LyX v2.0.6 on Linux. Document class is
book (extra font sizes).
I have a master document including two child documents (so far), both of which are the same document class as the master. The first child has some non-numbered chapters (chapter*). The second child document begins with Part I, after which I want to begin numbered chapters.
I begin a new paragraph (hit Return) and select Chapter from the style drop-down. I get a big bold "Chapter 1". So far, so good.
Almost anything I do after that makes the Chapter heading disappear.
For example, I pasted in text for the first paragraph of the chapter but it appeared in Chapter style. Changing it to Standard made the chapter heading disappear. Then I inserted another line above the paragraph and changed that to a chapter. Then, when I press the down arrow to continue editing my text, the heading disappears again.
How can I have a book that consists of Parts with numbered chapters in LyX?
The chapters stay if they have a non-empty name. I don't really want to name them, but it seems I can use a hard space (ctrl+space). Am I thereby Doing It Wrong, or is this an appropriate workaround for the situation?
