    When reading a text, I usually markup with some colors in a paragraph. In order to change/choose a color, I have to move the cursor to the palette, so if there anyway that we can assign directly some shortcuts to specific colors of the highlighter, for example alt+1 = yellow, alt+2 = green....I think these shorcuts would be pretty quick and productive for readers.

    Hi ValeriE,

    In Foxit Reader 7.0.6 change your highlight color is pretty simple just you add color change icon in your quick lunch bar.

    To do this you have to follow these steps:
    1. click "Customize Quick Access Toolbar".
    2. In the box, You have to choose "Comment Format".
    3. Then Add "Line Color".
    4. Then click "OK".

    After that, you will see the option of a color change in your Quick Access toolbar

    Hope this method helps you.

    Actually we've been considering about this feature. I've added your comments as new feature request to PHANTOM-2859 for PM engineer's further processing. Hopefully we'll add this feature soon. Thank you.

    Sooo... the problem was reported in 2015, someone answered that the request was submitted in 2017, we are in 2019 now and I still have the same problem...
    Was there any real update of the software that doesn't work on my computer or nothing has been done?
    Does anybody have any tips to finally set up our own default highlight colors?
    Or do you know any other software that would let us do it?
    Thanks a lot in advance for your answers.

    Oh, great. That's exactly the feature I was looking for. I keep having to click options -> properties -> Color. I use a Green - Orange - Blue - Red coding system that I've picked up when I read things on IAnnotate on the Ipad, but those colors aren't in the default options. Also, it's hard to consistently pick the same colors that way, so being able to customize the standard colors would be Incredibly helpful.

    cherry Hi! I'm using the free Foxit Reader version 8.2.1.6871 and am looking to customize the highlighter shortcuts, similar to ValeriE. I use several different highlight colors in each document and would like to be able to easily change between them without going through the color and opacity menus each time I highlight a sentence, as that is annoying, time-consuming, and interrupts the flow of my reading. Essentially, the functionality of the Comment Format toolbar is exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm wondering if it's possible to customize the 6 preset colors, or add more options.

    If you'd like to save one color going forward, you may go under "File"->"Change Toolbar Mode"->"Classic Toolbar Mode" to switch to Classic Toolbar Mode first. Then go under "Comments"->"Text Tools"->"Highlight" or click "Highlight" on the toolbar to add the highlight. After having added one highlight, you'll see a small "property" window appears then you can easily change the color from the "Line Color". Once you've changed to a new color, then new color will be saved until you change to another color. You may give it a go on your side and see if it helps.

    BTW, to switch from "Classic Toolbar Mode" back to "Ribbon Mode", you may go under "View"->UI Options"->"Change Toolbar Mode".

    I agree that the 3rd option helps, but it still doesn't give the functionality that use to exist in prior versions. You have to highlight first then change the color of the highlight each time, it won't save going forward unless you stop and save it as a new default. In prior versions once you changed the color the next text you highlighted was the new color. Bring back the prior functionality, this is one of 3 or so main functions I use in this program and is very annoying the way it is.

    2) You may click on the highlight, then you can see a new menu "Comment Format" appears. You could then change the color under "Comment Format" menu.
    3) You may add the color change icons to Quick Launch Bar. To do that, you may right-click on the blank area of the toolbar, then click "Customize Quick Access Toolbar"->under "Choose commands" section, please choose "Comment Format"->then Add "Line Color"->"OK". After this, you could highlight the text, choose the highlight then click on "Line Color" appeared at the Quick Access Toolbar to change color.

    Hope info above helps.

    Thank you bro.. you save me

    Hi ValeriE,

    I've forwarded your comments to PM team so we could consider to improve the highlight color change process in future versions. When one highlight has been added, we click on the highlight, the "Comment Format" menu should appear and be focused.

    Many thanks Cherry. Your help was indeed very helpful. Option 3 is the one that comes closest to the routine I got used to. It seems I have to adapt my routine, involuntarily, to the change of the reader's technical properties.

    If there is a way that this will find its way to the developers, I find this super annoying. Maybe it was an unintended consequence. Maybe the developers could think about improving the highlighting functionality in one of the next updates!
