Apply superscript or subscript formatting to text.

Designer Carol McKeough shows us how to create text in AutoCAD that is formatted to be either a superscript or a subscript.

"I picked up this great tip for subscripting and superscripting mtext from a co-worker. It uses the caret symbol, which is Shift + 6 on the keyboard.

  1. To subscript, type in the following:
    ^desired text string
  2. To superscript, type in the following:
    desired text string^

Then, highlight the text and caret symbol, right-click, and select Stack."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol:
This handy tip is easy to forget about unless you super- or subscript text often. The Stack option in the right-click menu is typically used to create stacked fractions, but as you see, it can do more than that! Instead of right-clicking, you can always click the Stack button in the MText Editor to stack or unstack text.

This tip works in AutoCAD 2009 as well.
