Re: Typesetting summation and product symbols

Raul, The easiest way to do this is to use the summation symbol from the
Basic Calculations Palette and not the Basic Input palette. As far as I
can tell, inline cells have the ScriptLevel option set at 1 when you
select from the basic Input palette, while ScriptLevel is set at 0 when
you use the Basic Calculations palette. The former ensures that you do
not have large spaces between text lines when you use
subscripts/superscripts in an inline cell. Perhaps others on this group
have more insight into this pesky problem
