    How to stop a label from turning black when the focus is on the field

    Asked by abajan on July 24, 2011 at 06:03 PM


    This post is a response to a reply by Lunatic447 in Change the size of "This field is required"?. It was put here because it is a different issue to what that thread is about.


    Hi Lunatic447

    To stop the labels from vanishing (they're not really vanishing but turning black) do the following:

    1. With the form loaded in the builder and the Setup & Embed tab active, click Preferences > Field Styles
    2. Enable the Highlight Effect, save the form and then Disable it and save the form again

    It's probably some sort of bug but that seems to be the way it works.
