comment Is it possible to change the color character by character in Lyx?
Can you give a minimal example that spat out error messages? What were the error messages? For more information, see wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment LyX: text inside a LaTeX command not exported in XHTML
How do you export? File > Export > ? LyXHTML or HTML? If "HTML", then a follow-up question: what is the converter that you use defined as (specifically, the command) in Tools > Preferences > File Handling

comment Edit figure numbering in LyX
In LaTeX, the idea is that the numbers of floats are handled automatically. This avoids a lot of common errors. If you go to Document > Settings > Modules and add "Number Figures by Section", then compile. Does it work for you? Note that often the output in PDF is different from that in LyX so always test with the compiled (PDF) document.

comment Why an online equation editor cannot be used to produce matrices in LYX?
You should be able to go to Edit > Paste Special > Paste From LaTeX in LyX 2.1.x. If that doesn't work, please open a bug report at lyx.org/trac

comment Implement shortcut in LyX for Itemize environment nested under Lemma
You can have a lot of control over things like this. For creating the shortcut, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/208510/… . For creating your own itemize environment, see Help > Customization. You probably want to work off of the already implemented itemize layout (which is just an external text file, it is not in the C++ code of LyX). It is defined in stdlists.inc

comment How can I revive a phantom text?
@ErelSegalHalevi thank you for opening a bug report. For reference, it was opened here: lyx.org/trac/ticket/9353.

comment How can I revive a phantom text?
@ErelSegalHalevi I have no idea. I would be interested in the answer to that myself. You might consider posting another question. Once we get the answer for LaTeX we can think about how to do it in LyX. Also note that support for phantom is relatively new in LyX so it is not surprising that it is not well polished.

comment How can I revive a phantom text?
@ErelSegalHalevi ah, now I see what you mean. The formatting is lost when you create the phantom, not when you remove it. I do not know much about this, but my guess is that it is a bug in LyX that we let you create a phantom if you have nested insets. Could you please post a bug report at lyx.org/trac ?

comment How can I revive a phantom text?
Hi Erel, next time please give more details. Instead of "I made a certain section 'phantom'", you could give the steps that you took to make a section phantom. Second, please consider giving a minimum working example (see here for more info: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample). There might be several ways to make a phantom, and I'm not sure which one you did. Finally, consider posting the version number of LyX that you use.

comment LyX: Blank box in available citations
I have never heard of something like this. Can you please post an MWE (in this case that would be an MWE .lyx file and an MWE .bib file). See here for more information: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment How to make gv (DOT) files work under LyX
@badp Ah so you are not seeing that issue, it is the OP. I see now. Thanks for getting back to me on it.

comment How to make gv (DOT) files work under LyX
@badp a probably reason for why LyX would export the graph to PNG is because no one has reported this bug. Please help us fix it by reporting it with a minimal example at lyx.org/trac

comment Ș and ș: the “character is uncodable in verbatim paragraphs” error
As far as it being weird that there are bugs in LyX, it is not surprising to me. There are many bugs in LyX, both known and unknown, and I expect this to continue in the future. In this case, it might be difficult because none of our developers writes in Romanian. We want to fix bugs such as this but we rely on quality bug reports to fix bugs that we do not come across ourselves.

comment Ș and ș: the “character is uncodable in verbatim paragraphs” error
that bug was marked as fixed. The only reason it is left open is because I need to put in a test case to protect against regressions. If you are using 2.1.2 then either the bug was not fully fixed (the commit says "ugly fix" so the author recognizes there might be problems), or you are seeing a different bug. Can you please send an email to lyx-devel@lists.lyx.org or post on that bug report?

comment Grammar checker at Lyx on Windows 7
I have not heard of any issues of either kind. Also, .lyx files are completely cross-platform. However, my point was more that it would be helpful if you would put such information in your question next time.
