Using the Highlighter in Word

Source: WordTips:

Summary: Need to draw attention to something in your document? Use the highlighter. (This tip works with Microsoft Word 95, Word 97, Word 2000, Word 2002, and Word 2003.)

Word includes a tool that allows you to highlight your text, much the same way that you can use a highlighter pen or marker on printed material. You can highlight text in your document by clicking on the Highlight tool on the Formatting toolbar, and then selecting the text you want highlighted. The text is shown as if it had been marked with a highlighter.

When you are done marking text with the highlighter, you turn it off by again clicking your mouse on the Highlight tool or by pressing the ESC key. You can also apply highlighter marks to your text by first selecting the text and then clicking your mouse on the Highlight tool.

At some point you will probably want to remove the highlighting from your text. To do this, simply select the text you previously highlighted, and then click your mouse on the Highlight tool. The marks are removed, and your text again appears normal.
