In printing, strike-through is the process of printing a second time over an area that has already been printed, usually to correct a mistake.

When strike-through is used to correct a mistake, it is important to make sure that the second printing is aligned with the first so that the mistake is completely covered. Otherwise, the mistake will still be visible.

Strike-through can also be used for decorative purposes, such as when printing a design that includes a background pattern. In this case, the strike-through printing creates a second layer of the pattern, making it more pronounced.

When a line is struck through it means that the line is no longer relevant and should not be included in the final print. This is often used when editing a document, and the editor wants to show which lines have been removed.

There are two ways to create a strike-through effect in Microsoft Word. The first is to use the Font dialog box. Select the text you want to strikethrough, and then click the Font button on the Home tab. In the Font dialog box, click the Effects tab, and then select the Strikethrough check box. Click OK to close the Font dialog box.

The second way to create a strike-through effect is to use the Format Painter. Select the text you want to strikethrough, and then click the Format Painter button on the Home tab. Click the text where you want to apply the formatting. The strike-through effect will be applied to the selected text.

While strike-through may seem like a simple printing technique, it actually plays an important role in the printing process. By striking through the paper, the printer is able to create a clean, sharp image that is free of any smudging or smearing. This technique is especially important when printing on glossy or coated papers, as it ensures that the image will not be marred by any imperfections.
