that, to be truly compatible, I had to not only use the same program as
my colleague, but also the same version. This is even true with
different versions of LyX. Every new release seems to change the source
file format just enough that earlier versions of LyX have trouble
reading documents created with later versions.
The rules with LyX versions are clear:
* all stable versions 2.x.y with same x are able to read/write files in
the exact same 2.x format.
* all stable versions 2.x.y are able to read files of version 2.x' with
x'<x. They will later save as their own 2.x format, but they are able to
export to format 2.x'.
* the last stable release of the 2.x series is able to read files from
2.(x+1) series and to export to this version, although it can be
expected that some features are turned to ERT. This last stable release
is usually released at the same time as 2.(x+1).0.
If any of these descriptions is incorrect, please file a bug or complain
PS: you can replace the 2. with 1., in case you have old files lying
