Tips for highlighting text in a PDF:

  • You can also use a PDF editor to highlight text. PDF editors typically have more features for highlighting text, such as the ability to change the thickness of the highlight.
  • If you are highlighting text in a PDF file that is password-protected, you will need to enter the password before you can highlight the text.
  • If you are highlighting text in a PDF file that contains scanned text, you may need to use an OCR (optical character recognition) converter to convert the text to a machine-readable format before you can highlight it.
  • Save the highlighted PDF file with a different name to avoid accidentally overwriting the original file.
