I create a slide using the beamer template in LyX using the following steps:

  1. Set environment to Frame
  2. Edit the Frame title to "Test"
  3. Press the right arrow and enter, change environment to itemize

Lyx automatically inserts \end{frame} after the \begin{frame}{test} without inserting my itemize environment in between. If instead I simply type a bunch of text instead of an itemize environment then things are fine.

I am using LyX 2.1. This did not happen in previous versions of LyX.

I do not include MWE as I would like somebody to repeat my steps to see if they are seeing the same issue.

  • I believe this is by design. Take a look at the Beamer manual (Help > Specific Manuals > Beamer Presentations). It's extremely informative. – scottkosty Jun 30 '14 at 1:53

I see the same, but hit the Tab key after starting the itemize, and it is moved within the frame. Alt + Shift + or Edit --> Increase list depth does the same.

The manual (Help --> Specific manuals --> Beamer presentations) does mention this, although without specific mention of lists:

  • yes i have noticed this as well. this might be a bug or simply how the 2.1 version of LyX works, i cannot tell... – Alex Jun 29 '14 at 21:17

    @Alex If you suspect a bug, ask in the LyX mailing list, or simply add an issue in the bug tracker. – Torbjørn T. Jun 29 '14 at 21:19
  • good idea - i'll mark you answer as correct – Alex Jun 29 '14 at 21:22
