There are two ways to highlight terms within DISCO: using Search Hits or using Term Highlighting. To access both, on the DISCO home page, in the main menu, click Term Highlights.
From here, you may administer both items. First, when a search hit (that is, when a term within your search is found in a document) occurs, you may choose the default highlight color as yellow, green, blue, red, or orange.
You can also create global term highlights that will automatically highlight a term when in the document viewer, regardless if the term was a search hit or not. You also have the option for what highlight color the term will be.
To add a term:
- On the Term Highlights page, in the Global section, click Add One.
- Enter the text you want highlighted and choose a highlight color from the dropdown. To have multiple terms highlighted with the same color, enter the terms to be highlighted, each separated by semicolons.
- Click Add Another to add another term, or click Save if you are done.
Within DISCO you may add up to five different colors of highlights. We recommend that if you'd like more than one term to be highlighted for each color, separate the terms with a semicolon. For example, if I wanted the following terms to be highlighted in red, I would enter "Enron; Viper; Contract".
