Hello I'm new in using LyX 2.0.6 with MacTex, and I'd try to import a citation style (file named
plos2009.bst from http://www.ploscompbiol.org/static/latexGuidelines) into the BibTex style folder.
I added the
.bst file with reference to the way suggested: http://www.flukylogs.blogspot.com/2009/09/install-style-files-in-lyx.html (I have tried both methods of directly dragging the .bst file to the folder and using the terminal).
After reconfigure LyX the new citation style of "plos2009" appeared under the "style" scroll bar in "insert -> citation". However the PDF document generated only contain [?] instead of the reference number. Instead there is no such problem if the
.bst file was moved to the desktop and linking it by pressing "Browse" in "insert -> citation".
There was no problem in using the pre-exist citation style inside LyX like Vancouver style. I would like to know the reason.
