I have a hypothesis h : p_1 and p_2 and p_3 and p_4 and I would like to use p_4. Is there a nicer way than writing .right four times?

You can write .2 four (three?) times, not sure if it's nicer!

Well, it uses less ink...

Or, will want to use the other pieces later as well? Then you can split h up using something like

obtain p1, p2, p3, p4 := h,

Well no, actually p1 to p3 are useless for me; but if I understand your hint, this would pout p1 to p4 in the list of hypothesis?

I believe obtain ⟨-, -, -, p4⟩ := h, also works, and throws away all hypotheses other than p4.

Thanks! Let me check

Or you can do have p4 := h.2.2.2 (this will not remove h from the list of hypotheses)

Oh yes, the first works - thanks!
