Lyx preview: image inside TikZ picture

Well, I don't even know what a preview is... it is LyX's instant preview. It is explained here for equations: https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/InstantPreview , but it works for many of the TeX code snippets that one inserts in LyX (the so called "Evil Red Text"). It works nicely for example for t...

Lyx preview: image inside TikZ picture

Hi, thanks a lot for the answer. I think I did not explain myself well. I am able to insert the image inside a TikZ picture (in the way that you said: I took the code from another StackExchange answer, this one: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/186389/how-can-i-annotate-an-image-with-arrow-an...

Lyx preview: image inside TikZ picture

Dear forum users, the LyX preview does not work if I include a picture using \includegraphics inside a tikzpicture environment. It works if I include the same picture on its own. Here are two code snippets to insert inside a TeX code box in LyX \begin{tikzpicture} \node[anchor=south west,inner sep=0...

MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

The following worked (hopefully I kept track correctly of what I did) 1) Install MikTeX for me only (not for all users) 2) Choose as installation directory C:\Users\%myself\AppData\Local\Programs\MiKTeX 2.9 C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9 did not work and also installation for all users did not work. If...

MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

Thanks for the answer. As far as I see, to post there I need to determine that the crash I see is a bug of MikTeX, and I am not sure that it is; it might be caused by the configuration of the office computer, with network drives. If I were able to get some information on the crash, it would help: ma...

MikTeX does not start in administrator mode

Dear all,
MikTeX does not start in administrator mode. I get an error message (attached), which is not informative. How can I debug this problem? What should I check?

Thanks in advance!

The different things to press when an error happens, h or q , or s , or x are all documented. In the TeXbook. When you are interacting, you are interacting with TeX. I looked at an electronic copy which I found on ctex (I do not have a printed copy), and the reference I found is in chapter 6, pages...
