I recently discovered the new feature in Acrobat Pro DC that allows me to use the highlight tool to highlight "text" in a scanned pdf that has not been ocr'd. I tried to use it today but it would not work. Was the awesome feature removed? If so it should be brought back!

Yes the issue is file specific. In certain files, the highlighting tool does not work.

We are not able to reproduce the issue at our end, able to highlight in non-OCR'd files.
Please let us know the following info to nail down the issue-
-Adobe Acrobat version
-System (Mac/Win 7/Win 8/Win 10)?
-If the issue is file specific?
