I'm running Word 2010 on Windows 8, and as of a couple days ago, the Ctrl + Shift + + shortcut no longer does anything (whereas it used to apply superscript formatting). Oddly, Ctrl + = still makes subscripts.

No major system changes, to the best of my knowledge, and Ctrl + Shift + + still appears in Customize Ribbon > Customize Keyboard > Commands > Superscript.

This is driving me nuts - does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

Spontaneously resolved, much to my relief/puzzlement, so never mind! – user338333 Jun 25 '14 at 18:08
