I am trying to make a presentation in hebrew using lyx. I tryed beamer but it did not go well. Then I tryed powerdot, but when I compiled the document (ps2pdf) no hebrew was displayed (empty document). Does someone know how to solve the problem? or another way to create presentations in hebrew? The tool I want to use is lyx, and not latex editor. Thanks for helpers!

Here is the document I compiled (with ps2pdf) and I got an empty pdf file:

\documentclass[english,hebrew]{powerdot}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[cp1255]{inputenc}
\setlength{\parindent}{0bp}
\usepackage{babel}
\begin{document}
\title{דג}\maketitle
\end{document}

Here is a file I compiled with ps2pdf:

\lyxformat 474

    Welcome to TeX.SX! This is a bit too vague, I'm afraid. Could you make a couple of short examples that fail? – egreg Oct 13 '14 at 16:22
  • updated. The problem is even in the most naive examples. – Shlomi Oct 13 '14 at 16:33
  • @Shlomi can you please post a .lyx file with your attempt? Can you compile the Hebrew example files that come with LyX? They all compile for me on Ubuntu with LyX 2.1.2. It's just a matter of getting the right fonts installed and recognized. What operating system do you use? – scottkosty Oct 13 '14 at 17:54
  • I can compile it and see the output in an ordinary file but not powerdot. I am using Windows 7. How can I post a file? Now I get another problem that I cannot see hebrew when I compile with xetex, even in an article. I think the problems are related – Shlomi Oct 13 '14 at 18:04
  • @Shlomi If you do not notify me with @ followed by my username, I will not know that you are responding to me (unless I happen to remember to check back). The .lyx file is just a text file. You can open it in a text editor and copy/paste. – scottkosty Oct 13 '14 at 20:19
