I would like to put an enumerated list into the body of a Lemma environment, in Lyx. This is what I would have:

Lemma 1. First line of the statement
    i)  condition 1
    ii) condition 2
  last line of the statement.
Proof. .......

But when I set "enumerated list" for the two central lines, then the last line (before proof) is shown as a separated Lemma:

Lemma 1. First line of the statement
    i)  condition 1
    ii) condition 2
Lemma 2. last line of the statement.
Proof. .......

As explained in section 3.4 Nesting Environments of Lyx User's Manual, you can nest environments simply selecting the inner environment and applying Increase Depth from the toolbar.

that is a problem with the way how LyX works, it inserts an empty line. You can try to use the LaTeX mode inside LyX. Hit Ctrl-L after the word in the first line of the Lemma where you want to insert the enumerate list. Then insert in the red box

\enumerate \item condition \item another \endenumerate

then move the cursore out of the box, hit enter and write the following text of the Lemma.
