I use this in the latex preamble of the document settings of lyx for the
nomenclature items to be displayed in two columns, to have the symbols
in bold, and to indent the descriptions. I would liek to reduce the
indentation in order to get more space for the text. Unfortunately I
don't know were in the latex preamble below it is done. Can somebody
help me?
