Re: Lyx 2.3.5.1 and 2.3.5.2 won't open old files on Mac [Almost Solved]

Hi Niklas,
It seems that I cannot reproduce this problem in Mojave. I have put a 
lye file Cloud only and, once DB has followed my order (the tag 
changes in the Finder), I have tried to open it in Lyx 2.3.5.2 and it 
worked: no empty file but the document itself appeared in LyX.



Hi!

Thanks for your effort. It has to be something in my DB installation. If 
I make a new lyx-file and save it to some dropbox-folder it will open 
nicely from LyX or by doubleclicking in Finder. But all my old LyX-files 
show up as zero bytes in listings and won't open except by clicking from 
a DB app folder. As I said I have Catalina but I suspect something odd 
in DropBox.


Regards!

Niklas

If you can open LyX from a terminal, with argument "-dbg 
files", you

might get more information. You can also  do this by opening the
messages pane (View> Messages Pane) and activating "files" debug
messages. (Go to Settings on the pane, click "Selected" then 
choose

"files").

I would guess there is something wrong with the path that LyX is
getting.

Ok, thanks! I did that but the log shows nothing unusual. But the
problem seems related only to files that reside in Dropbox 
folders.
Lyx opens the files directly but does not download the 
contents from

the Dropbox cloud. If i open a folder in the Dropbox app and
doubleclick on a LyX-file it opens correctly in LyX. It used 
to work
without hazzle from the LyX-menus before. Maybe it is a 
Dropbox problem.

It sounds like it. I assume there must be some notification to the
Dropbox app that a file has been accessed. LyX wouldn't provide 
that,

but the OS, or possibly Qt in this case, might.

Riki




It may be specific to the Mac OS. I just uploaded (via web browser) a
.lyx file to a shared Dropbox folder owned by a coauthor, then 
opened it

in LyX via the file menu with no problems. This was on Linux Mint.

What is the setting of \use_native_filedialog (possibly in 
preferences? : it defaults to

'true' if not set)

On a Mac it’s shipped w/o any assignment. So it should be true.

Hi Niklas,
Have you activated the new new functionality in Dropbox that keeps 
files in the cloud but only keeping a file handle in the DB folder. 
You could be trying to open such a file and DB seems not to be able 
to detect the request to the file but Lyx and download it before 
opening it.


Hello!

Yes, that seems to be the problem. I started using the Dropbox cloud 
and file handle option in March this year and as I remember it worked 
OK with LyX until version 2.3.5.1. But I also have new versions of 
the Mac OS and Dropbox so it is quite hard to determine the ultimate 
reason. But other files (jpg, .odt, and even .docx) open fine using 
Open in menu options and doubleclicking them in Finder or other 
filehandling programs. Just the LyX-files needs to be opened from a 
folder opened in the dropbox app. I also tried the 
\use_native_filedialog false/true option in Preferences but it makes 
no difference in my case.


Best regards

Niklas

You could add \renewcommand{\tablefootnote}{\footnote} to the document 
preamble. (If you do this a lot, you might want to cobble together a module for 
it.)

Paul


Thank you Paul! This works fine and takes me out of immediate danger zone. I 
guess a module would be a good idea in the long run.

A somewhat linked issue is that I get an error message if I use the rotate package in a 
LyX file that uses tablefootnotes: "Package tablefootnote Error: Package rotating 
loaded after tablefootnote."

Hard to find a place to load rotate before the tablefootnote though.

Many thanks again!

Niklas


Niklas,

I've attached a module. Try putting it in your local layouts folder 
(~/.lyx/layouts on most Linux systems), then reconfigure LyX, add it to your 
document (and do /not/ add the \renewcommand line in the preamble), then see if 
you get the desired results (including using the rotate package).

Cheers,
Paul


Hello,

Thank you Paul! I placed the module in (windows 10) 
"c:\Users\myselfwhatever\AppData\Local\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\ and 
reconfigured but could not find any module in restarted LyX. This might have 
something to do with my Windows configuration.

I then placed it in "c:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\" as 
administrator, reconfigured and now it is available in document settings/modules. 
Everything works including getting rid of the rotating error message :)

I will try it in my Mac tonight.

All the best!
Niklas


On Windows 7 the module should go to "C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\LyX2.3\layouts\".  I would expect this to be the same on Windows 10. The 
"c:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\" location should be left for layouts and 
modules of the official LyX distribution. When LyX 2.3.1 comes out and you upgrade, this folder will be 
overwritten and Paul's module will be lost (unless it gets incorporated into the official LyX distro.).

Andrew


The correct path name for the user configuration directory is
shown in the About LyX dialog. Probably there is a missing or
an additional space in path name here.


Hi!

Yes of course. The path should be "C:\Users\name>\AppData\Roaming\LyX2.3\". I was too quick and put it in 
~\local\Lyx2.3\Resourses in mistake. I now removed it från c:\Program 
Files (x86)\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\", reconfigured and all is well.


Thanks

On Mac the directory path name should contain LyX-2.3, BTW.

You could add \renewcommand{\tablefootnote}{\footnote} to the 
document preamble. (If you do this a lot, you might want to cobble 
together a module for it.)


Paul

Thank you Paul! This works fine and takes me out of immediate danger 
zone. I guess a module would be a good idea in the long run.


A somewhat linked issue is that I get an error message if I use the 
rotate package in a LyX file that uses tablefootnotes: "Package 
tablefootnote Error: Package rotating loaded after tablefootnote."


Hard to find a place to load rotate before the tablefootnote though.

Many thanks again!

Niklas


Niklas,

I've attached a module. Try putting it in your local layouts folder 
(~/.lyx/layouts on most Linux systems), then reconfigure LyX, add it to 
your document (and do /not/ add the \renewcommand line in the preamble), 
then see if you get the desired results (including using the rotate 
package).


Cheers,
Paul


Hello,

Thank you Paul! I placed the module in (windows 10) 
"c:\Users\myselfwhatever\AppData\Local\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\ and 
reconfigured but could not find any module in restarted LyX. This might 
have something to do with my Windows configuration.


I then placed it in "c:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts\" 
as administrator, reconfigured and now it is available in document 
settings/modules. Everything works including getting rid of the rotating 
error message :)


I will try it in my Mac tonight.

All the best!
Niklas

I suspect there's a problem with the programs used to convert PDF or EPS
images to the format LyX uses for display. Start by going to Tools >
Preferences... > File Handling > Converters, highlight the EPS -> PNG
converter, and look at the command in the "Converter:" box. Using a
command window, make sure that program is installed and executes. If
that checks out, repeat for the PDF (graphics) -> EPS converter.


Hi!

I just checked this now. The EPS -> PNG converter command is "magick $$i 
$$o" and it executes fine from command line. The PDF (graphics) -> EPS 
converter is "pdftops -eps -f 1 -l 1 $$i $$o" and it also works from 
command line.


If the PNG -> EPS converter command is "convert $$i $$o", there was a
second issue back when I used Windows that might still be in play. (I'm
not sure, as I switched off Windows a long time ago.) IIRC, Windows had
a "convert" program that did something unrelated to graphics.


I can't find any PNG -> EPS converter in my file handling preferences at 
all. Is this converter necessary? If you meant EPS -> PNG in the above 
section there was the "magick" command which worked as explained. In 
addition to the LyX-installed imagemagick I also do have a stand alone 
copy of ImageMagick installed.


The "convert" command indeed calls the windows command for converting 
filesystems, but I can't find any reference to "convert" in the 
preferences. Maybe "magick" calls something?


The one

used by LyX for image converges is part of ImageMagick. So you not only
need to verify that ImageMagick is properly installed, you also need to
verify that the ImageMagick convert program appears ahead of the Windows
convert program on the system command path. If not, I think you can
remedy it by putting the ImageMagick directory in Tools > Preferences...

Paths > PATH prefix. (Back in my day, I see to recall having to edit

the system command path, which is not too hard.)


ImageMagick is in the paths prefix. Have to check the system command 
path still.

In LyX, you cannot split cells, only fusion columns. So, AFAIK, you
cannot do what you want within LyX, quite bad I admit. I guess you can
do it using ERT of course.

I think multi-column (merge cells) can be used to create that table.
Use two columns, then you merge two horizontal cells.


You can only merge _vertical_ cells AFAICS (tested in 1.6).

Hi!

I have a lengthy (300 p) humanistic manuscript and have enabled 
\usepackage[osf]mathpazo as to get oldstyle figures across the whole 
document. However, I also have 50+ tables and if I've understood 
correctly one should not use oldstylenums except in the main text 
body. Is there any way to exclude these table floats from the generic 
option. I could of course mark every number in every table float as 
math mode but that would seem to be a lengthy operation, as would 
indeed be replacing all numbers in the text with ERT. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, LyX doesn't have options for turning
oldstyle on/off for pieces of text - only for the whole document.
At least if you use version 1.5.
Various solutions:

1. Use ERT everywhere - but too much work.

2. Redefine the latex tabular environment so that it issues the
   no oldstyle command in addition to everything else it does.
   Then all tables comes out without oldstyle numbers.
   I don't know if this is feasible though.

Version 1.5 may offer a solution if you're willing to
create a custom layout file. Understanding layout files is
some work, but gives these options:

3. Make a charstyle for not oldstyle numbers.  You can then mark
   anything and apply this style - the numbers marked will no
   longer be old-style.  Easier than converting to math, because
   you can (probably) mark whole tables instead of hunting for
   each little number. You can also use this charstyle for numbers
   in uppercase headings. (Oldstyle numbers are  lowercase,
   non-oldstyle numbers are uppercase numbers.
   So a number in uppercase text should not be oldstyle.)

4. For older versions of LyX, make a paragraph style (instead of a
   charstyle) for standard, but not oldstyle numbers.
   Very much like alternative 3, except that it always works on
   whole paragraphs.  But a table is usually in a paragraph
   of its own anyway, so not much of a problem here.
   You can then change the paragraph type for each table.

I've concluded that this must have something to do with me upgrading my

Ok, it was the apalike.sty from MikTeX 2.5 that did not function. 
Replaced it and all is well.

Does anybody know, what could be the reason for that?

If I remeber correctly Miktex needs the argument compat2 in LyX:s 
Layout-Document-Options to give the margins the same dimensions as texmf 
does. Does that help

I renamed temporary my cygwin directory to something else so the qt lyx

I guess there is some problem with my path since renaming the cywin

Shortening down TOC

2003-07-10 Thread Niklas Huldén
Hi!

Is there any way to shorten down a TOC which contains loads of 
subsubsections
in an oldfashioned way like this:

Chapter 1..1
Section 1.12
  Subsection 1.1.1.3
   Coins 4, Groins 5, Fever 7,
   Wars 8, Platypus 11
Subsection 1.212

  and so on

I have studied the tocloft package but i cant find a solution there.
I know I could manipulate the .toc-file by hand, but then I would have
to change all the pagenumbers also :(

many thanks!

 Try to place the cursor immediately before the table, and press
 Shift-CursorRight. This marks the whole table, at least in 1.1.6pre3.
 Cut and paste as usual.
 
 If this does not work, move the cursor to the first character after the
 table while keeping Shift pressed.
 
If your table is in a float you can also copy the table by clicking on
the caption, minimizing (or closing) the float. Then select and copy the
remaining "tab"-mark as usual, maximize or open the float on the new
place.
