How To Create Subscript Superscript in Visme?

Superscript and subscript are text formatting styles that change the position of text to make it appear smaller and slightly raised or lowered from the baseline of regular text.

Superscript means the text appears slightly above the normal line of text, like a footnote number or mathematical exponent. For example:

The equation is 2^2^ = 4

Subscript means the text appears slightly below the baseline, like chemical formulas. For example:

H2O is the formula for water

The main reasons to use superscript or subscript formatting are:

  • In math and chemistry formulas to denote exponents, footnotes, etc.
  • To cite sources or references in academic papers
  • Occasionally for visual interest or stylistic flair

But they should be used sparingly as they can disrupt readability if overused. The raised or lowered text catches the eye and makes the words appear disconnected from the rest of the paragraph.

Superscript and subscript change only the vertical alignment, not the font size. But they are often made smaller so they don’t distract from the body text.

There are two main ways to add superscript or subscript text in Visme.

1. Use Textboxes

First, you can make a new textbox and move it up or down to create superscript or subscript.

To do this:

  1. Insert a new textbox
  2. Type your text
  3. Drag the textbox higher or lower on the page
  4. Resize the text if needed

2. Use the Insert Symbol Tool

The other way is using Visme’s “Insert Symbol” tool:

  1. Click on text in the toolbar
  2. Click on edit
  3. After that click on more and select special
  4. Select Symbol from the dropdown menu
  5. Choose the symbol you want to insert

This will add special superscript/subscript symbols around your text.
