Underline Text for Inkscape

The newer versions of inkscape (>=.91) support displaying underlined text, but lack any buttons or key bindings. This extension adds a menu option under Extensions/Text/Underline Text and a keybinding (Shift-u) that underlines selected text objects.

Installation

If you haven't changed inkscape's keybindings

git clone https://github.com/mcjohnalds/inkscape-underlinetext.git
mv inkscape-underlinetext/* ~/.config/inkscape
rm -rf inkscape-underlinetext

If you have changed inkscape's keybindings

git clone https://github.com/mcjohnalds/inkscape-underlinetext.git
mv inkscape-underlinetext/extensions ~/.config/inkscape
rm -rf inkscape-underlinetext

Then manually add the following lines to your ~/.config/inkscape/keys/default.xml:

<bind key="u" modifiers="Shift" action="mcjohnalds.underlinetext" display="true"/>
<bind key="U" modifiers="Shift" action="mcjohnalds.underlinetext"/>

Uninstallation

If you haven't changed inkscape's keybindings

rm ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/underlinetext.* ~/.config/inkscape/keys/default.xml

If you have changed inkscape's keybindings

rm ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/underlinetext.*

Then manually delete the following lines from you ~/.config/inkscape/keys/default.xml:

<bind key="u" modifiers="Shift" action="mcjohnalds.underlinetext" display="true"/>
<bind key="U" modifiers="Shift" action="mcjohnalds.underlinetext"/>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
