I know that LibreOffice Writer can facilitate subscripts and superscripts in ordinary, non-formula, text—when I copy and paste such things from Microsoft Office Word 2007 documents LibreOffice Writer manages to accommodate them. My LibreOffice Writer version is 3.6.4.

I haven't managed to find any better place to ask this question, if there is please direct me to it. I am running 12.10 if it is relevant.

As detailed on the LibreOffice help site:

  • For superscript: Ctrl + SHIFT + P
  • For subscript: Ctrl + Shift + B

For a GUI solution

Use Tools -> Customize... to open the following dialogue, then navigate as shown in the screenshot below:

sub/sup menu items

Adding these will add them to the menu bars and thus give easy gui-based formatting, as opposed to a shortcut.

  • Great answer, mate! If I could I would accept both answers but since I've already promised the other guy to accept his answer. – BH2017 Jan 21 '13 at 12:15
