    To all,

    Like everyone else, I'm using iOS 7 on my iPad. One of the things I like is the fact that you can highlight words. The only problem is that the only color you can highlight with is yellow. Is there a way to pick a different color (say green) and use that? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I could not find any other color than yellow for a highlighter (and I Googled and everything!:)). All I could find was the yellow - and I searched all over my version of Pages, also.

    I'd love to be wrong, but I think yellow's all we've got. Sorry.

    Nothing to be sorry for. Thanks for your help.

    Cool. The highlight/comment feature is new. Or I somehow missed it being added in the older version of Pages.

    I don't think it was in the older version.

    My guess: It was probably added to support the collaboration via iCloud feature. You can't have the other person changing something without leaving a hint of what and why.

    Not that I know much about collaboration on documents.
