Aloha,Adobe Reader "Highlight text" does not workOS:Win7, Adobe Reader X: Version 10.1.4When I receive PDF documents, I can use "highlight" fine.However, when I create PDF documents from my HP Laserjet, I can select "highlight text" and the text selection cursor shows/changes, but the selected text does not highlight/function.I have checked (under Comment property), that the color is yellow and tried all modes of opacity, but nothing happens.Any advice?Mahalo from Hawaii!!

You have to first run OCR on a scanned page in order to be able to highlight text using this tool.-------------------------------------Visit my custom-made PDF scripts website: http://try67.blogspot.comContact me personally: email@example.com
As I have been directly asked…The other poster's suggestion is pretty much covering it.In addition, you might also have a look at the way you create the PDFs (unless you are using your LaserJet as a scanner).Hope this can help.Max Wyss
