If you look at this picture

you can see, that LyX generated the pagenumber where I cited book [2].

How can I surpress that behaviour?

    Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) so we can see which packages you are using etc. One cause may be that hyperef is loaded with the backref option. Nov 8, 2012 at 19:29

I just had to deactivate backreferences in

-> Document settings
   -> PDF-Settings
      -> Hyperlinks
         -> Backreferences
            Select "Off" in Drop-Down-Menu

I don't know the exact english words for every single entry above. See screenshot for a possible better clarification.

  • Glad my suggestion helped. Your translations look good, but I don't have LyX installed on my system, so may be someone who does can check them. Nov 9, 2012 at 12:09
