Hi Kartheek, welcome!

You can see our list of bugs and features here:

Please let us know if you have any specific questions (try to be as
specific as possible).

Also, in general please respond to the list unless there's a reason

Is highlight inside insets working on master?

On newest master, if I start an ERT, type inside of it, and then
select with Shift + arrow inside it, the highlight is not drawn.
Moving the mouse inside it triggers the redraw.

I'm using Qt 5 so I'm curious if other can reproduce.

fix bug 9302 - pasting some insets into math crashes


The problem of bug 9302 is that the buffer pointer of insets in the internal 
clipboard is not set, but it is used for conversion to plain text (which is 
an intermediate step for pasting into math).

I have a fix which simply re-uses the mechanism for copying to the external 
clipboard also for pasting text into math (see Channel 
everything through a temporary buffer.

This fix works fine, but it might be considered overkill. Does anybody have 
a better idea? If not, I'll put it in. The bug 9302 has a milestone 2.1.3. 
Is this to be taken seriously, i.e. should the fix also go to the stable

Fwd: devel bot

Could someone check on the list bot? I'm not getting responses to subscribe/unsubscribe/owner.

Is there something wrong with the lyx-devel list bot? I've sent four unsubscribe requests to <lyx-devel-unsubscribe <at>> without receiving a confirmation response or being unsubscribed. There was no response from <lyx-devel-subscribe <at>> either.

I was able to successfully subscribe to lyx-announce via <lyx-announce-subscribe <at>>.

I don't know much about this code, but if you don't see the change in
git diff, that is a sign that you changed an intermediate file. There
is no file Prefedit.ui in the git repository. There is however
PrefEditUi.ui. If you change that file, you will see your change in
git diff.

New To Lyx: Compiling Problem


I have successfully compiled Lyx. 

When I change the files, What should I do to reflect those change to Lyx. 

When I run Lyx it does not reflect changed files.

Possible Beamer bug when switching from Subsection to Section

Hi Juergen,
Can this be considered as a bug in LyX support for Beamer?

Try this:
- Open template beamer-conference-ornate-20min.lyx
- Put cursor on Subsection 1.1
- Hit <shifit+tab>, then <tab>

This apparently innocuous manipulation completely screws the structure
of teh document by un-nesting the first element of each Frame. If user
doesn't notice it in time and saves, it may take them a lot of manual
fixing to restore the structure of teh document (or even simply make
it compilable).

Should I file a ticket for this? Thanks,


Do you think you know what math is?
Or what it means to be intelligent?
Think again:

New To Lyx

Hi, I am Keyur. I have compiled lyx on Ubuntu 14.04. 

Now, I wanted to get started with lyx development. 

Is there any article on wiki about lyx internals. Or I should get started with easy fixes.
