Underlined is blue, can't figure out how to change that

Whenever I want to underline text, the underline is always blue. In the tutorial document the underline is black, so clearly I must have messed this up somehow. Does anyone know how to customize the color of the underline? Thanks

The underline colour can sometimes get jammed up. That’s a known quirk with the text engine we use. You can change the colour in the Font panel (just hit Cmd-T). From there, the left-most button along the top controls underscore attributes. Select “Color” from that, and choose black from the pop-up palette. Now close all of these palettes, go back to Scrivener and try setting something to underscored, is it black now?
