Wondering if anyone has discovered the way to delete a note and highlighting in the android mobile app. I looked through the topics but couldn't find one specifically for the android mobile app where there is no, Cntrl-Alt-Delete. Thanks.

On iOS there are three ways, and I assume it is the same on Android:

1) Long press the highlight or note indicator. Press the trash can icon to delete.

2) In the notes view, select the notes you want to delete and press "move to trash"

3) On a single note, press the "kebob" (three dots) icon and choose "delete"

Thank you very much JT. It took some doing because when I long press on a word in the highlighted section I routinely open the dictionary and a menu to highlight, share, add a note, etc. with no trash can. But if I am persistent I can get the menu you mention to appear. Thanks again for your very helpful reply. I'm clipping and saving it!

My apologies. They have changed the behavior recently. Just tap the highlight.
