How do you highlight vertically in PDF?

I’ve never had a need to do this but I just tried it using Foxit PDF Reader and found it surprisingly easy to do. First I selected the Highlight tool then put my cursor slightly above and to the left of the first item, clicked and held the left button while dragging to just below and to the right of the last item. When I released the left button on the mouse all items in the selection box were highlighted. I did note that full words were highlighted even when those words went past the boundaries of the selection box.

Highlight PDF: All You Need to Know

To highlight only a paragraph, click above the first paragraph and drag right to the left, so you reach the highlighted paragraph. I will use this method to select just an image I want to get the background colors of a section of text. Then I used my mouse wheel and clicked left to highlight the highlighted paragraph, held down my down the left mouse button while dragging down to get to the last paragraph I wanted to be highlighted.  Then by holding down my right mouse button and dragging to the right along the edge to get to the next paragraph I wanted to be highlighted along the left margin. In my first paragraph this gets my text back in check off mode. The other advantage for me has been that I will never have to go through the entire selection again. This technique is really a good way.
