The Highlight Element is a simple element, that allows you to highlight a section of content on your page. The Highlight Element is an Inline Element, which means it’s meant to be used in conjunction with existing text, and can only be accessed through the Avada Builder Element Generator, or through the Inline Editing function in Avada Live. See below to read more about this useful element.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of Avada 7.4, the Highlight Element now also comes with a Gradient Font Color option.
