I hope that this is correct forum. What is the best way to edit a LaTeX file that I have not generated myself?
I am often sent LaTeX files converted to Word for copyediting, however the conversion process causes havoc with the document formatting, symbols and tables.
In order to save the authors time (and distress!) I'd like to be able to edit their files directly as LaTeX - without converting.
Can I do this using the LyX software, or is there a better option?
