Just noticed this. Immediately after the post to which you were responding, I 
recreated the converter that I had on the old computer. [There was only one, 
from a Scrivener-generated TeX file to LyX.] After reading the above I wonder 
if I should have done that.

Not sure what you mean by the first non-comment line of my preferences. Are 
your referring to preferences generally? Or to /file handling/converters

non-comment line?

closes, but I have no idea why.

 I recommend to
 check out the csquotes LaTeX package. This is not natively supported

I've skimmed the manual. Will take a closer look before I dump my next document

 The problem here is that these are entered into the file as double-quote

 do you get that character, or do you get something else? I get an opening or 
 closing quote, on screen, depending upon the context.


Thanks, Richard. As I indicated, this document was composed in Vim. When I open 
it in a word processor, the beginning and ending quotes are also identical but 
neutral, i.e., straight up and down without any curvature either way. If I 
enter quotes in lyx, there is a correct differentiation of the beginning and 
ending quote. However, the characters look different, i.e., the ending 
character is not the same one that appears elsewhere in the document. 

This is a problem I'd like to solve. I am going to be composing in Vim. Only 
when I'm close to being ready to a final draft will I move to lyx. 

I'll check with the Vim folks to see if I can find out what encoding is being

I am using the memoir article class. Quotes are appearing with closing quotes 
at the beginning and the end of the quote. When try to change that under

I believe with UTF-8 encoding. 

How can I change the quote style?

 I took a look at the project's SF page and it seems to me that they're

 the converter from source (likely a big headache in itself), or use
 Windows or Linux to proceed: On both latex2rtf can be easily
 installed.
 
 If the softpedia binary doesn't cut it, set up Homebrew [1] and
 install the latex2rtf package/formula. You will probably also need to
 download XCode.
 
 Otherwise you can download XCode alone and just build latex2rtf
 manually. The make file should require no changes. Just go into the
 unzipped folder of the unix source archive and type 'make  sudo make
 install' from terminal. Homebrew (and similarly MacPorts and Fink)
 just automates all this stuff for you on a systemwide scale.

Thanks, Ray---and Liviu, too. Sorry, if I was given the link to latex2rtf I 
didn't realize It. Probably because I was assuming it was a script somewhere in 
the lyx package, or maybe in my tex/latex install, and that I just needed 
either to get it recognize by lyx or learn how to run it from the terminal. 

I've downloaded the source, and have located a discussion with pretty clear 
instructions of how to compile it. I'll be giving it a shot, but probably not

 LyX comes with support for a lot of external tools, provided that

 Another way is to check the 'configure.py' script coming with LyX.

Thanks, Liviu. I'm on a Mac. I found 'configure.py' in

references to specific tools in all the code. 

How is this script used? Will it help me find the tools you mentioned, eLyXer

 LyX comes with support for a lot of external tools, provided that

 Another way is to check the 'configure.py' script coming with LyX.

Thanks, Liviu. I'm on a Mac. I found 'configure.py' in 
/applications/lyx.app/resources. It is a very complicated script. I can discern 
references to specific tools in all the code. 

How is this script used? Will it help me find the tools you mentioned, eLyXer 
for HTML export (to be
imported into Word) and the LibO-powered export to ODT. [Is the latter a 
separate tool or a second possibility with eLyXer?]

 If you want to export to RTF, then you need to install latex2rtf or some 
 similar program. But I've had better luck lately exporting to the LyXHTML 
 format, and then loading that in LibreOffice.

I tried opening the XHTML in OpenOffice. It reads it as a raw text document, 
i.e., with the HTML code displayed instead of formatted. Would LibreOffice 
handle it differently?

 I have no experience with either in this context, but OOo is already
 old, and obsoleted by LibO. I guess it is worth giving LibO a shot.

Thanks, Liviu. I'm in scattershot mode right now. Trying things almost 
mindlessly. I guess I don't know how to install converters. I've tried to 
install the LaTeX to RTF converter from /preferences/file handling. I select 
the converter, apply it, reconfigure, restart LyX. When I restart LaTeX to RTF 
doesn't show up in /File/Export, and when I go back to /preferences/file 
handling another converter is selected. 

My document is simple. Headings and footnotes. About ten pages. I'd like to see 
if the LaTeX to RTF convertor will handle it. 

How do I install a converter?
