How to Install to LyX?

Installation procedures should be listed under http://www.lyx.org/Download I've done this on Windows 7 by just downloading the installer and running it. Of course, I already had a TeX distribution installed (TeX Live, available from http://www.tug.org/texlive/).

Alternatively, I would suggest using a LyX mailing list for specific problems. See: http://www.lyx.org/MailingLists

It seems that I can't run the package

I wanted to try out your example to see if I could compile it (I work with texmaker for mac). However, it shows these two errors:

1.) ! LaTeX Error: File `xcookybooky.sty' not found. Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed, or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

2.) line 1: ! ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Thanks For All Your Work

Really, a lot of effort over a number of years.

TikZ/PGF support

Excellent package, I love it. However I use TikZ/PGF a lot for modifying pictures (arrows, cropping, etcetera), plotting data and create simple figures of this and that. Sadly, tikz or pgf code inside a wrapfig environment does not work.

Is it possible to work towards implementing TikZ support in wrapfig?

The wrapfig.sty is missing in the opensuse 12.3. It is also be wriiten in LatexConfig 8.39 with "No".

Nimbus Sans and Roman in monospace (MyFonts).

Nimbus Sans and Roman have monospaced versions only available in MyFonts. You have tried Nimbus Sans Monospace in MyFonts and it has the slab serifs in I/J on it! There is no check box to remember your settings when leaving an guest book entry!

Nimbus Sans and Roman in monospace.

You will need Nimbus Sans and Roman in monospace included for usage in TeX. Nimbus Sans (fixed-width) added serifs to capital I/J and Nimbus Roman Mono has the same glyphs.

Unaccentuated letters are not decomposed in the authors list.

Here is an list of unaccentuated letters that might need to be decomposed in the authors list. German eszett = ss, Lslash/lslash = L/l, Oslash/oslash = O/o.

Invoice Bug


Invoice is a great package. However, there is a little bug. It is described here: http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/61113/using-graphicx-with-invoice-results-in-strange-pdf-output
