Highlite Text


Senior Member
Does anyone know of software that allows the user to highlight text. If so, can it highlite text in ANY document - including email?

Sure the built in new version of Word Pad, which comes with most if not all versions of Windows 7 supports highlighting text.
As far as email programs, I know
Microsoft Outlook
all support it, not sure about all the others.

Thanks for the information. I use Eudora for email (and always have). I'm hoping there's a program out there that will work with any tex - sort of like a transparent yellow 'text.'

If you want the text highlighted "in situ", that is within the program which generated it (as in email within Eudora) then you're only going to get that if it is a feature of the program itself. Highlighted text is a variation of the font supported by the application so it requires the application itself to support it. I'm not aware of any external app which will modify the text appearance which is displayed by another app.

OK & thanks. That answers my question. I think the only other possibility is if a program has an add-on.
