I'd like to remove the space between the chapter heading and table. This space tend to be much larger than if I just typed (normally) some text after the chapter heading.

How can I do this in LYX? Should I put anything additionally in the preamble?

You know how to add »ERT« = Evil Red Text in Lyx? Move the cursor to the first line after the chapter heading, before the tabular. Insert ERT: \vspace{-2\baselineskip}. Adapt the vertical space to your needs.

Well, this isn't a good solution, obviously. If you have plenty of chapters followed by a tabular, you need a better one. But in this case provide an MWE.

And if your table isn't a tabular, but a table (=float), this solution doesn't work as well, probably...
