Superscript and subscript support in rich text editor / CMS

Superscript is just a very common thing editors would expect to have access to when using the right text editor. Please add this basic functionality.

    It's disappointing to see that this wishlist item has not even been reviewed.

    I have a client that requires references in their content. All of their articles feature superscript references.

    I'm going to look into a solution for this.

    If anyone is still after this please let me know reach out and I'll let you know what I come up with.

    I've got an unhappy client (a law firm) with over 500 blog posts, many of which have footnotes. I appreciate that Webflow don't want a huge toolbar with every conceivable tag option but if we're pasting in (relatively) clean HTML (e.g. from Google docs) why strip it out?

    This feature is sorely needed. I have clients in the science industries who require superscript characters in almost all body copy.

    Oh, my bad, this has actually happened 4 weeks ago.

    4 year anniversary to this "wish" is coming in 2 weeks.

    This feature is extremely expected by anyone working in chemical and pharmaceutical sectors (subscript for chemical formula are a nightmare to manage)

    BUMP! 4 years after this request, these easy formatting features are still needed. Please consider adding superscript, subscript, strikethrough etc. soon.

    I have science clients who desperately need the ability to subscript/superscript easiliy in the CMS. Big VOTE from me.

    Thanks @Muhammad Hamidullah Musa. It also works on windows with a character board.

    The agency I work for has many clients in the healthcare industry. Every design makes heavy use of superscript. The sad truth is Webflow would be an absolutely perfect tool for us, but this glaring oversight has been keeping us from using Webflow for 3+ years.

    I would be happy to volunteer the few hours it would take to implement this basic feature.

    Please can we have an ETA on this feature. MUCH needed for my client who has long lists on dates and events, that we need to display in a visually clear way whilst still being accessible.

    Any ETA on this?

    The work I do requires this on almost every site I do and not just for ® that can be superscript with some fonts but needed on any given character (e.g. 1, 2, ▼, †, ‡). It's not enough that I can set up a class to fake this because this is not possible via CMS/E-com text, be it standard 'plain text' field or 'rich text' field.

    We need this support either as a simple option on right-click after highlighting text within CMS plain text or rt field or allowing class definition within CMS plain text / rt fields. Ultimately, allowing to highlight any text, setting as a span and defining a class (via plain text field or rich text field) would be ideal because some circumstances I need a single plain text field within an e-com product page that contains standard text that contains superscripts and also within smaller text as a footnote that then contains the even smaller font superscript.

    espeically for sights with references in text this is a must, a legal requirement

    I found a workaround for superscript numbers by using the Edit > Emoji & Symbols function on Mac. Just type "superscript" in the search bar and you'll be displayed with the available symbols. Seems to be adaptable with other fonts.
