I'm thankful to anyone who helps me to work better in TB but although your add on installed without a hitch, it doesn't seem to work with my version of TB (60.9.0 32 bits)
Since André's answer, I checked TB settings and I am composing messages in HTML already so something is blocking it in my latest version of TB

This is strange, I tried in Thunderbird 60 / Linux, and it works.
You need to compose the message in HTML, of course.

Andre, your addon is really great to me, use it for years, could you please consider to upgrade it for TB68. It is shame that TB doesn't have this option integrated by default...
May we collect some donations?

Hello tomx,
Thanks for the review. I will check the status of the documentation to create add-ons on Thunderbird.
If the documentation is up to date and helpful, I will give it a try.

EDIT: I am working on an updated version, in my free time. Let's see how long it will take.

This is a great help. Used it for years but not compatible with TB version 68.1. Can this be updated ?. Or any alteratives ?. I really need this

Ne fonctionne plus avec la nouvelle mise à jour de Thunderbird 68.1.0 du 11.09.2019

In my opinion, this add-on is a necessity. It serves an important and fundamental function of composing emails. It is simple to use and does exactly what it claims.

It has always dumbfounded me why Thunderbird cannot highlight portions of text, but rather changes the background of the entire email when you highlight a section of text and choose a different background color. This extension mitigated that problem.

Recent changes to Thunderbird have rendered this extension unusable until the developer has the availability and documentation he needs to make required changes. I offer my appreciation and thanks to the developer. This is truly a "must have" extension, for me.

Awesome plug-in!!
Very nice idea elaborated very nicely! Easy to use and I like the icons.

Please look into the following three bullets and I will change the 4 starts to 5 :)

*1 Since installing it my UNDO (CtrZ and in menu) have stopped working. Writing text anr highlighting works flawlessly, but undo function does not longer work in Mozilla Thunderbird.

*2 Since installing this plugin, the cursor appears to be slower both in movement via the arrow keys as well as it blinks slower for some reason. I have a very fast hexacore pc so its not my hardware.

*3 Please add more color ranges, light pastel light colors suffice, not darker ones.

It does what it says on the tin. I use highlighter all the time and this is terrific

Seems to work as intended. Using on Thunderbird 60.7.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 18.04 .

Shows up on my toolbar but does absolutely nothing. Glitch somewhere. (Quantum 7.0.4, Thunderbird 60.7.2 on Windows 7, composing on beige background and signature containing images).

Extremely useful and impeccable implementation.

Please Mozilla team, get André his documentation in one place... imagine the gift to the community for the next and the next and the next !
I know it is hard and no one wants to do it, but you would leverage the entire world of open source contributors.
Just do it !

Sometimes the most simple things in life make me happy. So glad this author created, published and maintains this add-on. Kudos.

very good application !
Just a problem : it does not work when a word is underlined.
Is it, too, possible to go back ?
Thanks !

Très belle extension que j'utilise depuis longtemps.
La mise à jour nr semble pas règler tous les problèmes sur TB 60.3.1.
On ne peut annuler un surlignage.
Il faut parfois recliquer sur le mot qui passe en police bleu clair puis recliquer pour avoir le surlignage.
Comportement bizarre et assez instable.
Comptant sur vous pour le rendre aussi efficace qu'auparavant.
Merci d'avance
EDIT : désinstaller et ré-installer règle quelques dysfonctionnements mais pas tous (annulation surlignage)

EDIT :
Bonjour,

merci pour votre réponse.
je ne suis malheureusement pas en capacité de vous venir en aide...
Mais l'extension est super, je conserve même si l'ergonomie n'est plus au top.
Vous n'y êtes pour rien :-)
Cordialement

Je suis vraiment désolé, je connais tous ces problèmes.
Le malheur, c'est que la documentation de référence de l'API de Thunderbird n'est soit plus à jour, soit incomplète, soit tous les liens sont cassés.
Du coup, j'utilise un parseur HTML maison au lieu d'utiliser une API native pour surligner.
Si vous avez un lien vers une page de doc à jour, je suis preneur.
Lorsque j'ai crée cette extension, je pensais vraiment que ce serait temporaire, et que l'équipe de Mozilla allait intégrer une telle fonctionnalité par défaut...Que neni.

This tool is indispensable for everyone, who writes Mails (I think).
Thanks for updating!
And yes: it should be natural for an up-to-date Mail-Programm.

I guess I took it for granted just how much I have come to depend on this add on for my business emails. It's no longer supported with the new Thunderbird Ver 60.3.0. It's driving me nuts that I can't use it any longer. PLEASE hook us back up ASAP. Thx!

Hello,
Thanks for the review.
I have updated the addon, it is on review now.
To be honest, I thought that highlighting text would be integrated in one of the new version of Thunderbird.
