I have several other Options to set and i have tried them as follows:

       Other "ePress","itn","[english|swedish]"

then i checked the LyX in the Documents->Settings and only "ePress" shows
up. The rest of the other options did not show up anywhere. Did they get
effected or ignored. I check the manual and it says that several Other
options can be specified with comma separation.

Anything else that  missed in the process?
