### Preparing and inserting figures into LyX document

With LyX working nicely with my text-input, I now need to learn how to prepare and insert figures in that text.

1. Given my system -- MacOSX 10.7.5, LyX 2.0.5.1 -- where best to start drawing for LyX?

2. What search-terms are best for learning how to insert such figures into my document?

PS: I recognise that it's mostly my problem, but I have trouble with some of the LyX documentation; also with
archive-search. It's therefore very helpful when I'm given some early pointers and advice. When I'm more
familiar with the LyX scene, I plan to contribute to the documentation team as a "concerned beginner/user."

Thank you; Gordon -- MacOSX 10.7.5, LyX 2.0.5.1

### My hyperlinks and urls are not working in Adobe or Okular but do work

I don't seem to be able to create a clickable hyperlink or url  that works in Adobe Reader or Okular but they work just fine in Document Viewer.  This is true of my own file (see attachment) and the recent example file from  http://ca-mg6.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=8ijkmp1vpj8vh#mail that Uwe Stöhr uploaded.

I have also attached the pdf file. Would someone have a look at the pdf file  and confirm that the problem is my setup? That is, tell me that I have to figure out how to enable hyperrefs in Adobe Reader and Okular and not that there is some problem with the way LyX is generating the pdf on my system?

Thanks

### Exportation

Hello,

I have another issue with the latex file exporation.
If I choose the plain option, the .eps files are regenerated.
If I choose the pdflatex option, the .pdf files are regenerated.

I would like to have the option of not regenerating any image file
that I may have. The export should only generate a latex, with the
name of the file that I give in the includegraphics and not modification
of the extension.

Does it make sense?

Thank.

### More Color options

Hello,

I would like to suggest to the developpers to give an option to
use an extented choice of colors, for example by giving access to the
argument of \color{} without moving to the latex mode (it could be
an option of color in text style).
Is it complicated?
Of course the full list of the crayola colors could also be offered!

Regards.

### options on a document class


Let me start with a big thanks to all of the developers and users of Lyx. I
have been using it for nearly exclusively for 15 years or more. Ever since
FrameMaker got purchased by Adobe I have been using Lyx.

Lyx works so well that I have never had to learn LaTeX or TeX. I have been
through the documentation a couple of times and have been through the WIKI
too. I almost always get my answers there, but sometimes I have to resort to
google. In this case, they have all failed and I finally have to post. Well,
I do not remember every posting before.

Currently I am trying to write a paper and it comes with this request:

Latex users: please use \documentclass[conference, compsocconf]{IEEEtran}
(with option 'compsocconf').

Since Lyx works so well and I have never had to learn LaTeX, I have no idea
what they are asking. I poked around Lyx and the documentation and have not
convinced myself that I have found the correct thing to do.

1) Is there some place (pull down menu or dialog box) that I am supposed to
enter this option and Lyx will do the rest?

2) If I have to do ERT, then were does the ERT go and should I start with a
base document or the IEEE template?

3) Some other lower level trick?

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

### convert lilypond-lyx to epub

Hello,

My lyx documents contain embedded lilypond code. I want to convert to epub.

Unfortunately the lilypond code isn't compiling to xhtml exporting with
Lyx-HTML.

Are there any plans to implement this feature?

Regards

### Help with import from SPanish

Hi,

I am struggling with importing a document in Spanish into LyX because I
do not know how to get the Spanish diacriticals to show in the LyX
frontend and it doesn't compile.

Here is the minimal example

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{selinput}
\SelectInputMappings{%
aacute={á},
ntilde={ñ},
Euro={€}
}

\begin{document}
\section{Diagnóstico}
Durante el proceso de visitas al XXXXX, se realizó un inventario de las
características de la infraestructura de comunicaciones y acceso a
Internet y otros servicios.

\end{document}

I use LyX 2.0.6 on Mac 10.8.3 and would appreciate any advice -O

Don't give up that quickly. Please help to improve the situation as others will run into the same
situation as you.

I googled a bit and found that for example the beamer document class solved this by providing an option:
https://bitbucket.org/rivanvx/beamer/commits/24853e6b98cf

I googled further and the mtpro2 manual seems to state a solution in sec. 2.15:

"The definitions of the AMS symbols consume a huge amount of TEX re-
sources, so you can disable them through the package option noamssymbols."

noamssymbols

to the document class options field in the document settings of your document? Does it then work?

(LyX is free and lives form the fact that many users help to get it better!)

thanks for your help and patience

### Line Breaks in Text Sections formatted with Local Layouts

Hi guys, I've been working with LyX and XeTeX recently to set up a
document which allows me to switch between various East Asian languages
using Text Styles. Although the Text Styles I have defined in Document
Properties -> Local Layouts work well for single words or phrases, I
haven't found a way to enter line breaks in sections defined for a
certain language, and I was hoping someone here may have a suggestion on
how to achieve this. I can copy and paste text containing line breaks
from other sources and I can force line breaks using CTRL + Enter, but I
was hoping for a more elegant solution that does not involve too much
ERT. Any thoughts?

Full disclosure: I posted this question on latex-community.org a week
ago, but haven't received a reply, which is why I figured I'd give this
mailing list a try. The post also contains a sample file demonstrating
my setup:

### AMS multilne

Hello,

In lyx 2.0.5, I would like to insert a multline formula
(as documented), but I cannot do it because under insert > math >
all the first part of the options (until array environment) is
not available.
Do I have a package missing?
I attached my configure.log file.

Thank.
