How can we add or remove text shading

When using WPS Writer to edit documents, we can add shading to highlight some parts of the text content. So how can we add and remove text shading?

Take this document as an example. If we want to highlight the students mentioned in the notice, we can select this part of the content and click the Character Shadingcommand button in the Hometab. By this, we can quickly add a gray shading to the selected content.Gray is the default color.

If we want to delete the shading, just click the Character Shadingbutton again.

We can also change the color of the shading if we want. After selecting part of the content, click the Page Layout tab, then click the Page Borderscommand button, and then the Borders and Shading dialog box will pop up.

Click theShading tab in the dialog box. We can select the color we want in Fill to add text shading here. Remember to select text in Apply tounder Preview in the dialog box interface. Only by this can you add shading to the text.

Also we can select No Color inFill, select Clear in Patterns Style, and then clickOK to clear the shading.
