Lyx compiling only when I open the program

Postby carluri » Sat Sep 12, 2015 9:51 pm


I've been having a problem with Lyx and I was wondering if anyone knows a solution for it. I'm compiling a document composed of several different files added using "Include". Everything compiles fine when I launch the program. However, if I edit a document and try updating the pdf nothing happens. I have to close Lyx and launch it again for everything to work.

Anyone has any ideas on what can be going on? I didn't seem to find anything useful searching on google.

Thank you

Hi carluri, for posts like this it's always useful to give the version of LyX you are using and the operating system that you use.

Also, please post a minimal LyX example. This takes time but will once you do it it should be easy to see if we can reproduce and fix the problem. Please read
