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

Usually the font size becomes smaller: e.g. enter image description here

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? – Rmano May 31 '19 at 13:58
  • Generically: I'm using a very verbose subscript and superscript. I'm afraid that it becomes unreadable if it shrinks. – Jens Wagemaker May 31 '19 at 14:04

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

\[ x^x x^{\displaystyle x} \]

enter image description here

  • Do you also know the command for the other styles? Other than \displaystyle? – Jens Wagemaker Jun 9 '19 at 15:25

    Yep... \scriptstyle and \scriptscriptstyle. – Rmano Jun 9 '19 at 19:32

If you want this behavior everywhere:



$a_{b_{c}}\quad x^{x^{x}}$
