    Underline in "Title" Style

    Does anyone know how to change the colour of the underline in the "Title" style in Word? I've tried changing it by right-click and Modify (the way I changed font and colour), but the setting doesn't hold.

    Edit the Style itself - you can define underline style and colour under the Font submenu

    This is the "Title" font, where the underline goes the full width of the page rather than just under the words. Looking at the options, it is added as a border on a paragraph. As I said, I've changed that, but it doesn't stick but font and colour does.

    Chaning the underline color of Title in a default template:
    You can either open this document for saving the changes:
    \Users\Your.Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templat es\Normal.dotm
    or just create a new document.
    Open a new document
    Right click on Title in the styles part of the Home ribbon.

    Select Modify in the right click drop-down menu

    Click Format button in left bottom of the "Modify style" window
    Select border in the drop down menu
    Change the color
    ******* Important hint - This is the trick****
    Also change the border style (This is why nobody can do the update )
    Seect overline and no underline for example!
    Click OK,
    Save the document and exit.
    Open a new docuent.
    and go back to the Modify Syle -> Border,
    And select the underline border.
    Save your document, remember to update your tempalate
    Open a new document
    Do the final changes. (I.e. set it back to black underline as outlined above)
    and redo saving

    Select radio button "New documents based on this template"
    before exiting Modify Style box
    Remmber to click update template on exiting document

    Thanks @oleviolin I have tried that, but it doesn't stick. When I go back to right-click > modify style, it has reverted to the blue. Any ideas?

    You are right Enjay (Thanks). My \Users\My.Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates \Normal.dotm (word 2010 template)
    did not upate, but addig an additional saving step of an overline instead of underline, did it.


    Exit the document, come back set it from black overline to black underline and you have black underline into your Normal.dotm
    (I tried it after your post enjay - and I have a black underline now!!!)
