# Using the cases environment in LyX

In LyX, how does one add multiple cases to a cases environment?

When I insert the cases template, I get the opening bracket followed by two placeholder boxes, i.e.

{□□

I can put as much math in those two placeholders as I want, but I haven't been able to figure out how to add rows to this environment. Any ideas?

Try Shift+Enter or Control+Enter.

Ctrl+Enter it is. Thanks! –  kpozin Nov 30 '09 at 15:11

In LyX, there is an Add Row button close to the Case Environment button. It is unavailable before being in the case environment, but it does the job afterwards.

within the Google Document editor this problem also occurs and

\begin{cases}
1st\\
2nd\\
3rd\end{cases}


worked for me.
