comment LyX new macros and instant preview
@Charles: Yes. If I define a command in a preamble, or as a "Math macro", it works in the math preview.

comment LyX new macros and instant preview
@Charles: here, when I put it in the preamble (Document->Settings...->LaTeX Preamble), it renders fine in a preview. If I include it in a ERT, it doesn't. Which is exactly what I would expect. My LyX version is 1.6.7.

comment LyX new macros and instant preview
@Charles: That's strange, when I test this, macros defined in the preamble do seem to be recognized in the preview. Also, it does not seem like it would be difficult for LyX to use the preamble in instant preview, and it would, in my opinion, be quite desirable to do that, since in preamble, you can load packages unsupported by LyX, change fonts, etc, and LyX really should take these into account when generating previews. And, at least on my computer, it does.

comment How can I replace fonts in XeTeX?
What exactly do you mean by "compilation fails"? And what weird symbols do you get?

comment How can I replace fonts in XeTeX?
What system do you use? Which version of XeTeX/fontspec? Are there any messages you get from XeTeX during compilation that could be relevant to this problem?

comment Can one “fold” part of the paragraphs in LyX
I don't think the question is about folding in the resulting pdf. I believe it is about folding in the editor. LyX does have some folding, you can for example fold notes, ERT, tables and other inserts. However, general folding is not, AFAIK, implemented at the moment. It is on the wishlist (wiki.lyx.org/LyX/FeaturePoll2), though.

comment How to use the results of `raw output` to create a smooth plot
@Pieter: no, I still have to use your code. I don't think it will ever be possible to completely dispense of it, since contour plot can easily have several disconnected parts. But with gnuplot 4.4, I do not get the weird gap on the bottom of the curve.

@Pieter: Interesting. Now when i actually tried it, I don't get a gap. It connects nicely for me. Using gnuplot 4.4.

comment Phantom spaces in listings (pdf)
I don't think it should be impossible in this case to have the cake and eat it too. First, listings package seems to create monospaced font by inserteng spaces between characters, but what if you used an actual monospaced font? i tried it with inconsolata, and with flexible columns, the characters seem to all have the same width, but spaces don't. Not sure why, and what is going on there. Second, in PDF, isn't it possible to specify an "alternate" text, that would be selected and pasted, different from what's displayed on the screen?

comment Phantom spaces in listings (pdf)
Interesting thing is that when I use latex to produce dvi, and cut and paste from that, I get spurious spaces only around the parentheses and the quotes. Converting that to pdf with dvipdfm inserts all the other spaces, the same I get when using pdflatex.

comment Phantom spaces in listings (pdf)
I can confirm this. In fact, I gat many more extra spaces, the first line looks like this: SELECT S T _ A r e a ( t h e _ g e o m ). As far as pdf viewer goes, I tried zathura, xpdf, evince and acroread with the exact same result. Converting the document with pdftotext also produces the spaces.
