LyX Without LaTeX

2008-04-09 Thread Bruce Pourciau
Elbow problems have begun to make it hard for me to type a long manuscript into LyX. I was thinking that we could install LyX (but not LaTeX) on my secretary's machine, and then she could type the ms into LyX, perhaps typing ff or something whenever there's a formula that would require

Update MacTeX?

I plan to update LyX from 1.4.1 to 1.5.4. Before doing this, should I replace my current MacTeX installation with a new one? If so, do I need to clean house myself or would a new MacTeX install do that for me? Bruce

Export Menu Empty

Not long ago I upgraded to LyX 1.5.4, but when I tried today to export a LyX file as a pdf, the menu File Export listed only one option -- Custom -- and choosing that made LyX quit. Any idea why the various Export options are not appearing? Bruce

Eps and Preview

In LyX 1.3.4, figures in eps format had to be saved without a preview or else LyX would choke. Is this still true in more recent versions of LyX, like 1.5.4? Bruce

I have a long document, containing some mathematics and some graphics, created last year with LyX/Mac 1.3.4 (or perhaps even an earlier version). I have since upgraded to LyX/Mac 1.5.4 and tossed 1.3.4. But now when I open this file in 1.5.4, doing View View PDF (pdflatex) shows a bunch
