More specifically (on Mac), open Terminal.app (in
/Applications/Utilities/), and type:

/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/MacOS/lyx -dbg action

(assuming you have LyX.app in your /Applications directory, which it
should be for Skim to work). A new instance of LyX will open, so make
sure you've quit LyX before doing this.

Thanks, now I understand what you meant.

Such a feature is indeed very useful when collaborating with plain TeX users. I propose to create a
new Wiki page describing your method and attaching there your python script.
Create a new Wiki page in this Wiki space:
http://wiki.lyx.org/LaTeX/LaTeX
(To upload files, like your script you need a password. if you need this, mail me and I'll send it
to you privately.)

thanks in advance and best regards

I wrote a layout file for agutex. It requires that you have the AguTeX files:
ftp://ftp.agu.org/journals/latex/journals/Manuscript-Preparation/

The layout file is attached together with a LyX example file. Please test it our and report back. If
it works for you, we can provide it together with the next LyX version.

This is a LaTeX limitation. The maximal nesting level is limited to 6

### Figure x: defaults set up

This has got to be simple, but how do I change the figure/table
defaults, so I get "Figure x." rather than "Figure x:"  i.e. a full stop
rather than a colon.

This is with article class if that makes a difference.

Thanks,

Thanks, Julien! You seem to be the general LyX expert for me! That
worked perfectly, although the output is less than desired. At the
moment, it inserts another page with only the single bar of Lilypond
notation on it. Perhaps it would be better if a .png would be inserted,
rather like the OpenOffice.org Lilypond plugin, which compiles the
Lilypond code into a small image which is inserted into the document, or
at least it did last time I used it about a year ago.

Perhaps something like this is possible, but I don't know about it?

### Re: Can't sync LyX with Skim

Thanks for the great instructions.
I put LyX in my TeX folder, but I customized the path in Skim
preferences, so that's probably not the problem. (Just in case, I tried
putting LyX back into /Applications, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Okay, I ran the debugging program, and when I hit the key combo in Skim,
nothing registers. There's no message at all.

(I'm not using xdvi. It's not available for Mac. There's a Mac version,
but it costs money to register it, and I've already got Skim, and blah
blah blah.
I have looked at the manuals, but to no avail.)
