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.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this one. Literally every project we have in webflow has a ton of superscripts for product names or references. A built-in option would be splendid. Thanks!

    New to this game but needed it on project 1 :)

    Yes please!

    Would really like to see this. Seems like it should be a very quick thing to implement. Very frustrating to have to go into the code and update manually each time I export.

    This is definitely needed! Please! Without this, the CMS rich text editor has much less value.

    I would also love to see this! In the meantime, you can certainly use a Text Field and this type of tool:


    Or simply copy/paste super/subscript text.

    This is really essential for us as pretty much every project included superscript. Including the vertical-align css parameter would also be helpful for adjusting superscript positioning.

    I'm not able to vote for this, but I want to strongly add my voice to beg for this. I noticed that 4 years ago we were told this would be coming soon, but we still don't have it. I do sites with a lot of scientific content. This is crucial -- one of my sites, for example, has literally hundreds of instances of superscripted and subscripted text. It makes me seriously reconsider if I want to rebuild this site in Webflow, as I was planning to do.

    I can't stress this oversight enough.  These tiny, but necessary things, similar to the post for other HTML tags in another wishlist item (link below) are the reason I can't use Webflow hosting.  I can't simply push "publish" because I have a laundry list of tiny things like this to process before code can go live, and that means I need to host elsewhere since there's apparently no way to manually change code (I get it, that's part of Webflow's value proposition, that doesn't mean it provides a former hand-coder with any value)... so, yeah.  This was honestly something I never even thought to check before signing up a month ago because I thought it was in a "safe" category of, "Of course nobody would overlook this!"

    I forgot the link I promised.  Maybe Webflow could merge these requests?

    This would be a great addition, not just in Rich Text Fields but in any CMS text field since I often require a 'TM' or ® symbol in simple text boxes where brand names appear.

    Yes - I feel like this should be a basic function of a rich text editor.

    Very much needed please. I produce websites with technical classes that need subscript and superscript.

    Needed - a lot of my sites are to with property planning etc so they often refer to a square-footage measurement. I get asked that 'X' text should be superscript - I have to tell them the software wont let me!! Frustrating.
