To view my document in LyX (Windows), I click the view button and it compiles a PDF. But it does this by opening multiple (around but not always 5) instances/windows of the same PDF file in Acrobat reader and its really annoying. Does anyone who how to stop this? (Im using MikTex 2.9 if that useful)

  • Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling both LyX and Acrobat reader (I know, obvious suggestion)? Otherwise I'd try resetting your LyX preferences. You might have accidentally messed something up. – Dennis Jan 2 '13 at 20:49
  • There should also be an »update« button next to the »view« button which shouldn't open the pdf but only update it. – cgnieder Jan 5 '13 at 22:05
