### Re: char-right via LyX server and math insets

Using the right-arrow key the cursor can be moved into and then past the math inset. Using char-right repeatedly from the command minibuffer the cursor can similarly be moved into and past the math inset. Using the char-right command via the LyX server with echo 'LYXCMD:clientname:char-right:' ~/.lyx/lyxpipe.in however, the cursor always stops at the left side of the math inset. It works fine on ordinary text, but it cannot enter the math inset. When the command is run with the cursor already inside the math inset the cursor-point just pops out to the left of the math inset. The char-forward LFUN has the same behavior. It makes no difference if display mode for math is on or off. I have an application where I'd like to be able to use the LyX server to move the cursor inside a math inset if one is there. Any ideas what is happening and how to work around it? It seems to be LyX bug, feel free to add bug into Trac. Pavel
