If I close the file and re-open it from the Open Recent menu, then

I seem to remember discussion of this topic when rc1 was released. It

Can any other Mac users verify this???

Hello James,

Yes, the bugs in the Mac version I reported some time ago (and added
them to the bugtracker after the rc1or rc2 release) still persist.
Hopefully this will be resolved in the final release. By the way even
rc3 seems not to be very stable on my G4 (Lyx crashed while testing out
if the bugs still remain). However, this is not the final candidate and
I'll stick with 1.5.6 for my thesis. When these little problems will be
resolved in 1.6final, I'll switch immediately, as it has some very nice
features.


The problem is that we have only one Mac developer so it's quite 
difficult for us to fix Mac specific bugs.




The strange thing if I remember well the bug with the strange special
menu wasn't there in the early betas before 1.6b4.


Yes, we (I) are aware of that.

Abdel.

Hello,

I've recognized some Problems in both Lyx 1.6b4 and rc1 on MacOS  
10.5 which I would like to report here. I don't know if these are  
bugs and/or platform specific; so here they are:


- When I start Lyx 1.6 and costumize the appearance settings via  
the Preferences... dialogue and then click on the Apply button  
or the Save button, a new item appears in the OSX menu bar  
labelled special with the menu items Preferences, About  
Lyx (both greyed out) and Quit Lyx. In the normal Lyx menu  
Reconfigure now appears two times and Preferences... isn't  
responsive any more. The only solution is to quit and restart Lyx  
via the special menu. Changes of preferences are lost then if you  
clicked Apply only.


- When I open a Lyx file by dragging it on the Lyx icon in the Dock  
the file is opened in an extra window without any toolbars and a  
second window opens with the toolbars in default arrangement (not  
the one costumized) but without any document in it. After this all  
costumized menu bar arrangements and prior window sizes are lost  
when restarting Lyx. The same thing happens when I open a Lyx file  
by doubleclicking on it.


But now some praise: The new autocompletion thing is really great!

Cheers,
Johannes
