I tried exporting three files and see three different behaviours. Looks like my whole installation is even more broken than I thought. I think I will wipe all LyX and MikTeX from disk and try re-installing afterwards. If there anything I should delete after uninstalling the software from the Windows XP Control Panel to end up with a "clean" system? Matthias
