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 Brian In article <95glt6$8ge at smc.vnet.net>, Raul Martinez <rmartinez at vrinc.com> wrote: > Mathgroup, > > Typing inText mode, when I click the Basic Input palette to typeset the > summation (the large sigma symbol) or the product (the large pi symbol), > the upper and lower limits of the operation show up in line with the > symbol instead of above and below the symbol. > > When I type the same symbols in Input mode, the limits show up > correctly, above and below the symbol. > > How can I get the limits to show above and below the symbol in Text > mode. > > Thanks in advance, > > Raul Martinez > > PS.
