    This is something I see far too often… people NOT using the highlight ability of a markup tool.
    What I see all the time is people adjusting the opacity on a markup so they can see the content underneath.
    Make it easy on yourself, turn on the highlighter function before you save that tool to a tool chest.

    Great tip @Doug McLean ! All of my custom area measurement tools are setup this way.

    On a similar note I have my default “Rectangle” tool set to a yellow color with the “highlight” option set and a yellow border. This provides a great tool for highlighting large blocks of text or an area on a drawing. The tool has the added benefit of providing a “crisp” rectangular highlight compared with the rounded end that the highlighter tool provides.
