How to force the bibliography to respect the document's quotation style?

Yes, I did look into the bst file but can't make much sense of the syntax, also looked at some documentation but it's probably faster to modify the bibliography by hand than studying that material. Unfortunately custom-bib doesn't have that setting. Alas there is probably plenty of advice on how to ...

How to force the bibliography to respect the document's quotation style?

How to make the quotations in your bibliography respect the quotation style the user has selected from Document>Settings>Language? For example, let's say the bibliography style puts article names in quotes (e.g. IEEEtran), the quotes don't come out as specified in Settings. I'm currently using older...

Bibliographic citation format

If you want to have the bibliography entries written as e.g. "Einstein, A. (1905)", go to Settings->Bibliography and there set Citation style to Natbib and Natbib-style to Author-year.

Sorting bibliography with umlauts according to a non-English alphabet

I'm trying to have bibliography entries ordered according to the Swedish/Finnish alphabet which is like the English one but ends in Å,Ä,Ö. I found the following very short explanation on how to make it work: http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/Archive/Comp/comp.text.tex/2006-06/msg00657.html I know some...

Why can't you have empty lines when editing text in Lyx?

Thanks scottkosty and Stefan Kottwitz it works, I'm wondering is there a special reason to include all that in the local layout, can't I just include the following which also seems to work:

Style Standard

KeepEmpty true
FreeSpacing true

End

Why can't you have empty lines when editing text in Lyx?

It's annoying that you can't enter empty lines when editing text in Lyx. I mean it's a text editor so you should be able to do it because composing a complicated text is a piecemeal process, inability to create empty spaces or lines makes you feel trapped. Why isn't there an option to allow empty li...

Re: Page margins are not printed properly. Topic is solved

I think I found the answer: In document settings "page layout" I changed format to A4 which is the standard printing paper size almost everywhere.

Page margins are not printed properly. Topic is solved

I'm trying to set 2 cm top and bottom margins, but it's not working. When I print the pdf created in lyx the margins are larger, about 3 cm. In fact not even the right/left margins come out exactly as I set them (they are printed smaller). Is there a setting I'm missing? I have tried all the differe...

Re: error "Layout `Theorem*' was not found." Topic is solved

Strangely this problem fixed itself, I really don't know what I did. So I guess there is no problem then.

error "Layout `Theorem*' was not found." Topic is solved

I would like to number the definitions, theorems etc. separately like this for example: DEFINITION 1 THEOREM1 DEFINITION2 COROLLARY 1 ETC. So in Document Settings Modules I selected the "Theorems (Numbered By Type)". But I get the error "Layout `Theorem*' was not found." I put th...
