LyX is a free and open source document processor app filed under text editors and made available by LyX Team for Windows.

The review for LyX has not been completed yet, but it was tested by an editor here on a PC and a list of features has been compiled; see below.

A powerful WYSIWYG document editor with TeX / LaTeX support:

LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).

LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script.

Features and highlights
  • Support for many graphic formats (including EPS, SVG, XFig, Dia and others)
  • WYSIWYG for cropping, rotation, scaling of images
  • Enhanced support for intelligently floating figures and tables
  • Support for subfigures, subtables and captions
  • Support for wrapped figures and tables
  • Interactive WYSIWYG tables
  • Shared (geometry) settings for multiple figures
  • Access to all LaTeX functionality with capability to insert plain LaTeX code anywhere in a document.
  • Import and export to many formats (LaTeX, PDF, Postscript, DVI, ASCII, HTML, OpenDocument, RTF, MS Word, and others) thanks to configurable converters
  • Send a fax from within LyX
