    How to remove the highlight effect in the new UI?

    Asked by pardop1 on April 06, 2016 at 04:25 PM

    Please let me me know where you moved the feature that highlights a field when you click on is so that you cannot read what it says of the writing is in white on your form. It used to be in preferences, but is no longer there. 

    Trying to go live w this for ASAP.

    Seems like this feature was removed from the form preferences; however, you can find it now in the Designer, you only need to click on the Designer icon.

    Once there go to the highlight effect settings under the "Color Scheme" section:

    Then click on the current color and click on the "X" icon, this will remove the color and will set it to transparent, click the "Select" button and that is all.

    You may also paste this CSS code in the Designer:

    .form-line-error, .form-line-active{

        background: none !important;


    It should give the same result as the steps above. 

    Hope this helps.
