There is a way to declare all subscripted symbols to be symbols. Just use Symbolize with a Blank subscripted with another Blank. It's a little hard to write down in 1D syntax, but something like Symbolize[___] where the middle blank means subscript. As far as the palette goes, check out the web site http://www.wolfram.com/support/Packages/Utilities/Typing.html which gives a way of using Symbolize without the palette.
