I sorry, but I don't understand your answer completely. I want to give my
equations numbers, i.e. from (1.1), (1.2),.to (3.3.) f. ex.. Is that the
purpose of the label function? If not, what function doe that?

To the first part of your answer. The equations I want to label are centered
and stand alone in their row. I centered them after writing them by using
the paragraph settings.

To your answer Bob: I am using a mac book with Mach OS X  version

 It sounds as if you have a problem with the installation of LyX. This
 is obviously not normal behavior. I would trying reinstalling LyX. It
 may help developer's to know what platform you are using and what
 version of LyX. You may also need to file a bug report if reinstalling
 doesn't help.



 I see it disabled as well, UNLESS the equation is in display mode---i.e.,
 centered by itself on a separate line. It is meant to work that way. The
 reason is that labeled equations are also NUMBERED equations, and the
 mechanism that's used to do the label isn't available if the equation hasn't
 been set off.

 Perhaps part of the confusion is that what LyX calls labels don't
 normally appear in the text. They're just targets for cross-references. So
 you can label the equation if you like by putting a label after it. But it
 won't have a number, and the only cross-reference you'll be able to do will
 be by page, really.

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.

Yes, true. People---especially Uwe---have put a lot of work into those 
guides. Much of what's in them you probably don't need to know, so I 
usually recommend that people read the Tutorial fairly closely, and then 
read the User's Guide quickly, just skimming parts that don't really 
interest them. The other manuals contain tons of useful 
information---but not for everyone, since they're more specialized. I've 
never read the Embedded Objects manual, for example, since it basically 
doesn't apply to me. Remember too that you can use the Navigate menu, or 
open the Outline, to see a table of contents and decide what you might 
want to read. Oh, and that you can ViewPDF and then print the manuals

 I'm a little confused you may have to explain further. What do you

 want to label it? What you have done should work. When you create a

Just to make sure we're all on the same page, you're talking about a 
displayed math inset (on its own line), right?  If you have a math inset 
in the middle of a line of text, you won't be able to insert a label 
(the label item on the insert menu is grayed out), because inserting a 
label there makes no sense.  A label in a math inset refers to the 
equation number, and in-line math insets don't get numbered.

It sounds as if you have a problem with the installation of LyX. This

may help developer's to know what platform you are using and what
version of LyX. You may also need to file a bug report if reinstalling
doesn't help.

  
I see it disabled as well, UNLESS the equation is in display 
mode---i.e., centered by itself on a separate line. It is meant to work 
that way. The reason is that labeled equations are also NUMBERED 
equations, and the mechanism that's used to do the label isn't available 
if the equation hasn't been set off.


Perhaps part of the confusion is that what LyX calls labels don't 
normally appear in the text. They're just targets for cross-references. 
So you can label the equation if you like by putting a label after it. 
But it won't have a number, and the only cross-reference you'll be able 
to do will be by page, really.

I can understand that this behavior is confusing for a new comer that

also for inline formulas and automatically switch to displayed formula 
if a label is inserted. Maybe with a warning box that explains what LyX

If you change this to a dialog that says the formula must be numbered 
(and therefore in display mode) to bear a label, and give the user the 
option to either switch it to display mode or scrap the label, that 
would make sense to me.  There may be a larger question here, though. 
It seems to me that there are a variety of situations where a menu item 
won't work and is grayed out (short title and optional argument come to

all of them?  I think (based on list traffic) the optional argument one 
is a more common problem than labels in inline math insets.

 I'm a little confused you may have to explain further. What do you
 mean the label works, but I cannot label the equation? How do you
 want to label it? What you have done should work. When you create a
 pdf of you file the equation should be numbered for instance (1) in
 article class because you entered Insert-Label.
