LyX/Mac is a full-featured native implementation of the LyX document processor. It was originally created for Unix, but then eventually ported to Windows and OS X.
LyX/Mac boasts the flexibility and power of TeX/LaTeX and combines it with a straightforward GUI. It is primarily designed to create complex structured documents such as academic articles, books, film scripts, theater plays, and scientific references. The application supports a variety of document formats including LaTeX, CJK LyX, Excel spreadsheet, OpenOffice spreadsheet, and RTF.
The LyX/Mac document processor with many of the standard formatting capabilities you would expect from a word processor but also offers a variety of advanced features. The ribbon enables you to quickly insert math formulas, tables, citations, cross-references, math macros, LyX notes, nomenclature entries, and TeX code. The program also comes with an in-depth tutorial and guides for helping you get working.
LyX/Mac was created by scientists for scientists. Although it provides many basic word processing features, it is not a typical WYSIWYG word processor like Word or OpenOffice's Writer. It is geared toward users that need a program specialized in drafting complex documents, especially those in the scientific and mathematic fields. If you are an OS X user looking for a document processor for your technical content, try LyX/Mac.
