comment Tikz code not working in LyX but working in pure Tex
After you make your LyX file, export it (File > Export) to see what the LaTeX is that is being run. Likely there is something different in the preamble (LyX adds stuff to the preamble also)

comment cannot import tex file into LyX
In my opinion this is a duplicate. It could be regarded as its own question if the title is changed to "why can't LyX import files that it exports" as the other question did not have that detail. However, I edited the answer to add that detail.

@JimOldfield good points, although in my opinion this is not a "bug" but rather a "feature request".

comment Is there a nice way to compile a beamer presentation without the pauses?
To change the class settings in LyX, go to Document > Settings and add "handout" to "custom" under "class options". Do not try to add it under the custom LaTeX Preamble.

Actually I post a screen shot because that way it's zoomed in. I'm not sure if you can post PDFs (sorry for the unclear wording of my message).

comment How to use Rnw and bib files in Lyx?
You have two recent questions that have answers that you have not responded to. Please accept them or give feedback on what's wrong with them before posting new questions (I don't think there's a rule against this, it's just my personal opinion). otherwise people might continue to search for questions that do not have accepted answers and spend their time figuring out how to solve them. And yes, please post a MWE. See, for example here: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample

comment Cross-referencing tables generated by xtable
By the way, in my opinion xtable should give you a warning because you specified the label argument but no caption argument. I would normally submit a patch, but the xtable authors haven't been too responsive lately so I'm hesitant to spend the time to do so.

comment Cross-referencing tables generated by xtable
Nice question HBat (complete, simple example). The only thing missing (I know, I'm picky) is that in general it is helpful to show what output you get. e.g. post your PDF or if you encountered an error show which error you get. "I cannot able to" does not describe the output that you got. Welcome to SE!

@TorbjørnT. ah I see. I will add a couple different ways. I'm not sure there is a best way to do this (please edit if you know of a better way)

comment lyx inserting endframe in the wrong place
I believe this is by design. Take a look at the Beamer manual (Help > Specific Manuals > Beamer Presentations). It's extremely informative.

comment Help with Lyx type problem
Did you try what I suggested? I don't know what the home folder is on Windows but you can see it in the Help > About menu. Consider upgrading. The bug you're seeing might have been fixed in a newer version.

comment Help with Lyx type problem
Strange. I haven't seen this happen in my use of LyX on Ubuntu. Which version of LyX are you using and what is your OS? Consider exiting LyX, renaming your home folder, ~/.lyx to something else (to back it up), and restarting LyX (which will regenerate your home folder).
