AutoCAD Text Editing
If you are editing TEXT (not MTEXT), and the system variable TEXTED is set to 0 or 2, then you will be using the In-Place text editor. Although you can type in %%U to add underlining, there is no obvious way to remove it. I would guess most people would not even try the %%U since initially it shows up in the string while you are typing it in.
Anyway, you can use CTRL+U to toggle underlining (on selected text) in the In-Place Text Editor. Here is a partial? list of other In-Place Text Editor keyboard shortcuts.
- CTRL+F - Insert a Field
- CTRL+A - Select all text
- CTRL+V - Undo changes
- CTRL+O - Toggle Overscore on selected text
- CTRL+U - Toggle Underline on selected text
- CTRL+SHIFT+U - convert selected text to UPPER case
- CTRL+SHIFT+L - convert selected text to lower case
- CTRL+ENTER - finish editing
- CTRL+R - Find & Replace

If you prefer the older TEXT edit dialog, set TEXTED to 1.
