Hi, Doug,

Other people how use R (as I do not) will probably have more helpful
things to say. But I suspect that this can be done using 'external
templates'. Have a look at section 6 of the Customization manual and,
more helpfully, the templates that already exist, which you will find in
the xtemplates/ directory of you LyX system library directory (whose
location is given in the About LyX dialog). If it looks like this might
work, then there will be people here willing to help you write the template.


PS Glad you have found LyX so useful!
