How to overline and underline text

Recommended Posts

If you're talking about the Text Tool, underlining is easy: just click on the Underline icon in the tool bar. There's also a Strike-Through, but no Overline. As far as I know,  overlining isn't something that's commonly done, but if you need it, you'll probably have to draw the line yourself with the Line/Curve tool. When drawing lines, you can hold down the Shift key to constrain the line to horizontal, vertical, or 45 degrees.

Hi Owen48 - welcome to the forum :)


Underlining of text is supported. Use the underlining icon in the toolbar when the text tool is active

To get overlining, add a new layer and use the Line/Curve tool to draw a straight line above the text (hint: use the Shift key to help keep the line horizontal). Move the layer to correctly align it.
