Note that margins can be different in each section of a document if you have inserted section breaks. By default, a Google Docs file contains one section.
You can apply subscript to text, numbers or special characters in Google Docs using the menu or a keyboard shortcut. If you apply subscript, the selected letter, number or symbol will be lowered slightly below the line of text and sized to a smaller size.
