Text sizing for dates ect.

Hi, when setting out a job that includes a date I often want to put in the date as the 1st or 22nd ect. now some software reduces the size and position of the "st" "nd to the upper right corner of the date number, is there any way to to this in V-carve? because if there is I can't find it and it is a right fiddle to do as a separate line entry in smaller text. :evil:

Thanks for any help.

may not understand your question but you can convert the text to curves and select the "st" "nd" and set to what ever size you wish and position where you wish

VCarve has no superscript/subscript setting for fonts so DIY is the only way in the way Glenn describes.

Yes that's what I've been doing Glenn but it's a fiddle especially when wrapping round curves and then changing spacings to even things up.

Oh well at least I haven't been missing anything obvious then!
