I have a new installation of Lyx 2.0.7. I'm trying to create a minimal nomenclature listing. I've added a single "Nomenclature Entry..." and a single "List / TOC -> Nomenclature". When I try to Update, I get

...
Running: pdflatex  "Arbiter.tex" > nul
19:35:11.984: Error while exporting format: pdf2

and checking the log file I find

...
LaTeX Font Info:    ... okay on input line 14.
No file Arbiter.nls.
(C:\Users\Stout\AppData\Local\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.Hp2560\lyx_tmpbuf2\Arbiter.aux) )

Thanks.

  • Well, as a new user I can't hit answer... so...It appears to be a minor bug. If you create a new document and add just one definition and one table, the file will not compile. I'm not sure, but it appears makeindex is not called. If you add a single printable letter, anything at all, the file will compile. Interestingly, if you delete said printable item after compiling once, the file will continue to compile correctly thereafter. The problem is only exhibited with a NEW document to which only nomenclature definitions and a table are added. – cwm9 Feb 11 '14 at 5:47

It appears to be a minor bug.

If you add a single printable letter, anything at all, the file will compile. Interestingly, if you delete printable item the file will continue to compile correctly for a time.

The problem is only clearly exhibited with a NEW document to which only nomenclature definitions and a table are added.

  • If there's no output page, the .nls file is not written out, because the writing happens when TeX ships out a page. – egreg Feb 11 '14 at 21:03
