hi to all,

 

i got a new job..... all day in front of computer using autocad LT 2000.... most of the time we input a value that has a superscript of sometimes subscript.... what's the easiest way to do this in autocad?

 

thanks a lot in advance!

In mtext, the "^" symbol stacks fractions without any lines -- so if you type "3^ " (note the space), you get a superscript of 3. Putting the space first makes a subscript. I don't think you can do this in single-line text, though (without actually having two pieces of text).

thanks but i can't get any of the subscript or superscript with that ^

 

if i type

 

daryl 3^

 

i would get the same... as i type in.... using mtext.... the same in single line text

 

is there another way?

 

thanks

 

sorry for the delay of my response.....

Sorry, looks like I forgot a step. Once you've typed in "3^ " in mtext, you have to highlight it, then click the "stack" button. (Or right click and select "stack.") Hope that works for you... :-)

As far as I know, there are just three types of stacks. From the help file:

Slash (/) stacks text vertically, separated by a horizontal line.

Pound sign (#) stacks text diagonally, separated by a diagonal line.

Carat (^) creates a tolerance stack, which is not separated by a line.

You can set the Autostack properties to control which options are used -- mine automatically turns "/" fractions into diagonal ones.

 

One more note: Versions below 2000i don't support diagonal fractions -- just vertical ones.

 

Glad it worked for you. :-)

Hi,

 

I am trying to write d2uw/dy2, this is the second derivative of of uw over y.

 

Now d2uw (2 is superscript and w is subscript) is straight forward (using ^ and staking option), Problem is I can't write d2uw / dy2 in a horizontal fraction format.

 

Anyone has an idea on how you can superscript, subscript and have it all in a horizontal fraction ?

 

Many thanks in advanced

HC202: Please do not double post. It just leads to confusion. See the thread you started. Thank you.
