I am trying to bring up LyX on a mac. One of the first things in the tutorial is to go look at the file named
I know the file is on my machine because I found it using terminal, i.e.,
find / name "example_raw.lyx" -print 2> /dev/null reveals that the file is in
But, when I try to open it from the LyX GUI, there doesn't seem to be any way for me to navigate to the folder that contains the file -- everything inside
/Applications is greyed out and denies any kind of clicking; I tried all thirty-two combinations of option, command, control, shift and double versus single clicking.
I suspect this is more of a general question concerning the open-dialog on Mac. I am VERY NEW to the Macintosh GUI even though I know Unix well and Windows well. I'll take any solution to this problem, either specific or general: a way just to keyboard in the path I want, or some way to click around that will let me get to my stuff, or some LyX-specific solution that gets me access to their examples.
All this user-friendliness is frustrating :)
