Have you ever noticed that underline and text justify button are no longer with WordPress 4.7?  These two buttons were removed from the updated version of WordPress (i.e. 4.7).

Underline Issue In Worpress 4.7

In WordPress 4.7, the developer team decided to make various changes and introduced various features to the WordPress site. One of the changes that they made is removed the underline option from the editor. So it is very difficult to the user to use underline and text justify feature in their post.

If you want to re-add both text underline and text justify button to your editor, you can simply use this light-weight plugin. This plugin re-adds the Editor Text underline; text justifies buttons as they were before WordPress 4.7 version.

Why this Re-add Text Underline and Justify Plugin Used:

The text underline and text justify buttons have been removed from the bottom row of the editor because Underlining is a bad practice as readers can confuse it with links (bad accessibility), and it does not insert a semantic element. Justify button was removed because it has uneven browser implementation, and in many cases is bad for readability.
