I enjoy the extensive color pallet for both the text and highlighting options offered in Excel, and the same pallet is offered for text written in Word.
I am disappointed by the limited highlighting shades. May I have more highlighting color options for Word? It would be wonderful to have the same, extensive pallet for highlighting as for the text.

It would be awesome if we could have a floating transparent little pallet for being able to highlight a text easely for those who study and read lot of information in word.
The highlighter is the last color feature that is stuck in the 1980's. It is long past time to update this feature to take full advantage of color support in Office.
This! Please, microsoft, give us more colors!!! I had to move to a different app just to use an orange highlighter ):

You can already choose from the full gamut of colours for font and shading etc. Surely it wouldn't be too hard to implement the same system for highlight colours? Being able to select a highlight colour from the same colour family as the theme of the document would be extremely helpful and more aesthetically pleasing.

I like highlighted colours but I am very disappointed by the limited highlighting colour shades. If there were some options to customize colours and make different shades out of them for highlighting then I would be glad. It would be wonderful. Both the text and highlighting would be enchanting and beautiful to look at.
