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.
just to be clear i am using adobe pdf reader
-- EDIT -- "i can highlight by selecting the text**"
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.

Ooo i see. i have to press U first and then select text. I was selecting the text and then pressing U which causes it to crossout.
It seems that was the issue. Hope the information helped.
