Re: Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class "book (KOMA-script)

thank you very much for your reply!
what style did you choose for the bibliography itself? (when you right
click on "BibTeX Generated Bibliography" -> Settings... to choose the
bib-file and the citation style from the list)

I ask because, unfortunately, the preamble produced two error messages
for me (see below). but maybe it depends on what corresponding style
you choose? (I did choose natbib in Document -> Settings ->
Bibliography...)

The error messages:

Undefined control sequence.
\bibpunct
{(}{)}{,}{a}{,}{,}
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., \hobx'), type I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}.
\bibpunct{(
}{)}{,}{a}{,}{,}
You're in trouble here.  Try typing  <return>  to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type  X <return>  to quit.

I chose the elsarticle-harv and changed  every citation using formatting
->citation style in document.
can you please provide a _small_ LyX example file to be able to reproduce
the problem?

Re: Problem with Bibliography author-year style in document class "book (KOMA-script)

thank you!
In the meantime, I fixed some of my problems and I'm pretty happy with
the results.
- part of my problem apparently was a bad bib-file, which I fixed now.
- I found a good solution for deleting the short titles from my
reference list: \renewcommand\ <at> biblabel[1]{} in the LateX preamble did
the trick. I found the suggestion here:
http://texnik.dante.de/cgi-bin/mainFAQ.cgi?file=bibtex/bibtex#nolabel
- I did manage to change the square brackets around the citations in
the text to round ones with:
\renewcommand{\ <at> cite}[2]{({#1\if <at> tempswa , #2\fi})} in the preamble

I am still looking for a way to get rid of the brackets around the
year in my citations. Right now, they look like this: (Talos(2008)),
and I want them to look like (Talos 2008).
so, if anybody has suggestions, that would be great!

apart from that though, I'm very happy with the results for now.

Using article(beamer) and presentation(beamer) at the same time

Hi

I am using article(beamer) and presentation(beamer) and I have two questions:

1) When I export the lyx file, it obviously overwrites the one with
the other. I therefore have to export the article(beamer), rename it,
change the document class to presentation(beamer), export it again and
preferably rename it as well to make sure that I don't overwrite it
again after I changed the document class to presentation(beamer). Is
there a way of automatically adding _article when the article is
selected and _presentation when presentation is selected?

2) following that, is there a way of creating both at the same time?
Effectively exporting, renaming, changing, exporting, renaming as a
script which is executed when I export?

Thanks,

Rainer

Hi Rainer!

Ehm... I am curious: do you use the "same" document to export once as an
article and once as a presentation? If so, how does it work?

If not, then what's the big deal of giving different names (as one
should do) to your documents (article != presentation).

Kind regards, Nikos

The whole idea behind article and presentation mode beamer is that you can have
both versions in the same file. I find it more useful for printed slides vs.
presented slides though then article and presentation in the same file.

I was not well-informed on that. Thanks for the additional info.
