  1. Open the Stencils Panel in the left-hand sidebar.

  2. Click the Sigma symbol under Special Elements and drag and drop it onto the drawing canvas.

  3. Enter your expression in the resulting MathType dialog presented in the lower-right corner of the Drawing Tool.

  4. Click Insert when your expression is ready.

  5. Your mathematical expression will be inserted as a new image stencil with a new part number.

    Note that once inserted, this expression is no longer editable at this time. If you wish to make changes, you will need to create a new expression.
