Superscript Question

Are there any plans to add a "superscript" button to the tool bar - and is it possible to see what is superscripted in the editor instead of having to preview? Both of these features would be ultra helpful.

Hi Dover Downs -- Currently, the only way to see your superscripted text is in preview or in the inbox. I'll check in with our Product Team to see if they have plans to update the toolbar in this way. Thanks!

Hi again -- We're hoping to make some updates to the formatting toolbar later this year, and we'll definitely work to make this formatting step simpler! I've updated the status here to Under consideration so that we can track similar requests here.

I am having the worst time trying to make the trademark symbol superscript. In html, I enter <sup> before the symbol, but when I try to close the tag with </sup>, the html box won't let me. it highlights the next <span> in red and blocks me from making the change and won't save.

Well, I'll be darned! I didn't know about the Insert Special Character. I was using the keyboard shortcut for Registered Trademark (alt + 0174) and trying to make it a superscript all this time! That solved the issue very simply. Thanks much!

Hey Cynthia, 

Could you tell me which Trademark symbol it is you're looking to use?  Are you using the "Insert" and "Special Character" to access them?  That looks like this:



From there, you can choose the TM, R, or C symbols, that are actually already set up to be superscript.  They look like this:



However, if you're looking to create the superscripted TM on your own, you can add in the <sup> and the closing </sup> tags.  When I was checking it out in my account, I noticed that the HTML editor didn't show what was being typed until after I finished the last ">" of the closing tag, so I could see how that could be disconcerting.  

I would suggest perhaps putting in <sup> on both sides of the letters, then adding the " / " in afterwards.  That worked better for me.  

Let me know!
