# LaTeX: newcommand not working?

Image attached: I recently tried using the newcommand but like always it often doesn't render the \int or the integration sign, I know this becuase if I remove it from the body, everything seems fine.

• Be careful with these. As a sort of fluke, new commands defined in higher answers affect the TeX on lower answers too. Although rare, this causes problems if multiple users create new commands for the same things.

• @mixedmath to be exact about the situation:there was no answers above me, OP didn't added any newcommands; maybe when you see the situation remains same here:link Dec 31 '14 at 17:26
• Since it seems to be reproducing inconsistently, do you know which browser (and what version) you were using when it occurred? Dec 31 '14 at 23:37

• I you put this code into your answer yourself, does the preview render correctly? Dec 31 '14 at 18:32
• currently it seems working, but as I have attached the image, sometimes it does frustate me Dec 31 '14 at 18:34
