You can easily make text bold or italic in XD, but not underlined. There should be an Underline style or toggle button for creating designs with links, etc.
You can now underline text in the December release of Adobe XD. If you’re interested in improvements to the underline feature (like adjusting the distance between the underline and the baseline), please do feel free to file that as a separate ticket!
Improvements to the underline feature:
I really do not want to find out what else is missing.
I haven't read all the comments, so someone might have brought it up already. I'd like to see an option to define the vertical spacing between the text and the underline. My five cents...
WHERE THE FRICK IS THE UNDERLINE PROPERTY????
ARE WE DESIGNING FOR THE WEB B.L (BEFORE LINKS) OR A.L (AFTER LINKS)?
The Text Panel section needs more love.
• All Caps
• Units of Pixels and not just Points.
I HAVE GOT TO HAVE UNDERLINED TEXT AS WELL AS SUPER-SCRIPTED CHARACTERS.
I have a 20 page website templated out and have to revisit each page and do these things manually. I'm netting out at a loss for all the time that xd had saved me in building the comps.

The most annoying activity in this program is making all my own underlined links. Huge miss.
And you're selling this? This is very alpha to me. Most important features missing not only underline. Issue going for 1 year+. Company with so much money what a ***kin joke Adobe. I think you must fire a couple of lazy workers.
if a critical and simple such as this is not release before invision studio, say goodbye. which is next month
Are you guys serious
wtf adobe, how is this not available? joke of a software

Yep. There's no question this feature is a most-have. I don't think I even need to go into any detail here. This is a most-have standard. Funny thing is... this one missing feature is the worst thing about the program. It's actually very awesome otherwise.

Am I just missing this on the official release version or is it STILL not included?
I was just about to make the switch from Sketch, no underline was a dealbreaker. Simply unfathomable that a web design and proto program would launch without it. Back to Sketch :(

Any updates on this feature? When can we expect it? It's no fun manually positioning a line under text to make it look like a link...then having to manually re-position the line when I add text before the fake link. Ugh.
I can't believe this is not available from version 0
come on Adobe, this is the one thing that deems it almost unusable!
