Is it possible to print a drawing with certain text been highlighted like in Microsoft Word ?
I tried your method but the default hatch colour is black. Is it possible to change the colour? Please note that I'm using SolidWorks 2016.
I'm not aware of any way to do that directly from a SolidWorks drawing. You can save it as a pdf and then highlight text if you have the Adobe software.
You can use layers in drawings for individual items (balloons, notes, dimensions, etc.) which can have the colors changed as desired. The drawing can be saved as pdf and work just as well?
I don't want to change the colour of the text. I want the text to be highlighted in yellow when printed.
Adding to the constructive suggestion, you can toggle colors on and off as desired (prior to printing):
For highlighting as desired on printing- as Glenn Schroeder noted above, you likely can't.
Perhaps one of the API gurus here could help...
You could place the text, then put a box around the text......then use Area Hatch/Fill to fill the box with yellow.
The text shows up over it.

I don't do a lot of hatching, but I believe you'll need to have a Layer set up with the desired color, and then have this Layer active when starting the Hatch command.
I changed the colour of the hatch by using the command below.
Thanks Dan and Vladimir. I figured out how to change the colour.
Something like that?
