You will find a relevant example in the help browser at Add-Ons>  
Extra Utilities > Notation > Fuctions in the section Notation  
Symbolize and InfixNotation
It looks s if what you need do, after loading the Notation package, is 
	1.type input
		A_   (* subscript - *)
	2. select the expression just typed on Symbolize[<SelectionPlaceholder>] (*don't type  
in Symbolize[  ]*) and then enter the resulting input
