Double Underline in Google Docs

Google Docs has no default option to double-underline the text. But you can use the equation box and drawing window to double-underline the selected text as it highlights in the document.

In this tutorial, we will look at the below two methods to double-underlining the text.

Double Underline using Equation Box

The first method to double-underline the text is using the Equation box. The following are the steps to do this.

  1. In Google Docs, go to Insert in the menu bar.
  2. Then, hover over the Equation from the drop-down list.
  3. In the equation box, type “\underline” and enter the spacebar on the keyboard.
  4. Again, you need to repeat the last step to generate the double underline in the box.
  5. Now, enter the text in the equation box, and you will see the text appears with double underlining.

Double Underline using the Drawing Tool

Another method to generate the double underline in Google Docs is to use the drawing tool.

  1. First, type the text you want to double underline, then place the cursor on the following line.
  2. After that, go to Insert, then Drawing, and select New.
  3. In the drawing window, click on the line icon in the menu and select the line option.
  4. Draw the horizontal line on the drawing board.
  5. Now, copy the line that you have made and paste it under the previous line.
  6. Once you finish this, click the Save and Close button to save the changes.
  7. Then, select the lines and choose Behind text from the menu bar to place the line behind the text.
  8. To adjust the size of the lines, click on the Image options, then Size and Rotation, and change the width of it.
  9. Next, click Position to select the Move with text or Fix position on the page to fix the line position.
  10. From Y-axis, adjust the space between the line and the text.
  11. In the end, the text with a double underline appears on Google Docs.
