Hi,

I would like to suggest an implementation of highlighting that works a bit the same like in mac's Preview - fast an intuitive. Right now highlighting is buried in a right-click menu or on the menu bar and it takes three clicks to highlight something. Perhaps a pen-marker could be added next to the pencil-marker (for notes) that could be turned-on as in Preview so that you highlight by just marking text.

I would also like to see this working in the reading modes.

Morten

I don't highlight but your reasoning make perfect sense. A one-click solution would be an improvement.

Good idea! Or, put a few colors in the toolbar that are always available.

Just exploring the highlighting option and was surprised that there is only one colour? And no underlining? Am I missing something?

You can define a large variety of styles under Display -> Define Highlight Styles.  This is also available under the 'gear' in the Highlight Palette.
