I recently updated my Lyx installation on Windows, and have noticed that when I press CTRL+B in math mode, it is now producing \boldysymbol{} instead of \mathbf{}. I would like to get it back to producing \mathbf{}. What may have caused this, and how can I fix it?


What caused the change for you, I do not know. The default bindings are Ctrl+B for font-boldsymbol and Ctrl+Alt+B for font-bold, and you can exchange them in the preferences.

  • Yup, they were reversed. Not sure how that happened. Thanks! – sparc_spread Dec 12 '16 at 22:25
