Help with Microsoft Word (underlining)
July 16, 2007 10:11 PM   Subscribe

In WordPerfect you had the option when underlining, of underlining all words in a sentence including the spaces in between, or just the words. In Microsoft Word you don't seem to have that option. Is there any way in Word that you can underline a sentence, but have the underlines only appear under the letters and not the spaces? Thanks!

For Word 2003, highlight the text you want to underline, go to Format menu, then choose Font, then there is a dropdown box for Underline Style. Change this to "Words Only".

Yep, that works for Word 2004 for Mac, too.

Also, if memory serves me, you can highlight the sentence (with either the mouse, or Shift + Arrow Key), and then press Control + U (Ctrl + u).

CC, that will turn full underlining on and off, but will not toggle the style between full underline and words only (for my MSWord 2003).

Shift-Ctrl-W toggles word underline on and off.
