LyX is software that was developed with the aim of providing its users with a different kind of document processor with an aim of inspiring a different type of approach in writing in such a way that it will be based on not just the appearance of what the user wrote but the structure of the document itself. It is a combination of having a different kind of interface that is graphical and at the same time providing both the flexibility and the power of LaTeX/TeX. It works on Unix/Linux, Mac OS X as well as Windows and is being supported in various languages. It offers a different kind of approach of managing fonts in an abstracted manner but is simpler at the same time. LyX offers different features specifically designed for indexing, referencing, labelling and for creating bibliography which includes BibText among the other features that it offers which can be found in its website.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .lyx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .lyx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
