I don’t understand this feature request.

What do you mean by highlight? Are you talking about ==visually highlighting text?== or are you talking about selecting text with the cursor?

What does “The highlight tags” mean? What tags? Can you walk through an example?


Also, check your formatting. You tried to use sub-bullets, but it rendered it as a flat numbered list. You need to make sure to use at least 3 or more spaces in your sub-bullets:

  1. Highlight text in preview mode
  2. Popup with options:
    1. Highlight
    2. Create note
  3. The highlight tags are added for selected text
  4. If user use app PopClip
  1. I open any note in Preview mode
  2. I select the text
  3. In this moment small popup window should appear with options to highlight the selected text
  4. Just the == tags are added around the selected text.

It is funny I copy this lists from Obsidian.

This sounds like you are asking to edit and format content in preview mode, which is a WYSIWYG editor. This is already on the roadmap for Obsidian.

There already is a command to highlight text.

Toggle highlight for selection. You can map this to a hotkey, if it is not already mapped. Mine is mapped to Cmd-Shift-H.

Like Sam said, this only works in Edit mode.

That is not what I explained. It should work in Preview mode.
