Characters superscript or subscript / Zeichen hoch- oder tiefstellen


Recommended Posts

Hallo,

Version 1.9x

Trying to set superscripts or subscripts in a text and in a table character.
Unfortunately none of the functions in this tab respond ?

Do I have to set anything else to use the functions in the "Typography" tab ?
I mean in the 1.8x version I tested the functions with success.

Versuche in einem Text und in einer Tabelle Zeichen Hoch- oder Tiefstellen einzustellen.
Leider reagiert keine der Funktionen in diesem Reiter ?

Muss ich noch etwas einstellen um die Funktionen in dem Reiter "Typografie" nutzen zu können ?
Ich meine in der 1.8x Version habe ich die Funktionen getestet mit Erfolg.

Gruß!
Gonzo

With which font are you trying to achieve this? It depends on the font, whether super-/subscript is available or not if you want to use it from Typography. Using the Super/Subscript pulldown in the Character panel should? work with any font.

AFAIK there was no difference in functionality between 1.8 and 1.9

Meines Wissens ist in diesem Bereich nichts verändert worden. Es liegt einfach an der Schrift, ob das angeboten wird.

Many fonts have superscripts for 2 and 3 but very few have superscripts for 4 to 9. Helvetica has a full set of numerals; Arial does not.

You won’t find superscript or subscript versions of all the letters of the alphabet in Arial Regular. You might find a few punctuation marks.

Hallo,

thanks for the quick reply but I have now tried it with several fonts and it does not work.
With Helvetica, superscript and subscript are not activated for me to select.

As I know Arial is a standard font of Windows I can't imagine that the function is not supported in "AF".
where Arial has the superscript and subscript buttons enabled to select it.

I just tried it in InDesign, here it works fine even in PagePlus X9 it works it Arial 9 pt ? 

 

danke für die schnelle Antwort aber ich habe es jetzt mit mehreren Schriftarten ausprobiert und es funktioniert nicht.
Bei Helvetica werden Hoch- und Tiefstellung bei mir nicht aktiviert zur Auswahl.

Da Arial meines Wissens eine Standardschriftart von Windows ist kann ich mir nicht vorstellen das die Funktion in "AF"
nicht unterstützt wird wobei bei Arial die Button für Hoch- und Tiefstellung aktiviert sind um sie auszuwählen.

Ich habe es gerade in InDesign probiert, hier funktioniert es einwandfrei sogar in PagePlus X9 funktioniert es it Arial 9 pt ? 

Gruß!

In Affinity, the Superscript and Subscript settings in Typography require support from the font that you're using. When the font does not provide that support, you need to use the Superscript and Subscript settings in Positioning and Transform, rather than the settings in Typography:

Hallo,

yes this approach was already known to me, so of course you can set it.
I have tried several fonts under Windows + Mac but under the panel Typography 
no selection responds whether high or low.

Could you please tell me a font where this function works via the panel ?

ja diese Vorgehensweise war mir schon bekannt, so kann man das natürlich einstellen.
Ich habe mehrere Schriftarten unter Windows + Mac probiert aber unter dem Panel "Typografie" 
reagiert keine Auswahl ob hoch oder tief.

Könnten Sie mir bitte eine Schriftart nennen wo diese Funktion über das Panel funktioniert ?

danke, Gruß!

Arial, for one. But you must choose the right characters.

ok thanks, the letter "b" cannot be subscripted via the panel.
Then I have to go over the other panel.

ok danke, den Buchstaben "b" kann man nicht über das Panel tiefstellen.
Dann muß ich doch über das andere Panel gehen.

Gruß!

You should use the ‘Positioning and Transform’ section of the Character panel if the ‘Typography’ section doesn’t allow all of the subscripts that you need. The appearance of the characters created via those two sections is different, so it will not look good if you mix them.

interessantes Thema, habe ein wenig herumprobiert, kaum eine Schrift unterstützt "Subscript/Tiefstellen" und beim Hochstellen fehlen die Umlaute, scharfes S , Euro-zeichen usw.
anbei Demo mit "Source Sans/Serif Pro"; eine (kostenlose) Schrift die "alles" kann, habe ich noch nicht gefunden..
