Required products: Tool Factory Word Processor V3
The Highlighter function is a very helpful function that is included in Tool Factory Word Processor. It can be especially useful if you want to highlight an important part of text that you want your students to focus on.

Step 1 - Activate the Highlighter Tool Bar.

Step 2 - Choose the color of the highlighter that you want by clicking the appropriate button on the Highlighter Tool Bar.

Step 3 - Once you have the appropriate color selected, hold down the left click button of your mouse and drag it over the portion of text you wish to highlight. It's as easy putting highlighter into a book!

Step 4 - If you wish to erase what you just highlighted, click on the Remove Highlight button. Once this is done it is the same process as highlighting. Click and hold the left mouse button and drag it over the highlighted text that you wish to remove the highlight from. Good luck doing that in a book!
