# Tweak the placement and the size of an exponent

How can I place the exponent a little higher and make it a little bigger? As you can see when the exponent is an expression then is seems a little awkward (in my opinion), especially in the document, when it is a lot smaller than in the enlarged picture I provide below.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{unicode-math}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\begin{document}

\begin{equation*}
y= c\cdot e^{\int f_{1}(x)dx}
\end{equation*}

\end{document}

• @egreg I never use && in my documents I just did it in my MWE. I always use the equation environment. – Adam Feb 24 '16 at 18:48
• @egreg You are right I didn't think that. I will edit my question. :) – Adam Feb 24 '16 at 18:51
• In a case like this I'd rewrite using \exp, much more readable – daleif Feb 24 '16 at 19:36
