TITLE UNDERLINED
Posted by JOBO - 29 Dec 07:47AM
Dear Friends,

I would like in this title:

Pavana
Para Quarteto de Cordas
(Viola Solo)

To underline the word Pavana..Strangely enough in Text, I can see Bold, Italic..but no Underlined..

How to achieve this?

Many Thanks and..happy Year's ending!

Johan

The Underline property is available only in the Inspector.

Don't ask me why. All these text properties were in the Properties Window prior to Sib 7 and the moved most but not all migrated to the Text pane.

Yes, for some strange reason, underline wasn't included in Text/Format/Style in Sib7. In Sib8 it is found in the Text Properties of the Inspector (look for the row of T's). But in any case you only need to select the portion of text you need underlined and hit ctrl/u. Ctrl/b & ctrl/i also work for bold & italic.

In pre-computer days, when one sent a typescript to a publisher, underline was used because the typewriter had no italics. The printer translated underlined words into italics automatically.

So I'm suggesting: why not use italics if you can't get the underline?

Is the underline the one that runs between Baker Street and Waterloo?
