@tomh3rtz, you can remove these HiLight Tags on your video clip by opening the footage on the camera's playback screen, then tap the orange markers or badge along the playback slider. This process is pretty much the same as deleting the tags through the Quik for Desktop applications. However, this feature isn't applicable via GoPro App on mobile devices -- the app will only allow you to add HiLight Tags in the video. For reference, see this article.

to remove the highlight tag from videos on the quik story timeline app... when you are reviewing the video, the selected highlight has 16 dots underneath it. press and hold those dots and a red trashcan at the bottom will appear. drag the highlight there to remove

The link is for Quik for Desktop. I’m referring to the iPhone app.

So once a hilight is added in the iOS app it cannot be removed? This is my situation. I added hilights on iPad, I would like to remove some now.

 

The hilights I added on iPad don't appear in Quik for Desktop, so I can't remove them there.

 

Room for improvement here. :)

This is not cool at all, to not be able to remove hilight tags on mobile. Thankfully I just started trying to use them but my recourse is to delete the file and redownload it. Thankfully it was just a 38-second 4k clip but it still takes several minutes to redownload. This needs to be addressed. Hilights are an important part of ensuring your Story is generated the way you want.

You are referring to STORY mode. We are referring to the actual source video clip. It's my understanding that you use the HiLight tag to help the story mode pick the footage. If you put a tag where you didn't want it, by mistake or otherwise, there is no way to remove it short of deleting the file and redownloading it from the cloud.
