#176 Latex code from summary stats table does not compile under Latex


When copying latex code from the summary statistics table (right click on variable->summary statistics->tex->copy) there is an extra characters on each line that prevents the proper compilation of the latex code. The extra character is %. It comes after the name of each statistic. Sample latex code copied from gretl would look like this:

1 \begin{center}
2 Summary Statistics, using the observations 1--10\
3 for the variable test (10 valid observations)\[8pt]
5 \begin{tabular}{r@{.}lr@{.}lr@{.}lr@{.}l}
6 \multicolumn{2}{c}{Mean}%
7 & \multicolumn{2}{c}{Median}%

So the last character on line 6 and 7 is unnecessary.

A work around for this issue is to manually remove the % from each line but this is tedious.

Sample session for quick testing of the issue is attached.
I am using Miktex 2.9 with lyx for compilation of the latex code.

      The % signs should be harmless, they are just TeX's comment character,
      and have the effect in context of joining the lines. The source
      compiled fine using TeXLive, so I suspect a Miktex bug. That said,
      I've removed them in CVS since they're just a stylistic thing.
