how do I add subscripts and superscripts to a textblock and variable

Hello Mathcad Prime 2.0 Users,

How do I enter the following in a textblock and variable using subscripts and superscripts?

f_{c}^{'}

The subscript style is greyed out and I don't see an option to add a superscript and once I enter a subscript I cannot enter prime (single quote) to the variable.

Can Mathcad accept formulas from Microsoft Word Equation Editor?

thanks,

Jeff Jensen

I also did a Mathcad help search on "chemistry notation" but no results

Re: how do I add subscripts and superscripts to a textblock and variable

Prime 2.0 is not able to have sub/super scripts in text yet [sad emoticon].

For variables, in help, look up the prime function. I don't believe it will help all your requirements though. The prime function: cntrl + ' will take the derivative, but it will not work as a variable defintion.

I've never attempted MS equation editor...
