Hi there.

I have a problem with LyX and subdocuments. I have my main document set to report(KOMA) and these Classoptions:

fontsize=10, round, toc=flat, parskip=full, headsepline=true, footsepline=true

all Settings in the main document and the subdocuments are the same. including the LaTeX-Preamble:

\lfoot{name}
\cfoot{}
\rfoot{\today}

Now, when I include the subdocument, it always messes up my font when I compile and print the maindoc to PDF. the font which belongs to the subdocument is different as in the maindoc and also the fontsize is around 15 or so, as oppose to the set 10pt.

I don't know why the hell this is happening. I've tried everything from erasing the latex-preamble in both documents, in the subdocument only, and so on and so forth.

The manual for LyX tells me that in order to include a subdocument I have to get rid of all the preable stuff including the \begin{document}... I know this from working with TeXShop and it makes sense, but why doesn't LyX allow me to actually erase all of the preamble in my subdocument?!?
In other words, how can I create a subdocument in LyX?

Please, post an example that shows the problem: create a master and a child .lyx documents (or post those problematic documents, just replace the actual text with some dummy one if you like), put them into a ZIP archive and attach them to your next post.

The reason is simple: the line (or the paragraph) on which you put included document is of type "Section*" instead of "Standard" (or, if you take a look at source code: \section*{\include{loremipsum_sub}}) which, naturally, messes things up badly.

You shouldn't consider that embarrassing. LyX tends to hide things from the user, mostly to make things easier for him, which can be really troublesome sometimes. Now you see that with LyX you have to have your eyes everywhere, all the time

BTW, you should mark the thread as solved.

How to mark a topic accordingly is clearly written in Section 3 of the Board Rules (to be read before posting).

Best regards and welcome to the board
