comment In Lyx turn greyed out text into comments
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}.

comment In Lyx turn greyed out text into comments
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.

comment In Lyx find a word and replace with ERT
+1 Thank you for the response. Say I'm trying to replace the word DNA with the LaTeX code \gls{DNA} for it's glossary entry. I'm using the version 2 pre-release candidate and I can confirm this works. If I try and do the reverse though it does not work.
