- Select the text you want to strikethrough
Right click -> Character... -> Character -> Tab: FontEffects -> Dropdown: Strikethroughand select your desired strikethrough value.

Character Style (e.g. named
StrikeThrough having the font effect defined into and assigning that character style to the selected text.
Styles -> Manage Styles--or–
- Select icon Character Styles (second icon beneath Styles)
Right Click -> Newon Default Style
- Select Tab
Organizerand provide a name for the new character style (e.g
- Select Tab
Font Effects -> Dropdown: Strikethroughand select your desired strikethrough value.
To apply: Select the text to be strikethrough and double click on the character style in the style manager.
Hope that helps.
