# Problem with parentheses and ScriptBaselineShifts

Style[
DisplayForm@RowBox[{"(", SubsuperscriptBox[2, 6, 7], ")"}],
18, Bold, ScriptSizeMultipliers -> 1, ScriptBaselineShifts -> {1, 3}]


or for ScriptBaselineShifts -> {4, 1}

This is at least undesired effect. I'd like to cut those parentheses just below 6. Why ScriptBaselineShifts affects both limits equally? Is there a walkaround?

Hm.. Maybe try an AdjustmentBox? I have to go now! – Jacob Akkerboom Apr 3 '14 at 16:10

The default rule for spanning characters is to span symmetrically above and below the central axis of the whole expression, so in your example 2 is put at the center. To shrink the parentheses asymmetrically, option SpanSymmetric needs to be set to False:
