I have a PDF contains hundreds of pages which I have made lots of annotations in the PDF file. I would like to quickly remove all highlights from this PDF but wish to keep other annotations (such as notes that I made using the typewriter tool), It is a waste of time to manually delete those highlights one by one.
To quickly remove all highlights from a PDF file in Foxit PhantomPDF/Foxit Reader without manually delete them one by one, please do the following procedures:
1:Open Comments panel on the left corner in Foxit PhantomPDF/Foxit Reader, please choose to sort those comments by type there where you could find different types of comments have been categorized.
2:Please click on the "+" symbol before "Highlight" this type of comment to expand all highlight comments in the comments panel.
Then please place your mouse on the last highlight comment and single click on it to make it to be selected, then keep pressing the "Shift" key on your keyboard while clicking on the first highlight comment under ‘Highlight’ in the comments panel ,then you will find that all of the highlights are selected.
3: Right click on those selected highlight comments, click on "delete" option in the pop-up context menu to delete all of them.
