useful but the html added uses some color names (cyan, gold, etc.) : as a consequence my correspondents cannot see the hilite ( messaging clients or webmails ) except Lime, Yellow, Fuchsia , ... ---> should use instead something like <span style="background-color: rgb(255, 215, 0);"> except for the 16 colors of html4.1 ( https://www.w3.org/TR/html4/types.html#h-6.5 )

Dear gaido,
Thank you for this valuable hint!
I will start to work on the next version of my Add-on to improve this.

Update 13.05.2022:
Version 6.1.0 is now available and should eliminate this problem.

I'm using BetterBird and this add-on doesn't seem to be working for me. I do not see the button "Mark" appear on the top right of the screen. I just can't highlight anything. The add-on does appear in my settings correctly.

Post-Review Comment: The developer's suggestion worked! I have now changed my rating to reflect this outcome.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.0). 

In some cases the button does not appear automatically after the Add-on installation (I don’t know why). Then you can right-click on the toolbar, choose “Customize …”, then the Mark button should appear in the list and can be dragged to the toolbar.

Excellent add-on! In the past I used go use "Highlighter" which unfortunately no longer works. So, this is a real life-saver.

This add-on seems to work out of the box with TB 91.2.0 ! Thanks. Just what I needed!

Sehr einfach zu nutzendes Addon. Tut alles was es soll. Entwickler ist sehr hilfsbereit. Hatten Probleme: Button «Mark» war nicht sichtbar. Workaround => Klicke mit rechter Maustaste auf andere Buttons in der Button-Zeile (Kontextmenu) > «Anpassen» > Button «Mark» an gewünschte Stelle ziehen > Fertig!
Super angenehm damit zu arbeiten.

Works, but controls are a bit obtuse, having to read instructions to learn to use the correct combination of mouse clicks and Ctrl/Shift keys to make it work. Having a drop-down menu option for the Mark button to set/unset colours and access a help screen would make it easier. (There was a highlighter add-on for Mozilla SeaMonkey Messenger that worked much this way.) Gmail has the highlighter feature now inbuilt; Thunderbird should consider doing so, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.0). 

Currently it is not possible to set up a drop-down menu for the Mark button. (See also https://thunderbird.topicbox.com/groups/addons/T3bbe7dd7c1833dcb/drop-down-menu-option-for-composeaction-button). Maybe it will be possible in Thunderbird version 90+. This said, would you reconsider the rating for my Add-on?
I agree that Thunderbird should implement highlighting as standard feature and make my Add-on superfluous.

C-E, love your apps. I have a small error I wanted to correct. Under the DETAILS tab, the first sentence; ""Highlighting" is achieved be changing the background colour of the selected text.". Shouldn't the "be" be "by"?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.0). 

Thank you - makes me happy! :-)
And thank you for reporting the typing error, is corrected now.

Wonderful addition to T-Bird.

One suggestion: add an option (attached to the highlight) to bold text and change the text color to White, i.e. clicking on the "Mark" changes text and adds highlight. A darker Textmarker color hides the normal text -- I like Red with bold white text.

Merci aux développeurs de me faciliter la vie, avant je faisais un copier/coller depuis Word :-(

Jetzt kann ich mit gutem Gewissen 5 sterne geben, nachdem ich eine Hilfe-mail erhielt. Vieleicht kann mann die Beschreibung ergänzen dass die Funktion nur im "Verfassen"Modus aktiv ist. Es ist eine komfortable Funktion um Text passagen zu Markieren.

Hello, this is not a criticism, this addon is really very practical! No, what I was thinking is that it would be nice to be able to color parts of the received messages as well, it would be extremely useful to highlight the important parts of these messages, especially if they are long. Is this in the future possibilities of this addon?
Thank's a lot.
Best,
Daniel.

It is not possible to edit RECEIVED e-mails, for obvious reasons, so this is nothing my Add-on could do.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can see this being useful.

Edit: On using the addon for a bit longer, I've decided to raise my rating from 4 to 5 stars. Kudos to the dev.

Bravo et merci pour cette add-on que j'attendais depuis longtemps.
Je n'avais mis initialement que 4 * car une chose me gênait : quand on surlignait un mot en cours d'écriture, le texte suivant restait surligné et je ne savais pas comment l'annuler ... (en fait, je n'ai pas pu reproduire ce dysfonctionnement !)
Comment revient-on au style fond de caractère transparent ??? Un fonctionnement style interrupteur serait appréciable, ou l'ajout d'une "couleur" "transparent" ?
Votre réponse me convient parfaitement.
Quelques bizarreries trouvées mais contournables.
Superbe add-on et grand merci pour votre réactivité !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.1). 

Cher Christophe,
Je ne sais pas exactement ce que vous voulez dire avec « le texte suivant reste surligné » - pouvez-vous écrire un e-mail à [email protected] et expliquer cela plus en détail, s’il vous plaît?
Dans tous les cas, pour annuler un surlignage, maintenir la touche « Maj » enfoncée et cliquer sur le bouton « Surligner », la couleur de fond du texte sélectionné redevient celle du document.

Aah, I've been waiting for this so long!
It's rather great. The only thing I don't like is the unpleasant sound when changing the colour. How can I switch that off?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.0). 

Currently the sound cannot be switched off - I will introduce an option to switch it off in the next version.
Edit 16.01.2021: Version 4.5.0 now has the option to switch off the sound.

I must state that I am revising my original estimate. Now my assessment is the most positive. This is due to the fact that after my feedback that the adon does not work, the developer contacted me. He offered several solutions to the problem and everything worked. This is a wonderful adon and I really liked the approach of the developer, many thanks to him.

Hi C-E,

Thanks for replying so quick! I appreciate.

2 issues :

(1) Didn't understand how to use the same thread and reply to u. So writing a new review

(2) I saw ur bug description under id :
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1681153
It says keyboard shortcut is currently unable to auto-click a thunderbird composer button. But, what if a way can be discovered or invented to use a new keyboard shortcut to invoke action #1 of the TextMarker extension? (assuming actions like action#1, action#2, etc exist for each thunderbird extension, and assuming action#1 of TextMarker extension highlights the selected text in current composer window with the current color)

Please reply
Thanks
Madhukiran

Unfortunately your assumption is not correct - there is no way to use a keyboard shortcut for the Mark button. We have to wait until the bug is fixed and a new Thunderbird version is released.

At first the message compose window was small so I did not see the "Mark" button. When I enlarged the window I saw it. Thank you very much for the most significant upgrade of the add-on in version 4.0 that allows you easily use different colors to mark email text and also delete text marking. Thank you very much as well for the significant update in version 4.1.6 . Thank you so much for your wonderful add-on.

Very useful add-on, I would say essential, extremely simple to use but filling an important gap of Thunderbird new versions . I have just installed it and tested on Thunderbird 78.5.1. x64 with Windows 10 20H2. It makes the highlighted text well visible also when receiving the email on my phone (Android 10 - Outlook and Gmail).
I saw no specific command to cancel an highlighting done; just an 'undo' however does the job.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

New unmark function in version 3.0: hold "Shift" + click "Mark!"-Button to set background of the selection to white.
