Highlight text in Keynote on iPad
You can highlight text in text boxes and in shapes. These highlights aren’t visible in printed presentations.
When multiple people are working on a presentation, each person’s highlights appear in a unique color. To learn how to change your color, see Set your author name for comments.
Tip: If you want highlights that are visible in your final presentation, add a background color to text in any color. This type of highlight isn’t included with Keynote review tools.
Add or remove a highlight
You can highlight text everywhere except in charts and table cells.
Note: If the presentation is shared with others, only you and the presentation owner can delete your highlight. If someone else adds a comment to your highlight, the author name and color of the highlight changes to the comment’s author, and you can’t delete the comment.
Add a highlight: Select text, then tap Highlight.
Remove a highlight: Double-tap the highlighted text, then tap Remove Highlight.
Highlights added this way aren’t visible in printed or PDF documents. To add permanent highlights, see Add a background color to text.
Add a comment to highlighted text
Tap the highlighted text.
Tap “Add a comment,” then type your comment.
