Create superscript or subscript text or numbers using keyboard shortcuts

To make text appear slightly above (superscript) or below (subscript) your regular text, use these keyboard shortcuts:

  • For superscript, select the text or number that you want, and then press Ctrl, Shift, and the Plus sign (+) at the same time.

  • For subscript, select the text or number that you want, and then press Ctrl and the Equal sign (=) at the same time.

You can undo your decision and turn superscript or subscript off by selecting your text and then pressing Ctrl and the Spacebar.
