One of the few things I have been unable to figure out how to do with this spectacular program is to create strong highlighting of areas of the picture that I want to call attention to.

I can use the "Draw highlighting rectangle..." tool to add color and then adjust the transparency to highlight.  But no matter which settings I use -- including changing blend mode -- I don't seem to be able to get that intense bright highlight in red, yellow, green, blue, etc. that you usually see in programs like word processors.  It is always kind of muted.

Is there something I can do to improve this?

I was going to suggest changing blend mode -- that would be my first guess.. Can you attach an example of the best you can get it and then an image of some other application showing the look you'd like.
This is obviously an important feature so I'd like to improve it if I can see a way to do so.
