Dear users,

I hope you are doing very well.

Recently I tried to import a .tex file (attached with this email)  to 
Lyx software, however the following error happened.


*An error occurred while running:*

*“C:/Program Files/LyX 2.3/bin/tex2lyx” -f “generic-color.tex” 
“generic0color.lyx”*


It would be appreciated if you let me know if there is any solution 
for this problem.


Looking at the tex file, it appears that it uses a document class 
ieeecolor. LyX does not have a layout file for that, so that is the 
cause of the error.


The solution is to write a layout file for ieeecolor.cls. That appears 
to be based upon ieeetran, so something like:


   #% Do not delete the line below; configure depends on this
   #  \DeclareLaTeXClass{ieeeolor}
   #  \DeclareCategory{Articles}

   Format 66
   Input IEEETran.layout

(saved as layouts/ieeecolor.layout, then reconfigure) should get you 
much of the way there. Some things will import as ERT (whatever 
ieeecolor does that IEEETran does not), but that can be fixed. Please 
see chapter 5 of the Customization manual for more info.

It's a paragraph layout: Standard. See stdclass.inc.

But yes, at the moment, that is hardcoded. The reason is that the tag
turns up inside other tags and nested 's are invalid. But it probably
should be made customizable.

Probably "flex-insert INSETNAME" is what you want. Just assign that

There's a long-standing request for non-math macros, which is exactly
what's needed here. Someday when I have time to work on LyX again, I
might take that on.

You'd have to manually reset the footnote numbers. You can do this with:

\setcounter{footnote}{3}

or whatever. You'll need to restore it to whatever's right also after
the last one.

You will need other Qt packages. It may be that those are missing. I do
not know enough about Void Linux to know whether there is some easy way
to install those. (Debian provides apt-get install build-deps or
something.) It's possible you could find out what the dependencies are
of the default package. Here on Fedora, I have:

None that I know of, though of course you'll need the dependencies. The 
big one is Qt, and you can choose between Qt 4.x and Qt 5.x. If you use 
the latter, you'll need the switch --enable-qt5.




Where should I procure the latest *stable* LyX --- I don't want to download the 
latest Git thing that

Check the LyX download page. There are links to the source tarballs. You 
could also use git and just checkout the 2.3.6 tag, from which the 
tarballs were built. I myself generally use the 2.3.x branch from git. 
It's the 'stable' branch, what will become 2.3.7, and generally contains 
only bug fixes. If I'm doing my job right, it will always be as stable 
as its name implies. I confess that that sometimes isn't true!


Here:

    http://ftp.lyx.org/ftp/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.4/

you can also find the alpha releases of 2.4.0. There are MANY big 
improvements, and so far we have had no bad bug reports from alpha3. 
(Hence, beta1 will go out as soon as I can find the time.)

It would be great to set up a web page on the wiki with this
information, and more. Step by step instructions if possible. How does
one access the VM?

I've created a page here: https://wiki.lyx.org/Chrome/Chrome. You can
use the password "LyX" to edit it. Or I can do it later. Once we have
it, I will create a link from the Download page, crediting you with this
discovery, and send an announcement to our various lists.

It is pretty amazing what little tiny computers will do these days. I

I agree (that's good). I use /// ,, , etc and occasionally forget

Just to clarify: Bookmark 0 is really an internal thing. LyX sets it 
automatically at various times. The other bookmarks can be set manually 
(and are only set manually).

Just to clarify: LyX will magically convert it to an en-dash on screen

These will be a bit saner in 2.4.0 (at least in cua.bind): Ctrl-1,

Just to be clear: It is entirely possible to mix and match here. I use

If you have two entries with the same key, then you will get errors, and
LyX will abort the compilation. I just ran a test, with the same entry
(Heck:SolveFrege) repeated between two files, and get:

In LaTeX, you get the same error when running bibtex. It is up to you
whether to proceed! The first included entry is what appears in the bbl
file (as the second is ignored). And yes, LyX does output the bib files
in the order in which they are included in the dialog. (Note that the
dialog allows them to be re-ordered for this reason.)

Re: Parent-child book questions

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

used

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.


[snip]

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.


That button is for finding a *layout file* other than the ones that ship 
with LyX. You need to click the button "Select default master document" 
and then hit "Browse".



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?


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. (There is some stuff 
on that in LyX's own documentation.) Probably you will want to define a 
'fancy' page style to be used most of the time. (E.g., with running 
headers of chapter names on the left pages, and section names on the 
right pages, with page numbers left or right depending, etc.) In 
Document> Settings> Page Layout, you then choose "fancy" as the page style.


Then you can redefine the 'plain' style (as described in the fancyhdr 
docs) to do something simpler, with the copyright info at the bottom. 
(If you want that to change chapter to chapter, you can reissue the 
commands to do that.) Then at the start of each chapter, you do:


\thispagestyle{plain}

in ERT. In some classes, that actually happens automatically: The 
\chapter command issues that command itself. I'm not sure if your class 
does.


As always with LaTeX, think: how can I automate this?

LyX 2.4.0 Alpha 3

2021-02-19 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck

A third alpha of LyX 2.4.0 has now been released. It can be found here:

http://ftp.lyx.org/ftp/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.4/

As usual with alpha software, this is released for testing purposes 
only. Although many of us have been using it regularly, and it seems to 
be fairly stable, nasty surprises are always a possibility.


One of those, which more or less prevented Alpha 2 from working on 
Windows, should now have been fixed.


If you run into any problems, please report them either on the lyx-devel 
mailing list or on our bug tracker:

In mac.bind, we have:

\bind "C-g"  "word-find-forward"

So that should work as you expect, David. I take it that it does not work?

Open note inset and scroll down (I'm scrolling with touchpad), note 
content must be wisible in Lyx work area. The faster scroll, the 
higher CPU usage, but document moves very slowly and with quite a big 
delay and with big jumps. wayland can be the culprit. I opened lyx in 
xwayland mode and I can scroll through the note only slowly – after 
scrolling fast document are thrown back to initial position. CPU 
usage about 70%. In wayland – 99% if scrolling is intensive, up and 
down.


I can confirm the issue with Wayland. I unfortunately did not find 
easy way to mitigate the issue. I have idea for a proper fix, but it 
is a lot of work. I have been successful at procrastinating on that 
because nobody complained. Now that I have a real use case, I will 
have to do something about it ;)


The difficulty that we have is that, if we only compute metrics for 
the text visible on screen, we do not know what the width of the inset 
is (think a tall table for example). So either we can make the metrics 
process fast enough (which remains to be seen) or we have to find 
clever ways to typeset only parts of the inset.


Why does the typesetting part take longer on Wayland?

One more question: Does it occur when the *only* thing on the screen is
the inset?

As I said, I suspect that something weird happens with the metrics
calculation here. Either that, or there is some reason we paint the
screen multiple times, and maybe that is slower on Wayland.

It is worse on Wayland?

It's possible that the foreground text color is the same as the

Well, it is based upon another class, but it's exam.cls, which we don't
have a layout for yet. But exam.cls is itself based upon the standard
article class, since we find:

\LoadClass{article}

So I think you can get something close to working simply by copying
article.layout (from yoru LyX system directory) to tda.layout (in your
LyX user directory) and then trying again to import the template. Some
of the constructs will not import 'natively' but as ERT, but it should
still be good enough for you to get started.

I'll try to have a look at this tomorrow and see if I can come up with a
better layout file than the quick and dirty one.

I think you are going to have to do the following:

 1. Install tda.cls in your LaTeX setup (park it in an appropriate
location and make sure your LaTeX installation can find it).
 2. Create a LyX layout file for the tda class, and store that in your
local LyX directory.
 3. Reconfigure LyX so it finds the new layout.

See chapter 5 of the LyX Customization manual for details.

If you're lucky, the tda template will be based upon some standard LaTeX 
template (e.g., report or book), and you can get a working layout very 
simply: Copy report.layout (say) to tda.layout, and put that into your 
LyX user directory. Look at the tda.cls file (or post it here). You are 
likely to find some material that shows what it is based upon.

It looks as if you have a customized version of classic.ui here. Try
deleting (or moving) it. It seems as if it must have some strange

LyX should pick up python3 on reconfigure. But I'm not sure where that
gets stored.

You might want to raise this on devel. People there may have more ideas.

I believe there is a bug report asking for project management of this
kind, similar to what many IDEs and code editors offer. I've been
thinking about working on that myself but it's on a long list, and there
are workarounds.

First, if the project includes a 'master document' with a variety of
child documents, then opening the master will also open all the children
(and grandchildren, etc). They will be hidden but accessible via View>
Hidden Documents, which means you do have to unhide whichever one(s) you
want to work on.

But, and second, if the child has a 'default master' set (under
Document> Settings), then opening the child will also open the master,
and with that all of its other descendents. The child will then be
visible with the other documents hidden. (Probably we could use an
"Unhide All" function to open all those other ones.)

Finally, it's easy to write a small batch file that will open all the
LyX documents in a given directory (if that's how you have things
organized) and make them all visible. How to do that depends upon what
shells are available on your OS. But that is a very simple and very
flexible solution, though one outside LyX itself.

That is very odd. Assuming you had 2.3.6 installed before, the changes
were very minimal. Maybe there's been a change to the Qt version that

The preferred way to do that is with preamble code.

The old way was to do it manually:

\widowpenalty=1
\orphanpenalty=1000

But nowadays there's a package to do it: nowidow. Just install the
nowidow package and then put in the premable:

\usepackage{nowidow}

This is hard. At least for me, "Justified" indicates horizontal space.

You should use New Page rather than Page Break. The latter stretches the

Re: Adding an environment to the drop down menu

2021-01-19 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck

On 1/18/21 11:14 PM, Anthony Macks wrote:

Dear LyX users,

I have created a new environment by adding the following to my preamble.

\newcounter{YourTurn}[section]
\newenvironment{YourTurn}[1][]{\refstepcounter{YourTurn}\par\medskip
     \noindent \color{green}\textbf{Your Turn ~\theYourTurn. #1} 
\rmfamily\color{black}}{\medskip}


I would like to add this environment to the drop down list in the menu.

I know I have to edit a .layout file, but I am unsure as to what to do.


If this is just for one document, you can enter the necessary layout 
code under Document> Settings> Local Layout.


Something like this should work:

Format 66

Counter YourTurn
    Within Section
End

Style YourTurn
    LaTeXType Environment
    LaTeXName YourTurn
    LabelType Static
    LabelCounter YourTurn
    LabelString "Your Turn \theYourTurn"
    \newcounter{YourTurn}[section]
    Preamble
     \newcounter{YourTurn}[section]
\newenvironment{YourTurn}[1][]{\refstepcounter{YourTurn}\par\medskip
     \noindent \color{green}\textbf{Your Turn ~\theYourTurn. #1} 
\rmfamily\color{black}}{\medskip}

    EndPremable
End

That is pretty basic but should get you started.

The preamble code specified is just copied from yours: LyX will 
automatically insert it, so you now don't need it in your regular 
premable. The advantage is that LyX will insert it *only* if you use 
this environment.


See the Customization manual, section 5.2, for more details. Better yet, 
look at some of the modules and layout files that ship with LyX. The 
best say to understand the syntax is to see it in action.


If you might want to re-use this, you can put it into a module and put 
the module into the layouts/ folder of your user directory. You'll then 
need to reconfigure for it to show up. Modules also need a header, like:


#\DeclareLyXModule{Formula}
#DescriptionBegin
#An environment for numbered formulas.
#DescriptionEnd

This opens fine for me, with no error. Have you made any local

Eugene, can you reproduce?

Documentation Help

2021-01-13 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
Hi, everyone,

We hope to release LyX 2.4.0 in the next couple months. Before then,
there is some work that needs to be done on the documentation. If you've
always wanted to contribute to LyX but haven't because you don't know
how to code, then this is your chance!

The main task that needs doing is to copy the changes made in the
English documentation over into the Spanish, French, German, and
Japanese manuals, so that the translators can do translate it. You do
NOT have to speak one of these languages to do this (though that might
be helpful). It really is just a matter of going through the English
manual, finding the new or changed material (which is marked with
change-tracking), and pasting it into the other manuals. It's rote work,
but important work nonetheless.

Longer-term, we could also use someone to act as documentation manager
during the 2.5 development cycle and to do this kind of work along the
way. If you'd be interested in that job, please do let us know.

LyX 2.4.0 Alpha 1

2021-01-13 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
We are pleased to announce the release of the first alpha for LyX 2.4.0.
You can find source tarballs and binaries for Windows and OSX here:

http://ftp.lyx.org/ftp/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.4/

See this page

https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX24

for a description of new features and updates. As you will note, there
are quite a few of those.

As always with alpha software, this is released only for testing
purposes. While some of the developers have been using this version, and
we believe it is fairly stable, there are likely to be some unpleasant
surprises. That said, we would greatly appreciate testing, especially on
Windows, where we have few developers.

Should you run into a problem, please report it on our bug tracker:

LyX 2.3.6.2 Update for OSX Only

2021-01-09 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
A change in LyX 2.3.6.1 broke the use of SyncTeX with OSX (bug #12063).
This was due to inconsistencies in our underlying Qt libraries. Thus, a
new version fixing that problem has been released. Please see our
download page

for links to the new binaries.

I think this just got fixed for the next version (which, unfortunately,
is a little ways away). But maybe I'm wrong about that and it was
another language. I believe the extra dot comes from the translation file.

Can you please file a bug about this at lyx.org/trac/? That way we do
not lose track of it.

LyX 2.3.6.1

2021-01-03 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
LyX 2.3.6.1 is now released. This update fixes two problems.

The first is that the inclusion of TeX files as child documents was
unintentionally broken by the new code that allows for the creation of
new files from the child document dialog. The second is that there was
some odd behavior of menus under Gnome Wayland, at least on Fedora, due
to how window positions were stored between sessions.

Otherwise, this version is the same as LyX 2.3.6, and users who do not
experience these problems need not upgrade.

The original announcement is included below.

Public release of LyX version 2.3.6
===

We are proud to announce the release of LyX 2.3.6. This is the sixth
maintenance release in the 2.3.x series. We encourage all users to
upgrade to this version.

You can download LyX 2.3.6 from http://www.lyx.org/Download/.

LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based
on the structure of your documents and not simply their appearance. It is
released under a Free and Open Source Software license.

LyX 2.3.6 is the sixth maintenance release in the 2.3.x series. It is the
result of on-going efforts to make our stable version more reliable and
more stable. Most of the changes are fairly minor, fixes of smallish bugs,
but a couple crashes have been fixed, as well.

One oft-requested feature (going back 13 years) is the ability to create
new child documents from within the 'include file' dialog. This is now
possible. Another equally old bug that has been fixed is that pasting
table content outside a table no longer pastes tab characters.

If you think you have found a bug in LyX 2.3.6, please open a bug report at
http://www.lyx.org/trac/wiki/BugTrackerHome. If you're not sure whether it
really is a bug, you can e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel
 lists.lyx.org) and ask.

If you have trouble using LyX or have a question, consult the documentation
that comes with LyX (under the Help or Apple menu) and the LyX wiki, which
is at http://wiki.lyx.org/. If you can't find the answer there, e-mail the
LyX users' list (lyx-users  lists.lyx.org), where you will find an
active community of people who are ready to help.

We hope you enjoy using LyX 2.3.6.

The LyX team.

The warning is telling you the exact problem: For whatever reason, the
Abstract is appearing in the LyX file after something that isn't part of
the title. (In LaTeX terms, that means that it appears after \maketitle
or the equivalent has been output.) If you move it ahead of such things,
then the abstract should appear. I'm not sure about index terms.

I do not know, but here's an easy experiment: Copy the IEEEtran.layout
file into your local LyX layout directory (e.g., $HOME/.lyx/layouts/,
for me). Now rename it to whatever the name of the new class file is and
try importing one of their new LaTeX templates. If the changes are as
minor as you suggest, that should just work. Possibly a few small tweaks
will be needed, but someone who actually uses this layout will be best
placed to do that.

There are no plugins as such for LyX. Anything that's in the code is in
the main codebase. The only exception is the various configuration files
that are text files (layouts, templates, the math autocomplete file,
etc). So kind of thing you are envisaging would just need to be added to
the main code.

I'm curious though what you mean by "generalized text autocompletion".

I'll make a patch to fix the obvious problem. I'll also try to factor
that out and write some conditional code we could use to test the other
way of doing things.

I think he was looking for something that works from within LyX? Of
course, support could be added for other VCSs if someone had the
motivation. It's a fairly simple process.

Hi Matěj,

 From what I understand, the reason that things are the way they are in
LyX is that git was added "recently". I'm not sure about adding an
option/preference. In general, we are hesitant to add preferences like
this, and I believe you're the first one to ask for it.

One possibility that *might* satisfy you would be to default to Git if
RCS is not detected on the system. For example, on Linux if the command
"ci" is not available and the command "git" is available, LyX could 
just

assume Git is intended and can do the setup. However, I'm not sure what
I think of that and I'm not sure what other LyX developers think of
that.

Although I'm also a gitophile, in my opinion the biggest downside to
choosing Git by default and to LyX doing "git init" is that Git can
create lots of files (in its internal .git directory). I do not know if
users would expect this and especially since using Dropbox is so 
common,

users might be surprised and confused (by Dropbox syncing) from the
creation of so many files.


We could at least give users the choice when choosing "Version 
Control> Register" of what to use. This could be as simple as a combo 
box, right?


It would also be nice, I think, if we could detect if we're in a 
directory controlled by git and, if so, regsiter the file using git. 
This is as easy as checking the return value of 'git status'. With 
svn, I think 'svn log' will work. I don't know about other cases.


OK, I see that this is supposed to work, but it doesn't work in all 
cases. In particular, we look for .git/index, which will fail if we're 
in a subdirectory (and presumably also for svn, which is handled the 
same way). So that could be improved.


Obviously, we could just use the parent directory search thing. But is 
there a reason not just to check the return value of "git status" etc? I 
would think this was also an easier way to see if a file is under 
version control. But perhaps it is less portable. Pavel, you must have 
thought about this?

It's really quite easy to build LyX yourself. You don't need git (let 
alone github). You can just download the source that we release. Then 
it's the usual method:


# tar -zxvf lyx-2.3.6.tar.gz
# cd lyx-2.3.6
# ./configure

Add --enable-qt5 there if you want to use qt5

# make
# sudo make install

To get the dependencies needed for the build, you should be able to do:

# sudo apt-get build-deps lyx

There's also a PPA for Ubuntu. I don't know if it works with Debian.

As Kornel said, you may be missing the Qt header files. So you need to
install something like qt-devel. Note that, by default, the 2.3.x series
uses Qt 4 (this will change with 2.4.0, though Qt will still be usable).
So, even if you have the Qt 5 devel packages, that may fail, unless you
configure with --enable-qt5. You can also install the Qt4 devel packages
and not use that flag.

I believe you should be able to do "sudo apt-get build-dep lyx" to
install the build dependencies. I don't know whether those would be for
Qt 4 or Qt 5, so you may have to experiment.

I'm a little puzzled why you would need that. LyX uses Qt, yes, but
packages like that typically involve some kind of communication between
Qt and Gtk. I don't know why LyX would need that.

As Kornel suggested, it would help to see the error message when you
attempt to run configure or cmake.

Indeed. It works separately for "[" and for "]".

It also works separately for "[" and for ")", which is not a bad thing 
per se.


About my idea of browsing through the variable-sized delimiters, 
should I put it on the wishlist?


Sure. You can also play around with this yourself. There's a file, 
autocorrect, that you can find in your LyX system directory. (Here it is 
at /usr/share/lyx/autocorrect.) It's just a text file. The part that 
controls this behavior looks like:


( * \bigl( \bigl( * \Bigl( \Bigl( * \biggl( \biggl( * \Biggl( \Biggl( * 
( ) * \bigl) \bigl) * \Bigl) \Bigl) * \biggl) \biggl) * \Biggl) \Biggl) 
* ) The first thing is what's there already; the next is the 'trigger'; 
the latter is the result. So you could do e.g.


( / [ [ / { { / (

and similarly for the right side, and now slash cycles through delimiter 
types. You'd also have to do


\bigl( / \bigl[

etc for the sizes.

I think that if you copy the system autocorrect file to your local LyX 
user directory (so, here, I'd put it at $HOME/.lyx/autocorrect), then 
LyX will pick use your modified version. (This is generally true with 
configuration files.)


I was just looking throguh that file. There's all kinds of cool stuff in 
there!

Yes, that's a very good idea. I don't know how difficult that would or

At the moment, the * thing works with paired delimiters, but it only
changes the first one, which is definitely a bug. It should obviously
change both. I also don't know how hard that would be.

There's not one, but here's how it works: Enter math by pressing Ctrl-M

Mac Binary with Qt 5.12.9

2020-12-05 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
Hi, all,

Due to bug #12042 (https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/12042), Stephan Witt
has produced an OSX package built with Qt 5.12.9. This is a more
up-to-date version of Qt than we've been using. If the package works
well, then we'll replace the binary for 2.3.6 with it. But first, we
need to make sure it works well! We don't expect there to be any
problems, but you never know. Could some brave souls test it out and let
us know how it works?

It can be found here:

I don't think the installer will delete them, but you may need to copy
them over manually to the new user directory (if there is one). Of
course, it's probably a good idea to back these up before installing the
new version. And regularly for any reason.

LyX 2.3.6 Windows Installer

As noted in the announcement of LyX 2.3.6, there is now an updated
installer available for Windows, including a 64 bit version. In order to
update to 2.3.6 on Windows using the new installer, you should uninstall
the previous 2.3 releases using the uninstaller or from within the
control panel/Windows settings beforehand. Make sure to not install LyX
2.3.6 into an existing LyX directory by choosing an empty folder for the

The attached is a hacked version of the enumitem module with additional
list types, including inline. You can either put it into your layouts/
directory as is, in which case it will replace the official version, or
rename it and put it there, in which case it will give you a different
option.

LyX 2.3.6 Released

2020-11-30 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 2.3.6. This is the sixth 
maintenance release in the 2.3.x series. It is the result of on-going 
efforts to make our stable version more reliable and more stable. Most 
of the changes are fairly minor, fixes of smallish bugs, but a couple 
crashes have been fixed, as well.


One oft-requested feature (going back 13 years) is the ability to create 
new child documents from within the 'include file' dialog. This is now 
possible. Another equally old bug that has been fixed is that pasting 
table content outside a table no longer pastes tab characters.


With 2.3.6, we also release an updated version of the Windows installer. 
(It has been available for previous versions for testing.) Perhaps the 
most significant change is that LyX is now available as a 64 bit Windows 
application. Thanks to new contributor Eugene Chornyi for this work.


You can download the sources in tar.gz format 
<\"ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/2.3.x/lyx-2.3.5.tar.gz\;> (also 
tar.xz <\"ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/2.3.x/lyx-2.3.5.tar.xz\;>). 
There are also some binaries <\"ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/bin/2.3.5/\;> 
available.


SPECIAL NOTE FOR LINUX USERS: Some Fedora users (specifically ones using 
the Wayland compositor with Gnome) have reported problems with the menus 
being shifted down on the screen. (See this bug 
https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/11746 which is itself due to a Qt bug 
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-68636.) This has been fixed in the 
Fedora 2.3.6 RPM but not in the 2.3.6 source code. Any users who 
encounter this problem are asked please to report it either on the bug 
tracker or on the lyx-devel mailing list. (Those compiling themselves 
can apply this patch: https://tinyurl.com/y46z2rbk.)

Now I would like to take care of the cross-references and numbering of

I fail using pandoc-crossref in a correct way that the expected result 
is created (a docx-document including the cross-references and

displayed in the output-docx-file.


I use the following command / syntax:

pandoc -s -f latex --filter pandoc-crossref -o destinationfile.docx -t 
docx latexfile.tex


I checked the documentation, and I am not sure about the 
"--filter"-option. I am not sure if a filter has to be defined somewhere.


It would probably be best to ask this question wherever pandoc itself 
gets discussed. I'm not sure how many people here use it, let alone are 
expert with it.

Why not to add a protected space? Ctrl+Space.


That produces

It looks as if what's copied from JabRef is HTML and LyX is trying to
convert it to LaTeX for pasting. If you run from a terminal, you might

I guess it's a bug, but I'm not sure we ever considered this kind of
setup. (Apparently, what's on the X clipboard is not appearing on the
Windows one. Does that work with other Linux apps?) I'd suggest you
either file it on trac or raise it on the devel list.

OK, I see the problem. Two solutions:

 1. The simplest is to add an empty ERT box to the first item. This will
prevent LyX from collapsing the empty element and adds nothing to
the output.
 2. Local Layout:

Format 66
Style Enumerate
KeepEmpty 1
End

The "KeepEmpty" layout tag instructs LyX not to delete empty lines.

I'm sure that the ordinary LyX binaries will still run, under some

Stephan will know better than I, but presumably there are two options.
(i) Someone who has one of these things is able to compile the source
and produce the binaries. It would take a bit to get the build
environment set up properly, but once that's done, I don't think it's
that hard. (ii) It becomes possible to cross-compile for M1 on, say,

This is intentional. The idea is that you can write some LaTeX,

My goal is to apply macro-based styling to various keywords in a 
document, so a macro seems like the most natural way to mark those 
items and then update them, as needed.  However, I'm happy to consider 
other, better, ways to accomplish that.


This looks like a job for a character style. The Logical Markup module 
defines a 'Code' style that renders its content as monospace. Of course, 
it can be customized.

I would like to point out that the major push for this release was
to get some feedback about new Docbook output format we provide.

If anyone with related expertise could give it a try and provide
us the feedback that would be approeciated...


Just reposting with a new subject line, to try to get more attention.

Probably best here to (i) file an enhancement request at the bug tracker
<https://www.lyx.org/trac/wiki/BugTrackerHome> and (ii) send a version
of this message to lyx-devel. That'll get it maximal exposure.

Re: LyX acting differently between computers

actually this both means, get rid of Windows :-)-O

Seriously, I have tried to get LyX and MikTeX working on Windows, but
given up.


The LyX project itself does not have an official view about TeX 
distributions, but our experience has tended to be that TeXLive is more 
reliable than MikTeX on Windows.

Testing Release of 2.4.0 Development Branch

2020-10-29 Thread Richard Kimberly Heck
Hi, everyone,

We are beginning the process of moving towards the next major release of
LyX, which will be 2.4.0. Toward that end, we have prepared a 'testing'
release. Please note that this is very much for testing. We do not
necessarily recommend that anyone use it for daily work, although some
of us do. (Be aware that you may have to deal with some bugs and that
files edited with 2.4.x cannot be opened in 2.3.x without being exported
to that format.)

Both source code and binaries for Windows and OSX can be found here:

    http://ftp.lyx.org/ftp/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.4/

Binaries for various Linux distros may or may not be available from
their associated repositories. (But, if you are on Linux, you should not
have too much trouble compiling the source. If you need help, just ask.)

We will greatly appreciate any reports on how well these packages work!
You can post comments either to lyx-users or to lyx-devel.
