Feature Request: Text Highlighting Option (Not Shortcut)


#1

Please add “Highlight selection” option on context menu (when I right click after selecting some text). Also please add two option and feature (if not available) in settings as following:

  1. Save highlighting and annotation data on additional file.
  2. Save highlighting and annotation data on the original PDF.

#2

The Highlight feature is experimental and only included in the pre-release version and the current (11105) shortcut is A (Annotation) for a selection or Ctrl+Left mouse to mark an Area then release control and press A to highlight the Area

I recommend the first time you run it, before opening a pdf, you change via Settings > Advanced Options this section from true to false see Highlighting removal after saving

AnnotationDefaults [
HighlightColor = #ffff60
SaveIntoDocument = false
]

1.Save highlighting and annotation data on additional file. = false
2.Save highlighting and annotation data on the original PDF. = true

The right click in SumatraPDF has never been adapted for commands other than those you will find in Right-Click.pdf and the reason is currently the same as for toolbar as given here Toolbar-design
