I cannot reproduce this. After saving the document and restarting LyX,
the groups that are associated with at least one image are still
present in the document.

To centre a graph within a float you need to explicitly change the
paragraph alignment to 'centre'. In this case Helge's solution could
very well complement mine: when in need of a subsequent figure float,
copy/paste an existing one, click on the image and change the file
name. This way you will have kept all the settings of the original
figure float.

I'm not sure what exactly you're aiming for, but I would suggest that
you experiment with the various 'width' options available (for
example, in addition to 'page' and 'text' you also have 'line width
%'; you may check Help > User's Guide for more info on this), keeping
in mind that you can specify '100 Page Width %', as well as '130 Page
Width %' or '70 Page Width %'. See what works best in your case.
