Hello,

Can someone please provide the Javascript code used to remove the blue highlight (or any color) that appears on fillable fields of a form for any user that views it? I want any user that opens the form to see no background on fields and also checkboxes. I've created my own background in InDesign and the auto-highlighting disrupts the design. I am not a programmer so please provide instructions on how to do this. I have the most current version of Acrobat running on Windows 10. Thank you!

Hi kathy, I hope you are doing well. Just wanted to ask you if you found the solution to your question.

I am facing the same problem. I have created a pdf measurement tracker in  AI and now i was using adobe acrobat pro dc to make it fillable. when i am saving it, its giving me the default blue color in the fillable fields which just disrupts the design. Can you please let me know how can i fix this? I have tried many methods but nothings seem to be  working. 

I will appreciate your response

thanks

Yes, the Javascript method worked for me:
Tools>Javascript
Click Document Javascripts at the top.
Create a Script Name>Click Add
In the Javascript Editor box, remove any script that is there and enter this exactly:
app.runtimeHighlight = false;
Click OK
Click Close and Save
This should turn off the highlighting of anyone opening this file, but I believe it only works when they are viewing the pdf in Acrobat Pro. Opening in browsers or other viewers may not work.
Hope this helps.
