When the devnagari or hindi font was used on Lyx, the font appear as a garbage on Lyx GUI. This can be easily seen by pasting "इस पृष्ठ पर इन्टरनेट पर उपलब्ध विभिन्न हिन्दी एवं देवनागरी सम्बंधित साधनों की कड़ियों की सूची है। इसमें ऑनलाइन एवं ऑफ़लाइन उपकरण शामिल हैं।" on lyx document. What can be done to improve the appearance even if pdf generated is properly rendered. Here is the minimal example http://wiki.lyx.org/uploads/Windows/Devanagari/Devanagari-Test.lyx

  • I would guess the font used in LyX does not have deonagari glyphs. You can change the font in Tools --> Preferences --> Look and Feel --> Screen Fonts, but I cannot help you with finding a font that supports this alphabet. – Torbjørn T. Dec 31 '13 at 11:38
  • Can you please post a minimal example .lyx file and a screenshot of how it looks for you? – scottkosty Dec 31 '13 at 11:41
  • Changing the font of Gui does not help – Vaibhav Oct 17 '14 at 9:48
  • Yes. That is correct . But that seem to on Linux. I am using windows – Vaibhav Oct 18 '14 at 17:47
  • @user34083 what version of LyX are you using? When you respond to me, if you do not use @ followed by my user name, I will not be notified. Luckily I remembered to check back here. – scottkosty Oct 19 '14 at 6:28

Perhaps you just need to update your LyX version. I have no idea if the following are correct, but they do not look like "garbage" to me (it looks quite pretty to me). Can you confirm that it is the correct output?

The following is from both LyX 2.1.2, which seems identical to the output from the development version of LyX (2.2.0dev). My OS is Ubuntu.

Here is my LyX output from Devangari-test:
