\insertframenumber inserts the number of the frame (not slide), 
\inserttotalframenumers the overall count of frames. \insertpagenumber 
inserts the slide number instead (which is less useful IMO), and 
\insertpresentationendpage the number of slides in the presentation.

The best way is to change the outer theme Warsaw is based upon, i.e. split. 
Have a look here for an example:

Lyx server and Jabref on windows

Hello,

I have Lyx 1.4.3-5 (Windows) and Jabref 2.2b.

Trying to push a citation from jabref gives me an error to verify that
Lyx is ruuning and that the lyxpipe is valid C:\Documents and Settings\Graham\lyx\

 In lyx I have added the path

 C:\Documents and Settings\Graham\lyx\.lyxpipe

 in the  lyx preferences and reconfigured and restarted lyx.

 As I understand the documentation this should create an lyxpipe.in file,
 but no file is created.

 I have tried several different path options, eg creating the full
 file name etc, but cannot get it to work.

 Can anyone suggest what I should be doing.

 Many thanks

 Graham

Re: Lyx server and Jabref on windows

Hi,

I had the same problem on a Mac.

See http://wiki.lyx.org/Mac/Mac#toc10 for useful hints. They are meant 
for Mac, but might be applicable for Windows, too.

A likely source of error are blanks in the path name. For example, 
"C:\Documents and Settings\..." might not be a good option. Did you try 
a new path with no blanks?

Cheers,
Christian

Thanks, I had found that link and tried to follow the advice there.

I also tried a path without spaces, but it didn't help.

The other paths, in both lyx and Jabref have spaces, so I suspect that
isn't the problem.

Thanks again.

You cannot use this feature on windows, since the pipe is implemented using 
UNIX specific functions that are not available on windows.

Many thanks, this has caused me a lot of frustration trying to get
it to work. So the explanation is gratefully received.

I wrote some documentations with LyX and are currently working on the documentation of LyX. From my
experience I say that a well prepared 
template document solves the problems you mentioned. If you give me more informations about the layout you
need I can surely help you to create 
such a template or also a special Lyx layout file.

LyX's Extended-Insets manual:
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/DocumentationDevelopment#Extended-Insets
is an example of the style and format I usually use for documentations. This format can easily be adopted for
other aplications.

Where is it?

Re: Special case of enumerate

This question about numbering seems to be one of the most frequently
asked questions on the list and there was no wiki page devoted to it,
so I started one:

http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/Numbering

It's kind of pathetic at present, but please expand and add links.
There is a lot of information about numbering on the wiki but it's not
consolidated.

Good thinking! If there are many different pages that concern numbering, 
it is a good idea to place a tag (e.g. add [[!Numbering]]) on each of 
those pages. The result of [[!Numbering]] will be a link to a so called 
"category page", which will list all pages containing that tag.

/Christian

PS. Please note the '!' between '[[' and 'Numbering'. That's what makes 
this a tag in addition to being a link.
