[FORGIVE THE WRONG TOPIC - THERE IS NO ADOBE READER TOPIC]

Adobe Reader

Is there a built-in keyboard shortcut that will apply highlighting to text?  So that I can:

Select sentence
Hit Alt + h
Selected is highlighted

Lacking that, is there any way to record a macro?

Thanks!

Hi

I think the closest you can get to this is to enable Edit-> Preferences -> "Use single-key accelerators to access tools"

You can then use the letter "U" to select the Highlighter tool and mark any text in sequence as you select it. It does not automatically mark the text though and I am not aware of any shortcut or the possibility for macro recordings that would do that...

cheers
capt.
