Wordlight is a plugin for SDL Trados Studio 2019 that provides features for highlighting selected text in the editor with a chosen color. The highlight formatting is persisted in all target files but only used in compatible formats that support this feature, such as Word and PDF when generating the target native file. It's important to understand this and ensure you remove the highlighting before creating target files where it's not supported to avoid unwanted complications in the native application.
The Wordlight plugin has as number of keyboard shortcut actions that you can adapt to fit your needs at any time.

Note: only part of the existing formatting (e.g. the formatting closing tag </cf>) is within the selection range.
