# Modify/Remove italic correction in math [duplicate]

• @PaulGessler: According to the comments on the answer I linked, the extra space is indeed based on the italic correction whether it's called that or not. Also I can use explicit operators such as $\cdot$ or $\times$ for multiplication and I see no reason I have to keep using \mathit for every single polygon. – user21820 Feb 15 '15 at 2:07
