Hi Lyx experts, I have been using LYX for over decade now. It has always been a fantastic tool, especially for my PhD thesis.
Unfortunately I have arrived at a dead end just before publication. My publisher (Franz Steiner Verlag, Stuttgart, Germany) has very percise ideas about the layout of the text and I am unable to adjust to his wishes with LYX. I could not find a suitable template on the Internet. I don't know how to change parts of the layout beyond the text options. That is why I need help in changing the page layout. I use the template "book (more font sizes)". Things which need to be adapted are: * font in the header, which has to be small capitals instead of capitals and a different font size * header (left pages): the word chapter is printed in all chapters in German ("Kapitel" which is correct), but in chapter 9 there is "chapter" in the header (a bug?) * space of indentation at the beginning of paragraphs * headlines of chapters without the word "chapter" in the headline and different font size If anybody feels able to help, please contact me and I will send you parts of my text and the exact figures so that the changes can be applied to it. If it does not work out well this way, I will have no other choice than to transfer the whole text to M$-word and reformat it there. I'm not an IT specialist, just a poor historian using LYX on Linux. Please help me to prevent that nightmare! Yours, Markus
