Add a color highlight to text in Pages for iCloud
You can mark text in your document with a highlight—a color bar behind the text. You might want to use highlighting as a reminder to yourself to come back to that text later, or to point out an important passage for reviewers.
The highlight color behind text isn’t visible when you print your document.
Select the text you want to highlight.
Click the Insert button in the toolbar, then choose Highlight.
The text is highlighted in your author color.
To work with highlighted text, move your pointer over the highlight, then do any of the following in the popover that appears:
Add a comment: “Click Add a comment,” type your comment, then click Done.
Go to the next or previous highlight: Click the arrows.
Remove a highlight: Click Delete.
Note: Only you (or the document owner) can delete your highlight; however, if the document is shared and someone adds a comment to your highlight, the author name (and color) changes to the comment author’s name and color.
