This is a great tool to write structured documents. Latex is used in the background to render beautiful documents. It certainly helps to have at least some latex background. I used Lyx to write my Master and Ph.D.. Very good for large projects as books or reports.
I use it daily. I have used it for letters of a few pages, and for books of hundreds of pages. Producing a 200 page press-ready PDF with hundreds of figures and tables is extremely simple. Producing a 20 page report takes me about half the time I would take using MS Word because the formating simply takes care of itself.
At first I was like: "meh." But then I read the introduction and tutorial, after I was like: "Holy shit awesome!"
I like it but... it saves documents in ".lyx" format only. Therefore if you want to save a document in ".doc" format it will be impossible unless you know how to change it. But I personally don't want to get into it. I will better use another Word Processor.
Good. I use it to paste data (edit: special paste: plain text) into tables and then copy the code (view: fount code panel) to Texstudio.
No need to compile everytime that you need to see the ouput, this saves time.
LaTeX-quality results in no time! Great for formula heavy documents!
My favorite scientific writing tool.
Using it for my CV (moderncv template in texlive-latex-extra) and the occasional letter. The generated PDFs look far better than anything MS/Libre/OpenOffice could ever hope to create.
Lo uso recientemente y es excelente
just get libre
I specially use lyx for building tables for latex. Easy to use, only import to latex code and paste in your latex document..
This is my favorite way to write/edit large documents. It is the best front end for latex and the most powerful tool out there for the creation of books, thesis, papers etc. You get the best of both worlds in terms of control and usability.
use it for a long time still the best editor
I really like it alot. I just wish there was a better way to check grammar . It won't keep me from using it though.
awesome and simple to use
Superlative, no other accolade is appropriate: stands with the best that the Linux platform has produced, more than a word processor.
