Re: Why LyX?

Postby kewapo » Fri Sep 06, 2013 11:38 am

I have made a comparative study of the quality between Microsoft Word and Lyx.
I wrote the same document in Word and Lyx 2.0.6 and wrote in a pdf file.

When I had open the two documents and zoom them at 1600% the quality of the pdf made in word is much greater than the pdf made in Lyx.

One of the main reason to choose lyx is the quality.

Where is the quality here? I am thinking to leave Lyx.

You might be using a bitmap font. See for example, here:

But you might just want to choose Word instead. You will have to google something once and ask for help once in a while to figure out LaTeX/LyX and if that makes you uncomfortable then Word/Libre Office might be a better fit for you.

As far as quality, LaTeX/LyX is better than Word/Libre Office.

Thanks a lot.
I'd changed the predetermined font with the Latin Modern fonts and the pdf result is ¡PERFECT!. (Document > Settings > Fonts > Roman > Latin Modern Roman, etc...)

When you create new documents in LyX the font that the program choose are 'Computer Modern Roman/Sans/Mono' and not the 'Latin Modern Roman/Sans/Mono'

Now other question: How I can change this initial 'Computer Modern' fonts by the 'Latin Modern' ones, and not document by document?

I have found it.
When you change this fonts in your document, there is a check box: use as predetermined in all documents.

Thank you.
