So I decided to download an "eBook" for college for the first time, since it's cheaper than a physical book.
It's on Adobe Digital Editions (188.8.131.521)
What I normally do in text books, is I highlight key texts from a chapter.
I figured you'd have the ability to highlight on each page, and then come back and view the highlighted material later. Talk about frustrating.
Is it possible and I'm just not seeing it?
I guess the second best thing for now is to re-write the text in the bookmarks.
Add the book to the Library (or bookmarks wont work), then select the text and click on the "Add Bookmark" button (towards the top between the printer and the font size buttons).
re: how to highlight text in Adobe Digital Editions - ebooks:
1. select text
2 right-click and select "highlight" and 'voila!!"
I press highlight however it is "greyed-out" and does not work. How do I get it to work?
The only choice that is not "greyed-out" is Bookmark the Page -- all of the other options
Add Note to Text
Open Pop-Up Note
are all "greyed-out" and not working.
In my case, I just exited the book and went back to the library. Then I clicked the "read" button which took me back to the previous page I was on. Upon right-clicking the selected text, the option to highlight was there. Beware this functionality is a bit temperamental depending on the text you highlight. The developers should address this, but I can't call anyway since it seems ! I'm on "forum support" only.
Has anyone figured out how to highlight. My highlight button is Gray as well and i tried to exit and open it again but nothing.
Really strange but it worked
I have the opposite problem. I want to remove a highlight, but can't find a way of doing it.
If you right-click the highlighted section, click on "open pop-up note" and then click on the little gear wheel, you should be able to delete the highlight. 🙂
