Hello, I'm acrobat pro DC user.

I frequently use the highlight function... almost every time I read PDF files.

I was once able to select color not only yellow of highlight.

But I can't find the icon (below) anymore. ;(

Is there anyone who have a possible idea ?

You may have to select a tool first. See this article for some ideas,

You have to add it to the "Toolbar" if it is not there.

Right click on a blank space in the Toolbar.  Choose "Customize Quick Tools".

Add the Color Picker by selecting it, (It's under Comment), then click the + button on the right to add it to the top.

Click "Save" to keep your changes. It will then show up in the Toolbar.

Thank you for your kind answer.

I followed the procedure as you told and found out the fact that Korean version of pro DC didn't have the specific icon of color picker as you can notice. I attached the pics below.

I guess the Adobe developer should consider this problem.

Thank you for the apply.

Now I see the best shortcut is using 'Ctrl + E' to pop up 'highlights properties' window.
