Small tip for Hebrew LyX users – Stop the Gibberish

Are you using LyX with Hebrew?

Isn’t it annoying that when CAPSLOCK is on the entire text goes Gibberish?

The problem lays in the fact that by default some of the capital letters are mapped to the hebrew Niqqud characters. There for, when you type ‘S’ for example you will get a Dagesh.

How to solve it? Just edit: “C:\Program Files\LyX20\Resources\kbd\hebrew.kmap” (replace “C:\Program Files\LyX20\” with your installation folder) and comment all the lines (using # as comment) below the line:

# Hebrew points (nikud)

Restart LyX and we are done!
