Increase distance between text and underline

Post by deke » Fri Dec 21, 2018 9:33 pm

I have searched the forum unsuccessfully for a way to increase the distance between text and its underline. Presently when underlining lower case characters the line is so close it obliterates the descenders of the font.
Is there a way to increase the space?
Thanks,
Derek

There is no way to manually increase the space but it seems that TextMaker uses the same default spacing for all fonts. I will refer this issue to the developers.

I am surprised such a basic word processing feature hasn't been fixed yet.

I hate to be a pest but is there any timeline for a possible fix that is a standard feature of most word processing programs.

Hi, unfortunately it is still under analysis by the developers.
I'm sorry, but sometimes things that look simple have implications down the line.

I have also thought, for a very long time, that TM underlining was both insufficiently eye-catching, for something intended to make the selected words stand out,and, frankly, unattractive. I have always thought the underline bar too close to the line carrying the text, and too thin. I wish I had thought to mention it before, so I am glad that i has now been passed to the developers for some attention.
