Medical student here, find myself using sub/super scripts a lot.

Wanted to know if there was a way to speed up the process.

Could you please be more specific what are you trying to achieve? In which application?

Hi Marko,

I frequently have to write things like P2Y12, where the 12 should be a subscript; applications are various, sometimes browsers, word, excel, pdf readers, etc.

However, if i manually make it a subscript, and add it to autocomplete's learned list, next time I start typing, the formatting is not preserved.

Is there anyway to possibly make it preserve the subscript?

Thank you.

You would need to manually add a new item to Auto Complete.
String: p2y12
Substitute: P2Y¹²

You could also make a shortcut with a selection list:

Code: Select all

⁰
/¹
/²
/³
/⁴
/⁵
/⁶
/⁷
/⁸
/⁹
