Hello so I have a pdf file. I can highlight but selecting the text and manually clicking the highlight in the toolbar itself. My question is what is the keyboard shortcut? I try to press shift U- but it strikes out my selected texts and brings up a box similar to a comment box for me to type in. The pic below is how it shows up as. Any wayts to fix it. I have already ticked the box for "use single key accelerator to access tool".

What is the keyboard shortcut for adobe for highlighting.

Hello,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

To highlight the text in the PDF, you can simply press "U" from your keyboard and then select the text you wish to highlight.

Please refer to the following help document to check the keyboard shortcuts for the Acrobat application: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/keyboard-shortcuts.html

 

Let us know if you experience any issues.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi
