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} \begin{equation} \varint_a^b dx\ x^2 \qquad \int_a^b dx\ x^2 \end{equation} \end{document}
