# Subscript problem

Nihat BOZ shared this question 2 years ago

Although in text preview window subscripts are seen in the graph window they are seen as written like A_1

Ok, it's because you use the 3d window. On this window, for the moment, you have subscripts only if you use the LaTeX mode.

What version of GeoGebra are you using? Could you please attach a .ggb file? Thanks!

The latest version I am using. The attached text is seen normal in the preview window that is subscripts are as they should be in text preview window. also latex is not selected.

Please, join such a ggb file with the problem inside at least what you get F3 about the text.

Ok the attached ggb file causes the problem

so I have learnt subscript does not work in 3d window as usually work. Thanks very much for your help.

in the file added I put three texts with subscript: A_1, A_10 and A_2

A_2 is defined as LaTex text and appears in the Algebra view with a subscript, the others show the line.

To define A_10 write A_{10}.

All three show perfectly as subript in the Graphic.

I think that the user's problem is related to a LaTeX string like

\text{A_1}

In this case the output is A_1, with the underscore: I guess it depends on the way LaTeX deals with plain text and math text in a \text environment.

As a workaround, I suggest selecting the subscript 1 from the Symbols drop down list in the Text dialog window.

Unfortunately, the available list doesn't contain subscript letters...

Unicode subscripts (just copy & paste)

1. ₀ ₁ ₂ ₃ ₄ ₅ ₆ ₇ ₈ ₉ ₊ ₋ ₌ ₍ ₎ ₐ ₑ ₒ ₓ ₔ ₕ ₖ ₗ ₘ ₙ ₚ ₛ ₜ

Also the subscript problem has been fixed in the 3D View in the new version

1

referring to the new version (I mean GG6); When typing a_1 in a text in the Graphic the 1 is shown as subscript, even without selecting LaTeX, which is very practical. But in the Spreadsheet it is not. There you have to rightclick on a text, selecting LaTeX and selecting the LaTeX formula subscript in it. It would be convenient that the automatic subscript would also work here again.

Sorry, we won't be able to fix that soon
