    Limit notation in Mathematica

    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 type
    Code:
    esc-i-n-t-esc
    as opposed to
    Code:
    Integral[...
    And now I want to use a limit. Is there some way to do this other than
    Code:
    Limit[
    ? 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->?
    Any ideas?

    NAotation Package

    Perhaps this Notation Package would help. I have not been able to get it to work though.

    MMA seems to very bitchy about how you type in stuff for the Notation package. Try this:

    Load the Notation package:
    <<Notation`

    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
    lim--Crtl-_--x_
    by which i mean that you should use MMA's shorthand way of typing SubscriptBox[lim, x_].

    Replace the right placeholder by
    Limit[f_, x_]

    That should do the trick.
