After upgrading to macOS Mojave, I suddenly cannot select text to copy anymore in Preview.app.

I can highlight as normal and when the highlighting tool is active, I can select text but it immediately gets colored yellow once I "release the mouse" (before the update, there were two ways of coloring text yellow: 1. Highlight text (making it blueish) and click the highlight tool, or 2. Click the highlight tool and drag and select it).

Edit: It is as if what has happened is that I can no longer see which text I am selecting. I can apparently select text and copy it and I can paste it into other programs, I just cannot see what text I am selecting while doing it.

  • Your last sentence says that you had this problem before the upgrade so why does your first sentence say the upgrade caused the problem? – user151019 Nov 10 '18 at 0:19
  • I totally see what you mean, Mark, I updated the text. Hopefully it is clear now. – Superpronker Nov 11 '18 at 10:10
