Changing default subscript position?

Is there a way to change the default subscript position?

According to Format -> Character -> Position, the default is to lower the subscript by 33% of the line height. The problem is, with single line spacing, this causes additional line space to be added, ruining the flow of a paragraph. I have found that by changing the position of the subscript to 10% of the line height, the line spacing is preserved. I cannot however, find a way to make 10% the default for all subscripts, so every time I use a subscript, I am forced to change the position manually. There must be a default setting somewhere that I'm just not finding.

I looked in the style defintions, and could not find any settings for character position, so I am at a bit of a loss of where to look. This is in Impress, but I'm guessing it's common to the whole suite.
