Booktabs with LyX: how to kill the last line?

Hi, I am using the booktabs package to create booktabs with LyX, as described in the Embedded Objects manual and the Booktabs description. However, the \bottomrule command has to be inserted in the last row of a table, and the cells of this last row need to be empty. As a consequence, there

Many thanks! The manuals should be corrected. For LyX 1.4.x (http://wiki.lyx.org/uploads/LyX/LyXDevelDocumentation/EmbeddedObjects.pdf), the manual states on page 25 that the \bottomrule command needs a separate, empty row. The manual for Lyx 1.5.x says nothing on this. I'll add something

If you change the document class to scrbook (book KOMA-script), it stops working. Must be because articles in most cases don't have indices. So it's likely that scrarticle comes without index specifications and you can set it any way you like. -- Christian Jürgen Spitzmüller wrote: Christian
