I was playing around with highlighting on my Android phone to help answer a user's question.

I ended up with a bunch of ugly garbage formatting in my Bible.

I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. So I had to go over to my PC (where it had synced already) and delete it there.

If there is no way to delete highlights on the Android app, please add it!

You definitely can delete highlights on Android. If you're using the current stable version, there are two different ways to do it: 1) Tap on the highlight and click "Edit Note" (or "Edit Highlight", whichever one appears) then there's a delete button at the bottom of the editor. Or, 2) Go to the Documents screen and open the notes document that contains the highlights and swipe the highlights to the left or right to delete them.

If you're using the current beta version, it's a little simpler. You can just tap on the highlight and click the "X" button.

Ah, thanks, Drew! That works indeed. I had not noticed that option, because I hadn't tapped on the highlight but rather pressed, and I only saw the same menu that came up when I created the highlight in the first place.

I just had to search for this answer.  To select "edit notes" to delete a highlight, is not intuitive for a user.
