I created a document using Adobe Acrobat XI, my previous default highlight colors will no longer appear when I attempt to use that color again. E.g. -- When I highlight text with my current default color (lavender) the text changes to my default just fine, but if I need to make it stand out from other text and select yellow, which was a default color in the past, the highlighted lavender text will not change to yellow. (Even if I change my default color back to yellow, my text just shows as a white highlight. (I use a lot of colors each month when reconciling my bank statement to identify different items, and I need my full color palette back.)
Many thanks for a resolution.
Same here. It seems to have started in a recent update. Yellow and cyan show as clear but other lighter colors work fine, as does orange. The problem is if you have a file that was created with yellow highlights, all will show as clear highlights. The tool navigator Comments list shows yellow but the document does not. This problem has been reported in the forum in several threads since 2014 but no viable solutions are presented except running the Adobe Cleaner tool to reinstall (Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs ) I don't know if the license key or original install disk is required so I am hesitant to use it.
