 Hello Forum,

  I have made similar post couple of months ago. The new class that i am
 trying to incorporate into LyX layout is accompanied by a description of the
 class file.

  I did some configuration so  that get the liuthesis.layout in
 Document-settings-Document class option combox box. I believe that it is
 not enough to get started with the writing yet.

  And i am kind of confused how to make the related configuration in the
 layout file. Lets take an example:

  1. In the accompanied manual, it specifies number of options that i can
 set. One of the options is Output format. The possible values for this
 option are:

- print.
- ePress.
- pdfRelease.
- draft.

 How to specifiy this option in the layout file. I have checked the
 customization chapter for LyX. Should it go under the section ClassOptions
 section or AddToPreamble ?

  If you want one of these options set by default, but for the user to be
 able to override it, then add it ClassOptions, e.g.:
 Class Options
 Other ePress
 End
 These will turn up on the Document Class pane of DocumentSettings.



  There are several other Macros in the accompanied pdf file that must be
 configured in  the layout file.


  During the previous post, one Julien showed me some hint ; like inputting
 the department name of the thesis that i am writing for and it was specified
 in the class options from LyX Documents Settings menu. He suggested this
 based on his extensive experience with LyX.

  Now if i have to specify the department name in the liuthesis.layout file
 it should have went into ClassOptions section and  inside Other
 subsection. Shouldn't it?

  Yes, just as with ePress, since this is a class option.


  I need some suggestion make this mapping between the manual that i have
 now and .layout file that i have to edit. Some of the macros defined in the
 manual has no corresponding options defined in the LyX manual. What to do
 then?

  That depends upon the command. Ones like \subject are going to be treated
 as paragraphs. So:
 Style Subject
 LatexType command
 LatexName subject
 # this tells LyX that it goes into Front Matter
 InTitle 1
 End
 Very basic, with no special formatting, but it will work. The only one of
 the Front Matter commands you can't do this way is \thesisDate, because LyX
 doesn't yet do multi-argument commands. There will be support for that in
 2.0, however. So, for now, you'd have to enter that as ERT.


Any hint on how to do you find /subject to be treated as a Style? In the
manual it specifies that it takes only one argument.


 Then I'd do:
 TitleLatexName makeFrontPage
 so LyX will issue \makeFrontPage to create the title page, etc.

 The theorem, etc, environments can probably be copied over from LyX's own
 theorems.inc.

Hi,

I don't have much time at the moment to help with the layout, but if I 
remember correctly you had a basic layout file to get started, no? It 
would be useful to share it if you do have one, so that other users can 
help enhance it.


In any case, I should say that not having the layout file does not 
prevent you from starting to use LyX to write your thesis. Just use a 
layout such as book or report and use the standard markups like chapter, 
section, figures, theorems, etc. These are standard markups and will be 
understood when you change your layout (once you have a working 
liuthesis.layout). On the other hand, I would advise not to fill the 
frontmatter yet since this is where liuthesis.cls uses a lot of custom 
commands.


Cheers,
Julien

Hello Forum,

I have made similar post couple of months ago. The new class that i am
trying to incorporate into LyX layout is accompanied by a description of the
class file.

I did some configuration so  that get the liuthesis.layout in
Document-settings-Document class option combox box. I believe that it is
not enough to get started with the writing yet.

And i am kind of confused how to make the related configuration in the
layout file. Lets take an example:

1. In the accompanied manual, it specifies number of options that i can set.
One of the options is Output format. The possible values for this option
are:

-  print.
- ePress.
- pdfRelease.
- draft.

How to specifiy this option in the layout file. I have checked the
customization chapter for LyX. Should it go under the section ClassOptions
section or AddToPreamble ?

There are several other Macros in the accompanied pdf file that must be
configured in  the layout file.


During the previous post, one Julien showed me some hint ; like inputting
the department name of the thesis that i am writing for and it was specified
in the class options from LyX Documents Settings menu. He suggested this
based on his extensive experience with LyX.


Now if i have to specify the department name in the liuthesis.layout file it
should have went into ClassOptions section and  inside Other subsection.
Shouldn't it?


I need some suggestion make this mapping between the manual that i have now
and .layout file that i have to edit. Some of the macros defined in the
manual has no corresponding options defined in the LyX manual. What to do
then?

Hi,

I don't have much time at the moment to help with the layout, but if I 
remember correctly you had a basic layout file to get started, no? It 
would be useful to share it if you do have one, so that other users can 
help enhance it.


In any case, I should say that not having the layout file does not 
prevent you from starting to use LyX to write your thesis. Just use a 
layout such as book or report and use the standard markups like chapter, 
section, figures, theorems, etc. These are standard markups and will be 
understood when you change your layout (once you have a working 
liuthesis.layout). On the other hand, I would advise not to fill the 
frontmatter yet since this is where liuthesis.cls uses a lot of custom 
commands.


Cheers,
Julien

  If you want one of these options set by default, but for the user to be
 able to override it, then add it ClassOptions, e.g.:
 Class Options
 Other ePress
 End
 These will turn up on the Document Class pane of DocumentSettings.



I have several other Options to set and i have tried them as follows:

ClassOptions
   Other ePress,itn,[english|swedish]
End

then i checked the LyX in the Documents-Settings and only ePress shows
up. The rest of the other options did not show up anywhere. Did they get
effected or ignored. I check the manual and it says that several Other
options can be specified with comma separation.


Anything else that  missed in the process?

  That depends upon the command. Ones like \subject are going to be treated
 as paragraphs. So:
 Style Subject
 LatexType command
 LatexName subject
 # this tells LyX that it goes into Front Matter
 InTitle 1
 End
 Very basic, with no special formatting, but it will work. The only one of
 the Front Matter commands you can't do this way is \thesisDate, because LyX
 doesn't yet do multi-argument commands. There will be support for that in
 2.0, however. So, for now, you'd have to enter that as ERT.

 Then I'd do:
 TitleLatexName makeFrontPage
 so LyX will issue \makeFrontPage to create the title page, etc.

 The theorem, etc, environments can probably be copied over from LyX's own
 theorems.inc.
