If I type

$\boldsymbol{\ddot\xi}^{\,n}$

I get

this

whereas on removing \boldsymbol and \, I get

this

How do I get the superscript to appear like this also with \boldsymbol?

You should load the bm package. Compare

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

$\boldsymbol{\ddot\xi}^{\,n}$

\end{document}

which gives

with

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,bm}

\begin{document}

$\boldsymbol{\ddot\xi}^{\,n}$

\end{document}

  • Doesn't OP ask, that only dots be bold? And I don't see (and also reproduce) differences between both pictures. – Zarko Jan 8 '16 at 16:34
  • Thanks, but this looks like incompatible with the "accents" package, and even after removing the accents package the file does not get compiled (typesetting gets stuck without any error). Of course your example works fine, but I cannot figure out what happens in my case... – Francesco Jan 8 '16 at 16:40
  • @Zarko Look at the position of superscript n. – egreg Jan 8 '16 at 16:44
  • @Francesco I'm afraid accents and bm don't go along. Do you really need accents? – egreg Jan 8 '16 at 16:44
  • Thanks; yes, as I said I removed accents but the file does not get compiled although I get no errors... – Francesco Jan 8 '16 at 16:47
