fine positioning of characters in Word with VBA


In an older version of Word I had a VBA macro that could position individual characters up or down by a few pixels or points or something.  There was some method or value of the character where I could specify a line offset, and I could do it for each character individually. This setting would not affect surrounding characters or paragraph spacing or anything.

That was a while ago, and I'm trying to replicate it in Word 2013.  Anyone know how I can do that?

click on the dialog launcher in the Font group

choose the Advanced tab

there you will see Position.  You can choose Raised or Lowered and then set the number of points

I have attached a couple screen shots
