Re: Typesetting summation and product symbols


Try this: type your text in a text cell (for example with Alt+7), and your
summation or integration symbols taken from the basic input palette. Then
select the cell and Cell | Convert To | Traditional Form and then Cell |
Display As | Traditional Form. This should do the job. If the font changes
to Courier (and you don't want it that way) try again Cell | Convert To |
Traditional Form.
