  • Change color used for highlighted search result?

    I've been using foxit reader to search for signal names in pdfs of schematics. The default bluish highlighting color is not easily seen. Can I either (1) change the highlighting color of the search results, or (2) use a keystroke to make some sort of visual "bullseye" action that would draw my eyes to the search results? I would prefer to not highlight the selection with another color and then un-highlight before moving on to the next search result.

    Currently, Foxit Reader doesn't support to chang color used for highlighted search result. I've forwarded your comments as suggestion for processing. Suggestion ID#: READER-251.

      I have exactly the same issue. I vote to add a way to change the color of the highlight when searching and perhaps a way to make the current serach result blink.

          Hi, I want this too. It would make a BIG difference to my work being able to easily SEE the searched text. Currently I find it very difficult to see what has been found. I even changed the highlight colour in Windows 10 Technical Preview under regedit, but that doesn't change the colour that Foxit uses. Thanks!

              Yes, pleas either allow the user to change the color, or use one very bright color, even if the user can't change it.

                Hi, I signed up here just because of this topic :-) There really isn't a "highlight all search results" button? Damn.... Sometimes I need to see all found items without having to click through each one. For me the color is OK but I could imagine something with more contrast too. Thanks!

                    A workaround, some of the time, is to set the document background to a pale yellow. Then the blue blush highlight stands out. Of course, if the document has colored content this is not a great idea.

                      Absolutely essential if the search is to be of any use. I cannot see the highlight at all when searching small text or pages with complicated layouts.

                          I also came here and signed up for the forums just for this issue. I've used Foxit for years and like it a lot. I also have poor vision, and just can't see the highlights as is.

                          I do have a work-around: I zoom WAY into the page, so there are only a paragraph or so on the screen. Then I can see it. But I would encourage you to change this, either make it adjustable or make it a bright color.

                              That's great news!

                              It will ease my eye-strain as I often find myself scanning the page to find the faintly highlighted search text!

                              The current highlighting is far too faint and is difficult to find on a busy page.
