Specifically, how can I create the limits of integration for the antiderivative of an integral (see freehand circle)?
You can specify an empty left bracket with
\left. Your specific example would look like this:
\left 1/2 v^2+(u+1)v|_0^u
or after replacements:
├ 1/2 v^2+(u+1)v┤|_0^u
Actually, it's pretty much the same technique you would use in (La)TeX.
Minor nitpick: You should use
\dd for the integration d in the formula. This automatically ensures an upright glyph and a small space before the d.
In the Equation's Design tab, click on Bracket and insert the Single Bracket that has a straight line to the left, and its contents go to the right. Click inside its content dotted box and the click on Bracket again but this time choose the Stack Object - the one without parameters. That should get you there. All you have to do now is fill in the bottom and upper boxes. I hope this helps.
Hmmm. Can't get anything that looks very good, but you can add a fraction, then right click that to remove the dividing line ('fraction bar'), this at least gives you the effect of a superscript directly above a subscript which looks OK. Using character 2502 instead of pipe is a slightly better version of a longer vertical line, but still way off ideal. You could split this into two equations in separate controls, then put the pipe between them, which gives you the option to change the font size independently from the rest.
Last resort, do everything else (including a fraction with no dividing line), then use the shapes tool to draw a vertical line where you need it (hold shift while you draw to snap to true vertical)
My solution to this is to type the following:
\vphantom will create an invisible item with the height of the bit in parentheses but 0 width. Make sure to hit space after the parentheses.
Are you are needing the square brackets representing an integral evaluation???
If so create a regular square bracket with the integral within it then highlight the entire bracket and go to the "script" button and select the third option encompassing superscript and subscript.
Your square brackets will now have the limits of integration on them.
