Hello - I posted this before and am surprised I got zero replies (?)....

I'm trying to yellow highlight some words in text I created in essential graphics panel. 

Creating a box over the text and then chosing "multiply" under opacity - the way I do in on imported images with text - doesn't seem to work with text I created myself. 

Who knows how to do this?

THANKS MUCH!

Did you select the text then try the Essential Graphics color setting for it?

Hi Neil, thank you for that suggestion. By color setting, do you mean add a background to it? I can certainly highlight the text that way, but the highlighting/color would plop on with the text, rather than simulating the stroke of the highlighter drawing over the text. But... that said, I just tried something else, and I think I just figured it out somehow. I think I'm all set now, but thank you again.
