Hi Jurgen,

I tried the code you supplied by putting it in the "latex preamble"
of my lyx document. Lyx complained about not finding the proper sty file,
so I figured I needed to install changebar.sty,
and used the MikTex package manager to do that.

Once that hurdle was taken, I got the next error.
My document has a caption as part of a change,
and there seemed to be some bracket mismatch (extra }).
So this seems to be related to the error reported by Jannick.
The headers seem to be doing OK now, I did not get any error in those.

After I accepted the change in the caption,
Lyx did not complain anymore, and nice changebars appeared in
the right margin.

However, it so happens that I use marginal notes in my document,
and they also use the right-hand margin.
The change bars now go straight through the marginal notes.
Is it possible to use the left-hand margin for the change bars?

Many thanks,

Evert-Jan
