Persistent Highlights

With Persistent Highlights, you can enter keyword terms and have them highlighted in the document viewer without the need to run a search.

This option is available under Project Settings > Persistent Highlights. It is a great way to persistently highlight terms you'll want to quickly see in documents and speed up review.

You can bulk add, delete, or update the color of multiple highlights at once.

Search Highlights

When you search a term through a text search, the term will automatically be highlighted when opening up search results in the document viewer. 

Once you run your search, you can navigate into the document viewer, and the searched for term will appear in the highlights dropdown: 

Wildcard searching

The following wildcards can be used in the persistent highlights and search highlights:

  • Multiple character wildcard searches using the asterisk, *

    • Example: bean* will return beans, beanies, beanbags, etc.

  • Single character wildcard searches use the question mark, ? 

    • Example: b?an will return bean, bran, bian, etc.

A few things to note:

  • It will highlight words or phrases and is restricted to letters, numbers, and the following characters: $%-.+=,#?!@*

  • It is not case-sensitive.

  • The maximum length for the highlight is 100 characters.
