Highlighting text in Calibre?

Hello fellow Calibre users,

Afaik, there's no way to highlight text in Calibre. Am I right?

Is there a comparable ePub/AZW3 reader that can let me highlight text and save it? I wish there was a Windows version of Moon+ Reader Pro for PCs.. :-/

Also when reading a book using Calibre, I used to use "Right Arrow" key for moving to the next page and "Left Arrow" key for the previous page and currently they don't seem to work..

Should I set them up in "Settings". I don't like the page turns using "Page Up" and "Page Down" keys

Thanks so much for your time..

It is easy to 'Highlight' text in the book viewer.
It is doing something with that highlight.

You can copy
You can Google
You can Bookmark

I suspect you want some sort of annotation feature?

Thanks td. Sorry I wasn't clear.

Like using a highlighter to highlight important text.

Adobe Acrobat lets me do this to a PDF (Yellow highlighting) and save the file just like how it looks now:

You can not do it (yet) on-the-fly in the viewer, but you can do it in "edit book" via option "change background color". I use it to make permanent markings in book texts.

Just tried it.. Gosh, it's not as easy as I had thought

For PDFs, I usually highlight and save the text and re-read just those for exams..

Would love to have this functionality for ePub and AZW3. Any ideas, any alternative programs, anyone?

@adrenaline - Its for this reason that many people continue to use PDF for reference and study books. I have a number of different readers on my desktop and Android tablet, that show highlights, callouts and comments etc irrespective of where I enter them.

One of the advantages one often gets from de-facto standards set by dominant industry player(s) is interoperability - i.e. whatever Adobe does, the rest follow.

SO is there still no way to annotate excerpts - and preferably also then extract them with some reference point?
