I'm wondering if anyone is aware of a customization of LyX (or similar program) that emulates the workspace found in Scientific Workplace. So, for instance, similar colors, toolbar locations, ways of doing things, etc. I know that it can be customized extensively but want to make sure that nothing of the kind exists before attempting something like this myself.
A quick explanation: I am writing a paper with a (senior) co-author who insists on using Scientific Workplace. No amount of gentle prodding or compatibility-related headaches has made him reconsider his choice of software. Our paper requires formatting that is easy to do in plain LaTeX or LyX but a pain in SWP. There is no Linux version of SWP (my OS) and I haven't got the cash to pay for it(!). I hope that, if I can make everything appear to be the same in LyX, I can get him to convert. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
