    In this form, there are radio buttons and check boxes.  When I select an option, the container holding that field turns a bright color, but the text does not change to black like it does in other fields in the form.  This only happened recently when I rearranged some items by shrinking them and adding multiple columns to results; no change was made to the theme or underlying code.  Not sure how this could have affected it, but I can't seem to get it to return to a readable state when an option is selected.  I have other forms that do not have this issue at all.  Essentially, the text is white and does not change to black like in other fields when an option is selected.

    Can you please try Injecting this code into your form Custom CSS and see if it works?

    .form-radio-item label, .form-checkbox-item label {color:#000;}.

    If you not sure how to Inject a Custom CSS, please refer to the link below

    That makes the text black all the time.  The behavior of the elements before was they were white.  Then, upon clicking on an option, the text turned black to be readable.  Having the text black all the time on a dark gray background is nearly as difficult to read as having white text on a light tan background - though, it is slightly better.  I'm just wondering where things got off....  Here is another form just like the problematic form that behaves just fine:

    In addition to my colleague have said, you can also try to disable the highlight effect if you just want to.

    Thanks for the suggestion!  Removing the highlight effect does work in making the form always readable, and I've updated the form to display that way for now.  However, that doesn't address the original issue of why the form is behaving this way.  Any thoughts on that?

    I have noticed that if field is clicked label is  changing to readable color but not the text beside the box or beside the radio button doesn't change to readable color. I will escalate this to our Level 2 supporters. Thanks

    Sounds good.  Thanks for your help.  It's a minor, nitpicky thing and we have a workaround for now, but please let me know how it works out.

    Please try to change the secondary color. It affects the text color on the text beside check boxes.

    Thanks

    I have no problems changing the secondary color.  It displays just fine no matter what color I choose and remains the same whether under the highlight effect or not.  Is that what you wanted me to confirm?  The color still does not change to black when under the highlight effect. 

    I have set the form back to disabled highlight effect and white text for secondary color.

    @AgPhd

    I was checking the settings on your other form and this is what you have set:

    I have tried to place the same settings on a clone of a new form:

    This are the settings on this clone:

    Hope that helps!

    Works great now!  Wow, I feel foolish...  No idea how that got changed in the first place, then couldn't find the right option to update.  Thanks for all your help and patience.
