The class ubcthesis for thesis submission to the University of British Columbia is based on genthesis. You can redefine the font commands in the preamble. \renewcommand\chapterfont{\scriptsize} \renewcommand\chaptertitlefont{\scriptsize} genthesis uses options to define new sets of matching font commands, ubcthesis resets them partially. Changing the ...

I assume that your wish to avoid seeing the word "microwave" hyphenated as "mi-crowave" anywhere in the document, not just in the bibliography section. If you want to suppress hyphenation of this word globally, just add the instruction \hyphenation{microwave} in the preamble. (If you load the babel package as well, be sure to insert the instruction ...

Let go with a MWE: We wanted move "Some changed here" after "Normal text" without lost the traced changes. Steps to follow: Ctrl+May+E (deactivate change-tracking) Add one-two fake sectioning levels to your document so that the chunk of text to move is now alone in a new section, subsection, or so. If needed, make also a fake section at ...

The basic method to stop hypheantion, entirely (after the macro) is to: \hyphenpenalty=10000 Which basically tells the TeX engine that hyphenation would be really bad, worse than a more ragged line, or stretching words etc. There are others, see http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=hyphoff

Right click on the row of that you want to be the header. Go to "More", then "Settings". Then click on the "Longtable" tab, select "Use long table". Then click on "First header".

Go to Document > Settings > Text Layout. Look at "paragraph separation". You can choose "vertical space".

You can do this with advanced find: Edit > Find & Replace (Advanced). A panel will open on the right. First go to the "Settings" tab in that panel and uncheck "ignore format". Then go back to the "Search" panel, and click in the "Find" field and go to Insert > Insert Regular Expression > Anything. Highlight the whole box that appear (not just the ...

For any other who faced the same problem, I managed to solve it indirect. On LyX go to: tools->preferences->paths-> and in path prefix add the destination of the folder in which you have install maple, mathematica, or any other software. After that, just insert into a math type mode and write the code. Let the cursor in the end of your code and then go ...

Layout Folders There are generally two folders, where LyX searches for .layout files: A system-wide folder (for all users, usually one needs root privileges to alter this) and a user-specific folder in the users home. It depends on your operating system, where exactly these are located. The directories listed in Preferences->Paths are a good starting point. ...

I've been having this problem for years, so I sat down to finally figure it out. Some people suggested it just didn't work on windows. It does. Tested with Windows 7 Enterprise SP1. Lyx 2.1.3, and JabRef 2.10 On Windows, the LyX pipe is not a file. It is a special windows "Named Pipe". A named pipe must have the name \\.\pipe\FOO where FOO can be ...

In my case, it was caused by a Greek symbol pasted directly into body text instead of inside an inline equation. My Lyx file was working fine until I did something and this error showed up, pointing at an equation that had been showing up just fine previously. I discovered that the problem was in fact that I had typed a Greek symbol in standard text (not ...

I would recommend you use BibTeX (or another manager). But if you want to input them directly, in LyX go to the environment dropdown (e.g. in a new document it says "Standard"). Click on it and choose "Bibliography" (it might be the last option). For a keyboard shortcut, do alt + p, and then start typing "bibliography" to filter the dropdown list. Here is a ...

@scottkosty's answer is correct to your question, but as he already mentioned, there is a more efficient and flexible way to create the references table then you asked for. The BibTeX-file can be easily generated by software like JabRef, Mendeley, Zotero or simply an ASCII editor. Very convenient is that most journals and even some libraries offer to ...

I believe I found the problem. Though I am not clear on why this happened, it appears that a number of my floats broke all at once. I had them referenced as "float: Model" (a custom module), and at some point they all were redesignated to the blank float choice. "float: model" appeared instead, but if you clicked on the float tag (the tab on the top left ...

In LyX, go to the Insert menu and choose "Program Listing".

Solved! The problem was that the babel package was outdated. I runned MikTeX 2.9 Updater (Administrator) and I updated all the packages. After that and a LyX reconfiguration it works now.

From what I understand, this is not possible for Flex insets. Looking at the source code, we see that Inset.h has the following /// Is the width forced to some value? virtual bool hasFixedWidth() const { return false; } In the inheritance chain to InsetFlex, this member function is never overriden. Boxes have the following (see InsetBox.cpp): bool ...
