Hi I'm using Beamer to prepare a presentation and for some weird reason the keystroke has decided to switch to French (it worked fine in the coursebook that I have already prepared).

As far as I can see the language is set everywhere to English UK (I'm using LyX). I've exported the LyX file to plain LaTeX and I can find the following

\usepackage{babel}
\makeatletter
\addto\extrasfrench{%
   \providecommand{\og}{\leavevmode\flqq~}%
   \providecommand{\fg}{\ifdim\lastskip>\z@\unskip\fi~\frqq}%
}

I have no idea where the \extrasfrench comes from. Has this been introduced by Babel?

My colleagues tell me to keep the French keystrokes just for the entertainment value, but I would really rather like to switch them back to English!

I think it happened when copy/pasting bits of code from one LyX document to another. If I highlight everything with Crtl+A right click, choose Language and English this seems to resolve the problem. –  Joanne Demmler Apr 5 '13 at 10:30
    
Is this possibly a bug in LyX? I think it only happened on my Linux version, but worked fine in Windows. –  Joanne Demmler Apr 18 '13 at 19:33
    
If you can reproduce this, and you think this is a bug, notify the LyX developers by adding a ticket in the bug tracker. If you're unsure, perhaps ask on the mailing list first. –  Torbjørn T. Aug 3 '13 at 21:18
    
This question appears to be off-topic because it looks like a bug in Lyx. –  Joseph Wright Sep 7 '13 at 21:16
