I use LyX for some time now, but have not figured out how to put two "examples" (or exercises or theorems etc.) one after the other without having to separate them by a different environment.

What happens: say I'm in the "example" environment and finished writing example No 1. I hit enter to start a new paragraph. LyX then allows me to choose a different environment like "standard text" starting from the new paragraph, but I'm unable to start a new example No 2.

I hope someone knows a simple solution.

At the end of the first example add a --Separator-- (from the list of text environments).

Thanks a lot I was obviously being completely ignorant. –  Michael Feb 17 '12 at 13:48
@Michael: Never mind. I had been using LyX for years until I discovered that --Separator-- actually is a layout. Before that I did consider it as a visual element to group stuff within the layout menu. –  Daniel Feb 17 '12 at 17:15
