    Still can't underline in static text?

    nicklausdeyring
      Hey Adobe,

      I'm glad you've buried the hatchet in/with Macromedia, you were my two favorite software companies and now I only have to buy tons of swag from one. No I mean that, the fact that you ran out of those killer bags is pretty annoying.

      Still, there is one thing that holds be back from loving you with %1,000,000 of my being. In Flash, with static text, you can't select 'underline'. Yes yes yes, I know you can do so with dynamic text, but I dont always use dynamic, now do I?

      So please, in order to win me over with your cleverly designed design software, I need you to add that function so when I get a call from my client to add 30 'Link underlines' to my flash document, I don't have to be grumpy. Make me ungrumpy? De-grumped and underlined?

      If you don't, of course I'll still love you %999,999 of the time.

            Hi,
            Are you refering to the static text properities in the properities panel , which only include only Bold and Italic?

              Good point, will do!

              Yes, I am referring to the lacking 'underline' option, which I'm sure is not included for a good reason, I'm really just voicing my frustration. ;)
