comment Warning: uncodable character in LyX lstlisting
Makes sense. I think you should answer your question. The workarounds you've mentioned are as good as it gets for this case, I think. Unless there's a way to get the output correct for XeTeX. I don't know why it compiled without error but did not show correctly.

comment If I have a double quote ' " ' in my text it shows up in the pdf as \textquotedbl{}
@cfr thanks. I suppose the best then is that the OP past them here. .lyx files are just text files after all.

files are OK with me since the question has already been answered

Can you post the problematic .lyx file and your solution .lyx file? I would like to take a look to see if there is a bug in LyX.

comment view dependencies within lyx file
Whatever you do, make sure you back up everything before removing any files. In addition to \listfiles, you could go to File > Export > LyX Archive. If I remember correctly, that does not pick up everything though.

comment Warning: uncodable character in LyX lstlisting
From what I understand, this problem is because the listings package cannot deal with multi-byte encodings, so I don't think there is anything that LyX can do to help other than warn you of the problem. One possible solution is to use XeTeX and non-TeX fonts. I tried the FreeSans fonts. It compiles without error for me but the display is not correct. For more information, see lyx.org/trac/ticket/8439#comment:2

comment Stop lyx from compiling
@G.M. I would say add that as the answer. There is no other way to solve it currently.

comment lyx to pdf faulty
Can you please post a minimal example .lyx file? Also, you might consider testing LyX 2.2.0rc1, which might have fixed a bug you could be running into. You can download it at ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-2.2/lyx-2.2.0rc1

comment Prevent formulas from execution
Do you know how this changed? I do not think that LyX changed this behavior automatically so is it possible that you turned on Instant Preview (as G.M. below discusses) and then forgot that you did that? The reason I ask is that this question has come up a few times and I want to confirm that it was the user that turned on instant preview in the first place (because again, LyX should not be doing that).

comment How to insert /_/ in lyx math mode?
@dzhelil thanks for the example. The only workaround I can think of is to put the entire math expression in ERT. So in this example you would put the following $/_/$ in an ERT box. Of course that is not nice but I can't think of a better way. Note for the future that a .lyx file is just text so you can actually just paste it into your question instead of linking to an external file.

comment How to insert /_/ in lyx math mode?
I don't think you can insert custom LaTeX in math mode. We can probably find a workaround though. Can you provide a minimal example .lyx file? I don't use xymatrix so it will be easier to start with this. For now just put /_{/} and I'll know that's the place where you want /_/. For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment preprocessing of LaTeX document before compiling in LyX
sorry I am currently spending most of my free time to help with the LyX 2.2.0 release (which will be out soon). Hopefully someone else can provide a full answer. I hope my comment at least points you in the right direction for developing the solution yourself. The information you'll learn by doing it yourself about LyX converters and file formats will be very helpful to understanding LyX. It would be a good investment of time.

comment preprocessing of LaTeX document before compiling in LyX
Yes, you can either create your own LyX converter from LaTeX -> PDF that calls a simple script that does the manipulation and then just runs LaTeX. If you do that, you need to handle all the LaTeX commands (e.g. know how many times to call pdflatex, bibtex, etc. Another approach is to create a new format PDF_customized, then create a converter LaTeX -> LaTeX_customized and then LaTeX_customized->PDF_customized. It will take some time for you to learn how to do this, but all of the information is in Help > Customization.

comment How to make a matrix that wolfram and symbolab can read (ideally through lyx) dsafds
@HanMah I believe you are correct that this is the policy. It is difficult for me also when one of my questions is answered. I also have the reaction and desire to want to thank someone beyond the mechanical clicking of the checkmark, but I think that is the policy.

@Yoar by the way, please provide a minimal example in the future. Werner's questions would have been answered if you had just provided an example. For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment How to make a Lyx shortcut for a math expression
Ah so the problem is that you cannot add that as a shortcut? Can you please give the exact steps you took (e.g. I clicked here, entered this, etc.) and what happened?
