Text underline improvements: line weight, offset, variable color
Thanks for adding underline text to the latest release of XD. I really appreciate the fact that you're still adding features like this. I've had a bit of a play with the underline text tool and have a few refinements that would make it more powerful.
1) Allow for custom line weight. Currently the line is just the same weight, no matter the font weight
2) Allow for custom offset to baseline
3) Allow for variable colour.
See my mockup attached for further clarification.

Now there is an implementation of underlining, but this is not enough, I would like to have a flexible setting of the line itself, for example, transparency, thickness and indentation of the line itself.
The current underline color defaults to the text's, let us change its properties please!
3. margin from text

I would like this option as well. As this would be solved using "border" in CSS, it would be great if the valid CSS border properties would be available, i.e, style, width, color, etc
Text underline styling isn't possible via CSS so there's no reason to make it possible in XD. Designers would create things that coulnd't be achieved in the development process.

I came to the xd feature request site to add just this.
adobe, please do this thanks :)
I'd say that custom offset is a must-have now.

Yes to all of the above.
