how do you turn off highlighting so you can, for instance, copy text?
*many thanks. i see you work for adobe. this in unintuitive and couldn't
find answer anywhere on site.*
*instead of the way you've got Help set up, just do an old-fashioned index
created by people like you!!
Bernd is not an Adobe employee (STAFF), but a Most Valuable Participant (MVP). If you want to know what this means, you can find it here
under MVP badge program. And I am afraid that it is even far less intuitive to get to this information.
yes, i find if i right=click the cell, highlight goes away.
*but here's the harder part. it still is set on highlight and i don't see
how to turn if off if , e.g., i paint text for the purpose of cutting.*
*many thx again
Click on another tool, either the hand or the arrow and it will automatically deselect the highlight tool. Another option is to select the highlight tool, right click, select Properties or CTRL+E, when the dialog box appears, uncheck the box labeled "keep tool selected". This will ensure that after you highlight the text, the tool will automatically return to a default setting.
