|HILITERL - Add highlighting to redlined text|
This macro adds highlighting to all redlined text found in the document. It optionally prints the document and then removes the highlighting it added to the redline.
This is one way to darken redlined text.
Why use it?
On some black-and-white printers redlined text (including Inserted/Deleted text used in File, Document Compare/Review) shows up on the printed page
Here are a couple of ways to deal with this problem.
1. Adjust WordPerfect's printer settings
If printed redline text shows up as standard or slightly faded text, it may be because of the following problem. From Corel's Knowledge Base (for WP10, but it may apply to other versions):
If this doesn't work, try HiLiteRL.
2. Use the HiLiteRL macro
This macro adds highlighting on top of all redlined text, optionally prints the document, then removes the highlighting (only) that it added in the first stage. This should produce the desired result on a b&w printer.
[Note: You can adjust the color of the highlighting -- which can affect the intensity of the gray color on the printout -- and several menu defaults. See the instructions at the top of the macro's code.]
Other highlighting — that is, any existing highlighting that was not imposed on top of redlined text — will remain unaffected, because during the cleanup stage the macro code searches for [Highlight][Redln] and [Redln][Highlight] code pairs and removes only the Highlight codes at those locations. However, see the second note below.
