I was wondering if someone could help with what maybe a settings or tools question in Corel draw. I'm doing an award for first place in a chili cook off but when I type in ( first place numerically ) the 1st is as seen here , side by side. How can I make it so the ( st ) is smaller and at the top of the number 1. Hope this makes sense?

Go to the arrange tab, break text apart. Group the "st" together, grab corner handle and make as small as you like. While grouped together, nudge it up where you want it.

That works.
Option #2
Highlight the st in text mode
go to character formating / postion / make it super script

There are many ways to do the same thing.

Hi Tom,
It seems that there should be an easy way to make a superscript, but I couldn't find it.
To make the st smaller select the text you want to alter and change the font size.
To shift it up select the text and in the menu at the top click on TEXT then FORMAT TEXT.

Just to add to what Paul said, it's under Character Formatting docker, under the "Character Effects" section, then on the "Position" field, it will say "None". Click the drop down box, it'll show "None, Subscript, Superscript". Pick "Superscript" and it'll get you there.

Just make sure you have highlighted the "st" prior to doing all this, or it'll change all your selected text.
