What about: Subsuperscript[x, 1, 2] David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: Nasser M. Abbasi [mailto:nma at 12000.org] Version 7 I wanted to write something like Superscript[Subscript[x, 1], 2] but have the "2" and the "1" appear on the symbol x without one being pushed forward more than the other. This is trivial to do in latex, but gave up trying to do it in Mathematica. I am actually trying to use Mathematica more to type set some math inside a Text cell, and the above is one problem I find. I actually use the keyboard and type Ctrl9 to open a math cell inside the text cell and type x Ctrl ^2 spacebar Ctrl _1 and I get 2 (x ) 1 when I want 2 x 1 I looked the all the Palettes also that come with Mathematica 7, but do not see such a pattern to use? thanks, --Nasser
