I wish to write a (math) document in Hebrew, but that will contain some English (and math), currently the LyX starts a new document in LTR and I do not know how to change the language to Hebrew (I was told that F11 or F12 might work, but they didn't).

My question is: how can I make a keybord shortcut to change the language to Hebrew, and how can I define a new document to be RTL ?

Help is very much appriciated!

you have to define Lyx to work in Hebrew, use this guide: Hebrew for Lyx setup

Good luck!
