    So, I like to take my chem notes in my laptop, but in textedit how do I get access to subscripts and stuff like that and would I be able to do sub-subscripts; ie (Na-here's a subscript-)then another subscript outside these parenthesis?

    Adding to that, you can create your own keyboard shortcuts in Preferences.

    Go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts

    Here is an example of the ones I made real quick. You may want to use different keys:

    To create the shortcut, you just need to press the combination of keys that you want to use for the shortcut (while you have that box selected). In my example, I used option+command+x and option+command+s.
