Used by educators in the classroom to help students identify and group key facts together, indicate new words to learn, or collect research to assist with studying. Texthelp’s Highlighting Tools are great for all content and grade levels.

It is sometimes helpful but sometimes it will not show up so that was really frustrating for things I needed to highlight

Solves a gross oversight in Google Docs: the ability to quickly highlight. It can be slow in large documents. Contrary to reviews here, you CAN remove a mistakenly highlighted passage, but you must do it through the standard Google Docs interface. To make it fast: 1) Highlight a section of normal text in your document and right click to "update 'Normal Text' to match". 2) Select an erroneously highlighted passage and press Ctrl- \.

This app is a one-button shortcut to highlighting text through the menu. It's quite handy but it's a little bit too slow for a shortcut. On a 5-6 page document, it takes around 3-4 seconds for the highlight to appear. On a 170 page doc, it takes upwards of 1 minute. In the latter case the add-on is rendered useless, since it's faster to highlight through the menu.

I highlight some words. I could not figure out how to selectively unhighlight words. My only choice was to unhighlight all highlighted words which I did. This had a bad interaction with table headers which I filled earlier with table properties. The words in the headers have an immediate white background where there used to be fill. The table header text was not touched by the highlight tool so it is a mystery why this happened - magic? I have tried everything to undo this with no luck yet. There is something evil going on here.

Violet color is too dark. If I could adjust the lightness itself ... then 5 stars:-!

Great! I especially like the way we can gather all our highlights into one document!

I got it while on one document, but when I tried to use it on another, it was not there. I clicked "Get add-ons," but because I already had it for one, it was marked as "downloaded." I can't figure out what to do, because nothing I have done so far works! It is completely useless!

I do not like this app because if you want to undo what you just highlighted, you have to delete all highlights. I really don't get the point of collecting the highlights, too.

It doesn't work on my computer. The only place where it works is on a computer at my school.
