# how to apply superscripts/subscripts, margins, etc. [closed]

I believe my old Microsoft Suite was much easier to use and hence a lot faster to get the work done for a book; set up correctly is extremely important for the future publisher.

Familiar software is always easier to use than unfamiliar software. :) Having first used Word before moving to LibO writer, I understand the sense of sluggishness. On the other hand, now when I go back to Word (as I do fairly regularly), I find myself pining for Writer!

You don't elaborate the question in your title, so as a guess as to what you hope to learn:

• SuPerscript - Word's CTRL + SHIFT + = is done by CTRL + SHIFT + P in Writer (toggles)
• SuBscript - Word's CTRL + = is done by CTRL + SHIFT + B in Writer (toggles)
• Margins - from menu Format > Page > Page tab > Margins (as [almost] in an existing answer).

Aside from the Documentation already linked, there is also a full set of informative manuals on the Document Foundation wiki. Hope this helps, but if we have missed your main concern, do unpack your question a bit more.

This question will be quite useful for you I think: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questio...

"For sub/superscripts, they are found under the Format menu, Character, and the Position Tab. You can also customize the Formatting Tool Bar to add sub/superscripting quick buttons."

To change margins go: Format > Page > Margins. Or (even better), create a page style with the margins you want https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/C...
