Description meiklehmann 2018-05-11 11:11:02 UTC
Please see the steps below.

Steps to Reproduce:
Please open the attached sample Writer file. It has an embedded Calc OLE object where in a number cell the font effect double underline has been set.

Editing the Calc document inline shows the double underlined number, but closing it or creating a PDF file will not show the double underline any more.

Actual Results:  
no double underlined number is shown

Expected Results:
the number should be shown double-underline

Reproducible: Always

Comment 6 Bartosz 2018-10-29 23:31:53 UTC
The EMF+ format is not supporting double-underline. 

You could set it single-underline:
  FontStyleUnderline If set, the font typeface MUST be rendered with a line underneath the baseline of the characters.
  If clear, the font typeface MUST be rendered without a line underneath the baseline.
