Hello Friedrich !

Just write :

MakeBoxes[I, _] := "\[ImaginaryJ]"

(where \[ImaginaryJ] is Esc jj Esc)

You can also write it in the init.m file, so it will be always like you want !

Beste Grüsse

Objet : [mg57812] Remove definitions from I


I want to use the symbol I as symbol for electrical current without any 
definitions. Instead I want to use Esc jj Esc for the imaginary unit like 
it is done in elecrtical engineering.

How can I free the I from any definitions. It is locked!

Thank you

Oliver Friedrich
