    Text variables


      Hello everybody,



      Is it possible to use a subscript or superscript in variable? (Such as  CO2 or H2O)



      I've tried everything but unfortunately I can not find a solution



      Thank you !!

          Can you be a little more specific? If the contents that the variable is grabbing contains a superscript, it should in fact pick up that formatting. Please explain.

            Chad: (taking my chances that this is a very recent addition!), no, the automatic variables do not pick up any formatting at all. Table of Contents preserve character styles, but text variables do not.


            Louis: if you're in luck, you are using a font that contains "real" superscript and subscript numbers. These do not rely on InDesign's formatting and so will appear as-is inside variables.

              Thank you for your answer ... Indeed, the variables do not work with styles ... I have try everything ...

              I thought that maybe there was another way


              Hence my question here on the forum


              Good day everyone!
