# Putting the integration bounds below/above the integration operator [duplicate]

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?

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. – yo' Aug 14 '12 at 9:28

Use the \displaylimits command.
\documentclass{article}
$\int_a^b f(x) \, \mathrm{d} x \quad \int\displaylimits_a^b f(x) \, \mathrm{d} x$

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