Create a subscript keyboard shortcut on Mac

January 6, 2013 8:22:17 PM

Some Mac applications have shortcuts built in to input subscripts and superscripts, like iWork. Many do not, and I want to create a shortcut for my Macbook Pro that would do something similar to how its accent shortcuts work.

If you don't know, you can type Alt + e to get an underlined accent, and when you type a letter, it replaces the underlined accent with the letter and an accent. é Something like this would be perfect, but something lesser would be fine.

In the keyboard settings on a Mac, you can set keystrokes and input what character you want it to spit out. But I want to be able to subscript without having to do 10 different commands for the numbers 0-9.

This would be AMAZINGLY helpful.

Thanks so much.
