Thanks to anyone bothering to read this. When generating a pdf, the process aborts with a latex error message:
Missing $ inserted. I've inserted a begin-math/end-math symbol since I think you left one out. Proceed, with fingers crossed. ------------------- This only occurs if there is an underscore in the note field of a reference in the bibtex database. I have looked for hidden special characters in the .bib file using the terminal command cat -TEA and found none. The underscore has to be in the note field of the reference entry. Seems really odd. I posted this to the bug list but was told to post it here. I'm using: Ubuntu 14.4 with the texlive in the Ubuntu ppa Lyx 2.1.4 Natbib, style author-year processor bibtex8 style apalike I need to be able to produce a pdf of my document. Thanks.
