I am using Latex for typesetting technical document. The default \int command produces the integral sign in somewhat slanting style. But I need the integral sign which look straight as I get in Mathtype software. Even though one may feel, why can't I just accept the default style of integral sign in Latex, out of curiosity, i want to know how can I make Latex to get my desired integral sign.

Hi n.karthick,

You can use \varint from the wasysym package; for example the following has both types of integral symbols:

Code (Text):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{wasysym}

\begin{document}

\varint_a^b  dx\ x^2 \qquad \int_a^b  dx\ x^2

\end{document}
