Todd, I’m not sure of the answer to this question, but I’ve shared it with the Teaching Math in Canvas group and a Calculus Prof here in the Community. Hopefully this will help to get you an answer.

Todd,

Switch to the advanced view for the equation editor and you can type LaTeX. Here's a link to a page on integrals, sums, and limits using LaTeX that might answer additional questions for you.

- To get lim use \lim
- to get the limit under the word lim, use \limits or \displaystyle. \displaystyle also makes fractions full-size.

Here are four examples and the way they are rendered, respectively, in Canvas. You can see that if you use \displaystyle, you don't need \limits (#1 and #3 are displayed the same in this case)

`\displaystyle\lim\limits_{x\to\infty}\frac{e^{3x}}{x^2}`

\lim\limits_{x\to\infty}\frac{e^{3x}}x^2}

\displaystyle\lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{e^{3x}}{x^2}

\lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{e^{3x}}{x^2}
