highlighted text

I can’t seem to get rid of the highlighting on some text. I select it and click no highlight and it stays the same. Other than retyping everything, nothing has worked for me to resolve this issue.
Thanks to all that have worked so hard on this beta. Can’t wait for the final release!
I’m on an Acer Aspire 5517, win 7 fully updated. Using beta 021.

Just to clarify, you’re actually selecting the text and choosing “Remove Color” from the highlight menu (either in Format>Highlight or in the formatting toolbar)? The highlight button doesn’t work as a toggle, so you can’t just click it again; you have to specifically choose to remove color. (Now, I’m not sure whether it’s supposed to be a toggle…)

Yes. Maybe it was because it was a cut n paste. I tried it with different text in same doc and I could remove the highlight. So, I figure it’s something to do with the cut n paste text. Thanks MimeticMouton for your response.
