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 ________________________________ From: Nasser M.

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
