I have question please about writing under arrows

I know $\overleftarrow{A}$ draw a directed arrow to the left, similarly $\overrightarrow{A}$ draws a directed arrow to the right, but I can't find a command like $\overarrow{A}$ to draw left-right arrow.

Anyone can help me in this!

Without any extra package: $\stackrel{A}{\leftrightarrow}$

With amsmath: $\underleftrightarrow{A}$

Do you mean this?

\documentclass[12pt, letterpaper]{article}

This is for test $\xleftrightarrow{A}$

  • $\xleftrightarrow[B]{}$ ...

There is also a useless package called halloweenmath to write underleftright arrow. Here there is a table where you can see that the lenght of the arrow is the same of the character.

enter image description here


Your desidered code: $\underscriptleftrightarrow{A}$.

$\overscriptleftarrow{A}$      & $\underscriptleftarrow{A}$      \\ \midrule
$\overscriptleftrightarrow{A}$ & $\underscriptleftrightarrow{A}$ \\ \midrule
$\overscriptrightarrow{A}$     & $\underscriptrightarrow{A}$     \\ \bottomrule
