only 1 color available, ok, you can set 3 colors at options, it is very good for me, thanks.
When I select some text and click highlight, the addon highlights the whole page except the selected section.
Addon don't work in my Firefox (45.0.2 ESR)
I dont know why but links from the other day missing. and its not cc cleaner I have just tried it. it seems to be the date???
This is the first highlighter addon I've found that works! To turn on keyboard shortcuts the box in the options menu must be clicked. It is also nice that the user can choose from a wide variety of colors! However, the highlights do not stay when the page is reloaded.
Excellent add-on. The TextMarker works as expected in Firefox under Linux Mint 17.
Hotkeys not working.
It seems I'm not the only one having such difficulty trying to find a simple "highlighter" that makes it easy to highlight (even just 3 or 4 colors would be sufficient - heck, even TWO would be fine by me) whatever amount of text on a page is needed, with the option to save it for later or not, as well as the ability to print it out the page or parts of it with the highlights as well -one WOULD THINK that ALL browsers would have this built in already, & the fact that they're not says a LOT about them (but I'll not go into that) - I appreciate all the efforts all the various devs/people have taken into providing what seems would be such a ridiculously simple thing to provide/create - however, I can't even write a single complete line of the most basic programming - hello world is as far as I got, so I've got mad, maad respect for all you "geeks" out there. That said,unfortunately, this highlighter addon, along with the other 4 or 5 I've tried today, so far haven't worked very well.
With TextMarker here, highlighting, then right clicking to bring up the menu, choosing highlight! was easy enough to figure out, but I could not get the highlights to be whatever colors I wanted them to be - they just kept cycling through - yellow, green, blue, red, yellow, green, blue, red, etc... in options I played with the menu - only 5 choices, how hard can it be? Right? Sure, it says use the "M", "N" & "B" keys for hotkeys - but nothing I tried managed to get them to make whatever highlights I wanted those colors - holding right mouse key and doing a combo with the letters, left mouse key+B,N or M, etc, etc - so maybe I'm just really retarded and making things more difficult than they need to be, but just highlighting and pushing any of the keys afterwords didn't work, nor did shift+B/M/N combo work...at one point, text that I highlighted and was trying to get blue instead of yellow, I re-highlighted and chose remove highlights from text and the entire paragraph I'd highlighted disappeared - after I refreshed the page it returned with the deleted text w/out the highlight. Anyways, I didn't have much luck getting this to run smoothly. I know alot of the addons seem to have compatibility issues since the new FF update, which could possibly be the case with this addon here too? IDK, anyways, I'll keep playing with it - maybe it's the FF settings I've got that's messing with it - I'll update this post if I have any epiphanies or lightbulbs go off. As well as keep trying out other highlighters too - somethings gotta give!
I honestly was going to give it one star, after getting so frustrated with not being able to get something so seemingly simple/basic so difficult to get to work for me - maybe some precise instructions on the hot keys for highlighting as well as sharing what kind of settings you've got that might help with incompatibility issues between FF and the addon maybe? anyways, thanks Simon, appreciate your contribution - if we can just get it working smoothly now....
Highlights don't persist between page loads. If the highlights aren't remembered, the rest doesn't really matter, does it?
Most of the time, it does nothing or highlights from the end of the selection to the bottom of the page. Rarely it will highlight correctly. I don't understand why its so hard to find a simple highlighter or how such a simple addon could be so hard to make.
* Click on options and it wont do anything except lock up machine
* Easy to access on context menu but would be nice to have a small logo to find it
* Highlights alot of the text sometimes when you would expect it to just highlight what u select
I’ve been using TextMarker! for a few months, and it mostly works. However, I find that it sometimes malfunctions and highlights text from the end of the text that I selected to the bottom of the web page (instead of highlighting the text that I selected) or fails to highlight selected text. I’m using Firefox ESV 17.0.2 and previously used this add-on with ESV 10.0.7.
Also, when I attempted to make a donation using the “Contribute” button above, I was led to a PayPal screen where the “Receiver” was listed as “wolf, wolf.” Consequently, I donated directly at www.savethechildren.org and when I used PayPal there I saw no such Receiver.
Errr... so we can highlight a text in a webpage, right... And when you return another day to the same page, all highlighting is missing.
You must be joking asking for a donation, pal.
Is not permanent?.............................
Some web pages are the length of short novels. Using TextMarker! makes it possible to keep track of things.
K.I.S.S. It highlights text, what else could you want? Fewer features, not more. But I have to admit that pasting in the URL along with copied text is very cool.
Like another reviewer, I found that text selected right-to-left does not become highlighted upon command. No biggee.
Says what is says - some more features like shortcuts, saving the highlights would be really useful.
It's great extension but can you please include permanent highlighting as it used to be in the Highlights extension - https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/highlights/
It would be one of the best with this function
interferes with browser's search function (Ctrl+F). If this addon is activated in Firefox 13, the firefox page search fails to find text very often.
Great add-on! Thank you!
Великолепное расширение! Спасибо!
how to change colour???
One of the best ADD ONS for firefox. I use this EVERYDAY.
Would love this add on if it could be updated to save highlights and if all the highlights actually printed out. Great idea-- all browsers should have this ability.. it's a no brainer. Please update. Thank you.
To save pages with highlighted phrases as standard .MHT files or .MAFF/ZIP archives, use UnMHT or MAFF extensions (search here for "MHT"). These extensions can save pages with images in one file (.mht) like Internet Explorer.
It would be a dream add on if you could save highlighted text.
I will donate you 5 dollar for sure if you do that.
Highlighting works great. Shows great promise.
Need to be able to save highlights for future reference.
Not very useful at this time.
