# Use subscripts in labels in schematic added from Circuitlab

I need the components in my circuits to be labelled using sub-scripts like $R_1,\ R_2,\ Z_{in}, V_{DS},$ etc., Is there any way to do so?

• You don't need a subscript for R1, R2, D5, etc. They are normally written just as I did here. May 21 '14 at 13:02
• Yes. But it was better if I could write $V_{DS}$ instead of VDS May 21 '14 at 13:05
• Using subscripts is pretty academic. Any schematics drawn by a real engineer for a real circuit will do what Olin of W5VO suggested. Jun 7 '14 at 14:21

I'm unaware of really any EDA tool that allows you to use subscripts. A common workaround is to use underscores to imply a subscript, such as V_DS or Z_IN.
• Thanks for the info. I usually exported the image as svg from circuitlab and then edited it to add subscripts to the labels. So I just wanted to know that something like that is possible here. May 21 '14 at 13:11
• The latex package circuitikz is also a good alternative.. Jun 7 '14 at 4:12
