i use highlights a moderately high amount. Some texts get cluttered with them. My request is two-fold:

1) be able to toggle ALL highlights off/on, and

2) a tic-box by every highlight possibility in the program to toggle it off/on

imagine the power of being able to shut off all markups/highlights except one, to follow that theme without the clutter and distraction of all the others. That would be cool. For teaching I AirPlay Logos onto the big screen and would love to shut off whatever I am not talking about. What a benefit!

thanks for listening

Bearing in mind Highlights are stored in Notes files you can turn them all off for a particular resource from the View Settings menu

Also, as the screenshot shows, you can have multiple notesfiles and - if set up properly - can have specific highlights in specific notes files which should give you what you ask 

Does the help at all?

Thank you Graham, it does for the overall toggle for a resource, I will try it. The other work-around seems unbearable. Iā€™d rather holdout for a program mod šŸ™„ Thanks for responding

Fair enough

But worth noting there is a major rewrite going on to the notes / highlighting subsystem - this was initially seen in the web app, is currently available in beta form on the desktop and will at some stage rollout to the mobile environment.

So I wouldn't expect any changes to how the current system works and we will need to see what the updated one brings / makes possible.
