tdf#80724 try to reuse calculated underline font as much as possible.
Underline was broken because for every portion it calculate a
new underline font based on the following portion so that the
portions do not have consistent underline fonts. And worse the
last portion is never be treated as part of continuous underline.
Comment 4 Mark Hung 2017-08-12 16:23:06 UTC
It's affected by the underline color 'auto'. A quick solution is to use specific color instead of the auto one.
