Have you had it working using prior releases?

If not, then perhaps the issue is simply that you're trying to use the Super- and Subscript options in the Typography part of the Character panel:

Those OpenType options work only for characters where the font supports the option.

For other characters that your font doesn't support you need to use the options in the Positioning and Transform part of the Character panel, which produce a kind of faux Super- or Subscript.

Thanks, That is exactly what happened.

Not sure why you would have the Typography buttons when I tried other fonts none of the ones I have loaded work with them.

In theory, a font designer could make a font with OpenType features where the # character had support for super- and subscripts. And perhaps some fonts do have that support. But yours don't, apparently.

Most fonts I have seen support only a few characters for those functions, the common superscripts like 1, 2, 3, and a few symbols like * that are commonly used. And a similar set for common subscripts.
