I'm really happy to try to get rid of MS Word once and for all.
So I start in the use of LateX.
I translate a philosophical book from English to French that contains a lot of mathematical equations. (For those interested, this is the first volume of Mario Bunge's Treatise on Basic Philosophy.)
I use LyX on Windows with the AMS Book document class.
As the screenshot shows, the section is numbered 1.1 and the subsection is numbered 1.1.1.
Is there a simple way to have the section numbered 1 and the subsection numbered 1.1 instead. In other words, I would like to remove the number associated with the chapter at the beginning of each section and subsection.
Maybe there is already a document class that numbers this way?
