windows update error in document (conversion back from PDF to LYX)

2010-04-15 Thread katrine wex
Hey there,
My computer decided to do a windows update last night, and when i oppened the 
computer this morning my lyx documents said format error, plus the newest file 
seems to be lost.
However i have the newest saved as PDF any chance you can convert this back to 
LYX, because theres alot of formulas and stuff so it'll take forever to 
rewrite?? 
I really hope you guys can help me!

Regards
Wex

There's no way to convert PDF to LyX. You can extract the plain text 
from the file, which will help some, but you won't get the formulas in a 
form LyX can use them.


That said, it's a little unclear how a Windows update could cause errors 
in the LyX document format. Can you post one of those files here, or 
send it to me?

I am not on windows, but what about the backup lyx file yourfile.lyx~
If you rename this to yourfileX.lyx
and use it? Under linux this would work.
Or has the open window blown away your lyx~ file too?
