In regular text-mode in LyX, I need to use some Greek letters.
I'm inserting the Greek letters by "Insert" - "Special Character" - "Symbols"- "Greek".
What I get is

mu_greek

But, what I would like to get is

enter image description here

My preamble is

%{{ Don't change! times font for proper scaling
\usepackage{mathptmx}
\usepackage[scaled=.90]{helvet}
\usepackage{courier}
%}} times font for proper scaling

\usepackage[numbers,square]{natbib} %see http://merkel.zoneo.net/Latex/natbib.php for usage!
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{xtab, tabularx} %for multipage tables
\usepackage[Sonny]{fncychap} %for the chapter headings
\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{float}

%{{ set double-space
\usepackage{setspace}
\doublespacing
%}} set double-space

%set margins
\usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=1.25in, right=1.25in]{geometry}

% Define your own commands and environment definitions, for example:
\newcommand{\prograenter code herem}[1]{\textbf{#1}} % program names in bold text
\newcommand{\exten}[1]{\texttt{#1}} % file extensions in bold text (use caps)
\newcommand{\cmmd}[1]{\textbackslash\texttt{#1}} % command name in tt font
\newcommand{\enviro}[1]{\texttt{#1}} % environment name in tt font

\newenvironment{definition}[1]{\begin{quote}\emph{#1}:}{\end{quote}}
  % Provides indented formal definition and emphasizes the word.
  % e.g. \begin{definition}{Reliability} ... \end{definition} % Put the document title and page numbers in the header

\pagestyle{headings}
\pagenumbering{roman}

%Place floats within section
\usepackage[section]{placeins}

% To be able to capitalize cross reference
\usepackage{cleveref}
  • Does it work if you just type the letter in (e.g. using a Greek keyboard or copy/paste from somewhere) – scottkosty Jul 2 '18 at 11:45
  • No, it does not. Using a Greek keyboard converts the "mu" into an "m". And copy/paste still results in the funny looking font. – user44756 Jul 2 '18 at 12:18
