Re: [isabelle] insert for one subgoal?


try "apply (insert xxx) []".
The []-Syntax restricts the effect of any apply-command to the first
subgoal. There is also [n] to restrict the effect to the first n

No idea what the reason is why some commands (auto, insert, etc) work on
all goals, while others (blast, force, etc. ) do not.
