    I looked up "strike through" and followed the Windows version but I can't make it work on my Macbook Pro, nor can I find it in the search feature. Is it available somehow under a different name? Thanks.

    Are you talking about strike through?

    Try Format>Font>Show Fonts for that option in most applications

    That's exactly what I'm looking for. After font I go to styles where it indicates I can choose and apply strike through but nothing happens And I can't find format.

    This is probably not your situation but it is for me since I do it every now and then. The text that is to show "strike through" has to be highlighted. Then select the format option.

    I highlight the word, and I can get to the strike through panel and with the options of Elect, Apply, and Done - but nothing puts a line through what I've highlighted. I can do it in Text/Edit but not in a reply in an online forum message.


    I downloaded Maverick the last time.

    For the forum message you have to use vBulletin markups
    [ strike ] text [ /strike ]
