 Insert - Formatting - Inter-Word Space

 or you can insert a protected space that will prevent line breaks 
on  that space if you want.  You can right-click on the space and 
change  its type.


Personally, I would use a Thin Space in this case (Insert  
Formatting  Thin Space or Ctrl-Shift-space). But this depends on 
the micro-typographical conventions/the taste you adhere to).

I think in English the convention would be a normal sized space, i.e., 
not end of sentence. I think a protected space will give you that.

Hello!

How do you type things like e.g. in lyx? If you do not take special
care, it is translated to latex merely as e.g. and therefore creates
a giant space after the abbreviation. How to avoid that?

Cheers,

Niko
