I often create legal documents by using GNU Emacs Org Mode. And I would like to have something like ______________________ as an empty line for signature:

Authorized person: Mr. Joe Doe

Signature: _______________________

And I wish to export as PDF, naturally through LaTeX, as those are legal documents.

  • You might want to include a bit more detail. For example, what are you ultimately exporting your org file to? LaTeX? HTML? PDF? – db48x May 18 '17 at 9:58

Wrapping the underscore characters in tilde or equals signs seems to work:

Here's a test with tildes: ~_______~

And another test, with equals: =______=

You can also use raw LaTeX, e.g.,

Here's a test with a LaTeX macro: \rule{1cm}{0.5pt}
