How do I highlight?

By using the highlight tool in Prepare, you can draw and highlight the parts of a text you want. Note that what you highlight is personal and cannot be shared with others.

How to create highlights:

  • Choose the main document or the appendix you wish to make highlights in.
  • Select the highlight function by:
  • iPad: clicking on the pencil icon in the upper right corner.

  • Or: Hold your finger down on the screen and slide your finger up to the pencil icon 
  • Web: Left-click in a document and select the highlight icon
  • A bar displays at the bottom of the page. Here you can choose between 3 highlighters (red, yellow and green), two pens in the colors blue and red, and an eraser (iPad). Tap the color you want to draw or highlight with. 
  • Create a drawing or highligh by drawing on the screen.
  • Save your highlights by tapping the X-icon

Tip for web: How to create straight highlights
