This what I ever wanted in pdfs (e.g. scientific papers):
Highlighting just the text in one column. And give the possibillity to highlight constantly, that means switch it ‘on’ and everytime you mark a sentence it highlights immediatly, without pressing any other key or something else.
Hope DTPO get’s this soon …
I was so happy to have a highlight functionality, anyway. But this one in SL is it like it should be. And it’s enough.
Let me just add another advantage of the SL highlighting/selecting - when you copy/paste text from Preview selected documents, then text behaves normally - meaning no weird characters and white space is introduced (unlike when you use the command-option trick)
