The shortcut keys for formatting text as superscript or subscript in PowerPoint are:
                Windows                  Macintosh
                -----------------        --------------------------
   Subscript:   CTRL+=                   COMMAND+=

   Superscript: CTRL+SHIFT+=             COMMAND+SHIFT+=
NOTE: These shortcut keys toggle the superscript and subscript formatting on and off.


These shortcut keys are not documented in the "Microsoft PowerPoint User's Guide" or PowerPoint Help utility. The keys are the same as those used in Microsoft Word.
