This question already has an answer here:

I find myself barely using (). Instead, I always use \left(\right). Keeping typing that long string really kills me.

I have tried this, but no luck.


Hence, I am looking for a way that forces the compiler to interpret () into \left(\right) in math mode.

    IMO this is a bad idea: automatic sizing should be used sparingly, since it too often chooses larger delimiters than necessary. – Paul Gessler Dec 28 '14 at 14:24
  • @PaulGessler Thanks a lot for your kind advice. So the best way would be manually selecting the size every time? Wont that be a bit troublesome? – Sibbs Gambling Dec 28 '14 at 14:27
  • You could have ( and ) being active characters, but I would suggest using the nath package. Also I think this is a really bad idea. – Henri Menke Dec 28 '14 at 14:37
