====================================================================== 3.00 3.01 3.02 4.00 MACINTOSH kbusage SUMMARY ======= ———————————————————————- The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 3.0 , 3.01, 3.02, 4.0 ==


Making the text superscript or subscript in Microsoft Word may not appear to function correctly if the document or selected text already has superscript or subscript character formatting applied to it. The text enters normally, but is positioned at the same level as the other text in the paragraph.

This problem commonly occurs when the entire document has been set to either superscript or subscript. The spacing appears to be normal, but in actuality it is shifted slightly up or down.

To see if the document has superscript or subscript applied to it, select a section of text and choose Character from the Format menu. The superscript or subscript radio buttons will be filled in if the text has had superscript or subscript formatting applied to it.


If the superscript or subscript is part of a style that is applied to the paragraphs, the same situation will occur.
