comment In Lyx turn greyed out text into comments
It's personal preference, I certainly understand why some people don't use it. As with any piece of software it has it's flaws. Just because most people don't use Linux doesn't mean Linux isn't worth using. I have written my thesis in Lyx and I like the outlining features and commenting features. It has more to offer than Word or Kile for me. I have created presentations in Lyx and find it better than Power Point with a much better result. In short, I don't want to give up on Lyx because of some setbacks, I find it to be great software overall and I will invest time to find solutions.

I do use ERTs if that's what you mean. If you have a solution to this problem using ERTs that would be great.

comment How to write raw text verbatim in LyX?
+1 because I don't think an earnest and competent attempt at help should ever result in -1.

I'm sorry, I'm pretty new. What does "The comment environment doesn't stack" mean? If you could refer me to some short documentation to read to understand that statement that would be great.

The command \renewenvironment{lyxgreyedout}[0]{\begin{comment}}{\end{comment}} in the preamble returns one error begin{lyxgreyedout} on input line 2105 ended by \end{document}.

Lyx has a predefined environment for lyxgreyout. When I add \excludecomment{lyxgreyedout} to the preamble of the document, I get many errors saying Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup and a short description of where the error occurs says \end{lyxgreyedout}. I find that it is possible to convince lyx to do what you want but when overriding it's default behavior I get these kinds of errors sometimes.

I added the lyx tag, though I have had bad success getting help whenever I mention lyx. No one takes the question seriously. Most of the time the first answer is don't use lyx.

+1 this seems like a great solution. Ultimately I want to use this for the to redefine the lyx command \lyxgreyedout, however \excludecomment{lyxgreyedout} doesn't work. I have rolledback the title change in the hopes that a solution to the more general case of redefining an environment will work.
