This is how i want it to look 

But here is what it looks like

    This is because of Textile markup. A "+" on both sides of a section of text indicates that it should be underlined. You can take care of this problem via custom CSS if you have it.

    @Kallak, does Obsidian Portal support the "notextile" tag?  If so, it should disable the textile processing for the line having issues

    I've encountered the same issue when writing out stat blocks. As such, I've gotten into the habit of adding == (2 equal signs) before and after the number with the plus. This apparently tells the programming to write the plus as text and don't interpret as an underline command.

    For example,

    Init: +4 Senses: Low-Light Vision, Perception +6

    ... would be written as...

    Init: ==+4== Senses: Low-Light Vision, Perception ==+6==

    Another option would be to include a space between the plus and the number, though this doesn't look as clean to me... Init: + 4 Senses: Low-Light Vision, Perception + 6

    Ah, good to know.  That (==) is the inline version of "notextile"

    In case anyone is wondering here is the CSS to turn it off campaign wide:


    /* + Sign Underline Functionality - Turns It Off */
    ins { color:inherit; text-decoration:inherit;}
    ins:before { content:'+';}
    ins:after { content:'+';}

    Thanks Abersade for this CSS. Not that I use underline on my campaign sites (prefer italicize), would I still be able to use underlining in another manner if I use this code?

    Yeah you can. This literally only affects the + textile shorthand. So you can still use straight html commands or style structure to underline things.
