Perhaps this Notation Package would help. I have not been able to get it to work though.
I am creating a presentation in Mathematica, so I am using all the pretty typesetting (not sure if that is the correct term), so for example when I use an integral I typeas opposed toCode:esc-i-n-t-escAnd now I want to use a limit. Is there some way to do this other thanCode:Integral[...? I scowered the web and the documentation center, and am pretty well convinced that it can't be done. Unless I defined some custom notation, but I have not had much luck doing this with: Lim underscript x->?Code:Limit[
MMA seems to very bitchy about how you type in stuff for the Notation package. Try this:
Load the Notation package:
A new window should pop with a "Notation Palette". Click the first button in that window. In your notebook, you should get something like
Notation[placeholder <==> placeholder]
Replace the left placeholder by
by which i mean that you should use MMA's shorthand way of typing SubscriptBox[lim, x_].
Replace the right placeholder by
That should do the trick.
