I see. I'm not sure how that page works (you did not specify which page you are using). This is a mailing list, which means you can send email to it. You seem to be using a web-page that acts as a proxy. In any case you should be able to reply to the mailing list. That means that instead of sending email to my personal email address you send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. > It's rather obvious that I am new to this list > (and LyX) and don't understand the etiquette. Welcome!

I don't understand. Of course you can reply. As long as there is something to reply about you don't have to worry about creating a long thread. > If you care to reply to two questions, I would be grateful, but as to my > original problem I will probably have to make do with a less convenient way > of bringing the original version of the document I want to edit into LyX: > > Can inserted external material be edited in LyX? LyX cannot edit it directly, but it can call a program to edit it (just as a convenience feature). What is your end goal? You want to edit a PDF file? > Can I send screen shots in emails to the mailing lists? Yes I believe so. Best, Scott
