I want the user of my program to be able to hilite portions of a text
field on a given card (similar to using a yellow hilite pen on a book
page -- I have set hiliteColor to yellow) and then to have the
hilited text show up when the user returns to the card.
When I first double click on a word in a field, the selected word's
backgroundColor turns yellow, as it should. However, when I double
click on another word in the field, the yellow backgroundColor of the
previously selected word is removed and the backgroundColor of the
second selected word is yellow. I understand why this works -- a new
word has been selected. However, is it possible to write a script to
save the yellow backgroundColor of all selected words. In other
words, I would like my cards to look just like the page of a book
that has hilited text.
