I have the Example environment as a new theorem environment but I need to break the example across the article. Ideally I would like to implement the following:

Example 1. blah blah blah ...

... more text form the article ...

Example 1 (continued). other blah blah blah

I tried to define a newtheorem* environment \newtheorem*{ex1}{Example 1} but then I lose the bold part and the "continued" does not appear in parenthesis:

Example 1. continued

I was thinking the perhaps re-setting the counter manually before and after would solve it. But is this possible? Is there some better solution?


In your particular case it might be easiest to do this:


And then write

    \begin {example} 
    Lorem ipsum

    continued lorem ipsum

This will allow multiple breaks as well. If you want to, you can also define the examplecontinued-environment to automatically display "(continued)" behind "Example [counter] ". How to do stuff like that is very well described in the amsthm-documentation.
