I'd try calling lyx with '-dbg mathed' parameter from a console window. Alternatively use View->Messages Pane->Settings Check 'Selected' Double click on 'mathed - Math editor' back to 'Output' ... calling: maxima input: 'simpsum:true;tex(5 + 2);' output: '7' Buffer.cpp (3449): updateMacro of novýsúbor9.lyx 12:31:27.889: Automatický úklad hotový. Here it shows: 12:38:28.705: Alt+M Afinding 'finding 'finding 'use whole cell: checking expr: '5 + 2' calling: maxima input: 'simpsum:true;tex(5 + 2);' output: '7' Kornel
