 Well, I use it quite a lot since I have a lot of large figures and sometimes I
 just need an extra line to keep it all together.

 Instead of typing the ERT each time, it would be fancy to have a button
 (and/or shortcut) that includes it ... how do you folks think?

I don't think this is widely used/needed by the general public.

How about creating this keybinding yourself?

It should be something like 
command-sequence; ert-insert; insert \enlargethispage{\baselineskip}

I do not remember the exact macro names now.

* Have a look at the LyX wiki for help with customizing bindings using
  command-sequence.

* Try the command sequence in the minibuffer (Alt-x ...) first.

Alternatively, you could consider defining a special Style in a layout
module and select it via the Style drop-down list (or again a shortcut).

Make sure to document your solution, either in a follow up or (more
durable) in the LyX wiki at wiki.lyx.org.

\bind C-S-B command-sequence float-insert figure; break-paragraph;

How about creating this keybinding yourself?

It should be something like 
"command-sequence; ert-insert; insert \enlargethispage{\baselineskip}"

I do not remember the exact macro names now.

I've never used it myself.   You could bind it to some shortcut easily

Ralf,

I use \enlargethispage on my eBook book cover, but I really don't understand 
it. What you said about keeping something all together sounded interesting, 
because I know as figures start approaching 1/4 page in each length, ugly 
spacing issues happen. Could you please explain the details of 
\enlargethispage to all of us?

Thanks

well, I am far from being a pro, but \enlargethispage simply does that: enlarge
the current page - from a latex documentation:

\enlargethispage{size}:
Enlarge the \textheight for the current page by the specified amount; e.g.
\enlargethispage{\baselineskip} will allow one additional line

\enlargethispage*{size}:
The starred form tries to squeeze the material together on the page as much as
possible. This is normally used together with an explicit \pagebreak

if you have a lot of large figures in a chapter (which i do) it can be difficult
to have them in the place where you would like them and also have a good looking
text - enlargethispage gives you an additional amount of freedom in that case,
so that the paragraph does not continue on the next page with only a few words
