Question How to highlight in Moon+Reader without pop up menu?

I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer to this and I didn't find a ready answer on their site (well, they really don't have any meaningful guide at all that I could find).

I use the "select text" feature almost exclusively for highlighting text (later to copy into notes). I can do this, and have configured it to do so on a long press. But that time-saving feature is of little merit since no matter what I do, there is no quick way to just select the text, apply the highlight and continue reading.

Instead, a pop-up menu with different options of highlights always comes up. It also has an option to, for instance, highlight every instance of the selected text in the rest of the book.

This is, in the larger context, definitely a first world problem, but it is very, very irritating when one is trying to get work done. Am I just missing a setting, or is this a functionality that Moon Reader doesn't have?

Combined with my inability to sync my tags from Calibre (it seems to select some from the original metadata and then some of mine, go figure), I'd gladly pay for a different option if there is an app that does these things better, although it's my understanding that Moon Reader is considered "the best." One would hope that "the best" would have a tutorial, at the very least.

Would love some guidance if anyone can help. Maybe I'm just missing a lot here. Thanks much.
