Dotted text underline



Is it possible to do dotted underline for text?



Hey Artyom,

I have two ideas how to do this:

1.) Take the Object Arrow, make it dotted and take the arrows left and right away, then place it under your text.

2.) Make a text with a single dot, or a single dash and copy paste it. There you can adjust the distance from one to another and make it even with the spacing.

Kind Regards


Hi @Artem_Trytiak,

As @ArcticMe mentioned (thanks for sharing), you can use several methods to do dotted underline.

Here is another one which might be the easiest to use:

  • add a “H.Rule” control and set it to dotted from the property inspector
  • then place it under you text control (and resize it if needed)

Here is the result:

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you need any further information.

Happy Wireframing! :smile:


Thank you for your response. I think it would be easier to add this as text decoration type
