 Hi all,

 I couldn't resist the temptation in the end, and I refined a bit
 that patch for a LyX Chat, going forward along the QXMPP path.

 I just attached the new patch to the original ticket:

   http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/7964

 and being XMPP-based, it also interoperates nicely with Pidgin for
 example, as shown in the VIDEO AT:

   www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQnVxbX8A3w

 Plus, it doesn't need any chat server from the LyX side, as the many
 existing XMPP ones
 can easily be used (as in the shown example, where I'm using jabber.org).

 Comments are welcome of course, as always.

Re: Degraded figures going from ps to pdf

Hi Vivian,

I recently did the same sort of thing (also using TexWorks) and found the
same results.

It seems to me that the vector based formats (line art) work fine, but
bitmap based formats (images) go wonky / degrade.

 Hi,

 I'm encountering the following problem producing pdfs with Lyx. I've

 Windows 7 environment. I have eps figures that I generated from emf files
 (figures saved from Powerpoint slides) using the Lyx utility metafile2eps.
 The
 eps figures themselves look very nice in Ghostview, and ps output directly
 from Lyx looks good, too. However, when I generate a pdf, most of the
 figures
 (strangely, not all!) suffer visible degradation in quality. I've noticed
 that
 in figures with a combination of line art and photographs/images, it's the
 latter that fare worse. Does anyone have any idea what may be going on?
 I've
 tried bypassing Lyx and using TeXworks (with package epstopdf, and
 pdfLatex+MakeIndex+BibTex), but this gives me the same (degraded) pdf
 output.
 Conversion of the ps file generated by Lyx (which looks good) using
 Ghostview
 also results in the same pdf.

QSL card template

2012-04-18 Thread Mark Livingstone
Hi Guys,

Does anyone have a Lyx ham radio QSL card template?

Cheers,

MarkL vk4fmrk


Re: QSL card template

2012-04-18 Thread Mark Livingstone
Hi Steve,

It was about 40 yrs ago when I was in the Boy Scouts back in South
Africa that I was first exposed to Ham Radio, but like most people was
put off by morse code. Well now that is optional, and here in
Australia the Foundation License is very achievable even if you have
no prior radio / electronics knowledge. It was five nights course and
a quick theory  practical exam which I did a month or so ago.

QSL cards for those who do not know are used to confirm contacts over
the air between ham radio operators. They are highly sought after -
particularly if you get one from a more unusual country of the world.
Generally they are post card sized, and are individualised by each
ham. If you have a look at:

http://www.qsl.net/n9bt/qsl_template.htm

there is a word doc template showing the basic data needed.

What I was thinking was that, if you are like me, every time you buy
ink for your inkjet, they upsell you to a 3 pack, and you end up with
some 4x6 photo paper. I was thinking of making it that size which
makes it easier than having to get cardboard stock. You could then
print a blank and handfill it, or make it really beautiful and use Lyx
to fill in, then print. I don't know how they do it but you have those
PDFs which you can fill in the box onscreen - that could even make the
solution Lyx independent if you must!

I know that in the USA alone there are  700,000 current ham radio
operators, so there must be millions worldwide. Who knows, maybe there
are some that are Lyx users to give their ideas :-)

Thanks in advance,

MarkL vk4fmrk

Hi guys,

I recently got my Cnet download.com notification for Lyx (Mac). Looking at
it, it has been classified as Mac Software  Educational Software  Math
Software  Lyx(Mac). When I look at that section,it has SPSS, Mathcad,

I think it should rather be closer to Word Processing, or Desktop

Re: Problem Outputting Particular TIFF File

2011-09-26 Thread Mark Livingstone
Hi Jane,

It worked fine for me using Lyx 2.01 / Texlive 2011 under OS X, and also
under Lyx 2.0.0-3 / Miktex / Windows 7 professional.

Something else in your setup maybe?

Cheers,

 Hi all,

 I added a TIFF graphic (attached) to my document and, upon trying to view
 the PDF, got a message saying, no information for converting tiff format
 files to png. This is very strange, considering that the document already
 contains several TIFF images that output just fine. LyX displays the image
 correctly on screen and putting it into a new document results in the same
 error. What's going on? I'm using LyX 2.0 on Windows 7.

 Thanks,

Hi Jane,

I'm more of a Mac guys, but I know when I installed Lyx on Win7 it had to
download / configure a bunch of stuff in miktex as well as in Lyx. Have you
changed your system configuration lately? Perhaps worth doing a Miktex
update and a Lyx reconfigure?

Are the rest of the (working) tiff file generated by the same program as
your flowchart?

Common footnote

2011-06-15 Thread Mark Livingstone
Hello,

I am using article KOMA-Script. I have a number of unnumbered subsection
headers. For some of them, I want to have a common footnote (ie say five
footnotes that all have a 1 superscript and one footnote entry with the
common footnote text in the footer.)

If this is not possible, can a similar effect be achieved?

Thanks in advance,

MarkL

Need help getting APA citing working

2011-05-10 Thread Mark Livingstone
Hello!

I am commencing my B.InfoTech (Hons) and want to use Lyx for reports, thesis
etc. I have installed the new Lyx 2.0 on my Macbook Pro and am using up to
date Mactex live from the mirror.aarnet.edu.au mirror) and am experimenting
using the article (KOMA-Script) document class. Into my document, I have
inserted a Bibtex generated Bibliography, selected Natbib Author-year, using
apacite and pointed it at my marklivingstone.bib file. I typed some text
and inserted some trial citations selecting (author, year) type citation as
appropriate for varying numbers of authors.

When I do an update, and view, I get a beautiful result, but the citations
use and instead of , and the volume numbers are not italicised.

Before bothering you guys, I went to the Wiki and found the APALyX page. I
downloaded the ApaExample.lyx which I note also uses apacite and which has
correctly done ampersand signs and volume number citation style. This tells
me I must have all the requisite class / style / etc files. Unfortunately, I
am very new to Latex / Lyx, and I don't know how to fix my citations. I
considered using the ApaExample.lyx but its stylistic elements are just too
far from my desired requirements. I don't want their style, just their
citation format ;-)

On the ApaLyX page, it says you will need an apa.layout file and says to get
it (and doesn't say where from!)

Thanks in advance,

MarkL
