Annotating across multiple pages, is it possible?

Hello, I just received a Glo as an early Christmas present (my first ereader), and I have a question. I have been thoroughly enjoying reading, highlighting, and adding notes to the epub files that I own, but today I found I wanted to highlight a quote that fell across two pages. I assumed there had to be a way to highlight across more than one page (seems like a fairly simple feature), but I have not been able to figure it out. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

I haven't found a way to do this either, but there's a cumbersome workaround: Try decreasing the text size until your passage (hopefully) fits on one screen, highlight it, then restore the text size.

This trick won't always work, depending on the size and location of the block you need to highlight, but it's helped me a few times.

Hmmmmmm... I was afraid of that. I had thought of resizing the font, but honestly can't be bothered. I think for now I'll just highlight the beginning of the text, and when I revisit it I will go to the page and read it in full.

I hope this issue is addressed in a OS upgrade in the future.

Are there any updates concerning this?

The trick to decrease the font size works but it's far from elegant – or even practical, in some cases, specially while you're doing some research work and you have to underline huge portions of text.

agree with you that it is definitely suboptimal - it is possible in theory, as with Coolreader on my Pocketbook I could select across pages. However that is the only software I am aware of tha tis capable of doing this, and I don't think there is a port for Kobo.
