How do I highlight on the web? 🧑‍💻

1. Click on the start of the text that you'd like to highlight and drag to where you'd like the highlight to finish.

2. Choose which colour you'd like your highlight to be.

How do I remove a highlight?

You can remove your highlight in two ways:

1) Click on the highlight you'd like to remove and then choose the grey circle with the line through, your highlight will then turn grey and fade away.

2) Go to 'Notes and Highlights' located in the toolbar within the eReader. Click on the three dots next to the highlight you'd like to delete and click 'delete'.

Note: It is not currently possible to highlight when reading books via a mobile/tablet browser. However, if this is something that would interest you, let us know!

How do I highlight in the app? 📱

You can highlight ePUBs within the app by holding down on the word you'd like to highlight. If you'd like to highlight more than one word, drag along the text until you've selected all the text you need. A colour pallet will then appear and you can choose the right one for you.

Note: It is currently not possible to highlight PDFs within the app.

How do I remove a highlight?

How much text can I highlight? 🤔

There's no set limit but we recommend only highlighting the text you need to avoid any issues within the eReader.
