Everything I type into a text box has this underline below it. How do I get rid of it? I have 'underline on' unchecked but it's still there.

This rule can be made wth different options:

  1. Paragraph Rules above and below, fix it in Paragraph Styles.
  2. Underline, Strikethrough, fix it in Paragraph & Character Styles.
  3. Paragraph Frames: fix it in Paragraph Styles.

Did You Check, if a character style is used?

Hi Lyn:

 

When all new text uses a specific format, like underline, that normally means it was inadvertantly enabled as a new default. Choose Edit > Deselect All, then uncheck Underline in the Control Panel (or Properties Panel or Character Panel).  Try adding new text. Is it off now? 

 

Edit: that line is gray so it would need to be a custom underline. If this doesn't take care of it, check the paragraph style for Rule Below Paragraph. Maybe that is on a default instead.

You may have a paragraph style set as the default.

What happens when you change the screen mode to Preview? If the line disappears, then it is not an underline but a grid ruling.

Choose View>Grids & Guides>Hide Baseline Grid to turn these off. 

To make sure that text frames don't have a custom baseline grid by default, with no frame selected, choose Object>Text Frame Options>Baseline Options and deselect Use Custom Baseline Grid.

I had this with files we got from a company we market for, with their catalogs. The text boxes have underlining set with the actual text box widths. I had to hunt and found Paragraph Rules in the Paragraphs palette. No other way to get to it. Check that.Screenshot 2024-05-30 at 2.13.53 PM.png

Look also in Rules above, as you can make it also this way.
