I am writing a book. I sent my publisher a sample of what I had written in LyX (using the koma book template,) and he likes the appearance. But he disagrees with some fonts. He tells me that quotations and URLs should be in italics. Quotations are in default font like blockquotes, and URLs

Centring printing

Hi. I am putting together a family history. My publisher and I both like B5 size pages, but B5 paper is not available in small quantities to practise on. I find that if I write at system default (A4) then reduce it to B5 or A5, only the printing is reduced. I have a small printed area on A4

I am trying to write a family history with LyX. It won't be like a scientific or mathematical treatise, or like a novel. It will be a narrative with photos and other graphics, each with a caption. I have read what the Wiki says about the procedure for inserting floats, and a couple of posts

Endnotes - two questions

2009-02-26 Thread Doug Laidlaw
I am writing a book. 1. Can I have endnotes for each chapter? That seems to have been recommended. IMO, endnotes make the book more readable. In my case, that is important. For a true reference work, I would certainly opt for footnotes, because they are closer to the referring text. 2.
