You could use the exercise package: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/exercise/ It needs to be installed in your latex-distribution, Thanks for this suggestion, which on paper looks to be what I need. But as a complete newby I am stumped at how to install. I have no idea

Thanks; I tried that but it output only one line of many, hiding the rest and still not printing on the blank page after the title page! in the KOMA script there are also the Uppertitleback and Lowertitleback environments. Maybe this is what you need? Nikos

Typesetting poetry

2010-03-05 Thread Richard Brown
I'm using Komsascript book, and have a fair amount of poetry in my manuscript. But the VERSE environment is not very satisfactory: The main problem is that there is too much space between one line and the next, and I must absolutely adjust that. It would also be nice if I had greater flexibility

I'm using komascript book, which if I understand aright calls stdlayouts.inc to get its basic parameters. In one of the environments, (verse) i want a different vertical space between every line of the poems. I think each poem line is defined as a separate paragraph. So I decided to change

2010-03-17 Thread Richard Brown
Thanks for that Steve. I followed your tutorials, and learned a fair amount: but in the end I found that the new environment I had made had knock-on effects on the paragraphs surrounding those where I applied it- effects I couldn't explain or remove. I hope there's a simpler way.

I have some TIFF files exported from Sibelius, the music scoring program. They are just high-quality images of black and white music scores. I tried converting them to jpg in GIMP for inclusion in my Lyx manuscript, but the results were awful- or at least, they were awful in lyx. When I open the
