If you move the cursor to the top of the screen, the menu bar appears and you can choose any menu command, like annotation, footnote, hightlight etc.Â

When you export a draft, Scrivener ignores any of the "ruler" portions of the styles that you've created in the document. Font formatting is respected; tabs and margins are not. (Scrivener Gold worked properly here.)
1. Some way to highlight text (preferably through a hot key). Currently, it appears that the only way to highlight text is to exit full screen, highlight it, and return to full screen.
And -- not so urgent: nicer highlighing colours, set up options according to one's own taste
2. Because I'm editing, I like having the ruler visible in full screen mode so that I can do some formatting as I edit. Every time I mouse up to the ruler, however, I get bit by Fitt's law, because the menu bar appears immediately. As far as I'm concerned, the menu bar does not need to appear at all, but if it's going to, I think it should appear after a slight delay--not long enough to annoy somene who's trying to trigger it, but long enough to be able to toss the mouse to the top of the screen and then move it down onto the ruler elements before the menu bar appears.

I've changed the title of the toolbar item to "Toggle Highlight" as per AmberV's suggestion. As she pointed out, it has to be "Toggle", because it can remove highlighting as well as add it.

Do you have "Use export text formatting" checked? If so, the ruler and font settings will be overridden by those defined in the Export Settings under View > Project Settings. The ability to have different export formatting was something often requested, and the checkbutton in the Export Draft sheet turns it on by default. If you uncheck that, Scrivener won't touch your formatting when you export.Â

Well, you won't be able to choose your own highlighting colours, that is going a little too far at the moment.
And unfortunately there is no way of adding a delay, as the popping down of the menu is done through a system command that has no options for this.
