    Hello Arab,

    You can check all the spans in the document and extract the text from the ones with a particular highlight color. The following snippet demonstrates how you can get the text from the spans highlighted with red color:
    List<string> highlightedStrings = new List<string>();
    foreach (var span in this.radRichTextBox.Document.EnumerateChildrenOfType<Span>())
        if (span.HighlightColor == Colors.Red)

    Hope this helps.
