Create a character style that applies the correct weight underline, then use Find/Change to find underlined text and apply the style.
thanks Peter -- I will try that. That would fix the underline weight issue.
Any ideas regarding the 2nd half of my problem? InDesign not letting me
apply an underline to any words that aren't already underlined?
Did you try to apply the created Character Style?
Hi - yes. the character style only works on words that are already underlined with the 2 pt rule. The character style doesn't work when applied to any words that don't already have the underline.
This is an rtf file that I exported from InDesign, the author made minor edits, and now I am importing back into InDesign (into a newly created file).
what to do?
Give us a screenshoot of the definition of your underline in the Character Style.
Make sure in the Character Style the "Underline" option is fully selected.
There's 3 states
off = no underline
On = underline
Ignore = only underline if there's already an underline
That was it! The Underline option checkbox had a line in it. I clicked on it to change it to a checkmark. Now it works!
Weird. Never had that happen before, and I've been using InDesign since the first version.
