Hi Cor,

Can you make sure the superscript/subscript options are set properly 
in the Settings > Preferences > Typography, that is to a scale of 
below 100% (60% works generally well).

I just checked myself only to discover that even when set at 100% 
(which means the superscript will be at the same dimension of the 
regular font) the superscript shows smaller in the story editor. The 
resulting PDF shows a superscript set at the same scale as the font...

Please try that and see if it works. Otherwise, you could try with 
another font.
