How do make a text with broken underline

I've seen in a sample template for brochure a text with broken underline, I
was trying to find out how to do it. Maybe someone here knows how, I would be
very grateful.

Re: How do make a text with broken underline

Do you mean a "dotted" line -- or the line under the words only?

In Pub 2000 -- highlight the words you wanted underlined... then go to
FORMAT -- FONT and in the Underline drop box -- select either WORD ONLY or
the dotted options.

2000 Pub user here. Thanks for sharing and though I've never used it, a nice
to know function.

Re: How do make a text with broken underline

it's the dotted line under the words only... however, I noticed is that the
sample I saw is the color of the dotted line is different from the color of
the font or text. In MS Word document i can set a different color for the
underline and the text but in publisher I can't. Anyways, thanks for the
reply... if you find a solution for my question please let me know. Thank
you very much.

Re: How do make a text with broken underline

You can manually insert a line, make it dashed and give it any color. You might
have to apply no wrap.
