When I export my lyx file into *.tex it always create hard line break no matter how I do I adjust the word wrapping settings. I'm wondering whether anyone has the same problem and knows how to solve it. Thank you!

    Why is that a problem? Does it affect PDF output? Often when you ask a question it is useful if you mention why something is a problem. It is OK to say something like "I just like it like this" (sometimes I have questions like that) but otherwise it is helpful to know what you're really after. – scottkosty Dec 9 '15 at 6:04

    a linebreak in the tex source is the same as a space – David Carlisle Dec 9 '15 at 7:35

    The linebreaks within a paragraph in the source text have no any effect in the PDF, but if this is a problem when edited, there are many tools to fix that, for example here. – Fran Dec 9 '15 at 8:26
  • For me this is a problem if I want to use a grammar checking tool on the source file. – Aquadarius Jun 19 at 4:53

From the LyX wiki:

If you do not want any line breaks within paragraphs, set Tools→Preferences→Output→General→Output line length to 0.
