Add Highlight Formatting

Reader rating: 3 out of 10


If you need to emphasize text in your document, you can easily apply highlighting to it.

Add Highlight Formatting

1. Highlight the text that you would like to apply highlighting to.

2. Click the highlighter button on the toolbar (this should be in the top right toolbar, next to the text color button).

3. From the menu that appears, select a highlighting color.

4. Your text will now be highlighted.

Tip: To remove highlighting, just select the color that is the same as the background.

Tip: If you don't have the highlighter button, click the "down-arrow" on the Toolbar. This will bring up a menu of other toolbar commands which you haven't used recently. (Applies to Office 2000 and above only.)
