This style is automatically applied to all inline cells everywhere. One of the options it has set is: ScriptLevel->1 This is what's causing the behavior you're seeing. You can override this with a custom stylesheet. For example, in a given notebook, you can make a private override by doing Format->Edit Stylesheet..., and pasting and interpreting the following cell expression at the end of the resulting stylesheet notebook: Cell[StyleData["InlineCell"], ScriptLevel->0] Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
