Float Tables in Lyx 1.6.1 for Mac?

I am trying to use the Float table available in Lyx, but when I insert a table, I do not get a dialog box that allows me to pick no of rows and columns. I plan to use a lot of tables in my dissertation, and although I know how to code them in the Tex language, I was hoping to use the easier to

Numbered equations placement

2009-01-16 Thread Ehud Kaplan
I have a numbered equation that Lyx insists on indenting, and as a result it spills over to the next line. There is PLENTY of white space on the left of the equation to accommodate the full equation. Is there a way to force it to do the right thing and keep the entire equation on one line?

formatting numbered equations

2009-01-16 Thread Ehud Kaplan
/"When all else fails, read the manual"--/ So I did, and found how to prevent Lyx from centering numbered equations: use the fleqn option in the Document Class under Settings. This left-justifies the equations, which is not really what I wanted, but it prevents the breaking up of the equation

Hi, You must be doing something wrong or your lyx went crazy. 1. Just a simple idea, make a small test page on a new blank file. Make sure that your lyx can at least do the right thing. 2. delete the appendix and start over again. erez On Fri, Jan 16, 2009 at 10:23 PM, Ehud Kaplan
