I've been using AutoCAD for a looong time. So long that I can remember that there used to be a "%%" code for subscript and superscript... but too long to remember what those codes were. Or am I just getting senile? (wouldn't shock me).
Can anyone remember what those codes were?
Thanks... that pointed me in the right direction... but the help files lie. It gives you the code, and says it works with certain fonts, both TT and SHX. Among them is Romans. But when I try this, the unicodes show up as a ?. Not cool.
Thanks anyway... you did answer the question.
Here's one way to make a superscript of anything, in MTEXT. Type in whatever verbiage you need, and where you want the superscript to appear, type in a fraction, e.g. 1/2. You should get a dialog for stacking. Accept whatever's there, then highlight the fraction, right click and choose Stack Properties.
In that dialog, black out the lower text, edit the upper text to whatever you want, and change the Appearance Style to Tolerance". voila
JGerth is on the right track, but there is a quicker method to avoid the extra step of removing the unwanted text.
The trick is to insert a carret (ie. "^") either after or before the text you want to super or subscript.
For example, let's say you want to Superscript "10.0ft2" Enter the text as follows: 10.0ft2^ (note the carret adter the "2"), now highlight the 2^, and then click the A/B stacking button
To do H20, enter the text as H^2O, higlight the ^2, and theb click the stacking button
