I just installed Yosemite 10.10.5 on my imac27 and I ran LYX. I can view the compiled pdf file using cmd+T as usual. Problem is: each time I modify the file and want to see the result on the pdf, the command cmd+T return to document to the first page, instead of staying on the same page. It is very much annoying and make LYX very uncomfortable, I would like preview staying at the same page. After having that problem, I installed the last version of LYX (2.1.5), and of mactex-2015, but nothing changed. Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

  • What function is cmd+T bound to? On your second compile, if go to the GUI and click on the two circular blue arrows (looks like the recycle symbol), does that execute the functionality that you want?

  • cmd+T is in order to view the file in pdf (it is called ps2pdf) ; the command cmd+R do the same (pdflatex). The two blue circular arrows have another erroneous problem : it doesn't jump back to the first page but the modification you have made on the lyx file do not appears on the pdf. And if you click on the pdf file it goes to the first page, then browsing back to the page you wanted, you see that the modification appears.

  • That's to my knowledge something Apple messed up in Yosemite on Preview.app, and the reason I downgraded back to Mavericks.

Converting comment to answer

In my experience, this has to do with Preview.app on Yosemite. You could either

  1. downgrade to Mavericks;
  2. use only the "Show as one page" option in Preview.app, or
  3. Use another PDF viewing application, such as Skim
