    It is a highlight effect. It appears on focused inputs.You can remove yellow highlight effect inside of your form builder.

    1. Click "Preferences" at the top of the form builder page.

    2. Change "Highlight Effect" from "Enable" to "Disable" on Advanced page. Just click "Save Changes" button. That's it!


    I have cloned your form and tested on my side. Everything works properly, as you can see:
