GridBox has AllowScriptLevelChange->True. So, use either: Column[{Integrate[(f[x] + g[x]), {x, a, b}]}, AllowScriptLevelChange->False] or Column[{Style[Integrate[(f[x] + g[x]), {x, a, b}], ScriptLevel->0]}] The first option above colors AllowScriptLevelChange red, but works. Carl Thanks Carl. At my age I'll probably ask again - unless AllowScriptLevelChange is a named option for Column and Grid and there is a link to it on the Column, Grid and ScriptLevel Help pages.
