From the Type list, you can select between four different types of highlights: Category label, Compare, Legend, and Value. With the Measure type you can choose if you want to highlight the element itself or its label. The Category setting is to identify the category by Text or by Position. You can then define either of these two in the Position input box. From the Measure list, you can choose the measure that contains the text or position to highlight.

Deleting highlights

Highlights are deleted by either clicking on a highlighted element and choose Highlight, delete from the right-click menu or removing them in the Highlights tab of the Indications dialog.
