Removing Highlighting in Scriptures

Postby eveaorr » Mon Oct 29, 2018 6:55 am

I can't seem to find a way to remove highlighting or underlining once I've put it in my scriptures. When I tried, the highlighting got darker instead. It looks terrible and is a great distraction. How can this be done?

To remove a highlight, do a quick tap on the highlight, then tap the "Remove" button on the menu that pops up. If you have multiple highlights on top of the first, you'll need to repeat a few times (for each highlight deleted, you should see the color getting lighter).

It sounds like you've created several highlights on top of the first by accident, by long-pressing to select text, instead of doing a quick tap to select the highlight. The trick is to do a quick tap instead of long-pressing.
