Description sled10guy 2007-05-03 20:23:41 UTC
NOTE: This bug was originally reported here -

Problem -
I believe I'm used to these toggling/rotating between super/normal & sub-script
in some suitably cunning way; ie 1/2 can be C-+ 1 C-- / C-- 2 C-+
back-to-normal. Prolly worth having a poke to see how other suites do this.

we should work out why this keybinding is different to people's notion of the
standard - and fix that.

Also - this function is not a 'make superscript' 'make subscript' feature - but
a more powerful rotation through a set of options eg.

State   Action    New-State
subscr  Ctrl+     normal
normal  Ctrl+     supers
supers  Ctrl-     normal

etc. [ at least, this is how I remember it being some decade ago - perhaps
things have changed (?) ]

Just to note this function does exist:
- Switch to subscript [ctrl+shft+b] (or cycle back to normal)
- Switch to superscript [ctrl+shft+p] (or cycle back to normal)
- Normal character position [ctrl+shft+space].
See Issue 62731 for some more info.

However, maybe Ctrl+ /Ctrl- better meets user expectations?...
