4 Win users is not a representative survey. However, it is impossible to 
set a value that suits all different resolutions for different monitor 
sizes.
Still on all PCs I have access to 120 is a sensible value. Note that 
there is also the aspect that different users on the same PC prefer 
different sizes. For example I share one of the PCs at work with a 
colleague. I use Windows' 100% system font zoom while he prefers 125% 
system font zoom. That is much too big in my opinion but well, everybody 
is free to set what he wants. I wrote how easy it is to set the zoom.



Do you have any thoughts on increasing the default?


It seems that this would be sensible as nobody uses 100% but always 
larger values, I think making the current 120% to the new 100% makes sense.

Hello,

This is not a new issue, but every time that I reconfigure lyx,
I cannot guess is a package is installed or not installed, eg.

INFO: +checking for document class revtex4-1 
[revtex4-1,natbib.sty,revsymb4-1.sty,tex
INFO: +checking for document class revtex4 [revtex4,natbib.sty,revsymb.sty]... 
yes

I use Windows 10 (64 bit). I reinstalled the ttf fonts of lyx, which worked for 
me. I did not have this problem in my previous laptop with Windows 7.

What operating system do you use? If it's a version of Linux, do you 
have the fonts-lyx package installed?

Can you please send an example .lyx file to the list with a simple "Pi"
that does not show up for you? What operating system do you use?

Hello,
 Is there a format of LyX document that contains the text as well as the
figures it uses? Something like that can be sent by email and contain all
that is needed to see the document, without the need to send along all the
pictures from separate files.
Thanks in advance for your reply,

When I type in some fonts lyx display screen shows different fonts. For
example, the Greek letter "Pi" shows up as Q. Though, the font shows up
correctly when I compile the file.

I've tried that and can't reproduce. The characters don't often show up
correctly, but I never get a SIGSEGV.

I see. We took a poll of users and got that the average preference is
larger than 120. See:
