oh thanks  for reminding  me of this :D I used it once; much better.

I am always hesitant about keybindings since I never know If I'm using 
a binding used by the system. For example, I do know that I can't use 
F12 as David does since F12 is used for another  software that runs on 
the system all the time  F12 is what brings it out when I need it!

Hello again,

I believe I didn't clear it out well. I meant a shortcut for the 
eqnarray not the equation numbering.

The default of your stated functions are:

math-number-line-toggle: Alt+M Shift+N
math-number-toggle: Alt+M N

both of which do the same thing; I already use the second one for 
numbering.

Note: LyX 2.0.3 on Ubuntu 10.04

 You can define keyboard shortcuts to substitute for many, if not all,
 menu choices.  I only use a few such shortcuts, and not for line
 numbering since I don't do that so often.  Look under Tools 
 Preferences  Shortcuts  Mathematical symbols, for
 math-number-line-toggle and math-number-toggle and assign them as you
 prefer.

 Another question is regarding fullscreen mode; the math toolbar pops out
 when I use Ctrl(+Shift)+M  that's useful, but what about the main

Number This Line. However, they seem to be the same thing.


The problem is that a matrix does not really give you a multi-line
formula, it is a one-line formula including a matrix. To get a
multiline formula, use one of the aligned environments. I prefer the
eqnarray environment. Then you can number each line of the multi-line
environment. I will attach a simply LyX file showing first an eqnarray
environment, then a matrix environment, both numbered, but the matrix
only allows numbering of the whole thing.


Thanks that did the trick



The gather environment will also do, or the equation array environment,
but not, perhaps surprisingly, the multiline environment, which is
specifically intended to a single equation that spans many lines

Actually the equation array environment appears not to do individual 
line numbering. It has the same effect as inset matrix
