Fast highlighting?

On my K3 it was easy and fast to highlight.

On the K4 I have do do more clicks. Excessive highlighting becomes a nightmare.

Any way get a 3 click highlighting on this device?

Alternative software?

If highlighting is important to you, perhaps consider getting a Kindle Touch or a PW? This is something that's massively easier on a touch screen.

Is the highlighting function on the Touch and the PW exactly the same?

I have to say, highlighting is a lot easier on the PW. I never bothered doing it with my old K3K but now I do it quite a bit.

My K3 frequently freezes for about 3 minutes when I annotate or highlight. Does the same thing happen on the Paperwhite?

No. The PW has a much, much faster CPU.

That's quite an advantage. How easy is the onscreen keyboard for annotating books?

It's very fast and easy on both the PW and the touch.

I find using the soft keyboard on the PW/Touch to be much faster than using the physical keyboard on the K3. It's much easier tapping the screen than pressing the rubber "keys" on the K3.

Thanks all of you that's really reassuring since the reviews on the latest kindle keyboard seem to indicate that it's pretty fragile and I really want to be able to highlight and annotate

Could be said the highlighting on the PW is double as fast than on the Touch?
