Where has the highlighting tool gone in version 7.0.7? I have version 5 at work and it will let me highlight - but in version 7.0.7 at home I cannot find the tool bar or an option to highlight.

If you're in Acrobat Pro, go to the "Tools" menu, select "Commenting" (first entry), then choose "Show Highlighting Toolbar" from that menu.  And that should set you going again.  (And you'll notice a lot more stuff in those menus, too.  Have a look around.)

If you're using the free Reader, the highlight tool is not available.

Hope that helps.
