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.

    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.

    My company name requires superscript. Knowledge2 does not read “Knowledge squared”.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been done already?

    Is it technically difficult? Perhaps someone from this community would be willing to help with this

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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'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.

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

    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.
