Hey everyone, we’ve added a comment below explaining the situation with this feature in more detail, to give you all a better understanding of why this is a non-trivial change. We’ve changed the status to “Planned” now that we have some actual movement towards it, as outlined below.

Appreciate your patience, especially with such sparse updates from our end. Apologies for that.

    If you highlight the text more than one time you can change the color from light yellow to dark, orange, brown, red... each time you do the highlighted text becomes darker

    Make it possible to export highlights too. Come on, this is borderline absurd that you cannot.

    yes, more colours for highlighting. Is it really that hard? Kindle allows you to do it relatively easily.

    Indeed, adding this feature would be really useful! I'm commenting here to remind you of this, as indeed, 2013 is awhile back now, so I'm worried that if you haven't done it yet it might not come for years still!
    Thanks for all you work on this awesome platform!

    it would be great if the same feature was available for notes: can change the color of the notes based on their purpose.
    When reviewing articles sometimes the reader adds notes including quotations and their meaning (summary notes), a reader might also add some notes that are more creative and include one's analysis of that particular part of the article in relation to the readers own research, work etc (analysis notes) or the note can even include question that reader have for instance when one does not understand that part of the text (question notes).
    Colouring makes it easier to separate difference types of notes for instance one can only look for analysis, or question etc etc. when going back to a specific article.

    Please, add more colors, it would improve personal and especially the annotation of documents shared among a group. It is very important, and as mentioned, the other reference manager software already has this option available.

    This post is from more than 2 years ago, what is happening with that? Are you going to add more colors? ever? That would be extremely helpful!

    Unbelievable... Why am I still using this software hoping to get new features which all other software have. I think it may be time to look elsewhere.

    For god's sake. It's 2015.
    EVERY other competitor has this feature. EVERY.
    This is not a trivial feature at all, you got to understand this.
