This really isn't the right newsgroup for help, as it's a LaTeX
question rather than an emacs one.




In LaTeX you have options to make a glyph bigger on screen and on paper. This feature is not provided in GNU Emacs since it uses the glyphs as they come out of a font in the size of the text used (set) with this font. Options can be to create a fontset that uses for ∑ the glyph from another font (or same font at larger size) or it's associated with a particular face that takes the bigger glyph from another font.


My final (we had some private eMail conversation) recommendation for Torben was to apply the preview option of AUCTeX on (some) formulas that they look as they should (in his opinion) – at least this will show that TeX won't make the mistake of choosing too small symbols. Another option would be to use a specialised TeX editor like TeXmacs or Lyx that has more graphical capabilities ...
