No, I have a really blunt way of responding to those who are condescending or dogmatic rather than at all helpful in response to requests for help. If I'm drowning and you throw a horseshoe, don't expect gratitude.

That is a signally absurd response.

A minimal example would be an empty LyX document. I could show you a
screen-shot of an empty preamble, but you presumably know how that
looks. Likewise for the Bibliography dialog.

I could go a bit further, and post a bibtex file, and a LyX document
with a cite element and bibligraphy element, and ask “What do I do to
get LyX to render that cite element and the bibliogrpahy in Chicago
style?” But, again, you presumably know how bibtex files, cite
elements, and bibliography elements look.

So far, I've seen you post one willfully passive-aggressive response
to one person, and then this foolish response to me. This list begins
to look to be a source of abuse, rather than constructive response.

As a general rule,

provide a Minimal Working Example, ie the shortest LyX file with the
shortest BIB file that demonstrates the issue.

that would be great.)

I'd like to avoid a process of tweaking a .tex file.

When I try to handl things by way of the preamble, LyX yowls about
conflicting specifications. If I have to do everything through the
preamble or by tweaking a .tex file, then I'd like to know how to
disable the build-in Bibliography processing.
