Decrease Timeout of PDFLaTeX

Postby baaldfg on Thu Mar 7th, 2013

Hi,

I have a small problem with LyX to which I was unable to find an answer.

I am writing my PhD thesis with LyX. The document has grown quite large with lots of figures, references and equations. If I try to create a PDF of the whole document using PDFLaTeX a message appears several times which says:
The command
pdflatex -synctex=-1 "Thesis.tex"
has not yet completed.
Do you want to stop it?

I have to click "Let it run" several times to complete the document. It is really annoying. However, it only happens if I create the whole document. The individual chapters can be created without this message appearing. Thus, I think it is a timeout and has something to do with the size of the document.

Is it possible to decrease or even disable the timeout for PDFLaTeX?


Best wishes,
Christian

It's a problem with LyX, I suspect, not with PDFLaTeX. You can try exporting it to LaTeX and then running PDFLaTeX at the shell to verify that.

This is indeed a feature of LyX. I think the timeout time is hard coded. There have been some requests to change it but I don't think anything has happened with them. You could post a feature request here: http://www.lyx.org/trac
