ADD UNDERLINE OPTION TO ESSENTIAL GRAPHICS
Underlining text is one of the most basic tools and clients request this ALL THE TIME (I do video editing for research reports) – how is this still not an option????????
Underline is now available as a Faux Style for Text Layers in Premiere Pro CC 2020 (14.0). You can find it right next to the other Faux Styles in the Essential Graphics Panel.
Please add a way to underline text in the New Essential Graphics Panel
Are you talking about Essential Graphics?
One workaround for now would be to make a very thin rectangle under the text. Not the greatest.
The Legacy Titler tool should still have this option.
I agree that it would make sense to have Underline as a Faux Style like Photoshop and a lot of word processing apps do. So this is a good request, thank you.
As a workaround, consider using pinning to make a shape element which will respond to the text that it is pinned to. Here is Adobe's help article about that:
There are also some good third party tutorials for it in text and/or video form. Search ~ "premiere pro responsive design position". Once you set it up the first time, export it as MOGRT and use it over and over by just changing the text string(s).

100% agree. What a joke. This alone is going to get me to switch to Final Cut Pro.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to submit your feature request. Underline is not currently supported (your request is noted), but you can currently use the pen or rectangle tools to create a line under your text and can use the Responsive Design—Position feature to make the line scale with your text.
Enable text underlines. the fact this isnt available is absolutely despicable. Will not be renewing my cloud subscription if this isn't fixed soon. pathetic. you should be embarrassed that you think this is ok to release without that function
Flabbergasted. Me and my entire office cannot fathom as to why this was taken away.

It's also required for US political disclosures.

Self-explainatory and I feel embarrassed to even have to point this out.
