    How to disable the field highlighting effect?

    Asked by ellie123 on November 10, 2014 at 11:18 AM

    Hello -

    I have form set to a transparent background (which is what I want)...however when a question is selected, it is highlighted in white.

    Because I am using a light colored font, it is difficult to read the field options. How can I change the field highlight color?

    Thanks for your help!

    Pls see mt screenshot for a better explanation:
