1. The title page has the title, a picture in a float and the author name. These should all fit on one A4 page (easily). However Lyx's insists on putting a page break after the title. How can I get all these elements on one page.
I recommend to use a KOMA-script document class. Then use the option "titlepage". Attached is an example.
Note that the title image must not be a float but just the figure. Otherwise you image might float to another page than the title page.
2. In putting the image in a float I call up a caption for the image. How do I not have a caption for the image?
You have 2 choices: - don't use a float - use a float but delete the caption
Later I will want to have captions that are simply descriptive and don't have "Figure X" in the front of them. How do I turn off the automatic numbering?
This is tricky because this is quite unusual when tpesetting. Have a look in the documentation of the LaTeX-package "caption" for a description how the numbering and label "Figure" can be suppressed.
