I need some text in a subscript within a threeparttable. It seems like all possible ways to achieve subscript, do this by creating a math environment. Which I understand the threeparttable does not allow? Any suggestions? Thanx :-)

    Can you make a short example of the subscript you need to get? – egreg May 2 '16 at 8:13

I've been using sub- and superscripts within a threeparttable without any problems, using \textsubscript{"text"} A simple example is below.



alpha\textsubscript{a} & beta\textsubscript{b} & gamma\textsubscript{c} \\


It then gives this:

simple table with subscript

Fingers crossed that helps!

  • it didn't. BUT entering math mode did work! $_S$ (I just needed the S) Thank you for your time anyways! – Nora May 2 '16 at 8:59

    @Nora maybe your LaTeX is outdated. In earlier versions one needed to load the fixltx2e package for using \textsubscript. – cgnieder May 2 '16 at 10:09
