    I use LyX 2.2.1 (currently) on Windows 10.

    I have a rather long document (some 600 pages, with 9 chapters +

    Examples, Theorems, etc. **independently** and numbered **by the

    Currently, this doesn’t work. My set-up is:

    ·Document class: Book (Standard Class)

    ·Modules: Theorems (AMS, Numbered by Type)

    What else do I need to set?

I assume the problem is that you are not getting the "numbered by
chapter" bit? If so, then maybe the easiest thing to do is use the
internal LaTeX command \@addtoreset in the preamble, thus:
Now the theorem counter gets reset whenever the chapter counter is reset.

You'll need to do the same thing for any other counters you are using,
and see the theorems-ams-bytype.inc file for the names of the various

Thanks for quick reply. I’ve tested it (inserting
“\@addtoreset{theorem}{chapter}” in the preamble), but now get the
following error messages:

OK. Let me try to be a little bit more precise. Currently, the
counters count independently. In other words, Definition 1, Definition
2, Theorem 1, Definition 3, Theorem 2, Example 1, etc.

However, they (i) do not contain a chapter counter, and (ii) they do
(obviously) not reset the chapter counter in each chapter.

See the attached. Sorry, I got the names of the counters wrong. (I mixed
up the LyX counters and the LaTeX ones.) The LaTeX names are the same as
the names of the environments as they are declared in the preamble, e.g.:
So the counter is "lem" for Lemmas.


Perhaps I've misunderstood, but it seems to me what is wanted is the module Theorems (Numbered by Type within Chapters) that comes with LyX. This allows one to number by type within chapters each of theorems, corollaries, lemmas, propositions, conjectures, facts, definitions, examples, problems, exercises, remarks and claims.
