I use the AMS multi-line environment a lot for homework, and I would like it to replace the regular math environment.
I use LyX, 3.2.2.
How can I do this?
Thank you very much!

You can use the LyX function
math-mutate align to change any math environment into an AMS align one (see Help>Lyx Functions for the full list of functions).
To implement this by changing the action of the shortcut, go to Tools>Preferences>Editing>Shortcuts, find the shortcut that you currently use to open a math environment (the command will probably be
math-display), double-click it and change the function to
command-sequence math-display; math-mutate align;, OK and save. Note
command-sequence just allows you to chain multiple functions together.
If this isn't exactly what you want, I'm sure you get the idea!
