### LyX/LaTeX Class/Style for Taylor & Francis Pubs

   The Taylor & Francis web site has a Wurd template, but no LaTex class or
LyX style for their journals. If anyone here knows of an acceptable style
(perhaps KOMA-Script article?) please let me know.

TIA,

Rich

### How to create reference to Custom Items

Hi,

I am trying to reference to an enumerate custom item created using the
enumitem module but it seems not to work. I attached an example.

### Creating bookmarks based on passage in the text

Hi,

In word you can create bookmarks based on a passage in the text. Is
there such a feature in LyX?

So basically it would work like this:

1. You mark a passage (e.g. a word).
2. You make it a bookmark.
2. You go somewhere else and insert a cross reference top the bookmark.
This will lead to the content of the bookmark being inserted and a
hyperlink to that passage being created.

I think it is a nice idea to create hyperlinks (like in Wikipedia) to
certain terms that are explained elsewhere. Also if one changes one's
mind about the term one can just change it at the bookmark and it is
changed everywhere in the text.

(I guess it is similar to creating a definition in LaTeX

\def\foo{Whatever}

So one can use now \foo to insert "Whatever" in the text and can change
what is actually inserted in the definition. What is missing is the
hyperlink part to the bookmark. So it is not exactly the same.)

Best,
Daniel

Hi Isam,

It's difficult to give good help/advice without knowing what you've tried and what errors you are running into. I recently went through what you are going through with my thesis and had to rely on these forums for a lot of help. I would start with the thread located here:

After that I think it is helpful to look into adding custom LaTeX class files to LyX and how to create .layout files. There are also some pretty decent guides to getting LyX setup with your Universities LaTeX files. Here is one I've gotten some help from:

Once you've tried some things report back with what you've done and what is going wrong and someone will be able to help you. Last of all don't give up. Once you get it working it is well worth the effort.

### Multicol Package: Figures Not Displayed

   Running lyx-2.1.4 on Slackware-14.1. Document class is KOMA-script
article and the multicol package is included in the preamble.

For ease of reading I want to set the body in two columns per page leaving
the title, author, abstract, and bibilography in a single column.

Following the abstract, in the standard environment I inserted
\begin{multicol}{2} followed by the first chapter heading on a new line.

At the end of the text, before the bibliography environment, I inserted
\end{multicol}.

This works but the three figures are not included (they are sized to 100%
column width), and the references are typeset as Figure ??.

If I set the page layout as 2 column, the figures are included, but the
title, author, abstract, and bibliography are also in the 2-column format.

I've looked for the source of the problem but have not seen it. A hint as
to why the figures are not displayed when the multicol package is used will
be much appreciated.

TIA,

Rich

### Extra space before nested sublist

Hi all,

I'm using LyX version 2.1.4. My problem is as follows:

When creating a nested list environment, LyX inserts a blank line before the \begin{enumerate} of the sublist. It creates code like:

\begin{enumerate}
\item One
\item Two

\begin{enumerate}
\item Three\end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}

That blank line causes some extra space which doesn't look very nice (my intention is to use a reduced itemsep value to create compact lists, and that extra bit of space really stands out in that case). Is there was to prevent the creation of this blank line?

It is somewhat against LyX's own conventions, too, because LyX normally doesn't insert a blank line before \begin{environment} commands. I wonder why it does so when it comes to sublists.

Cheers,

### Chktex in Miktex

Hello,
Chktex is now part of Miktex for Windows. The name of the package is
"miktex-chktex-base". I've installed this package in Miktex. I want to use
chktex in Lyx, but I don't find an instruction for it on Lyx webpage. Can
anyone give my an instruction or hint to integrate chktex in Lyx under
Windows with Miktex, for example the Checktex command line in preferences
> output > latex?

Thank you,
Jürgen

### 2.2rc1: Graphic scaling problem

After introducing an oversized graphic png image, attempts to set the scaling fail!
LyX appears set the scaling, when OK is pressed but fails to complete this action  -- the scale is left unset
After using a text editor to insert i"width 100text%" for the image, LyX will work as intended and subsequently adjust the width to whatever is required.
Only the initial setting fails.
Regards

Hi!

In general packages should be loaded *before* hyperref is loaded. So I
guess that is what happens when "Use Hyperref Support" is activated in
the Document Settings.

However, there seem to be some exceptions, for example,

\usepackage[all]{hypcap}.

Is there a way to load this package *after* hyperref is loaded? Or will
I have to deactivate "Use Hyperref Support" and load it manually in the
