Re: How to use thesaurus in Mac OS X

2009-05-13 Thread Xie Chao
Thank you very much Abdelrazak and Bennett.

Is there any shortcut to use Dictionary.app in LyX? I know in coca
applications such as Safari Ctrl+Apple+D works; how can I configure
equivalent shortcut in LyX.
Thank you very much!

 There is a Thesaurus edit box in the LyX 'Path' preferences. You must put
 in the path of your thesaurus file.


 Hum sorry, it seems that this is a 2.0 feature...

Re: Embedding documents/text files in PDF

2009-05-06 Thread Xie Chao
Is it because lyx is trying to compile your file in a temp folder, but the
file you want to attach was not copied over to the temp location, so a
relative path (relative to the actual lyx file, not the temp file) doesn't
work?

I am also new to lyx, so lyxers, please correct me if I am wrong.

Xie Chao

  To be more specific, it doesn’t seem to locate the file when I specify
 relative path in the Lyx file and try converting it to pdflatex. However, if
 the same lyx file is exported to tex format and then converted to pdflatex,
 it works great.



 Any help  will be greatly  appreciated.

 Many thanks to everyone for their responses.



 Xie,



 The `attachfile’ package you suggested works great if I export  lyx file to
 tex format and then convert the tex file to pdflatex. However, if I try
 converting the lyx file  to pdflatex directly, it  throws me an error –
  “pdftex error: cannot open file for embedding” .

 It doesn’t seem to locate the  file. Any pointers on how to resolve this
 would be very helpful.



 Thank you.
