text question and oddities

first:

is there a way to insert superscript characters in a note? The special character palette doesn't seem to have any.

second:

we export the drawings into autocad (using autocad LT/2009).

in some bills, the text is shortened and stacked, with the stacked portion appearing over the item below it. this behavior is random. sometimes long text is modified, sometimes short text is. only appears when the export is done, not on the original creo drawing. the text appears as Mtext in Autocad. creo is set to dwg_export_format is 14,intf2d_out_stroke_text is none,

this only happens when the drawing is exported to autocad. no issues when exported to pdf.

@+ is the superscript introducer. @- for subscript and @# to end the super/subscript.

Re: text question and oddities

that's what I love about this silly software - it's like an Easter Egg hunt every day! Or is this documented someplace?

Thanks David!

Re: text question and oddities

It used to be documented more clearly. Now we have this:

On the left side of the above page, you can do a lot of scrolling to find the page entry and you may note that there are other interesting things about text, as well scattered as is possible to scatter them, with no overall quick-reference that links to them. In the 'old' days they had a book of contiguous pages, so if you wanted to know about notes you needed only to find one of the pages and the others were nearby, available to read as fast as you could.
