Highlighting articles

You can easily add and remove highlights to articles in your Papers library. These highlights are also synced to your Papers for Mac library if you are using Papers on both your Windows and Mac computers.

We wanted to make highlighting as easy as possible: whether you are in the full-screen view, or just seeing a preview of your article you can select any amount of text when the highlight button is active, and the selected text is automatically highlighted once you finish your selection.

If you would like to use one of the different underline options, or strikethrough your text, you first click on the highlight button to change it back to text select button. Make sure you right click in the PDF to select the underline mode you would like to use, then select your text.
