Re: Turning-off a command from a layout file?

I'm out of ideas that would avoid editing the module. Personally, I would
copy the module and .inc files to my local layout directory, give them
different names, and edit out the Problem style. That way, both the original
and hacked modules would appear in the module list, and I could use the
ordinary version for any other document class but select the hacked version
for the new document class.

Re: Strange behaviour of initials module aka drop-caps

2013-09-01 Thread Paul Rubin
Your works file works for me, although I'm missing one of the modules you
loaded (short-inset-names), which apparently is not critical.

Your doesn't work file had two problems when I tried to fix. The first was
that it had no title (I added one). The second was that the environment
where you wanted the drop cap was Standard as opposed to Initial. I
changed the environment to Initial, put the leading 'A' in the short title
inset (which works for Initial but makes no sense for a standard
environment, which takes no options) and it worked fine.

Re: Font problem in MikTeX 2.9

2013-08-05 Thread Paul Rubin
Two things come to mind. First, open a DOS window and run the command

kpsewhich ecsi.mf

It should tell you where the ecsi font source code is installed (probably in
the jknappen package). If you get a blank line as the response, you need to
install a package containing the font.

If the font is installed, try opening the MiKTeX settings application and
clicking the update formats button. I vaguely recall one or two occasions
where installation or update of packages through the package manager somehow
bollixed the formats, leading to font errors (on installed fonts); updating
formats seemed to fix it.

I'm not sure what happened with my previous reply; it seems to be

Short of manually inserting page breaks (and adjusting them whenever the
text changes), I do not think it is possible to do what you want and be
certain that you get the desired result. You can try using \FloatBarrier
from the placeins package
(http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Floats,_Figures_and_Captions#Keeping_floats_in_their_place).
I have no experience with it, but I suspect that it will disrupt the

Now type \{, which should create a pair of braces surrounding an inset, and
type the background color name (e.g., cyan) inside. The color name will look

 I know that e.g. XeTeX silently drobs missing characters, as in some cases

 If the result depends on the viewer, there might be problems with the
 character composition. Maybe this could be solved by using a font-package

This is more a matter of curiosity than urgency.  I do most of my work in PDF
and use DVI primarily for quick checks while writing (since it seems a bit

On Windows XP, look in C:\Documents and Settings\your id\Application Data and
delete any folders with 'Lyx' or 'Miktex' in their names.  Note that this will
delete any customized layouts, keyboard bindings etc. you might have stored for
LyX.  If you have any such things, it would be prudent to archive copies first.

Also look in C:\Documents and Settings\your id\Local Settings\Application Data
for MikTeX directories.  (LyX stores nothing there, but I think MiKTeX does.)

Repeat this above with All Users in place of your id to catch anything
stored if either LyX of MiKTeX was installed for all users.

In LyX, could Tools  Preferences  Paths  PATH prefix be pointing to the old
version?

It would be a good idea to export a file to LaTeX (pdflatex), then run pdflatex
against it in a DOS window.  That might help pin down whether there are problems
with your LaTeX (MiKTeX?) distribution.
