I know this is still experimental and everything, just wanted to report that it's missing while it was available in the previous canary version 80.0.355

now i can also highlight the same text more than once in 80.0.358.

as you can see by applying multiple highlights to the same text i could create new colors. a darker green that is a mix of all the colors

p.s the highlight option need to be enabled from the flags first

edge://flags/

@HotCakeX Selection is not needed to modify (change color) or to delete existing highlight. Option to delete a highlight is displayed with right click over an existing highlight.

 

When a selection is made, options displayed are to create a highlight from selection and thus can be used to create overlapping highlights.

Thank you, this was helpful and solved my problem :)

@HotCakeX 

I cannot enable the highlight function not even entering flags. It is crucial for me to have these function available. Any other options to enable it? Will Microsoft update Edge to allow this function?

Hi@Manvtech 

 

if you're on Canary, you can do it by enabling this flag

then restart browser, use the mouse to highlight some parts of the text in PDF, right-click on them and choose the highlight colors

You're welcome, you should be able to use it on Dev channel too by now
