Drag and drop mechanism will also do the trick – drag and drop the ebook file you want to add to the program's Library into the main window.


Open the ebook file

Double click the ebook's name in the Library if it's in the Table view or the book's thumbnail if the Library is in Bookshelf view to open the book in the reading mode.


Select and highlight text

Open the needed part of the ebook file with the text that you wish to highlight. Hover the mouse cursor over at the beginning of the text, hold the left mouse button and hover the mouse cursor over to the end of the text that should be highlighted. As soon as you properly selected the text you can release the left button of the mouse which will automatically open the text's context menu.

Pay attention at red, yellow, green, blue and purple circles right in the middle of the context menu. These circles stand for the colors of the highlighting that you can apply to the selected text. Click the preferred circle to highlight the text with the corresponding color. When it's done, the text highlighting will be added to the selected text of your ePub, MOBI or FB2 book.

All the added highlighting of a book can be accessed through the Notes panel of the book.
