Could somebody kindly point me to an understandable explanation of how to use
xfig produced figures in LyX?
Use the external inset ("Inset->File->External Material") and choose the
XFig template. You should also select "preview" in the display combo AFAIR.
I am using version 1.5.4 of LyX
Has 1.5.5 or 1.6 a feature to insert fig files directly and the rest is done
by the program?
1.5.5 is the same as 1.5.4 in this regard. 1.6 will save you on choosing
"preview" on the display combo, that's all.
