Please take a look at this:

**1.1 Section 1.1**

 **1.1.1 Subsection 1.1.1**

 **1.2 Section 1.1**

 **1.2.1 Subsection 1.2.1**

 **Example 1.2.1**


 **Example 1.2.2**


 **1.2.2 Subsection 1.2.2**

 **Example (Section Number).(Example number): Example 1.2.1 continued**

 This example should be numbered Example 1.2.3; means the third example
 in section 1.2.

How do I achieve Example auto-numbering in LyX? and what paragraph environment should I choose for Examples heading?

I'm using LyX 2.0.3 in Ubuntu, book document class. Please note I'm very very new in LyX or LaTeX.


You can use a theorem-like environment, via two theorem-modules:

  1. Go to Document --> Settings --> Modules, add Theorems (Numbered by type) and Theorems (Numbered by type within section).

  2. To create an example, find Example in the drop-down menu in the top left:

  • Umm I don't know how but Theorems (Numbered by type) and Theorems (Numbered by type within section) can't be added. The add button is greyed out dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75813759/… – Nur Jun 14 '13 at 1:26
  • @Nur Probably because you already have Theorems (AMS), I guess they won't work together. Both seem to use amsthm though, so perhaps you can just replace the one you have with the two I mentioned, or use Theorems (AMS, numbered by type) with Theorems (numbered by type within section). This will change the numbering scheme of all your theorems though. – Torbjørn T. Jun 14 '13 at 6:10
  • by the way do you know about adding document class? if so please answer my other question tex.stackexchange.com/questions/118986/… – Nur Jun 14 '13 at 7:31
