dark background on Lyx Mac

I logged in as administrator and searched for the preferences file in the Lyx directories but did not find it. Apparently, Lyx only saves a file if the user changes any settings. I did look for the background color in the Lyx preferences and the default color was the usual cream color not the dark ...

dark background on Lyx Mac

Now, as to why the colors are screwed up in the first place for user accounts and not for the admin, this seems like a bug to me but I will leave it to someone more knowledgeable about Macs to post the bug. Could you open a new trac ticket for this? Also can you post your "preferences" fi...

dark background on Lyx Mac

Thanks for the details. Yes, it's unfortunate the lists are down. There was a hard drive failure. We're hoping to have this fixed soon, and also eventually move to a more robust system to avoid similar problems in the future. As for the bug, is this the same as https://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/10740 ?

Restoring the default bind file in LyX Topic is solved

laposte, do you still have the old original preferences file? I would like to take a look. It's possible we can fix a bug.

Math Symbols Missing After Being Updated to Win10 1703

I never have a chance to try it so am not sure if this works. Maybe people with a similar problem can try it if reinstalling MikTeX and LyX doesn't work. Yes this would be good to know. Also, if anyone is interested in testing 2.3.0rc1 (which will be hopefully released soon), it would be good to kn...

Math Symbols Missing After Being Updated to Win10 1703

It might be a system font that is missing? I don't know. Unfortunately I've heard about a lot of problems like this on Windows. It looks the same as this one: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/386454/math-symbols-displayed-incorrectly-in-lyx I wish I could help more, but I really don't have an...

"XeTeX is taking a long time" popup

Definitely not that fancy. My guess is that it's a flat timer (which calculates time based on the wall clock). Note also that when LyX gives the popup, it doesn't pause the process, so I don't think any time is lost. There is only an annoyance of having to click on the dialog. But this is what's co...

"XeTeX is taking a long time" popup

Hi Stefan, I build/install software from source (gentoo), so "installing updates" means a couple hours of all eight cores running at 100%. This is what I was doing when I was getting timeout popups. Now, with the system more or less idle, I don't get them. I don't believe there is an opti...

Firefox requires Parallels Desktop to operate. Please install Parallels Desktop and try again.

If even the default splash does not compile, you probably have a corrupt installation.
