Hi @balupad14,

Couldn’t upload files because I’m a new user here.Any native PDF with highlighted text can do the work.

Thank you for the video @balupad14. I have seen this video and have seen your image stating to identify the color.

But how to define it to fetch the text that is highlighted in Uipath in means of activity.
