Wow, what a compliment for the docs! I also don't know what to describe as addition to the docs. Otherwise I would have added it to the docs ;-). But have a look at wiki.lyx.org, you find there many useful information around LyX and also some HowTo. regards Uwe The LyX documentation is indeed excellent. What I feel is still missing---and I have been planning to write, in fact, once I learn the basics---is a task- oriented more or less step-by-step guide on how to write layouts file for (previously created) latex classes and how to extend existing classes purely with layouts (a topic Steve Litt has approached, but I think it could be extended). The "Customizing LyX" manual is great and contains lots of details on the various commands to be used in layouts (thanks Uwe!), but it could be supplemented by a chapter on "How to extend the article class [or koma- article, etc.]." The chapter could show how to add new features to class in lyx only, or how to extend the latex class with new features and then create a layout to render those in Lyx.
