Re: "Open Recent". How to extend the limit from 50 to 100?

2020-06-20 Thread typist
OK, and thank you Stephan.

To be clearer about #4 below. A file does not need to be re-opened to populate 
the list I require. For the list has already been populated by the most recent 
files that were opened. And those — the most recently opened — are the files I 
require.

PS: I’ve gotten what I require by also accessing the “Open Recent” list on my 
prior computer.

My thanks again.

"Open Recent". How to extend the limit from 50 to 100?

2020-06-20 Thread typist
Thanks JMarc,

1. Using LyX Version 2.3.5-1 (2 June 2020), I see that the “Maximum last files” 
is 50. (Via Preferences -> Look @ Feel -> User Interface.)

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

3. Can I access that limit?

4. PS: I do not see why a file needs to be opened to populate the list that I 
require??

"Open Recent". How to extend the limit from 50 to 100?

2020-06-18 Thread typist
I’d like to review the last 100 files that I’ve opened. The current LyX limit 
is 50. How might I do this?

Thanks. lyx101

Re: PDF will not format after routine entry

2016-10-15 Thread typist
Here's what I found:

A. I cut back via UNDO until I could get the PDF to format correctly.

B. Then I hit REDO once.

C. I saw that the last UNDO eliminated an equation that had the [PARAGRAPH] 
identifier beside it (on LHS).

D. I thought: Problem solved. But question why it occurred? I often cut some 
math from a text line and paste it into an equation; eg, when I introduce math 
terms in the paragraph before the equation. 

E: So I hit UNDO again; checked PDF formats OK; then began entering new text, 
etc.

F: 20 minutes later, PDF will not format.

G: Repeated procedure  from A-C above and found that I had to UNDO to an OLDER 
equation with [PARAGRAPH] identifier beside it (on LHS).

H. So did E again. Problem is now fixed!

I. Interesting behaviour: that the older PARAGRAPH] [EQUATION] took time to 
trigger?

J. Working OK now, EXCEPT: Maybe my latest BUG report is related; FIND and 
CHANGE in MATH mode triggers BUG-report. Huge report (too big to copy) sent to 
Apple via the Mac system; so I hope it can be recovered from them. I was 
putting hats ^ on some vectors.

PDF will not format after routine entry

2016-10-12 Thread typist
PDF will not format after routine entry. So I went back (using undo) beyond 
that entry. Still receiving similar error message (see below). I typed the 
number 2 and nothing changed : What next please?

Description: \paragraph
*{\textmd{\#4.5. To date, much research on Bell\textquoterig...
I've run across a `}' that doesn't seem to match anything.
For example, `\def\a#1{...}' and `\a}' would produce
this error. If you simply proceed now, the `\par' that
I've just inserted will cause me to report a runaway
argument that might be the root of the problem. But if
your `}' was spurious, just type `2' and it will go away.
