Is it possible to create subscripts in superscripts, e.g., “10a1”?
(The expression with LaTeX would be 10^{a_{1}}) enter image description here

  • Note that Inkscape (usually) comes with a TeX renderer.

A workaround is to use the vertical kerning. Select the letter, then press spacing and adjust the vertical kerning (negative values: shift up, positive values: shift down):
