I sorry, but I don't understand your answer completely. I want to give my equations numbers, i.e. from (1.1), (1.2),.....to (3.3.) f. ex.. Is that the purpose of the label function? If not, what function doe that?
To the first part of your answer. The equations I want to label are centered and stand alone in their row. I centered them after writing them by using the "paragraph settings". To your answer Bob: I am using a mac book with Mach OS X version 10.5.3.The version of LyX I am using is LyX/Mac 1.5.5. Thank you again very much for your help.
