<< Introduction | LyX Graphical Tour | Inserting figures and tables >>

Let's change a few paper defaults before we go any further. Use the menu Document→Settings. This pops up the document settings dialog.
Choose Page Layout from the navigation panel. Change the paper format to US letter.
Set the margins to something reasonable. The title has moved up in the output since the margins are now smaller than the default. You will see this change only in the output; the LyX screen will be unchanged.
Now, let's add an abstract. Type in the words, then, you guessed it, click on the environment list and select Abstract.
Hmm, that looks a bit too small. Let's change the document base font size from the default 10 pt to 12 pt. Use the menu Document→Settings, go there to the section Fonts and change the base size.
This will make things a bit more readable.
Now add a section header. You know the mantra by now: type in the words click on the environment list and select Section.
Let's add a subsection (your turn to guess), and finally a bit of text and see how we are doing.
Not bad. Now we can add a few more subsections, more text and an itemized (bulleted) list, also using the environment list. Oops, we started a second page. LyX correctly splits the text over the pages.
