comment Create a “yearbook-style” multi-page layout of photos
I bit off a lot with this problem, hopefully not more than I can chew. How can an existing solution in a programing language be integrated with a LaTeX output?

Interesting @ScottH. that is a good lead.

Is there an algorithm that gives an approximate solution? This seems like a very general problem with many applications, surely someone must have come up with some quick and dirty way of solving it (not manually).

This may seem like a silly question but how can I google "*skip"? Is there a good page on it?

Removing '\textheight=10in' solves the problem. I will look into making the formatting easier to maintain as you suggested. I was using a template.

This is useful information and I may use it in the future. However for this question I DO want some items to show on one page and continued on the next. What I don't want is some items to show on the first page and the remaining items skipped entirely with the next page starting at the next section. That is my problem.

Someone should just ask as a question why anyone uses Lyx and then I could answer it thoroughly once and then link to my answer every subsequent time someone asks.

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.

+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.
