I have a .pdf file in which some of the text has been highlighted. I cannot find anywhere in the help index where it shows how to remove this from the .pdf document. Can anyone help? I figured out how to add more highlighted words… but not how to remove the highlighting.
I am using Acrobat 5.0 on a WIN platform.
Appreciate your help!

Select the Object Tool (black arrow) and click on the highlighting to select it and then hit Delete.
If you cannot select the highlighting then it has not been added in Acrobat but rather befoe the PDF has been created and therefore cannot easily be removed.

In the latter case that Dorian mentions, it may be a color background on the text and you might be able to do it with the text attributes.

Thank you guys for your responses. Unfortunately, I do think it was put in before the .pdf was produced, but at least I know what to do in the future….
