You should set the document language to British. To jump into this thread, unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work. color, analyze and defense all pass as being correctly spelt when the language is set to British Is there something else that needs to be done? Thanks Graham

One possible approach is to write an introduction to Lyx specifically aimed at Word users. This has been done for R at http://chartsgraphs.wordpress.com/learnr-toolkit/ where the tutorials assume familiarity with Excel and demonstrate how things differ (or are the same) in R. There have also been

Rainer, I completely agree and this would be a very usefull document - but the issue is not to provide an easy transition from Word to LyX, but to enable an easy co-operation with Word or OO / LibreOffice users, in the sense that: Ah OK, I obviously misunderstood the basis of the thread, I

R Gaphics for Lyx

Yihui , I think Graham's question has pointed out a very useful direction -- we may consider leaving some sort of API's or hooks in the R script in LyX which is used to process the Rnw document. A few months ago I also recommended the qpdf program to R developers to compress PDF plots and
