hello,

on my laptop (running kubuntu and openoffice 3.1), when i do x^2 or any other number, it automatically makes it squared, the letter gets smaller and placed above the x, like it's supposed to during formulas.
however, on my desktop (win7/openoffice 3.2), it just stays the same. i've found out that ctrl+shift+p works (superscript, i think?), but it doesn't do it automatically.
how can i make it so it works on my desktop as well? what is it that makes it work on my laptop?
i looked in autocorrect, and neither have it there.
i haven't installed any plugins that i know of, nor altered any settings.
thanks for this fantastic suite either way, many of my papers could not have been written without it.

nothing to do with OpenOffice (is my guess)
I think you have the international variant of your keyboard on your laptop and the default one on your desktop.
With a US keyboard set to alternative international you see the behavior you want, not only in OpenOffice but system wide.

after testing, i think you're probably right, it seems to work system wide on my laptop.
is there any way i can change the layout on win7 to that of alternative international?
i can't find it in the list when i search for layouts.

The same thing used to be us-intl or us-international - do you have anything like that?
If not just give some of the other variants of your keyboard layout a try and see that they do
The UK keyboard, for example, does not have a alternative international but only international with dead keys (not tried this, as no UK keyboard only US Sad ) and might get some unexpected (but sometimes useful) effects
