Introduction to LyX
LyX, a WYSIWYG editor for LaTeX, is by no means a standard word processor. It heavily depends on LaTeX, i.e., you need to have LaTeX installed properly, and you can only do formatting that is also possible with LaTeX. It has the distinct advantage of directly displaying all the different style elements on the screen without fiddling around with “strange” formatting commands. Those who are not familiar with LaTeX will find it much easier to take the first step toward using this powerful package. Those who already know LaTeX will still find LyX useful for writing shorter pieces of text such as letters. And, after all, as the LaTeX file format is supported in output, you even have the freedom to hack the most complex LaTeX commands by hand if necessary.
