I recently got into LyX and I’m getting along quite well.
The only thing that bothers me is that LyX’s table feature produces really sloppy-looking tables by default, i.e. double borders and stuff like that.
I would love to tell LyX to use the
tabularx environment by default for the tables I enter via the GUI element, so I can get tables with 100% width matching the justified paragraphs. Concerning the borders, I would like to remove all of them but a
\toprule above and beneath the first row of the table and a
\bottomrule beneath the last row. These features are added by the
ctable package which is included in my document preamble. Is there any way I can achieve these things without performing crazy stuff like regex?
Thanks in advance!
