Description dpp 2004-03-02 16:55:10 UTC
In the formula

int{1 over 2 dx}

the height of the integral operator is less than the height of the fraction.
the size of the integral symbol should be increased to match the size of 
larger possible objects

Asking two other Mathematician  colleagues we all concluded that this would be a
bad idea. Sth like this usually does not happen in printed texts (only in hand
drawn formulas).
If for example you have the formula 
  int{1 over 2 dx}  int{ {hat 1} over {hat  2} dx}
you surely not want to have the integral sign in two different sizes just be
because the attributes in the second part. 
To exaggerate a bit: you surely don't want to have a single line with 5 slightly
different sizes for each integral operator symbol in it. Would look rather odd.

Therefore this won't be changed.

However you may file a request for enhancement for this issue if you really
think this to be a must have. It would be possible to introduce something
similar to the scaleable brackets. Though I'm still quite sure that

You may also try sth like this as a workaround:
  size *1.4 int {} {1 over 2 dx}
Unfortunately the numerical value has to be changed for each formula though...
