You don't have to be a core member of the LyX development team to participate in
the discussion. In fact, many great ideas come from non-developers. We
absolutely rely on them to improve LyX. To participate, all you have to do is
register at


I'm not saying you should participate in this particular discussion, since your
thoughts seem well-represented by the discussion three years ago, but I did want
to make clear that everyone is encouraged to participate in any discussion.

I added a link on the ticket to your email, and emphasized that this could lead

Thanks for your feedback, please keep it coming!
