That was most certainly not an MWE :-0-O

It's much easier when you remove everything that does not generate the
issue, or the other way around, put only exactly what produces the
issue.  The side effect of this is that it's an iterative method, which
often makes one find the cause :-)-O

I can confirm that. However, I use a custom binding of Ctrl+Alt+Return 
(which is easier for me to remember and type than Alt+P Shift+Return) to 
"call newframe", which starts a new frame even from an overprint paragraph.

Hi,

I couldn't compile the file at first and had to remove all equations for 
some reason. But I guess that is not the problem on your system.


As for the jump, there was a typewriter formatting between your first 
and second frame. I am not sure how it got there or why it causes this 
problem.


You can fix it by removing the separator between the first and second 
frame and adding it again. Or, alternatively, select the separator 
together with the second frame label "Frame (plain)" and reset the 
family via Text Style.


Is that what you were after?

Best,

Hi

When a beamer presentation is presenting a itemised list line by
line and the first (the only one at the time) line is shorter than later
lines, then the heading on the first frame in not aligned with later
frames.  It demonstrates a pronounced jump.

This did not happen with earlier versions.

Is there any way to ensure the alignment is to the left as the

I've never heard of this happening before. Perhaps a LaTeX package got
updated somehow and the new version is incompatibile with the old. It's
hard to know without a minimal example .tex or .lyx file. For more
information, please read:

https://wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

If you can send a minimal example (please send all email to the list),
perhaps someone can figure it out.

In any case, sorry to your friend and to you for the frustration. I hope
you're not on the hook for having recommended LyX :)

I have never understood the purpose of \lyxframe and \lyxframeend when
the standard \begin{frame} and \end{frame} are available.

Conceding my almost complete ignorance on this topic, wouldn't it be
better to for LyX to use standard Beamer / LaTeX commands whenever
possible? This would seem to improve interoperability with users of
pure latex, as well as to adhere to the general principle of keeping

Indeed, a sane argument UI is a major prerequisite (next to features such as 
NextNested which automatically nests following paragraphs). However, the 
argument interface needs to be flexible. The beamer case shows that there's 
not one perfect UI for all argument-type entries. While many optional and 
required arguments are best handled via a dialog (as proposed by me in that 
report) -- for instance the optional and overlay arguments of frame --, 
arguments such as the frame title should best be inserted directly to the 
workarea (as the current UI does). For other use cases, even the current 
clumsy collapsable inset might be the best approach.

So we need a broad macro and environment argument abstraction and several user 
interfaces on top of that.

This is probably a misunderstanding. I meant that LyX is supposed to

It is defined once you insert an EndFrame in the document. In my experience,

Hi Günter,
I think that SW produces quite clean Latex files and the coding of the
sections uses quite standard commands. For example, one of the sections that
ended up in an ERB is:

\section{Une br\`{e}ve histoire de la croissance}


which is quite standard to my eyes.


What is not standard in SW is the use of comments for the Tex boxes and they
pollute a lot the final converted document in Lyx. This is why I do clean
them from the tex file before import (using regular expressions bases search
and replace).


But, it is strange that \begin{frame} is not recognized by Lyx and end up in
a ERB. I could maybe replace them by \lyxframebegin; but that would not be
simple since I must also handle, in this case, the \frametitle command's
argument (by transfering it of \lyxframebegin)... That could introduce more
mess in some cases if I am not careful :-(

I propose an alternative beamer.layout file without all these
"lyxframe...". This is somewhere down on my TODO list (after getting
some more knowledge about beamer).

As a start, you could try to copy beamer.layout to your $LYXDIR/layout/
directory and add a Frame style (definition adapted from my
seminar.layout, not tested):

Style Frame
LatexType   Environment
LatexName   frame
NextNoIndent1
Margin  Static
LeftMargin  N
ParIndent   ""
TopSep  0.4
LabelType   Top_Environment
LabelString "Landscape Slide:"
End

Then, re-try the import. If this helps a bit, we can try to devise a
more standard beamer layout.

Just to complete my previous mail by an example, I get the following type
strange codings (copied from the View latex code window):

\end{frame}

 \lyxframeend{}\section{Blabla}


The \end{frame} comes from an Evil Red box and \lyxframeend{} is introduced
without a selection by me of a frame environment.

2011/6/28 Murat Yildizoglu myi...@gmail.com

 Hi,

 I have imported a beamer document written previously by Scientific Word
 (portable latex). The \begin{frame} and \end{frame} instruction have been
 imported as evel red boxes. This is not a problem in itself, but now, when I
 introduce a section between two frames Lyx introduces a \lyxframeend
 instruction that I do need and that seems to crash the compilation of my
 file (I get an emergency stop in Latex, without further information - I have
 exported to latex and compiled by hand to see what is going on).

 Is this normal that Lyx introduces these \lyxframeend commands even if I
 have not used the New Frame environment? How can I correct the problem?
 Is \lyxframeend an intelligent problem that is able to check if a frame is
 already open (in which case, my problem could be caused by something else)?

 Thank you very much for your help!

 Murat

 PS. I also send the message to developers, hoping that they would better
 know how \lyxframeend works.

LyX's beamer support is kind of strange, in part because of LyX's
limited ability to handle arguments and in part because frames act like
insets but are rendered more like commands. This is why there is the odd
\lyxframeend{} macro. Anyway, it does not surprise me that LyX has

Re: Lyx and Beamer

Thanks Richard,

This is really bad news for me, since I have a whole bunch of course beamers
that I would like to convert to Lyx, since I am trying to definitely ditch
Scientific Word (after having lived for some time with both SW and Lyx).

My beamer documents are not particularly fancy, with some pauses and
\onslide etc. options, but Lys seems to suffer a lot from the conversion. I
also clean all comments from the .tex files, since they fill the Lyx window,
without any real use. This helps Lyx, but it is not very efficient in
conversion. Moreover, the error messages I get from Latex are not always
very helpful (but this another problem, well known by me from my latex by
hand days ;-)  ).

Lyx is not able to recognize \section like commands and translate them to
its environment structure (this is how I got the \lyxframeend problem: I
wanted to have more readable section titles, by selection the corresponding
environment for them). Neither options really get through the conversion
(for onslide, for example, \onslide gets in an ERB but not its option, but
this does not seem to annoy latex, so no problem here).

This is really very annoying indeed... We can only gain our co-authors to
Lyx if the conversion from Latex is quite painless.

How other people handle this? I really would not like to have to recreate
everything from scratch (even partially, since I have a lot of files to
convert).

I have not yet found time to complete this task. :-(

 Yes (example attached).  You obviously need to have Gnuplot installed.  You
 also need to modify the converter LyX uses.  In Tools  Preferences... 
 File Handling  Converters, highlight the LaTeX (pdflatex) - PDF (pdflatex)
 converter.  Change the converter line to

 pdflatex --shell-escape $$i

 and click Modify and then Save.

Keeping --shell-escape in PDF (pdflatex) converter is like asking for
troubles in other cases. I suggest to create another converter with
--shell-escape enabled keeping original one unaffected.

Re: LyX + arrows +beamer?

2011-02-21 Thread Paul Rubin
GMANE is acting weirdly -- it won't display the original text of your question.
 At any rate, the answer is that the diagram can indeed be reproduced in LyX
(see below).  I put the various chunks of the formula in ERT, as new LaTeX
commands, but that's not necessary.  You can do it in the equation editor, with
a couple of tricks: use \{ to create an inset with braces around it for
mathematical arguments; and inside that inset, type \ensuremath space rather
than typing $...$.  The reason I used LaTeX macros to capture bits and pieces is
that LyX (at least as of 1.6.x) does not have horizontal scrolling for
annoyingly wide equations or tables, so editing this thing in the equation
editor requires zooming way, way out and using a very powerful magnifying glass.

Did you send an attached .lyx file? I just got a long email with a lot of

Yes (example attached).  You obviously need to have Gnuplot installed.  
You also need to modify the converter LyX uses.  In Tools  
Preferences...  File Handling  Converters, highlight the LaTeX 
(pdflatex) - PDF (pdflatex) converter.  Change the converter line to


pdflatex --shell-escape $$i

and click Modify and then Save.

I just created a .lyx file with the code in your email an it works!

Thanks!

Another cool thing that I would like to be able to do with LyX is this

Is it possible?

Thanks!

Yes (example attached).  You obviously need to have Gnuplot installed.  
You also need to modify the converter LyX uses.  In Tools > 
Preferences... > File Handling > Converters, highlight the LaTeX 
(pdflatex) -> PDF (pdflatex) converter.  Change the converter line to


pdflatex --shell-escape $$i

and click Modify and then Save.

LyX is a great way to write beamer slides.  Assuming that you are using 
LyX 1.4.x, do the following.  Locate miktex root 
directory\tex\latex\beamer\lyx\layouts\beamer.layout, copy it, and put 
the copy in C:\Documents and Settings\your login id\Application 
Data\LyX1.4.x\layouts\.  Then start LyX, run Tools-Reconfigure, exit 
and restart LyX.  Beamer should show up in the list of document types.
