Did you configure the PDF Command for forward-search in LyX output preferences?

Ok, but why is it needed?

Either you’re not using pdflatex or you didn’t do the first step of my recipe 
(enable the „synchronize with output“ option in preferences).

Ok, it should work. Let’s see how to find the problem with your setup.

First, it’s not needed to make some selection in LyX to get forward-search 
working.

After doing the pdflatex run (you’re using pdflatex too, are you?) you can 
check the LaTeX log file and there is a button „Open Containing Directory“. 
Please open it and check the generated TeX file for the line with "\synctex=-1“ 
and a file named like your document plus .synctex.gz

I made the experiment and it looks like that:

$ ls -l 
/private/var/folders/y8/l_k5f2ms4rngwbwvt9jp53hwgt/T/lyx_tmpdir.TRMAcnQibDFe/lyx_tmpbuf2

I mean you should use Command-Shift-Click (mouse click with Command and Shift 
key pressed) in Skim.

With synctex enabled the PDF-output has special markers to identify the TeX 
source code line of the TeX source files matching the PDF-text. The position of 
the mouse click in Skim is used by Skim to lookup the current TeX source code 
line of the TeX source file. This information is passed to LyX with the help of 
the lyxeditor script.

In case of a match in LyX with a document in any window of LyX the match is 
selected. On a Mac the LyX application is not raised top-most by itself. The 
osascript is used to raise the LyX application window.

Use Cmd-Shift-Click to mark the text fragment around the clicked word in LyX. 
The LyX wiki mentions the arguments for the Skim part with osascript. This is 
required with LyX 2.3 to get the LyX window frontmost at the same time. The 
lyxeditor script is part of the application bundle LyX on mac.

The only hard fact is the removal of /usr/bin/python (and all the libraries and 
eggs). So there is no out-of-the-box python anymore.

LyX is trying to use python3 while looking for python. This one 
(/usr/bin/python3) is present for a long time and a stub to ask for install of 
it. The real python3 is part of the developer tools and can be download from 
Apple freely. Of course other alternatives are available. The „official“ one 
from python.org or the python from homebrew or macports.

What the best choice for the user is depends on its background, IMO.

Thank you, but I think the time consuming option with virtual machines is the 
better one.

Currently I have Monterey 12.1 with MacTeX and LyX 2.3.6.2 up and running. Next 
step is the update to 12.3.1 …

Apple finally removed Python 2 in macOS 12.3 - sorry for LyX not being 
prepared. At the time LyX 2.3.6.2 was built it was announced already but not 
sure when it happens.

Now you have to install Python yourself. You may download it from python.org 
(https://www.python.org/downloads/macos/). Alternatively you may run python in 
a terminal window and choose to install it from Apple. I recommend the first 
option.

The way to go is to restore your complete user from a time machine backup, IMO. 
In the past I restored the whole system from TM backup and did a system update 
afterwards.

I have much more settings (e.g. the private key rings etc.) to copy. LyX is the 
smallest problem.

In case you want a fresh OS start you have to be more careful. I’m not sure 
anymore how I did it once - but it’s really not an easy task. Google is your 
friend. Another option is to use the Apple support you have for the initial 
time period of your new device.

No, not really. I knew this tipp and it doesn’t help with LyX on Mac.

It has an effect for Safari and e.g. SourceTree but not with Apple Mail or LyX. 
Qt doesn’t care for it.

=== 8< Qt documentation >8 ===
cursorFlashTime : int
This property holds the text cursor's flash (blink) time in milliseconds
The flash time is the time required to display, invert and restore the caret 
display. Usually the text cursor is displayed for half the cursor flash time, 
then hidden for the same amount of time, but this may vary.
The default value on X11 is 1000 milliseconds. On Windows, the Control Panel 
value is used and setting this property sets the cursor flash time for all 
applications.
=== 8< Qt documentation >8 ===

IMO it is an Qt bug. One may work around it. But I’m not sure how to do it 
right.

That seems to be weary.

So on windows Qt respects the OS settings and on Mac this is not the case 
(because of missing configuration options). The LyX code isn’t different on 
Windows and Mac here, AFAIK.

But there is a ticket with your issue and no solution yet:

Regarding the blinking cursor… it is quite common to have a blinking cursor. I 
agree it might be desirable to adjust the frequency or turn it off - but at a 
system wide level. I don’t know of a setting to read this parameter from. How 
do you adjust the cursor in Apple Mail or Safari? How do you adjust it with the

Please, don’t top post!

IMO, you have two options:

1. encrypt the mysteries of enchant and find it yourself, as LyX is not 
responsible for this operation.
Read the doc here: https://abiword.github.io/enchant/

2. Switch to a less intransparent beast and use e.g. Hunspell.

Hello Patrick,

the answer depends on the spell checker engine you’re using.

The options are aspell, hunspell, enchant and the Apple speller. Not all are 
available on all platforms. Please check your settings and tell which one 
you’re using.

Hi Daniel,

I didn’t say it’s not the case. I said it’s probably because of the CPU 
architecture. Maybe I’m wrong.

I remember to see the very same warning with macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 for 
programs using 32bit Intel CPU code.

Hi Murat,

that’s probably because of the LyX-2.3.6.2 package is pure Intel code and the 
friendly OS wants to warn you about the fact the Apple company is on the way to 
drop the support for the Intel CPUs.

The upcoming LyX-2.4 and the next LyX-2.3 release will be build for both CPU 
architectures - the Intel and the Apple M1 chips.

Hi Steve,

I’m not sure - but IMO the production of the index files should mention
in the logs the fact of inconsistent page numbers. As long as this happens
one has to redo the latex compilation process including the index creation.

AFAIK LyX scans the logs and is doing exactly that.

Please read the log files of your tools after the first run. 
Probably you’ll find some recommendation about this there.

Sorry, if you are knowing this please ignore this message.

Hi Steve,

you may insert a Listings inset and configure it to point to your C file.

After that you can define the lines you want to show and many more things.

See here for the options:

Ok, I mentioned it because you said you’ve killed LyX. If you’ve quit LyX
regularly then the temporary files are removed and you cannot find them anymore.
The running process has this open and therefore you can see it. It’s on disk
present until you kill the background process and then the disk space is freed.

Hi Rich,

on quit LyX removes it’s temporary files and directories. This doesn’t happen 
on sudden death of LyX. The question now is: is /tmp the location for temporary 
files and directories?

On MacOS it’s not /tmp if you don’t set the path explicitly to /tmp.

I’ve tried LyX-2.3.6.2 with Qt-5.12.9. I cannot see any problem until now. It 
works. 

But there is at least one report for a problem with the presentation of file

I cannot reproduce on Mac either. 

But there are reports sometimes about LyX’s settings not being persistent.

There are user errors:

https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/11558

or these are either Qt problems or LyX - I cannot say.

Ok, it would be better if I verify my statements sometimes.

I’ve checked it myself now and it works for me. See the log below:

Conclusion:

1. The working environment is LyX-2.3.6.2 and svn binary in path (verify it in 
terminal).
2. You may check and possibly update your LyX app.
3. You may activate the status message pane and redo the register VC command.

The problem with the "Register Item“ menu item is its missing cleverness. It 
assumes the RCS version control system. That’s why it is unusable with all 
other systems like SVN and GIT.

You have to register (add) it to your repository manually or with the help of 
your GUI. Later you’re able to work with the LyX version control features.

No, I’m not aware of any specific problem. The difference between this one and 
the previous version is the Qt library version only. I simply had no chance to 
use this library version with LyX 2.3.x yet.

Problems may arise with document presentation and ui effects only. The LyX code 
ist the same.

The probability of show stoppers is very low. The library version 5.12.9 should 
be stable.

Thanks for testing.

Sorry, I’m not responsive these days.

AFAICS the situation is similar to transition from PowerPC to Intel CPUS.

1. There is emulation software to run Intel code on M1 CPUs (like Rosetta was) 
in MacOSX 11 (Big Sur).
2. There is the so called universal binary format which allows to provide 
binaries for both CPU architectures.
3. There is Xcode12 which is able to produce code for both architectures in 
universal format on Intel or M1.
4. There is a developer program for eligible persons to support the transition 
(hardware+software).

All these points are available these days (Xcode12 is beta!).

For LyX I conclude: we are not in a hurry.
IMO, the way to go is using clang from Xcode12 to build LyX for Intel and M1 as 
universal binary.
But I’m unable to prove this claim now.

Hi Murat,

there is a ticket that sounds similar:
https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/11894

Do you have this problem or another one? What version of LyX you’re using?
What’s the setting of App-Download of gatekeeper in your security settings?

There is an extended attribute for files in newer OSX versions.
This can be used to mark applications downloaded from non-Apple sources.
LyX is not available via AppStore so there is chance it gets marked.

The workaround mentioned in the ticket is wrong. The correct one is IMO:

$ sudo xattr -c -r /Applications/Lyx.app

Use it if your problem matches the description in the ticket.

BR, Stephan

 Ok, thanks! I did that but the log shows nothing unusual. But the
 problem seems related only to files that reside in Dropbox folders.
 Lyx opens the files directly but does not download the contents from
 the Dropbox cloud. If i open a folder in the Dropbox app and
 doubleclick on a LyX-file it opens correctly in LyX. It used to work
 without hazzle from the LyX-menus before. Maybe it is a Dropbox problem.

On a Mac it’s shipped w/o any assignment. So it should be true.

Yes, that’s true. It was changed from 20 to 50 on 2016-01-13.

> 2. Where do I find that "there is a hardcoded bound at 100”?

The first hard coded bound is 50 indeed. It’s in the source code in header file 
src/LyXRC.h line 547 for LyX 2.3.5.

The 2nd upper limit of 100 is in source code file src/Session.cpp line 47 the 
assignment of absolute_max_last_files.

This is the limit JMarc had in mind, AFAICS.

You can’t change it without recompile the complete application.

In fact it’s the list of last accessed files. What do you expect? What is the 
list that you requires? In your first mail you wrote:

> I’d like to review the last 100 files that I’ve opened.

Indeed this list is stored in the file "~/Library/Application 
Support/LyX-2.3/session“

You may fill it yourself if you know how to do it. The first two lines of this 
file are:

## Automatically generated lyx session file 
## Editing this file manually may cause lyx to crash.

So, you’re warned …

Yes, I’ve seen this too. But this is already fixed in the 2.4.x series. So as 
it is no crash I didn't try to solve it.

I can confirm your bug with Qt5 on macOS with LyX 2.3.4. I think this is the 
version you’re talking about all the time.

One has to use the math toolbar and there choose the symbol Å from the 
miscellaneous pane.

The backtrace is:

The log file look indeed similar - but sudo isn’t appropriate here.
The configuration run checks the availability of system components
for ordinary users, i.e. for you.

ATM, I have no idea why the module detection stops at algorithm2e.module.
This is the problem, IMO.

Is your LyX installation complete? The directory 
/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/layouts should contain 231 files.
$ ls /Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/layouts|wc
 231 2313964
$ ls -1R /Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources|wc
42373917   76461
The complete tree has 4237 items.

To check another thing: there is an automatic upgrade in configure run.
Perhaps it copies some problematic contents from your 2.2 installation.
To circumvent this you may try these commands (no sudo please):
$ mkdir /tmp/LyX
$ cd /tmp/LyX
$ python -tt /Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/configure.py 
--binary-dir=/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/MacOS/

After your configure operation in /tmp/LyX you’ll probably have the same
log file as before. I’d like to know where the contents of /tmp/LyX is
different to mine:
$ ls -ltr /tmp/LyX

Sorry, I forgot to give you the advise to work in a temporary directory last 
time.
I’m afraid you have to cleanup the working directory you’ve used for your 
attempt
to run LyX configure script (your home directory?).

There are the following directories:
bind clipart doc examples images kbd layouts scripts templates ui
and some list files.

That would surprise me. On a Unix system and a Mac one should be able
to write to the directories below the home directory. LyX runs with
user privileges on a Mac all the time - permission problems shouldn’t
exist.

Hi Matthias,

as others said already - it should work.

What can be done to diagnose the problem? I would need to know what the LyX 
configure run did.

There is a folder in your user directory named ~/Library/Application 
Support/LyX-2.3. This is the location to look for the file configure.log. 
Please send it to the users list or in a private mail to me.

I don't believe this title is correct. It looks like the (wrong) output of a

Hmmm, the export possibilities efficiently depend on the existing converters. 
The longer list doesn’t necessarily mean more possibilities… I don’t know 
off-hand how the lists are constructed and why they contain useless entries.

Hello Jess,

I’m on Mac OS 10.14.4 with LyX 2.3.2. I’m unable to export to DocBook too. But 
- at least with the Tutorial - I don’t get a crash on Cancel.

Can you send me the stack trace please and tell me if it happens with every LyX

You may consider using sips on Mac. It’s very useful for converting pdf files

The good thing is - it works for me. I didn’t had to add the converter. The 
built-in converter script succeeds. Then I tried it with your converter 
definition and failed. Finally I noticed it would be good to call the convert 
utility with « convert $$i $$o » - i.e. in => out. Now I can preview it with 
ps2pdf and export a pdf of it.

Does this work for you?

Stephan

Bonjour Jaques,

there is a problem with converters (inkscape) on Mac OSX, ATM. To be sure 
you’re affected by the known problem it would be good to have an example 
document. See "How to create a minimal example" section in the following:

I’m sure it worked for me in the past. So I gave it a try on Mojave and it 
works.

Then I tried to break it and this is easy. My converter configuration does the 
SVG to PNG conversion with rsvg-convert because I’ve installed it from 
MacPorts. But the idea was to have a reasonable fallback for those not having 
it. It looks like not working anymore. I changed my system to make rsvg-convert 
unavailable and now I cannot display SVG anymore too.

I’ll investigate the issue and report back.

is it a problem with LyX 2.3.2 and with 2.3.1 forward search is fast?

My guess was: it’s a problem new with Mojave…

 Why do you think the graphic in the PDF is a bitmap? I have zoomed in on
 it and never got any pixels to see. At least it must be an extremely
 high resolution bitmap then.

There are fundamental differences between the handling of SVG and PDF files in 
LyX.

LyX is using Qt plugins to render the images on screen.

For PDF files one has to convert them to temporary bitmap files because there 
is no plugin to render them directly. (Perhaps this is not true anymore.) For 
SVG files there is a plugin. But this one is limited in functionality. There 
was a decision to not use it for on-screen display because of the complaints 
regarding missing details.

The problem with the temporary images is the fixed resolution of the generated 
images. The used cache is not invalidated in case of higher preview zoom 
levels. Furthermore you can have different resolutions at runtime too. In case 
of a machine with multiple monitors with different physical resolutions you get 
different values for moving the LyX window around.

My alternate solution is to change the template directory to the local 
templates in your home directory and place a symbolic link to the system 
template dir inside it. That way you can reach both places quickly. On a Mac 
this is done automatically on first configuration. Unfortunately there is no 
(known) API to modify the list of directory shortcuts on the left side of the

The spell checker function isn’t document specific, IMHO.

Hunspell dictionaries are bundled with LyX 2.3.0, you shouldn’t have to change 
anything to use it. Native spell checker (the default) is using the OS spell 
checker service. For Aspell you need the dictionaries that come with macports 
aspell.

Probably the best you can do is to enable file related debug messages to check 
hunspell file lookup and GUI debug messages for native spell checker operation.
Verify the messages and post them here for reference. You can enable messages 
at runtime from the View > Messages dialog.

 Thank you Paul! This works fine and takes me out of immediate danger zone. 
 I guess a module would be a good idea in the long run.
 
 A somewhat linked issue is that I get an error message if I use the rotate 
 package in a LyX file that uses tablefootnotes: "Package tablefootnote 
 Error: Package rotating loaded after tablefootnote."
 
 Hard to find a place to load rotate before the tablefootnote though.
 
 Many thanks again!

The correct path name for the user configuration directory is
shown in the About LyX dialog. Probably there is a missing or
an additional space in path name here.

On Mac the directory path name should contain LyX-2.3, BTW.

On Mac you may have multiple LyX applications on your system.
The standard location is the folder /Applications and the name
is LyX.app. There it is located in Contents/Resources/lyx2lyx/.

So, the standard is 
/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/Resources/lyx2lyx/lyx2lyx

But the application bundle is completely relocatable. It is up
to the owner of the Mac to know where the „current“ LyX.app is
located.

How do you want to achieve this? I’m not so confident it’s good to change the 
current computation of screen zoom. Every preference saved to disk would be 
„invalid“ after a change.

I’m not against a decision what the best default zoom level is.

The default on OSX is the native spell checker service of Apple. AFAIK it’s 
internally some hunspell-based spell checker engine. But, by using the OSX 
based service the learned words are not application specific. If a word was 
learned it’s possible to „unlearn“ it again with right mouse button menu.

Please send the file config.log.

IMO, it’s better to discuss this on the developers list.
So I’ve CCed lyx-devel.

AFAIK there is a LyX package for Fedora. Perhaps you can use it instead.

Hi Mark,

LyX on Windows saves the preferences in a version specific directory, IMO.
The "About LyX“ dialog should tell you the location. Make a note where it is
before doing the upgrade. You may try to restore your settings from there after 
the upgrade. Compare the files in the two different directories and adjust
them accordingly.

I hope it works as I’m not on Windows. I’ve CCed Uwe Stöhr - perhaps he
can tell you more or a simpler solution.

Yes, this should work in principle. I don’t have these tools - the point is:
you have to wrap the command line utility you can use in terminal.
But care for Kornels advice below.

The first line „#!/bin/sh“ is another ritual were you shouldn’t be
creative :) Don’t break it into multiple lines.

The exec in front of the command line utility is again for efficiency.
The shell process created by LyX to start the CAS utility will be
replaced by the CAS utility instead of creating another child process.

Yes, Kornel, you’re right. The spaces in path name need quotes.
In case of maxima it was not required to quote the path name because
it doesn’t contain spaces.

Dear Paola,

no problem, we’re almost there.

Sorry, I forgot to adjust the PATH setting in terminal.
I have $HOME/bin already in PATH in terminal.
This is not standard, obviously - so let’s add it for the test :)
This is the equivalent of adding $HOME/bin to LyX PATH settings.

See the screenshot.

Stephan

1. You need to create the wrapper first and may try it (after creating it) in 
terminal by typing "$HOME/bin/maxima“
2. The wrapper should be placed in folder $HOME/bin (which is created first in 
case it doesn’t exist already by „mkdir“)
3. The snip surrounded two lines is the contents of the wrapper script - „8<" 
and „>8" are the two scissors :)

To explain the terminal commands:
The first terminal command is ensuring the existence of the folder „$HOME/bin“.
The second one (starting with „cat“ and ending with EOF) is one the way to 
create the wrapper script without any editor.
The third command is making your new wrapper script executable.

The 2nd command needs to be entered exactly as you see it.

You can verify what you did by using the terminal command:
$ cat $HOME/bin/maxima

It should give you the 2-line-script between the lines surrounded by the 
scissors.

The problem why you has to do it yourself is: I cannot send you any shell 
script.
No virus scanner will let it through. It doesn’t matter if it is useful or not.

Stephan

 What happens if you call maxima from the console window and input the

The problem is that LyX contains the call of the external utility as hard-coded 
string and it is „maxima“.

The only solution I can see is to wrap the wrapper script „maxima.sh“ located 
inside the Maxima.app bundle
with a utility script like the following code (I cannot attach it - every virus 
checker will block the transport):
=== 8< snip here >8 ===
#!/bin/sh
exec /Applications/Maxima.app/Contents/Resources/maxima.sh "$@"
=== 8< snip here >8 ===

In terminal you may do this:
$ mkdir -p $HOME/bin
$ cat - > $HOME/bin/maxima <

How did you call maxima in terminal?

I have it installed too and it looks like that:

It seems one has to start maxima.sh to get the command line interface. I’m not 
sure LyX knows it.
In any case one has to add "/Applications/Maxima.app/Contents/Resources“ to the 
PATH.

Hi,

it looks like a problem with the build I didn’t notice.

Until a new package is available you has to use 2.2.1 instead.

You didn’t mention the version numbers of any of your software components. 
For now I’ll assume it doesn’t matter.

You have to make sure your TeX installation is found by LyX.

1st thing is to Reconfigure. If this does’t help check the
contents of the PATH-Prefix in LyX-preferences. It should
contain "/Library/TeX/texbin“ for newer MacTeX installations.

If you don’t get further locate the protocol file of your attempt
to reconfigure LyX. It is in your home folder in the hidden folder
"Library/Application Support/LyX-2.2“ and is named „configure.log“.
Please send the contents of this file to the mailing list.

Hi Frank,

I don’t know, what your problem with LyX's SVN-support is - but
it’s active for directories within an SVN-checkout. In case you
want to work without version control you have to copy the document
out of the scope of the version control.

Obviously the description for personal dictionary management with LyX you’ve
read in the LaTeX-forum is wrong for the Enchant spell checker.

The enchant spell checker is another layer between LyX and the real function.
LyX calls enchant functions. Enchant is doing what is configured there.
Either myspell, ispell or something else.

See e.g. here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/enchant

According to this manual you may have a look in your home directory in .enchant

Hi Charlie,

yes, this worked before and it’s not removed. It should work.

The menu item shows up if the marked word is found in personal dictionary.

How did you add it to the personal dictionary? Are you able to provide a 
minimal example document to demonstrate the problem?

Isn’t this a workaround for a broken spell checker backend and/or dictionary?

If I try it with the hunspell command line on CentOS I get: 
==
$ hunspell -d en_US
Hunspell 1.2.8
For example communities and communities'
*
*
+ community
*
+ community
==

I interpret it that it works ok. Hunspell got the words „communities“ and 
„communities'" through affix removal.

I’ll have to check what LyX is doing here.

now I’m curious how you’re using ispell. The time you’ve reported your problem
for the first time you’ve mentioned you’re using Aspell.

Are you able to say when this problem arose first time? Which version of LyX
started to have it?

Hi Rich,

I’ve pasted your email into a new document and switched to Aspell as my
current spell checker backend in LyX. As you’ve described it the "communities’"
are marked as misspelled. Obviously the word „communities“ is a know one and
the problem is the handling of the possessive apostrophe for plural words
with terminal ‚s‘ - this is a problem in the Aspell dictionary or the Aspell
code. I don’t know if Aspell is able to handle this correctly. (BTW, hunspell
isn’t better on my system.)

I don’t know how to fix it and I think it’s not a task for LyX development.

But I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to fix this for words you’ve added to
your personal word list. Why this? Because the management of word ends and
suffixes is part of the dictionary files and has to be told to the spell checker
engine explicitly. The mechanism of the personal word lists don’t provide any
interface for these subtle details. The only solution I can think of is to
ignore trailing apostrophes in general. Again I don’t know if this would be
correct for english - I’m a native german speaker.

Stephan

This is possible with a little bit more effort.

1. Add "$$f“ as 3rd parameter for your converter call in LyX preferences.
2. Extend your script similar to the following modified version:

===
#!/bin/sh
exec >> "$HOME"/bin/iPadConvert.log
echo $(date)":" "$0" "$@"
filename=$(basename "$1" .tex)
if [ -d "$2" ]; then
   targetdir="$2"
elif [ -f "$2" ]; then
   targetdir=$(dirname "$2")
else
   targetdir="$2"
   if [ ! -d "$2" ]; then
  echo Bad call with target "$2"
  exit 1
   fi
fi
if [ -n "$3" ]; then
   targetname=$(basename "$3" .lyx)
else
   targetname="$(filename)"
fi
echo pwd=$(pwd) filename="$filename"
echo pdflatex "$1" "$targetdir"/"$targetname".pdf
pdflatex "$1" && test -f "$filename".pdf && cp "$filename".pdf 
"$targetdir"/"$targetname".pdf
echo cp "$1" "$targetdir"/"$targetname".tex
cp "$1" "$targetdir"/"$targetname".tex
===

The point is to check for an (optional) 3rd argument to set the targetname like 
the LyX source file name.

Another useful command to see if the mount flags are the culprit: mount. 

To get the configure command processed try: sh configure instead of ./configure

This is working for me:

1. Create a script in "$HOME"/bin named iPadConvert.sh
1a) mkdir -p "$HOME"/bin
1b) vi "$HOME"/bin/iPadConvert.sh
===
#!/bin/sh
exec >> "$HOME"/bin/iPadConvert.log
echo $(date)":" "$0" "$@"
filename=$(basename "$1" .tex)
if [ -d "$2" ]; then 
   targetdir="$2" 
elif [ -f "$2" ]; then
   targetdir=$(dirname "$2")
else
   targetdir="$2"
   if [ ! -d "$2" ]; then
  echo Bad call with target "$2"
  exit 1
   fi
fi
echo pwd=$(pwd) filename="$filename"
echo pdflatex "$1" "$targetdir"/"$filename".pdf 
pdflatex "$1" && test -f "$filename".pdf && cp "$filename".pdf "$targetdir"/
echo cp "$1" "$targetdir"/"$filename".tex
cp "$1" "$targetdir"/"$filename".tex
===
1c) chmod +x "$HOME"/bin/iPadConvert.sh

2. Add $HOME/bin to PATH settings of LyX (at end with colon separator)
=> Preferences => Path
e.g.
/Library/TeX/texbin:/opt/local/teTeX/bin:/opt/local/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:$HOME/bin

3. Add file format and converter
==
\format "ipad" "" "iPad" "" "auto" "" "" „"
\converter "pdflatex" "ipad" "iPadConvert.sh $$i $$r" ""

The culprit is: you need to add the location of your script to LyX’s path

Hi Laura,

the preamble of your document contains these lines

%für deutsche Nomenlatur
\renewcommand{\eqdeclaration}[1]{, siehe Gleichung\nobreakspace(#1)}
\renewcommand{\pagedeclaration}[1]{, Seite\nobreakspace{}#1}
\renewcommand{\nomname}{Nomenklatur}

This is a problem if nomenclature package is not used and should be removed.
If you’ve saved this with „Als Dokument-Voreinstellung speichern“ then you 
should save another version without these lines.

That's the case for a LyX compiled without Hunspell support.

In case of a self compiled LyX install the devel package for hunspell.
Otherwise ask the packager of the LyX package you've installed.

Hi Ilan,

there are many possible answers/suggestions:

1. You can lookup the current temporary in the settings dialog.
It's in the section for the path names.

2. There is the so called Source Pane. There you can see the
live TeX code LyX will produce for the paragraph or the document.

3. You may use one of the Export menu items with "LaTeX" to
place the output in the directory where your LyX file is.

You may create a directory somewhere and assign it as temporary directory
in the settings dialog. LyX creates the temporary files in sub-directories
of this assigned temporary directory after a restart of the LyX application.

Hope this is useful.

It's already reported that the font problems are not solved by disabling SIP.

At the moment, there is no help available, sorry.
There is only the option to wait for the upcoming LyX 2.2 release, AFAIK.

These crashes are difficult to reproduce on a developer system. I had them once 
and the change fixed it. Later I got them again and now they are gone again 
without any change. Sorry, it's not clear what's triggering them. It happens on 
destruction of the LinkBack-machinery on exit of LyX.

I want to give it another try and made a change to address the cause of the 
problem. I can make a LyX 2.1.4 with this change and will be happy if you are 
willing to test it.

I see. The question is a little bit strange. As someone pointed out already
the resolution of the final product doesn't depend on screen resolution.
Is it easy to produce PDFs with math formulas as vector graphics with LyX?

Scott,

I've sent some users a download link for testing and got some positive
feedback. Although it's a little bit too general question to be answered:
"everything works as expected on MBP Retina?"

I can say: yes, the pixelation is gone. It's much better and one never
wants to go back to 2.1.x. There aren't any stability issues, AFAIK.
I cannot tell the performance difference for sure. I'll have to test
this explicitly.

One issue I'm aware is the scaling of icon insets on change of zoom.
But this shouldn't be an issue with HiDPI vs. normal displays.

Yes, my installation failed to update to El Capitan GM. 
I tried it with an external drive and it never completed
the final (?) step after rebooting the system.

So, I couldn't test LyX with it.

Did you install MacTeX already? If you did it after installing
LyX you have to reconfigure LyX. If this doesn't help you have
to check the protocol of the last configure run. You may do so
with enabling the messages in View->Messages and check the output.
Alternatively you may check the contents of the configure.log file.
To find this file you may open the Terminal app and type

$ mdfind -name configure.log

This should print something like

/Users/stephan/Library/Application Support/LyX-2.1/configure.log

This file contains the protocol of the script LyX is using to
check for the availability of the programs you've installed to
produce the final output - including the pdf files.

Hi Sarah,

it would be nice to see the document you've created so far. 
I'm not sure if I'm able to help - but others will be interested
in the example with your problem too.

Perhaps the tutorial is not the best here. If I insert a cross-
reference like you described it I get the text 

"If you want to know more about this document, then see Section 
*2 on the previous page*, which can be found on page."

in Preview. The phrase between the stars is the generated text
of the reference. Obviously the rest of the sentence is nonsense.
