how to highlight text in a pdf or docx file which is read-only ?

docx files are only read-only if you don't save them to your computer first.
PDFs are not meant to be editable. most of the time, they just contain pictures.

Read only is a function of file safety. It merely keeps a file from being overwritten. Once the file is open, you should be able to highlight and copy any text. Caveat: If the PDF or DocX is merely showing a scan or photo of the text, there will be NO way to highlight and copy it, even if the file were not read only.

Save it as a copy. Then edit the copy.
