How to Underline Text in the Gutenberg Editor

In the Gutenberg block’s toolbar, you have Bold and Italic buttons, but not an Underline button.

I don’t know why, but the Underline button keeps getting underrated.

In WordPress 4.7, it was removed from the classic editor as well.

Fortunately, it hasn’t been completely forgotten… yet.

There’s still an easy, but not so obvious way for you to underline text in Gutenberg.

All you have to do is to select the text and click CTRL + U (on Windows) or CMD + U (on macOS) on your keyboard.

I think this works on the classic editor as well.

That’s it!

To find out more keyboard shortcuts for the Gutenberg editor, you just have to click the 3 vertical dots in the top-right corner, then select Keyboard Shortcuts.

Or, you can press Shift + Alt + H on your keyboard.

You’ll find a lot of them there.

That’s a wrap
