    My form is all black but when I click in the box to enter the email, it turns into this beige color. I would like to change that biege to black. How do I do that?

    Hi Deeksha

    You will need to disable the form's Highlight Effect: Setup & Embed tab > Preferences > Field Styles >

    When done, click "Close Settings" and save the form.

    Incidentally, you may not see an immediate change at http://form.jotform.us/form/20967047349159. If that's the case, view the form at http://www.jotform.us/form/20967047349159 instead. (Sometimes there are latency issues associated with the former.)

    Sould you require further assistance, do let us know.
