Insert a vertical bar with integration limits into the equation

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

For example, the Newton-Leibnitz formula:


Sure, you can add the vertical bar and superscript and subscript, but the formula look is not perfect:


To create a good-looking vertical bar with integration limits, do the following:

   1.   Add the formula in your document as usual (see how to add different types of equations).

   2.   In the place, where it is needed, add the vertical line by typing:

  • \vert,
  • \vbar or
  • use the symbol Vertical line in the keyboard.

   3.   Add superscript and subscript as a matrix: under Equation Tools, on the Design tab, in the Structures group, click the Matrix button. In the Matrix list choose 3x1 Empty Matrix:

  • In the top box, type the symbol b,
  • In the middle box, type the symbol space,
  • In the bottom box, type the symbol a.

   4.   Format the vertical line:

   4.1.   Select the vertical line:


   4.2.   Under Equation Tools, on the Design tab, in the Conversions group, click the button Text to highlight it:

2 1

   4.3.   Change the font and its size as you prefer.
