you run into problems with LyX and hyperref. hyperref needs to. I’m not sure how it works in LyX but the command you are looking for is In stead of Insert –> URL, use Insert –> Hyperlink, right below it. Top. [Lyx ver/Win7 Pro] To use this: go to Document > Settings > LaTeX Preamble and paste just this line into the corresponding text box. Lyx will add this to the.

If you get the error message “Set output to PDF. With pdfpages version 0. Enable the hyperref support in the document settings under PDF Properties. Incoming hyperlink anchors are Named-Destinations. URL will be www.

The default LaTeX fonts cm or ec are bitmap fonts. Therefore they cannot be scaled to any size and lxy PDF they look pixeled.

Modern LaTeX distributions ship a whole range of Type 1 fonts. Some bleeding edge distributions like XeTeX even provide support for OpenType fonts, which is the latest and greatest font format. However, running these distributions with LyX is still tricky but might improve in the future.

If you want to keep the look of the default fonts, you have several possibilities. Times hjperlink, as the name indicates, is designed for printing newspaper with small columns. Therefore the letters are smaller than in other fonts, what makes them improper for one-column documents. See also section 3.

What you still can’t do is encrypt your document. If you want to define what the reader is allowed to do with your document, you have to use Adobe Acrobat open your PDF with Acrobat and set the properties.

Note, however, that quite a range of the properties including encryption can also be set with the free tool pdftkwhich is available for several platforms whereas Adobe Acrobat is not available for, say, UNIX.

If you are using for example Algorithm floats you run into problems with LyX and hyperref.

Unfortunately LyX loads ‘native’ packages before the packages defined in Latex Preamble. An advantage hypeglink this method is that you can define your own caption names e. Use the LaTeX package pdfcomment. Here is a module that adds some native LyX-support for that package. By default, this is not allowed.

Unfortunately, there is no way yet to change this special permission outside of Acrobat. Due to a very rigid licensing policy of Adobe it is unlikely hpyerlink this will change in the future. You are using package “hyperref” and you have at least two pages “1”. If the pages were labled differently for example: If there is a title page without a printed page number, you can set the page counter to zero, for example.

The following is a short digest of this thread. This makes it difficult to implement a unique solution to eps file conversion in LyX, and to get the same output in dvi, ps, and pdf. LyX supports three different ways of producing PDF files. This is because all of them have their specific pros and cons. This, in turn, can be converted to a PDF file by ps2pdf LyX does all those steps automatically for you if you select PDF which is in fact ps2pdf as output format:.


This basically requires all the graphics to be EPS files. But that’s not a major problem, as LyX converts all files to the appropriate format if needed however, if you have the choice, using EPS as native format is recommended. Also, dvi and postscript specials are supported the former is also true for dvipfdm x. For instance, LyX’s change tracking feature uses dvi specials to mark the changes in the output. If you don’t need PostScript output, you can save a step by going directly from DVI to PDF format by using dvipdfm or the newer dvipdfmxwhich is intended to supersede the former:.

Once again, the figures must be Encapsulated PS. So you have compact, scalable graphics — with one less step. That looks pretty painless; but there’s a catch. And JPEG is a compact format for photographs, while PNG is a very compact way to store images with sharp outlines without introducing compression artifacts. The advantage of this method is that pdflatex is the most feature-rich converter program. It features, for instance, character protusion and font expansion see this document for explanationtwo microtypographical features that let your document look even better than “ordinary” LaTeX could ever achieve.

If all the fonts are not embedded, and if the file is sent to other people who have not the non-embedded fonts installed, there will happen a font substitution which can make the pdf file unreadable.

This is the reason why most publishers simply do not accept PDF documents with non-embedded fonts and with bitmapped fonts, see the previous question. Note that recent versions of the epstopdf script default to embedded fonts creation a good source of non-embedded fonts are eps files created by external applications.

Post processing can be done by the Copier of a new File-Format. This is called to copy the pdf from the temp dir to the destination, and can do any post-processing along the way – e. PDFs can be digitally signed, using an X code signing certificate. Acrobat Reader can show and check signatures.

This can be for two purposes: Signatures can be just be a hidden digital hash or be visible on page with text “Digitally signed by Wimble Inc PDFs can be signed using a normal code signing certificate or using an Adobe traceable certificate. Using a normal certificate allows you to verify that files have not been tampered with, and allows people to check the certificate, and who it was signed by.

However Adobe Reader won’t by default, out of the box verify the certificate itself. If you need a normal cert, I got a good deal, and help sorting out problems with Comodo from Mitchell at KSoftware approve sites. So what I can do is use my normal code signing certificate to provide some tamperproofing of documents put on a website.


While I can do binary compare of pdfs on my own website, once they are copied to other sites – which they are – signing provides some protection against tampering adding javascript attacks, changing company name etc.

This is also good for emailed quotes where prices or terms and conditions could be altered later. A digital signature makes it much easier to show in court, 3 years later, that an emailed document was altered, than trying to prove the customers copy is a fake and not your copy.

JsignPDF is used to sign the files. It has a gui, but I want to automatically sign PDF’s when printed or uploaded, so I use a batch file signpdf. The Certificate has been saved as a. PFX file, same as you use with signtool. A Timeserver is needed to give an externally verifed signing time Why? The signature “Digitally signed by Wimble Inc To automatically sign pdf during export, you must create a new post-processing output format.

Set the Copier field to “c: PDF’s have a major limitation as web pages: You need to hyperlink into specific information within them. They are not bookmarks and you cannot link to or jump to bookmarks braindead as this seems.

Hyperref generates them automatically, when exported with pdflatex ps2pdf loses them. Here are some from a file I generated with pdflatex. The obvious problem with this is that they are named using section numbering, not section titles, so adding a new section breaks the link to content.

In a practical sense it renders them rather useless. Hyperref destination renaming explains hyperef naming. Online Named-Destination Lister approve sites Unless you can find what they are, you can’t use them. Acrobat paid version appears to be the only gui tool to view named destinations.

Python is with lyx if you don’t have it e. Pdf’s are compresssed and unreadable normally. Put this in the preamble to make them readable.
