Can You Do Superscript in Canva?

Last updated on February 4, 2024 @ 9:44 am

Yes, you can do superscript in Canva in 2024! and  it’s quite easy too..

To format your text as superscript in Canva, simply select the text you want to format and then click on the ‘Text’ dropdown menu at the top of the Canva editor.

From there, select the ‘Superscript‘ option. That’s it! Your text will now be in the superscript font.

However, if the ‘Superscript’ option is not available, there are still alternative ways to achieve such results. First, you can make use of the size hierarchy. Just like the example shown in the image below, you can use a heading text for your base and a subheading or a normal paragraph text to act as a superscript.

Simply adjust the text and place it on top of your base text:

The second alternative way is to use a third-party website or software such as Microsoft Word. Simply go to your MS Word document, type in your text with superscripts and copy and paste it to your Canva page.

Notice that there are small changes made when the text with superscripts is pasted into your Canva document. This is usually because Canva doesn’t currently fully support subscript or superscript formatting.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using superscript in Canva. First of all, superscript is typically used for small amounts of text, such as footnotes or citations.

PRO TIP: So Can You Do a Superscript in Canva?

Superscript is a type of text formatting that is typically used for footnotes, mathematical expressions, or scientific notations. While Canva does have a text editing tool, it does not currently support superscript formatting. This means that if you try to add superscript text to your design, it will not appear properly.

Secondly, superscript is usually set slightly above the rest of the text, so make sure there is enough space between your superscript text and the rest of the text on the page. Finally, remember that you can always change the font size of your superscript text if you need to make it stand out more (or less).

So there you have it! Now you know how to do superscript in Canva. Give it a try next time you’re creating a design and see how it can add an extra touch of professionalism (or fun!) to your work.
