Is it possible to have lightlights stay on, and not just for mouse-over, etc.? For example, I would like to highlight Q2 in all my dashboards/sheets and print them to PDF and have it stick/stay on. I haven't found a way to keep highlights on in this way and am thinking it's not possible. I might need to go the shading route(?).
If I understand you correctly, you should be able to do this by creating a highlight action between all of the worksheets on your dashboard--so that every Quarter is highlighted. Then, when you go to Print to PDF, it should appear as it does in the workbook.
