Description riaweacl 2019-08-20 12:55:59 UTC
I want to use 2 kinds of Strikethroughs at the same time on the same words.

for example / and -

(by the way: I would also appreciate a few new kinds of strikethroughs.) (like wave or something) (double-wave...) (bold /) ...

And I would also greatly appreciate it, if the strikethrough could be in another color than the text color.

Regina, am I correct that these options are available in the format?

style:text-line-through-mode (dash, dash-dot..., solid, wave)

If so, we have to create a UI to configure the options. Could be a dialog that opens per hamburger menu at the dropdown or per entry "Special".

@riaweacl, can you please explain your use case in what situation those fancy striketroughs are needed.
Comment 2 riaweacl 2019-08-21 10:20:11 UTC
if I need a lot of tries before I find the best combination of something (and document it (at least temporarely))

stardust could also be a style

(and the idea of two strikethroughs at the same time originated from limits of other possibilities) (and it can be useful if only black and white are available somewhere (printing, copying))

(the 2-type-strikethrough can also be used as marker of the origin)

Coming back to this, sorry for the delay. Strike-through properties are set per Character: Properties > Font Effects. And you pick one of the options single/double line, slash, cross etc. The strike-through command sets this value to single as a direct formatting. You can always change this attribute but the better approach is to define a character style (actually two in your case= and apply this to the selection. Meaning, it works out of the box => WF.
