Description Unknown 2002-12-23 13:20:55 UTC
I'm trying to use something like {{a sup 2} sup 2} sup 2 in formula editor All
supscripts appear on the same level. In my understanding they should rise
according to level. The same applies to subscripts as well. I also can see this
behaviour on Windows PC.

TL: Need to think about this. Especially considereing already 
existing versions with different behaviour.
If it gets fixed it is likely that there will be an UI change also 
(an additional option). -> OOo 2.0

Set to enhancement since this would be new.

Comment 4 thomas.lange 2003-02-12 10:36:23 UTC
If we like to have this there will probably a new UI option 
introduced  which allows the user to select between the old and new

TL->BH: To you for decision.

Easier use of supscript and subscript. Currently that works with
adding the text left and right within the brackets.
Comment 7 gpolitis 2005-07-08 02:37:29 UTC
Currently using version 1.0.4 and it works correctly.

(x sup 2) sup 3 displays as (x squared) cubed, with the "2" and "3" at the same
level. This is behavious I would expect.

x sup {2 sup 3} displays x to the power of two cubed, with the 3 a superscript
relative to the 2, and two cubed as a whole a superscript of x. Again this is
the behaviour I would expect.

I would not recommend changing anything in this regard. IMO the spacing is
pretty horrible, but the general behaviour is correct.

Oops sorry, I'm using 1.1.0, not 1.0.4 as I said above.
