How to add IET Electronic Letter Layout in Lyx (Windows)?

    1. make a subdirectory of el-author under C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\

    2. copy el-author.cls into directory of C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\el-author

    3. create a file named el-author.layout and put it in C:\Program Files\LyX20\Resources\layouts

    • The contents of the .layout file:

#% Do not delete the line below; configure depends on this

# \DeclareLaTeXClass[el-author]{article (el-author)}

# Input general definitions

Input stdclass.inc

    • Now one only need to tell MiKTeX that you have new class in the system. Please start the program “Settings (Admin)” and press the button marked “Refresh FNDB”.

    • In LyX, do: Tools > Reconfigure

    • Restart Lyx.

    • You should be able to see the class as shown in the following figure.

How to add SIGCOMM class into Lyx (Windows)?

    1. make a subdirectory of sig-alternate under C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\

    2. copy sig-alternate.cls into the directory C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\sig-alternate

    3. copy sig-alternate.layout file into C:\Program Files\LyX20\Resources\layouts

      • another layout "corp-sig-alternate.layout" that can be used for more space efficiency.

      • be sure to make a new directory of "C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\corp-sig-alternate" and put in the file "corp-sig-alternate.cls"

    4. Now one only need to tell MiKTeX that you have new class in the system. Please start the program “Settings (Admin)” and press the button marked “Refresh FNDB”.

    5. In LyX, do: Tools > Reconfigure

    6. Restart Lyx.

    7. You should be able to see the class as shown in the following figure.

Create PDF file

(with all fonts embedded in letter size, resolution of 600, please use dvipdfm --help for more options )

c:\dvipdfm -p letter -r 600 -o my_paper.pdf my_paper.dvi

Create EPS file

Metafile to EPS Converter

An easy copy-and-paste process to create EPS file from MS-Windows applications.

Another old-fashion way...

(1) Install PDFCreator, Ghostscript and Gostview

(2) print to .ps file

(3) use Gostview to convert the .ps to .eps

Balance Last Page in two-column Format

Option 1.

\usepackage{flushend}

Option 2.

include the balance package in the preamble

\usepackage{balance}

insert

\balance

somewhere in the left (1st) column of your last page.

Chinese Characters

In order to use Chinese Characters in your paper, please do the following two steps: (1) fonts (2) document setting

  • Make sure you install the fonts

  • Document setting

      1. fonts--->CJK:bkai

      2. language-->other:Unicode (CJK) (utf8)

    1. Latex Preamble : \CJKencfamily{UTF8}

    • 預設CJK-Latex的繁體中文字型分別為:[4]

bkai:楷書。 (完整)

bsmi:明體。 (完整)

gbsn:細明體。 (缺字,部份字體無法顯示)

gkai:標楷體。 (缺字,同上)

    • 李果正老師提供的字型字型:

ftp://cle.linux.org.tw/pub2/tex/cjk/fonts/

    • 以前用的舊設定

\usepackage{CJK}

\date {}

\pagestyle{empty}

in the document body

\CJKfamily{cwmu}

Code Listings ( C & Matlab )

Want to list source codes in your document? Please take a look!

    1. First make sure you have the listings package in your MiKTeX

    1. Edit an article for a quick test like this. The Matlab source code is in the same directory of your Lyx code.

    1. You have to add the Latex preamble.

\usepackage{listings}

\usepackage{color}

\usepackage{textcomp}

\definecolor{listinggray}{gray}{0.9}

\definecolor{lbcolor}{rgb}{0.99,0.99,0.99}

\lstset{

backgroundcolor=\color{lbcolor},

numbers=left,

tabsize=4,

rulecolor=,

language=matlab,

basicstyle=\scriptsize,

upquote=true,

aboveskip={1.5\baselineskip},

columns=fixed,

showstringspaces=false,

extendedchars=true,

breaklines=true,

prebreak = \raisebox{0ex}[0ex][0ex]{\ensuremath{\hookleftarrow}},

frame=single,

showtabs=false,

showspaces=false,

showstringspaces=false,

identifierstyle=\ttfamily,

keywordstyle=\color[rgb]{0,0,1},

commentstyle=\color[rgb]{0.133,0.545,0.133},

stringstyle=\color[rgb]{0.627,0.126,0.941},

}

And finally here is the results.

You can also apply to your C source codes. (Be sure to put the lstset in your Lyx preamble)

The C preamble is listed as follows:

\usepackage{listings}

\usepackage{color}

\usepackage{textcomp}

\definecolor{listinggray}{gray}{0.9}

\definecolor{lbcolor}{rgb}{0.99,0.99,0.99}

\lstset{

backgroundcolor=\color{lbcolor},

numbers=left,

tabsize=4,

rulecolor=,

language=c,

basicstyle=\scriptsize,

upquote=true,

aboveskip={1.5\baselineskip},

columns=fixed,

showstringspaces=false,

extendedchars=true,

breaklines=true,

prebreak = \raisebox{0ex}[0ex][0ex]{\ensuremath{\hookleftarrow}},

frame=single,

showtabs=false,

showspaces=false,

showstringspaces=false,

identifierstyle=\ttfamily,

keywordstyle=\color[rgb]{0,0,1},

commentstyle=\color[rgb]{0,0.7,0},

stringstyle=\color[rgb]{1,0.44,0},

directivestyle=\color[rgb]{0.9,0,0}

}

Another C++ preamble provided by Ashish Jain

\lstset{

language=[Visual]C++,

keywordstyle=\bfseries\ttfamily\color[rgb]{0,0,1},

identifierstyle=\ttfamily,

commentstyle=\color[rgb]{0.133,0.545,0.133},

stringstyle=\ttfamily\color[rgb]{0.627,0.126,0.941},

showstringspaces=false,

basicstyle=\small,

numberstyle=\footnotesize,

numbers=left,

stepnumber=1,

numbersep=10pt,

tabsize=2,

breaklines=true,

prebreak = \raisebox{0ex}[0ex][0ex]{\ensuremath{\hookleftarrow}},

breakatwhitespace=false,

aboveskip={1.5\baselineskip},

columns=fixed,

upquote=true,

extendedchars=true,

% frame=single,

% backgroundcolor=\color{lbcolor},

}

Algorithm & Pseudo Codes with Line Numbers

Use the package algorithmic by adding the following in Documents -> Settings... -> LaTex Preamble

\usepackage{algorithmic}

And then, inside the default Algorithm float as Tex Code:

\begin{algorithmic}[1]

\STATE (example line that will be numbered) (remember to give a space after \State )

\end{algorithmic}

The optional argument to algorithmic ([1] in this case), provides the line numbered at every line. A numbering modulo 2 would be obtained using [2], and so forth.

\State provides a "regular line" (with number), while \Statex provides an unnumbered line.

Lyx Algorithms

A guide to using the Algorithm package from LyX.

https://charlesreid1.com/wiki/Lyx_Algorithms

Download LyX Algorithm-Style Layout ( http://bgu.perso.libertysurf.fr/ ) ( algo-0.3.tar.gz )

Be careful to use the "{ }" in the equation, it may break the line number sequence in the algorithm list.

Copy file of article-algo.layout and algorithm.inc into the directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.3\Resources\layouts

Make new directory

mkdir C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\tex\latex\algolyx

copy algolyx.sty into the directory

Now we need to tell MiKTeX that there is a new style in the system.

Please start the program “Settings (Admin)” and press the button marked “Refresh FNDB”.

Using the Algorithm Package from Arbitrary LaTeX Classes

This is easy to fix - simply add the following line to your LyX (Document Setting->Custom Layout/module)

# Use LyX algorithm definitions

Input algorithm.inc

BibTex Related

Reducing Spacing in the Bibliography

add

\usepackage{natbib}

\setlength{\bibsep}{0.0pt}

to the preamble of your document.

Newline in Reference Entry

Add \def\newblock{} in the preamble to remove the line feed in each cited reference.

Error Messages

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99d (MiKTeX 2.9)

The top-level auxiliary file: NSC-yk2012.aux

The style file: plain.bst

bibtex: Windows API error 21: 裝置未就緒

bibtex: Data: F:/cycu/Papers/ref.bib

The error message is due to the path provided in the Lyx is hardcoded to hard drive F:. Change the path to ../../ref.bib fix the error.

Misplaced alignment tab character &

This error is due to the character '&' being placed in the .bbl file. The quick fix is to put 'I\' in front of the '&' .

Steps to edit the Tex file exported from Lyx

(1)In Lyx, export the document in plainTex format.

(2)Edit the name for all the figures in the .tex file.

(3)Edit the \bibliography to use the .bbl file

for example,

%%\bibliography{14F__cycu_Papers_MyLibrary,15F__cycu_Papers_ref,16F__cycu_Papers_ref_data_stream,17F__cycu_Papers_main,18F__cycu_Papers_NetFPGA_Korea_erman-yoyo_netfpga_asiaws_paper}
