    Remove first the CSS codes you injected to your form for that particular matrix field and use the following.


    #cid_682 .form-matrix-table tr td:nth-child(n+23) {

    background: #F2ACFD;



    #cid_682 .form-matrix-table tr td:nth-child(n+16) {

    background: #D360D3;



    #cid_682 .form-matrix-table tr td:nth-child(n+9) {

    background: #5656FF;



    #cid_682 .form-matrix-table tr td:nth-child(n+1) {

    background-color: #A3B2FF;


    As you can see, I have labeled each code with their column names so you can easily identify which column is it for. Feel free to change the colors (bold text) to your preference.


    Hope this helps. Thanks!
