In a response to the great”How to Highlight” post in 2019 (https://macmost.com/how-to-highlight-text-in-mac-pages.html), you wrote, “I can create other highlights. So, for instance, I can change the background color to yellow for this. Select it and then under Character Styles I can add another one and change this to yellow highlight. So now I can easily select some text and I can switch to yellow highlight. I can set that as a keyboard shortcut as well. So I can name that F2. Now I can change an existing green to yellow with F2. I can highlight some new text with F2 as well.”
When I try to do this, the Plus sign in the Character Styles drop-down is not dark (selectable), therefore I am not able to add another highlight color associated with another function key.
I often need/like to use two highlighting colors within a text.
