7. You can also highlight text by clicking the Draw tab. Then click the Highlighter icon. Move your mouse down to the text you want to highlight and drag your mouse over the text. You can change the highlight color by clicking from a color in the Color toolbar. Adjust the highlighter thickness by selecting from a size from the Thickness icon.
