Could not solve your problem, but I found a very nice looking work-around. Try to get your derivative by writing Esc p d Esc Cntrl- x Cntrl space x^2 It should look like d Subscript x x^2 Very strange to write down the Mathematica special characters and notations, I hope you understand. It looks much nicer than the Derivative expression Oli "Tim 9-23" <bendoftimeb at stny.rr.com> schrieb im Newsbeitrag news:9j65da$2fg$1 at smc.vnet.net... > I thought I would get the answer which is 2x, but I'm getting (x^2)'. > > So my question is, how do I get the program to find the derivative and > not just re-write it in another form.
