    How do I prevent the highlighting which appears on focused fields, incorrectly filled fields or unfilled fields?

    Asked by fcfritas on December 29, 2014 at 10:34 AM

    Hi, whenever I click on any option of my form , it appears a white background box making it blind and nobody can see other options in the form.

    It happens when its already online

    Thanks for asking. To prevent this, please do the following:

    1. With the jotform loaded in the form builder, click Preferences > Field Styles and set the Highlight Effect to Disabled:

    If you also wish to remove the pink background when required fields are not filled, inject the following CSS:

    .form-line-error {
     background: none;

    If you need more help with this, please let us know.
