Hi, it is possible to do this by a tap-hold gesture over a word (that can be selected in the first place). You should get an entire word selection - with handles that allows you to expand or contract the selection.
1. open any file
2. look for a single word to select
3. tap and hold over the word, then release
RESULT - the entire word will be selected with selection handles that are movable, and a context menu pops up asking whether you would like to Copy, Highlight, Strikethrough, Underline or Define the word.

Hi, Could you please explain what you mean by "Adobe 8 Higher?" Please describe what your intention is, it's possible we can help. Thanks, Mark

You are saying that a photo is not showing in a PDF on Acrobat Mobile, but desktop Acrobat is able to show it? I am aware of some cases such as images in JBIG, JPX file formats, or in 16-bit or Indexed color spaces, or images that contain a lot of gradients and shadings that still have difficulties showing on Mobile. Also very large images may be too much for the device to render. Would you consider sharing such a file with us that (as) does show on desktop Acrobat but (b) doesn't on iOS? Thanks, Mark
If by "resize", you could also possibly mean:
1. the number of pages - pages can be deleted in Acrobat Mobile using the Organize Pages tool
2. the size in KB/MB/GB - this cannot yet be done on Acrobat Mobile, the desktop product can do this easily
3. resize the page dimensions, see below, use the "Set Page Boxes" tool in Acrobat DC (desktop)
It is possible to resize a PDF in the desktop version of Acrobat DC using the Set Page Boxes tool, located in the Print Production toolset. This is used primarily to set the page geometry used in print production, such as the Trim- or BleedBoxes. But at the lower part of that tool's dialog is "Set Page Sizes", and there the page size may be changed.
You may already be aware of this, please forgive me if this is the case. But files containing text that are scanned, even if they look like they are pure text, cannot be highlighted, it is just an image of text. Are you certain you are not trying to apply highlight to text inside an image?
Secondly, files that have been highlighted in other apps, e.g., Word, once converted to a PDF will not be accessible from Acrobat, that is, you cannot select, edit or delete the highlights. If Acrobat-created PDFs in legacy (desktop) Acrobat have highlighting, they should be editable.
If none of these cases is relevant here, would you consider sharing such a file with us?
