If Fast Highlighting is on:

To highlight text, select the text you would like highlighted by holding your finger down on text while selecting the text by moving your finger over the text you would like to highlight and releasing it. This action will use the first Highlighter on your My Highlights list or the last Highlighter used.

To highlight text, select the text you would like highlighted by holding your finger down on the text while selecting the text by moving your finger over the text you would like to highlight and releasing it.

 

Highlighting without Fast Highlighting on, you will see an options menu when you release your finger.   The Highlight will default to the highlight at the top of your My Highlight list or the last highlight used.
