Hello Justin, 

I'm trying to use your preamble script to have similar caption to the one in the
example but I get errors, I copied the script as is.

I get these errors:

LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document)

You're in trouble here.  Try typing  return  to proceed.
If that doesn't work, type  X return  to quit.

Sorry, but I'm not programmed to handle this case;
I'll just pretend that you didn't ask for it.
If you're in the wrong mode, you might be able to
return to the right one by typing `I}' or `I$' or `I\par'.

rookie mistake of trying to specify my preamble inside of the Float

I offer up my chimera for anyone who might be interested. It does work
quite well, BUT! be warned that as best I can tell this is effectively
overriding float with floatrow in all instances, so some behaviour is going
to be modified.

* It took me a while to find that I needed to specify the \floatsetup
command (in floatrow form) to get table float captions back on top where
they belong.
(I've gone with \floatsetup[table]{style=plain,capposition=TOP})

* Use of [H] for floats (place here definitely) appears to trigger a
package clash with float/floatrow because, at a guess, [H] expects float to
be loaded. There is discussion of [H] in the floatrow manual but it's a
little beyond me so I've ignored that for now.

Please be gentle... :)

To that end, do you know how the module parameter UsesFloatPkg = false should

function in Preamble, etc. However LyX continues to try and build the new float
type using \newfloat etc as before. I suppose I could try to redefine those
commands...

Hi all. Bit of a tortured question, but hoping someone can help me sort this 
out.The goal: I#39;m trying to add the ability to create box floats in my 
doctoral thesis, which are used to contain regular text displayed as an 
important aside. Attached is an example of what I#39;m after (box.pdf), based 
on what I have so far.


Functionality requirements:* a float, framed* numbered caption, derived from 
containing chapter (Box 2.1, 2.2, etc) which is included in the List of X in 
TOC* that caption should be at the top and inside the box itself

* text should be smaller font size
The setup:* LyX 2.0.2 on OS X 10.7.3 with TeXLive 2011.* documents use the 
bundled thesis template (KOMA-script), set with XeTeX for additional fonts 
(though the same function was provided by this mechanism when it was 
#39;just#39; LaTeX).

To date (~18 months) I#39;ve been using a custom boxedfloat.module that Jürgen 
Spitzmüller provided me with (attached), with the following LaTeX preamble to 
control the caption format:\@ifundefined{fs@boxed}{}% do nothing if not in use

{%  \usepackage{framed}

   \newcommand\floatc@simplerule[2]{\flushleft{\@fs@cfont #1 #2}}  
\renewcommand\fs@boxed{%

   \def\@fs@cfont{\bfseries}\let\@fs@capt\floatc@simplerule    
\def\@fs@pre{\begin{framed}}%

    \def\@fs@post{\end{framed}}%    \def\@fs@mid{\kern8pt}%

    \let\@fs@iftopcapt\iftrue}}%This works very well — again, producing the 
example — however I have a couple of limitations that the floatrow package 
seems to be able to address:

* specifying the font size once in preamble, whereas at the moment I#39;ve not 
been able to find any other way than ERT at the beginning and end of the float 
to add {\small ... }

* the ability to use normal paragraph breaks rather than manually entering 
\medskip* the ability to include footnotes within the Box, which to date has 
proved impossible but floatrow states that it can do soThe problem...:

I cannot get floatrow to work. I found this previous list trail from 2011, and 
followed the suggestion to implement floatrow.module (aside: looking at 
exported LaTeX, \usepackage{floatrow} is still inserted twice). Unfortunately 
nothing I#39;ve tried has succeeded, and my knowledge of LaTeX and/or LyX 
modules doesn#39;t appear up to the task... It seems that the module 
overriding of the auto-included float package does not occur before LyX 
automatically adds the configuration commands pertaining to the original float 
package; namely:

\floatstyle{boxed}\newfloat{boxfloat}{tbh}{lob}[chapter]

\providecommand{\boxfloatname}{Box}\floatname{boxfloat}{\protect\boxfloatname}

floatrow documentation sort of says this should work anyway, but it 
doesn#39;t. Any time I try to replace or override this in the floatrow.module 
or LaTeX preamble, compilation (XeTeX) throws an Undefined control sequence 
error, protesting that \floatstyle{boxed} was not \def#39;d, followed by a 
missing \begin{document}. My tentative guess is that the float style commands 
are effectively being given twice?

The request:I#39;ll be eternally grateful if someone can help me solve this! I 
don#39;t much care how it#39;s done, whether by resolving this particular 
issue with using floatrow over the default float or by some other package or 
LaTeX wizardry. Perhaps it could even be added to LyX proper; surely I#39;m 
not that unusual in seeking this format type?

Thanks as always!PS - slightly less than 6 months till immutable submission 
deadline...
