May I suggest a workaround?

Print to PDF (right click on each book and "print to selected heading and all subtopics" for each book -- if you use BullZip PDF or PDF Creator (trickier), you can append to previous book so you end up with one PDF). This would be a good AHK script candidate actually unless there is something out there that already converts CHM to PDF directly.

Then open up the PDF in PDF X-Change Viewer (lite / free), and highlight and annotate to your heart's content.
If bad things happen to other people, it's karma. If bad things happen to me, it's kismat!

But that is not direct daddydave.
I was thinking about beyond chm or similar software, better free.

Best regards

You mean something like Hilitext?  That's payware; the last free version is >> here <<

Warning; Hilitext-payware doesn't work as well for me on Vista as it did on XP.  I don't know how well the last free version will work for you on whatever OS you're using.

I think is not what I am looking for.
Seems a powerful search tool. And highlight the term you are searching, but not in the way I can do with adobe acrobat or a similar program.

Don't highlight or personalized a CHM file. Or I think so.
