Hi Eberhard,

thank you for your comments. What is my actual issue?
Some time ago I've uploaded a 800 p. LyX-generated PDF-file as an
OpenAccess document to our uni-server. And now I'm writing
an new separate appendix to this document and in this appendix I want
references to many formula of my published big PDF-document.
So I tried the Master-Child feature but in the separate compiled child
the references are not available.
If LyX doesn't support such an application I see only the possibility of
creating the 50 p. appendix in the 800 p. master document and then
cropping the 800 p. with a PDF-editor, because I cannot upload for each
new appendix a new edition of the big PDF.
But maybe there is a better way to handle this :-)
