Allow inline big operators in equation editor
In the equation editor, you can't use a big operator (such as Union, Integral, etc.) inline with its limits and parameters above and below the operator. You can do it if you put it on a line of its own, but once you add text or place the formula inline with other text, all the big operators turn to small ones.
Please allow for this inline as well, it could be very useful.

It is outrageous that this awful bug is still not fixed on November 9 2020.
I imagine some idiotic committee wants to decide formats for the universe of users.
That is entirely INappropriate.
FIX THIS NONSENSE.

Agreed, I use this feature extensively for scientific documents and research publications where you display an equation on a separate line with an equation number on the side. Adding the numbers as normal text forces the equation to the smaller inline display style, which is unneeded and a large problem typesetting certain documents.

Yes! We have to be able to turn off the automatic shrinking that happens when an equation is put inline. The small version is often too tiny, and if I have two fractions or rational expressions, I want them to look the same even if one of them is inline and the other is not. In a document all in Times New Roman size 12, I don't want the fractions to be the only thing that looks different.
I work as a math teacher and at our school everybody still stick to MS Equation 3.0 because of this. This shouldn't be too hard to fix, right?
