Highlighting is similar to highlighting print-based documents but better. You can extract highlighted text from Word documents and web pages to create study guides, outlines or complete assignments. Highlights from multiple documents or web pages will be collected into a single document including a bibliography. This makes it easy to collate related information, start an outline, or create a study guide. It is useful when gathering information for a project from many different sources.
