Highlighter with different colors, saving options, customizable highlight styles and undo/redo functionality.
Select some text, press M - done.
Changes can be stored in Textmarker history for later visits.
About this Add-on
- Mark text:
Highlight selected text - [M], ,  or context menu
your changes and maintain them in the Textmarker history → [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [S]
your Textmarker actions using keyboard shortcuts
- You can also permanently delete
any highlight via context menu - not experimental anymore. default: activated.
- Customize Mark Styles:
Define how exactly the selected text will be highlighted
- Choose your shortcuts:
Like [Shift]+[Alt] better than [Ctrl]? No Problem.
- Copy to clipboard:
You can copy text marks, URL, site's title and more to the clipboard or download as text file.
You can make text marks serve as bookmarks (→ on your next visit it will be scrolled to the lowermost bookmark automatically).
- Wikipedia Look-Up:
Look up selected word on Wikipedia in a seperate tab - [W]
Looking for translators
Anyone interested in translating Textmarker (right now it's only available in English and German)?
Please contact me via e-mail and I will send you the text file.
Firfox' services.sync.prefs.sync doesn't work. For the next release i hopefully find a workaround for syncing Textmarker's settings.
Next release will include a toolbar for tablet users who can't use Textmarker via keyboard or context menu.
Textmarker vs. PDF search-highlighting
Either use Textmarker or the search-highlighting functionality in FF's built-in PDF-viewer. They are not compatible. The latter works very different from search-highlighting on webpages and will mess up text marks that are in the same container as search results.
Bug reports and suggestions via e-mail, please! (Firefox and user wishes are constantly changing - E-mail instead of grouse comments increases chance of Textmarker changes and fixes with next release;)
Shortcuts for saving, copying, setting a bookmark, re- and undo are disabled by default on install!
Textmarker's shortcuts might conflict with other shortcut settings (i.e. other addons or language specific letters)!
You can dis-/enable all Textmarker functions and customize shortcuts: Open options panel and goto 'Control'.
Not yet! FF's services.sync.prefs.sync does not work - have to find a workaround
Finally you can use Textmarker also on local files
Instead of copying highlights to the clipboard you can now download them as .txt file.
Enable it via options panel under 'History'.
- Textmarker logo for Addon Manager
- Saving without highlights:
You can use Textmarker's save functionality even if there are no highlights made yet.
- Choosing [Ctrl + Alt + M] as shortcut for highlighting does not interfere with the corresponding context menu any longer
