I wish to write a (math) document in Hebrew, but that will contain some English (and math), currently the LyX starts a new document in LTR and I do not know how to change the language to Hebrew (I was told that F11 or F12 might work, but they didn't).

My question is: how can I make a keybord shortcut to change the language to Hebrew, and how can I define a new document to be RTL ?

Help is very much appriciated!

you have to define Lyx to work in Hebrew, use this guide: Hebrew for Lyx setup

Good luck!

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – canaaerus Aug 3 '12 at 16:05
