HUGE fomulae

2009-08-24 Thread sammichaelstevens

When I've written a math formula, whether it be inserted into the main text
or as a numbered equation, the text size becomes huge with the formula
usually disappearing off the end of the screen.  If you then reselect the
formula, as if to edit it, it then shrinks back to normal size.  I am doing
something obviously wrong?

Thank you in advance

Sam

Looks like a problem with instant preview - but I don't know how
to fix that. Take a look at Tools-Preferences-Screen Fonts, see if 
there are any strange sizes or zoom factors.


I assume this does not affect output, i.e. your PDFs or printouts are fine?

Or, look at Tools-Preferences-Graphics and set Instant Preview to Off.

Or, have a look at your preferences file in the LyX dir in your user
directory and look for some magic entry saying something about the size
of previews: '\\preview_scale_factor'. If it's there and it's not 0.9,
start wondering how it got there.

Dear Helge  Vincent

Thankyou for your speedy responses.  Turning off instant preview worked.  

You've made a PhD thesis writing student alot less stressed!

Thanks again
