New highlight in Acrobat reader is too faint, multiple highlight options please
In the new update, the color of the highlight changed from the bold yellow to the faint, faded yellow. I really cannot appreciate this change because of the poor contrast the faded yellow has with the white background.
I work with my computer all day and sometimes reduce the brightness level of the screen to reduce glare, which causes eye strain, but now the faded yellow highlight is so hard to see when the screen is on lower brightness.
If you must have this faded yellow color for the highlight, I would want to at least have multiple options selecting a shade that works. The old color worked really well, I don't know why you'd have to change it? It makes me curious what user research prompted this feature change and whether I am the only one who experience an issue.
I attached a screenshot to demonstrate the difference.
Dandi! I figured out a work around. It takes time which is annoying but not as annoying as the faint highlighter.
1. You highlight as usual.
2. Click on the highlighted text and you get the blue box
3. Go to the left edge of the blue box and hover right outside the blue line. A faint dotted box appears.
4. Select the text and it will be a bit darker
5. You can repeat this until you get the shade that works for you. Mine is three times.
6 If you want to delete the highlight you will have to delete each layer. For instance for me it is three layers.
I am sure there is an easier way but until I find it this works for me. I hope you see this!
I have the exact same problem. I am sorry I don't see a solution here. Did you ever figure one out?
