Finding cross-references

Is there a way in LyX to find all the cross-references to a particular label? I use child documents. I have to restructure my thesis, and two chapters are being merged into one. That means the chapters will become sections, and the sections sub-sections, and so on. ⋅ Therefore, references ...

Front Matter Design

Hi, I am doing a thesis and I am struggling to get the front matter right. The title page has to be very specific according to the regulations of my university. I've just done the whole page in the standard layout, and centred everything, making the fonts larger - I've used 'huge' for the title! And...

Re: Appendix numbering not working in TOC with child documen

I tried putting the heading (at chapter level) outside of the appendix box, but it caused problems.

I have solved the problem by inserting some TeX code at the start, e.g:

  1. \setcounter{chapter}{0}
becomes Appendix A

It will work OK but its not a neat solution!

Appendix numbering not working in TOC with child documents

I am using LyX version 2.0.3. I have a main document with several child documents, the earlier ones chapters and the latter two appendices - all of them are of the 'Book' style. The appendices have a box around the whole document; this box is labelled 'Appendix'. At the start of the appendices is th...

Re: subscript | PDF Output using Child Document not possible

Thanks Stefan, putting the .sty file in the same location as the document was an effective (albeit ugly) fix. I had a look at the raw LaTeX that LyX produces and it is adding subscript.sty at the top. The thing is, I don't think this gets me any further forward at all. I don't use any native/raw LaT...

I am no expert in LyX, but..

Have you tried exporting it to PDF, then copying from the PDF file?

Re: Referencing and citation Topic is solved

I use an external (BibTeX) bibliography also. If I right-click on the 'BibTeX generated bibliography' in LyX, and pick the Settings option, then a dialog box appears. Towards the bottom there is a drop-down box labelled 'Style'. I believe (but am not certain) that this is how you control the order o...

Re: multirow | Missing Border in Table

Has nobody got any ideas on this?

I am really surprised as I'd have thought it would be a common problem. I'm creating more tables with multirow and the problem keeps cropping up. If I don't get a reply I'm going to have to use LaTeX code to create my tables, which is a complete pain!

multirow | Missing Border in Table

I have a LyX document with a table in it and some of the cells are combined using multirow. It looks OK in LyX but doesn't render properly in the PDF. Some of the borders are missing. There is a horizontal border missing in each of columns 2, 3 and 5. Can anyone advise how to show these missing bord...
