I'm trying to create a Layout for user manuals for a couple of software applications we made.

One important aspect of the layout is that it must use TrueType fonts.

In my .lyx documents, I found a "\use_non_text_fonts true" line, and I added to my layout, but it doesn't work.

Where and how I must declare this?

@Leonardo It's not clear what you are asking. What font to use seems to be a distinct issue from what the layout should be. – Seamus Mar 16 '11 at 15:55
What you want to do is to use XeLaTeX with LyX. The following link LyX/XeTeX may be a bit out of date, but should get you started. – Alan Munn Mar 16 '11 at 17:06
@Seamus a "layout" in LyX has nothing to do with lying out the page directly; it's (roughly) LyX's internal representation of a documentclass+engine combination. – Alan Munn Mar 16 '11 at 17:09
@Seamus. I want to create something like a stylesheet for manuals, so, when I change something in it, all affected documents can be updated automatically. – user4277 Mar 16 '11 at 17:19
@Alan, I know that, and in fact, I use XeLaTex. – user4277 Mar 16 '11 at 17:20
