How to make a dictionary with LyX ? I found this page about this in LaTeX. The \newenvironment and \newcommand i put in Preamble or inside the text?

\newenvironment and \newcommand have to go into the preamble "Document > Settings ... > LaTeX Preamble".

Note that they will not automatically create new styles. Unfortunately, you have to write LyX styles yourself. (For more details, see "Help > Customization" in LyX, and an example is here.)

Alternatively, you could use "TeX code" / ERT (Ctrl-L) and write LaTeX directly, but then there is not much gain in using LyX. Or - if the dictionary is only a part of your document - you can include LaTeX code via "Insert > File > Child Document" using "Include Type: Input".
