Dear Richard and other LyX Users,

I managed to solve a few of the formatting problems.  To change the
section labels from numbers to letters, I added the following to the
nih.cls file:

\def\thesection{\Alph{section}}

That solved the output problem.  Now I am trying to get the labels for
section, subsection, and subsubsection to match the LaTeX output.  I've
been able to figure it out for section:

Style Section
LabelType Counter
LabelCounter  section
LabelString   \Alph{section}
End

But I've been stumped on how to do the same thing for subsection and
subsubsection.  This still show 1.1 and 1.1.1 respectively, but only in
LyX.  The LaTeX output is correct.

   
Did you try just doing the same thing, more or less, in the Subsection 
and Subsubsection styles?


You can also do this in the counter block, e.g.:

Counter subsection
LabelString \Alph{section}.\alph{subsection}
End

I think this may also work:

Counter subsection
LabelString \thesection.\alph{subsection}
End

Like LaTeX.

Dear Richard and other LyX Users,

Thank you very much for the recommendation, it worked perfectly.  The
final formatting worked out to be:

Counter subsection
  LabelString \Alph{section}.\{subsection}
End

Since this is one of those Write it down or forget it type of things,
I also put together a blog post that describes the whole process.
Granted, most of it is just stolen out of the LyX documentation, but I
find it handy to put together these types of cheat sheets for myself.

The article is really interesting and useful.
I am at the moment preparing a guideline for my colleagues how to use
LyX for writing scientific books and reports.
I would like to refer your link as one of the references.

Dear LyX Users,

I have a quick question about custom layouts.  I've been in the process
of creating a custom layout file for the NIH grant LaTeX class
(http://www.cs.duke.edu/brd/NIH/tips/). By following the instructions in
the LyX documentation and modifying the existing article.layout, I've
been able to get most everything to work.  With one exception.

To be compliant with the NIH style guide (if it can be called that), I
need for sections to be labeled with letters rather than numbers.  For
example, it should be:

A Overview
B Background
C Methods
D Specific Methods
etc.

Right now it's labeled with numbers:

1 Overview
2 Background
3 Methods
4 Specific Methods
etc.

This problem doesn't appear when generating a document from stock LaTeX
or from Kile (which I suppose is stock LaTeX); only from LyX.  I'm not
sure what is causing it or how to fix it.  In order to make it easier to
edit certain properties, I've moved a few things around.  The
original .cls file included information about custom headers and
footers, which I've removed and placed in a .lyx document I intend to
use as a template.  But there was no code specific to section numbering.
All files are being generated off of the modified LaTeX cls file, so I
don't think that is where the problem is.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can tell LyX/LaTeX to use letters
rather than numbers for section numbering?

   
I'd need to see the layout file and a simple document that illustrated 
the problem. There are too many things that could have gone wrong.
