Key Combinations for 2-D Math Notation
In parameter values, parameter names, and annotations, you can enter text in 2-D math notation, which is a formatting option that allows you to add mathematical elements such as subscripts, superscripts, and Greek characters. This option also provides a symbol completion feature, which automatically suggests mathematical symbols to insert as you enter a phrase in 2-D math notation.
To enter 2-D math notation in a text annotation, select Math (
) in the text formatting toolbar.
To move the cursor out of a denominator, superscript, or subscript position:
Press the right arrow key.
The following table lists the key combinations for 2-D math notation:
Symbol completion (parameter values and annotations only)
1. Enter the first few characters of a symbol name.
2. Use one of the following platform-specific key combinations:
Esc, Mac, Windows, and Linux
Ctrl + Shift + Space, Linux
3. From the pop-up menu, select the symbol or command that you want to insert.

Enter a pre-subscript
Ctrl (or Command) + Shift + _
Enter a Greek character
Use one of the following methods:
Enter the first few characters of a Greek character name (for example, "phi"), and use your platform-specific key combination for symbol completion.
Press Ctrl (or Command) + Shift + G and then enter a Greek character according to key mappings. For more information, see Key Mappings for Greek Characters.
