Default Can't remove highlight

I can't remove the highlighting from certain sections in my word document -
I've tried selecting and highlighting all the text and then removing the
highlighting, but these sections stay yellow. Any suggestions?

Thumbs up Answer: Can't remove highlight

Sure, I can help you with that! Here are a few steps you can try to remove the highlighting from your Word document:
  1. First, make sure that you have selected the text that you want to remove the highlighting from. You can do this by clicking and dragging your cursor over the text, or by using the "Select All" command (Ctrl+A on a PC or Command+A on a Mac) to select all of the text in the document.
  2. Once you have selected the text, go to the "Home" tab in the Word ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Look for the "Font" section of the ribbon, and click on the arrow in the bottom right corner of the section to open the "Font" dialog box.
  4. In the "Font" dialog box, look for the "Highlight" option and make sure that it is set to "No Color." If it is already set to "No Color," try selecting a different color and then setting it back to "No Color" to see if that clears the highlighting.
  5. If the highlighting still won't go away, try selecting the text again and then right-clicking on it. Look for the "Clear Formatting" option in the context menu that appears, and click on it to remove any formatting (including highlighting) from the selected text.

I hope that helps!

Maybe the color has been applied as shading and not as highlight. Try whether
you can remove the color via Format Borders and Shading Shading tab.

I have same problem. Tried clearning the shading and the highlighting and
neither works. My text still stays highlighted. When I "reveal formatting"
under the font section is stays "Shading: Clear (Yellow)". So I'm selecting
clear for shading but it's leaving it yellow anyway? I don't understand.
Does it have to do with the fact that it's a bulleted list? I'm just baffled.

Is it possible that the document has been Protected & that the Shading is an
attribute of a Style you don't have permission to modify?

Go to the Review Tab, click the Protect Document button & see what the Task
Pane has to say. You may be able to remove the Shading by applying a
different Style.

Clear just means that there's no pattern. It also means that what you're
seeing is not highlighting (which you would remove by selecting None for
highlighting) but shading. Go to Format | Borders and Shading and choose No
Fill on the Shading tab.

I'm seeing the same problem... It's in a table, and any text that is entered
appears highlighted with yellow.

I've set "No Fill";
I've set "Shading" to "Clear";
Reveal Codes shows: Pattern: Clear (Yellow) - Clear
There doesn't appear to be any document Protection in effect.

The entire table (3col x 17rows) has the same attributes.

I also tried: "Table Properties" | "Borders & Shading" |

It's also set to:

Fill: No Fill
Pattern: Clear
Apply to: Table

When you are on the Shading tab, make sure that you check the "Apply to"
settings. The shading may be applied to Text rather than Cell.

I never was able to get rid of it manually. I tried "Apply to:
Table|Cell|etc." with no change.

I did, however, copy the text of the macro that someone created to get rid
of the problem and that worked. Now, if the logic of that macro could just
be available as a manual process.....

Thanks!

Hello,

Are these suggestions you are providing for 97-2003? I'm using 2007 and
trying to highlight only the text in a numbered list and it highlights the
number also. Can you provide a solution for this?
Thanks

If the paragraph mark is selected (which it will be, no matter how carefully
you try to avoid it), the number will be formatted. The only solution is to
select *just* the paragraph mark and remove the shading.

If you get really frustrated (as I did) you can select all, open a new
document, paste special, and remove formating. Voila!

I had a similar problem.
What I did was I copied a text from another cell that was not highlighted and pasted it on the highlighted cell. The new text pasted did not have any highlight so I can just modify the contents to match the previously highlighted text.

Hi,

I can't remove the highlighting from certain sections in my word
document -


I had a similar problem.
What I did was I copied a text from another cell that was not highlighted
and pasted it on the highlighted cell.
The new text pasted did not have any highlight so I can just modify the
contents to match the previously highlighted text.


may be, the text is not "highlighted". Instead, a shadow has been applied
(Borders and Shading).

old post, i know, but maybe it has to do with the text being highlighted due to having a comment? Look on the right to see if a comment has been linked to the highlighted text. If so, then the only way to remove the highlight is to "resolve" or delete the comment.

This was the case of my frustration until I relized it.

Default Can't remove highlight

Highlighting applied via the Highlighting tool on the Home tab can be
removed as follows: Select the whole document by pressing Ctrl+A and
then click the arrow on the Text Highlight Color button and choose the
"No Color."

To remove font and paragraph shading you can run the following macro:

Sub ClearAllShadingFromDoc()
'Macro created by Stefan Blom, MVP, January 2015

With ActiveDocument.Content.ParagraphFormat.Shading
.Texture = wdTextureNone
.ForegroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
End With

With ActiveDocument.Content.Font.Shading
.Texture = wdTextureNone
.ForegroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
End With
End Sub


For assistance, see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm.

Sub ClearAllShadingFromDoc()
'Macro created by Stefan Blom, MVP, January 2015

With ActiveDocument.Content.ParagraphFormat.Shading
.Texture = wdTextureNone
.ForegroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
End With

With ActiveDocument.Content.Font.Shading
.Texture = wdTextureNone
.ForegroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
.BackgroundPatternColor = wdColorAutomatic
End With
End Sub

Finally, an easy solution!

I didn't even realize I had a light shading on until I got counted off on one of my papers. I realized it was a shading issue, but you cannot un-shade the entire document at one. Word forces you to highlight each shaded portion at a time. Any non-shaded characters or spaces that you highlight will prevent Word from removing the shading from the entire document if there are any breaks in it. This macro gets around that easily!

you must have solved your problem by now, but for future troubled folks like i was, when you go to borders and shading, select clear fill, apply to text not to paragraph. it worked for me!

If you get really frustrated (as I did) you can select all, open a new
document, paste special, and remove formating. Voila!


Finally an answer that worked!!

I was having the same problem, here's what you do! Highlight the problem column go under edit and find & replace. Then delete any number/text that may be in the Find section.

Hope this helps!

As I was typing on google keep (a google app that you can utilize for notes and things to do that you need to remember) I accidentally hit some buttons and it highlighted every letter or space I clicked on. If you have this problem, simply click caps lock and then click it again to turn caps lock off and then type again. This will disable the highlight mode. Hopefully this works for you and if not I hope you find another way that will help you solve this problem. - AW

Sometimes it also happens cause of the comments made, just resolve all the comments and the highlight will go away.

I had this issue and i couldn't even change the color from yellow to anything else. there were no comments, track changes was off.

in the end I selected a section that was not highlighted then hit ctrl+shift+C
then select the section that is highlighted and hit ctrl+shift+V

highlight was all gone

hope this helps someone

When I highlight the text, the highlight goes higher than normal and looks weird. Any suggestions?
