I am writing lecture notes in LyX 2.1 on Windows and I have recently enabled hyperref in document settings and since then I get strange crossed L marks before every formula I put, e.g.:

enter image description here

Anybody knows how can I solve it? Maybe I'm missing a crucial package?

EDIT: The mwe is available at http://textuploader.com/onny

and on TeX format:

 breaklinks=false,pdfborder={0 0 1},backref=false,colorlinks=false]
\subsection{Hyperbolic equations without humuganous conditions}
Take a look at the equations of the form:
u_{tt} & = & a^{2}u_{xx}+g\left(x,t\right),\quad0<x<\l,t>0\\
u\left(x,t\right)\bigg|_{t=0} & = & f\left(x\right)\\
\difrac{u\left(x,t\right)}t\bigg|_{t=0} & = & F\left(x\right)\nonumber \\
u\left(0,t\right) & = & \mu_{1}\left(t\right)\\
u\left(\ell,t\right) & = & \mu_{2}\left(t\right)\nonumber 
Use the method from $\left(4.28\right)$on $\nu\left(x,t\right)$
v\left(\l,t\right)=\l A\left(t\right)+B\left(t\right)=\mu_{2}\left(t\right) & \Rightarrow A\left(t\right)=\frac{\mu_{2}\left(t\right)B\left(t\right)}{\l}

    Please provide a MWE. You can create this in LyX, save and then open the document using a text editor. Paste that content as your MWE. Please make sure compression is not enabled when saving. – Nigel Nov 19 '14 at 3:44
  • Yes please provide a .lyx MWE: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample . Also, if the issue you see is only there when using Hebrew, this is important to know. – scottkosty Nov 19 '14 at 3:50
  • I uploaded a MWE in English. Hebrew seems to be (allegedly) irrelevant. – Danis Fischer Nov 19 '14 at 3:51
  • @DanisFischer the Hebrew is relevant. I can reproduce the problem you see. If I then select all and then go to Edit > Language and click on English (even if there is already a check), the problem goes away for me. – scottkosty Nov 19 '14 at 4:01

    What happens if you get rid of the macro \l and simply write \ell everywhere instead of \l? – Mico Nov 19 '14 at 6:44

hyperref together with Hebrew and pdftex has never worked properly. However, recently I had success with modern versions of XeTeX in which hyperref and Hebrew do work together.

You can follow this tutorial to set LyX to typeset Hebrew using XeTeX.
