Q. Forcing a line break in the middle of a displayed equation doesn't seem to work. I tried the to insert a newline and a linebreak from the Insert/Spacing/Break dialog box, but the only way I can force a new line is to press Enter within the display. Is there another way?
A. TeX doesn't accept line breaks within displayed equations, so you must break the equation yourself.
As you have discovered, pressing Enter inside the displayed equation creates a multiline equation, a technique that you can use to break your equation. For example, you can have
by following these steps:
TeX thinks you're adding it to the h and therefore treats the + as addition.
