Is it Acrobat DC or Acrobat 10? The two are not the same thing...And yes, it is possible. If you have Acrobat DC click the push-pin icon in the menu-bar to keep the tool selected.In Acrobat X right-click the Highlighter tool and select "Keep Tool Selected".

I have  Adobe  Acrobat dc and the pin trick doesn't work because the highlight tool deselects itself as soon as I've highlighted one thing. It won't stay selected - drives me crazy!

I have the same problem.  The push-pin icon for "keep tool selected" function is greyed out (Acrobat DC). What is the solution to this, please?  Thank you.
