How to Strikethrough Single Line Text


Being a proponent of both Single and Multiline text (use the appropriate tool for the job) I was wondering if you have the Strikethrough option when editing single line text.  The answer is ‘Yes’, but let me show you how I found it.

The Logic

  1. By default, when editing single line text, a ‘frameless’ editor is displayed, but the right-click menu has no option for Strikethrough.
  2. If you use the Strikethrough on Mtext, then Explode it, you still have the Strikethrough characters.
  3. Set the variable DTEXTED to <1> for the legacy Edit Text dialog box for editing single line text.
  4. Double-click single line text with the Strikethrough characters, and you see your answer:  %%K
