I was recently asked if it is possible to just underline the Revit schedule column titles without having all the lines/boxes below. At first I thought it was not possible, so I figured out a crazy workaround. As I was checking the workflow for documenting it on this blog I discovered something I didn’t know (or at least had forgotten but once knew), which made the solution quite easy.
