In Word, you cannot apply underline character formatting to a line that contains only spaces. If you attempt to apply this type of formatting to a space character, the underline is not displayed or printed.

NOTE: In Microsoft Word 6.x for Windows or Macintosh, and Microsoft Word for Windows 95 version 7.x, empty form fields at the end of a line exhibit the same behavior as spaces. However, in Word 98 Macintosh Edition, this behavior does not occur.


There must be at least one character other than a space at the end of a line for underline formatting to appear. Similarly, underline character formatting does not appear on spaces following the last character on a line.


Use one of the following procedures to extend an underline past the end of text on a line:

  • Type at least one non-breaking space at the end of the line where you want the underline to stop. To type a non-breaking space, press CTRL+SHIFT+SPACEBAR.

  • Set a right-aligned tab stop at the position where you want the underline to stop. Apply underline formatting to the tab.

  • Set a right-aligned tab stop with a solid, underscore leader. To do this, click to select the Leader 4 option button in the Tabs dialog box (Format menu).
If you apply hidden and underline character formatting to text, the underline formatting appears on the screen but it is neither displayed in print preview nor printed.
