I am a recent user of Lyx. In settings, I have chosen the French language, but after compiling my text, symbols Itemize (dot, dash, star, small point) all have the same shape (the dash). At each level, it is always a tiret. I have tried to add to the beginning of the document this TeX command \noextrasfrancais but still have the same problem.

  • The correct way should be to add \frenchbsetup{StandardItemLabels=true} after \usepackage[french]{babel}

You should add \frenchbsetup{StandardItemLabels=true} in your preamble:



\item a
\item b
\item c
\item d
\item e
\item f
\item g


enter image description here

How to do it in LyX is beyond my knowledge.

    One can add stuff to the preamble by going to Document --> Settings --> LaTeX Preamble. Commented Nov 5, 2012 at 22:59
