my first post here.
I am trying to use the sidecap module (http://theorie.physik.uni-konstanz.de/jrioux/lyx/20/sidecap.module)to create figure captions on the right-hand side of my figures.
I can add this package to Lyx, and it allows me to insert the new figure type: insert-->float-->Figure (side captions).
If I insert my figure into this float and try to compile to pdf, I get the errors:
"Missing number, treated as zero"
A number should have been here; I inserted `0'.
(If you can't figure out why I needed to see a number,
look up `weird error' in the index to The TeXbook.)
-"Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted)"
Dimensions can be in units of em, ex, in, pt, pc,
cm, mm, dd, cc, nd, nc, bp, or sp; but yours is a new one!
I'll assume that you meant to say pt, for printer's points.
To recover gracefully from this error, it's best to
delete the erroneous units; e.g., type `2' to delete
two letters. (See Chapter 27 of The TeXbook.)
They are given out three more times.
Does someone know what's going on? I am a Latex noob and I am in a hurry with my thesis so I don't have the time to read through endless manuals.
