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.

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

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.
