It will be nice to have an improved highlight.
I attached a picture, where the 1st text is highlighted by changing the opacity.
The 2nd text was highlighted using different layer interaction. I am using a gimp, so the layer with highlighted polygon has the mode "multiply".

    Unfortunately, as far as I know libgnomecanvas (on which xournal relies
    for on-screen display) does not allow different compositing modes, so
    until there's a major code rewrite to a different canvas that supports
    other compositing methods, we are stuck with the current highlighter
    behavior.

      Hmmm, that's a shame.
      This would be a great feature! :)
