Here's the scenario:

I have a palette built specifically for books.  
I create a note/highlight file for each book.
I created a Yellow Highlighter called "important" for that book palette.
Apparently when using my phone, I have been using the generic yellow highlighter rather than my palette specific yellow highlighter called "important".  

Is there an easy way to find all of these Yellow highlighted items and mass change them to my palette specific one?  I tried to search for yellow highlighter with an "*", but it takes forever and doesn't pull anything back.  

Also, I want to be able to find all my highlights for a specific highlighter pen across all books and it doesn't seem like there is an easy way to do this.  For example, I have a highlighter pen for quotes.  I want to see all "quote" highlights across all my books.  

I read the wiki, but didn't see anything except for the search.

Not that I know of but I could see great benefit to this.

You can do this by opening the Highlighting Tool, right-clicking the "Yellow" highlight (or "Yellow Highlighter", as appropriate) and choosing Restyle Annotations. Then, from the list that appears, choose the "important" highlighting style.

Sorry, there isn't currently a quick way to do this today, but it's on our list to add in a future version of the software.
