The last option allows you to apply a different underline style to each instance of the word. To do this, press the Ctrl+Alt+U or ⌘+Option+U keys together once to open the Underline dialog box.

An underlining is a portion of text in a document where the words are separated by a line. This text, for example, should be underlined. Text that is underlined is regularly utilized to bring attention to it. In a word processor, such as Microsoft Word, create underlined text. By doing this, you will notice that changes to the main body of the document will not affect the underlined text.
Underlining can be done with any number of lines, but it should not go beyond the point where it becomes distracting. If you want to emphasize a particular phrase or sentence, then using bolding or italics would be better choices than underlining.
How does underlining work? When you create underlined text, there is a small box on each side of the text frame. Click inside one of these boxes to add text to the underline. Type the amount of text you want to use for the underline and press the return key.
Use the underline tool to insert a underline into your documents when you need to draw attention to something particular. They can also be used to highlight text that you want to copy out of a document or paste into another location. Underlining does not change the original text, so it is useful for notes or reminders.
Steps Open your Microsoft Word document. Underline the text you wish to emphasize. Click the little arrow to the right of the U button. Choose the type of underlining you wish to use. Select the portion of text and click OK.
