Mario,

Perhaps you are, but we need you to be more specific. You write about
pasting LaTeX code into a LyX document. This can be two things:

1) You want to enter a LaTeX command, e.g., \hspace{1.5cm} in an ERT box
with a red border.

2) You are inserting multiple lines of text that are to be printed verbatim
using the LyX-code environment.

If you are referring to 1 above, please provide a minimal working example of
what you've done, the output that produces, and what you want that's
different.

HTH,

Riki,

Of course.


I use JabRef's push function sometimes and the dialog other times, which I
typically access as Alt-I + C. You can navigate around that dialog, too,
with the keyboard, pretty easily.


I may look at the dialog and learn what it offers. So far having JabRef push
the citation to the document has met all my needs.

Thanks and stay well,

Doug,

I've never used that dialog; wasn't aware of its existance. I've been using
JabRef for many years. It used to have a LyX icon on the icon bar along the top
which would insert the selected document in the lyx document where the
cursor is located. Now I use Ctrl-L which invokes Tool -> Push entries to
external applications (LyX/Kile).

As a touch-typist I prefer to use the keyboard as much as possible (and CLI
over GUI) so I am unfamiliar with many menu items offered by applications.

Doug,

I suppose that if you're collaborating with others on a document you'd want
a document-specific bibliography. On the other hand, there's no harm in
using a single bibliography, even with collaborators.


But it seems that when you use the Jabref external link you have to give
up using the Lyx-Citation dialog? When you say "insertion in the text" do
you mean the LYX text?


I'm not sure I understand, but assuming I do I'll answer your questions with
"no" and "yes."

Attached is a sample of a JabRef-inserted citation in the LyX text. I can

As you can see, the citation is inserted in the text and the full reference

Wolfgang,

What tool do you use to manage your references?

Why do you have multiple bibliographies?

Here, I use JabRef for all my references (981 of 'em). When I want to cite
one in a document (such as the book I'm writing), I select it and use
JabRef's external link to insert the citation in the text and the full
reference in the bibliography.

Would something like this work for you?

suggest that it is a non-conservative constituent of ground water.
Alachlor and dieldrin amounts were extremely low, being less than
0.1 ug/liter in all but one water sample which was taken from a well

Ah, I missed that.

The best way to do this would be to define a new page style and then use it. 
This is not something for which LyX has full native support. Have a look at 
the documentation for the fancyhdr package.


I've used fancyhdr before -- a long time ago. I think that KOMA-Script also
has some solutions for this. I'll also look at the LaTeX guide and see if
there's a different package that would do it.

Biblatex issues

2021-03-25 Thread Rich Shepard

It's been a long time since I last wrote a document with a bibliography. I
have compilation issues on this one and cannot find a saved thread with the
solution.

I switched from bibtex to biblatex last year (or earlier) and want to use
the author-date format for citations. Since I upgraded to TeXLive-2020 I may
have lost changes that worked.

A MWE is attached (without the entire JabRef bibliography) as well as the
full error log. I don't understand why I'm getting errors when I try to
compile the file with pdflatex, yet the PDF is produced.

I'm confused.

Parent-child book questions

2021-03-25 Thread Rich Shepard

I'm writing a book (KOMA-Script book class) which I expect to be long so I
want to learn how to use the Parent-Child multi-source documents capabilities
of LyX. In the parent doc I've set each child to have its own bibliography
(references). I want a single index, but that's well in the future.

Reading in the Embedded Objects help manual (Sec 7.2) that, "To be able to
work on child documents without the need to open their master, specify in
the child document the master in the menu
Document->Settings->Document->Class. This master document will then be used
in the background by LyX when you edit the child document.", I tried to do
this. But, I cannot locate the parent document in the combo box and don't
know how to have LyX find the file in the "Local Layout" widget.

The source directory had the parent and child *.lyx files. There's also an
images/ subdirectory in which images for the child documents will be placed.
When I open the "Local Layout" widget I see only the images subdirectory.
When I click on that directory's parent and select the parent file's
directory the .lyx file is not displayed, only the images/ subdirectory.

What have I missed?

On another issue, I want to add the book's title and copyright in the footer
of each chapter's title page so they can be separately distributed. Can I
remove the footnote indicator on the chapter title and the number in the
footer for this?

I'm confident I'll have more questions as I learn this new way to create a
book.

Rich

Setting pointer color

2021-03-24 Thread Rich Shepard

Running lyx-2.3.6.1 on Slackware64-14.2.

When the trackball/mouse pointer (a thin 'I') is on the last modified text
position (the emacs 'point') its color is red. But, when it's being moved
its color is black.

Quite often my eyeballs (with many millions of miles on them) lose track of
the moving pointer's position. Is there a way to change the color of the
moving pointer to something other than that thin black 'I' so it isn't lost
among all the black text?

Increase base font size

2021-03-09 Thread Rich Shepard

Using lyx-2.3.6.1 and KOMA-Script Article class. I'm preparing speaker's
notes for a forthcoming video presentation and I want the body text larger
than 12pt. In Settings->Fonts the choice is limited to 12pt.

What's the LaTeX for changing paperfontsize 12 to paperfontsize 14? Is it

I can try that. Since I switched from Red Hat-7 to Slackware-8.0 in 2003
I've built Lyx using the SlackBuild script (copy attached.) And it's always
worked flawlessly for me ... until earlier this week when I inadvertently
removed all the SBo packages while upgrading the distribution (and spent the
rest of the week re-building and re-installing them).

I should mention that the SlackBuild script worked fine last month in the
upgrade from 2.6.3 to 2.6.3.1. That's why I'm puzzled it now fails. Same
Qt4 and Qt5/PyQt5 versions as then.

And long ago I switched from writing tools for me in C to Python so I'm 20
years out of data on all the different C/C++ compilers now out there.

I just discovered this when I was checking settings against another doc.
Each time I clicked the tab to switch docs the tab on the selected one

when selected it blanks.

Setting LyX window font size

2021-01-27 Thread Rich Shepard

Running lyx-2.3.6.1 on Slackware-14.2/x86_64 with Xfce4-4.12.1. This upgrade
changed the font size on the window's menu, outline panel, and other
non-text-body elements. They're now too small for me to comfortably read.
See attached screenshot.

Using Preferences -> Display I can set the document typeface, stroke, and
size. But I cannot find where to change the window decorations. And using
the Xfce4 Settings -> Display I can change the font size of other
applications (e.g., GnuCash) but not the LyX window.

I'm assuming that LyX uses Qt5 as the application framework in C++ and I'm
having difficulties finding how I can change the Qt5 font size in this
application.

All ideas on how to increase the font size on the frame surrounding the
writing area are solicited.

While the sub-minor upgrade to .1 apparently had no benefits for me I
allowed my weekly SlackBuilds.org upgrades to install it. Today I fired it

Second, while I was looking in the Tools menu I selected the classic.ui
style, entered a title for a paper I need to write, and now no menu displays
any items; they all display a one-line message window, "No Action Defined!".
Huh?

Looking in ~/.lyx/lyxrc I don't see anything changed. The bind file is still

The "moc" binary that you have in the path is from Qt 4.8.7, and the Qt 
library is from a different version.


JMarc,

I had no idea what the 'moc' binary was.

Here are installed both qt-4.8.7-x86_64-4 and qt5-5.12.8-x86_64-1_SBo. I
thought some installed packages need version 4. Checking now with hoorex

nothing installed dependent on qt4.

Removing that package lyx-2.3.6 is now building.

Thanks very much.

Lyx-2.3.6 build failure

2020-11-30 Thread Rich Shepard

Somehow, at some time since 3.5.3.2 was released I managed to lose by lyx
build directory on my Slackware-14.2/x86_64 workstation. I restored it and
downloaded lyx-2.3.6.tar.xz but trying to build it fails when a 'build-all'
command cannot be found.

The complete output is attached.

I've looked at it (briefly) and don't see why it failed. I expect one of you
devs will immediately spot the problem and let me know how to fix it.

LyX translates an ellipsis (entered with Alt + . or via the Insert menu)

same is true of \textellipsis.


Paul,

Interesting. Yes, \ldot was a typo as an ellipsis has three dots.

I didn't use the menu or Alt-.; I automatically open an ERT box (and still
strongly dislike that name) and type the command. But \textellipsis, \ldots,
and \ellipsis all produced the same compilation error, built-in or as a
loaded module.

Just now I killed the ERT box and used alt-. which displayed the ellipsis
and was accepted by pdflatex.

This leads to my suggestion that the next release of LyX accept the ERT
commands as well as the keyboard chord and the menu item. Some older foggies
like me are touch-typists and still enter LaTeX commands directly. Doesn't
seem to me that allowing these would take anything away.

Thanks for the solution,

Biblatex has many fields that BibTeX typically doesn't have, and some

Jürgen,

I noticed the extensive fields in the biblatex doc. My experiences with
references has limited multiple names to authors and editors. I've always
used 'and' between them which is why I was puzzled that JabRef's integrity
check displayed semi-colons in that field.


Biblatex expects normal dash {260-269}, which will be automatically
transfered to en-dash (or whatever the style wants) in output. {260--269}
in input works as well, but this won't be tranferred if the style requires
a different separator.


Okay. I've always used the double hyphen to tell LaTeX it should be an
en-dash. Apparently JabRef was confused with this. Shrug. I won't let this
application do an integrity check; if I see something wrong with how a
reference is listed I'll fix it then.

Thanks very much for the lesson.

Changing from bibtex to biblatex

2020-09-17 Thread Rich Shepard

I reconfigured LyX to use biblatex rather than bibtex. Are there any
differences in the structure of the *.bib file between the two?

For the time being I'm sticking with JabRef-5.1 because I've been using it
for years and I need to work with the contents rather than learning a new
tool. And, I've learned that Ocular allows me to copy and paste from PDF-1.7
docs while the installed versions of xpdf and other PDF viewers won't.

Cleaning up the .bib file JabRef shows some duplicates and I've cut those
out. But, when I do an integrity check it shows errors that are not in the
.bib file itself.

Example: JabRef shows a list of authors with names separated by semi-colons
Aazami, J.;Sari, A.E.; ... while the .bib file shows {Aazami, J. and Sari, A.E.
and ... JabRef tells me that what it's displaying is not correct bibtex
format. For that same article JabRef says it's missing page numbers but the
.bib file shows pages = {260–-269},

I don't recall seeing anything like this before.

All thoughts welcome,

I've used JabRef for years but 5.x frustrates me to no end. They've lost the
emacs keyboard chords that were present from 1.x through 4.x so to edit an
abstract, for example, I need to use the arrow and Del keys. And, they've
changed the UI so some data entry tabs have their widgets on the left half
of the application window and the entry preview on the right halt. But,
accessing the right-hand column of the data entry widgets must be done blind
because that half window cannot be expanded to the right. Serious PITA. Yes,
I've filed bug issues on both but nothing's been fixed. I've tried using
KDE's bibliography tool but that was equally frustrating. And Zotero doesn't
use bibtex.

Since I'm not a full-time researcher I don't need to share the bibiography
with collaborators and I will not store it somewhere in the cloud; my data,
my network. I also don't particularly care for a GUI; text-based works for
me since that's how I do most of my work (except when using LyX).

I've about 1,200 books and PDFs in the bibtex database and other than
entering new documents I want to search primarily by keywords, secondarily
by authors.

I found the tool, now I need to learn the proper command line. Turns out
that ffmpeg, the commplete video/audio toolbox can change ratios and, I
presume, resolutions. So, off I go to figure out ffmpeg.

The aim is, to produce a second column with the hours-minutes in decimals, 
something like $1/60.


Wolfgang,

Oh. I'd use awk; a one-line script. Off the top of my head:

#!/usr/bin/gawk

BEGIN { FS=OFS=":" } { print $1 $2, $1 $2/60 }

Almost certainly needs fine tuning. :-)

Beamer presentation PDF resolution

2020-06-17 Thread Rich Shepard

I've used LyX (and LaTeX before this) for a very long time to prepare the
slides (visuals) for presentations. They're always produced in a 4:3
resolution ratio and that's how both xpdf and mupdf display them. This works
fine for in-person presentations projected on a screen by an lcd projector.

However, videos for uploading to YouTube need to be in a 16:9 wide screen
ratio. How can I set the PDF output to a 16:9 ratio using either 1920x1080
or 1280x720 resolution?

TIA,

Wolfgang,

Divide the minutes by 60. For example, 30. / 60. = 0.5 and 32. / 60. = 0.53
Then add them to the hours. It's similar to changing degrees-minutes-seconds
to decimal degrees.

You can use python for this on the command line.

I discovered out how I entered the same figure twice: I had entered it last

I entered it again.

Removing the second figure float solved the problem. As if I needed a

Same figure entered twice

2020-06-16 Thread Rich Shepard

I've no idea how I managed to enter the same figure twice, but I did.

LyX finds the same place when I search for both Figure 1 and Figure 2 using
the Navigate -> Figures menu.

Looking at the .lyx file in emacs I think the following encompasses both
instances:

\begin_layout Standard
The entity-relationship (E-R) diagram (Figure 
\begin_inset CommandInset ref

LatexCommand ref
reference "fig: e-r diagram"
plural "false"
caps "false"
noprefix "false"

\end_inset

)
\begin_inset Float figure
wide false
sideways false
status collapsed

\begin_layout Plain Layout
\align center
\begin_inset CommandInset ref
LatexCommand ref
reference "fig: E-R diagram"
plural "false"
caps "false"
noprefix "false"

\end_inset


\begin_inset Graphics

BoundingBox 60bp 60bp 685bp 815bp

\end_inset


\end_layout


\begin_layout Plain Layout
\begin_inset Caption Standard

\begin_layout Plain Layout
\begin_inset CommandInset label
LatexCommand label
name "fig: E-R diagram"

\end_inset

The OpenEDMS E-R diagram.
 Each table stores observations, the results of data collection (sampling)
 events for each category of data.
 The categories do not depend on each other except that all observations
 are related to a location in the Sites table.
 The weather data are independent of the other data because weather stations
 frequently are separate from biological, chemical, and physical data.
\end_layout

\end_inset


\end_layout

How do I remove one and leave the other? It doesn't matter to me which label
is left; they're the same figure and the same caption.

I suppose I could just drop the float and re-create it but I'm not sure that 
would
lose both of them.

Beamer class: question and comment

2020-05-16 Thread Rich Shepard

I hope you're all healthy, productive, and safe and you stay this way.

Question:

After years of beamer presentations with different looks I've decided on one
that I'll use for all future presentations. How do I save this format and
structure (stripped of presentation-specific content) as a default template
for all my future beamer documents?

Comment:

A just-completed presentation has 6 images in it. The first two share their
frames with text so I used columns and two individual columns per frame with
the image on the left and the text on the right. This worked just fine.

But, the next 4 images are large and each occupies an entire frame by
itself. I inserted the first one, tweaked the size and position, and used
alt-p/shift-enter to create a new frame environment. But, nothing happened;
no new frame. I looked in the beamer manual but the word 'image' appears
only once and in reference to using overlays.

After much futzing I discovered a solution. When I defined a new frame
environment I inserted an itemize environment, then immediately created a
new, following frame. With the latter patiently waiting I inserted the image
in the first new frame, set its size and position, then moved to the next
frame that was created before inserting the image.

I hesitate to call this a bug because I don't know if there's a way I've
missed to insert only an image in a frame then create a new frame after that
other than what I did.

Regards,

Rich

Beamer document: Undefined control sequence

2020-04-10 Thread Rich Shepard

I copied a .lyx beamer class file to a new name and am modifying the copy
for a different presentation. (I did this because I like the layout in the
original and copying is a quick way to get that in the new document.)

However, when I compile it (pdflatex) using Ctrl-h an error box displays an
undefined control sequence in \makebeamertitle only the copied file, not the
original. Yet, the .pdf file is produced and displays. A mwe.lyx is
attached.

While I close the error box and go on, I'd like to understand what broke in
the copy so I can fix it.

I hope you're all healthy -- and stay that way -- and coping with the

The direct answer to your questrion is both yes and no.

For some reason that entry did not have a "year" field, only the "date"

added the year and now it shows up.

Bibliography missing publication date.

The bibtex source includes date = {1986}. The citation is (Cronshey et al.
1986), but the reference is,
Cronshey, R., McCuen, R.H., Miller, N., Rawls, W., Robbins, S., & Woodward,

No date. Is this because I don't have the proper LyX file converter
selected? I'm puzzled.

Running lyx-2.3.4.3-x86_64 on Slackware-14.2/x86_64.

from JabRef-5.1.dev. The bibliography style is APA, but when I try to format

Prior lyx versions would show a selection of citation formats; e.g., (Author

I use the KOMA-Script classes, not memoir, but I offer information related

There's a tool called pdfjam that allows a pdf document to be resized to
different paper sizes (among other tweaks.) I learned of it when printed web

Off topic but perhaps useful.

Jul 2013). I don't know that I ever used it because I either did not know
how or I forgot. I think this will accommodate adding the EIN.

I just updated the scrguien PDF to the 2019-10-10 version and will read
Section 4.21. I may be back with specific questions for you.

Thanks very much.

Best regards,

Rich

KOMA-Script letter 2 for invoices

2020-01-31 Thread Rich Shepard

I use the KOMA-Script letter 2 for my client invoices. I want to add the EIN
(Employer Indentification Number; the business equivalent of a Social
Security Number for people). I've not found an environment that allows me to
put the EIN between the logo and the date, on the right side of the text
area.

Suggestions are needed.

TIA,

Rich

Re: Table and longtable: alternate color rows [RESOLVED]

I removed the alternate row coloring which I thought would make the long
table more readable because it's too difficult to get it right.

The floating table above has the header line (with wrapped cells) as two
lines, grey and white and with a separator line. There are no separator
lines above and below the 2-line column header row.


I removed all lines in the preamble associated with non-longtables but it
still has alternate color rows.
