This program is nice, but doesn't allow editing of the TeX source code. This gets frustrating when I know how to do something in LaTeX but can't find it in the program.


It's possible to insert TeX code going to Insert\TeX Code or Ctrl+L and then writing in the box the code or you can edit your preamble using LaTeX/TeX code going to Document\Configuration\LaTeX preamble.

Our office uses LyX and even the elders could change their habits to master it and we are very satisfied. If you are tired of word and its friends, change your office work with Lyx. You won't regret.
