As an assessor or someone who works in an assessment, you most likely highlight quite a bit. Have you ever encountered a situation where you need to extend a highlight to the following page, and could not find a way to do it, so you end up making two separate highlights for a proof or a policy? Well, we’ll let you in on a little secret, there’s a nifty little trick you can use to jump across a page break and stretch a highlight between two pages.

Follow these quick steps:

1. Locate the assessment:

4. Navigate to the page break and begin highlighting:

 

5. After you complete your highlight, but before you click save, drag the lower half of the highlight to the next page *It won’t appear to be highlighting anything, but it is, I promise!

This trick will work for all documents displayed as a browser-friendly PDF. It will not only make it easier to manage highlight, but will also help speed up the accreditation process for assessors. If you ever find yourself in a bind and need to highlight over page breaks, just follow these simple instructions and you’re all set.
