Typing Superscript (+) Plus sign in web flow designer


#1

Hi guys! This may be really dumb but i need a bit of guidance as to how to type the superscript + sign in the content.

just a wee bit lost here, sos smiley and many thanks!

Hey @monsterling.
I've noticed a few things since I started using webflow. Some fonts will superscript some things automatically (®, etc). Some fonts don't. One thing I did to get around this issue, since I can't seem to find a superscript control in the tools panel, is to wrap what I want superscripted in a span. You can do that by selecting the text and clicking the little brush icon next to the bold, underline, italicize, etc buttons above it. Once you do that, add a class ("sup", for example), then you could style it like this:

font-size: 0.6em;
line-height: 0;
position: relative;
top: -0.5em;

That gets things close enough for me. You would just make sure that your plus sign is inside of that span.

Cheers,
Anthony

Off topic but why would one need to superscript the + sign? Honest concern (:


#4

smile good question.
lol the product name has a superscript + sign in it… and it needs to be referred to in superscript in all instances.

we can hard code it but was wondering if there was really a simpler way to do so in web flow.

thanks altextreme smile i'll give it a shot and report back

Thanks, I was wondering. Today I learnt the word 'superscript' (:

I'm using @altextreme method. Always have a class named 'index' to superscript bits of text. Going to update it with his properties, haven't thought about using ems to make it relative to the font-size.

They should just add the feature. Simple. No brainer. Too many workarounds not efficient and productive.

Yes – superscript please. My client wants to add footnotes to their posts. What now?
