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.

Multiple formatting questions with LyX 1.6.5 - book (Memoir)

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" ?

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