According to this link,  http://www.articulate.com/support/storyline-2/superscript-and-subscript-keyboard-shortcuts-arent-working, in Storyline Version 2, select the character you want to superscript, go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click the arrow in the lower right corner of the Font group, and mark the Superscript or Subscript box on the Font window.

For some bizarre reason, I think Articulate removed the superscript and subscript shortcut icons from the toolbar. And the keyboard shortcut is not working. This requires us to dive deeper into Storyline to complete the task, unless I am missing something. I am going to request restoring the super and subscript icons to the toolbars (as a new feature). Hope this helps.

Hi Leslie,

Thank you for the response! Yes, I highlight only the symbol I want to convert to superscript, but the results are inconsistent. Sometimes it turns the whole text box to superscript, sometimes it converts the symbol and then all the text that follows (and one time it converted only the symbol correctly). My colleague suggested it might be the size of the text box, but that doesn't make sense to me.

I always run the program updates, close out of Storyline when I'm not using it, etc.
