'll wait for the fix to arrive...

Image paths

2019-06-07 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi all,

There seems to be a change in how LyX is handling paths to images--I
haven't done the homework on tracking down if and when this was
introduced, but I was wondering whether it would be something that
could be undone?

Here is the problem. I would like to be able to refer to the following:

~/place/to/file/image.pdf

without LyX converting it to

/home/dirname/place/to/file/image.pdf

It didn't do this in the past, but seems to now. I don't think I've
changed anything in the configuration.

The reason I need paths to stay un-expanded on a per-user basis is
that I sometimes switch computers, and sometimes am co-authoring with
other people, so their home directories are obviously going to be
different. Is there any way to force LyX to not edit those paths?

I saw some discussion of relative paths on the list in the past, but
it wasn't resolved, as far as I could see.

No, I am having the same problem regardless of the desktop
environment. MATE and Cinnamon both show an empty window and no .tex

No, the MIME type is correct (same as yours)--.tex files are TeX documents.

The desktop environment is Cinnamon.  But it's not Cinnamon vs.
MATE--I just logged into MATE and it's got the same issue here.

Here is the LyX build Info, in case that helps:

LyX 2.3.2 (2018-12-08)
Configuration
Host type: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
Special build flags: build=release std-regex use-hunspell use-aspell use-enchant
Bundled libraries: (none)
C++ Compiler: g++ (5.4.0)
C++ Compiler flags: -O2 -std=c++14
C++ Compiler user flags:
Linker flags:
Linker user flags:
Qt Frontend:
Qt version: 4.8.7
Packaging: posix
LyX binary dir: /usr/bin
LyX files dir: /usr/share/lyx

I cannot remember how I installed LyX originally, to be honest. But I
have this in my var/lib/apt/lists:

ppa.launchpad.net_lyx-devel_release_ubuntu_dists_xenial_InRelease
ppa.launchpad.net_lyx-devel_release_ubuntu_dists_xenial_main_binary-amd64_Packages
ppa.launchpad.net_lyx-devel_release_ubuntu_dists_xenial_main_binary-i386_Packages
ppa.launchpad.net_lyx-devel_release_ubuntu_dists_xenial_main_i18n_Translation-en
ppa.launchpad.net_lyx-devel_release_ubuntu_dists_xenial_main_source_Sources

Which I think means that at some point I added Liviu's PPA and have
been just getting it with apt updates.

I am fairly sure this is a virgin install, without any configuration
tinkering--I don't do much personalizing because I switch between
machines so much.

I've verified that this is an issue on both of my Mint Sarah
installations. I didn't copy the configurations between these, so it's
independent. (And the one that the screenshots are from is barely
configured--not my main machine for writing).

Import LaTeX (plain) dialog

2019-02-28 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi all,

Hopefully a quickie--I cannot tell if it's an OS issue or a LyX GUI
issue. I'm on Linux Mint Sarah, LyX 2.3.2. When I go to
File>Import>LaTeX (plain), and the LaTeX file type is chosen in the
drop-down menu in the file open dialog, no .tex files show up. All
files (including .tex ones) are visible when I choose "All Files".

And unrelatedly, in the Export As dialog, the drop-down file type menu
has a number of duplicates: six different LaTeX options, unlabeled,
four Plain Texts, and several Open Documents.

Thanks, Juergen! I upgraded covington to the newer version, and now Beamer

Beamer/Covington conflict

2018-10-01 Thread Maria Gouskova
Dear LyX users,

I am using Beamer with the Linguistics module loaded, and I'd like to use
Covington numbering inside the presentations (as well as the handout,
beamer-article style). There appears to be a conflict between the \example
and \examples environments in Beamer and the Linguistics module
(covington.sty) environments by the same name. Is there an elegant way to
resolve this in LyX?

By the way, this is more of an issue in the beamer file than in the
beamer-article file--the presentation doesn't even compile past the title
slide, whereas beamer-article displays the numbered example content after
throwing a bunch of errors.

Minimal example attached.

I am using LyX 2.3.0 on Linux Mint/Deb (the most recent version available
in that ppa that's being discussed in the other thread).

Hi all,

Lyx 2.3.0 here on Linux Mint something. I tried to make the example on the
LinguistLyX wiki work:

https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LinguistLyX#toc8

Minimal example attached. I get the following error:

"Package pgfkeys Error: I do not know the key '/tikz/triangle' and I am
going

\end{forest}

This error message was generated by an \errmessage command, so I can't give
any explicit help. Pretend that you're Hercule Poirot: Examine all clues,
and deduce the truth by order and method."

The first tree in my mini-example works just fine, as do more complicated
trees. It's just "triangle" that throws this error. I am no Hercule Poirot
so I turn to you. What am I missing here? The manual for forest is not
super-helpful here.

Just to clarify, it compiles fine into a PDF, it's just the LyX side that's
kind of confusing. The individual examples aren't labeled as such, so
there's only one blue label in LyX for a block of them and not a new one
per line.

Covington/Linguistics numbering

2016-10-13 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi all,

So in the Linguistics module, two numbering environments are available:
consecutive and multiline numbering. Ever since upgrading to 2.2.1, I'm
having trouble entering multiple consecutive numbering examples--the next
line is not numbered, so they all behave sort of like multiline until a
different environment is introduced between two examples. That wasn't a
problem in older versions (see http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/LinguistLyX#toc10).

Used to be:

(1) example (consec)
(2) example (consec)

(1) example (multiline)
 example (multiline cont'd)

Now (2.2.1):

(1) example (consec)
 example (consec still)

I know that there is a covington issue in 2.2.1 but have the updated
version of covington.sty, 1.2, so is this something else? Or have there
been changes in how this environment works in 2.2x?

Hmm, that doesn't do anything over here. I keep hitting "enter", but that
never takes me out of the original frame.

But for anyone else looking for a solution to this, I did dig up an answer.

First of all, apparently, this change was introduced in 2.2.0:

http://git.lyx.org/?p=lyx.git;a=blob_plain;f=lib/RELEASE-NOTES;hb=97a3a64290e3c1afa2fede081ef17736be636c5a

And the solution (detailed in the User Guide section 3.4.6, but the
instructions are out-of-date in the Beamer manual) is to go to Edit>Start
New Environment. This is not specific to Frames but will start a new
instance of whatever environment you're in. If you are in a Frame
environment when you do this, it will insert a separator and start a new
frame.

The next mystery is what to call this in when assigning key bindings?

Frame separator

2016-09-07 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi all,

Upgraded to 2.2.1 and having trouble finding the Separator environment for
Beamer presentations. I used to have it associated to a key binding, and
that doesn't work anymore, but I don't see it in the list of paragraph
styles, either.

The Beamer manual says this:

" Consecutive frames have to be separated from each other. This is done by
means of the Separator paragraph style."

But for some reason that's not showing in my list.
I can work around this for now by copying the separator+frame environments
from the Beamer manual, but there must be a better way!

I am on Mac OS 10.8, Linguistics module enabled.


And, I just checked my Linux installation (LyX 2.0 something), and the
Separator style is in the first block of styles visible in the list, near
"Standard". It's definitely not there anymore in the Mac version.

I didn't have one defined by default for PDF(graphics) at all. When I
added a PDF(graphics) to EPS converter, it defaulted to:

python -tt $$s/lyx2lyx/lyx2lyx -c big5 $$i > $$o

Which still produces an aliased PDF.

I tried defining it your way, but it seems that pdftops is not
available on my setup. LyX throws up a non-specific error.


I can't debug this properly since I am away from my other machine,
which has Mac OS 10.9x and (as far as I recall) does not have this
problem. Could be a MacTeX version difference? Or just OS-specific?

Okay, thanks--I probably won't do this since I have found a workaround
for my original problem, and the figures and trees all come out
looking good now. I don't usually use ps2pdf anyway, it was only
because of xyling's peculiarity.

By the way, if anyone stumbles upon this discussion in the future, the
solution was to edit the xyling.sty file as follows:

Original:
\RequirePackage[color,all, dvips]{xy}

Change to:
\RequirePackage[color,all]{xy}

This will take away the ability to create color branches in a tree,
which is probably not a big loss. I can't remember ever seeing colored
branches in a published linguistics paper.

P.S. I was able to find a workaround by modifying xyling.sty by hand,
so I can now use pdflatex with xyling. But I am still curious about
what's causing the aliasing in ps2pdf.

Thanks, Charles--it was simpler than that even. I thought for some
reason that one had to load TIPA in the preamble in order to use it in
Qtree, but everything works without it, so simply removing
\usepackage(tipa) from the preamble in the XeTeX version fixed my
problem.

So the problem here is that TIPA needs to be called expressly even if
the Linguistics module is loaded, if you want to use IPA in syntactic
trees. I have a few shorthand commands for IPA symbols in my preamble,
which also would not work without calling TIPA. But TIPA does not need
to be loaded for XeTeX/non-system fonts even if IPA symbols are called
in qtree, unless there is a conflict between custom-defined function
names and whatever XeTeX introduces (apparently \dz{} is taken, for
example).

For the two or three people in the world using LyX with IPA and
syntactic trees, I am including two example files, one that uses Arial
and another one that uses plain TeX with the linguistics module.

Hi all,

Elsevier wants me to create a .tex file for them that uses Arial--a

A bit of digging suggests this is because of an incompatibility

the qtree package). Is there a workaround for this?

Re: LyX preview problem

2014-10-16 Thread Maria Gouskova
Hi all,

I am having a similar problem with a related package--xyling (it
relies on xypic, just has some extra macros for linguistic trees).

OS 10.6.8
LyX 2.1.2

File attached. When I hit ps2pdf to preview, the file just does not
appear, although LyX thinks it's successfully made a PDF. I can create
a pdf from a minimal file using Postscript, but something is wrong
with the PS2PDF script. Unfortunately, I cannot generate a PDF from my
more complex file using Postscript--that one also reports successful
file creation, but not PS or PDF appears.

Oh, and there is no cx folder in /var/folders on my system.

XeTeX and LuaTeX both have command definition conflicts for xyling,
but I've had problems generating PDFs with the simplest files using
these methods since about 2.1 (both return an error about the \sups
command being already defined). Not using \sups in the test file, as
you can see.

 Do you know why command-R doesn’t work? Is there a way to fix that?

 Dough,

 in case of a Non-TeX fonts document Command-R is using the XeTeX compiler to 
 create the PDF.
 Some content of the document makes it requiring this compiler. Without the 
 option checked
 LyX uses the normal pdflatex compiler and e.g. some special foreign 
 characters or math symbols
 are a problem here.

 Before my update I did not encounter this, so something must be different 
 now!

 This I cannot answer, sorry. But you're right - there must be the problem.
 You've talking about your update to 10.9 Mavericks? Perhaps a python problem 
 indeed.
 You may check the protocols inside the directory

 /var/folders/cx/8z8j7c710t9gcfvtljxkvjkcgn/T/lyx_tmpdir.KZwQoCf15278/lyx_tmpbuf3


 You have to look inside the directory you can see in the message window.
 The interesting file is named like lyxpreviewZ33063.log or similar.

P.S. I figured out how to change the key bindings through the GUI menu

 Hi,

So i have run into the issue that it would be good to use a unicode
 character within an ERT, but this causes a failure, one can type the

a minimal example is here http://goo.gl/d1gL6D

what method should i be using to get unicode symbols into the ERT?

I am using ERT becuase i need to use the Expex linguistics macros... it
 strikes me that maybe i should  create a module that would present the
 functionality of the ERT code to Lyx, would this solve the issue of entering
 unicode within these blocks?

is their documentation on writing modules in lyx that i can use as a
 reference? i had a quick look but could find any.

  Cheers

I don't know what Expex is or what you are trying to do exactly, and
your example file didn't clarify it for me, because you can just use
the symbol ə outside ERT and typeset the result without problems. But
one way around the problem in LyX specifically is to enter your
unicode symbols in LyX proper, and then surround them on either side
by ERT. It would look like this, with the parts in parentheses being
in ERT and the parts outside parentheses being in straight LyX text--a
transcription of supper with a syllabic ɹ:

sʌp(\textsyllabic{)ɹ(})

Just declare \usepackage{tipa} in the preamble and everything should work.

 Hi LyX users,

 I use LyX on several computers (all version 2.0.6) and cannot figure
 out which setting allows one to see invisible table grid lines. They
 helpfully show up as light gray lines on the Macs running 10.6.8, but
 not on the one running 10.8.5. Is this a setting somewhere in the GUI
 that I need to turn on?

 Maria

 Hi Maria,

 I've never heard of this particular issue but other Mac-related screen
 issues have been solved by zooming. In Tools  Preferences  Look 
 Feel  Screen Fonts, does increasing Zoom help?

 Best,

 Scott

 Hi Scott,

 No, it didn't make a difference. I increased it from 150% to 250%, no
 hint of grid lines.

 Am I imagining that showing/hiding table gridlines used to be a
 setting in the GUI somewhere?

 You could be right. I don't remember. You could see if there are any
 differences in your preferences between the two computers. But I'm
 guessing it's a Qt related issue.

 Scott


 Try this perhaps
 LyX-Preferences-Look  Feel-Colors-table on/off line (last entry in the 
 list)

 I am on LyX 2.0.6, OSX 10.7.5.

 Hi,

 I can reproduce the problem on OSX 10.8.6 here.
 The preference setting mentioned above doesn't help.

 I tested the upcoming LyX 2.0.7 with Qt-4.8.5 and Cocoa API.

 I'm almost sure it's a LyX problem and not related with Qt.
 With LyX 2.1.0 dev and the same Qt libraries the problem is gone.

 I'll investigate further.

 I recommend to file a bug on trac. Maria, do you want me to do it?

 The cause of the problem is not obvious and IMHO it's not caused by
 user action.

 Stephan


Hmm, yes, would you please? I just upgraded to LyX 2.0.7, and the
problem is still present on Mac OS 10.8.5--but not on Mac OS 10.6.8.
Something is up.

Maria

 Hi LyX users,

 I use LyX on several computers (all version 2.0.6) and cannot figure

 not on the one running 10.8.5. Is this a setting somewhere in the GUI

 Hi Maria,

 I've never heard of this particular issue but other Mac-related screen
 issues have been solved by zooming. In Tools  Preferences  Look 
 Feel  Screen Fonts, does increasing Zoom help?

 Best,

 Scott

 Hi Scott,

 No, it didn't make a difference. I increased it from 150% to 250%, no
 hint of grid lines.

 Am I imagining that showing/hiding table gridlines used to be a
 setting in the GUI somewhere?

 You could be right. I don't remember. You could see if there are any
 differences in your preferences between the two computers. But I'm
 guessing it's a Qt related issue.

 Scott


 Try this perhaps
 LyX-Preferences-Look  Feel-Colors-table on/off line (last entry in the 
 list)

 I am on LyX 2.0.6, OSX 10.7.5.

 Hi,

 I can reproduce the problem on OSX 10.8.6 here.
 The preference setting mentioned above doesn't help.

 I tested the upcoming LyX 2.0.7 with Qt-4.8.5 and Cocoa API.

 I'm almost sure it's a LyX problem and not related with Qt.
 With LyX 2.1.0 dev and the same Qt libraries the problem is gone.

 I'll investigate further.

 I recommend to file a bug on trac. Maria, do you want me to do it?

 The cause of the problem is not obvious and IMHO it's not caused by
 user action.

 Stephan


Hmm, yes, would you please? I just upgraded to LyX 2.0.7, and the
problem is still present on Mac OS 10.8.5--but not on Mac OS 10.6.8.
Something is up.

Any decent text editor will count up words for you, as will Open
Office/Libre Office. I usually use TextWrangler.app (Mac OS, freeware).
Take your PDF, copy and paste the contents into a text file, and you'll
have an estimate. All estimates of word counts are imprecise because of
variable definitions of what a  word is.

I've got a Mac here so I installed the OTF fonts the usual Mac way
(download the .tgz, drag all the .otf files therein into ~/Library/Fonts/).

In LyX, Linux Libertine doesn't appear as a choice for me unless "Use
non-TeX fonts" is checked. Then I select it and Linux Biolinum in the
drop-down menu and everything works (if pdf'd via XeTeX, anyway).

Leonid,

This isn't going to fix your other issues, but let me recommend a good
Unicode font that's free/open source and works well with Cyrillic: Linux
Libertine. There is a recent-ish patch that addresses some Cyrillic issues
there, too.

 Likely TeX/LaTeX would disagree.


 The author of The Elements of Typographical Style, Robert Bringhurst, has
 this to say about putting two spaces after a period:

 In the nineteenth century, which was a dark and inflationary age in
 typography and type design, many compositors were encouraged to stuff extra
 space between sentences. Generations of twentieth century typists were then
 taught to do the same, by hitting the spacebar twice after every period.
 Your typing as well as your typesetting will benefit from unlearning this
 quaint Victorian habit. As a general rule, no more than a single space is
 required after a period, colon or any other mark of punctuation.


 LyX is just nudging you along the path of unlearning.

 Bruce

I agree with Bill Foote that the nag message is annoying, even though
I do not share the habit. I do occasionally hit space to put in two
spaces by hand (an old habit from using word processors and text
editors).

Another inconsistency: the message in response to pressing the tab
character is simply command disabled--because the manual does not
discuss alternatives to tabbing in word processors and text editors.

Turning this stuff off after the first occurrence seems good enough to
me. Some programs, like Firefox, give you the option of keeping the
warnings or never showing them again--it's not a bad practice from a
usability standpoint.

In general, it is somewhat unhelpful when the response to your
program does something annoying in response to X is Don't do X.

I'll quote Steve Jobs: Just don't hold it that way.

I agree with Bill Foote that the nag message is annoying, even though
I do not share the habit. I do occasionally hit space to put in two
spaces by hand (an old habit from using word processors and text
editors).

Another inconsistency: the message in response to pressing the tab
character is simply "command disabled"--because the manual does not
discuss alternatives to tabbing in word processors and text editors.

Turning this stuff off after the first occurrence seems good enough to
me. Some programs, like Firefox, give you the option of keeping the
warnings or never showing them again--it's not a bad practice from a
usability standpoint.

In general, it is somewhat unhelpful when the response to "your
program does something annoying in response to X" is "Don't do X".

I'll quote Steve Jobs: "Just don't hold it that way."
