ScriptBaselineShifts

  • ScriptBaselineShifts is an option for StyleBox which specifies the minimum distance in x-heights to shift subscripts and superscripts.
  • The setting ScriptBaselineShifts-> sub , sup uses shift sub for subscripts and sup for superscripts.
  • A typical setting is ScriptBaselineShifts->{0.6, 0.9}.
  • The default setting ScriptBaselineShifts-> Automatic, Automatic shifts subscripts and superscripts by a distance which depends on their height.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.11.
