InDesign trick: creating highlighted text

Leave a comment

Here’s how to create a highlighter style in InDesign.

Start with some text, of course. Using the Type tool, select the text you want to highlight.

Option-click the underline button in the control panel to bring up the underline options window.

Turn on underline, increase the weight to the same point size as your text, adjust the offset until it is level with your text, and set the color to yellow, or whatever you prefer.

Save as a Character Style, and this can be easily re-used as often as you like. You will need to adjust the weight and offset for different sizes of text.
