Typed in a document using Underline Key to underline the first three words in a sentence but whole line automatically underlined. Now when I go back to the document and want to add more text above the line I find I cannot delete the line. If I press enter the underline duplicates itself down the page with each press of enter. How can I delete it?
First: you don’t underline text with the
_ character. instead select the text that you want to be underlined, then press
The line that you see is really a border, not a graphic. When you type —, === and a few more on a line with no other text and the Add border option in the Autocorrect options is turned on, LibreOffice will delete those characters and add a border at the bottom. This formatting sticks to that paragraph, and all paragraphs that you insert by pressing
Enter at the end of a paragraph with that formatting. Solution: select the offending paragraphs, open the
Format - Paragraph window, select the
Borders tab, click the line at the bottom in the box at the left to remove it, OK to exit. You may need to repeat this a few times.
If you have trouble remembering the Ctrl+U shortcut, just use Menu Format → Text → Underline.
Yes, this sorted my problem. Thank you for a very complete answer and explanation.
