Why was my question closed as too localized?
I asked this question and it was closed as too localized. I read the FAQs specifically what type of questions should and should not be asked here and it seems to be in scope.
I am trying to learn LaTeX and maybe I am going the wrong way about it (by using Lyx) but I have a specific question that needs answering and if it cannot be (or won't be) answered here where do I go for answers. Is this a Q&A site for experts only? I am writing a book (see my profile) on a subject I am an expert on in a format I am not an expert on as there will be more books to follow so I am hoping to get to grips with it. Is it the fact that I am "cutting my teeth" on Lyx rather than full blown LaTeX the reason for being too localized. I would appreciate it if you can help me understand why my question will not be answered here.
