I just installed Foxit Reader 2.4.1. To test the highlight function, I opened a pdf, highlighted some text, saved it, closed it and re-opened it. Now I can see the highlight, but I can't figure out how to remove the highlight after I save and re-open the document. Before closing the document, I could simply undo the operation but now I can't find a way to select the highlight. Is this not doable in Foxit Reader?
Step 1: Select Hand tool from Home menu.
Step 2: Right click on the highlighted part and select DELETE.
I have just tested it in my computer.
This works if the prior two suggestions fail (with Version: 184.108.40.206455)
From Home: click Select > click Select Annotation > then highlight the fields you want to un-highlight and then delete (I used the delete button on the computer).
