Make longtable table captions single space?

2008-05-31 Thread Adrian Peter
Hi,

I am using the longtable instructions on in the Embedded Ojbects doc.  The
only problem I am having is that the caption for the longtable is coming out
double space rather than single.  I know this is probably due to the fact
that caption is put in as a hack into the first row of the longtable and it
must be inheriting the formating from the main document (which is double
space).  I tried to surround the text inside the caption with a
\begin{singlespace) and \end{singlespace}.  But this causes two weird
behaviors:
1.) There is a line break (which I don't want) after the table number before
the rest of caption text, i.e. it reads like:
Table 2-1.
   This the table tile.
   xxx

2. ) There is double space between the end of the caption and the start of
the actual table.  I would also like this to be single space.  Thank you in
advance.

Hi all,

I apologise that this is a trivial question that would probably be 
answered with just a little digging.


One of the examiners of my thesis decided that the figure and table 
captions were too small, so I was wondering what the best way of 
making them bigger. Currently they are the same font size as the 
text. If there is no easy way I will just spend the same time making 
up a reason that this is the appropriate size for captions.

Hi,

Captions  should usually be smaller than standard text and most  templates
enforce this. Yet, anyone who makes a big fuss over it is most likely dis-
tracted by unimportant detail. Either way, the naive solution:

* Highlight the caption text

* Go to the Layout menu item

* Open the Character... window

* Change size to Small or Smaller

* Press Apply/OK

If  you built your document in a way whereby captions can be distinguished
from  text (perhaps a float caption), then you can modify the style appro-
priately  in the Preamble. LaTeX is not a strong skill of mine, so I can't
give  you  a snippet of code. This rids you from the need to  change  many
captions repeatedly with the risk of forgetting to change a few.

Hope it helps,

Roy

Use the LaTeX-package caption. In your case add for example the

Since I'm not sure that this answer addresses making the figure larger, I
will mention \scalebox discussed in oldish LaTeX Graphics Companion.

and http://www.ccrnp.ncifcrf.gov/~toms/latexforbeginners.html /Advanced

To make figures using LaTeX2e, before your \begin{document} put
\usepackage{graphics}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{floatfig}
Then call the graphics directly like this:
\includegraphics*{fig/logowalker.ps}
or inside a figure:
\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\scalebox
{0.9} % h_length
{
\includegraphics*{fig/logowalker.ps}
}
\end{center}
\caption{
The caption
}
\label{fig.logowalker}
\end{figure}
The wrapfig and floatfig packages are very cool - they let you wrap figures 
around text. Between paragaphs:

\begin{floatingfigure}{7 cm}
\scalebox{0.6}{
\includegraphics*[140,270][450,640]{fig/t7-wt-ex.ps}
}
\caption{Sequence logos for T7 promoters.
Top: wild type promoters \cite{Schneider1986};
bottom: strong T7 promoters found by an
\emph{in vivo} genetic screen \cite{Schneider1989}.
}
\noindent \hrulefill
\label{fig.t7-wt-ex}
\end{floatingfigure}
Wrap figure looks like this:
\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{12cm}
\begin{center}
\rotatebox{-90}{
\scalebox
{0.57} % h_length
{
% Note: the * makes the graphic be clipped - this is needed!!
% Guide to Latex p. 168
\includegraphics*[50,110][540,695]{fig/baseflipcover.ps}
}
}
\end{center}
\caption{---http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/LaTeX/AoPS_L_PictMan.php
In this section we'll discuss how you can manipulate images in 
.ViewportSpacing Scaling - \scalebox{horizontal factor}[vertical 
factor]{item scaled}Resizing - \resizebox{horizontal factor}{vertical 
factor}{item resized}Rotating - \rotatebox{angle of rotation}{item 
rotated}Reflecting - \reflectbox{item reflected} Centering - \begin{center} 
centered items 
\end{center} -http://www.xfig.org/userman/latex_and_xfig.html1.. 
Get LaTeX to change the size of the picture, using either \scalebox or 
\resizebox. These are general functions for scaling text or pictures from 
the graphics package: A.\scalebox{factor}{object} Will scale the object by 
any factor. Factor is just a number ( 1 = reduction;  1 = enlargement) 
Object is normally some text or graphics B.\scalebox{2}{ 
\input{file.pstex_t} } will scale the picture by 2, dependent on driver (.ps 
works, but xdvi wont). Scaling bitmap fonts may produce ugly results, so try 
and avoid them! C.\resizebox{width}{ht} {stuff} will resize stuff to be of 
size width x ht. Using ! as an argument retains the aspect ratio of the 
box. eg \resizebox{5cm}{!}{fat cat} will make fat cat appear 5 cm wide, 
and suitably high. (From p129, Lamport)

increase size of figure and table captions

2005-12-04 Thread Matthew.Kelly
Hi all,

I apologise that this is a trivial question that would probably be answered 
with just a little digging.

One of the examiners of my thesis decided that the figure and table captions 
were too small, so I was wondering what the best way of making them bigger. 
Currently they are the same font size as the text. If there is no easy way I 
will just spend the same time making up a reason that this is the appropriate 
size for captions.

Moving table captions within a float

2004-02-21 Thread Rich Shepard
  I placed all table captions _under_ the tables, just as I have with figure
captions. Reviewing the publisher's specifications I see that they want
table captions _above_ the table.

  What is the most efficient (and safest) way to change the position of the
caption? Do I just cut it all and paste it before the table, or is there a
better way?

Thanks,

Rich

Table captions alignment

How can I get the table captions aligned left in a table float ? 
\usepackage[nooneline]{caption2} in the preamble do not work, because I want

 Hello:
 Thanks to Matej, Thomas, and Herbert and others for answering my questions.
 However, I am still struggling with some of my original problems.  Any other
 suggestions or remarks?
 
 Concerning my second question: I would like to get rid of the default
 justification for text in a table column.  Is there a way to do this without
 having to enter the \rightragged tex command in every single cell of the
 table?  I would like to have my text \rightragged, but I cannot find a way
 to set the whole table (or even whole column) that way at once.  Is there a
 global solution?,

Yes. Put the following lines in the preamble:

\usepackage{array}
\def\PBS#1{\let\temp=\\#1\let\\=\temp}
\newcolumntype{P}[1]{{\PBS\raggedright}p{#1}}

Then, for each column in the table, after entering the width in the width
field, (e.g. 2in), put the text P{2in} in the special alignment field.

 Concerning my third question: Some rows of my table are intended to fall on
 two lines.  One solution in the Lyx guide is to actually use two rows, but I
 don't want to do that.  The other solution listed doesn't seem to work for
 me.  It says to enter a \\ at the needed text break and then check the
 linebreaks button on the table format popup.  I cant find any linebreaks
 button.  If I just type in \\, it starts an entire new row from scratch,
 and does not just move the intended second line down below the intended
 first line in the column. Where is the linebreaks button, or what else am I
 doing wrong?

The Userguide is somewhat obsolete. If you want a linebreak just press
ctrl+enter.

 Concerning my fourth question: Is there an easy way to select text and then
 format it all in caps (not small caps, or whatever is listed in the
 character popup), or as title caps (first word capitalized)?

This is a problem in LyX as latex accepts it. The solution:
Write a dummy length in the width field, e.g. 1in, and then in the special

In fact, you can use
  \newcolumntype{P}[1]{{\PBS\raggedright}p{#1\linewidth}}

?s with table captions, table text justification, double rows, math cases and more

2001-11-12 Thread John Boik

Hello:
I am new to the world of Lyx, LaTex, and Linux, but am learning fast.  After
only a week with all three I am most of the way though writing my first
journal article using Lyx.  But, I've run across several snags that I'm
hoping someone can help me with.  The list is a little long since I am so
new...sorry about that.  I have scanned the help files, email list archive,
and two books on LaTex, but with no luck.

First, I would like to use a different font family (sans serif rather than
times) for table captions.  Is there a global way to set this?  I know there
is an easy way to globally change the size of the font by using a certain
caption package, but I want to change the family, not the size.

Second, I would like to get rid of the default justification for text in a
table column.  Is there a way to do this without having to enter the
\rightragged tex command in every single cell of the table?  I would like to
have my text \rightragged, but I cannot find a way to set the whole table
(or even whole column) that way at once.  Is there a global solution?

Third, some rows of my table are intended to fall on two lines.  One
solution in the Lyx guide is to actually use two rows, but I don't want to
do that.  The other solution listed doesn't seem to work for me.  It says to
enter a \\ at the needed text break and then check the linebreaks button
on the table format popup.  I cant find any linebreaks button.  If I just
type in \\, it starts an entire new row from scratch, and does not just
move the intended second line down below the intended first line in the
column. Where is the linebreaks button, or what else am I doing wrong?

Fourth, is there an easy way to select text and then format it all in caps
(not small caps, or whatever is listed in the character popup), or as title
caps (first word capitalized)?

Fifth, is there any easy way to automatically have a table span exactly the
width of the paper?  I understand the tabularx package does not work with
Lyx (or if it does I do not know how to use it).  I would like to have the
table fit the page, and then have certain columns larger or smaller than
others.

Sixth, I have a new command that I put in the preamble that inserts the
microgram symbol (the Greek micro and the roman g) if I type in \mg.  It is:

\newcommand{\mg}{$\mu$g }

It allows me to easily type in, for example, 70 ug.  But, when the
paragraphs are justified, Lyx does not know to keep the 70 next to the ug
symbol and the space looks funny.  Is there a way to keep the two next to
each other?

Seventh, and this one might be the hardest, when I use the \begin{cases} and
\end{cases} command in the math mode, I cannot figure how to make the two
cases split lines vertically or how to make the left part (the equation)
horizontally space itself away from the right part (the cases).  Here is an
example of my command:

Y=\begin {cases}10+k\text {if}\, k=1 \text{and}\cr 20+k\text {if}k=2.\end
{cases}

I use the \cr above because I could not get the correct command \\ to type
in during math mode.  But, although \cr will properly split the cases onto
two lines, every time I close the file and reopen it, it gives me an error
when sending to postscript and I have to retype the \begin{case} and
\end{case} commands again.  How strange.  Is there a way to send the \\
command in math mode to properly split the cases onto two lines?  Also, the
 character is supposed to move the case text (e.g., if K=1 and) to the
right.  However, all it does is literally print out the  symbol so that
it reads 10+kif K=1 and.  Is there a way to get Lyx to properly
left-right split the cases from the equation proper?

Eighth and last, I would like to use BibTex for my references, and I
understand how to import the citation into Lyx, but I don't know how to
start BibTex in the first place to enter a list of references.  If I go to
the command line and type in BibTex, it tells me it needs an argument.
The help command doesn't tell me much either that I can understand.  If I
try to make a new bib file by typing in BibTex foo, it tells me that it
cannot open file name 'foo.aux'.  How does one start BibTex to make a new
file?

I think the Lyx program is wonderful in that I love the wysiwym ability.
I'm sure there are many improvements being planned and worked on.  One
suggestion, which might be a hard one, would be to have it natively save its
files in *.tex format and do all the conversion behind the scenes.  That
way, one could just email in the *.tex file to a journal for publication.  I
know that there is an export function, but I think I read that it is 95% or
so accurate in conveying the full meaning of what was typeset in Lyx.  If
this is true (is it?), then that 5% might be some crucial part of the
manuscript and the author could miss the error if he/she was not careful in
proof reading before sending the article off for publication.  Also, having
it in *.tex format would allow easy sharing of files with other

Use a protected space (Ctrl-SPACE).

No, the export is 100% accurate (more or less). It is the import which

 Also, having it in *.tex format would allow easy sharing of files
 with other collaborators who are using LaTex but not Lyx. 

Well, not really. Unless the formatting of the tex-file is kept (which
cannot be done), exchanging files with TeX purists is always a bit
difficult. Export and import is a way of communicating this to the
user :-)

NO! Justification is exactly the most strong aspect of TeX (and
LaTeX therefore) -- it makes the stuff much better than any other
commercial program used for typesetting (except for Adobe
InDesign, but not for their PageMaker). The only other exception
which makes it as well as TeX is lout (and only because the
author copied the algorithm from TeX). Why do you think so many
high-tech professional publishing houses use TeX for their work?

 Yes, this can be done using LaTeX. You can specify the column

You can use \linewidth as a unit (so, .55\linewidth is a legal

 BibTeX databases are just text files. You can write them with
 your favourite editor, or you use one of the several special
 programs for BibTeX files.

Try to read btxdoc.dvi in your distribution of TeX. Hint: program
called bibtex is called automagically by LyX when needed. It just
process records from your .bib file in the form which is needed
by LaTeX. BibTeX databases are really just a text files to be
written (try bibtex-mode in Emacs, or pybibliographer in GNOME).
They consists from records like this one:

@article{coleman:AJS-1988-S95,
  author =   {James S. Coleman},
  title ={Social Capital in the Creation of Human Capital},
  journal =  {American Journal of Sociology},
  year = 1988,
  volume =   94,
  pages ={S95-S120}
 }

but you need to read more about them. Try above mentioned .dvi
file and an Emacs mode -- although I really hate EMACS, this is
the only part of it, which I used for a couple of years with huge
satisfaction.

  I know that there is an export function, but I think I read
  that it is 95% or so accurate in conveying the full meaning

 No, the export is 100% accurate (more or less). It is the
 import which not infallible. 

The export into LaTeX is done everytime you hit Ctrl-D for
previewing your document in xdvi, there it MUST be and it IS 100%
accurate.

  Also, having it in *.tex format would allow easy sharing of
  files with other collaborators who are using LaTex but not
  Lyx. 

As said above, export to .tex is 100% accurate, so there is
nothing preventing you from sharing your files with the rest of
the world. The only problem is that your friends will find some
of the .tex files slightly confusing (because humans do it
better), but of course .dvi/.ps output is 100% same as the
document you would write in plain LaTeX (just, it takes less time
to do it in LyX :-).

?s with table captions, table text justification, double rows, math cases and more

2001-11-12 Thread John Boik

Hello:
I am new to the world of Lyx, LaTex, and Linux, but am learning fast.  After
only a week with all three I am most of the way though writing my first
journal article using Lyx.  But, I've run across several snags that I'm
hoping someone can help me with.  The list is a little long since I am so
new...sorry about that.  I have scanned the help files, email list archive,
and two books on LaTex, but with no luck.

First, I would like to use a different font family (sans serif rather than
times) for table captions.  Is there a global way to set this?  I know there
is an easy way to globally change the size of the font by using a certain
caption package, but I want to change the family, not the size.

Second, I would like to get rid of the default justification for text in a
table column.  Is there a way to do this without having to enter the
\rightragged tex command in every single cell of the table?  I would like to
have my text \rightragged, but I cannot find a way to set the whole table
(or even whole column) that way at once.  Is there a global solution?

Third, some rows of my table are intended to fall on two lines.  One
solution in the Lyx guide is to actually use two rows, but I don't want to
do that.  The other solution listed doesn't seem to work for me.  It says to
enter a \\ at the needed text break and then check the linebreaks button
on the table format popup.  I cant find any linebreaks button.  If I just
type in \\, it starts an entire new row from scratch, and does not just
move the intended second line down below the intended first line in the
column. Where is the linebreaks button, or what else am I doing wrong?

Fourth, is there an easy way to select text and then format it all in caps
(not small caps, or whatever is listed in the character popup), or as title
caps (first word capitalized)?

Fifth, is there any easy way to automatically have a table span exactly the
width of the paper?  I understand the tabularx package does not work with
Lyx (or if it does I do not know how to use it).  I would like to have the
table fit the page, and then have certain columns larger or smaller than
others.

Sixth, I have a new command that I put in the preamble that inserts the
microgram symbol (the Greek micro and the roman g) if I type in \mg.  It is:

\newcommand{\mg}{$\mu$g }

It allows me to easily type in, for example, 70 ug.  But, when the
paragraphs are justified, Lyx does not know to keep the 70 next to the ug
symbol and the space looks funny.  Is there a way to keep the two next to
each other?

Seventh, and this one might be the hardest, when I use the \begin{cases} and
\end{cases} command in the math mode, I cannot figure how to make the two
cases split lines vertically or how to make the left part (the equation)
horizontally space itself away from the right part (the cases).  Here is an
example of my command:

Y=\begin {cases}10+k\text {if}\, k=1 \text{and}\cr 20+k\text {if}k=2.\end
{cases}

I use the \cr above because I could not get the correct command \\ to type
in during math mode.  But, although \cr will properly split the cases onto
two lines, every time I close the file and reopen it, it gives me an error
when sending to postscript and I have to retype the \begin{case} and
\end{case} commands again.  How strange.  Is there a way to send the \\
command in math mode to properly split the cases onto two lines?  Also, the
 character is supposed to move the case text (e.g., if K=1 and) to the
right.  However, all it does is literally print out the  symbol so that
it reads 10+kif K=1 and.  Is there a way to get Lyx to properly
left-right split the cases from the equation proper?

Eighth and last, I would like to use BibTex for my references, and I
understand how to import the citation into Lyx, but I don't know how to
start BibTex in the first place to enter a list of references.  If I go to

Use a protected space (Ctrl-SPACE).

BibTeX databases are just text files. You can write them with your
favourite editor, or you use one of the several special programs for
BibTeX files.

 One suggestion, which might be a hard one, would be to have it
 natively save its files in *.tex format and do all the conversion
 behind the scenes.

Yes, it would be nice, but LyX is not going this way. 

 I know that there is an export function, but I think I read that it
 is 95% or so accurate in conveying the full meaning of what was
 typeset in Lyx. 

No, the export is 100% accurate (more or less). It is the import which
not infallible. 

 Also, having it in *.tex format would allow easy sharing of files
 with other collaborators who are using LaTex but not Lyx. 

Well, not really. Unless the formatting of the tex-file is kept (which
cannot be done), exchanging files with TeX purists is always a bit
difficult. Export and import is a way of communicating this to the
user :-)

 Yes, this can be done using LaTeX. You can specify the column

You can use \linewidth as a unit (so, .55\linewidth is a legal

 BibTeX databases are just text files. You can write them with
 your favourite editor, or you use one of the several special
 programs for BibTeX files.

Try to read btxdoc.dvi in your distribution of TeX. Hint: program
called bibtex is called automagically by LyX when needed. It just
process records from your .bib file in the form which is needed
by LaTeX. BibTeX databases are really just a text files to be
written (try bibtex-mode in Emacs, or pybibliographer in GNOME).
They consists from records like this one:

@article{coleman:AJS-1988-S95,
  author =   {James S. Coleman},
  title ={Social Capital in the Creation of Human Capital},
  journal =  {American Journal of Sociology},
  year = 1988,
  volume =   94,
  pages ={S95-S120}
 }

?s with table captions, table text justification, double rows, math cases and more

2001-11-12 Thread John Boik

Hello:
I am new to the world of Lyx, LaTex, and Linux, but am learning fast.  After
only a week with all three I am most of the way though writing my first
journal article using Lyx.  But, I've run across several snags that I'm
hoping someone can help me with.  The list is a little long since I am so
new...sorry about that.  I have scanned the help files, email list archive,
and two books on LaTex, but with no luck.

First, I would like to use a different font family (sans serif rather than
times) for table captions.  Is there a global way to set this?  I know there
is an easy way to globally change the size of the font by using a certain
caption package, but I want to change the family, not the size.

Second, I would like to get rid of the default justification for text in a
table column.  Is there a way to do this without having to enter the
\rightragged tex command in every single cell of the table?  I would like to
have my text \rightragged, but I cannot find a way to set the whole table
(or even whole column) that way at once.  Is there a global solution?

Third, some rows of my table are intended to fall on two lines.  One
solution in the Lyx guide is to actually use two rows, but I don't want to
do that.  The other solution listed doesn't seem to work for me.  It says to
enter a "\\" at the needed text break and then check the "linebreaks" button
on the table format popup.  I cant find any "linebreaks" button.  If I just
type in "\\", it starts an entire new row from scratch, and does not just
move the intended second line down below the intended first line in the
column. Where is the linebreaks button, or what else am I doing wrong?

Fourth, is there an easy way to select text and then format it all in caps
(not small caps, or whatever is listed in the character popup), or as title
caps (first word capitalized)?

Fifth, is there any easy way to automatically have a table span exactly the
width of the paper?  I understand the tabularx package does not work with
Lyx (or if it does I do not know how to use it).  I would like to have the
table fit the page, and then have certain columns larger or smaller than
others.

Sixth, I have a new command that I put in the preamble that inserts the
microgram symbol (the Greek micro and the roman g) if I type in \mg.  It is:

\newcommand{\mg}{$\mu$g }

It allows me to easily type in, for example, 70 ug.  But, when the
paragraphs are justified, Lyx does not know to keep the 70 next to the ug
symbol and the space looks funny.  Is there a way to keep the two next to
each other?

Seventh, and this one might be the hardest, when I use the \begin{cases} and
\end{cases} command in the math mode, I cannot figure how to make the two
cases split lines vertically or how to make the left part (the equation)
horizontally space itself away from the right part (the cases).  Here is an
example of my command:

Y=\begin {cases}10+k&\text {if}\, k=1 \text{and}\cr 20+k&\text {if}k=2.\end
{cases}

I use the \cr above because I could not get the correct command "\\" to type
in during math mode.  But, although \cr will properly split the cases onto
two lines, every time I close the file and reopen it, it gives me an error
when sending to postscript and I have to retype the \begin{case} and
\end{case} commands again.  How strange.  Is there a way to send the "\\"
command in math mode to properly split the cases onto two lines?  Also, the
"&" character is supposed to move the case text (e.g., "if K=1 and") to the
right.  However, all it does is literally print out the "&" symbol so that
it reads "10+k K=1 and".  Is there a way to get Lyx to properly
left-right split the cases from the equation proper?

Eighth and last, I would like to use BibTex for my references, and I
understand how to import the citation into Lyx, but I don't know how to
start BibTex in the first place to enter a list of references.  If I go to
the command line and type in "BibTex", it tells me it needs an argument.

try to make a new bib file by typing in "BibTex foo", it tells me that it
cannot open file name 'foo.aux'.  How does one start BibTex to make a new
file?

I think the Lyx program is wonderful in that I love the wysiwym ability.
I'm sure there are many improvements being planned and worked on.  One
suggestion, which might be a hard one, would be to have it natively save its
files in *.tex format and do all the conversion behind the scenes.  That
way, one could just email in the *.tex file to a journal for publication.  I
know that there is an export function, but I think I read that it is 95% or
so accurate in conveying the full meaning of what was typeset in Lyx.  If
this is true (is it?), then that 5% might be some crucial part of the
manuscript and the author could miss the error if he/she wa

I use the Gnome BibTeX Editor (gBib) which has a nice interface with LyX

Figure and Table captions ignore line space settings

2001-05-21 Thread Herbert Voss

you can try the following in latex preamble:

\usepackage{setspace}
\newcommand\mySpacing{2} %  change it to whatever you need
\let\myCaption\caption
\renewcommand\caption[2]{%
  \setstretch{\mySpacing}%
  \myCaption{#1}{#2}%
}

and as first line in text in tex(red)
\setstretch{\mySpacing}

Figure and Table captions ignore line space settings

2001-05-20 Thread Ramon Felciano

Hi --

For some reason my figures and tables are ignoring the line space settings
used by the rest of my dissertation. Do these need to be controlled
independently, or is there something misconfigured in my settings?

Thanks!

Ramon

Table captions

1999-07-29 Thread Nuno Guerra

Dear Lyx users,

Perhaps you can help me with these 2 questions:

The space left between the table caption and the table is a little small
for my taste. I know how to change this for each caption, but is there a
way to make a certain distance be the default setting?

Is there a way to limit the width of a caption? Sometimes, if the table
width is small and the caption is long, it doesn't look good.

I'm using version 1.0.3. Thank you in advance for your help.
