In Microsoft Word you can change text to be "Superscript" representative of the power number
Can this be done easily in Solidworks text editor?
You can cheat it with the fractional text. See attached.
That worked rather nicely.
Funny, I did a short presentation on just this topic a couple months ago for a user group. The fractional "stack" function can be used to cheat for superscript, subscript, tolerances, and approximation,

I never knew this was in the text attributes.
Personally I don't call it cheating when it accomplishes the task if that is all the software
provides. I did what I needed it to do.
It may not be cheating, but it definately falls under "Tricks" in the category of "Tips and Tricks".
I will give you that!!!
How can you do that in a smart dimension with text overriding your dimension?
For instance, if you changed a dimension display from 112mm to G².
Give this a try and enter the following into the smart dimension "dimension text" box:
G<STACK size=0.6 divider=no>2<OVER></STACK>
If you make a note with stacked text in it, you can right click it and choose "edit text in window" and you will see the code I posted.
