Hello Forum, I have made similar post couple of months ago. The new class that i am trying to incorporate into LyX layout is accompanied by a description of the class file.
I did some configuration so that get the liuthesis.layout in Document->settings->Document class option combox box. I believe that it is not enough to get started with the writing yet. And i am kind of confused how to make the related configuration in the layout file. Lets take an example: 1. In the accompanied manual, it specifies number of options that i can set. One of the options is "Output format". The possible values for this option are: - print. - ePress. - pdfRelease. - draft. How to specifiy this option in the layout file. I have checked the customization chapter for LyX. Should it go under the section "ClassOptions" section or "AddToPreamble" ? There are several other Macros in the accompanied pdf file that must be configured in the layout file. During the previous post, one Julien showed me some hint ; like inputting the department name of the thesis that i am writing for and it was specified in the class options from LyX Documents Settings menu. He suggested this based on his extensive experience with LyX. Now if i have to specify the department name in the liuthesis.layout file it should have went into "ClassOptions" section and inside "Other" subsection. Shouldn't it? I need some suggestion make this mapping between the manual that i have now and .layout file that i have to edit. Some of the macros defined in the manual has no corresponding options defined in the LyX manual. What to do then? Regards Sajjad
