When you're working with multiline text, the editor contains several tools that make it easy to change your formatting. When you're working with single line text, there is no fancy editor. Instead, you have to use the percent, percent toggles. In this lesson we're going to learn how to do some basic formatting of single line text using window shortcuts. On my screen I've a detail of a standard curb and gutter. The title of this detail was created using single line text. I would like to add an underline to this title. Now, if you're a veteran AutoCAD user, I'm sure you've used the percent, percent U toggle many times.
I'm here to tell you, you don't have to do that anymore. To underline this text, I'm going to double click to select it, then I will click and drag across the text I'd like to underline and I'll press Ctrl+U. If I press Ctrl+U again, I can turn the underline off. This is the same shortcut you would use in Microsoft Word. In case you're wondering, we can apply an overline to this text by pressing Ctrl+O. I'm going to turn the overline off and I will drag across all of this text and I'll press Ctrl+U to add an underline to everything. When I'm finished, I'll press Enter.
So when it comes to the percent, percent codes, you can find me let a couple of those go. When you're working with single line text there is no fancy editor. Instead, you have to use the percent, percent toggles.
