Creating independent numbering of theorem environments
Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
In many documents, all of the theorem-like environments use a common numbering scheme and are typeset in a single sequence, as in this series:
Theorem 1, Corollary 2, Lemma 3, Theorem 4, Lemma 5, etc.
If you're familiar with TeX and LaTeX and the \newtheorem statements that determine the numbering scheme and appear in the document preamble, you can create an independent numbering sequence for each type of theorem-like environment, as in this series:
Theorem 1, Corollary 1, Lemma 1, Theorem 2, Lemma 2, etc.
Sometimes the \newtheorem statements are included in the typesetting specifications for the shell. In that case, don't attempt to modify the statements. Instead, choose a different shell in which theorem statements are numbered to your liking.
