I am using the Wolfram Development Platform on Mac in Chrome.

I am attempting to write a formula in a plain text cell. I am following the instructions outlined here; i.e., Ctrl+9/Ctrl+0, and nothing is happening.

I have tried substituting Ctrl for Cmd which also doesn't work.

Is this a known issue?

Does anyone know a solution to this?

The Wolfram Cloud does not support two dimensional/linear syntax. That documentation page was exclusively meant for Mathematica/desktop products. Here is a list of keyboard shortcuts which are supported in the Wolfram Cloud: http://reference.wolfram.com/language/tutorial/KeyboardShortcutListingWolframCloud.html


To use maths formulas within text when using WolframCloud you should type ^4 (or Ctrl4 if not on Mac).
