What Is Strikethrough Text?

Strikethrough is when text is written with a horizontal line through its center. It makes it appear that the text has been crossed out, similar to how you would cross out a mistake or strike out a task from a written to-do list.

As an example, this is strikethrough text.

Strikethrough text is used for many things, including:

  • To edit text or show it is wrong - For example, an editor or tutor may use strikethrough text to show which words, phrases, or passages are incorrect or should be removed
  • To show something has been done - For example, using strikethrough to cross out a task on an online to-do list to imply it has been completed
