Show inline math as if it were display math

Yesterday I've stumbled upon an article which covered just that, but I can't find it anymore.

How can I put the integration bounds above/below the integration operator instead of the default, where they're next to the symbol and push the integration term to the right?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Do not use inline mode, but displaymath mode instead! See p.12 and following of mathmode.pdf and Show inline math as if it were display math! –  hakaze Aug 14 '12 at 9:10
I'm using the equation environment. I wasn't aware that it didn't use display mode. Thanks! –  Joe Doe Aug 14 '12 at 9:18
We can hardly know what exactly you do unless you provide a minimal working example. Anyways, I believe that the limits positioning is covered in the question linked by @hakaze. –  tohecz Aug 14 '12 at 9:28

Use the \displaylimits command.

\int_a^b f(x) \, \mathrm{d} x \quad \int\displaylimits_a^b f(x) \, \mathrm{d} x


See page 16 of the amsmath package documentation for details (although you don't actually need amsmath for this).

Just \limits will also do. –  Torbjørn T. Aug 14 '12 at 10:29
