Opening a default blank document in Overleaf, the \iint symbol resolves, but \oiint (closed double integral) does not. Here is my sample. I've tried adding a few \usepackage{} statements. Any ideas?


\author{ }
\date{February 2019}






Here's a shot of my rich text output:

    There are many packages supporting it. – Sigur Feb 14 at 13:30

    Please, choose one package from this list: mirrors.ctan.org/info/symbols/comprehensive/symbols-a4.pdf At the end there is an index. see letter O. – Sigur Feb 14 at 13:32

    (I'm on support staff on Overleaf.) The rich-text renderer uses MathJax, which supports many LaTeX math commands, but by no means all of them. For further details, check this question on Math Meta. If you have the appropriate packages included in your document, the symbol should appear in the compiled output on the right, which is different from the MathJax-based rendering on the left pane. – Paul Gessler Feb 14 at 14:29

Paul Glesser from Overleaf had the answer. I'll summarize:

The Rich Text pane uses MathJax which doesn't have full support for all math symbols. When I add the following package, I get the desired result in my PDF file:
