Cursor placement regression (painting?)

With Qt4 and Qt5, if I open the attached document I cannot place the
cursor to the right of the note. If I put the cursor to the left of
the BibTeX inset and press left, it goes to the left of the note, if I
press left again it enters the note from the right.

The cursor placement works as expected for me at 1fefbf5b.

painting bug?

In the attached document, if I put the cursor inside the text
"handout:0" and type, it writes over the next inset (same thing if I
type after deleting all the text to begin with). Are we missing a
repaint? I can reproduce this with both Qt4 and Qt5, on Ubuntu 14.04.

Here is a screencast:

Suggestion: Inkscape External Document

Greetings

I've found Xfig to be increasingly difficult to use on newer Linux
systems and consider now using Inkscape. It seems to me I have to edit
the same document several times in order to get changes to take
effect.  For some reason, the "special" flag on text doesn't stick the
way it used to.  And the bezier curves aren't too smooth either.  The
only reason I stay with Xfig is that Lyx has the built-in External
Document grabber thing that runs the script to export the 2 parts.

Now Inkscape has a similar --export-latex flag, described here:

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/svg-inkscape

That has preamble code that works exactly like the LyX external document s.

I think it would be nice if you incorporate that in LyX, save me the
trouble of running inkscape scripts separately.

I made a small test file and document to convince myself this would
work. It is much nicer to work with Inkscape than Xfig, and the
document compiled after I figured out it required graphicx and color
packages

Call for testers: the features/scroll-reloaded branch

Hello,

Next on my plate after str-metrics is the GSoC 2013 horizontal scrolling 
project.

On this new features/scroll-reloaded branch, I have finished the pending 
parts of this work. The only remaining glitch that I know of is 
selection with mouse, but there are probably others.

I am open to requests for improvements, although I have to warn that I 
am not going to implement a real scrollbar :) Please first try the 
keyboard-based interface, I suspect it does the most important part.

Re: #9208: LyX 2.1 fails to create pdf for beamer presentations

Apparently a took out the real cause of the problem when a made the example I uploaded. Finally I have found
that the real source of my problem is the conversion of overlay options. Here attached are two minimal
examples 1 and 2.

 MinimalExample1 fails to load  in LyX2.1 giving the error

/var/folders/vv/dnklz33w8xl51r006s6y082h0000gq/T/lyx_tmpdir.YIyqsDR74437/Buffer_convertLyXFormatXXXXXX.lyx.npfOOrT74437
ended unexpectedly, which means that it is probably corrupted.

MinimalExample2.lyx run for ages asking from time to time 
The command pdflatex “MinimalExample2.tex” has not text completed
Do you want to stop it?

Both examples compile fine with LyX2.0.8.  lyx2lys responsible?

Regards, 
Jose Diaz

Line-styles in tables

Hi,

it would be great if Lyx' table-tool would support at least LaTeX' most important line-styles for lines in tables: thin, middle, thick, broken line, dotted line.

Jonas

Hello, yes this happens with all my old presentations. I will upload a minimal example.

Str-metrics branch: can I land now?

Hello,

The str-metrics branch has come to a point where I thing it should be in 
master. I have two more commits at home (forgot to push) that are going 
to solve the remaining cursor positioning problem that was haunting me.

I do not feel that it gets much testing now, and I am going to leave in 
vacation on wednesday. Therefore in some sense it is now or never :)

Seriously, does anyone have some reservations against merging this work 
to branch now?

Re: Drag & Drop not working in 2.1.0 (Uwe?)

I'm happy to report that the file drag & drop (from an explorer to lyx) is working with 2.1.1 in Windows 8.1 64bit.

Unfortunately this info is shown for development builds only :(

Perhaps you can get this information from the Qt dll files?

Making the preview log more accessible

At present if you want to consult the preview log -- for instance, if 
you open a document and equations etc. are not snapping into their 
preview appearance -- you need to navigate to the temporary directory 
where LyX does its work and locate the log there. The log will generally 
pinpoint where the previewing is coming unstuck. It would be good to 
have this log more readily available. The obvious place is as another 
tab in the View > Messages pane.

For every new equation or preview inset, or modification of a previous 
one, a new log is created. To keep tabs for all of them would be 
excessive, so I imagine only the latest would be shown.
