I have a question regarding upper and lower indices.

If I write something like

$A = \hat{\tau}^1_2$

the upper and lower indices are postponed in such a way that the lower index is a bit more left compared to the upper index.

But I want them to be among themselves.

Is that somehow possible?

    That's the commonest practice, in order not to leave holes. – egreg Jun 3 at 17:40

workaround: insert empty {}



$A = \hat{\tau}{}^1_2$
