\title before \begin{document}

2010-01-18 Thread Philip Stubbs
Hi,

I have developed my own LaTeX class file, based on the article class.
It has been developed over some time, but is now working just how I
like. My documents start as follows

\documentclass[draft,approved]{danrep}
\title{This is a test report title that I will make quite long.}
\repnum{10-00}
\author{Philip Stubbs}
\date{2010-01-12}
\begin{document}
\section{Introduction}
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse
justo nisi, sagittis pharetra sagittis id,

I now would like to go the next step, and leave vim and use LyX as my
editor. I started looking at the *.layout files to see what I need to
do. What I cant seem to work out is how to place the \title etc before
the \begin{document}

Any suggestions would be welcome. I don't really want to start
chopping about the class file at this stage.

This will be possible in next version (1.7/2.0). For now, you should put
these commands in the document preamble.

The next LyX version will support this structure, but why have you 
chosen to have the title before \begin{document}? I mean the article 
class have it behind \begin{document} and I cannot see the benefit of 
changing this.

There may well be no benefit at all. It is just the way it turned out.
I have been developing my class file for some time. It is more
recently that I decided to try and start using LyX. When I first
started using LaTeX, the hacking made the boring job of writing
reports more fun. Now I am more inclined to want to just do the
report, so I need to streamline the process, but there is no way I
could cope with going back to Word. :-)

Anyhow, since I can't be bothered to wait for version 2.0, I spent a
quick half hour redoing my class file. It looks like I am 95% there,
so will be able to start work on my LyX layout soon.

Thanks for the help.
