Highlighting text portion in Adobe Reader

This task requires too many steps from the user:
1. Select a text portion
2. Right click to get to the context menu
3. Select the Highlight Text option
4. Click on the color button to get to the color palette
5. Select the desired color
6. Click OK to dismiss the dialog

I would like Adobe Reader to have simpler solution. One could be as follows:
1. Select the text portion
2. Right click to get to the context menu
3. From the context menu select one of color dots you recently worked with, which Adobe Reader remembered for you

If you want to include yet another color you would click on Highlight Text entry to get to the dialog box with already expanded color palette ready for selecting a color from the palette.
When dismissing the dialog box by selecting the OK button Adobe Reader would merge the selected color to the current color list

It would be nice to have a shortcut key combination just for the current color list you worked with (e.g. Magenta, Yellow, Blue) -- simple based on their ordinal number in the current list, like Ctrl+WindowsKey+1 for Magenta above, Ctrl+WindowsKey+2 for Yellow and Ctrl+WindowsKey+3 for Blue

Unfortunately there is no Adobe Reader target on that site, only higher level tools.
