With the new "drop down" color palette for Highlighting (LibreColors) and a keyboard shortcut applied, the keyboard shortcut for highlighting doesn't apply any color. The shortcut reverts the color of the selected text to "No Fill" if the text is highlighted, though. (This works in OpenOffice 3.3.0 with the old floating color palette.)
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Writer document
2. Go to Tools > Customize... > Keyboard
3. Select Format from the Category list and Highlighting from the Function list
4. Apply it to the keyboard combination of your choice (I chose Cmd+Y)
5. Click OK
6. Type anything in the Writer document
7. Select some text
8. Press the keyboard combination from 4 above
The text remains unhighlighted.
The text should be highlighted like if the toolbar button was clicked.
Steps to reproduce, continued:
9. Click the Highlighting button in the toolbar and make sure the text is highlighted
10. Press the keyboard combination from 4 above
The text becomes highlighted
The text becomes highlighted
As illustrated above, the keyboard shortcut works as expected for unhighligting, but not for highlighting.
Reproducible (?) with "LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC1 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:301)]". I associated <ctrl+f5> to 'Format - Highlight' (or in German: 'Format - Zeichenhintergrund').
I can confirm reporter's observation that higlighted text will become text without highlighting when I press <ctrl+f5> after having selected that text. That's unexpected, I also would have expected that a click on the "Highlighting" icon would have been simulated.
But that also works in the same way with LibO 3.3.3 Portable, OOo 3.1.1. OOo 3.4 seems to do nothing with 'Format -Highlighting' via shortcut.
Nevertheless, IMHO this is a bug.
And BTW: A shortcut for 'Format - Font Color Fill' will work as expected and simulate a click on the 'Font Color' icon.
BTW: shortcut for 'Format - Font Color' (first item from list) will do nothing, shortcut for 'Format - Font Color' (seconditem from list) will bring up the 'Character Format' dialog; what ever tht might mean.
Althoug consistence with other LibO applications has to be kept in mind, I see this one as a WRITER bug.

If you wish to assign a shortcut for highlighting, select 'Highlight Fill' from the function list and it will work.
To be honest, I’m not entirely satisfied with the solution as proposed by Jay in his “Comment 8” as of “2015-09-20 11:11:05 UTC”. In my opinion it would be really useful if text highlighting using the color as suggested by the “Highlight Color” button on Writer’s “Format” toolbar could be toggled using a keyboard shortcut. However, I haven’t found a way to implement this (being just a ‘casual’ user) yet.
You can go into Tools > Customize > Keyboard and select the keyboard shortcut and then select the Format category and select Highlight Fill and you'll be able to assign the shortcut there. You can find full information here - https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/b/bd/GS5014-CustomizingLibreOffice.pdf
There seems to be a bug in the assignment of the shortcut as it requires a user to first use the Highlight Color (.uno:BackColor) toolbar button to color with yellow before highlight fill (.uno:CharBackgroundExt) can be activated to work with a color.
as of 126.96.36.199 this is still a thing.
This has been a problem for a long time, as I have also had the same issue in earlier versions. I am disappointed to see that it is still not working properly.
As a teacher I have to be able to highlight texts A LOT, when evaluating student works. Having a working keyboard shortcut for this is essential and should be an elementary feature.
As per the original report, the highlight color function works to UNhighligt an already highlighted text, but fails to actually highlight it in the first place.
Now I know there is a highlight fill function that is supposed to be a workaround for this. But no. That's not working properly either. Highlight fill, out of the box does nothing when assigned a shortcut.
As I'm writing this and tinkering with the program (going by earlier comments), I seem to be able to get it to sometimes work. If I first use the toolbar option. Then subsequently I can use the shortcut for highlight fill. But it stops working at random if I do something else in-between. Especially the highlight function, which there are two of, for some reason (one of which doesn't work at all) and the highlight fill seem to actively interfere with one another.
This is clearly not a working solution. It's an un-intuitive mess that has a life of it's own.
Please prioritize this issue to at least normal level. This is such a basic function that it is quite literately a deal-breaker for me and I am sure others as well.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Changing the behavior of the current highlight command is a bad idea, as it appears to be used in existing macros to remove highlighting (e.g. Bug 81231). However adding a new command that will apply highlighting is a valid request, but it can't be done before implementing a global way to store that last highlight color (Bug 72991) and syncing it between color buttons (Bug 82438).
Libre Office 188.8.131.52 installed from the official RPMS on CentOS 7.3.
I confirm Johan Brink's observation on 2016-10-14 that there are now _two_ Highlight Color options, neither of which work, and neither does Highlight Fill work.
Like him, I review documents and must highlight often.
