Removing a line through a text

I put a line through a text using LibreOffice 5.1 and have used Format-Character-Font Effects-Strikethrough and it does not work. I have tried highlighting the text and not highlighting and the light is not removed. What else can I do?

What do you mean? The strike line does not disappear? You can’t strike through your text?

Edit your question (don’t use an answer because this is not a forum thread but one question and possibly several answer to same question). Comments simulate a thread.

Try this: Select the text. From the menu, choose Format>Delete Direct Formatting ....
Now tag the selected text with the attributes you want.
