Hi John and Eric,

I decided to adopt your approaches, thanks for the suggestions.  So I can use either the response: or ++ to highlight changes in our manuscripts.


#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
 :export (lambda (keyword desc format)
            ((eq 'latex format)
             (format "\\textcolor{red}{%s}" keyword))))
 :face '(:foreground "red"))

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(setq org-emphasis-alist
      (cons '("+" '(:foreground "red"))
            (delete* "+" org-emphasis-alist :key 'car :test 'equal)))

  '(org-latex-text-markup-alist '((bold . "\\textbf{%s}")
(code . verb)
(italic . "\\emph{%s}")
(strike-through . "\\textcolor{red}{%s}")
(underline . "\\uline{%s}")
(verbatim . protectedtexttt))))

You can .... wait for it... make a colored link ;): http://kitchingroup.cheme.cmu.edu/blog/2016/11/04/New-link-features-in-org-9/#org1bc1061

The example there has an html export defined, but you could as easily define a latex exporter. It has some limitations, like it might not reliably work on multiple lines, and you would not want to "highlight" across elements (or the latex will get ugly and probably not work).

I have been working on some ways to get persistent highlighting using overlays for a similar purpose: http://kitchingroup.cheme.cmu.edu/blog/2016/11/10/Persistent-highlighting-in-Emacs/

so far I only can get reliable output to html. Latex seems possible, again if you don't highlight across too many elements. It is a work in progress here: https://github.com/jkitchin/scimax/blob/master/ov-highlighter.el

Towards the bottom of https://github.com/jkitchin/scimax/blob/master/cm-mods.el I was working on some ways to use the criticmarkup  in conjunction with git diffs to automatically make these kinds of diffs. 

I can't say I am fully satisified by any of these solutions (that is why there are so many of them ;)

I use this macro to highlight text in html/latex(pdf):

#+MACRO: COLOR @@html:<span style="color: $1">$2</span>@@@@latex:\textcolor{$1}{$2}@@

Example use:
{{{COLOR(red, This information is important.)}}}

It doesn't though highlight the text in red in org-mode.

Hi there,

When revising manuscripts, I usually highlight the changes (response to reviewer) in red. I use typically do this as follows:
(1) #+latex_header: \newcommand{\response}[1]{\textcolor{red}{#1}}
(2) \response{changes)

Is there a more elegant way to do this ?  It would be nice if I could change the color of the select text in both org and the exported latex file to red. Seeing the highlighted text in org would be a huge plus.
