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.
