    To disable the highlight effect, just do the following:

    a. Click the "Preferences" button in the form builder

    b. Click the "Field Styles" tab in the preferences window

    c. Set Highlight Effect to "Disabled".

    To remove the red background for the required field validation, just simply inject the following custom CSS codes:

    .form-line-error {

      background: transparent !important;


    Add these codes at the bottom of the existing ones. Here's how to inject: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Worked perfectly, but another problem happened. As the main label when "highlight" happens, turns to its old color.

    I injected the CSS code for the "email" label and it works as it maintain the color but I hope there is other way for that as will mean doing all labels manually.


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Riskke,



    Can you try injecting the custom CSS code below to change the color of all the label in your form? 

    .form-label {

      color: #EED07E;
