I want to have an output like this

enter image description here

The closest I have come is with code ${A^{\leftarrow}}_(x, y, z + n)$ that gives me something like

enter image description here

where the subscript is way of the mark. Trying something like this $A^{\leftarrow}_(x, y, z + n)$ gives even a greater distortion like this

enter image description here.

I have tried using \displaystyle but not sure how to get the syntax correctly, to make it happen. Display style seems to work with things like limits or sums, and I am not sure how I could bend them to my needs. Any leads would be helpful.

Enclose the super/subscript in braces:



A^{\leftarrow}_{(x, y, z + n)}

  • Thanks I got the error. In trying to get it right amongst my many attempts I left out the {} out of the second (x, y, z + n) parameter, and just overlooked it. Should have done a better job, of catching my typo.
