comment How to Add Whitespace to Lyx?
@Peter in LyX look at Document > Settings > Text Layout. There are options for indentation and spacing, at the document level. For more fine-grained spacing (e.g. one time spacing), put the cursor where you want to add space and go to Insert > Formatting, then choose "Horizaontal space" or "vertical space".

comment How to center a table in TeX code using lyx?
In addition to the LaTeX code, if you want a LyX solution please also post a .lyx file. For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment In-line citation using cross-referenced bibliography
@The_Arrow_Student no further suggestion. If you give a minimal example, someone might be able to help. For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment In-line citation using cross-referenced bibliography
My guess is that in References.lyx you inserted the references manually and did not use a .bib databse. Is that right? The best way in LyX is to use a .bib file. Then you can use that .bib file for any of your documents.

comment Adding an environment to LyX for dividing a proof into steps
You can create your own layout (the thing that controls how LyX does something and which command it does to do it). It is just a simple text file, no C++ programming required. However, it would take some time. See Help > Customization. Also look at the examples in the lib/layouts folder.

comment LyX say that no classes are available
The problem is that LyX does not appear to find the MiKTeX installation. I've seen several issues like this which are specific to Windows. See for example lyx.org/trac/ticket/9303 and lyx.org/trac/ticket/9256

comment LyX: text inside a LaTeX command not exported in XHTML
@Rasmus True, that would make sense also. Or maybe we would want a different type of inset that does the same thing but is called differently so that both can be used simultaneously without messing up the other.

comment Insert labels inside table rows
@TMS even when you think it is clear, it is always preferred to post a minimal example. There are other reasons than clarity (see e.g. wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample)

comment Nomenclature section
Hi Omid and welcome to SE! For your next example, could you please give a complete minimal example (like karlkoeller did)? Since you are using LyX, you can actually just paste the .lyx file since it is just a text file. For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment How to generate a professional table in LyX?
OK good to know. In that case if you have an idea for how to make it easy (e.g. what would you like to be able to do? Click on a check box option?), please write a feature request at lyx.org/trac . Please be as detailed as possible. Give 1. the LaTeX code that you would like to produce by using LyX and 2. the way in LyX that you would like to achieve this. This feedback would really help us.

Actually I think it is more up to LyX to support booktabs. And it already does, since version 1.5.0. See Help > Embedded Objects. Search for "booktabs" or just go to the section titled "Formal Tables".

comment Writing Hebrew With LyX
I would say the first step is to try to compile LyX's Hebrew documents. They are in lib/doc/he/. If you cannot do that, you probably need fonts. I don't know how that works on Mac.

comment Double quotes rendering before paragraph in XHTML export
Note that we are working on releases 2.1.3 and 2.2 so if you report it there's a chance we could fix it by then.

comment Double quotes rendering before paragraph in XHTML export
I can reproduce. This is a bug in LyX (in my opinion). Can you please post a bug report at lyx.org/trac ?

Thanks for finding this bug, Torbjørn T. I reported it and it was fixed (by Georg Baum) in LyX for version 2.2.0. For more details, see lyx.org/trac/ticket/9011
