How to Set Subscript Text on a Style

  1. From the Content Explorer, open the stylesheet that you want to modify.
  2. From the Medium drop-down in the Stylesheet Editor, make sure the proper medium is selected before you begin. In the Advanced view, you can open multiple mediums at once; you just need to look at the title at the top of the medium pane and make sure you are working in the correct one. If you are not using stylesheet mediums for your different outputs or if you want all mediums to have the same settings, just leave the medium set to default and continue.

    Mediums can be used if you want to use one group of settings for online output types and another group of settings for print-based output types. For example, you might use the default medium for your online outputs and the print medium for your print outputs. See Mediums and Media Queries.

    Please note that Flare remembers the last medium that you used when working in the stylesheet, so it may or may not be the one that you want to use the next time around.

  3. In the local toolbar, make sure the first button displays (which means that the Simplified view is currently shown in the editor). If the button displays instead, then click it.
  4. In the upper-left of the editor, make sure the drop-down field is set to .
  5. Select a style (e.g., character, heading, paragraph).
  6. In the local toolbar of the editor, click . The Properties dialog opens. Select the Font tab. Click the check box next to Subscript. In the Properties dialog, click OK.

  7. Click to save your work.
