So far I'm pleased with how lyx shortens the learning curve for using latex. However, I have several problems converting the document into either rtf or an openoffice document ( publisher's demanding .doc instead of latex or pdf).
1. Converting to .rtf : When I use natbib , numerical option, with sort&compress option, citation format [#ID}, I get an rtf file which does not have any citations in the file. 2. When using the converter to an opendocument: Everything converts including the bibliography, however, the references are all running together instead of each reference starting a separate line ( e,g: 1. Vellios F, Bacz JM, Shumacker HB. Lipoblastomatosis: A tumor of fetal fat different from hibernoma. Report of a case, with observations of embryogenesis of human adipose tissue. Am J Pathol. 1958;34:1149–1159. 2. Chung EB, Enzinger FM. Benign lipoblastomatosis. An analysis of 35 cases. Cancer. 1973 Aug;32(2):482–492. 3. Chen Z, Coffin CM, Scott S, Meloni-Ehrig A, Shepard R, Issa B, et al. Evidence by spectral karyotyping that 8q11.2 is nonrandomly involved in lipoblastoma. J Mol Diagn. 2000 May;2(2):73–77. Are there any workarounds to these problems? Lyx : 126.96.36.199 and Ubuntu linux 8.04
