I have a text box with the days of the week in it and the text box has a gray background. M T W T F S S (like this but in a box with a gray background).
I am trying to highlight one of the days (letters) with a yellow highlight. I was using a pencil to do so but when I put it over the day, it covers the day of the week completely.
How do I highlight one of the days correctly?
Set your highlight object to Multiply in the Effects panel.
