Text highlighting in footnotes

I would love to be able to highlight text in the footnotes/comments inspector. (When the inspector gets focus the text color and highlighting wells are both automatically grayed out.)

It’s possible to copy and paste highlighted text from the main editor into a footnote, but it would be nice to be able to apply highlighting directly.

A search of the forum and manual didn’t turn up anything on this topic, but apologies if I missed it.

You can apply a highlight via the Format menu, the context menu, or the keyboard shortcut Shift-Cmd-H. It’s just the popovers in the format bar that are incompatible with the focus in the inspector comments and footnotes and have to be disabled.

Great! Thank you MM!
