I was disappointed, it doesnt bleed but you also ahve to press hard to get it to work and even then its not so bright. they could improve the mecahnics on this too, mine kept pushing back as I press on it -:(
I was looking for a highlighter, something that wouldn't bleed through the pages of my new Bible. This dry highlighter won't bleed through, however, it's entirely too light. Perhaps another color would be more appropriate other than yellow. I will not purchase this item again. I don't like giving a negative review. It DOES come in a neat plastic pouch!!
