Hi, I was highlighting some phrases in preview and suddenly from the next line, the highlight colours went dark and of course, I didn't change any settings. Does anyone know how to put them back to original light colours? Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome.

You can change the highlighting color by clicking the Highlight button here and choosing a color.

OK...

-What version of OS X?
-What version of Preview?
-Do you mean remove the highlighting, or change the colors to a lighter yellow and a lighter purple?

OK, thanks.

I don't think there is a way to change the colors. Not sure why they changed on you - as you can see in Sierra, as you highlight, the color is lighter. When you release the mouse/trackpad button, the colors darken.

Was this document previously edited with a previous version of OS X/Preview?

Sorry, don't know of a cause or a solution. The highlight colors in preview on my Mac act as I stated above.

You could try and close/reopen the document to see if the colors become uniform throughout the document.

There used to be a workaround in older versions of OS X/Preview, that would allow you to change the colors, but it doesn't work in Sierra.
