Hi, I've got a question about the use of the "highlight text" function

 

To highlight text, I used to select the text and then use the "ctrl + alt + H" shortcut. But I noticed this sortcut is no longer available.

 

I just managed to get the function back by selecting the tool via the "single key accelerator" and then select text.

 

But I wonder if it was still possible to use the previous method. Do you have any information?

 

Have a great day. Best regards

Hi Amal, thank you for the answer

I did nothing particular, I just got used to the new way of using this function with the keyboard shortcuts.

Under Preferences > General > Use single-key accelerators to access tools.

Highlight tool will then be accessible with the "U" keyboard shortcut

Have a great day. Best regards

Hi Amal, thank you for your answer.

I was already aware about the keyboard shortcuts. But they seem to have changed. So the ctrl+alt+H shortcut for highlight seem to have disappeared?

Have a great day. Best regards

Hi Amal, thank you for your message and sorry for the delay

I finally get used to the new highlighting. I thought I was doing something wrong but it's just the new behaviour of the software. No need to contact the engineering team. 

Have a great day. Best regards
