I frequently have brief comments in a Word document that include words that are possibly underlined, in italics, or in boldface. (See image 1, where one word is in italics and another word is underlined.) I wish to apply a predefined character style to the comment that will (a) change the font color and (b) apply a style to the comment such that I can hide or display all such comments by changing the “Hidden” status of the style.
Currently when I apply such a pre-defined character style to such a comment, a style pre-defined by me, it removes any underlining or italics in the comment. (See image 2, where the font color is changed, but the underlining and italics are removed.)
I would like to remove all font specifications in my pre-defined character style except for color or the “Hidden” status. Is that possible? I would be satisfied if I could simply not change any italics or underlining, but so far I have not succeeded.
Is there any hope?
