I'm looking for a practical way to achieve pretty underlining (interrupted at descenders) in InDesign or Illustrator.
I've tried to fake it by applying a white stroke to the text, but the way that cuts into the underline is too ugly to use. Because I'm trying to use it for large text with a thick underline that's also round-capped.
Simply removing the underline does interrupt nicely around letter like g, but leaves too much of a gap for p
If this can be achieved at all, it's got to be something only one of you wizards could think up.
It really needs to be an InDesign & Illustrator feature though (here's the link to Adobe's wishform).
Like March 2018: Wow not only did it get support, it's now the default in Chrome/Chromium.
text-decoration-skip: ink; from CSS3 needs browser support.
