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.

    the possibility to highlight in several colours would be highly appreciated. maybe a simple and ergonomic way for users would be to automatically switch to orange after the same text was highlighted twice, or red after the same text was highlighted three times etc. :-) (Indeed, highlighting several times the same text just makes it dimmer and is not really useful; changing hue only might improve it and even be quite useful IMO).

    Now it's 2015 and still no other color. This is NOT trivial at all, because when you actually make your research for a paper in Mendeley, you really need at least 2 colours to use. Otherwise you get a lot of golden text, but no real keywords. More colours is desired, but at least 2. It is a small, but very important thing.

    Would still like more colors! And an underline option! More ways to annotate text would be highly desirable. The inability to do simple annotations is making me think about switching to a different platform.

  • Julia MathisJulia Mathis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, more colors would be great to know which part of the text to use for which point in the paper…
    I would, for example, need at least 4 different colors… ;)

    Yes, more colors!! I've waited for this for a few years and can't believe we still can't do it.

    Is there any update on this available? It's been almost a year, and it seems obvious that this is a key feature everyone is requesting.

  • Mackenzie CatronMackenzie Catron commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's been almost two years since this (actually very helpful) response was posted by the Mendeley Admin. Come on, Mendeley! Your users clearly want this, let's see a solution!

    Yes please, more colors so I can differentiate, what is important, what I question, what I find odd, and what I think is a good idea for future work
