I try to write a inline formula including a greater than sign:

$A < B$

If I use the above formula in an empty document it works fine, but in my full document it will just not show up. But I can see the additional space that is included due to the presence of the "greater than" sign.

I am using LyX with the classicthesis format.

Any Ideas where I could start looking?


I've found the solution. I have set the default roman font in the LyX document, which I did not want to.

\font_roman utopia

This has caused the problem.

As for the minimal working example. I did not find a good way to do this with LyX, as it is not generating soucecode as Latex does. And LyX documents are not mentionend in the default MWE article.

  • My preamble has \usepackage{acronym}. Is there a way to upload the minimal example on this website?

The problem occurs because of a conflict between classicthesis and the fourier package, which is loaded because you've set Utopia as the Roman font. Set the Roman font to Default in Document --> Settings --> Fonts, and things should work fine.
