Search or Ask a Question

This is a keyword search that looks for matching articles that contain one or more words specified by a user in articles’ tags, title and content. The search results are sorted by the frequency of words found in articles and weighted to give preference to tags, title and article content in that order. Words from the article tags rate higher than words from the article title and words from the article title rate higher than words from the article content. The logical operators e.g. + ! || && etc or quotes to search for a phrase are disregarded.

I have a problem with the Highlight Text Tool adding a highlight which covers the text.

 The Highlight Text Tool now adds a highlight which covers the text - the yellow is in front of the text instead of behind.

When I save the document and display it in Adobe Reader, the highlight is behind the text. When I reopen the document in PDF-XChange Viewer, the highlight still covers the text.  


 The most likely cause is that the "blending Mode" for the Highlight text tool has been switched to "Normal" rather than "Multiply"


Check that you have the "Properties Toolbar enabled by right clicking an unused portion of the Tool bar (CTRL+E)

  and with your highlight selected, use it to change the blend mode and this should help in resolving the problem:



Though it may be necessary to "Set the Current Appearance as Default" by right clicking on the highlighted text, then selecting the option from the list that appears.
