    How to remove yellow highlight?

    Asked by jlockley07 on April 07, 2015 at 11:48 AM

    The entire background of the Check Box block turns yellow when a user checks one of the check box items. It won't go away unless you click outside the check box block.

    I'm facing the same issue, and am unable to find "Field Styles" under my Preferences tab as I suspect Jotform has updated its layout since this this answer was last posted. How can I get around this problem?
