I think that the word "highlight" indicates what the function should do, however the pale yellow in the Evernote Windows app is barely visible, so it hardly highlights at all. The poor highlight contrast is especially apparent on web-clipped pages which may contain other coloured elements such as images. I understand that some people prefer muted colours, whilst others (such as myself) prefer much brighter fluorescent colours for highlighting, so I would suggest that the solution would be to allow users to choose. Many applications on many different platforms have a choice of highlig
Julie in Oz replied to SK_123's question in Evernote for Windows Requests (Versions 6.25.1 and under)+1 for the ability to choose highlight colour. The current faint yellow does not stand out, and can hardly be called a "highlight"!
