    I emphatically endorse this suggestion-request! I usually use 6 different highlight colors when I read PDF files, having different meanings for each. Word does not allows me to do this, because the set of 15 colors it offers is extremely bad chosen and only 5 of them are practically usable, because 11 of them are too dark to be used to highlight.

    In fact, it is pretty obvious that, if only a small number of highlight colors are offered, all of them, except 1, should be LIGHT colors, COLORS THAT DON'T HIDE THE TEXT BEHIND, since there is no sense in hiding a text when the aim is to emphasize it. Only 1 dark color is needed, for the aim of indeed hiding some text.

    It would be sufficient 15 highlight colors if 14 of them were well chosen light colors. But, since there have already being offered those useless 10 dark colors and the simple elimination of them might arise some compatibility problems, it seems that the solution is indeed to increase the set of highlight colors. I suggest the inclusion of : 2 light oranges (one somewhat stronger than the other, but without hiding the text), a light brown, a lighter blue and a light pink. These colors would meat my usual highlighting in PDF files. Note that some of these colors are common offers in the market of physical highlight pens.

    Other option is to allow the user to define by himself the 15 available highlight colors, using an usual dialog with a whole spectrum of colors. In this case, it is important to also allow the creation of macros to each available color, which is already possible actually with the colors that have being offered.
