You probably don't want to lose one-step subscripts, but to change their behaviour. If you want lower them, you can change TeX parameters as in the following example (the exact values are to be chosen):




a_b \mbox{ 3pt}


a_b \mbox{ 5pt}


enter image description here

If you also want to change the size of subscripts, you should be more precise: which TeX dialect (e.g., plain or LaTeX) are you interested in?
