One w to work past it is to apply the highlighting, flatten, then select the area to be rotated and rotate the selection.

As it this software help to take screen snaps to edit or highlight.
Every time you cannot expect to get every words in pictures to be in horizontal and vertical way.

So, if your background is "White" the color replacement tool does a pretty good job.

However, you need to go through a longer process to get there. You start by using the selection tool.
1.Chose the Polygon tool to make your selection.
2. Open the effects panel and chose Color Replacement.
3. Pick the Background Color you are changing. It will be black by default"I think"You can use the eye dropper to select the area.
4.Chose the color for your Highlighting pen effect. The default colors are dull. I created and saved 100% Red,Yellow,Magenta,Etc. clickable color swaths to the color picker window.
 They work much better for this effect. And it's one click away. Just another tip.



As I said earlier, If you're replacing text on a white background. It works pretty good. But you may need to adjust the "Tolerance Slider" to get cleaner results.
Here's an example of 100% tolerance gone wrong.


Here's an correction. Lowering the tolerance significantly. Making for a much cleaner end result.

Here is that original image, as you can see, the text in "design" is opaque.I thought I should  put that into perspective.


Some colors work better than others.It depends on the color of the background and text you're currently working on.

A member that calls himself Dubie created a pretty good video for applying this technique a few months back. That's where I first learned it from.

He didn't cover tolerance levels or the color picker much. So I wanted to fill in some of the blanks.
Here's the video.
