# It possible to have subscript and super script that does not shrink the font size?

It possible to have subscript and super script that does not shrink the font size?

Usually the font size becomes smaller: e.g.

Is it possible to have the subscript and superscript in normal font size?

• Do you want that just for the one-off formula or generically, for any formula in your text? May 31, 2019 at 13:58
• Generically: I'm using a very verbose subscript and superscript. I'm afraid that it becomes unreadable if it shrinks. May 31, 2019 at 14:04

If it's just the one-off case, you can

$x^x x^{\displaystyle x}$


• Do you also know the command for the other styles? Other than \displaystyle? Jun 9, 2019 at 15:25
• Yep... \scriptstyle and \scriptscriptstyle. Jun 9, 2019 at 19:32

If you want this behavior everywhere:

\documentclass{article}

\DeclareMathSizes{10}{10}{10}{10}

\begin{document}
$a_{b_{c}}\quad x^{x^{x}}$
\end{document}
