I've recently been writing a lot of documentation and would love to be able to type native superscript characters (⁰, ¹, ², ³, ⁴, ⁵) to call out caveats/annotations. The writing environment I'm in does not support markup such as
<sup> or LaTeX-like
^1 ^2 ^3 ^4 ^5.
My current solution for inserting these characters is to;
- Permanently enable the "input menu in menu bar" in Keyboard.prefPane -> Input Sources
- Mouse over to the input menu icon, click it, then 'Show Character Viewer'.
- Once the Character Viewer is shown, mouse to the character search box, and type either the number to superscript, or literally enter the word 'superscript' which will helpfully give me 0-9 that I can quickly use if necessary.
How can I shorten the time necessary to input these characters?
