moderated Re: MS Word and highlighting question


 

As Richard pointed out, Alt + H followed by I puts you into Highlighting, you can then arrow around and choose which colour you want to highlight the text with, the font remains Black, it's the background which changes.

Since Yellow is the first item pressing Alt + H followed by I and enter selects it and apparently Alt + Control + H does as well.

In Outlook you have to press Alt + H followed by I and 1 to get into the listing of available highlight colours, but if all you want is Yellow then Alt + Control + H also does the trick.

If anyone knows how to do this, please share with the entire list as I would like to know how  to highlight as well.

Thanks.

So here’s my challenge.  I am typing for a transcription client.  There are points in the text where a note needs to be normal text but the highlight is yellow, not necessarily the text color itself as yellow.  Does that make sense, and how do I go about doing this?  I’m using the latest version of JFW and Word 365.
