How can I change sus4 style in chord symbol?

As shown in the picture on the left, sus4 is present at the upper right of D.
However, as shown in the picture on the right, I would like to put sus under D and 4 in D superscript.

This is my chord symbols setting..

Close as I can come is to use edit chord symbols from the Text tab. I was able to come up with "C4" where the 4 was smaller and raised. I suppose you could create your own set of symbols and import them into Sibelius.

Do you mean create my new symbols in Edit Chord Symbols of Text tab?
But I can't find any way to make smaller and raise 4.

The same way you can import other fonts into Sibelius, I think you could create a set of chord symbols and import them into House Styles.

Or...

I think it so weird..
Because the default chord symbol style follow "Chords (standard)" and "Chords (standard)" style express sus4 that what I want to express.
But in the music score, the style looks like doesn't follow "Chords (standard)".. what's wrong with sibelius..
