    Dropdown Options Have Black Text on a Black Background, Making Them Unreadable

    Asked by JuliaRogers on September 14, 2015 at 01:20 PM

    Hello, this is kind of urgent for me as I just noticed that my pull downs menus have black background with black text on my forms.  How do I fix this so the options are visible? I'd like the text to be black on white background, like the rest of the form if possible

    Please and thank you

    Hi Julie,

    Please do the following:

    1. Click the Designer button:

    Click the CSS tab and in its work area (indicated by the second arrow below)

    enter the following rule:

    .form-dropdown option {
       background-color : #FFF !important;

    3. Save the form

    If you need further help with your forms, we'd be happy to provide it.
