How To Type Exponents On Mac

When typing numbers with a Mac, you may sometimes have to add exponents to the numbers. In typing, these are known as Superscript characters. Apple includes a keyboard shortcut to use those characters. This avoids the hassle of having to go to Special Characters and select each number manually. 

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Move the cursor to where you want the exponent to appear.
  • Hold down the Command ⌘ + Shift key.
  • Write your exponent. It will appear raised in the correct position.
  • Repeat the key combination to return to normal format.

Here are the other option to add Subscript in Google Docs.

Insert Tab
  • Select the element for subscript.
  • Go to the Insert.
  • Select the Special Character from drop down menu.

  • Type Subscript and Superscript in search bar to see the available characters of particular type. To use the character, just click on it and it will be added in the document.


Format Tab

  • Do the same process as above mentioned for selection of the element.
  • Go to Format 
  • Select the Text form drop down menu.
  • Click on Superscript.
