how to leave your highlight blank

Leaving a highlight blank typically refers to situations where you want to emphasize a section of text, drawing, or document by highlighting it but without adding any specific color or content to the highlight. This can be useful for drawing attention to a particular area without adding color. Here’s how to do it in common software applications:

Microsoft Word:

  1. Select the Text: Highlight the text that you want to emphasize.
  2. Apply Highlighting: Go to the “Home” tab in the Microsoft Word ribbon.
  3. Open the Highlight Color Dropdown: Look for the “Text Highlight Color” button in the Font group. It typically looks like a highlighter marker. Click the arrow next to it to open the dropdown menu.
  4. Choose “No Color”: In the dropdown menu, you should see various color options. Scroll down and select “No Color” or “None.” This option will remove the color from the highlighted text, leaving it blank.

Adobe Acrobat Reader (PDFs):

  1. Highlight Text: Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  2. Select the Text Tool: Click on the “Highlight Text” tool, which looks like a highlighter icon.
  3. Highlight Text: Drag your cursor over the text you want to highlight.
  4. Change Highlight Color: Right-click on the highlighted text and choose “Properties.”
  5. Choose “None” for the Color: In the Properties dialog box, you’ll see a “Color” dropdown menu. Select “None” to remove the color from the highlight.

Online Text Editors (Google Docs, etc.):

  1. Highlight Text: Select the text you want to highlight.
  2. Change the Text Background Color: In the formatting options, find the “Text background color” or “Highlight” button. It usually looks like a paint bucket. Click on it.
  3. Choose “No Color” or “None”: In the color palette that appears, select “No Color” or “None” to remove the highlight color.

The process may vary slightly depending on the specific software or application you are using, but the general idea is to select the text, choose the highlight color option, and then select “No Color” or an equivalent option to leave the highlight blank. This will emphasize the text without adding any color to it.
