In my honours at UWA (2008), I was the lone cowboy who decided to LyX instead of LaTeX. It saved me a shitload of time and LaTeX related anguish. As such, I thought I’d offer a UWA Thesis Template up to give a helping hand to anyone else who wants to give LyX a stab. In retrospect, there’s a few things I did dodgy along the way (I was pretty stressed out though, in my defense). Even so, I reckon it’ll be useful for some.

A few hot tips:

- Press Ctrl + L to manually enter LaTeX, whenever you can’t do it out-of-the-box
- Press Ctrl + M to enter maths mode
- Learn all the maths shortcut key combinations (e.g. press Alt + M, then F to input a fraction)
- Watch some youtube videos, like this one, to help you get up to speed

Good luck…
