2. Afterward, hit the Edit button and select the Highlighter icon.

3. If you want to change the color of the highlighter, tap on the color bubble at the bottom right corner, and then choose any color from the provided list. You can also adjust the opacity of the selected color.

4. Once done, tap and drag to select the text you want to highlight.

5. If you want to undo or remove certain parts of the highlighted text, you can use the Undo or Eraser option.

6. Finally, hit the Tick or Checkmark icon to save your changes, and voila, you have successfully highlighted text in the PDF document.
