Is there a shortcut command for highlighting text (as opposed to right-click, highlight)?

Hi Scottf67536726,

To enable single-key shortcuts, open the Preferences dialog box (Edit > Preferences), and under General, select the Use Single-Key Accelerators To Access Tools option.

After making changes in preferences you can use Shift+U key for highlighting.

For more information please refer to the help document- Keyboard shortcuts for Adobe Acrobat DC

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Akanchha

thank God I found this. I highlight lectures all day (medical school) I spend so much time switching between text inserts and different highlight colors.... the frustration that their adobe didn't have hotkeys was eating at me... turns out the hotkeys were there, I just needed to activate them
