Good Morning,

I'm trying this product and I'm finding it very useful, but I can't find an example to highlight a word in a pdf document page and then it appears as an annotation (like the tool used in acrobat to highligt a word).

I need to do it because the application I'm developping is for finding a few words in pdf documents and get them highlighted.

Thanks a lot for your response.

Hi José,

Thank you for your interest in Essential PDF.

I regret to let you know, currently Essential PDF doesn’t support to find a word in a PDF document and highlight the word. But you can draw highlight annotation in a PDF document by using PdfTextMarkupAnnotation. Kindly refer the sample code snippet which demonstrates of drawing highlight annotation in a PDF document,

//Create a pdf textmarkup annotation
PdfTextMarkupAnnotation markupAnnotation = new PdfTextMarkupAnnotation("Markup annotation", "Markup annotation with highlight style", markupText, new PointF(175, 40), pdfFont);
markupAnnotation.TextMarkupColor = new PdfColor(Color.LightBlue);
markupAnnotation.TextMarkupAnnotationType = PdfTextMarkupAnnotationType.Highlight;
//Add this annotation to a new page.

Please do find the sample from the below specified location and let me know if you need any further assistance.
