Do ZWCad has super script fonts, for example 'm2', the '2' after 'm' is small in size and at the 'm' upper right corner. I use the super script font from autocad in the ZWCad, the '2' is at upper right of 'm' but the size is same as the character 'm', in autocad it appear half of the size of character 'm'. Thank you.

Dear g2rd,

I think you are talking about Stack function of text. Yes, ZWCAD support this upperscript text, you can input "m2^" in Mtext, then select "2^" and click the "Stack" button on Mtext editor (the button looks like "b/a"), then you will see the "2" is going upper right of "m".

Then select the "2" and double click on it, you will see the Stack Style Box, here you can adjust the size of the upper/down text to 50%, the default is 70%.

Actually, I am talking about the shx file, in autocad, when I type 20m[2], it will display as 20m2 where the '2' after the 'm' is at the upper right of 'm' and is half the size 'm'. In this shx file autocad use '[' to mark the start of upperscript, and ']' to mark the end of upperscript.
Anyway, thank for reply. I will try to do with the method suggest. Thank you.

Hi

The AutoCAD SHX fonts have limited superscript and subscript capabilities. However, it is relatively easy to modify shape definition files to improve superscript and subscript capability.

Creating superscripts and subscripts requires two steps. First, the

hi lyssagale12Yes, my superscript and subscript follow exactly what you stated. It work for autocad but work partially only for ZWCad. I said partially because the superscript?did not scale down in ZWCad. Recently I download a trial version of GXXX and found the superscript work for GXXX. I hope ZWCad can patch this bug. Even though I can achieve the same effect using MText, but it is overkill and trouble some. Thank you.
