I use the highlight tool to call out specfic text in doc's.

 

But now the HL tool just adds a small text balloon & doesn't appear to HL the selected text. There is a sidebar at right which displays the highlighted text sections. After that sidebar appeared, my highlighter stopped highlighting text, and only added the balloon.

I can't fiind the correct procedure to simply HL text & not add the text balloon.

Screenshots below show the text balloon now appearing, and to right is properly highlighted text. THe sceond option is the result I am trying to restore.

(also, for some reason my spelling correct doesn't work on Adobe forums, but it does on any other forum. (using Safari) is there a way to enable this feature?

Thanks

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described, highlight tool just adds a small text balloon & doesn't appear to highlight the selected text

 

I have tried to reproduce the issue on my end using Acrobat DC version 21.01.20155 and its working fine.

 

Would you mind sharing the version of the Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the latest version installed. Go to Help > Check for Updates and reboot the computer once

 

If it still doesn't work please reset the Acrobat preferences to default as described in the help page - https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-default/td-p/4792...

 

If it still doesn't work, please create a new test user profile with full admin rights or enable the root account in Mac and try using the application there and check

 

Regards

Amal
