1. What is live text?
Live text is text that the user can search, select, highlight, copy, and paste. Live text is the text that can be inspected. Another term for live text is "inspectable text".
2. How can I tell what text is live/inspectable?
Click Show Inspectable Text on the Master or Sample Preview toolbars. The live/ inspectable text is underlined in red. Click it again to remove the highlights.

4. I'm having trouble selecting text to underline or cross out; How can this be fixed?
Try toggling Select By Area at the bottom right, clearing the faulty selection, and starting again. Once toggled, you can select text by reading order instead, allowing you to easily underline or cross out complete sentences in the middle of paragraphs.
