LyX 2.0.2: default viewers when using XeTeX

2012-02-16 Thread Justin Wood
Hi all. It seems that when changing Document: Settings: Font to use non-TeX fonts, LyX will then change the default viewer action to be DVI (LuaTeX). This doesn't work for me as I'm trying to use XeTeX. Is it possible to specify the default viewer in this context? Many thanks, as always.

making \citep the default natbib citation style?

Hi all. The usual apologies for asking a dumb and/or tired question, but I have hunted through the list archive and online in general to no avail. [System: LyX 1.6.5 on Mac OS X 10.6.2] I'm using natbib citation style, set to *author-year*, with a 3rd party style file for Chicago

I've done some more reading of natbib itself (the included pdf) -- it's pretty clear that if natbib is set to *author-year* style, then the standard \cite command behaves as \citet; if set to *numerical *style, \cite behaves as \citep. You can see this in LyX when using natbib under Document ->

LyX user configuration files (and natbib)

Am I right in concluding that LyX will not read a natbib.cfg file placed in the user configuration directory? Is there any other single location where it could be stored, or must it always be located with the source .lyx file? ~:Justin Wood:~ <http://www.murdoch.edu.au/>

instructions for upgrade from LyX 1.6.7 to 2.0 beta 1?

Hi gang. As LyX 2.0 beta 1 is now released, I thought I'd make the switch over (OS X 10.6). It installs and runs fine, but as best I can tell there is no automated import of LyX 1.6.7 settings. Are there any (draft) instructions available for walking the upgrade path? Are there any backwards

I just tested this in LyX 2.0 beta 2 on OS X and it worked fine — after I changed the LyX pipe path (back) to ~/.lyxpipe, which is the default LyZ setting. You could change LyZ alternatively of course. Point being I think it's simply down to the pipe file path matching correctly. 2010/12/6
