Surely toggling makes sense only if there are only two choices
available: highlighted or not highlighted? But that's not so:
instead, there is a wide range of colours available for highlighting.
You'll notice that the chosen colour does stick. Evidently the
designers though it was more likely that users would want to
highlight other parts of the text with the same colour than to change
their minds and remove previous highlighting.
It occurs to me that you are probably misusing this facility.
Highlighting appears in the printout: it is a formatting facility,
not something used to mark some text temporarily whilst you are
working. Have you tried comments? Go to Insert | Comment (or
Ctrl+Alt+C). Type a comment (or just some random letter or two). You
will see the selected text highlighted - but conveniently in such a
way as will not print. When you wish to remove this marking, click
the down-arrow in the comment box and select Delete Comment. You
don't even need to select the marked text again!
Either I'm too thick ...
I wouldn't assume that.
These are not bugs of course, just suggestions that'd make things a
little easier. Is this the best way of posting such things?
It's perfectly sensible to start here with a discussion of your
ideas, but to suggest enhancements you need to do so at the web site.

I trust this helps.
