    Eliminating Highlight when Hovering over Fields

    Asked by shainarae1021 on October 27, 2016 at 02:04 PM

    Hi There!


    I am trying to create a new form, but am having difficulty with finding how to disable the highlight that appears when you hover over or are typing in a certain field. It makes the colors very hard to read the text when I visit the url of my form.


    Thanks in advance!

    You can disable this in the Form Designer. Under the Design tab, open the Color Scheme section. Click the options icon beside the "Simulate highlight". After that, make the background transparent. Here's a screen capture:

    You may also insert this CSS code to make the highlight's background color transparent.

    .form-line-active {
    background-color: transparent !important;

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
