### Re: Recursive Representation

Hello Richard, here is a sample attached. The ci(x) and the fj(x) should have the i resp. j as subcsripts, also inside the integral in the table. Neither the menu item nor the math symbols help...

That helps a lot to see what's going on. The problem is that the stuff you want in subscripts is not even in math mode. Please read the Introduction and the Tutorial in the Help menu. To get what you want, select everything in the first cell of your table and do ctrl + M. Then select ci(x) and hit the underscore key. Then select 'i' and hit the underscore key. Then 'j' and underscore key. Note that when you are writing you don't have to write and then select and hit the underscore key. You would just hit the underscore key to start with and you would be in subscript mode. Also note that if you are just trying to align equations, there are better ways to do this. See Help Math for this. Best, Scott

### Re: Recursive Representation

Thanks, Scott, subscripting now works via selecting and hitting Shift+Underscore. The question is, why the menu item under Format is not enabled in that particular situation? That would be the intuitive way ... Another question: is Shift+Underscore a shortcut for the menu item? Greetings, Jens

Another question: is Shift+Underscore a shortcut for the menu item? Only in math. In text, it produces an underscore. Perhaps part of the lesson here is that there is a big math vs text difference in LyX, much as in OpenOffice and the like, which have an equation editor. Richard
