Highlighting files with Google Docs

Back to Google Docs Info main page

When you have a file open, you can highlight portions so that they will stand out and are more easily visible.

NOTE: The examples here show a word processing document, but you can highlight any Google file type.

  1. After you open the file, use your cursor to select the portion of the file you want to highlight.

  2. Click the "Text background color" button in the formatting bar at the top of the screen - it has a picture of a highlighter marker on it.

  3. Choose the color you want for your highlighting and click on it.

  4. The section you selected will now appear highlighted in the file.
