I'm not able to use "Highlight" shortcut. No matter I press control+command+h or control+command+u, it results in underlining text. Clicking the "Highlight" button also underlines text. I can highlight text using highlight with specific though.

But it's quite inconvenient that I am not able to use shortcut to highlight. How could I fix it? enter image description here


I just find you can select no text then change default highlight type. So it's not a bug and problem solved.

Try clicking the highlight button (while not having any text highlighted) and select the highlight colour. It'll show a check mark beside the one you choose. Then unclick it and try the highlight shortcut again and it should make the default that colour highlight.


There is no need to use any shortcut command ... its direct... just keep the highlight selected and u can highlight text by just double finger drag...
