Adding a shaded background to a floating box

Postby jackd » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:10 pm

Hi all!

I haven't yet been able to figure this out so putting it to the community. I have loaded a module called boxedfloat (http://www.spitzmueller.org/tools/lyx/boxedfloat.module) so that I can add boxes to my document. The float format is preferable since I want them to span a two column file and not interfere with the formatting of the main text. Without using the float module I have a few aesthetic controls over a box including shading th background but I can't figure out a way of shading this extended float type.

Any ideas??


Many thanks
