In numerous of my resources, imbedded within the text is the various numbers of highlights.  What is the purpose of this? Is it a bug?  Nothing happens when I hover over it a try a right click.  Anybody else have this problem?

It's not a problem, it's a new feature called "popular highlights". It works much like Amazon Kindle and shows you text that a number of other readers of this resource highlighted. Clicking doesn't do anything since the grey underlined text and the "xx highlights" is all info available (in current RC the "xx highlights" text is replaced by a much less annoying highlighter symbol which will give the number of highlights on mouse-over).

In case you don't want to see it, you may go to the Visual Filters menu (three-colored circle) and turn it off.

Hope this helps.

Mick, I went to the visual filters, but I don't know which box to uncheck in order to turn off the resources highlighted. Can you help me with this?

Steven - In the resource in question, click on the "three intersecting circles" icon. Uncheck the "popular highlights" box. NOTE: You can right click on "popular highlights" and turn off this feature for ALL resources.
