I have a LaTeX Equation that I am trying to insert in my LyX document as in the attached imageEquation in LyX So, I Click Ctrl+L to insert TeX code inside that numbered equation but it doesn't work. It only works when I Enter the LaTeX equation in the TeX Code (Ctrl+L) but outside the numbered equation (that is shown in the image). Is there a way I can work around it to have TeX Code inside a numbered equation?


You can copy and paste the LaTeX equation directly into the box for a numbered equation without using Ctrl+L. I often write the equation in an online GUI or MathType, then copy the equation directly into Lyx's numbered equation.

  • I tried it but the symbols of the LaTeX doesn't work on LyX – Guest Aug 7 '19 at 19:57
  • You are actually right, I have to copy what's between the dolar signs $ and directly paste it in the numbered equation in LyX. Thank you. – Guest Aug 7 '19 at 20:12
