Deleting highlighting?

Postby TrailRider » Tue Dec 16, 2014 9:09 pm

I can see how to highlight. But is there a way to delete it?

You can remove highlights and underlines in Gospel Library for Windows, though this feature is still lacking a bit of polish. At present you can remove highlights, so long as you don’t have any text selected, by right clicking (mouse) or by pressing and holding (touch) over (on) the highlight you wish to remove. The radial (circular) menu will then appear. From there, you can tap the blue portion of the “Highlights” option, then “Remove Highlight”.

For now, the app tries to estimate which highlight you’re trying to remove based on its relative position to your finger or cursor and its size, but we’ll be adding a selector in the not too distant future to allow you to pick which highlight you wish to edit or delete. It will also be possible to remove a highlight with text selected.

In the meantime, here are a few videos that may help you even more:

(To delete a highlight) lightly tap do not hold down the little square at the right across from the highlight, one or several little boxes will appear. Each box represents a Highlight. You must press delete and it will delete one box. You must do this same process over and over until all boxes are deleted, at that time the highlight will also be deleted.

These steps do not apply to Gospel Library for Windows or Gospel Library for Windows Beta. The video linked above shows how to remove a highlight in Gospel Library for Windows (detailing the steps from back when it was in beta). The process is nearly identical in the current beta version of the app.
