Highlighter tool



Our customers have been previewing our application that is using Groupdocs.Annotations. They are now asking if it is possible to highlight text so the background becomes yellow. I tried to set .Tools(AnnotationTools.All) to see all the available tools but there is no highlighter. It should work like the “Strikeout text” but paint the background yellow.

Are there any plans to add such a feature to Groupdocs.Annotations?

Thank you for your request. Yes you can set a color for text highlighting. Please use “.HighlightColor(int color)” parameter of the GroupDocs.Annotation widget and then use this annotation tool to select and highlight text.
For example in code it will looks like this
