I have been using LyX as my LaTeX editor of choice for quite some time
now, and I have found it to be quite helpful. I have also managed to set
up spell checking for both the languages that I am interested in,
English and Greek. However, the way that I currently toggle between
those languages is quite inconvenient. That is, I use Alt + Shift to
toggle between languages (as I usually do), which achieves the
transition from one language to another. However, that's not enough to
get LyX to toggle to the latter language. LyX keeps spell-checking using
the former language. I have to use a second keyboard shortcut to get LyX
to switch languages, as far as spell-checking goes. For example, I have
to use 2 keyboard shortcuts in order to go from writing English
characters with English spell-checking to writing Greek characters with
Greek spell-checking, and vice versa. Obviously, those are one too many
So, my question is: can LyX be configured so that toggling between
languages is made by one keyboard shortcut, or maybe so that LyX senses
the keyboard layout (GR or US) in use and spell-checks appropriately?
This is an issue that has been bothering me for quite some time, and any
help would be very much appreciated.
I believe it's irrelevant, but right now I am working on a Linux Mint
system. However, I have faced the same issue in windows.
I have already posted the same question on the latex forums, on the LyX
section, but after that realized that LyX has a mailing list, so I
figured I would try my luck here as well.
