I’m trying to make a heading layout that indents and underlines the title. However, I don’t want the indentation to be underlined and I’m having problems preventing this. I’d appreciate any help.
In pseudocode, I’m trying to get
TAB <$aon> TAB my_title <\underline>
So the first tab is not underlined, but the title number, the title itself and the tab in between are underlined. I have to export to Word for Mac 16.13.
In my experiments, I set up the tabs and title numbering as a title prefix
so both the preceding tab and the in-between tab are created there. I’ve experimented with several approaches to controlling the formatting, but they all result in the same problem - I can’t keep the preceding tab from being underlined.
When I export to rtf and open in Textedit the preceding tab does not appear underlined, but unfortunately when I export directly to Word or open the rtf with Word, the preceding tab is underlined. I’m sorry to say that the consumers of my output require docx.
As a workaround, I can repair the problem in Word. I’d appreciate any help with this technical problem.
