Koma and setbibpreamble


I'm trying to include a long preamble to a bibliography using 
\setbibpreamble and Koma document class. Attached is a MWE.

If the preamble is long and causes a page break then page formatting is 
corrupt and the first bib entry is lost see attached pdf. Is there a way 
round this?

Many thanks

chemmacros in lyx

Has anybody used chemmacros in lyx and could provide a minimal example, e.g. for D_2O and the necessary usepackage entrances in the preamble?

\usepackage{chemmacros} there and \chD2O in the text gives this error message:
! Undefined control sequence.

l.1408 ... lithium ions \citep{Engelmann1976}.



The control sequence at the end of the top line

of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have

misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct

spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,

and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

p.s. would it be difficult to include chemmacros in lyx without using ERT?
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }

HELP: PDF View not working correctly.

I've found what was causing the issue. I set the paragraph settings to 1.5 line spacing manually by selecting all the text, right clicking and choosing "Paragraph Settings...". This caused the text to disappear. How may I change the line spacing to 1.5 without losing any of my text?

HELP: PDF View not working correctly.

Hi Jürgen;

See the attached file, as requested. I looked at the code using the Source Pane, and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. When I try to compile and view the PDF, the paragraph before equation 1 doesn't show up. Paragraph after equation 1 gets copied in place of paragraph 18. Also pretty much none of the paragraphs after and including section 3.1 don't display, while the equations appear. 

Thank you,

indicating keyboard keys

I'm writing a user manual for a program that I've written in which I
want to describe keyboard key usage.  What I've been doing is using
square brackets, e.g. "[Enter]" to designate the keys, but would
ideally like to use something like having the word "Enter" in a box
(or something similar).  I realize that this is something that is
probably not directly supported by LyX itself, but maybe some ERT
magic can make happen?

HELP: PDF View not working correctly.

I'm new at LyX, and not familiar with LaTeX.

My problem is: when I try to view my work in PDF, the resulting PDF is missing text. It simply ignores a number of typed paragraphs. No idea why this is occurring.​

I this possible ?How does this work?

Second question. Is it possible to shrink the distance between the items in the table of content.

I would like to make a simple table---two columns, the first 2 cm wide and the second 13 cm wide. I seem to be
able to do this, and it looks correct in LyX, but when I preview it the short column takes up most of the page. 
Am I doing something wrong?  I am running Yosemite.

In mein Text there are a lot of counted lines. Than theres text and other counted lines, that schould follow
up the first one. With automatic numberbullets this will not work. Is it possible to set the start-point
bei the later number lines?
