Self-contained lyx documents

2011-04-27 Thread Niko Schwarz
Hi guys,

I managed to write an article in lyx in sig-alternate style. I had to
copy the class into my tex installation, run texhash, install some
layout into ~/Library/Application Support/LyX-2.0/layouts. And that's
fine. And then my coworker wanted to see what I'd done, so I sent him
the directory. And now he had to repeat all of my steps.

Guys, I don't mind some hassle to use non-standard classes in my
document. But it makes a huge difference to me if the hassle occurs
for me only (that's fine), or for every coworker (that isn't!).

Please, can't you encapsulate all of the hassle into lyx modules, and
allow lyx modules that are in the same directory as the lyx file? Or
better yet: inside the lyx file?

Niko

Having trouble importing latex to lyx

2011-01-29 Thread Niko Schwarz
Hi,

I'm using the import function of lyx to import latex to lyx. With some
latex file, this works fine, but one file can't be imported,
reporting: stammt von einer älteren Lyx-Version, aber das
lyx2lyx-Skript konnte das Dokument nicht konvertieren.

I tried Lyx 1.6.8 and Lyx 2.0 beta 3.

Rename algorithm to program listing – How to get my program listings into my article?

2011-01-26 Thread Niko Schwarz
Hi, I'm using LyX with the springer LNCS article class. In my previous
work, all the program listings I had to write could reasonably well be
called algorithms, so I used the algorithm class in a float. This
time, they aren't really algorithms, they're just program listings.
So, I'd the surrounding float to be called program listing, not
algorithm.

What to do?

Re: Ninja mode

2010-02-25 Thread Niko Schwarz
Well, yea. So what? It doesn't need to work all the time. If the Lyx
compile button doesn't work anymore, but the make script still runs,
that's good enough for me.

By the way, the lyx importer is great. I imported several docuents
which I consider quite complex,  and sometimes after a few
adaptations, often right away, they compile in lyx. Export is great,
too. So what's the problem? :)

Ninja mode

2010-02-22 Thread Niko Schwarz
Hi y'all,

what helped popularize git in my research group was undoubtably to
ninja into git using git-svn, that is: people like I could switch from
svn to git, and it wouldn't force others to change their workflows.

I find it quite a pity that lyx has no ninja mode. That is: a mode of
lyx that would allow me to change a versioned latex document from
within lyx, which stores its meta information in a separate .lyxextra
file, but exports itself constantly to the shared .tex file, such that
the .tex file and lyx are always in sync.

I know I could import and export manually all the time, and
conceptually, that would (seriously!) be good enough for me. But it's
too much pressing buttons  to be productive. Does anyone do it that
way?

How do you ninja lyx into your research groups?

Cheers,

Niko

Opening the same file twice

when I open the same file twice in lyx, it behaves very strangely. It

Hello!

How do you type things like e.g. in lyx? If you do not take special
care, it is translated to latex merely as e.g. and therefore creates
a giant space after the abbreviation. How to avoid that?

tables numbered chapter-wise

2009-04-19 Thread Niko Schwarz

Hello,

using ams-book, the tables i use are numbered sequentielly PER  
CHAPTER. the result is that i have three tables all called "Table 1".  
How do I change that?

Re: tables numbered chapter-wise

2009-04-19 Thread Niko Schwarz
the ccaption package says, i should do this:

\makeatletter

\...@removefromreset{table}{chapter}

\renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{table}}

\makeatother


however, when i put it into the preamble, latex complains that
Undefined control sequence.

 \...@removefromreset

{table}{chapter}

The control sequence at the end of the top line

of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have

misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct

spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,

and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

 when I have the list of algorithms created,

\listof{algorithm}{List of Algorithms},


then latex says this:


TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000].


does anyone have an idea? thanks,

aha! turns out that i am the biggest latex-guru of all times.

\usepackage{remreset}

\usepackage{ccaption}

\...@removefromreset{table}{chapter}

\renewcommand{\thetable}{\arabic{table}}


this does the trick!

Ok, maybe I didn't make myself clear: you can have self-contained archives
with no compression at all on OSX. It works like this: you make a directory
and in that directory you dump a special file that tells finder to display
the directory as a package.

But from the command line, it is still a directory. And in finder, you can
look into the package by choosing Show Package Contents from the pop up
menu.

Now Pages files for example come as such packages, you can copy that
directory around, send it through email (yea, email clients handle it
surprisingly well), and it still works.

Now, other operating systems see a directory and not a package. People using
something other than OSX would have to be reminded to copy the directory
around the .lyx file around, which would be managed by lyx.

The file would still be accessible, no performance penalty, but complete
send-aroundability, and while it might feel a little alien on other OS's, on
OSX it's the standard way to do such things, so OSX users will cheer.

Re: list of figures

2009-04-13 Thread Niko Schwarz
hmm. then i get this error message:

@figur...@dottedtocline{1}{1.5em}{2.3em}}

 Your command was ignored.

Type I   to replace it with another command,

or  to continue without it.

I don't think so. Firstly, I am on OSX and secondly, I haven't changed
anything about the graphics files recently.
 I think it's strange. I dropbox collect recent versions, and even after
going 3 hours back in time, it won't compile, then with another strange
error message: Paragraph ended before \...@setref@link was complete.
Very weird.

If I go 7 hours back in time, I get this error: Paragraph ended before

I know that this file used to compile because I have the pdf. Something
outside of my document is causing this failure, I think, however the only 2
things I changed were the bibliography and the document. Removing the
bibliography from the document does not fix the issue.

Also, last time I closed lyx it complained that it could not remove some
temporary directory.

This might all be unrelated, but could it be relevant? What should I be

 The error is right there, but why you're getting it I don't know. It looks
 as if there's a filename there that is mangled for some reason. Have a look
 at the tex file itself and see if you can figure out what's happened.

I'm going nuts. If I add the ERT \end{document} right as the first thing all

However, if I cut everything and write hi into the document, it compiles.

Re: my file does not compile to pdf anymore

2009-04-07 Thread Niko Schwarz
Ok, I discovered something. Only the version I sent you is broken. Going one
version back, QUITTING LYX and restarting lyx, then loading the older
version – works fine. Apparantly the last save broke something that takes
lyx with it. It is not just my machine, my other Mac cannot compile the last
version, either.
So, with the reverted version I can keep working. I can simply redo the last
work, it is only like 10 minutes.

If you want to debug what went wrong there, please don't hesitate asking me
for whatever I can offer.

alright, i know what happened. I was adding page numbers to a citation, the
page numbers were pp.485–488, where the hyphen is some strange uni-code
