I've created a Fillable form using prepare form in Acrobat Pro DC and used added text fields and it works well in the preview except that all of the text boxes are blue. I would like my users who are going to fill out the form to not see the blue text boxes; the text boxes should just look transparent (like nothing is there) until they put their cursor in the answer area.
Does anyone know how to edit/fix this? I'm not a proficient user of Adobe so I may be making newbie mistake!
In the preferences of Acrobat you can disable the field highlighting.
Thank You for the information....Now if I do that for my settings on my computer will it show up as a transparent field when I send it out to others who have not change their settings?
The setting that you’re looking for is user specific. This means that you can change the preferences the way you want to see the form on your computer, but not on the user’s machine.
You may do so by going to Edit>Preferences>Forms Uncheck the option of Show Border Hover color for fields.
Unfortunately, you can only change the color of the form fields that will appear when the user clicks on it, but the Blue fields that appear are the default setting and can only be changed by the user and not the sender of the form.
I hope that this answers your query.
I spend almost an hour figuring it out so here's the solution. None of thye solution on this page helped me im using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC heres to get rid of annoying blue boxes
View--> Show/Hide--> Rulers and Grids ---> Grid.
Have a good day.
This doesn't remove the highlights of form fields.
My apologies, I thought we were talking about blue the grid here.
