I’m trying to get a strikethrough that looks like a rectangular button, with black text and a 20% spot RGB gray around it. In the character style the text is overprint and the gray is not, but all I get is a gray rectangle. Ideas?
Use 20% black (CMYK) instead of RGB, and the create the same effect using Underline. Make sure you have cleared any Strikethrough definitions in your Character Style. Is this the effect you were trying to get? https://www.dropbox.com/s/yc0bitr76b6qd2q/overprint%20strikethrough.png?dl=0
Umm, it looked like things were sort of oddly shifted, so I put one here:
If you want the line to be behind the text, use Underline. Strikethrough is for lines that are in front of the text.
Underline is the solution. Thanks.
