With keyboard maestro, it is easy to highlight text using the “apply style to clipboard” action to create a yellow background.
What I would like is a MS Word like “universal” RTF text highlighter which means that
1- I turn the highlighter on (for example a keyboard shortcut via keyboard maestro)
2- I can select text → highlight as often as I want (as I am reading through the text)
3- I turn off the highlighter (again perhaps a keyboard shortcut via keyboard maestro)
After a lengthy discussion on the keyboard maestro forum, it does not appear simple to create a MS Word like highlighter using a trackpad (a mouse, no problem).
I was wondering if the select text → highlight as often as I want could be done with an AppleScript
thanks in advance for your time and help
