Spell Check Does Not Work in 1.2.1 RH 8.0

2002-12-06 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
I reported this problem a few days ago but have not been able to resolve 
it. I'm running LyX 1.2.1 on two different Intel PCs running RH 8.0. RH 
8.0 appears to use aspell and not ispell but has some sort of 
compatibility script. I type the following commands and get the same 
exact response on both systems:

Home:
[chippy@chippy chippy]$ whereis ispell
ispell: /usr/bin/ispell
[chippy@chippy chippy]$ ispell -v
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell .33.7.1 alpha)

Work:
[lrb0r22@rbilonick lrb0r22]$ whereis ispell
ispell: /usr/bin/ispell
[lrb0r22@rbilonick lrb0r22]$ ispell -v
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell .33.7.1 alpha)
[lrb0r22@rbilonick lrb0r22]$

Yet the spell check does not work on my Home system. When I installed RH 
8.0 on my home system I did an upgrade. When I installed RH 8.0 on my 
work system I had to do a new install (due to some install problems). 
Yet the spell check works as expected on the Work system but not the 
Home system. LyX is configured identially on the two systems.

I tried changing the preferences in LyX on the Home system. I tried 
changing the preferences to aspell. Spell check never works on the Home 
systme.

I don't know what else to try.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rick B.

P. S. Here is the compatibility script:

[lrb0r22@rbilonick lrb0r22]$ cat /usr/bin/ispell

This is a much more serious problem because I need to be able to print

If it's a postscript printer, then there is probably some 
non-standard/printer-incompatible postscript in your output --- this is why 
the latest is not always the greatest. Star/OpenOffice have serious problems 
here.

With latex, I found that ps printers (HP lasers) can't handle some compressed 
image formats (png, jpeg) that have been converted to eps (with ImageMagik 
convert or the Gimp). So I always convert images to xpm before converting 
to eps.

This is not a printer problem. This appears to be a LyX and/or 
ghostscript problem. Either ghostscript has a bug or LyX is not 
producing correct postscript. Here is what ghostscript does with the

I'm not complaining. It's not a big problem. I'm just glad we know what 
the problem is. My only point to the person suggesting changing the file

May I check your support contract, please?

PS: Renaming is probably a one-liner in e.g. perl. If you tell me what
exactly you want to have changed I might even tell you what it could look
like.

 

Nothing I said here was a complaint about LyX. My point was that 
renaming files becuase of a problem in LyX is not a reasonable solution. 
Especially when the problem itself is not a big deal. My main goal was 
to understand what was causing the problem. Now that I know the source 
of the problem (and that it's not something to do especially with R or 
RH 8.0, etc.), I can wait for a fix. If a fix never comes I'm in no 
position to complain.

One other thing, if you recently updated or changed configuration of

Are you sure that it is really an eps file, and not a ps one renamed as
eps?

The problem eps file is very similar to the eps graph on the page before 
and the eps graph on the page after. All were created using the 
postscript function in R with arguments required to produce and eps 
(and not just ps) file. Here are the first few lines. I would be happy 
to upload the entire eps file if someone wants to try it.

I could try and see if it crashes for me if you'd like, but if it's big 
and you can't just send a link to it, perhaps you'd better just send it 
in a private mail?

If I remember correctly, it crashed if you inserted it in a .lyx-file and 
try to view it with gv?

/Christian

 

Now of course when I put the problem file in a separate LyX document, it 
produces a postscript view and a pdf view. The large document, however, 
still will not print or view page 9. I can send you the problem eps but, 
unfortunately,  I can't send the 20 page LyX document. The problem 
appears to be in the larger LyX document and not the eps file itself. 
I'm using the lscape package (in the preamble) with 
\begin{landscape} and \end{landscape} around the eps file(s). If I 
remove  this, however, the problem eps still won't print or view.

Re: New More Serious Problems with 1.2.1 - Solved!

2002-11-19 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
OK, I elimanted the unnecessary text.

It's not the fonts nor is it the eps file itself. The LyX code written 
by LyX appears to be incorrect.

I changed the LyX code so that all three graphs have the same specs. I 
tried first to do this using LyX and it's graph menus. For some reason, 
LyX would not change the specs directly. So I went in by hand and 
edited them. Now I can view and print in both ps and pdf. I'm not sure 
why the difference caused a Postscript error nor why LyX would not 
change them via it's menus.


I changed:

Could you check whether there is a difference in the intermediate .tex
(LyX - pdf goes through .tex, you could obtain the file by exporting to
LaTeX)

Here is the relevant part of the tex code from both files. The only 
difference I see is the filename specification.

then this is your problem. It is the only change LaTeX parameter and
says that your graphics gets a width of the actuell column (line).
I suppose, that your image is too big for the page, so it does not work
without this parameter. Nevertheless this width=100% of columnwidth
can be set from inside the graphic gui.

Herbert




I agree and the first thing I tried to do was to use the GUI in LyX to 
change the specs to the same as the other eps graphs that would print. 
Yet, when I checked the code, the code was not changed and still would 
not view or print. I had to go in manually and edit the LyX code directly.

I did some presentations with LyX and FoilTeX, which worked ok for simple

enough for me anyway.

At this URL you can find my latest presentation created with LyX/Prosper

It's there both in .lyx-format and in .pdf, so you can see both what it

I really like foiltex. I used it for all my overheads. It's simple and 
to the point. Powerpoint is just a lot of chart junk, IMO. If you don't 
really have something to present, use Powerpoint. For serious work, I 
would highly recomment foiltex.

If it's a postscript printer, then there is probably some 
non-standard/printer-incompatible postscript in your output --- this is why 
the latest is not always the greatest. Star/OpenOffice have serious problems 
here.

With latex, I found that ps printers (HP lasers) can't handle some compressed 
image formats (png, jpeg) that have been converted to eps (with ImageMagik 
convert or the Gimp). So I always convert images to xpm before converting 
to eps.

This is not a printer problem. This appears to be a LyX and/or

Jean-Marc,

I'm not complaining. It's not a big problem. I'm just glad we know what 
the problem is. My only point to the person suggesting changing the file 
names is that it's not realistic when there are lots of already created

PS: Renaming is probably a one-liner in e.g. perl. If you tell me what
exactly you want to have changed I might even tell you what it could look
like.

 

Nothing I said here was a complaint about LyX. My point was that 
renaming files becuase of a problem in LyX is not a reasonable solution. 
Especially when the problem itself is not a big deal. My main goal was 
to understand what was causing the problem. Now that I know the source 
of the problem (and that it's not something to do especially with R or 
RH 8.0, etc.), I can wait for a fix. If a fix never comes I'm in no 
position to complain.

Now of course when I put the problem file in a separate LyX document, it

still will not print or view page 9. I can send you the problem eps but,

Re: New More Serious Problems with 1.2.1 - Solved!

2002-11-19 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
OK, I elimanted the unnecessary text.

It's not the fonts nor is it the eps file itself. The LyX code written 
by LyX appears to be incorrect.

I changed the LyX code so that all three graphs have the same specs. I 
tried first to do this using LyX and it's graph menus. For some reason, 
LyX would not change the specs directly. So I went in by hand and 
edited them. Now I can view and print in both ps and pdf. I'm not sure 
why the difference caused a Postscript error nor why LyX would not 
change them via it's menus.


I changed:

then this is your problem. It is the only change LaTeX parameter and

I suppose, that your image is too big for the page, so it does not work
without this parameter. Nevertheless this width=100% of columnwidth
can be set from inside the graphic gui.

I agree and the first thing I tried to do was to use the GUI in LyX to 
change the specs to the same as the other eps graphs that would print. 
Yet, when I checked the code, the code was not changed and still would 
not view or print. I had to go in manually and edit the LyX code directly.

If it's a postscript printer, then there is probably some

the latest is not always the greatest. Star/OpenOffice have serious problems 
here.

With latex, I found that ps printers (HP lasers) can't handle some compressed

"convert" or the Gimp). So I always convert images to xpm before converting

I'm not complaining. It's not a big problem. I'm just glad we know what

Nothing I said here was a complaint about LyX. My point was that 
renaming files becuase of a problem in LyX is not a reasonable solution. 
Especially when the problem itself is not a big deal. My main goal was 
to understand what was causing the problem. Now that I know the source 
of the problem (and that it's not something to do especially with R or

Re: New More Serious Problems with 1.2.1 - Solved!

2002-11-19 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
OK, I elimanted the unnecessary text.

It's not the fonts nor is it the eps file itself. The LyX code written 
by LyX appears to be incorrect.

I changed the LyX code so that all three graphs have the same specs. I 
tried first to do this using LyX and it's graph menus. For some reason, 
LyX would not change the specs directly. So I went in by hand and 
edited them. Now I can view and print in both ps and pdf. I'm not sure 
why the difference caused a Postscript error nor why LyX would not 
change them via it's menus.

then this is your problem. It is the only change LaTeX parameter and

I suppose, that your image is too big for the page, so it does not work
without this parameter. Nevertheless this width=100% of columnwidth
can be set from inside the graphic gui.

I agree and the first thing I tried to do was to use the GUI in LyX to 
change the specs to the same as the other eps graphs that would print. 
Yet, when I checked the code, the code was not changed and still would 
not view or print. I had to go in manually and edit the LyX code directly.

Re: LyX not rendering graphics

Norbert Stribeck wrote:


Since more than a year I have watched the list and the discussion concerning
the problem that LyX renders graphics only sporadically on fast computers - I 
still have the problem and tried the sporadic tips to solve the problem - 
without success for SuSE 7.3 and SuSE 8.0. I have tried to update from 1.1.6 
to 1.2.1, but was unable to compile the sources - because of the cc1plus 
error. Now I have succeeded in part and feel that there might be somebody out 
there knowing the ultimate solution. Here is what I did:

When I asked to check the dependencies, the output was:
# rpm -Uvh lyx-1.2.1-1rh8-xforms089.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
   tetex-xdvi is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   tetex-latex is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   libstdc++.so.5   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(Cwd)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(File::Basename)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(FileHandle)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(lib)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(strict)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1
   perl(vars)   is needed by lyx-1.2.1-1

So I installed 1.2.1 from the binary rpm using --nodeps and supplied both 
libstdc++.so.5.0.0 and libgcc_s.so.1 in /usr/lib (moreover, a symbolic link 
to libstdc++.so.5 was generated and ldconfig was run).

Now LyX 1.2.1 works fine (even xdvi and PDF output), but I do not even see 
graphics sporadically any more. Instead I get an error message in each 
graphics box telling me that the conversion into a display format failed. In 
fact, the message is in German and reads Fehler bei der Konvertierung in ein 
darstellbares Format

Norbert
 

I'm in a similar (sinking) boat. In previous versions of LyX, the 
graphics would almost always render. At most, I would just have to 
restart LyX and rendering would work again. Now that I've installed 
1.2.1 for RH 8.0 and using xforms 0.89 (after upgrading to RH 8.0), 
rendering just does NOT work at all. (Not quite true - it doesn't work 
on eps files created by R.) This is on three Intel PCs all running RH 
8.0 (one is a laptop, the other two are desktop systems). I can't be 
sure the problem doesn't have something to do with Redhat 8.0. Or it may 
be that all the eps files I'm creating come from R (they used to render 
OK and they are eps files.) But I cannot fix it and have seen NOTHING on 
the list that has helped. Someone did suggest turning on debuggind (lyx 
-dbg graphics or lyx -dbg any) but that just tells me the conversion 
doesn't work - even though all the software needed for the conversion is 
readily available on all three systems - I can do it manually - and if 
the conversion wasn't in the preferences I added it. LyX installed 
differently on each system. On at least one I had to even get it to just 
view in PS and PDF. Viewing in HTML gives a screwy message about the 
file name having more than one period and that dvips can't handle it. I 
have to rename the file so there is only one period. Fortunately I guess 
I can live without rendering in LyX just so long as it prints and views OK.

Just for your information, I always use rpm -U --test before actually 
installing the binary. rpm never reported any problem either in test 
mode or when I actually installed the software. There were no conflicts 
and it didn't complain about any missing software - LyX installed (as it 
had in the past) without any error messages or warnings. Everything 
seems to work except for rendering (and viewing on one system) out of 
the box.

At least for me, the rendering error message is in English. I miss the 
days when I could just install a new version of LyX and continue doing 
actual work.

If anyone can explain how to fix this I would certainly appreciate it.

rab I asked the same question. I have three computers (work, home,

rab suggested turning on debugging using lyx -dbg any or lyx -dbg
rab graphics. This shows that there is a problem in converting the
rab eps into pnm (if memory serves). Yet all the necessary software
rab is installed and functioning. LyX is set up to use convert from
rab ImageMagick. I can convert the eps files manually but it just
rab doesn't work in LyX. What is really funny is that if I load a LyX
rab help document, it displays the eps figures.

We are certainly aware of some of these problems, but we have
difficulties to understand what they actually are, and how to solve
them. It seems that various version of various utilities do not mix
well together (notice the precision of this statement %-|). This
problem is one reason why 1.2.2 has not been released yet, although it
contains many important fixes. But, as the maintainer of the 1.2.x
versions, I cannot afford to spend much time on this problem. I just
do what I can. Nevertheless, I hear the complaints on lyx-users :)

rab LyX 1.2.1 seems to have a lot of problems. I used to be able to
rab just install the latest version and everything would basically
rab work. With 1.2.1 now I also have trouble with the previewing of
rab the document. On my home PC, if I logged in as a regular user,
rab the preview worked OK (dvi, ps, and pdf). Yet if I would log in
rab as root, it would not work. 

This happens if latex is not configured properly for the user 'root',
for example. I would be surprised if it was LyX' fault (but anything
can happen...).

rab Another strange problem is viewing as html. I get an error
rab message about the document name if it has more than one ..
rab Something about dvips not working in this case (although it has
rab always worked to do a dvi preview). If I rename the document so
rab it has only one ., then it makes a nice html document and
rab displays it in netscape (4.79) using latex2html. 

This will be fixed in 1.2.2

rab In some situations (I don't remember exactly), I would get an
rab error saying that netscape can't find the server. If I configure
rab LyX to use mozilla, I always get this error. Must have something
rab to do with writine the mozilla command to open a file.

I have a fix for that that has been applied to the development
version, and I will maybe apply it to 1.2.2, since we had many
requests (I try to be conservative as to which fixes go to stable
versions). 

rab I imagine when LyX installs itself (I used an rpm), it looks for
rab helper programs and configures accordingly. But I have all of
rab them and they worked in 1.1.6fix3 so I'm not sure why things are
rab so flaky now. If it was just one machine, I could understand it
rab but not three (all running RH 8.0 - maybe it has to do with RH

New More Serious Problems with 1.2.1 - Partial Printing

2002-11-18 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
I have a 20 page document that I was previously working on using LyX 
1.1.6fix3. It would print just fine - all 20 pages via postscript. If I 
tried to view it through pdf, it would screw up some figure captions. 
Using ps2pdf12 or ps2pdf13 manually rather than using ps2pdf seemed to 
fix the problem. Now in 1.2.1, only the first 8 pages will print - EVEN 
THOUGH all 20 pages show quite nicely in gv. If I try to print directly 
from gv, again only the first 8 pages will print.

I can send the document if someone needs it to help diagnose the problem.

This is a much more serious problem because I need to be able to print 
the documents and make them into pdf's. If I can't do that, there is not 
much point to using LyX.

Why can gv view the entire document but not print it???

When I asked to check the dependencies, the output was:

error: failed dependencies:

libstdc++.so.5.0.0 and libgcc_s.so.1 in /usr/lib (moreover, a symbolic link 
to libstdc++.so.5 was generated and ldconfig was run).

Now LyX 1.2.1 works fine (even xdvi and PDF output), but I do not even see

I'm in a similar (sinking) boat. In previous versions of LyX, the 
graphics would almost always render. At most, I would just have to 
restart LyX and rendering would work again. Now that I've installed 
1.2.1 for RH 8.0 and using xforms 0.89 (after upgrading to RH 8.0), 
rendering just does NOT work at all. (Not quite true - it doesn't work 
on eps files created by R.) This is on three Intel PCs all running RH 
8.0 (one is a laptop, the other two are desktop systems). I can't be 
sure the problem doesn't have something to do with Redhat 8.0. Or it may 
be that all the eps files I'm creating come from R (they used to render 
OK and they are eps files.) But I cannot fix it and have seen NOTHING on 
the list that has helped. Someone did suggest turning on debuggind (lyx 
-dbg graphics or lyx -dbg any) but that just tells me the conversion 
doesn't work - even though all the software needed for the conversion is 
readily available on all three systems - I can do it manually - and if 
the conversion wasn't in the preferences I added it. LyX installed 
differently on each system. On at least one I had to even get it to just 
view in PS and PDF. Viewing in HTML gives a screwy message about the 
file name having more than one period and that dvips can't handle it. I 
have to rename the file so there is only one period. Fortunately I guess 
I can live without rendering in LyX just so long as it prints and views OK.

Just for your information, I always use rpm -U --test before actually 
installing the binary. rpm never reported any problem either in test 
mode or when I actually installed the software. There were no conflicts 
and it didn't complain about any missing software - LyX installed (as it 
had in the past) without any error messages or warnings. Everything 
seems to work except for rendering (and viewing on one system) out of 
the box.

At least for me, the rendering error message is in English. I miss the 
days when I could just install a new version of LyX and continue doing 
actual work.

If anyone can explain how to fix this I would certainly appreciate it.

rab I asked the same question. I have three computers (work, home,

rab suggested turning on debugging using lyx -dbg any or lyx -dbg

rab eps into pnm (if memory serves). Yet all the necessary software
rab is installed and functioning. LyX is set up to use convert from
rab ImageMagick. I can convert the eps files manually but it just
rab doesn't work in LyX. What is really funny is that if I load a LyX
rab help document, it displays the eps figures.

We are certainly aware of some of these problems, but we have
difficulties to understand what they actually are, and how to solve
them. It seems that various version of various utilities do not mix
well together (notice the precision of this statement %-|). This
problem is one reason why 1.2.2 has not been released yet, although it
contains many important fixes. But, as the maintainer of the 1.2.x
versions, I cannot afford to spend much time on this problem. I just
do what I can. Nevertheless, I hear the complaints on lyx-users :)

rab LyX 1.2.1 seems to have a lot of problems. I used to be able to
rab just install the latest version and everything would basically
rab work. With 1.2.1 now I also have trouble with the previewing of
rab the document. On my home PC, if I logged in as a regular user,
rab the preview worked OK (dvi, ps, and pdf). Yet if I would log in
rab as root, it would not work. 

This happens if latex is not configured properly for the user 'root',
for example. I would be surprised if it was LyX' fault (but anything
can happen...).

rab Another strange problem is viewing as html. I get an error
rab message about the document name if it has more than one ..
rab Something about dvips not working in this case (although it has
rab always worked to do a dvi preview). If I rename the document so
rab it has only one ., then it makes a nice html document and
rab displays it in netscape (4.79) using latex2html. 

This will be fixed in 1.2.2

rab In some situations (I don't remember exactly), I would get an
rab error saying that netscape can't find the server. If I configure
rab LyX to use mozilla, I always get this error. Must have something
rab to do with writine the mozilla command to open a file.

I have a fix for that that has been applied to the development
version, and I will maybe apply it to 1.2.2, since we had many
requests (I try to be conservative as to which fixes go to stable
versions). 

rab I imagine when LyX installs itself (I used an rpm), it looks for
rab helper programs and configures accordingly. But I have all of
rab them and they worked in 1.1.6fix3 so I'm not sure why things are
rab so flaky now. If it was just one machine, I could understand it

It works fine for me with 1.2.2cvs, in two different environments:

- redhat 7.1, xforms 0.89.5, ImageMagick 5.2.7, ghostscript 7.0

- tru64 4.0f, xforms 0.88.1, ImageMagick 3.7.8, ghostscript 7.0

Do you still have this problem if the file name does not contain
multiple dots?

JMarc



 

Removing the extra periods allows the graphic to render. I hope this 
will be fixed eventually because it will be very inconvenient not to be 
able to use periods to make the file names more readable. With hundreds 
of files, it is difficult to keep track of them with dos-like names.

Thanks.

New More Serious Problems with 1.2.1 - Partial Printing

2002-11-18 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
I have a 20 page document that I was previously working on using LyX 
1.1.6fix3. It would print just fine - all 20 pages via postscript. If I 
tried to view it through pdf, it would screw up some figure captions. 
Using ps2pdf12 or ps2pdf13 manually rather than using ps2pdf seemed to 
fix the problem. Now in 1.2.1, only the first 8 pages will print - EVEN 
THOUGH all 20 pages show quite nicely in gv. If I try to print directly 
from gv, again only the first 8 pages will print.

I can send the document if someone needs it to help diagnose the problem.

This is a much more serious problem because I need to be able to print 
the documents and make them into pdf's. If I can't do that, there is not 
much point to using LyX.

Why can gv view the entire document but not print it???

Does using pdflatex help? (View PDF (pdflatex) or File/Export/PDF

No, neither work. An error message pops up saying "error while executing

LyX 1.2.1 and R 1.6.1 eps Figures won't display in LyX

2002-11-14 Thread Richard A. Bilonick
I'm running Redhat 8.0 on an I686 pc and using LyX 1.2.1. LyX will 
create a proper Postscript version with  graphs of my document and will 
print OK but does not display the eps images in LyX itself. Every figure 
has Error converting to loadable format. Yet it displays the figures 
in the Help documentation. I use R 1.6.1 to create eps figures using the 
onefile=FALSE, horizontal=FALSE, and paper=special arguments. This 
used to work OK in earlier versions of LyX.

Another problem has to do with ps2pdf reporting for one document in 
particular:

[lrb0r22rbilonick tmp]$ ps2pdf scamp.pm2.5.accuracy.precision.2.ps
Error: /undefinedfilename in (scamp.pm2.5.accuracy.precision.2.ps)

This happens when I try to view the document as a pdf. Other documents 
work OK and can be viewed in acrobat. (No figures are rendered and 
displayed within LyX, however.) I am not sure what the problem is with 
this particular document. I can attach the document if anyone wants to 
examine it. It's about 19 pages. I have also tried ps2pdf12 and ps2pdf13 
to no avail.

There are some debug flags (type lyx -dbg) that you can set that will tell
you exactly what lyx is trying to do. A possible cause is that the image has
not been converted to the internal format; LyX looks for 'convert' possibly
at a specified path (it does in the cygwin version) and if it can not
convert the format then you get this error.

Cheers,
Duncan



 

Thanks for the suggestion. I turned on graphics debugging and opened the 
document. Then I scrolled so that just the first figure shows in LyX. 
I'm not sure why image conversion is failing. The convert program (I 
believe from ImageMagick) is installed and I can use to manually convert 
from eps to xpm. The conversion preferences appear to be OK also. Should 
I enable a different debug flag?

Placing Figures and Tables

2001-11-16 Thread Richard A. Bilonick

Why is it so difficult to place figures and tables in a sensible location?

I have placed the tables and figures exactly where I want them to be. LyX (or
Latex) puts them in ridiculous locations. It places tables very far from
where they are inserted. It often puts some figures in different sections.

I need to have a number figures and tables like this:

TEXT 1
Fig 1
Fig 2
Fig 3
Fig 4
TEXT 2
Table 1
Table 2
TEXT 3
Appendix
TEXT 4
TABLE (not floated)
TABLE (not floated)

How it comes out:

TEXT 1
Fig 1
TEXT 2
Fig 2
Fig 3
Fig 4
Table 1
Table 2
TEXT 3
Appendix
TEXT 4
TABLE (not floated)
TABLE (not floated)

I really don't want the tables and figures to float. But unless I place them
in floats, I can't get captions. Is there some way to get captions without
floats?

I've tried using !h in the layout|document|extra entry but it does not
good. Placement is completely  unpredictable as I add or change the text.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

LyX Won't Honor Margins?

2001-04-19 Thread Richard A. Bilonick

I'm using 1.1.6 fix 1-1 for Linux. If I open an old document with 1in margins,
it displays correctly in Ghostview. If I create a new document and specify 1in
margins in Layout - Document - Paper, it does NOT display with 1in margins.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? Is there a work around?

LyX 1.1.6fix FIles Can't Be Input into earlier versions

2001-03-21 Thread Richard A. Bilonick

I installed 1.1.6fix on one computer and created a document with two tables (among
other things). I uploaded to two other computers running earlier versions (1.1.5fix I
believe and 1.0.1). 1.1.5fix crashed and complained about tabular envirionment no
longer being used and to input the file into an older version of LyX and I had found
a bug in LyX (well, duh!). It printed out version 2.16 (or 216) versus 2.18 (or
2.18). 1.0.1 was able to open the file but the two tables appear to have been changed
to tex code but not in red.

I didn't seem to have any problem before in moving docs to other versions of LyX
until now.

Other than this problem I like the new look of LyX and the many new features.

Adding Vertical Space to Table Rows?

2000-07-14 Thread Richard A. Bilonick

Hi,

I've searched the LyX docs but can't find how to add vertical space to a single row
in a table. I have a cell that has a math fraction in it. When the table prints,
the top and bottom of the delimiters (parantheses) are touching the top and bottom
hoizontal lines of the table. I need to increase the overall height of the row. I
could not find a way to do this. It would make the table look so much better.

Importing Text into Table always causes LyX to Crash

2000-06-09 Thread Richard A. Bilonick

Hi. I'm using version 1.1.5pre1 and trying to import text (as lines) from a
text file into a table. I've set up a table with dimensions 140 x 11.
Everytime I do the import LyX crashes (running RH 6.1 I386 on a pc).

The only time this doesn't crash is if I insert into a very small table
(which of course screws up the data).

Is there some way to work around this problem? I've tried everything I can
think of but LyX always crashes. In earlier versions I never had this
problem.
