[FEATURE REQUEST] Enable Text Highlighting in Text Box for LibreOffice Writer

Text Highlighting is an excellent feature in LibreOffice Writer, however, I would like to see that capability expanded and included for Text inside a Text Box.

Could this feature be created and enabled for future versions of Writer?

In LO, it is available, perhaps not on the toolbar.

Create a text box, place some text in the text box, right click on the menu (while the text is editable in the text box), customize toolbar, toolbar name at the top of the dialog should be Text Object, scroll down the list to “Font Color” (might not be there), click Add, Category: Format, Command: Highlight Color (the 2nd choice – I have two Highlight Color, one worked for the textbox), Click Add, Close, Okay.

Highlight color should also show up on the Sidebar with the Character Formats.

Awesome! Worked for me in LibreOffice (x64)
