# Make superscript lower for letter with tilde

Is there any way to have the t in my superscript further down?

$\widetilde{\boldsymbol{W}}^t$


is the code for the second W^t, and

$\boldsymbol{W}^t$


is the code for the first W^t in the screen-shot below.

I would like to have the t of both W's exactly at the same height.

• And I assume that the tilde should only span the W, as in egreg's answer, and not W^t – albert Apr 24 '18 at 10:47

It comes out right if you load bm; this is one of the reasons why ambsy has been deprecated and bm recommended instead.

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

\begin{document}

$\widetilde{\boldsymbol{W}}^t$

$\boldsymbol{W}^t$

\end{document}


You can also type the shorter \bm instead of \boldsymbol.
