Hello,
In a multi-line equation in latex, how to open a bracket at a line and end it at another line?
Regards

You use periods after braces to indicate a "false" starting or ending. You would do something like this:
Code (Text):

\begin{split}
x =& \left( here is some equation \right. \\
& \left. here is the rest \right)
\end{split}
