On closer examination, the behavior is actually more complex: it appears that upon entering or creating a math mode element inside a box, LyX attempts to scroll the math mode element (if necessary and possible) such that vertical space appearing below it in the editing window is greater than or equal to the vertical extent of the box. (I previously believed it tried to place the math mode element at the top because all my examples were done inside boxes greater than the height of the window.) Can anyone reproduce this? Thomas
