Ok. I understand now. You're just not using the program correctly :-}.

Math equations are not adjusted with 'paragraph settings'. There are
two types of equations in LyX: Inline and Display. Inline is an
equation that is inline with text and Display is an equation centered
on its own line.

To access the two types use: Insert->Math->Inline Formula or Display
Formula. Alternatively, you can use Command->M for Inline formula and
Command+shift->M for Display formula on MacOSX.

You may also want to take some time to read through some of the
documentation available in the Help menu. For instance: Help->User's
Guide Chapter 5 or Help->Math. These issues are explained there.
