lyx files created in OSX Mac could be edited in Windows?

Good Morning

Please, tell me if is possible to edit in Windows a lyx file/document that has been created in a Mac (OSX). And vice-versa: Is possible to edit in a Mac (OSX) a lyx file that has been created in Windows?

Thank you very much.

I tried to cite a footnote!
I label my footnote and then cited it but I got a wrong reference!
Is there another way to do the job ?

Plos bibliographic style not taken into account

Dear Lyx Users,
I am preparing a manuscript for Plos One using the attached bibliographic style. However, my LyX document does't compile when I set the bibliographic modules to natbib or jurabib. How can I make LyX take into account this bibliographic plos style ? 
Thank you very much in advance, 
Best regards, Harold

kpsewhich is not found on Mac

I've just install TexLive & LyX on a new OS install; when I open any file in 
LyX (the help files) I get errors that class files are not found.  They are 
indeed on my machine.  Looking at the debug messages, I see:
    sh: kpsewhich: command not found
However, the file is on my path:
    [/Applications ] which kpsewhich

So it seems that this is what is causing LyX to not be able to find the files.
Any ideas as to how to correct this?

problem getting non-Latin symbols in PDF

I'm writing an article that will contain IPA and various non-Latin
alphabetic characters in it.  Eveything went well inserting IPA and Greek
letters into the PDF, but when I tried to add Hebrew letters, I get an
error when trying to export to PDF:

  Could not find LaTeX command for character 'א' (code point 0x5d0)

I've tried various possibilities for Language - changing to "Unicode
(utf8)" for example yields:

  Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:א not set up for use with LaTeX.

How do I solve this?

problems after including a pdf figure

LyX 2.0.3 on Debian GNU/Linux stable with pdfTeX, Version
3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012/Debian).

LyX could turn my document into pdf using pdflatex fine.
I inserted a figure, which was a pdf file.  The log now shows the
following 3 errors:
! Package hyperref Error: Wrong DVI mode driver option `dvips',
(hyperref)                because pdfTeX or LuaTeX is running in PDF

! LaTeX Error: Option clash for package graphicx.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.108 \usepackage
The package graphicx has already been loaded with options:
There has now been an attempt to load it with options
Adding the global options:
to your \documentclass declaration may fix this.

! LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in
mpleMatch1.pdf (no BoundingBox).

I tried adding dvips to the document options, but it didn't help.

LyX still produces a pdf output and it looks OK--even including the

What can I do about these errors?

Why is anything trying to use the dvips options when I'm running with

Should I include the figure with Insert | File | External Material
rather than Insert | Graphics?  I want to use it as a graphic, not a
complete page.

Lyx Windows


Ola, espero que se encuentren bien.
Recientemente compre un notebook con Windows 8, hace muchísimo tiempo que no
poseo Windows en el ordenador principal, y por tema de trabajo tengo que
tener trabajar con él. Por lo mismo me entra la duda si Lyx funciona de
buena manera en este ambiente, puesto que según la página solo funciona en
Windows XP/vista/7

Listing font

Hi all,

How do I change the listing font size of the whole document?

I am quite sure that it must be specified in Document->Settings->Listings but I do not know the input parameter for setting the font at “smaller” size.


Thanks for your attention

using a .cls file in the document directory (Windows)

My document use the nih class and layout (the latter from Rob Oakes) and 
is based on the template provided with the nih for LyX zipfile. nih.cls 
and nih.layout are in the same directory as the document. Windows 7.  
LyX Version 2.0.6.  MikTeX 2.9.

Producing pdfs (via pdflatex) works fine on linux and MacOS, but not 
Windows.  The problem is that on Windows c:\MikTeX\tex\latex\nih\nih.cls 
is used instead of the version in the document directory.  That version 
includes a bunch of stuff which is in the document preamble, and so 
"already defined" errors occur.  Some of it really needs to be in the 
preamble since it consists of stuff that vary with each document.  The 
nih.cls in the document directory does not contain the preamble stuff.

Is there a way to use the nih.cls in the document directory?

The LyX customization manual, section 5.1, has instructions for 
installing a local copy.  This seems rather involved and will not 
reflect changes to the nih.cls in my document directory.  I'm probably 
not going to change it, but I'd rather not set things up in such a 
fragile way.

I tried to use a local layout in the Document Settings | Document Class, 
but this didn't change the nih.cls that was used.

Ross Boylan

P.S. I could change the commands in the preamble to \renewcommand, but 
then things would stop working under the other OS's, since the command 
is not previously defined for them.  Also, \newcommands are not the only 
thing in the preamble, and I'm not sure if duplicating the other stuff 
is OK.
