Portable document format (or PDF) is a universal document format that allows creators of PDFs to add emphasis to certain sections of a document by highlighting the text in Adobe Acrobat. Readers of the documents can add and remove highlighted text from a document if the creator has enabled commenting in Adobe Reader.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," "All Programs" and then "Adobe Acrobat/Reader."

  2. 2

    Click "File" and then "Open" from the top menu. Click the PDF document of choice and then click the "Open" button.

  3. 3

    Click and then drag the mouse cursor over the text you wish to remove the highlighting from.

  4. 4

    Click "Tools" from the top menu and then click the "Highlight Text" tool. The highlight text tool looks like a "T" with a marker. The highlight is removed from the text.

  5. 5

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 to remove highlighting from additional text in the Adobe document.
