Making the LyX version number visible
Sometimes it is convenient to have the LyX version number visible, e.g., when two different versions of LyX are open at the same time, as can happen when testing an alpha or beta release of a new version. A simple way to make the LyX version number visible is to change the label on the [Help] button in the menu bar by adding the version number to it.
To do this go to the ui subdirectory in the
Near the start of the file you will find the word Menubar followed by a list of Submenus. The last on the list is Submenu "Help|H" "help". If you are using version 2.2.3 of LyX, change that to
Submenu "Help 2.2.3|H" "help"
Save the changed file. Next time you start this version of LyX the version number will be visible, displayed on the [Help 2.2.3] button of the menubar.
