When I hit the arrow at the top right corner of character menu, I cannot see any underline options menu. I am using CS6. Any help?

Howdy João,

From the flyout menu of the Character panel, you should see (depending on what language settings you have) some version of:
Change Text Orientation
Standard Vertical Roman Alignment
----
Open Type >
Faux Bold
Faux Italic
All Caps
Small Caps
Superscript
Subscript
------
Underline
Strikethrough
----
etc

If this isn't what you're seeing, please let me know and I'll follow up with you!

Thanks,
David

First of all, thank you for the quick reply.
Yes, I can see that option. However, it does not present any chance to change the thickness of the underline. Just the possibility to underline or not. In past threads, people stated that an underline option menu was able to do just that.

Howdy João,

Sure thing; we aim to please. I'm just about to be done for the week though...8-)

As for controlling the thickness of an underline, that's not a feature found in Photoshop. You can control the thickness (and density and corners and caps) of a stroke if you're creating a shape, such as using the Shape tool (U) or Pen tool (P), but with regard to text, I'm afraid that there is no parallel. I'm pretty sure most of those dynamics are actually controlled by the font itself.

Have a nice weekend,
David
