    Highlight in Document Imaging (2003)

    I see that there is a highlight tool in Document Imaging, but I can't get it to do what I think it should. In Word, when you highlight something, it is see-through on the screen and the printed copy. But, in Doc Imaging, when you hight light something, it obliterates it on the print out. It looks see-through on the screen though. We need a way to highlight some tiff files, and I figured this would be the way to go. Any other ideas? We can't hightlight tiffs in Word.. it won't let us. So.... help please?

    Re: Highlight in Document Imaging (2003)

    The highlighting method in Word is not going to work on a scanned image but there is a couple of ways to replicate the look. You might use an image editor such as Adobe Photoshop but I suspect you are not familiar with these sorts of tools so...
    1. <LI>Use Microsoft Word to import the graphic
      <LI>Find the Drawing Toolbar and draw a box over the area you want to highlight.
      <LI>Select the box and Right click it and select Format Autoshape
      <LI>Now go to the colours and lines tab and set zero line and select a transparency level (~70%) for the fill along with a colour of your choice
