    Hi Tim,

    Select your text and hit Shift-Ctrl-U to add an underline to it.

    OK that works!  But why does help say select underline on character properties but it's not on there???

    I also searched the help and could not find this shortcut....

    Hi Tim,

    When your text selected, look in the Character palette. There's a tiny arrow that points to the right; that opens a flyout meny. Faux text formatting options like Underline, Strikethrough and more are located there. These are options that are not part of the font itself, hence called faux.

    Good Vibes!
