    I am trying to create an online PDF Student Guide with field learners can enter notes. The version I created in Jotform looks great, except when published, the text fields are an ugly pink.

    1. How do I change these field to white, so some users can print it out and write notes freehand if desired?

    2. How do I remove the warning that "In order to submit this form you should open it with Adobe Reader"? (BTW, this warning appears even when I do use Adobe Reader.)

    The color of the text area is determined by the browser used to open the PDF, the same thing with the PDF viewer. Unfortunately, I find no option to change the color in the PDF. The color is there as an indicator that the area is fillable. 

    The warning won't appear if you open the PDF using Adobe Acrobat Reader
