Hi Nasser,

You'll likely get a number of replies with the same answer: use one of =
the palettes in Mathematica 7.

For example,

(1) Basic Math Assistant palette, Typesetting, click on the first tab =
from the left. You'll see a button that does what you want.
(2) Writing Assistant palette: same steps

You can also do the same thing with the keyboard.

x,  Ctrl-6, 2, Ctrl-5, 1

I hope this helps.

Richard Hofler

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
