Preventing required questions from turning red when answered

    How do I prevent my forms from turning pink when an answer is selected (see attached image)? This happens immediately after clicking an answer to a required field, so it's not like it's an error message for an unanswered required field.


    Also, as a follow up, is there a way to prevent the "All rows required" error message from popping up in a matrix? Every time I check one box, I'm flashed the error message before I can complete the rest.

    1. To remove the Highlight effect, just go to Preferences, Form Styles tab and then set the Highlight effect as disabled, that way you won't see the pink shadow anymore



    On regards to matrix, I see what you mean, it seems the matrix shows the error too soon, it appears as soon as the user clicks on a single cell, rather than waiting until they user moves on. Let me find out a workaround for this and I'll update you later on.

    Jeanette, do you by chance have an update on making the matrix error go away?

    The thread you just sent me a link to is my own thread and is a separate issue from what I enquired about in this thread. Please reread the initial question and the initial response.

    I do apologize about the confusion our team member had in his last response to you above which I believe was based on the previous last response instead of the initial one.

    Anyhow, Jeanette had responded to your first issue so we consider that resolved.

    As for your follow-up I've moved that to this new thread as a new problem for us to focus on and we'll respond to you there about it asap.
