LyX v2.3.7

A document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).

LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. A broad array of ready, well-designed document layouts are built in.

LyX is for people who want their writing to look great, right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting details, “finger painting” font attributes or futzing around with page boundaries. You just write. On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output — or richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced — looks like nothing else.

LyX is released under a Free Software/Open Source license, runs on Linux/Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X, and is available in nearly 30 languages.


Here you see the main window of LyX. It looks like any other modern
application with menus, toolbars, work area and status line. In this
work area, you can see how basic mathematical formulas appear
when you work on your document.

It does look a bit rough, but don't worry, because the output will be fine:

That picture is taken from a PDF reader which is used to preview
your documents. With this program, you can get a pixel-exact image
of the final print. As you can see on the first picture, LyX is not
completely WYSIWYG, but rather WYSIWYM: What
you see is what you mean.

The math toolbars below can be used to make the complicated
mathematical formulas. You can also enter LaTeX commands directly
from the keyboard, which is faster when you've learned the codes.
LyX automagically translates the codes to graphical display,
providing visual feedback on-the-fly!

Next is a view of Special Character submenu in the Insert menu. In
the background, you can see a table. LyX has advanced support for
tables, which should satisfy all needs for normal usage. Even if LyX
does not natively support some arcane feature you've found in the
depth of your LaTeX bible, LyX can handle it, since you can insert
arbitrary raw LaTeX commands almost anywhere in your text.

In this picture, we see the Edit menu open. In the background, we
see a picture. You can include graphics (several file formats are
supported) anywhere in your text, rotate and scale them as you
wish, with on screen WYSIWYG display.

Many things can be seen in the following picture, where fullscreen
mode is in action:

You see the math toolbars, which pop-up whenever you enter math
mode. Once you turn on Instant preview feature, immediately
the cursor leaves math mode, math equations get rendered via
LaTeX. An example of such a rendered result can be seen on left

On the right side you can see the LaTeX output, which will be
exported from the current document. On the right side is the
pop-up. This is automatically created from the headings in your
document. It is also hyperlinked to the document, so you can quickly
navigate through even large documents. By the way, did you know
that LyX handles large documents without any fuss?

Below is the spellchecker window. LyX uses hunspell or enchant as
the spellchecker.

And here is the citation dialog. LyX supports BibTeX, LaTeX's very
powerful literature system. Lyx also supports the more recent
biblatex processor.

LyX can be configured comfortably via the preferences dialog.

Last but not least, LyX supports Windows, Mac OS X and Linux/Unix.
A Mac OS X screenshot is shown below.
