Superscript text or symbols such as registered trademark?

May 02, 2017

Hi - I'm new to Rise. Could someone tell me how to use symbols in superscript in the titles, headers and text? Currently, I can copy a symbol into the course but it is not superscript size.

When developing training for products or companies, these symbols are critical.

Hi Elaine! 

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!

Inserting symbol and copying and pasting does not work. It looks like this:

The trademark is not superscript. After reading the other discussion, I realize that we won't be able to put in reference numbers either. This is disappointing.

We were planning on using Rise to build courses for a customer who requires referencing on content. Unfortunately, I don't think we will be able to use it now.

I'll review using the unicode characters but I am not sure that will be a solution. Do you know when this feature  will be completed?

Hi Elaine, 

I know the copy/paste was inconsistent as a workaround - for example it worked for me, but not for my colleague.  I have heard that the Unicode characters is working well for those who couldn't copy/paste.

I don't have an update regarding if this feature will be included in Rise, but it has been shared with the Product team! I'll keep you posted here about any changes.
