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?

  • \$\begingroup\$ You don't need a subscript for R1, R2, D5, etc. They are normally written just as I did here. \$\endgroup\$ May 21 '14 at 13:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes. But it was better if I could write \$V_{DS}\$ instead of VDS \$\endgroup\$

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.

For my graduate work, it was recommended for people to use Microsoft Visio to recreate their circuits with nice formatting and the capability to do subscripts for labels. It's still clunky for that if I remember right, but at least it's possible there. Visio has a nice library of elements for circuit schematics. Obviously, you can't simulate a circuit from Visio...
