In Windows 10x64 Home and LibreOffice there are
buttonsavailablefor superscript and subscript characters within the
Writer module.  Can thesebutton functions (somehow) be madeavailable
from within the Calc module?

Best wishes for a healthy, prosperous 2021 New Year.


Hi Vince,

Returning your kind wishes back to yourself.

Ready-made buttons in Calc = No.

However, for an extra couple of mouse finger twitches, you can
select/highlight part of the TEXT entry in a cell and use the Calc menu
"Format -> Text -> Superscript" or Keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Shift+P".

Remember that the cell is formatted as text and cannot be readily used
in a calculation.


TNX Dave. I'll keep the Calc Format > Text > Superscript method that you have outlined in my mind.

I have been finding formulae at various math tutorial websites and pasting them into a Calc file, typically by first washing the text string through Notepad and/or LibreOffice Writer.  When I stumbled across Writer's convenient superscript button, I thought that it would be great if Calc could have those buttons available.  My goal, in part, is to model a formula of interest within Calc, e.g., a^2 = b^2 + c^2 - 2bc Cos A; this is one way that allows me to learn how to manipulate Calc's functions. So, I used Writer's superscript button and then pasting the formula into my Calc file, as a text string, of course.
