You probably need to compile lyx though. I assume that Lyx uses the O2 flag for production builds so while error messages and logs are a huge help (minimum working example is the best), unless you can compile with the O0 flag for gcc, gdb will just return a mess. The good news is that you mostly

I use dropbox for something similar. That also means that your .lyx folder should also be on there and any changes you make to the default configuration are synced. ~Ben On Wed, Oct 1, 2014 at 8:12 AM, Helge Hafting helge.haft...@hist.no wrote: Den 25. sep. 2014 12:06, skrev Renato Pontefice:

You should use biblatex. It has the ability to do this. For my example, \usepackage[ uniquename=false, uniquelist=false, maxcitenames=2, mincitenames=1, maxbibnames=200, minbibnames=1, natbib=true, url=false, doi=false, isbn=false, eprint=false, backref=false, backend=biber,

I would say that what could go wrong is your references might need to be cleaned up. I know that was the huge shift for me. The major difference (and in my opinion a terrible decision) is that biblatex assumed that your bib file is valid latex code. That means that all reserved characters are

You might have to get your configuration with ERT. I find a lot of formatting is complicated with koma. You could also play around with your din.lco file. That is where all of the spacing is defined unless overridden. I might suggest an ERT of \raggedright with the includeimage command. It is hard

Wouldn't that change the default for every document using that particular style though? If this is only for one journal, modification of style files would not only be overkill, but would impact future work in unexpected ways. To get the desired results, it would be best to limit it to document

I do not know any Croatian first of all. The issue that you are having is that Lyx uses a 3rd party software (bibtex by default but biblatex is much better particularly for you) to generate references. It is taking whatever you have in your JabRef .bib file, formatting it, and placing it into
