Re: Typesetting summation and product symbols


Select the summation sign and the limits
Use menu>Formating>Option Inspector
Look up Limits Positioning (choose the occurrence in
UnderoverscriptBoxOptions)
Set the value of this to False.

This is the most local way of dealing with the matter: we could set the
option for a cell, several cells, a notebook, or at the Global level.

You will have notced another way, using the option LimitPositioningTokens.
