HD v2.1 highlights not showing in off-white theme

Status: Under Review

It seems that creating a highlight in the "off white" theme (bottom left selection) will end up in the highlight not showing on the screen.  Also, when creating a highlight in any theme and then switching to another theme, then the highlight will disappear also.


The highlight just does not appear on screen.  It does show in the Content listing, and if you tap on a phrase you know is highlighted it will bring up the menu to remove/add note/change color.


Current workaround is to just not use "off white" or not switch themes but I would assume it should just work   :smileyhappy:

I have the same issue as above and also I was highlighting text in a book I have been reading.  I change my highlights to yellow.  After an hour, I closed out.  I opened the book on my HD+ this the next day to continue and everything I highlighted last night changed to red or black.  Anything previous to last night was still yellow.  I continued reading and highlighting this am in yellow.  Highlights appeared to be yellow.  At lunch time at work on I went on Nook for PC and opened the book.  Same deal with last nights highlights- red or black. Also the stuff I highlighted this am was red.


Also, this am, if I tried to remove the highlights from the HD+, the reader froze up.  Also the reader is crashing.   I have tried a soft reset.  The off color highlights are still there.  I haven't had time to do substantial reading since the soft reset so I don't know if the crashing issue is cleared up.

I too can't highlight I was told by b&n to deregister and register, I dont think this is the answer than I loose all my book shelf as well. I think they just need to fix the problem..

So, it's been a year since this problem was reported ( whatever update in Feb 2013 was numbered.) Any chance of it moving beyond the "review" stage?
