Example text

There are several different kinds of boxes, but the only one you need to know is the “minipage”. A minipage is treated just exactly as though it were a separate page. A variation on the theme is a “Shadowbox”. Here is an example which also shows how footnotes are treated: This is a “shadowbox”a minipage with a column width of 50% and aligned at the “top”. a Choose from the menu by right clicking on the box. I put the box on the right side of the page by inserting a “horizontal fill” to the left of the box.

This is discussed below at page 41. This will probably give you all you need to submit your manuscript for printing, but if you are really picky about things, you will also want to read the chapter on “Fine tuning”: see Chapter 9 on page 49. Chapter 4 Adding pictures Most books other than novels will have some illustrations or pictures. In this brief chapter, I will show you how to include graphic illustrations. LYX can handle a wide variety of formats. My own view is that the png format is best for black and white illustrations.

2 The half-title page verso The next page, the “verso” of the short title page, should be blank. To be safe, put something non-printing on it. I inserted a “protected space” by typing C-space. Sometimes LATEX is so smart that it leaves out a completely blank page, so we fool it with the protected space. Follow this with another page break. 3 The title page The next page is the full title page. I put a couple of horizontal lines on either side of the title and author (Insert → Special Formatting → Horizontal line).
