dhodges007: How are you highlighting text? This macro works if you use text highlighting (next to the text color button on the Home ribbon). If you are using a pen highlighter to draw on the text, then it won't find them.

I have tried several times to accomplish what I need with this Macro and it keeps giving me the same error: No highlighted text found in Current Page.  I am doing a lot of research and I have both used the "clipper" to import the page or article that I am using and I also tried copying and pasting from the website into onenote. Is there any way to extract the text after I highlight it? Thanks in advance! Denny
