My problem is that when I want to insert a list after having inserted a definition, LyX seems to end the \begin{defn} block and start the \begin{itemize} block. What I want is to have the \begin{itemize} block inside the \begin{defn} one. How can I do this whithout having to modify tex code?

Simply hit Alt + Shift + to make the new block nested in the current one.

EDIT As noted by @scottkosty bellow, Tab works also

    tab should work also. And note to get out of the nesting just press return a few times.
