Hi Günter,

Yes, I use vertical space for paragraph separation. I tried your workaround,
but Indent separation is ugly, and \usepackage{parskip} still does not
remove the first vertical separation completely, so I reverted back to
vertical space. I'll see the enuitem package for more control.

Dear Richard,

First: thanks, your tricks with openany and setting the Biblio to \smaller
(simply by changing Text style, I feel stupid) provoked a reduction of 10
pages out of 240 :)
For the remaining open questions:

|  a) Changing cross-references links of subsubsection to a 
| nicer section:
|  Is there a command similar to the one for renaming figure 
| captions (see
|  below), in order to have for example subsections 3.4.3.2 
| or section
|  3.4.3.2 instead of subsubsections 3.4.3.2 ?
|  \renewcommand{\f...@figure}{fig.~\thefigure}
| 
| 
| How are you getting the subsubsection... text? I just get 
| numbers for 
| references to subsubsections.

I simply use the standard option Reference and the associated On Page
On Page. The formatted reference and the Reference On Page On Page
do not work, but we have been knowing that for weeks.
I think that my problems comes from this preamble line, that I found
somewhere in a FAQ some months ago:
\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\ref}[1]{\mbox{\autoref{#1

 
|  d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning 
| of sentences:
|  When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a 
| sentence, the
|  cross-reference link is:
|  chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a 
| capital letter:
|  Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
|  Can I correct that?
| 
| 
| Again, what are you using to get these cross-references? If I do a 
| formatted reference to a chapter, I always get caps. If 
| you're using 
| memoir's Cref command, etc, then see the memoir manual for what to do.

See above.


One more question I forgot to ask:
How do you reduce the vertical space, in itemize and enumerate listings,
between the first item and the preceeding paragraph? I tried the following
preamble commands with success only between item lines:
\let\oldenumerate=\enumerate
\def\enumerate{\oldenumerate%
\setlength{\itemsep}{-1pt}\setlength{\parsep}{-1pt}}%
\let\olditemize=\itemize
\def\itemize{\olditemize%
\setlength{\itemsep}{-1pt}
\setlength{\parsep}{-1pt}}%

However, these commands generate an undefined controlled sequence upon
compilation:
\usepackage{setspace}
\let\olditemize=\itemize
\def\itemize{
\olditemize
\setlength{\itemsep}{-0.0ex}
\setstretch{0.8}
}
\let\oldenumerate=\enumerate
\def\enumerate{

Multiple formatting questions with LyX 1.6.5 - book (Memoir)

2010-05-19 Thread Yannick Fournier
Dear LyX community,

First of all thank you for the day to day support you provide through this
mailing-list. I've been writing my thesis for the last 6 months with LyX
1.6.5 in *book (Memoir)*, and I saw a lot of interesting tips.

I have gathered here the questions that arose during my composition. My
apologizes if I've missed something in the FAQ.

a) Changing cross-references links of subsubsection to a nicer section:
Is there a command similar to the one for renaming figure captions (see
below), in order to have for example subsections 3.4.3.2 or section
3.4.3.2 instead of subsubsections 3.4.3.2 ?
\renewcommand{\f...@figure}{fig.~\thefigure}


b) Preventing Appendixes to insert blank pages and centered layout:
I'm inserting my appendix child documents with Input instead of Include
to avoid getting blank pages, but nevertheless the first appendix page has a
centered page number and is always an odd page.
Apart from using article in the document class options, is there a way to
avoid this?


c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


e) Smaller bibliography fonts:
How can I have my bibliography (external BibTek from JabRef) printed in
smaller fonts than the core of the document? For the information formatting
I'm using unsrt and Default (numerical) for citations.

Best regards and many thanks in advance. Feel free to split into multiple
emails if needed.

How are you getting the subsubsection... text? I just get numbers for 
references to subsubsections.

This is standard behavior for a book, since an appendix is really a 
chapter* and so starts on a new page. If it's just the odd page you 
don't want, then use openany as a class option.



c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?



Just go into the index inset and unbold it.


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


Again, what are you using to get these cross-references? If I do a

Don't know this one. I mean, you can do \small or something, but it

Dear LyX community,

First of all thank you for the day to day support you provide through this
mailing-list. I've been writing my thesis for the last 6 months with LyX
1.6.5 in *book (Memoir)*, and I saw a lot of interesting tips.

I have gathered here the questions that arose during my composition. My
apologizes if I've missed something in the FAQ.

a) Changing cross-references links of subsubsection to a nicer section:
Is there a command similar to the one for renaming figure captions (see
below), in order to have for example subsections 3.4.3.2 or section
3.4.3.2 instead of subsubsections 3.4.3.2 ?
\renewcommand{\f...@figure}{fig.~\thefigure}


How are you getting the subsubsection... text? I just get numbers for 
references to subsubsections.



b) Preventing Appendixes to insert blank pages and centered layout:
I'm inserting my appendix child documents with Input instead of Include
to avoid getting blank pages, but nevertheless the first appendix page has a
centered page number and is always an odd page.
Apart from using article in the document class options, is there a way to
avoid this?


This is standard behavior for a book, since an appendix is really a 
chapter* and so starts on a new page. If it's just the odd page you 
don't want, then use openany as a class option.



c) Index entries use the formatting of the core text, i.e. a bold list entry
gets bold in the index too: can we prevent this ?



Just go into the index inset and unbold it.


d) Capital letters for cross-reference links at beginning of sentences:
When I make reference to a chapter at the beginning of a sentence, the
cross-reference link is:
chapter 2 discusses blablabla, instead of having a capital letter:
Chapter 2 discusses blablabla
Can I correct that?


Again, what are you using to get these cross-references? If I do a 
formatted reference to a chapter, I always get caps. If you're using 
memoir's Cref command, etc, then see the memoir manual for what to do.



e) Smaller bibliography fonts:
How can I have my bibliography (external BibTek from JabRef) printed in
smaller fonts than the core of the document? For the information formatting
I'm using unsrt and Default (numerical) for citations.


Don't know this one. I mean, you can do \small or something, but it 
can get reset.

Opening LyX-2.0 Files in LyX-1.6.5

2010-03-24 Thread Jack Desert
I found myself wanting to open the same document sometimes in LyX 2.0
and sometimes in LyX 1.6.5. Oh sure, a LyX 1.6.5 document opens fine
in LyX 2.0, but I ran into an error when trying open a LyX 2.0
document in LyX 1.6.5.  

So I did a little experimentation. I copied the LyX 2.0 lyx/lib/lyx2lyx
folder into the LyX 1.6.5 lyx/lib/ directory. Then recompiled LyX 1.6.5.
Voilá. Now I can open the same file with either version of LyX. Am I
violating any taboo here? Does this void the LyX warranty?

Of course, because LyX 2.0 is not released, so you cannot expect that 
the stable LyX 1.6.5 will understand files created with a version that 
is in alpha-state (not feature complete and with lots of crashes).


In general, don't use development previews of LyX 2.0 for any real-life 
document, only for testing!


Once LyX 2.0 is finally released, the last LyX 1.6.x version will 
support files created with LyX 2.0.

This is normal. The lyx2lyx script shipped with 1.6.5 converts PRIOR 
formats to the 1.6 format and vice versa. The version of lyx2lyx 
presently in trunk will convert *any* (existing) format to any other

 Thanks for your help.

 I think that the indication that the Bera fonts are not installed is just a
 symptom of a deeper problem; I appear to have lost all font control. No
 matter what fonts I choose, I get a pdf that has the default LaTeX fonts.
 Something is badly screwed up in my TeX installation; I'm going to get rid
 of it and start over.

 Your comments were still useful; I learned several things about trouble
 shooting my installation.

 -=- Rich


Well, there is nothing wrong with my TeX installation. I've been using
TeXShop to work directly in LaTeX and also to typeset LyX documents that I
have exported to LaTeX. All the fonts and utilities are available that are
supposed to be.

There were two things wrong with my LyX 1.6.5 installation, both easy to
correct once I understood what was going on.

Somehow these lines got into the preamble I've been using:

% set fonts for nicer pdf view

\IfFileExists{lmodern.sty}{\usepackage{lmodern}}{}

\fi % end if pdflatex is used


When I used pdflatex to typeset a document, these lines were substituting
Latin Modern for any fonts I was choosing in Lyx.


The second problem is that LyX was showing the Bera fonts as 'not
installed', even though they are and I can use them to typeset a document
(once I had figured out and corrected the first problem). For some reason,
LyX is not adding the correct information to the packages.lst file (which on
OS X is in ~/Library/Application Support/LyX-1.6/), even though the
configure.log file shows that the reconfigure procedure is correctly seeing
that the Bera fonts are installed and available. So I just added a line with
the word 'bera' to the packages.lst file and the 'not installed' message
went away.

Somehow these lines got into the preamble I've been using:

% set fonts for nicer pdf view

\IfFileExists{lmodern.sty}{\usepackage{lmodern}}{}

\fi % end if pdflatex is used


When I used pdflatex to typeset a document, these lines were substituting
Latin Modern for any fonts I was choosing in Lyx.


The second problem is that LyX was showing the Bera fonts as 'not
installed', even though they are and I can use them to typeset a document
(once I had figured out and corrected the first problem). For some reason,
LyX is not adding the correct information to the packages.lst file (which on
OS X is in ~/Library/Application Support/LyX-1.6/), even though the
configure.log file shows that the reconfigure procedure is correctly seeing
that the Bera fonts are installed and available. So I just added a line with
the word 'bera' to the packages.lst file and the 'not installed' message
went away.

You do it right - but this setting only works for normal pages.
It does not apply to title pages or chapter pages.

If your one-page document has a title or starts with a chapter
heading, then you might get another pagestyle meant for such pages.
It can be overridden with an TeX box with the command 
\thispagestyle{empty} inside.

LyX 1.6.5 claims Bera fonts not installed

2010-03-17 Thread Richard Talley
I had been running LyX 1.6.3 with MacTeX 2008 under OS X 10.5.x and created
a number of documents using the three Bera fonts.

Recently, I downloaded, installed and updated MacTeX 2009. I also grabbed
the MacTeXtras; it came with LyX 1.6.5 so I installed that also.

Now LyX doesn't see that the Bera fonts are available (they show as 'not
installed' in Documents - Settings - Fonts). If I switch back to MacTeX
2008 (which I have not uninstalled but would like too) and reconfigure LyX,
these fonts still show as not installed.

MacTeX 2008 and 2009 most definitely do come with the Bera fonts installed;
all the correct files appear to be there.

I really need to convince LyX 1.6.5 that these fonts are indeed installed
and available, as I need to re-edit some documents and have them print using
the same standards that I was already using for this series of documents.
(And yes, I did re-run 'sudo texhash', just in case, and ran the
LyX-installer that comes on the LyX-1.6.5-Mac-Universal.dmg.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I haven't yet downgraded to LyX 1.6.3;
I guess that might be my next step in troubleshooting.

Thanks,

-- Rich

Suppressing page numbers in lyx 1.6.5

2010-03-17 Thread Jim Rockford
I'm running Lyx on Windoze 7 (64bit).  I was under the impression that the
following document style setting will suppress page numbers:

Document -- Settings -- Page Layout -- Headings Style -- empty

However, in the single-page document (article style) that I'm currently
working on, I still get the page number 1 at the bottom of the page when I
generate the PDF.  Am I doing something wrong?  Are there alternative
methods for suppressing page numbers?

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for your help.

I think that the indication that the Bera fonts are not installed is just a
symptom of a deeper problem; I appear to have lost all font control. No
matter what fonts I choose, I get a pdf that has the default LaTeX fonts.
Something is badly screwed up in my TeX installation; I'm going to get rid
of it and start over.

Your comments were still useful; I learned several things about trouble
shooting my installation.

You're doing it correctly, and it should work (works fine for me here).  You
might try View  View Source, click the option for complete source, and verify
that \pagestyle{empty} shows up early in the LaTeX code. Other than that, is
there anything funky in your preamble that might be overriding the page style
command?

LyX 1.6.5 claims Bera fonts not installed

2010-03-17 Thread Richard Talley
I had been running LyX 1.6.3 with MacTeX 2008 under OS X 10.5.x and created
a number of documents using the three Bera fonts.

Recently, I downloaded, installed and updated MacTeX 2009. I also grabbed
the MacTeXtras; it came with LyX 1.6.5 so I installed that also.

Now LyX doesn't see that the Bera fonts are available (they show as 'not
installed' in Documents - Settings - Fonts). If I switch back to MacTeX
2008 (which I have not uninstalled but would like too) and reconfigure LyX,
these fonts still show as not installed.

MacTeX 2008 and 2009 most definitely do come with the Bera fonts installed;
all the correct files appear to be there.

I really need to convince LyX 1.6.5 that these fonts are indeed installed
and available, as I need to re-edit some documents and have them print using
the same standards that I was already using for this series of documents.
(And yes, I did re-run 'sudo texhash', just in case, and ran the
LyX-installer that comes on the LyX-1.6.5-Mac-Universal.dmg.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I haven't yet downgraded to LyX 1.6.3;
I guess that might be my next step in troubleshooting.

Thanks,

-- Rich

LyX 1.6.5 claims Bera fonts not installed

2010-03-17 Thread Richard Talley
I had been running LyX 1.6.3 with MacTeX 2008 under OS X 10.5.x and created
a number of documents using the three Bera fonts.

Recently, I downloaded, installed and updated MacTeX 2009. I also grabbed
the MacTeXtras; it came with LyX 1.6.5 so I installed that also.

Now LyX doesn't see that the Bera fonts are available (they show as 'not
installed' in Documents -> Settings -> Fonts). If I switch back to MacTeX
2008 (which I have not uninstalled but would like too) and reconfigure LyX,
these fonts still show as not installed.

MacTeX 2008 and 2009 most definitely do come with the Bera fonts installed;
all the correct files appear to be there.

I really need to convince LyX 1.6.5 that these fonts are indeed installed
and available, as I need to re-edit some documents and have them print using
the same standards that I was already using for this series of documents.
(And yes, I did re-run 'sudo texhash', just in case, and ran the
LyX-installer that comes on the LyX-1.6.5-Mac-Universal.dmg.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I haven't yet downgraded to LyX 1.6.3;
I guess that might be my next step in troubleshooting.

Suppressing page numbers in lyx 1.6.5

2010-03-17 Thread Jim Rockford
I'm running Lyx on Windoze 7 (64bit).  I was under the impression that the
following document style setting will suppress page numbers:

Document --> Settings --> Page Layout --> Headings Style --> empty

However, in the single-page document (article style) that I'm currently
working on, I still get the page number 1 at the bottom of the page when I
generate the PDF.  Am I doing something wrong?  Are there alternative
methods for suppressing page numbers?

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for your help.

I think that the indication that the Bera fonts are not installed is just a
symptom of a deeper problem; I appear to have lost all font control. No
matter what fonts I choose, I get a pdf that has the default LaTeX fonts.
Something is badly screwed up in my TeX installation; I'm going to get rid
of it and start over.

Your comments were still useful; I learned several things about trouble
shooting my installation.

You're doing it correctly, and it should work (works fine for me here).  You
might try View > View Source, click the option for complete source, and verify
that \pagestyle{empty} shows up early in the LaTeX code. Other than that, is
there anything funky in your preamble that might be overriding the page style
command?

  This option supress the headers and footers.
  For page number supress you need to add on the preamble:
 \pagestyle{empty}

Repeated crashes in lyx 1.6.5 and 1.6.6SVN

2010-03-12 Thread stefano franchi
I have been  experiencing a lot of crashes in the last couple of weeks.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to identify the exact pattern. They mostly
happen during simple operations like erasing a line, or erasing back from a
standard paragraph into a (sub)section environment. Yesterday I  compiled
the SVN branch, just to see if the situation would improve. It didn't. I got
a crash within five minutes. The sequence of operations was something like:
Open old file, Create a new file, cut and past  title from old file into
new, add author, backspace from author into title, Crash. I appended below
what I found in the console. I have no idea if the sequence of
TocModel.cpp(): type not found: statements is relevant to the crash, but I
do see a lot of them being spitted out to console whenever I am in Lyx
(1.6.5, I mean). I should add that I always keep the TOC sidebar open.

This is what I found in the console:

 Yes, it's http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6522.

 There is a problem with updating the outliner. I didn't really follow this
 issue, but LyX crashes. A work-around is to not use the outliner :(.



It looks like that one! Although the original submitter states it can only
happen with the TOC on the left, while I always have mine on the right side.

But  it should have been fixed in branch 2 days ago, if I read the log

I guess I'll have to use the workaround, even though my productivity drops
without a working outliner.

No, it has only been fixed in trunk, not yet in branch. 

With a text editor, you can change the source yourself (but only if it
is trivial to backport the code).
