# Thread: How do i get subscripts?

1. ## How do i get subscripts?

hi guys, hoped you all had a good xmas. I know that the shift key and the 6 key = ^ can anyone tell me what the opposite keys are os that the numbers or letters appear lowercase. thanks trigger

2. is it not \_

???

3. ## RE: how do i?

hi i don't seem to have that symbol on my keyboard. trigger.

4. e.g. wrapping math tags around x_0 gives $x_0$

If you mean showing x_0 instead of x^n, use shift "-". If you are talking about subscripts and super scripts (there is no such thing as "lowercase" numbers) it is not any single key: enter [ math ] without the spaces, then enter the latex and, finally, [ \math ], again without the spaces.

For example $a_2x^3$.

Clicking on that expression should show you the code.
