Improve function to Highlight text

Helpful | Level 5

Currently highlight works as next:

  • I have to select text and then press ctrl+e
  • Text is highlighted in light-blue
  • I do not see the result of ctrl+e unless I unselect text (selection color hides color of highlighting)

How to improve:

  • Please highlight the whole current line of text in case when nothing is selected (I mean where cursor is positioned, but the text is not selected).
  • (Alternatively) Highlight only one word, but then please allow to highlight the whole line using ctrl+shift+e (I need this function, I use it to highlight the task that I am currently working on -- so I need the whole line to be highlighted)
  • Please change the color to yellow or allow to configure this somehow
  • (optionally) allow also second color (light green) on second shortcut

Hey there @Andrei L.2 - apologies for the tardy response to your comment and thanks for using Paper!

I know it's been a while since you posted this - are you still having this issue with highlighted text on Paper docs? Does it persist on other browsers ?

In any case, I wanted to thank you for this feedback and I’ll make sure your comments are passed along to our development team as we are always looking for ways to improve Paper. 

If you have any more feedback, questions or suggestions please let me know.
