I think you can create an attribute with a text style, so if your text style is underlined this should make the attrib underlined? I use the ATTDEF command.

Also not sure what you are doing with this. If you precede the attribute value with %%U it may force it to underline. I use this to make underlined pins in connectors.

I already tried ATTDEF, but there is no option to underline text. And when I create a new text style, there is also no option to underline text.

Ok, I thought there might have been an option in text styles to add underline. In that case I think your best bet is to add %%U before the attribute value (see img attached). I use this quite commonly and it works well.

Hopefully that's what you need.
