How to Superscript Text in PowerPoint 2010

In the past, when I was still at school, we take lots of test. While in Mathematics, we meet lots of superscript numbers, like “a2“ in some Math equations. Because these test papers are all printed from Microsoft Word files, I wonder how to type that in Word?

Now in my work I do a lot of PowerPoint stuff, and we also use such superscript in our documents. How to type that in PowerPoint then?

In fact format text as superscript is the same in Word, PowerPoint and Excel. So here I’d use PowerPoint 2010 as example to show how to make it.

How to format text as superscript in PowerPoint 2010


Method 1: As plain text

I know two methods to format text as superscript; the first one is as plain text. Open your PowerPoint 2010, type in “a” in the text box first.

On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the Dialog Box Launcher .

Method 2: As equation

If you have business with Math or Physics equations, you may be familiar with the Microsoft Equation Editor.
On Insert tab, in the Text group, click the Insert Object button.
