### elsart author issues

Hi,

I've got a problem that I can't imagine is unique or unsoved, but I couldn't
find an adequate solution in the archives - so could someone help?

All I'm trying to do is start writing a journal article with elsart
(starting with the elsart.lyx template). I have two authors. I want them to
appear on the same line, but I want different label properties for each (eg
email for the first author, plus corresponding author flag).

I've picked up the tip of using StandardInTitle in the elsart.layout file
(see
http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-users-UqbJ+GOpo4+hPH1hqNUYSQ <at> public.gmane.org/msg26379.html
) but
I still haven't managed to fix it the problem.

I'm on version 1.4.4

I don't suppose someone has a >1 author template they could email me where
one author is the corresponding author?

regards

Rob

### Re: 1.5.0-beta2 bug: bracketted math expressions not drawn correctly

Actually, the problem only happens when I use the (right/left) arrow key to
move away from the blue subscript inset. If instead I use the spacebar, the
behaviour is as expected.
Since this didn't happen with previous versions of lyx, I thought it might be
a bug. But maybe this is some new policy regarding the navigation within
formulae.

Make sure you get your latex distribution and gsprint (ghostview) installed.
Check the whether you got the large bundle

It seems you don't have installed in your system the TeX class used by the document/template you are
opening. In
Documents->Settings->Document Class you can check the class files that LyX recognizes (these are the
LaTeX distribution). If you have MikTex installed, go to MikTex->Settings->Packages and try to install
the missing class files (you
need a working internet connection).

Do you really want to print from LyX? I would say the normal practice is to export to/view in postscript or pdf
and print that document

### refreshing composite documents

Dear Users and Developers,

I use Lyx  for Windows.
When a child document included in the main one has been changed, its dvi
view must be updated from the main document. It is an old issue that
this does not work unless one restarts Yap or Lyx again. Until now a
workaround was that one made some artificial changes in the main
document, and this induced the update process. However, it appears that
this no longer works with Lyx 1.4.4 and the last available version of
Latex and Yap. The first trial to update a child document leads to a
Python-connected error message ("An error occurred whilst running python
-tt 'C:/Program Files/Lyx14/Resources/scrip'") the second trial invokes
the error message "An empty output file was produced" followed by a
Latex error saying that "I cannot write on 'the name of the main document'".

Very-very fortunately, the update process works now with the .ps view.
However, .dvi view would be the most important view. I think it would be
inevitable to solve this main doc--child docs update issue as Lyx is
It would be a nice present in the  new version 1.5 to have this old
problem solved.

With best wishes and many thanks in advance.

### Re: Character styles: inlining a local layout format

Hi Jürgen,

Actually I'm using LyX-1.5.0beta.

I copied your text in my local layouts file (obviously wihtout the '> 's

Then I ran reconfigure.
After eliminating the entries for my old Style (\begin_layout ...) by
changing them to 'Standard'
I opened the document, marked some strings and chose the CharStyle
Fboxed_Code which is now available.

No, it's obviously some kind of "hidden" feature (and it's still not yet
complete, most notably, there's no gui for creating char styles yet).

http://marc.info/?l=lyx-devel&m=114421751100431&w=2
where "Yours truly" (Martin) is the one you have to thank for character
styles.
(the picture was taken at the developers meeting 2005 IIRC).

### Problems in defining a listings environment

Dear list,

I am trying to add a lstlisting environment to my layout file (using
listings package) and arrive at the following:

NextNoIndent		1
LeftMargin		MMM
RightMargin		MMM
TopSep		0.5
BottomSep		0.5
Align			Left
AlignPossible		Block, Left, Right, Center
LabelType		No_Label

# define the environment listings
Preamble
\usepackage{listings}
\lstset{language=Python,
showspaces=false,
basicstyle=\footnotesize,
showstringspaces=false,

}
EndPreamble

# standard font definition

There are other problems like _ is translated to \_ ...

It's not a policy, since it doesn't happen consistently.  Interestingly,
someone posted screenshots of the bug on Win XP.  I can't reproduce his
screenshots either, so I'm totally confused.  But at least you know it's
not just LyX picking on you.
