# Using PGF in Lyx

I just tried coping & pasting code from How to draw Venn diagrams (especially: complements) in LaTeX

and I get errors ... I suppose I need to install/configure Lyx to use PGF/Tikz?

You need to add \usepackage{tikz} to your preamble (I think you can do this by selecting LaTeX preamble from the Layout menu). –  Jake Aug 28 '11 at 12:42
I think you should change the Editor. I think in cases like this LyX reaches his capability –  Marco Daniel Aug 28 '11 at 13:25
@Jake, I added \usepackage{tikz} under Document > Settings > LaTeX preamble I still got the same error. –  Jiew Meng Aug 28 '11 at 13:46
@Marco, what editors do you recommend? –  Jiew Meng Aug 28 '11 at 13:46
@Jake, thanks you got me on the right track! I needed \usepackage{pgfplots} too –  Jiew Meng Aug 28 '11 at 13:49
