I've set the keyboard shortcut for highlighting to ctrl+h. The hightlighting color is yellow. But then, when I try to highlight text the way I would normally underline text (by selecting it and then pressing ctrl+h), I do not get what I expected. Instead, the highlighting color changed and the text was not highlighted. Is anyone else able to get this to work?

Tools>Customize...

Category: Format
Function: Highlight Fill (rather than "Highlighting" I think)

Thank you. That works. I think it is messy how the items are named though.
