Hi y'all, what helped popularize git in my research group was undoubtably to ninja into git using git-svn, that is: people like I could switch from svn to git, and it wouldn't force others to change their workflows. I find it quite a pity that lyx has no ninja mode. That is: a mode of lyx that

} The control sequence at the end of the top line of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue, and I'll forget about whatever was undefined. niko On Sun, Apr 19, 2009 at 3:49 PM, Niko

2009-08-05 Thread Niko Schwarz
Hello! How do you type things like e.g. in lyx? If you do not take special care, it is translated to latex merely as e.g. and therefore creates a giant space after the abbreviation. How to avoid that? Cheers, Niko
