I have asked this question on tex.stackexchange but got no answer so far. I am 
new to LaTeX and LyX. For writing my thesis I got 2 files from university: 
uw_masters_thesis.sty and sample_thesis.tex. The sample file contains 
\usepackage{uw_masters_thesis} in preamble. If I use LaTex I simply put both 
files in same directory and include child documents by using \include or \input 
in the sample_thesis.tex document.The embedded objects manual in LyX suggests 
to specify the Document Class of master document in child document. But in my 
case the document class is Report (Standard Class). In my understanding, what 
uses the style file is the \usepackage{uw_masters_thesis} in preamble.I am 
creating thesis chapters (child documents) in lyx without specifying any thing 
in Document Stettings. I want them to use the style provided by .sty file and 
finally include all of them in master document. How can I achieve this in Lyx. 
Please suggest a step by step solution.
