Hi, does anyone know how to use subscript within a textbox on storyline please? I.e H2O with the 2 smaller like this? On storyline it shows as all one size...

Hi Melanie,

You may find that the keyboard shortcuts to superscript (Ctrl+Shift+=) and subscript (Ctrl+=) text aren't currently working in Articulate Storyline 2.

This is a known issue. For now, you can superscript and subscript text by going to the Home tab on the ribbon as Elizabeth mentioned, clicking the arrow in the lower right corner of the Font group, and marking the Superscript orSubscript box on the Font window.

Hi Juliana, 

It's actually a feature request I've passed along to our Product team! 

I know myself and a few other community members were able to copy and paste them out of Word into Rise. You'll need to use the options in Word to "insert symbol" not an equation editor. 

Another idea from my colleague was to use the Unicode characters to insert them into the text. Just a quick web search will help you find the ones you need - for example the previous discussion was a user who needed a superscript 6.

Hope that helps!

Hi all,

I wanted to give you a heads up that  we just released another update for Articulate 360, and included a few important fixes and new features that you'll see in the release notes here.  

One of the new Rise features is increased text formatting options, including subscript and superscript. I hope that helps with your writing equations in Rise!  Here’s a quick tutorial on editing text in Rise. 

You can access all the Articulate 360 and Rise tutorials from this page.

Please let us know if you have any questions, either here or by reaching out to our Support Engineers directly.

Are there plans to make superscript as an automatic formatting? In Word, for instance, typing "2nd" will automatically superscript the "nd". I ran into several issues where characters in superscript aren't copied from one software to SL3.

Furthermore, unlike the Size & Position window, the Font window, as well as the Paragraph window, cannot be left opened, so I must adjust all superscript single characters or strings one at the time.

Finally, there is no button in the tool bar to superscript or subscript characters (again, like in Word), unlike buttons to Bold, Italicize and/or underline.
