The Highlight Tool:

This tool allows you to highlight text throughout a PDF. You can hover over the annotation to change color, copy the text, and create a comment. You can free draw with the Highlight Tool by selecting the 'Box Highlighter' option. 

How to use: Ensure the Highlight tool is selected, then click-and-drag over the text you wish to annotate.  

Things to keep in mind: If you find that you are not able to select text on the page, please see our article on the OCR tool. There is also an option to use box highlighter that can be freedrawn if you are having still having issues with the text post-OCR:

The Strikethrough Tool:

The Strikethrough Tool allows you to strikethrough text. This is most useful for those editing or proofreading a document.

How to use: Ensure the Strikethrough tool is selected, then click-and-drag over the text you wish to annotate.  

Things to keep in mind: The Strikethrough Tool will only work on the embedded text on the document itself and not inserted text-boxes that have be added.  

The Underline Tool: 

The underline tool can be used to help emphasize a point or draw attention to the area.

How to use: Ensure the Underline tool is selected, then click-and-drag over the text you wish to annotate.  

Things to keep in mind: If you want to have a section of text be both highlighted and underlined, the best method for that is to underline the word or sentence first THEN highlight over it.
