Hi,

 

I have discovered a problem using paragraph shading, that would be nice to find a solution for.

 

I have a text that needs to be shaded, and certain parts to be shaded AND underlined.

When I try to use the underline function, it seems that the shading comes on top of the underline on some of the text and below on other parts of the text.

 

I have tried several different solutions, and can with some luck make it appear, if I use different styles and go back to the original style and make soft and hard returns. But not a consistent solution!

 

Please help!

 

/May

Yes, i'm using paragraph styles for the background paragraph shading, and am manually adding the underline for selected lines. No characterstyles for this style.

 

I have discovered that if I make a soft return at the end of the underlined part it shows; if I make a hard return it disapears ...?

Use Paragraph Sading and Paragraph frame and use only the bottom border.

Sure 🙂

 

Below is the 2 paragraphs in 2 screenshots.

 

The only difference from the top to the bottom picture, is the hard return at the end of second paragraph in the bottom picture. Both paragraphs in the bottom picture have underlines just like the top picture ... ?

 

So I found a solution, but not the reason? :-s

I ran into the same problem today. I have a paragraph style for the text that needs a shading and a character style for text with a hyperlink. The underline disappeares when shading is used. This looks like a bug.
But I have been playing around with this for a while and I have found a workaround for this little issue. Instead of the underline I now use the strikethrough and I lowered the line to the position I want. I saved this in a character style.

Hope this helps you or others who ran into this bug.
