The free Awesome Highlighter service gives you an easy solution to get around this clunky way to direct a user's attention to just one part of the page. Here's how to do it:
- Copy the URL of the page you want to share with someone
- Go to the Awesome Highlighter page and paste the URL in the box in the center of the page
- The page will reload showing you the page at the URL you entered and turn your cursor into a yellow highlighter pen. Select the text that you want to highlight and click "Done" on the screen.
- You are then given a unique URL that you should send to the user.
Here's the very much shorter URL for the highlighted version:
On the highlighted page from RUSA, you'll see at the top a grey horizontal bar from the Awesome Highlighter service that offers a link to the "original webpage."
