Write with sub-/superscript


Is it possible to write in sub-/superscript in the editor? I would like to write my fractions for latex such that the numerator a is superscript b and the denominator is subscript. In the order a/b.

How to convert regular text into superscript?

Atom is a plain-text editor that is designed for software development. It offers some additional formatting capabilities over plain text that are generally useful for syntax highlighting and other tweaks commonly used in software development. These are:

  • Colors
  • Bold and italics
  • Some support for ligatures

Beyond that, Atom doesn’t support any sort of rich text features like subscript or superscript.

There are packages that provide a rendered preview of a text document like the markdown-preview package does for Markdown files. You may want to see if any of these might work for you.
